From p.200: "It is the role of the shaman to identify the spiritual nature of the illness and its location in the body. Once this is known, the shaman removes the illness by "sucking" it out of the body. This is called a shamanic extraction."
J'ai également apprécié le fait qu'elle partage et illustre ses propos de multiples exemples concrets. Cela se lit facilement et rapidement ... quelques heures.
C'est mon premier livre sur ce sujet et je suis restée sur ma faim, mais je ne regrette pas cet achat. Je le conseille à tous les curieux qui souhaitent en savoir plus sur cette pratique chamanique.

This book is a God send to anyone who has been struggling with depression. self esteem issues, or a feeling of loss or incompleteness in their life. It gives insight as to how this method of healing works so quickly and completely where years of counseling may not seem to be effective and why. I believe all readers will be able to benefit from the information in this book and that information will change their lives; especially if they continue on this journey to self discovery. If you are tired of conventional treatments for emotional issues, I highly recommend this book to explore the healings of these cultures that have been effective for thousands of years. The Western World is just now learning about these methods, but they are not new to the universe.
I was working in the book department of Body, Mind & Soul holistic center on Route 110, and had begun studying shamanism with a local teacher, after a series of mystical experiences that had left me terrified and shaking. I needed training, that was sure, because I needed to understand this path I was being called to. And I also needed healing; I needed to have my soul parts returned to me.
When I opened this book to the checklist of soul loss symptoms, I saw every reason that I had always felt so lost and frightened, and at the same time somehow deadened inside. There had been long periods of time wherein colors were so dull they had almost appeared grey-black. There were periods of my childhood I had blocked out entirely.
At this time I was being trained to do shamanic journeying, and one night I was guided to retrieve my own soul. I actually had to check with a shaman who I was later to work with, to understand what this intense experience had been about. She confirmed what I already knew in my heart.
Later that year, I went to her to have 3 more parts returned to me.
Reading this book by Sandra Ingerman helped me to realize that gathering my soul was the necessary path I would begin to take, and that I would continue until I had achieved wholeness. This book was invaluable on the brave journey I needed to begin; there was no paradigm in my world up to this point for what I was about to embark upon, I knew I would just have to trust that I had been led to the right place, the right book, the right teachers.
The book is simple, straightforward, and the poetry is lovely. If you pick up a copy of this book, and know in your heart that it is time to reclaim your soul, please find a trustworthy healer, and begin your journey to wholeness. But do read this book first, so you will know what to expect, and what to look forward to.
The experiences I had following my own soul retrievals became the focus of my own recently published book. My goal was to bring you with me on the journey, so you would know you are never alone on your own path. From all the wonderful feedback I have received so far, I know in my heart that I achieved what I set out to do.
I cannot thank Sandra Ingerman enough for this precious book that helped me to achieve a richer, more vibrant, and amazingly magical life. The gifts that are waiting for you are even better than you can imagine.
From my Heart,

Journey by Night: A Solitary Journey
In this easy to read book you will find explanations of shamanic cosmologies and approaches to healing, particularly focused on reuniting people with shattered personalities who have literally lost fragments of themselves. While this may sound like a metaphoric description of psychological fragmentation, in the world of bioenergetic anatomy and healing it is a literal description of aspects of a person that may become fragmented and lost - not just to conscious awareness, but actually dislocated energetically from the person and existing in remote energetic/spiritual realms.
Ingerman details methods for locating and reuniting these fragments with their owners. Case descriptions provide more concrete and understandable details of how the fragmentations occur and how they can be repaired.
Carol, a participant in a shamanic workshop, went on her own shamanic journey. A teacher in one of the shamanic realms directed her attention to a childhood trauma that had left her with serious problems. Carol immediately recalled being raped by her father at age three.
Ingerman journeyed into shamanic realms, and with the help of her power animal observed the trauma occurring when Carol was three years old.
As I watched, I saw something for which I was totally unprepared. As the rape was taking place, I saw Carol's soul, her essence, separate from her body and leave. As I watched her departing soul, I was that it had gone into a place known in shamanism as the void - a place of pitch darkness, silence, lifelessness. (p. 42)
Ingerman traveled into the void, calling out to Carol's soul. Connecting with her, Ingerman found her willing to return with her to rejoin Carol. She said, 'Yes' and Ingerman felt her holding onto her back.
When we returned to ordinary reality, I blew the three-year-old soul into Carol's heart and the top of her head, as shamans have traditionally done. "Welcome home," I said to the part that had been lost in the void. (p. 42-43)
A few weeks after our session, Carol called me. She reported she felt as if she were present in her body for the first time in her adult life. Whereas she always had felt disconnected from herself before, she now experienced life directly and intenself. Colors appeared more vibrant. Plants seemed as alive as animals. No longer did she experience life as a movie she was merely observing. (p. 44)
Some may view these reports of personality fragmentations and healings as metaphoric imagery that facilitate a person's reuniting psychological splits which occurred under traumatic circumstances. If this is so, it is still a remarkable contribution to healing such splits. Under more conventional psychotherapeutic approaches, repairing split personalities may take many months and years of therapy. Shamanic healings often occur in a single session.
Others may understand these reports as descriptions of energetic and spiritual realities that are outside conventional, Western cosmological frameworks. My personal preference is for these explanations - which Ingerman details very clearly in this excellent book.
