High Level Integration
Each of us at a high level may well be immortal, inviolable, and unfragmentable. At such a level one would be already liberated, which has nothing at all to do with the need to have clearing sessions at the human level. Soul retrieval as discussed here does not usually even concern a very high level of consciousness. It concerns your capacity to feel and create as a human being; only applying to those levels of consciousness which respond to your present life name. Above soul retrieval is the sacred and secret subject of Essence Retrieval, which is a special subject of its own as it is important not to bring back old patterns and pictures from past lives.
The most important basic in spiritual development is wholeness at "lower" or human levels. Without that wholeness, there is a constant void waiting to be filled by something, so no spiritual work at "higher" levels will shine through cleanly. People won't see where you're at. There is so much more warmth in the face and sparkle in the eyes of a person who has most of their soul present.
Do we need to define the term "soul"? I use the term "soul" because it tends to defy technical definition, and therefore permits the client to reach from the term in a poetic manner to whatever sense of creative or emotive missingness that they may have, and look at inviting that void to be filled by Self. The definition of "soul" I use to satisfy my analytical mind's need to classify everything is this: "The feeling capacity of the person up to as high a level of consciousness as relates to the client's present life name." If your name is "Millicent", soul would be the feeling component of "Millicent", not you as an immortal.
Some soul parts are electrical energies that belong specifically to the body and could be called "somatic soul", and some are energies that relate to the slower or more material frequencies of the being. It is not often necessary to specify what sort of soul one is dealing with. The need of the analytical mind to carefully classify and explain everything according to its own limited rules may well be an important causative factor in modern societies being so soulless. It is so easy to come up with a set of "whiz bang" sounding definitions that appeal to the ego that it is extremely easy to create an ego-boosting cult.
Such techniques are often valuable, but the results available are tightly limited by the jargon or definitions of the cult, as the client is not free to focus outside of the definitions. Where definitions are vital is where charge cannot be released due to concepts being overlaid on each other. Holographic Timeline Clearing is usually vital to release traumatic charge so the body's electrical field can accept the soul part. This technique allows the incident to be inspected one aspect at a time, when actually an incident is a hologram that ideally should be understood as a whole. It isn't practical to expect a client to do this all at once, so defining the incident into parts is often-times a necessary precursor to understanding the whole.
Soul work, being at a slower frequency of vibration than the immortal aspects of the being, hasn't been emphasized in most spiritual practices. The slower frequencies are what makes you feel warm with someone, or feel like purring like a cat, the light sparkle in the eyes, the feeling that someone is "there" for you.
This dichotomy between levels is in the process of dissolving, and there is a new phase of human evolution in process, in which it will become usual to retain immortal consciousness simultaneously with human feelings and the intellectual thought processes that amuse the mind. You don't need to shift down in frequency to do soul work, you just include lower harmonics of the client's "spiritual signature", that essence that identifies them as unique, and aim for an integration of "levels" such that the concept of levels melts. A whole person can be thought of as a hologram in the sense that each part contains the whole. Each cell, both physical and spiritual contains the codes that produce the whole.
Stable Soul retrieval often requires some form of another shamanic practice called "Power Animal Retrieval" The human body is weak if it is not in resonance with the other life-forms on the planet. If "horse" were the form you needed to perform your current chosen activity, you would not tune in with "a horse" but "Horse", the essence of that class of animals. You can reach out to a class of animals, and allow your body to resonate in harmony with it. Chronic disease is commonly lack of this vital resonance. Honoring these essences in little ways, like enjoying animal dances can dramatically aid the health of the human body.
When doing a soul retrieval for a special occasion such as somebody's birthday, I am inclined to use full shamanic ceremony. I have two drummers drumming away, and I journey into non-ordinary reality (which I am beginning to think of as the Real World). Done as Soul Retrieval Counselling, the aim is to achieve maximum client participation, guiding them gently to find their own soul parts, and inspect the trauma that caused the soul part to leave. The latter reduces the duration of each emotional shift that inevitably occur during the few weeks integration period. There probably isn't nor need to be a method of waking up decades of suppressed emotions without a number of ups and downs, a little joy here, and a little hysterical crying there. If the incident hasn't been relieved first, the memories will return with the soul part, and the integration will occur, but be rougher than necessary.
Incident Clearing as has commonly been practiced has cleared the pictures of the incidents, but left many uninspected feelings. This is changing rapidly as clearing practitioners who have their own soul retrieved can feel it quite plainly when the feeling part of an incident is still there. Many may be able to integrate soul retrieval without often asking different questions than before; it will become natural to ask counseling questions with feeling instead of power. The days of "I can't see this incident, so it has been cleared" will hopefully be soon over. There is no value whatsoever in just clearing a picture, as the picture is the usual method of filing an incident, which allows one to trace down the encysted feeling.
The cause of not remembering incidents is soul loss. The soul part has left with the memory. One advantage of a shamanic soul retrieval is that the person is present with their memories so that clearing can be possible. You can't get dogmatic about sequence on this. If there is not enough person present to make good fast gains, invite them to be present first, then relieve the trauma. Life repair has almost never produced the result that the person feels that their life has been repaired, as the childhood soul has usually left with the childhood memories, so they never can get cleared. Then the client and clearing practitioner both look to "higher levels" for the cause of case instability. This can get never-ending and confusing, as the client can only rest in a level of consciousness at which they are already clear, but meanwhile, back on Earth, nothing has been handled.
The way I have developed Soul Retrieval Counselling is artistically a dance between clearing, and inviting Presence. Bring back the child soul, then clear the childhood memories. Alternatively, clear the traumatic incidents so they are not a negative resonance that prevents the soul part from being willing or able to return. Ideally you would weave an artistic balance between erasing the pictures, experiencing the feelings, and inviting Presence.
One exciting aspect of Soul Retrieval Counseling could be summed up as this phrase: "Real men cry at the movies." You will commonly find clients who have had extensive clearing from a mental viewpoint, and yet one extremely gentle question asked with feeling will open all the feeling that could be accessed with "technoclearing", and all their levels, certificates and status fall in the dust. It takes real courage for a client to drop the "I am God" game, and start afresh at a genuine beginning. Once you finally get used to living in the present with your feelings, child and adult, it's kind of nice being alive.
The real power of traumatic incident clearing done right is not that a memory is erased, it is not that charge is gone from the being. While truth concerning incidents is clarified, it in fact it matters little whether the incident run is present life, past life, or imaginary. What matters is entirely that what is run parallels a "glitch" or solidity in the body's electrical field to the degree that the field is simultaneously healed. That alone allows other people to see you as you are, and your soul to resonate with your body and shine through, and the body's energy field to act as a resonating device to focus the being cleanly into this reality. Then you can operate in the Real World, instead of merely in Consensus Reality. The Real World is hardly seen, and it is right here.
