When we experience trauma, we go through what the natives call "soul loss" or more commonly, dissociation. Our consciousness decides it can't be present for the event and leaves our body to protect itself. We continue this pattern throughout our lives, losing pieces of our soul, or life essence, with each new trauma. Historically, the local medicine person would perform a ceremony to traverse the unseen worlds, locate the missing soul fragments, and return them to the individual. The whole family and community would attend to support the individual and celebrate the welcoming home of their soul and their healing story. This special ceremony has been passed down over the years, and Patricia is now able to perform the ceremony for you. Her teacher studied with Sandra Ingerman - see her words below and visit her site for a more detailed description:
Soul Retrieval by Sandra Ingerman - visit her site on soul retrieval
Imagine yourself sitting in a circle with members of your community. You have gathered together to support one community member who is suffering from a traumatic experience. You know that if one person is suffering and is ill it effects the entire community. So you have come to help hold the space for healing to happen.
It is dark and the stars are shining bright in the night sky. The air is still. Everyone feels held in the loving arms of the universe and there is no doubt that healing will happen for all gathered here.
The shaman begins to drum and dance calling the power of the universe to her as she puts her egoic self aside and becomes an empty vessel that fills with the help of the spirits.
The client lies quietly in the center breathing deeply to be in a receptive state to receive back his lost soul; his lost vitality.
The shaman sings her journey out loud as she tracks down where the soul has fled. And on finding it returns and blows it deeply into the heart of the client filling the entire body with the light of life.
There is a great joy for all as one heals all are healed. The community is now whole again and can be in peace and harmony.
The work is done.
Many other things occur when we experience soul loss and trauma, and even daily stress and tension. We tend to pick up misplaced energy that can do damage to our bodies. This can appear as unexplained pain, discomfort, or energetic blockages. Patricia is able to sense and locate these, and safely remove them from the body. This helps to bring the body's many energetic and electrical systems back online to create more balance, peace, and vitality.
Power Animal Retrieval
Native Americans believe every person has a spirit animal that volunteers to protect them their entire lives and arrives at birth. Through the rest of our lives, we have various animal teachers that come and go to help us with specific medicine needed. Patricia can go into a journey to discover your animal(s) for you and help you understand the lessons they have for you.
