This is the second part of a look at healing on the quantum level.
As I mentioned in the last article, because we are multi-dimensional beings, in our natural energetic state we are not bound by the constraints of time or space. Another word we use for this state of infinite being-ness is soul. Since it is a concept we cannot truly know in our current state of third dimensional physicality, I think of it as that life-spark of consciousness that comes into the body when we are born, and leaves when the body dies. As this spark of infinite being, we experience a myriad of lifetimes on this planet and others in the multiverse.
In our incarnations we interact with other infinite souls who are having their own experiences, and our interactions cause trauma and create karma. If we have been incarnating on earth and in its timelines, then we have had traumas. It seems to be just how the soul is wired in with the human energetic body. And because we incarnate with little or no memory of our true nature, we don’t know that we are infinite or why we are participating in karma and experiencing trauma.
When we experience a trauma, sometimes it can cause a fracture of our soul, causing a loss of some of our infinite essence. The soul does not want to be in the physical body when the trauma is happening, so it just steps out for the duration. This can occur anytime there is trauma; either physical accident or abuse, deep grief, a mental breakdown, addiction. Some shamans also view the soul loss as a binding up, that it doesn’t actually go away, but it is hidden so we do not have access to our spiritual wholeness.
Soul loss doesn’t happen with every trauma luckily. Even when it does happen, most times the essence finds its way back on its own after the trauma. But when it doesn’t, we experience the soul loss in a variety of ways. We may literally feel like a part of us is missing, or we may have a physical or mental illness that does not respond to any treatments. Reiki can be one method to affect healing of past traumas, and shamanic work is very well suited to facilitate soul retrievals and past life healing. Often long-standing health issues can be resolved with this kind of healing, and not just on the physical level, but on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels as well.
In a soul retrieval, a trained shamanic practitioner is led by helping spirits to where the soul essence is hidden. Many times the soul part stays at the same age as when it left, often it is being taken care of by a helping spirit. Sometimes the soul part is being held by a spirit that is not helpful, and in those cases the practitioner has to negotiate the release. The soul part is then returned home to its current incarnation, bringing with it any spirit allies it has and the gift of its essence which is healing in some way. The practitioner will ask their own healer ally to help integrate the energy of the soul part back into the energy body, and will engage the client’s Higher Self and spirit helpers to do the same.
We can do some of this healing ourselves, by using our tools like shamanic journey, Reiki, meditation, prayer and other modalities that put us in conscious contact with our team of helping spirits and guides and our Higher self. We can ask them to find and call back any of our soul parts that can come home now, and ask them to show us any karmic or past life issues that can now be resolved. We do what we can with our team on our own, then we can ask other practitioners trained in soul retrieval to help us with any other issues we can’t resolve. Sometimes it takes an objective view outside ourselves and someone with years of experience to find what is hidden from our sight.
Once we welcome our soul parts back home, we ask them what they need to fully integrate back into our lives. So much may have happened while they were gone! And then we have to do inner work to complete our unification. This can include celebration, journaling, journeying, contemplation, dream-work, even spiritual and emotional work with a professional counselor.
Soul loss may happen in other lifetimes which affects our health and well-being in our current lives. This is a complex issue and can also be referred to as past-life healing. There is also karmic healing that can happen at a soul level. We are seeing a lot of this now as collective humanity is steering toward a spiritual evolution and our ascension process. We are being called to heal very deep and old wounds, clear karma, and renegotiate contracts made at a soul level which do not support our highest good and evolution.
It is no random chance that we are here at this crucial juncture in human history and planetary shift. Every one of us has the potential to re-write and re-right our timelines by healing at the quantum level of the soul.
