The Current Global Epidemic of Soul Loss
Now more than ever, humanity is suffering a level of Soul Loss that is virtually unprecedented. What some label as PTSD (and other things like depression, apathy, addictions, etc.), is actually soul loss. Humanity is suffering soul loss on individual, family, community, national and global levels. It is a true epidemic. Many believe and fear we are approaching a tipping point where once critical mass is hit…there’ll be no going back.
Many have no idea what the term “soul loss” actually means. The article below beautifully and simply describes it. Here is one quick example. Have you ever heard of someone who was in a really bad car accident and they say that all they remember is when the accident started and then they woke up in the hospital? They don’t remember any details of the accident. And after this accident, they’ve never quite been the same. It could be dramatic or subtle but something is “off” and they can’t put their finger on it. That is a soul loss event. It is actually a protection mechanism that sometimes corrects on its own but many times requires intervention.
Symptoms of Soul Loss:
Soul loss is easily recognizable if you know what you’re looking for. Here’s a checklist of some of the classic symptoms:
• feelings of being fragmented, of not being all here.
• blocked memory–an inability to remember parts of one’s life.
• an inability to feel love or receive love from another.
• emotional remoteness.
• a sudden onset of apathy or listlessness.
• a lack of initiative or enthusiasm.
• a lack of joy.
• a failure to thrive.
• an inability to make decisions.
• an inability to discriminate.
• chronic negativity.
• suicidal tendencies.
• melancholy or despair.
• chronic depression.
One of my biggest concerns is that there are not enough authentic Shamanic practitioners who are initiated and specialize in soul retrieval. It is not something you can just take a workshop for then do. This specialty is of a higher calling and requires initiations that many have never experienced.
Please beware when someone says they are a Shaman (as that’s your first clue to run in the opposite direction) and that they do soul retrievals. A word to the wise should be sufficient. If you would like referrals for people who do soul retrievals, you can contact me privately. I’ve written about Dr. Wesselman as well as my own Soul Loss and the Soul Retrieval that Jill Kuykendall did for me in my book, JOURNEY OF A DREAM MASTER.
Below is a photo I took in Sonoma, California of Hank soaking up the mana of JDM with his wife Jill in the background. We were there doing an advanced Shamanic week of study with a small select group hand-picked by Dr. Hank and Jill.
Below is a link to an article about the three causes of spiritual illness including soul loss. There are also articles on Soul Loss and Soul Retrieval. Please read and watch the video(s). Dr. Hank Wesselman and his wife, Jill Kuykendall, have written much and their website is full of valuable information and incredible insights all free to those seeking the knowledge. I highly recommend their books and workshops. There are also YouTube videos of them that are very enlightening and fun. Their YouTube channel is: SharedWisdomCircle.

“Although the term “soul loss” is not familiar to most Westerners, examples of it are expressed daily in our language and descriptions of personal hardships. Media interviews and news reports include individuals’ comments such as “I lost a part of myself when that (trauma) happened” and “I have not been the same since.” When discussing soul loss with inquiring individuals, most everyone has a sense of having lost a “part” of themselves at some time in life, yet virtually no one has the awareness that the missing part(s) could be recovered. They can.”
