What is it and Who Can Benefit From it.
is a question that always comes up when discussing Traditional Shamanism. It is the one form of healing that most people consider unique to Shamanism. It is also dangerous and not for everybody.
Soul retrieval is a Shamanic skill used to heal a person from illness. Shamans believe that all illness comes from losing power or giving power away to something or someone.
It may be spirits from the Inner World that you have traded your soul
power with to get fame or fortune or love.
It may be a living being who has an energetic cord attached to you and is sucking part of your soul away.
It can be a generational soul loss that happened many years ago with your grandfather or great grandmother
that you are not even aware of that has taken away part of your family
Soul loss can also be caused by a traumatic experience, a car accident, a sudden death in the family, a violent crime. These things can cause a loss of vital power or soul loss and must be restored to bring health and healing of body, mind and spirit back to the patient.
The Shaman does not use his or her own power to retrieve the lost portion of soul. If he or she did, soon the Shamanwould be suffering his or her own power depletion.
The Shaman travels to the appropriate Inner Worlds to barter, negotiate, deal with the possessing entities to retrieve the soul portion that is missing. Usually the Shaman's ally knows right where it is and who is holding it. But the Shaman must be a master negotiator to be successful at soul retrieval.
The Shaman expects to meet some gruesome characters there who
are not willing to give up the soul portion because it provides them
with life essence, with grace- the one
thing humans can amass and take with them from lifetime to life time.
These entities cannot become human, but oh, they do want to! They will
do most anything to get a human to give up part of their soul. They
offer humans riches, and love and business success, material wealth
and fame for a soul. But these offerings, these barters turn out to be shabby knock offs of the real thing.
It is very difficult to remain in this negotiation with full intent as other beings are trying to confuse the Shaman and take his or her attention away so the soul possessing entities can escape this encounter. The Shaman must rely on the help of his or her ally to keep these other entities from attacking the Shaman's own soul.
It is not very often that someone with a soul goes into these Inner Worlds, so all the non-human entities would like to get that soul for their own use. Sometimes Shamans lose their way in the Inner Worlds and they never return.
Yes, the True Shaman risks his or her own life in a Traditonal True Soul Retrieval. Who are you willing to risk your life for? The Traditional Shaman is truly dedicating her life to you.

One example of a Soul Retrieval
I can describe one soul retrieval I did on a woman of middle age who was suffering from heart palpitations. I prepared myself with a three day fast and then had the
woman I will name Mary come to visit me at my cabin. I asked her to lie down by the fire and to relax and try to keep her mind at ease. My friend Lucy began to rattle for me and I let myself go to the entrance
of the Inner Worlds and I met my ally there for this journey.
I held the tail of the wolf as he pulled me down, down into the UnderWorld. We came out in a dark and damp place that reminded me of an outdoor basement. There were dark brambly vines growing everywhere and a swampy ground with the sun obscured by tall grey foliage everywhere. There were creatures scurrying on the ground, hiding under the rocks and slithering into the swampy ground.
My ally knew exactly where to take me and we approached a small house made of mud and slime without windows. As I approached the doorway I heard screams
and whistles coming from inside. The closer I got the more horrendous
were the noises. I kept my resolve to retrieve this woman's soul part that had been taken by whatever was inside this hut and continued forward.
I looked inside the door and I could barely make out in the dark two short naked humanoids without any hair or clothes holding a piece of Mary's heart and
admiring it while they screamed and shrieked with delight. They didn't
see me at first and I watched them petting it and stroking the piece of heart as though it were a kitten. I brought my torch up and threw a great beam of light into their light and they shrieked with horror.
They tried to run away but I blocked the door with my great size and my
I let them speak first. They asked me what I wanted with a fearful shudder in their voices and I told them that they must relinquish the piece of heart to me. They cried, "Never!" and again tried to run by my legs out into the cold damp evening. I blocked their escape again. I asked,
"What would you take to relinquish the heart?" and they answered,"Never!"They began to pelt me with little stones from the floor of their hut. But the stones were very small and they didn't have many so I ignored it and again I spoke in a loud voice, "You must relinquish the heart!". They again replied,"Never!"
I brought my torch even further into the hut as the bright light seemed to hurt their eyes and they were turning away from me to protect themselves from the flame. "How did you get this heart?", I demanded. "She gave it to us! She
said we could have it because it was broken anyway! But it is not broken! Look how it beats! We like how it beats!"
I reached into my cape and pulled out a clock. I wound it up and showed them how it beats. They came closer to have a look at it. I noticed that many creatures were
being attracted to me in this place from outside and it was getting more and more dangerous for me to be here. I had to end this thing quickly before I was attacked by other beings who were attracted to my
own heart here.
I made the one holding the heart reach out for the clock with both hands. As he loosened his grip on the heart, my wolf ran behind him and grabbed Mary's heart in his mouth. At the same time I threw the clock into the far corner of the room. As the entities scrambled to catch the clock I grabbed the tail of my wolf and we flew out of there and up into the night sky. We
reached the opening we came in from and whisked our way back to the Outer World. The wolf gently placed the piece of heart into my hands from his mouth and I thanked him once again for his protection and help.
As I saw Mary still lying on the floor by the fire, I placed the piece of heart in my mouth and placed my mouth over hers and blew with one great breath, that piece of heart back into Mary. She was startled and took a great gasp inward and seemed to then catch her breath as she started to sit up. I helped her to sit up and gave her some water to drink and asked her how she felt....
Mary said she had a fullness in her chest now. I remembered that the entities had told me that Mary had given them the piece of heart because it was broken andso Mary and I talked for quite a while about what caused her to give this piece of her heart away. She told me how many years ago she had loved a man so much and she gave her heart to him. But they were never able to have a relationship or marry because he died in a plane crash.
She went on with her life and finally did marry and have children but after 20 years, that marriage came to an end. It was then that she realized how much she missed her true love and how her heart was really
broken over that first love. She had asked for someone to take her broken heart and let her forget about how much she missed her truelove. It did help her not to feel so sharply the pains of that loss.
But ever since then she had been having palpitations. She forgot about the real reason and went to the doctor for the symptoms. After many gruelling tests for cardiac arrythmias, the doctor could still find no
explanation and that is when she came to see me.
To this day, Mary is symptom free. I want to put a disclaimer here because medical science disapproves of this kind of healing. So let me say that soul retrieval is in no way a curative, a medical process, a healing of anything and if you have any medical condition I recommend that you consult with a qualified doctor.
I am not a doctor of any kind. The work I do is completely spiritual in nature and not in any way related to the medical profession. I offer a course in Traditional Shamanism that brings people to re-member their own skills and talents, natural abilities.
There are a lot of people walking around suffering mental and physical symptoms of this disjointment and I want everyone to feel whole. So my mission is to reconnect people with their own inner powers and being. You do not have to become a Shaman to take this course.
