Power Animal Retrieval
Power Animals are members of your spiritual support network in other dimensions. They are allies, helping guides on your life path. These are not spirits of dead animals, but rather archetypical positive forces that are more ancient than human beings. At the same time, a power animal is not a metaphor, or a symbol. It is a real living being with an independent "I". Your power animal will have a unique personality. And the union of energies between you and it, necessarily will be harmonious and conducive for your growth.
A human being is typically born with at least one power animal already assigned to him/her, and some people have more. Additional Power Animals may also come to you during the course of your life, to help you during a particular period of your life, or to give you strength to cope with a specific difficult situation. Some power animals are guardians of an entire family, family line, community, or land.
According to the shamanic world view, it is possible to lose a power animal, just as it is possible to lose a part of your soul. Loss of a power animal is similar to soul loss - it can happen due to trauma. Sometimes the connection with a power animal is lost, due to soul loss, because the power animal is connected with that soul part. At other times the connection with a power animal atrophies due to non use. In the modern world, people often don’t know anything about power animals, or how to relate to them. If the Power Animal is forgotten, it may leave, seeking to reconnect with divinity in other realms. And sometimes a power animal is kicked out by the person, who may not want a particular power that it imbues the person with. Power comes with responsibility, and by abdicating the responsibility, you may inadvertently abdicate the power and the power animal as well. Power animals may also be targeted and harmed, bound, or stolen by dark magicians who want to harm the person or family. From a shamanic perspective, loss of any form of power eventually leads to illness.
In most of these cases, a power animal will not return by itself. Power Animal retrieval must be done in a journey by a shamanic practitioner. Arriale typically does Power Animal retrieval along with soul retrieval, if that soul part has one. And Power Animal retrieval can also be done on its own.
