Free e-book: SOUL LOSS

Soul loss

When you experience trauma, emotional distress, or significant life events, a part of your soul may become fragmented or dissociate from your being. It also happens when we are forced to ‘fit in’ to be accepted (which, sadly, is the norm for most people today!). 

Soul loss can manifest in diverse ways, from a sense of incompleteness or numbness, to disconnection, depression, and difficulties with focus, confidence, and past events. It may lead to recurring patterns, a struggle to move forward, and lingering negative emotions like grief and anger.
