Soul Retrieval / Past Life Healing

N.B. The Soul Retrieval Practitioner’s way of doing healing should not be considered as exclusive method of confronting psychological and/or medical problems. It should be viewed as “in addition to” and not “instead of” orthodox or psychological treatments.

What is soul loss?

As we move through life, many of us encounter situations that are too frightening to deal with, so we block off parts of ourselves, push aside the energy associated with the situation and continue with our lives as best we can.  The ‘wounded’ segment of our personality, however, stays trapped in the event, and like a stuck record, continues to play over and over again, resulting in repetitive behaviour patterns, events, or starts to manifest symptoms of ‘soul loss’.  Therefore, certain women will constantly choose an abusive husband for a marriage partner, or the same person will keep on having car accidents, and why certain individuals are repeatedly hi-jacked. Then there are those people who constantly suffer from pain, anxiety, or stress of unknown origin that does not respond to any form of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, or medical treatment.

*Marie Von Franz, a prominent Jungian analyst wrote, “Soul loss can be observed today as a psychological phenomenon in the everyday lives of the human beings around us. Loss of soul appears in the form of a sudden onset of apathy and listlessness; the joy has gone out of life, initiative is crippled, one feels empty, everything seems pointless”.

Unable to communicate verbally, these ‘wounded aspects of self’ work through the subconscious mind, and the person feels unable to get on with their life’s work, is unable to focus or to concentrate, feels ‘emotionally dead’, ‘spaced out’ and ‘not really present’. Other symptoms include feeling blocked, severe depression, grief and an all-encompassing feeling of fear and different kinds of psychosomatic, emotional, and physical illnesses that do not seem to respond to any form of conventional treatment.

*M.L. Von Franz, Projection and Recollection in Jungian Psychology (Peru, IL:Open Court, La Salle & Condon, 1980)

What is a Soul Retrieval Practitioner?

A Soul Retrieval Practitioner (SRP) is a person who has been trained to enter into deep state of meditation (altered state of consciousness), through the use of meditation, drumming and certain types of shamanic music that activate the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This enables them to have an out of body experience (OEB) and to journey into the Upper, Middle or Lower Worlds, (the Shamanic Model of the Human Mind) in order to retrieve, heal and re-integrate lost aspects of a person’s character that may still be trapped in the memories of past events.

They do this with the help of the spiritual realm. These unseen helpers might be magical beings that care for nature, power animals, the elements, ancestors, gods, goddesses, archangels, saints, ascended masters, or teachers from various religious traditions.

How is Soul Loss treated?

People suffering from ‘soul loss’ need a soul retrieval practitioner, a person who is able to journey, in an altered state of awareness, along a time line on their behalf into a parallel universe, to retrieve those injured aspects of self, still ensnared in the past.

The beauty of soul retrieval is that the person suffering from soul loss does not have to revisit the past or know the origin of the problem. Long-distance sessions now combine past life exploration with healing and soul retrieval..

What about my Doctor?

Soul Retrieval is always "in addition to" and never "instead of" conventional medical or professional psychological care.  It is complementary to all other forms of treatment, in fact people who choose this modality as their preferred a form of healing should also have counselling and follow up with their choice of complementary therapies like aroma-therapy,  reflexology or acupressure etc., that will assist with the clearing and healing process.

What are the Benefits?

Benefits include feeling more focused and orderly, more present, alive, lighter, more able to set boundaries, with increased feelings of self-worth and self-esteem.  They are more in touch with their feelings, feel more powerful as individuals, have boosted energy levels, increased libido and things seem more ‘real’. There is there is a greater richness of ‘being’, heightened awareness and spirituality, people can let go of the past, and of negative feelings like resentment and of abandonment. In many cases their financial situation also improves.

Lives are turned around, people look and feel younger, are more radiant and in control.  They are open and receptive to new career opportunities and relationships. If they could not remember their dreams before, they might now able to do so, and those who could dream, remember their dreams more vividly.  Some people, who were ill and depleted of energy, find that their symptoms disappear, and they have renewed zest for life.

One can never predict the outcome, however, because the experience differs from individual to individual.

Can it cause any harm?

It is not suitable for pregnant women or severely depressed or traumatised people, or individuals who are addicted to or under the influence of hallucinatory drugs or alcohol.

Are there any side effects?

Occasionally a client may experience a "healing crisis" (a temporary worsening of symptoms) before relief is obtained. They might feel sensitive, irritable, or very tired for the first twenty-four hours. Sometimes these symptoms can last for up to a week but will gradually diminish. The abused child who was beaten could not express anger before, may now as an adult feel the need to express that anger, but will be able to handle it in a non-destructive manner. This is temporary and will soon pass.

Others feel very sleepy. This is a healing sleep which helps the ‘Lost Aspects of Self’ to re-integrate.

Dreams may become more vivid, and people who may never have remembered their dreams before may be able to do so now.

In rare cases, memories may come flooding back, this can last anything up to two weeks. Some individuals experience increased bladder or bowel activity, this simply means that they are "clearing" old emotional issues, which is a positive sign. 

It is quite normal for people to start crying during or after a soul retrieval session, as old blocked emotions well to the surface. This is usually a welcome release of pent up emotion that has lain buried for many, many years, and is part of the healing process.

In exceedingly rare cases, some people may experience a temporary depression after a soul retrieval which may last for up to 48 hours.  This is all part of ‘letting go of the past’.

Sometimes people feel disorientated or detached after the session.  It is up to the SRP to ensure that they are fit to drive afterwards.  This feeling could last for a few days.

Some people develop flu’ like symptoms as their bodies discharge old toxic memories associated with the past, but this soon clears as they start to re-integrate and enjoy life from a new and healthy perspective.

"Hi Katharine, just to tell you that the 'Long Distance Soul Retrieval' you did for me on Thursday was magnificent! It's given me so much clarity and inner strength I can't begin to describe my gratitude. I've already referred a couple of people to you from Cape Town. I also had a tremendous amount of fun. And it's cured the insomnia I've suffered from for as long as I can remember. Believe it or not - I'm losing weight as I no longer have the overwhelming need to defend myself. I'm even going to swim in the sea this summer - for the first time in over 30 years! Watch out, Cape Town. Again - my absolute and sincere thanks". Margaret Holton - Cell 072 545 2542
