Fear, fright, and trauma create patterns that stop us in our tracks, distort our sense of self, and cause imbalances and energy leaks leading ultimately to physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual illness. In the shamanic world this is known as Soul Loss. In the western medical world the symptoms of Soul Loss are often diagnosed as PTSD, depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, any number of emotional ailments, and shock at first glance. Other symptoms include exhaustion, not feeling like oneself, lacking harmony, inability to feel happy or present to one’s life, and often lacking purpose or direction. Typically when someone has Soul Loss it is difficult to maintain a job, relationship, health, finances, or any sense of well-being and harmony in their life. Even when high-functioning there is a sense something isn’t right in one’s life.
In tribal cultures Soul Loss is known as an adaptive mechanism meant only to be temporary. When there is a dangerous situation or accident, the soul pulls out of the physical body so as to escape the suffering from the trauma. To bring the soul back to their body and present time the tribal members give immediate loving attention, physical and emotional comfort, unconditional love, and all required to tend to that person’s needs. As the soul feels safe and loved they are able to come completely back to their body. Safety and love creates the frequency necessary for the healing and restoration.
When we don’t get this safe and loving energy for restoration we carry our trauma day to day. The trauma and soul loss can be from this life’s experiences, past life experiences, or ancestral trauma passed on from family member to family member, generation to generation.
You may or may not have any idea of having experienced a life trauma or fright. Yet you may see patterns in your family that reflect wounding, or you may not. I can assure you there is generational trauma whether you are aware of it or not. If you feel something is off or out of balance in your life there is a good chance some aspect of your soul self is displaced and wants to come home in safe and healthy ways.
