Shamanic work is centered on WHOLENESS: removing what doesn’t belong, and reclaiming that which does. Shamanic healing is focused on wholeness to the extent that my Spirits often use that word as the healing message, telling me how to provide “wholing.” While spellcheck hates the word, for me, in this modern western culture, I find it far clearer to use and understand than the enigmatic word “healing.”
Bodies are wonderful vehicles designed to experience this reality, but they are also limited: they sometimes suffer mechanical problems. Our energy body is the template that forms our physical body – when it is distorted by losses and intrusions, or forced to share space with other energies, it causes distortions in the template and health problems in the physical body. Soul retrieval and power animal retrieval are well-known examples of restoring or gathering energy to increase power. Removal of thought forms, curses, extractions, and compassionate depossession are common methods of eliminating energy losses. The correction is to remove that which doesn’t belong, and bring back that which belongs but has been lost.
In other cases, energy is dissipated during fits of anger and/or emotional upheaval, or simply attached to too many memories of triggering events. Energy attached to a memory can be reclaimed through recapitulation; energy thrown away in a fit of anger is simply lost.
Occasionally, energy is stolen; more often, energy is simply leaked through various energy gates (chakras) and through rips and tears in the energy body. Plugging energy leaks can be a powerful a way of restoring energy, and should be a more commonly used tool in the shamans bag of wholing tricks.
Always, to insure maximum health and strength – as well as that thing shamanic workers call power – bring the energy body into WHOLENESS!
