Shamanic Wound Extraction

Discover Deep Trauma Healing

Wound extraction is a process used in shamanic healing to remove the constellated energy of a personal and/or ancestral trauma from the body-psyche-soul complex. This assists in removing blocks to abundance, joy & wellbeing. 

Wound extraction has been used by many cultures throughout time. We have understood for thousands of years the dynamic interconnection between the mind, emotions, energy body and the soul. 

Together, wound healing and soul retrieval can be a game-changer in your life for the better. 

What is a Wound from the Point of View of Shamanic Healing? 

When we experience a traumatic event or are subject to prolonged abuse, it creates a wound within the psyche and energy body. Much like the wound created in the physical body when we have surgery, have an accident, or a bruise from a fall, it can take time and care to heal.  

But sometimes, it doesn't. Sometimes a wound in the psyche (the dimension of mind-emotions-ego consciousness) does not naturally resolve. Indeed, with some traumas, even the memories get suppressed because the conscious mind cannot handle or integrate the experience. This is particularly true of childhood abuse or very severe traumas, such as with war, sexual assault, or other forms of violence. Even grief from the loss of a loved one can become a wound festering in the psyche and energy body. It literally inhabits the energy body as rips, tears, holes, or a constellation of heavy matter and can create symptoms such as depression, anxiety, addictions, and failure to thrive in relationships, work, or finances. 

How each person responds to traumatic stressors and events is unique and is not determined by the severity of the trauma experienced.

The 3 Shamanic Worlds


Shamanism provides a simple, yet meaningful map of our beingness, from the physical to the astral planes. 


The Lower World is the aspect of reality and consciousness connected to our subconscious, the past, our ancestors, and powerful helpers and spirit allies who help us grow and evolve. 

The Middle World is the underlying energetic dimension of this physical plane of existence. It also holds all experience in the present. Here we meet elemental beings who will assist us in a variety of ways to live prosperously and well in our daily lives. 

The Upper World is the Superconscious and the place where we connect to our Soul, or Higher Self, and to what we might call Angelic Beings in what might be commonly referred to as the heavenly realms.  


A shamanic healer can journey to and engage with all these domains of consciousness and experience on behalf of another person. 

The Lower World is where I go to find and extract personal, ancestral, and collective wounds. 

In my personal experience, wound extraction was a missing piece in my journey of recovery from long-term abuse. My discovery of this shamanic practice after years of therapy changed the trajectory of my healing from trauma. This is because shamanic healing addresses dimension of soul and energy body, whereas western psychology addresses the mind and emotions. Trauma can be a process that is activated on a soul level and thus changes our inner and outer environments on an energetic level. 

Seeking professional help from a shamanic healer to heal trauma can be an additional tool in your path to recovery. In my case, I combined it with working with a licensed, clinical psychologist which you can too. I myself am a shamanic healer, spiritual coach, mentor, and teacher. For almost 20 years, I have provided shamanic healings and teachings on Awakened Heart Shamanism to more than 2000 clients and students globally. My work is spiritually-based and trauma-informed.

Wound extraction can be key in your trauma healing journey. If you have felt chronically stuck or blocked because of past traumas despite being in therapy, this means that the wound is festering within the body-psyche-soul complex. 

The Matrix of Trauma Healing.png

An unhealed wound creates a constellated matrix like a tumor in the body-psyche-soul complex. Shamanic healing actually removes this disruptive block, along with its unconscious and conscious effects. At that point, all the consciousness associated with the trauma, both personal and ancestral, can be transmuted into wisdom and light.
