Everyone has helping spirits and guides. One form of guide is a person’s Power Animal, which upon it’s return to our consciousness, also returns a part of our personal inner power. Our Power Animal is our main guide and spiritual ally and often if we are not connected to our animal guide we can suffer from a loss of energy, a weakened immune system, a sense of loneliness, and a lack of personal power.
In ancient tribal societies children from a very young age would have an understanding of their guides and animals and this greatly served to empower them and help them to feel safe and protected in difficult times. In our modern societies we are often lacking any support outside of ourselves as we all reside in our own worlds, which can easily become a lonely place.
When we begin to work with our power animals who are eager to be with us and helpful to us, a great healing and empowerment occurs. The process of Power Animal Retrieval is a shamanic technique where I work with my own animal guide to seek out and bring back the power animal on behalf of my client. The process does not end there though. Once their animal have been retrieved a ceremony occurs that brings the energy of the animal to the person and they are reunited. As a part of this process it is also important that the client knows how to connect with their power animal, and so learning how to connect through shamanic journey is also taught.
