Villoldo, Dr Alberto - Cave diving and soul loss



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Soul Retrieval –  Dr Alberto Villoldo

When he lets you in you must ask the gatekeeper to guide you.  To one side you’ll notice a hill with an opening leading into a cavern.  Ask that you be guided into this cavern and into your Chamber of Wounds.  You have come here to witness the original wound that lives within you, the one that’s the most crucial for your own healing.

….step into the chamber of wounds and discover the play that is being acted out.  You are walking right onstage among all the players whom you may or may not recognise.  Look into the back of the chamber.  Is there a fire?  Who’s the person in the shadows?  What’s gathering dust up on the bookshelves?  Look about you and explore…

The wounded self could be a little boy or girl a baby an old person, or even someone of a different gender from your self.  These soul parts are aspects of who you are.  Ask your wounded self ‘Who are you?’ ‘When did you leave’ and ‘Why did you leave?’

……. Dive into the waters, let them carry you back to where you rested and wash away any energies that do not belong in the Middle World.  Then begin your journey back up through the bedrock………..
