In shamanic belief a soul retrieval is needed when trauma occurs in our life. Often a part of our soul may leave in order to survive the trauma of what has occurred. Signs of soul loss include chronic illnesses, feeling fragmented, depression, and fatigue. In soul retrieval, the shamanic practitioner journeys to find the missing soul parts and bring them back, creating a sense of wholeness. This returns power to you that has been lost perhaps since you were a child.
