This work can go to the many energy forms contained in the cosmos within and the external cosmos. For example a shaman can use a particular healing extraction technique to restore better physical health to a client by removal or release of a wrongful intrusion that may be manifesting in grief and or depression in a client’s life. Frequently the source of this intrusion may be in spirit but manifesting in the client’s body.
Shamans use many different extraction techniques such as doing the work through embodiment of animals, guides, and or allies. They can also embody the spirit of dance to work with individuals, their families and the community.
Causes of intrusions can also come from the many different kinds of soul loss. So, extraction work and soul retrieval work can go hand in hand. Intrusions can also come from soul theft by sorcerers and sorcery. Thinking intentional negative or bad thought towards another person may also cause an intrusion. While doing shamanic healing extraction work; purity of heart and purity of intention are the shaman’s and the client’s protection.
The extraction of spiritual intrusions is practiced world wide in shamanism. This practice can vary from the drawing out of subtle reality spirits to the actual removal of very real spirits to the actual “psychic surgery”. Also shamans can do healing extractions by using various sucking techniques. The tools for sucking vary between shamanic traditions and cultures.
Extreme care is taken when using these extraction tools and techniques. There are very specific methods, procedures, and dispersal techniques to be followed implicitly when matter is extracted.
What is done in non-ordinary reality must be honored and followed through to completion here in the real world. Especially what was done and negotiated with by Spirit. Such techniques can only be learned first hand from an experienced shaman teacher. A healing is not necessarily a cure. A healing can be a challenge that lights our fires. It can lift repression and denials not bliss.
Science and technology, traditional medicine, and psychotherapy cannot cure all ills.
They tend to treat only the symptoms of a disease, rarely its’ cause. Shamanism focuses on discovery o the source and treatment of the illness, or disease.
