Many of us at some point in life will experience several, consequential or almost random unwanted similar events.
Examples are : always developing relationships with uncompatible partners or meeting partners who are not available etc.
All these are signs that clearly indicate there is a "pattern" working unbeknownst to you in the background of your energy field. Regardless what your current conscious may want, these patterns are powerful energetical synopsises playing in the background and like all energy within a certain vibrational level, they attract similar energy; thus create attraction for certain scenarios and people in your life.
This might originate from past trauma in this life or energetical inheritance from your family line. The best way to explain it is to consider this: your energy field is an invisible envelope around you, that stores experiences, maps and patterns of this life experiences and even the past ones. When one pattern is very rooted and has active energetical circuits going, it will attract similar experiences with that polarity in your field and therefore in your life. This will attract and manifest powerful repetitions of that very similar experience. Many are troubled by the numerous wrong relationships they form, only to find out some day, it was their own field to trap those patterns and attract those situations. Healing these patterns means locating them, discerning where they originated and taking care of them. And from there, one can truly be in charge of their life.
Healing and mending these issues are done on a psychological, soul, heart, mythic and energy field level by a Shamanic practitioner. Once the pattern or trauma is located, the Shamanic practitioner will know what is most appropriate to do, whether via a soul retrieval or an illumination or other healing modalities.
We can then be in charge of what goes on in our world by working on updating our energy fields and making sure no counterproductive program is playing and creating unwanted scenarios in our lives.
