Soul surgery is a tool applied to a shamanic journeying session. It is the process of understanding, befriending and re-integrating the outcast parts of ourselves, so we can discover our unique power and become energised and whole once more.
No one can take our power because it’s inherently ours. However, we may become disconnected, trapped or set adrift from it in a variety of ways. Common causes can be shock, illness, depression, trauma, abuse or bereavement. This can be known as soul loss.
Shamanic journeying is a process that takes you from one state of consciousness to another, using a drum to navigate.
There are two main types of soul surgery:
Soul retrieval is a journey to our inner world to help us locate, recover and reintegrate these lost parts of the soul.
A soul release is a journey to untangle and walk away from unhealthy patterns. Sometimes our energy becomes intertwined with partners, friends or career paths in a way that’s messy and detrimental to all.
