Shamanic Practitioners believe that everyone has power animals – animal spirits which reside with each individual adding to their power and protecting them from illness, acting similarly to a guardian angel. Each power animal that you have increases your power so that illnesses or negative energy cannot enter your body.
A spirit animal retrieval is a staple of shamanic practice. If a person reaches out in request to obtain their spirit animal, the shaman works on their behalf by journeying, a specific type of shamanic meditation, in which the animal for the person on behalf of whom the shaman is working must present himself to the shaman in a very specific way. Once the power animal has been determined, it is then brought back to the waiting person, and the information on this animal is then given them.
POWER ANIMAL RETRIEVALS CAN BE AN IMPORTANT AND HIGHLY EFFECTIVE HEALING CEREMONY. POWER ANIMALS DO JUST THAT, THEY BRING US POWER.
When someone has had a loss of power due to a divorce, surgery, the loss of a job, or any other modern-day event, then it may be helpful for him or her to be the beneficiary of a power animal retrieval.
We all have multiple Power Animals. A Power Animals is the spirit of an animal who lived on the earth plane at one time and is now in spirit form. They are animal angels, so to speak. They have tremendous power and have been, for 40,000 years or more, the allies of the Shamanic Practitioner and others who lived in indigenous cultures throughout the world.
