Cultural views of reincarnation and why we forget our destiny

You will explore different reincarnation concepts and theories about why we forget our destiny on incarnating in a particular lifetime. In this context we will experience archetypal processes from different mythologies that facilitate forgetfullness and remembrance of our destiny.

Indicators and benefits of destiny retrieval

This encompasses the main indications that destiny retrieval may be appropriate for an individual together with the benefits that can potentially arise from undertaking such work.

Destiny retrieval preparation

This involves a number of techniques that are undertaken ahead of destiny retrieval work, including removing clutter form your life, energy body management, understanding expectations and projections, learning how to use appropriate language and stories about ourselves, releasing energetic attachments that no longer serve you, resolving issues with relationships and discovering and removing blocks such as limiting beliefs.

Spirits, archetypes and symbols associated with destiny

We will interact with relevant destiny related spirits such as the Greek Moirai, the Norse Norms and the Wyrd Sisters. We will also explore archetypes such as spiders and tricksters, together with symbols associated with destiny including the Moon, spinning wheels, webs, the World Tree, the crossroads, the book of destiny and the star of destiny.

Destiny retrieval exploration and healing rituals

You will participate in a number of ceremonies and rituals to explore your destiny and give or receive healing. This includes working with spirits to remember our destiny, meeting spirits who can help us with key decisions at major transition points, and learning how to perform destiny retrieval for other people so that you can use this healing modality yourself. We will also explore our collective destiny.

How to live authentically and fulfill your life purpose

You will gain a range of benefits including:

  1. A restored feeling of our life having purpose and meaning, that life is worth living, that we can see new possibilities for our life, and having a general sense of well-being.
  2. Feeling on track, that we are aligned with our destiny, we are doing what we are supposed to be doing, and are more authentic. Knowing who we are and why we are here.
  3. Removal of old behaviour patterns and negative feelings, including limiting beliefs.
  4. Allowing us to follow our true calling, often a more spiritual, creative or service-oriented life.
  5. Having a more positive view of aging and death.
