Choosing a Shaman or Shamanic practitioner is like choosing a doctor, dentist, acupuncturist, or massage therapist. Not every practitioner will be the right fit for you. Remember to ask all the practical questions, like those listed below, even when the practitioner is a referral. Most importantly, always listen to your heart and trust your intuition to know if the practitioner is the one to assist on your journey.
The practitioner performing soul recovery is a tool of Spirit. Spirit works through a facilitator like a conduit or a translator. We often refer to the Shaman as a bird dog going out to fetch the soul pieces to be returned.
Soul Recovery and Extraction (SR/E) should not be done without permission of the client either orally or by their chief Spirit Guide. [See exceptions in FAQs] To do a journey without permission is disempowering to the person and violates their free will.
