Soul Retrieval Can Heal Addiction, Trauma & Mental Illness – Here’s how …
By Christopher Hope
The world is heavily struggling with the modern plague. The plague of the 21st century is certainly the illness of addiction. Addiction, today, appears in so many forms that some of us are even completely unconscious about their struggle with addiction.
Living on the edge is not easy, living in ignorance and vain is even harder. However, we are all masters of our own decision, despite everyone and everything. We are opposed to pain and suffering, but, often, we cause suffering to ourselves, consciously or not.
The struggle with addictions could cause people to lose their souls. The ‘soul-loss’ results in depression, new addictions, chronic sikcnesses, diseases, social disorders and many other form of manifestation. It literally means to lose your soul, to become nobody during your battles with the addiction epidemic.
This article is useful because so many young people are losing the battle. Now, we will share the causes of soul loss. In shamanism Soul Loss describes the fragmentation of the soul. And interestingly, Soul Loss shares similarities with what contemporary psychology calls “dissociation”: the splitting of the psyche in response to traumatic, shocking or difficult experiences. This is often the cause of many Core Wounds that affect us later as adults. These are the examples that describe soul loss:
Any form of abuse, e.g., sexual, emotional, physical or mental.
An event of prolonged grief, pain and fear that made you feel helpless or impotent.
Deep-seated addictions, e.g., substance dependency.
A near-death or out-of-body experience.
Being forced to act against your morals.
An experience of intense rejection or abandonment.
Witnessing the unexpected death of someone.
A sudden and shocking accident.
Entering a relationship without strong boundaries of Self (resulting in an unhealthy relationship and losing your power).
As we already said, soul loss manifests in unpleasant forms and, if you feel like you ‘lost your soul’, you may become anxious and even have physical issues. Your body and soul are closely connected. This further explains how important it is to take these things seriously. When both the physical, mental and spiritual parts of your existence are hurt, you will have huge issues to re-define yourself and find the purpose of the existence. However, that’s the solution!
Soul Retrieval is a process of acknowledging yourself and re-defining your existence. First of all, there is no rule- the only rule is- try to find out who you really are. Believe it or not, soul loss could be a true blessing!
Sometimes, you need to hit the heavy rock bottom to reach the stars. Maybe you’ve been lost for too long, so you’ve been looking for a proper answer and way out of your suffering from your addictions. However, you will fall deep enough to see even the darkest parts of your soul.
Finding the truths about yourself will help you to develop and reshape your personality, trying to become the best version of yourself. Meditation and other spiritual techniques will help you achieve what you really want. Anyway, the first step is abstention and isolation. You need to cut all of the ties with your past and focus on building a prosperous future.
