What is it and why is this important to me?
In my studies of human nature and where exactly the physical body stops and the Spirit starts (or the other way around), and also from my experience working with people for over 20 years and seeing the "dis-ease" and fragmentation that happens with our physical bodies, down to a cellular level, I started to seek a deeper understanding into this phenomenon and practice.
It was interesting to learn there are many people who practice what is called "Soul Retrieval" ... the fragmentation of the energy body, the soul, as we move through this 3D plane. Soul retrieval is an exercise, with many techniques to accomplish this, where people work with the higher energies to retrieve pieces of their soul that have been "broken away" due to trauma, stress, unawareness, carelessness (many reasons) so that they can bring themselves back to a sense of Oneness.
I thought to myself - SIGN ME UP!
As stated earlier, there are many techniques to practice Soul Retrieval. Some people create very sacred spaces to do this - Shamans are particular when it comes to setting the stage for this practice ... calling in ancestors for assistance, totem animals and adding sacred items to the practice.
Others like to go out in nature, as it's easier to ground themselves for it and they can also connect with the earth before and after their practice.
Others still, have dietary preparations before they enter their practice of Soul Retrieval, eg. refrain from processed food, no alcohol or other mind altering substances that can inhibit the process.
For myself - I simply found a comfortable space to be in my home, put some music on that induces a meditative state for me (as I connect best this way, through music) and just laid back, closed my eyes, set my intention of what I wanted to do and waited ... observed ...
I don't know how much time went by before I saw myself lying there, my auric body starting to glow a bit more and growing around me. I thought, "this is kinda cool". I could feel that energy field filling up the space around me as I breathed - always aware of my breath. I noticed with each breath, the field grew a little more and became more clear and bright.
I "felt" ready for the Soul Retrieval. I wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to do this, so I relaxed my mind and allowed my higher energies to come into play to assist in obtaining my goal. No sooner did I do that, I started to see little sparks of light coming toward me, penetrating my energy field and disappearing once they entered my energy "bubble", as it felt like a bubble around me. This went on for a time. While I relaxed and allowed these sparks of light to join me, they started to stream toward me, the sparks turned into streams of light, some thicker than others, some very thin.
It was at this point, that certain people in my life became apparent to me. I could see them and sometimes there was an occurrence attached to it. This was pretty amazing to me as I realized the energy coming back to me was energy that I expended to that person, in that particular situation, at that particular time, and here it was now ... coming back to me, but purified. It seemed as if the outer ridge of my auric field was a protective layer between the energy and how it came back to me. It acted as my guard. I also took note of HOW GOOD it felt for these streams of light to penetrate my field and join me in, well ... ONENESS. That's the best way I can describe it, as the streams all felt familiar to me and they felt like they belonged to me.
There came a point where the streams started to slow down, trickling in, and I just knew my session, my first session, with Soul Retrieval was coming to an end. It's almost like I felt full and I didn't need or want anymore. Such an interesting experience. The only other place I've noticed this is when I've run energy with animals or children. They somehow know when they've received enough and will simply get up and walk away. Done. Full. This is what it felt like.
At this point, I showed my gratitude for my guides and helpers who joined me for the healing session and changed my breath to slowly come out of my meditative state. I allowed myself to just lay comfortably and assimilate what I just experienced. It was pretty amazing!
I'm looking forward to expanding this practice more. Perhaps I'll go out in nature next time to see what that feels like. Perhaps I'll bring a few of my own sacred items that I like to have with me sometimes when I do Spiritual work.
If any of you who are reading this has ever done a Soul Retrieval exercise, I'd love to hear about it. Feel free to share your experience in the comments below, (you can't see the box, just click below this blog post and it should show up).
My hope is my share here inspires you to explore your own retrieval, however you'd like to go about it.
Peace and Light!
