Is Your Soul All Here?
Do you have a sense that a part of you is missing, buried or just out of reach? Perhaps you feel stuck at a certain age and although your chronological age is 42 you often find yourself responding from the needs of a 12 year old. Are you caught in a reoccurring pattern of violence and abuse despite your best efforts to end it? If you have gone through a harrowing situation that your psyche cannot process, a part of you may very well be missing! These are all signs of soul loss.
Soul loss happens when something occurs that is scary and too unbearable for a being to witness or go through. It can happen at any age but often it occurs in childhood before we have developed the necessary skills for surviving on our own. It happens most during violent situations, accidents and often after a period of chronic abuse. A part of us just gets up and leaves before the trauma damages it. It survives, untouched, from then on as a bundle of consciousness in shadow. The part that remains goes through the trauma becoming imprinted, wounded and derailed from our original destiny.
In the ancient shamanic traditions returning a soul piece requires a journey into the belly of Mother Earth where this shadow part of ourselves is being cared for. She holds our disowned pieces until we are ready to reclaim them. These pieces are filled with the joy, creativity, wonder and destinies we lost when that part of us seemed to die. The good news is it did not die at all, it just chose to preserve itself by hiding.
The part of us that went through the harrowing experience usually decides that the world is an unsafe place and designs strategies for navigating form that day forward. If we had a male sexually abuse us when we were young, for example, we may have decided all men are unsafe and need to be placated if we want any peace. This wounded part may develop boundary issues, becoming manipulative or promiscuous as a way of coping. Alternatively, someone who went through a violent war may adapt an underlying belief that the enemy is coming, that there is a bomb behind every corner and with no safe to hide they may turn to drugs to dampen their anxiety. Another person, abandoned by loved ones at an early age, may believe they are undesirable, unsupported, and therefore must do everything themselves. Hello driven workaholic!
It is no surprise that a soul piece will not come home to a person whose coping mechanisms overburden them or put them in danger. Someone with a lack of clear boundaries or substance abuse issues is not a safe home for an innocent soul piece. We must therefore do the healing work driving the dysfunctional beliefs and behavior before we can expect that part of us to stay. When the person clears their energy field of the imprints locking these wounds into their everyday reality, and addresses the resulting destructive behavior, the soul piece comes back home willingly.
Reuniting a soul piece with its original Lightbody gives us a profound sense of wholeness and completion. There is no greater gift we can give ourselves than to fill that hole inside us with what has been missing. It puts us back on track with our original destinies and in touch with the essence of our true self. If it feels like a part of you is missing, it most probably is. Even “normal” people have lost several soul pieces. To restore your soul, see a professional shaman today!
