Shamans look at the spiritual form of illness which might manifest on an emotional or physical level. Most shamanic cultures around the world believe that illness is due to the loss of the soul.
It is believed that whenever we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul flees the body in order to survive the experience.
The definition of soul meaning is our essence, life force energy or the part of our vitality that keeps us alive and thriving.
The types of trauma that could cause soul loss in our culture today would be Surgery, Addictions, Divorce, or Death of a loved one.
Any kind of Abuse sexual, physical, or emotional, An Accident, Being in a war, Being a victim of a terrorist act, Acting against our morals, Being in a natural disaster such as a Fire or anything we have experienced that caused us hurt or deep pain
In shamanism we understand that parts of the soul leave the body and go to a place in what shamans call non ordinary reality where it waits until someone intervenes in the spiritual realms and facilitates its return, That someone could be a shamanic practitioner/Healer

If you were to be in a head on car collision the last place that you would want your essence to be at the point of impact is fully in your body your psyche could not endure that kind of pain.
