Soul Therapies

The Soul Channel typically refers to any therapy which has a spiritual connection as a ‘soul therapy’. Soul therapies often focus on physical body illnesses or psychological dis-ease (intentionally spelled with a hyphen) which are rooted in spiritual processes — the ‘spirit’ component of the ‘mind-body-spirit’ overall health equation. In such cases, the soul therapy is often referred to as Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

Soul therapies are tools of the soul therapist or spiritualist and are performed in accordance with their spiritual beliefs. Unless a soul therapist has other credentials, they should never portray themselves as medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists or other medical practitioners. Yet it should also be recognized that there are many highly educated doctors who are specifically trained in psychology and soul therapies; perhaps the most common example is hypnosis or hypnotherapy.

The following are some common soul therapies:


Meditation is an excellent, natural form of therapy. Meditation assists the individual to connect with their inner self, to establish harmony and balance among the conscious, subconscious and superconscious, and to maintain harmony among the body, mind and spirit. With this harmony comes greater health and happiness through the release of tensions and the stresses of daily life. A few minutes of meditation can erase an entire day of stress.

Hypnotherapy (Hypnosis)

Hypnosis is quite similar to meditation in that both produce an altered state of consciousness, thereby creating a heightened state of suggestibility. When used correctly as a therapeutic tool, this increased state of suggestibility can be used to alter thinking processes so as to eliminate phobias (fears), minimize pain and anger, balance energy systems, retrieve forgotten information from the past, and open hidden, previously inaccessible experiences and memories.

Dream Therapy

“Dream therapy” and “dream interpretation” are two completely different concepts. With formal dream therapy, the therapist places the client into a mild altered state of consciousness, during which the subconscious replays the dream over and over. In its mild meditative state, the conscious mind can receive all of the detail of the dream and analyze what it is receiving. At the same time, the therapist guides the client to a greater level or higher perspective of understanding by asking key, nondirective questions. Understanding the dream relieves fear and provides new insights.

Animal Guide Therapy

Today the connection between personality traits and animal traits has evolved into a very effective form of therapy. The major components of an individual’s personality are easily associated with the traits of various animals, and the individual can be guided through a fairly simple meditative or hypnotic state to visualize those specific animals. These are referred to as the individual’s “animal guides,” including birds, with the predominant guide representing the individual’s predominant personality traits. Typically, each individual will have from seven to nine animal guides.

Regression Therapy

Regression therapy uses hypnosis as a tool for accessing the subconscious mind where the client’s long term memory is stored. Once the long term memory is accessed, the client’s subconscious is “regressed” or moved back in time through the memories of the client’s life to uncover the root cause of any illness or dis-ease (intentionally spelled this way). Regression therapy can be applied to the current life or to uncover past lives.

Progression Therapy

Progression therapy is similar to regression therapy, except that it looks at future events instead of focusing on the past. Progression therapy examines life from two perspectives: First, it accepts that there is a tomorrow, whether it be the tomorrow of the present life or in some future life; in other words, it assumes that life will continue beyond today. Second, it projects into the future multiple high probability outcomes for the challenges we are working on today.

Spirit Releasement Therapy

The majority of religions believe in the concept of demonology and the ability of ‘negative entities’ — such as demons and ‘unclean spirits’ — to attach to your energy field and influence your life in adverse ways. ‘Unclean spirits’ are disembodied people (ghost energies) whose physical body has died, and they are lost in the earthbound sphere. Demons are ‘dark force entities’ which specifically seek to disrupt lives. Spirit Releasement Therapy seeks to remove both types of entities, although it rarely engages the more aggressive demonic entities.


Demons or ‘dark force entities’ exist and can possess and destroy the life plan of an otherwide healthy individual. Classes on exorcism are sponsored by the Catholic Church at least once every year, and it is consistently noted that there is a shortage of trained exorcists. Exorcism is similar to Spirit Releasement Therapy, although it focuses on demonology and typically the more aggressive (angry, evil, powerful) demons.

Fragmentation Therapy

A “fragmented soul” or “fragmented spirit” refers to a person who has separated a portion or fragment of his or her spirit consciousness and has attached that fragment to another person, place or object. The fragmented soul is less than whole, thereby causing mental or emotional problems. Similarly, if the fragment is attached to another person, that person may experience mental, emotional, or even physical problems resulting from the influence of the fragmented soul. Fragmentation therapy uses established protocols for identifying the location of the lost consciousness and providing for safe recovery.

Automatic Writing

One of the most common forms of channeling information from the Soul Side is a personal “automatic writing” session. This concept will be new to many readers, while it is actually a common practice with a long history. Automatic writing derived over time from the concept of “free association writing” used in psychoanalysis as first developed by Sigmund Freud. Yet its roots date back to the early “stream of consciousness” concept found in early Buddhist scriptures.
