Negative Emotions That Block Your Chakras

Negative emotions that block your chakras image

Chakras are the energy centers in our subtle bodies and their overall health depends on many factors. One of the most important factors that affect our chakras is our emotions. When we are committed to conscious living and take every moment of our lives with deep awareness our chakras respond to positive vibes and work properly. However, our negative emotions can cause blocks in our chakras and serious health problems.

This article is a quick guide to your negative emotions and problems they may cause. Each negative emotion that you may experience affects a certain chakra and leads to certain health problems. I hope this article will help you understand your health and emotional problems better.

Root Chakra

Muladhara chakra test image

The Root chakra is considered a source of vitality and survival. It is located in the perineum of men and in the cervix of women.

The Root chakra is responsible for the organs of excretion and reproduction, the gland organ and hormonal secretions. It is directly related to the nose and sense of smell, as well as our animal instincts.

People who have a strong Root chakra are usually very strong physically.

In the Vedic tradition, it is believed that those people who have a pure and balanced Root chakra live in harmony with Mother Earth and with the goddess of fertility and prosperity Lakshmi.

The negative emotion that blocks the Root chakra is fear.

What are you afraid of? Do you feel anxiety about certain people or situations? In order to overcome your fears, you have to be honest with yourself first by admitting your fears and emotional problems.

Root Chakra Healing

Effective methods of Root chakra healing are yoga, meditation, earth grounding.

Sacral Chakra

Svadhisthana Chakra Test Image

The Sacral chakra is located above the Root chakra, just above the genitals.

It is associated with the sacral plexus, with the organs and glands of the genitourinary system and reproduction system. The Sacral chakra is connected with the tongue and the sense of taste.

The negative emotion that blocks the Sacral chakra is Guilt.

Guilt is one of the most self-destructive negative emotions that takes away lots of energy. Everyone who experiences it feels like a sticky cocoon of hopelessness. Therefore it is so important to get rid of guilt as quickly as possible. Otherwise, it will take all your energy.

Guilt as a Manipulative Game

First of all, it’s important to realize that the guilt we feel may be caused by manipulative people. Yes, the easiest way to manipulate others is to make them feel guilty.

But to feel guilt is actually pretty dangerous. You see, guilt unnecessarily generates a scenario of punishment. This is how a person’s worldview pattern works: a misdemeanor should be followed by punishment. As soon as you notice the slightest manifestation of guilt, immediately get rid of this mental trash (if you don’t want to spoil your life).

If you live your life up to your creed then there will be no guilt. No one will dare judge you if you do not consider yourself guilty. Being free of guilt will never put you in a situation where someone threatens you with violence. No guilt, no punishment. Watch your subconscious thoughts when someone tries to manipulate you with guilt!

How to Stop Feeling Guilty?

If you can not get rid of the guilt completely, then you need to stop apologizing without a visible reason for this. Here is a special case when the treatment of the disease as a consequence eliminates its cause. You don’t have to convince yourself that you don’t owe anyone anything. Just watch your usual actions, which will require awareness.

If you’ve had a habit at the slightest provocation to apologize, now get another habit to explain your actions only when it’s really necessary. And do it just once without repeating over and over again your explanation (otherwise it will turn into an excuse).

Manipulators, no longer getting the same response from you, gradually fall behind. At the same time, your subconscious mind will get used to the new feeling: if you do not justify yourself then guilt simply does not exist. As a result, the reasons for “redemption” will appear less and less.

Thus, in the chain of feedback, the external form will gradually put in order the internal content: the feeling of guilt will disappear, and as a result, the corresponding problems will disappear too.

Sacral Chakra Healing

The most effective methods of Sacral chakra healing are Tai Chi, aromatherapy, yoga, and meditation.

Solar Plexus Chakra

Manipura Chakra Test Image

The Solar Plexus chakra is located behind the navel within the spinal column.

This chakra affects the digestion process and the absorption of food and prana. It is also connected with the eyes and vision.

The negative emotions that block the Solar Plexus chakra are shame and self-rejection.

The feeling of shame is experienced together with the feeling of one’s own wrongness, badness, and total inadequacy. Now, if you experience that, it means you’re under the influence of toxic shame.

Toxic shame is usually formed during childhood. During sensitive periods of a child’s development, adults criticize have a tendency to criticize their children without giving any support. Children often take criticism as rejection. This is how toxic shame gets created.

Toxic shame often leads to other serious problems such as low self-esteem, lack of will power, nervousness, and poor memory.

How to get rid of shame?

  1. Accept yourself with all your imperfections and give yourself the right to be exactly who you are.
  2. Accept all the shortcomings of other people. Don’t judge anyone! Judging someone, you risk yourself getting into a situation in which you will be judged, your self-esteem will be damaged and you will feel shame.
  3. Refrain from unnecessary comparisons. Stop comparing your own behavior with your own personal expectations or the expectations of others. By rejecting comparisons and protecting yourself from feelings of mismatch between the values of “should be” and “is in reality,” you will find harmony with yourself and stop feeling ashamed.
  4. Try to establish the specific cause of your shame. Evaluate how it is adequate, and if you really have something to be ashamed of, try as soon as possible to correct all your mistakes. Look at the problem from the outside, discarding, at the same time, all negative emotions. To get rid of the feeling of shame, form a clear, objective opinion about the situation, and then mentally make a plan to overcome it.

Solar Plexus Chakra Healing

From my own experience, I can tell you that Reiki therapy is the best way to heal your Solar Plexus chakra.

For more information on how to heal your Solar Plexus chakra read my article “8 Ways To Balance Your Solar Plexus Chakra For Success In Life“.

Heart Chakra

Anahata Chakra Test Image

It’s located above the Solar Plexus chakra, near the heart.

The Heart chakra is connected to the Solar Plexus, the heart, the respiratory organs, and the thymus and is responsible for the qualities of unconditional love, compassion, peace, etc. It is also connected to the hands and the sense of touch.

The emotion that blocks Heart chakra is grief.

When we lose someone we love our heart chakra gets blocked with grief. Emotional pain that seems like it will never end leaves a scar on our hearts.

Coping with the loss of someone or something you love is one of life’s biggest challenges. You may associate grieving with the death of a loved one but, in fact, any loss can cause grief, including: divorce, relationship breakup, loss of health or financial stability, a miscarriage, losing a job, retirement, death of a pet, loss of friendship, a loved one’s serious illness, selling the family home, loss of purpose, loss of safety after a trauma, etc.

How to deal with grief?

There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but there are healthy ways to deal with the grieving process. 

  1. Be Patient With Yourself. Give yourself time to accept what has happened.
  2. Support yourself emotionally by taking care of yourself physically.
  3. Focus on what you can change, and accept what you can’t change. This means mentally, emotionally and spiritually accepting the reality of your loss and letting go of a past that you cannot bring back.
  4. Talk to someone who has experienced a similar loss or someone whose presence is a source of comfort.
  5. Focus on all the reasons you need to return to being the person you were before the loss.
  6. Spend more time with the ones you love.
  7. Live in the present moment.

Heart Chakra Healing

The best way to heal your Heart chakra is Bikram Yoga practice and socialization. The simple opening of our hearts to others is the best way to heal your Heart chakra. Alternatively, meditation is a major treatment for your Heart chakra.

For more information on how to heal your Heart chakra read my article “12 Powerful Ways To Heal Your Anahata“.

Throat Chakra

Vishuddha Chakra For Beginners

The Throat chakra is located in the middle of the throat. This chakra is associated with the cervical plexus of nerve fibers and the thyroid gland. It maintains the purity of the body and mind.

The Throat chakra is connected with the ears and the sense of hearing, with the throat and speech. It awakens acceptance of the vicissitudes of life, mental balance, and sensitivity to the needs of others.

The factors that block Throat Chakra are:

  • lies;
  • poor communication;
  • arrogance;
  • gossips, etc.

Blockage of the Throat chakra occurs if a person chooses to lie not only to others but also to himself. Lying is like a virus that is transmitted from one to the other. It’s hard to be immune to it, especially if all the people around you lie all the time. However, it is possible! Just make a rule to never respond with lies to lies and never lie to yourself. Be honest with yourself and others.

Throat Chakra Healing

Best ways to heal your Throat chakra are chanting mantras, sound therapy, and meditation.

To learn more about other healing methods of the Throat chakra read my article “Every Woman Should Consider A Throat Chakra Healing! Here Is Why“.

Third Eye Chakra

Ajna Chakra Test Image

It is located at the top of the spinal column near the medulla oblongata.

The Third Eye chakra is mainly related to higher consciousness and intelligence.

 The imbalance of this chakra leads to neurological problems, depression, anxiety, paranoia, dizziness, nightmares, insomnia, migraines, sinusitis, poor vision.

The negative emotion that blocks Third eye chakra is illusiveness.

When people are not happy with their lives they try to escape the reality they live in. Often they start using alcohol, drugs, smoking, in order to leave this reality at least for a little bit. However, once they are back from the delusional reality that drugs and alcohol bring them in, they start feeling worse than before.

Another way people escape reality is by playing video games and watching TV. Living delusional lives they feel happy again but this happiness lasts a very short period of time.

Unfortunately, in the modern world, most people do not feel satisfied with their lives and constantly look for new ways to escape reality. Therefore there are not too many people with balanced Third eye chakras. This leads to poor intuitiondepression, hormonal imbalance, anxiety, and other problems.

Third Eye Chakra Healing

There are many different ways to heal your Third Eye chakra:

  • learn to trust your intuition;
  • release repressed negative thoughts and emotions;
  • stargaze at night;
  • take time to rest and relax without any distractions or stimulants (like TV, the Internet, social media, video games, drugs, alcohol, etc.);
  • meditate;
  • yoga (especially effective the bending forward asanas).

To learn more about Third eye chakra healing methods read my article “Best Techniques For Your Third Eye Chakra Activation“.

Crown Chakra

Sahasrara Chakra For Beginners Image

It is located in the crown of the head and is associated with the pituitary gland.

The Crown chakra is the highest point that determines the spiritual life of a person. Physically its work affects the pineal gland and the brain. If we consider the spiritual aspect, Sahasrara chakra has the ability to absorb and produce the highest frequency of Kundalini energy.

A blockage of the Crown chakra can cause chronic fatigue, neurological disorders, and migraines.

The negative emotions that block the Crown chakra are earthly attachments, boredom, and greed.

Basically any attachment creates a block in your Crown chakra: attachment to your home, career, people, car, etc. You need to learn to let go. The hardest part is letting go of the person we love. For doing this you need to understand that love is not material, it exists beyond time and space. When we feel a true unconditional love we can’t be attached. Whether the person you love is with you or far away you feel full of love and happiness. Because your love comes from the inside.

Don’t treat people and material things like they belong to you. Let them go and you will gain your own freedom.

Crown Chakra Healing 

Meditation is a great way to heal your Crown chakra.

To learn more about Crown chakra healing methods read my article “Crown Chakra Blockage Symptoms And Ways To Heal It“.

The Bottom Line

Understanding our negative emotions gives us the opportunity to heal and balance our chakras and improve our health. All we need to do is just be patient, honest with ourselves about our feelings, be willing to change our behavior, re-think our values, and expand our consciousness. Instead of judging ourselves for having negative emotions we need to accept them and only then can we heal.

Remember that any healing should come from deep self-love but not from self-judgment or self-rejection!

Demystifying the 7 Signs of Childhood Trauma In Adulthood

Published

on

Signs of Childhood Trauma Image

Childhood trauma arises when we go through overwhelming stress that exceeds our ability to cope during our formative years. It could be the death of a loved one or a pet, rejection by a close friend, or physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. Stress generates negative emotions that can distort the way you perceive yourself or others. These incorrect perceptions and shadow emotions linger on into our adult life unless you take steps to heal your inner child. So, what are the signs of childhood trauma? And, what can you do to heal and live a fulfilling adult life? Let’s discuss more below.

Common Signs that You Are Struggling with Childhood Trauma

#1: Dissociative Behavior

A childhood trauma survivor finds lots of things in their environment as triggers to re-experiencing the trauma. For example, the sound of a dog barking may remind you of an abusive parent who kept dogs. That sound will make you disconnect from others as your mind drifts back to the negative memories.

The dissociation and soul loss happen as a subconscious way for the survivor to cope. Mostly, it is those random moments when you are unable to connect to your thoughts, identity, memories, or feelings because, as the brain remembers how you felt, it triggers your body to freeze.

#2: Difficulty Concentrating

Do you find yourself asking those around you to repeat what they tell you? Your poor concentration or short attention span may come from your childhood traumatic experiences. Here, the trauma disrupts attention processes leading to gaps in your memory, blacking out, or difficulty maintaining your train of thought.

In turn, you struggle to keep a job, study, have conversations, or stay in a long-term relationship. Attention impairment can be frustrating. And, those around you may see you as arrogant. Yet, it is your mind crying out to you to deal with the unhealed childhood trauma.

#3: Extreme Desire to Stay in Control

planning image

Are you the type of person who plans for everything? And, do you get frustrated when things don’t go the way you expect? This extreme need for control is an indication of your distrust for yourself and the world in general. It stems from a childhood traumatic experience that left you feeling helpless and vulnerable.

Hence, over the years, you opt to micro-manage every aspect of your life and worry about things beyond your control.

#4: Extreme Fear of Failure

Having a certain degree of fear is healthy. It triggers your survival instincts, pushing you to make choices that get you out of danger. Often, childhood trauma can make you have a negative belief in yourself and internalize your shortcomings.

At this point, you develop unhealthy fear that outweighs your motivation to succeed. You will shy away from opportunities and stop being creative. Plus, it leads to perfectionism and insecurities.

#5: Fear of Success

Are you always holding yourself back from getting something you want? Is it that you fear what will happen once you get it? This fear of success is the fear of losing what you anticipate getting, even before you get it.

If this habit resonates with you, it could be an indication of your repressed childhood trauma. Think of it as a tendency to unconsciously sabotage your chances of success, originating from when a parent put you up for adoption or when you lost a loved one at a young age.

#6: Struggling To Ask for Help

After undergoing any form of mistreatment or abuse, many people struggle to ask for help. These individuals are too afraid to reach out to someone else, hence, preferring to suffer in silence. The fear of rejection, being seen as weak, or denied by those around them makes it impossible for the wounded person to speak out.

#7: Anger and Self-Harm

Do you lash out at people? And, when dealing with an issue, do you prefer isolating yourself from the rest of your family? Unhealed childhood trauma can cause you to become emotional, volatile, and overly sensitive. Further, you may take out the anger on yourself by abusing food, drugs, and alcohol or having suicidal tendencies.

Introspective & Spiritual Practices for Healing from Childhood Trauma

Healing from Childhood Trauma Image

Identifying the above signs of childhood trauma is your first step towards getting the help you need to heal. Next, I share some practices you can pursue in your healing journey: –

#1: Acknowledge and recognize the trauma

Often, we tend to deny a traumatic experience, hoping it will disappear. Yet, it creates shadow emotions that disrupt your lives when we least expect it. Start your healing journey by accepting yourself as a former victim of childhood trauma. Acceptance is not about justifying the trauma. Instead, it is deciding that you want to deal with it.   

#2: Cry

If you are holding onto emotional pain and are struggling with anger or drug abuse, release these suppressed emotions through crying therapy. Emotional tears will soothe you and release feel-good chemicals that improve your moods instantly.

#3: Let go of your victim mentality

Here, you aim to reclaim control of your life by making choices based on who you are today, not your past pain.

#4: Ask for help

Here, you want to connect and share your experiences with other childhood trauma survivors. Build healthy relationships. Nurture healthy habits.

What bad habits do you have as your way to escape from your pain?

Start replacing them with good ones. Start by identifying the triggers. Keep yourself busy all the time. Also, decide on a substitute for the bad habit. Then, hold yourself accountable to a close friend or family member. Note that some habits like alcohol and drug abuse require professional intervention. For this, work with a therapist or your local support group to get the help you need.

#5: Give yourself time to heal

It takes time to let go and replace misconceptions, poor coping mechanisms, and shadow emotions from childhood. Journalize your healing journey and celebrate small wins.

Conclusion

Is childhood trauma holding you back from achieving your full potential? The out-of-control emotions, misconceptions about ourselves and those around us, or poor coping habits that leave us feeling helpless, ashamed, anxious, and depressed. If you recognize the tell-tale signs of childhood trauma in your life, it could be your inner child trying to tell you that all is not well. Then, make a conscious decision to seek help and start your healing journey.

Inner Child Healing Practice: 7 Questions to Ask Your Inner Child

Published

on

7 Questions to Ask Your Inner Child Image

Some kids go through a series of events that trigger heavy emotions that they can’t get their heads around. These traumatic events come as a shock, forcing a part of the child’s mind to lock and remain frozen in an immature state. Next, the child grows up acting immaturely or saying things that are not entirely correct. It is almost like another person is talking to them. If you are this grown-up child, you could be dealing with a wounded inner child.

Understanding the Inner Child

The Wounded Inner Child

Note that, we all have an inner child. You know those child-like aspects in our lives. However, it becomes a problem when this inner child makes you behave based on your childhood traumatic experiences. For example, you could be struggling with shame, anger, and fear of abandonment, depending on how your parents scolded you or how your peers bullied you. It is your wounded inner child developing coping mechanisms without you even knowing it.

How Do You Work with Your Inner Child?

Working with the inner child is about locating and healing this wounded child in us. Unlike other healing techniques, the inner child healing practice makes you look at yourself as a child. You take up a parent role and correct misconceptions and unresolved issues that interfere with your lifestyle decisions to date.

Moreover, kids learn by asking lots of questions. Likewise, our healing technique starts by asking the inner child a series of questions about our forgotten dreams, expectations, hopes, and fears. So what are the questions to ask your inner child?

The Dialogue: Re-parenting Yourself

reconnecting with your inner child image

Set aside some quiet time alone. It could be in your study room, besides a campfire in your backyard, or a picnic spot at the park. Set up your relaxing area, then question yourself and give honest answers to these questions: –

#1: What do you wish your parents knew about you?

Did you grow up having poor or no communication with your parents? Were they too strict? If so, what things about you would you wish you could tell them. It could be that you lie only to protect your mom from your abusive dad. And, when you go silent, you don’t mean to be rude. Whatever you hold back against your parents or superiors, now is the time to bring it forth and deal with it.

#2: What gets you excited and happy every morning?

Every child grows up with a passion for what they want to become. Yet, they face adults who discourage them. In turn, the kids end up pursuing careers to fit in and live an average lifestyle. Asking the inner child about their drive evokes those carefree happy feelings kids have.

#3: What would you do if you won a million-dollar jackpot today?

This question helps to bring back your childhood dreams and ambitions. By answering it, you question the things that restrict you from reaching your full potential right now. That way, you can differentiate between actual limits and your fears.

#4: If you were to advise your adult self, what would you tell him or her? What would you want this adult to remember about you?

This question addresses any self-esteem issues you have. It gets you to open up and be honest about how you view yourself vis-à-vis how you would wish those around you see you. The answers help you acknowledge your strengths and accept your flaws. Likewise, you will relate better with your loved ones.

#5: If you were to re-write your life story, how would it read? Who would you want to be the main characters?

If you love storytelling, here is a great chance to look at yourself as an outsider. Rewriting the story of your life takes stock of all your meaningful moments from childhood up to now. Hence, we remind ourselves that we are relevant to our local communities. 

Give this story a theme. Is this the theme you wanted from childhood? If not, divert this story to the person you want to be. Do this by making healthy lifestyle changes.

#6: If you were to relocate, where would you want to live?

Deciding about where you live is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. It reflects where you want to make an impact, start a family, establish a career, and grow old. Yet, many adults feel they are a victim of their bad choices. They feel stuck in jobs they hate, relationships they feel out of love, or communities with unrealistic expectations.

Exploring your relocation options helps you see that you can get out of a rat race or make drastic decisions to start your life afresh.

#7: Where do you see yourself 10 years ago?

Finally, permit yourself to go back in time. Think of a moment a decade ago or at a time just before a traumatic experience. For example, did you lose a loved one in the 9/11 tragedy? Go back to a month before that disaster. How were you?

What choices did you make now that you find hard to make today? If this traumatic experience never took place, how would you see yourself today? This final question assesses the impact of the traumatic events in our current life.

Importance of Inner Child Healing Practice

Questions to Ask Inner Child Image

These questions to ask your inner child helps us reconnect with that frozen, immature part of our brains. It takes us back to that traumatic childhood past, highlighting how it is affecting our adult lives. Next, we come up with remedies to recondition the mind to undo all those biased thoughts about ourselves or life as a whole.

More so, inner child healing practices open up a gateway to long-forgotten possibilities, helping us pick up from when we stopped dreaming or being ambitious.

Conclusion

Inner child healing practice is a technique that permits us to heal from the most difficult childhood scars. This healing journey to wholeness must be at a child-like level. It begins with a series of questions to our inner child to connect with it. Once awake, we can open up possibilities and embrace our talents and creativity that lay dormant all these years.

Soul Retrieval: Can You Reclaim Your Lost Soul?

Published

on

Soul Retrieval Image

Are you going through soul loss? That psyche fragmentation occurring after a traumatic experience or overwhelming shock? It is a temporary survival mechanism to help you get through the pain that comes with the trauma. So, do you do nothing about it and hope your soul will return soonest possible? Or, are there practices you can do for soul retrieval?

Well, one thing is sure. Soul loss makes you feel incomplete in all aspects of your life. This emptiness can trigger mental health problems, physical illness, and even death. Plan to take action to retrieve your lost self for better health.

Now, let’s explore how soul retrieval works:

Understanding How Soul Retrieval Works

Imagine yourself living in a big house with several rooms. Then, one day something tragic happens to you. You respond by locking all your memories, thoughts, and emotions associated with that day in one of the rooms. Yet, these thoughts are necessary for you to live a whole life.

Now, soul retrieval is about finding ways to locate this room, open the door, and retrieve this suppressed part of your soul. It entails bringing back those pieces of yourself that you may have lost over time due to difficulties like illness, loss of a loved one, abuse, accidents, or divorce.

This loss is often due to emotional trauma like bullying and severe punishment or neglect by parents. In turn, it requires hard work by the person going through the soul loss and the other person assisting in the retrieval.

Soul Retrieval Methods

Soul Searching Image

There are two main approaches to soul retrieval. These are Shamanic practices and psychotherapy. We take a deeper look at each below:

Shamanic Soul Retrieval Approach

The shamanic approach to soul retrieval views the cause of illness as power loss or spirit loss. As per the principle of conservation of energy, this lost power or spirit never disappears. Instead, it takes a different form and stays that way until the day we do something to trigger it back to its former state.

Hence, shamanic practices date back to ancient cultures.

It features spirit guides in communities conducting rituals and cleansing ceremonies as part of the healing process. Here, participants connect to the higher wisdom of their past. They go back in time as much as possible to discover their soul parts. Next, they examine which of these parts are ready to be restored. Then, with careful guidance, the participant reintegrates these soul parts into their lives.

Using Plant Medicine

Plant medicine is also one of the shamanic approaches to soul retrieval. It involves tapping into the therapeutic abilities of plants to help us reconnect with the lost soul parts. These plants feature in most shamanic healing rituals since the healer handpicks them depending on the healing intentions.

Most of the plants used for soul retrieval have visionary or psychedelic properties. They alter the participants’ perception of reality, creating the right circumstance to explore the limitless healing power of the mind. In the process, it reframes any shadow emotions and reconnects the lost soul parts.

Psychotherapy Approach to Soul Retrieval

Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalysis refers to therapeutic and theory-based techniques that address the unconscious mind to achieve healing. During soul retrieval, psychoanalysis techniques release our unconscious thoughts, memories, desires, and feelings.

Hence, the therapist guides participants in bringing those repressed parts of their minds into the conscious state. That way, the participant can deal with the repressed conflict that triggered soul loss in the first place.

Hypnotherapy

Gentle hypnosis and visualizations can get you into a relaxed state, making it easier for you to go back to that time and place where your soul fragment remained. At this point, this fragment can integrate back into the self.

Moreover, relaxation reinforces the sense of self. Plus, it helps you identify and let go of any dysfunctional beliefs arising from a traumatic experience. More so, the hypnotist relies on love, understanding, and forgiveness to guide you into restoring your original innocence.

Still, you can opt for self-hypnosis by using such techniques as mindfulness, anchoring, creative visualization, mental rehearsal, and cognitive behavioral therapy.  

Dream Analysis

Dreaming image

Did you know that studying your dream patterns can help you heal from soul loss? What you dream of today may relate to various periods in your earlier life. The dreams indicate the associations between who you are today and your fragmented soul parts.

More so, the dream patterns give suggestions on how best to do the soul reintegration. For example, if you dream of rescuing a child from harm, it could indicate a time when you were that young when your soul loss took place. And, if you have more than one lost soul fragment, this dream may recur, with children of varying ages, and in different circumstances.

Whatever the scenario, working with a skilled practitioner can help you use these patterns to attain soul retrieval.

Deep Guided Meditation

Deep guided meditation is a deep energy-based healing technique. It revolves around shifting our energies to a time and place when soul loss took place. Typical deep guided meditations include soothing audio with background sounds, a video with calming imagery, deep listening,  breathing exercises, upbeat music, gazing, yoga, and moments of reflection. 

These meditation techniques widen your imagination, make you more aware of your inner self, improve attention span and sleep patterns, reduce stress, and calm negative emotions.

The Bottom Line

Shamanic approaches are the pioneer techniques of soul retrieval. They treat physical illnesses by mending the soul. The healer corrects and redirects our energies to achieve balance and stability in our spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing. In contrast, the psychotherapy practices for soul retrieval rely on science and clinical medicine to explain and treat illness arising from spiritual matters. Hence, the shamanic techniques remain superior in dealing with soul loss.

When you go through a traumatic experience, a part of your soul may leave because it is too difficult to stay. This temporary soul loss is a natural impulse to help you cope with the pain. Yet, if it lingers on, soul loss can disrupt your life and manifest itself as a physical or mental illness. Soul retrieval through shamanic or psychotherapy approaches helps you reconnect with the lost soul parts and attain healing. They help us reclaim our wholeness for better living.
