Are You Ready to Transform Your Life? - DeAnna Torres, CCHT, Transformational Hypnotherapy


What is a Shamanic Healing Session?
In the shamanic understanding, the primary cause of illness is energetic: the illness happens first in your energy field, and then manifests physically in your body. 
 
The three major causes of illness or dis-ease addressed in the session are: 1. Intrusions, which are basically anything that’s stuck in your energy field that’s not yours.  2. Disharmony, which is living out of alignment with what you know to be true.3. “Soul loss”, or fragmentation of your energetic essence.

In cultures all over the world, shamans and mystics have recognized the holographic nature of our energy for millennia. Like a hologram, we can divide our soul energy (the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the body) and still have a complete picture: every part of the soul contains all the information of the whole, even though the strength of the original is diminished by doing so. 

Indigenous healers have also recognized a unique coping mechanism which allows us to survive physical and emotional traumas, called “soul loss”, though fragmentation better describes what happens. This is not synonymous with some religion’s idea of "losing your soul", and neither are we talking about your Soul/ Oversoul, which is the larger personal Soul field your mental/emotional-soul merges with between your incarnations on Earth. 

In soul loss, some or all of our energy leaves our bodies during traumatic events, carrying with it the very strongly emotionally-charged imprint of the trauma, which could be anything from accidents, illnesses, natural disasters, war, physical, sexual or emotional abuse, the sudden death of a loved one, job loss, etc.   People describe this phenomenon when they say they were watching the event in slow motion or from a distance, as if it were happening to someone else. Modern psychologists and mental health professionals see the results of this and know that dissociation has occurred, but they cannot tell you where the fragmented parts have gone, or how to get them back. 

Those parts of our emotional/mental energy are supposed to be quickly reintegrated once the traumatizing event has passed and the individual is safe enough to heal from the emotional pain. However, when a person is not aware of that or circumstances do not allow for that to happen, those energy “imprints” either stay stuck in the  matrix of a specific location (so-called “residual hauntings”) or they go to other places in the spirit realms where they feel safe. 

Unfortunately, as a result, that amount of life-force energy is no longer available to the individual, and his or her physical and emotional health often deteriorates. When soul fragmentation is major, chronic, or on-going, the person is left in a depleted energy state which is believed to be the main reason for succumbing to sickness and disease, and even to premature death.

What is Soul Retrieval? 
Soul retrieval is the process by which a person trained in shamanic healing works with their team of Spirit Allies to find and restore lost energy parts to a client. This is a team effort, initiated by the client who must first ask for help.  In fact, the request is a key element to the protocol because it signals the Spirit World that the client is ready to begin the healing process and it also gives the practitioner permission to work on his or her behalf.
 
What are the Symptoms of Soul Fragmentation?
Fragmentation is easy to spot if you know what you're looking for. Here are of some of the classic symptoms, though not everyone will experience all of these:
  • Feelings of being scattered, of not being "all here".
  • Blocked memory--an inability to remember parts of one's life.
  • An inability to feel or receive love from another.
  • Emotionally "flat-lined".
  • A sudden onset of apathy or listlessness.
  • A lack of initiative or enthusiasm for something one used to enjoy.
  • A lack of joy.
  • A failure to thrive.
  • An inability to make decisions.
  • Chronic negativity.
  • Addictions and living "on autopilot".
  • Suicidal thoughts and/or tendencies.
  • Melancholy or despair ("Eeyore syndrome").
  • Chronic depression.

 "If I don't have those major symptoms, but I've lived through some traumatic events, do I still need to have a Soul Retrieval done?" 

Traumatic events are notorious for affecting some people to the point of disability, and for affecting others not at all.  One person may be energized by the loss of a job and see it as a catalyst for finally launching out into doing what they really love; and yet, another person may respond to the same situation by nose-diving into depression and alcohol addiction.  

Then there are those seemingly-little events which most people would make it through just fine, but some people are deeply traumatized by -- such as being called upon in class when you were not paying attention.   

Many people know instinctively that they are "missing something", even if they don't have any extreme symptoms. When they hear about soul retrieval, they have an "aha" moment and it just makes sense.  Ultimately, I encourage you to trust your intuition about what is right for you at this time. 
  
What are The Benefits of Soul Retrieval?
The following benefits are possible with soul retrieval, although there is no guarantee what will happen, all soul retrievals are different:
  • You may find it easier to move forward on an issue that has been troubling you.
  • You may feel a sense of being more fully present in your life.
  • You may find it easier to make certain decisions or make certain changes.
  • You may find that some characteristic you have struggled with such as hopefulness, confidence, anger…may improve or go away after a soul retrieval.
  • You may find that you can connect to things more easily.
   
Additionally, it is possible for the following challenges to be brought up with a soul retrieval:
  • You may have feelings of sadness or depression because of the time that went by since this part of you left.
  • Issues that you have previously been unwilling to deal with can come to the surface.
  • You may find that you can no longer stay in a situation which you have been living with - such that you find you must make changes in your life.
  • You may find feelings that you previously did not wish to deal with assert themselves, such as grief or anger.
  • You may begin a long healing process.
 
In a few cases a person may literally experiences a complete turn- around of their life to a more joyful way of being. For others, it begins a process of changes that take time to fully emerge.  And of course, there are those who feel that not much really happened as a result of their soul retrieval, and it is not until months or years later when they are able to see a pattern of change that was initiated at that time.  

How does this process work in a therapeutic setting? 
I am able to offer my clients two choices in a soul-retrieval session.  There is the traditional approach, where I will journey on your behalf and report my experience out loud, or I can guide you in your own healing journeys through hypnosis.  

How long does a session last?
Please plan on at least 1.5 hours, though Shamanic Healing sessions vary, depending on the needs of the individual client, and can last up to 2.5 hours.  This gives us plenty of time to dialog about what brings you to seek my services at this time, to impart some basic teaching on what will be happening, and to brief you on post-session self-care.
