“Soul Retrieval” is the reclaiming of stolen/forgotten/repressed energies or parts of ourselves that were lost during, or as a result of, past trauma (Soul Loss). Soul Retrieval is like marching into your past, standing up to your demons and saying “I’ll have that part of myself back, thank you very much!”
“Soul Return” is the process of giving back crappy stuff that has been projected onto you, or that you have taken onto yourself, during past trauma.

I wrote this poem many, many years ago, after a trauma. Before the trauma, I was a person who talked too much. The shock from the trauma lasted about two years, during which I made friends with the silence and emptiness inside me. I love the stillness this trauma gifted me with. It carved great chasms into my being, within which Spirit could enter.
The Great Mystery spirals about me
A slow mist in silence creeping
seeping in through open wounds
into the emptiness of my soul
Everything and nothing
Again I surrender.
Listen. Feel. Know.
I give in
I let go to Mystery
I give up defining myself
Who I am, how I feel, where to go…
Because I am everything and nothing
Between here and nowhere
I am still
The silence grows
Like a monolith towering over me
I sit in respectful awe
My skin is burned
My shell crumbles
I am rendered, torn asunder
My soul scattered in pieces on the floor
Is this what it takes to know Silence?
