A very common type of energetic illness and complain brought for Shamanic practitioners to work on is the removal of intrusive energies. If for whatever reason one has a hole in his/her energy field, negative energies can come and stay in that space. If there for a long time, those energies can manifest themselves as negative thoughts, inappropriate behaviour towards others, physical illnesses or pain and sometimes even suicidal thoughts. Those energies sometimes can also be coming from other people e.g. envy, bad thoughts or anger directed towards one.
During an extraction session, we identify the intrusion and remove it from the person's energetic field.

Shamanic Healing addresses the psychic and spiritual aspects of illnesses where illness is seeing as energy in an inappropriate place or form. Healing is when something in a person changes, shifts, expands or is transformed for better. It can take place in the emotional, the mental, the physical or the spiritual level. Shamanic work is concerned with healing the spirit at a soul level. When a healing takes place at a spirit or soul level very often it has an effect in all other levels.
Healing cannot take place if the person is in a des-empowered place. First thing to do is to empower the person and we do that by calling the person's inner helpers and connect the person with them. The inner helpers provide power, energy and support. ( Source: The Edinburgh Shamanic Centre )
When we suffer a trauma, be it small or major, a part of our soul, a part of our essence leaves our body and that is our way to cope or survive. Part of being human is having this adaptation mechanism for our survival. That part of us, our essence or life force, has the ability to live in other dimensions because we are, by nature, multidimensional beings.
When soul lost occurs, we are left with a feeling that something is missing but we are not quite sure what that is. Sometimes it is a sense of not being here, not being present, sometimes it is a sense of confusion, not being able to have clarity or direction, sometimes it is being stuck in enacting suffering and pain. Childhood trauma is also a very common reason for needing a soul retrieval.
The inner helpers will tell us what parts need to come back. When a healing takes place at a soul level, when the re-union takes place, very often, it has an effect in all other levels. Soul retrieval, although very simple, is one of the most powerful shamanic healing one can have.
