The traumas we experience take a toll on us, but the effects of trauma vary from individual to individual. In our current society, we often use psychological methods to deal with most traumas and feelings of incompleteness. Whether it’s someone who has been in an accident, lost a loved one, been in an abusive relationship, faced memory gaps of a part of their lives, or any one of a thousand other things, we often dissociate a part of ourselves, most often as a mechanism of protection. If you’ve ever felt incomplete, it’s because your intuitive self knows that a part of you is missing.
Soul recovery is about journeying into other forms of reality to return the broken pieces and reintegrate them into ourselves. It’s a shamanistic tool because, generally, what sets the shaman apart from other healers is the journeying he/she does. Healing shamanistic journeys have been conducted in most cultures and all parts of the world, from Siberia to South America and North America to Australia.
Soul recovery is a means of finding and reintegrating those dissociated pieces. There are many other forms of reality to find the missing pieces and various methods for their recovery. Although someone else finds your parts for you, it doesn’t mean you have no responsibility. Once the pieces are found, it is up to the person who has suffered the trauma to keep the reintegration process going and ensure those parts stay integrated.
You may wonder how you know if you’ve suffered soul loss and what the steps are for a soul retrieval journey. Some of the signs that may point to soul loss are depression, the inability to ground oneself, feelings of detachment, chronic illness, addictions, inability to let go of certain things in your life, a sense of emptiness, etc.
When you have found a shamanistic facilitator you want to work with, he/she undertakes a journey, based on a specific ceremony, on your behalf to other worlds or dimensions where these pieces are. With the help of a guide, the shaman can bring back a certain number of pieces. For the next month, it is up to you to communicate with these pieces, listen to what they have to say, and help them reintegrate into who you are. After a few months, you may want the shaman to undertake a second journey to see if more pieces are ready to return. The more traumatized pieces often do not return on the first journey. It’s as if it’s understood that the reintegration of all the pieces takes time and can require a slow adjustment period, and so the pieces come back in an order from least traumatized to most traumatized.
The purpose of the journey is to find and help heal these fragmented pieces of your soul. The shaman will tell you about the journey, explaining the pieces, the circumstances, and what was required. In some instances, you will know exactly what he/she’s talking about, and in some cases, you will have to think about what the events may represent. They may be transparent as glass, or they may be couched in allegory.
Recognizing where and how the fragmentation took place can accelerate the reintegration process. You may be in a much different place now from when the piece dissociated, and the integration can be smooth and effortless. Each piece and each person is different. During reintegration, you listen and converse with the returned pieces and continue to accelerate your healing. You open yourself up more to the various means of communicating with your higher self and get more significant insights into your true self and soul.

SPIRITUAL FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT: Defending Your Life Starring Albert Brooks and Meryl Streep
Yuppie Daniel Miller is killed in a car accident and goes to Judgment City, a waiting room for the afterlife. During the day, he must prove in a courtroom-style process that he successfully overcame his fears (a challenging task, given the miserable life we are shown); at night, he falls in love with Julia, the only other young person in town. Nights are a time of hedonistic pleasure since you can (for instance) eat all you want without getting fat. Written by Jon Reeves (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All of your life is on videotape — or perhaps laser disk — to make it easier on your prosecutor and defense attorney at Judgment City to randomly access a few episodes to show whether you made the most of the life you just completed. If you didn’t make the most of that life, you would be sent back to try again and again until you got it right. And the court must be taking an advance peek at that life tape. Posh accommodations go to those who look like they will merit moving up to citizens of the universe — like Julia, who falls for Daniel, whose quarters have no ambiance.

To escape the edict of Egypt’s Pharaoh, Rameses I, condemning all first-born Hebrew males, the infant Moses is set adrift on the Nile in a reed basket. Saved by the pharaoh’s daughter Bithiah, he is adopted by her and brought up in the court of her brother, Pharaoh Seti. Moses gains Seti’s favor, the love of the throne princess Nefertiri, and the hatred of Seti’s son, Rameses. When his Hebrew heritage is revealed, Moses is cast out of Egypt, and makes his way across the desert, where he marries, has a son, and is commanded by God to return to Egypt to free the Hebrews from slavery. In Egypt, Moses’s fiercest enemy is not Rameses but someone near him who can ‘harden his heart. Written by Ron Kerrigan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Moses leads the slaves from the tyranny of the Egyptian pharaoh and into the desert, where he is later given the law of God. Once the pharaoh’s chief architect, Moses receives the attention of the Queen until he rebels and is cast into exile. Written by Keith Loh (email@example.com)

SPIRITUAL FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT: Pay It Forward, Starring Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt, and Haley Joel Osment
Imagine you’re despairing over a major significant problem in your life, and someone comes along and solves it for you unconditionally. All you have to do is “pay it forward,” i.e., do a similarly big favor to three others. Would you do it?
That’s the premise behind Pay it Forward, an overly sentimental film with some provocative ideas. The concept originates when Eugene “be careful with that axe” Simonet (Kevin Spacey) challenges his Seventh-grade class to come up with an assignment to change the world. Trevor (Haley Joel Osment) comes up with the pay-it-forward concept. First, he decides to help a homeless heroin addict get back on his feet, then help Eugene and his mother (Helen Hunt) get together (which really makes for two favors), and then help his friend whose bullies are pushing him around the school. This “movement” spreads relatively unnoticed until a reporter in Los Angeles who loses his car is handed a brand new Jaguar and tracks down the source of this favor chain.
With a stellar cast consisting of Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt, and Haley “I see dead people” Osment, the movie works pretty well under Mimi Leder’s direction. The southern California/Nevada cinematography is done well. The dialogue is the film’s weakest aspect and is a bit hackneyed at times. More than the primary plot itself, the various underlying subtexts involving domestic abuse and alcoholism are interesting.
Pay-it-forward is how most of human society works to the extent it does (some have even been institutionalized in the form of religion and government). The problem is that the notion is not idealistic enough. Performing three big favors just does not cut it. Not only does there need to be a significantly larger amount of favors done throughout one’s life, but the more important thing is that people don’t do harmful things to others to an equally large degree. Doing three big favors is pointless if you’ve done more harm than any favor can repay. A better (and much more romantic) concept would be to live life without harming others (which also would not be adequate but would be much more effective than a three-favor scheme).
Pay it Forward really illustrates that it is harmful to oneself and others to be apathetic towards other people’s problems. However, one must choose their battles wisely to maximize the balance of doing good to others and not doing harm. This doesn’t mean inaction, as much as realizing that specific solutions don’t work. For example, using violence as a solution never works since violence always begets violence (“what’s good for the goose is good for the gander”). On that note, Pay it Forward also throws in a message about school violence.
