A Power Animal is a spiritual being in animal form that protects and guides us through life. Most people have one Power Animal that remains with them throughout their lifetime. Knowing your Power Animal is, in fact, empowering. You are suddenly no longer along in your travel through life; you have a spiritual being who is always with you and that you can call on for help, healing, and protection. An additional  Power Animal may come to you during certain times of need, to help you overcome specific challenges in your life or to help you accomplish specific tasks.  For instance, Tess has an Eagle spirit that carries healing energy to those for whom she prays. This animal has been with her for many years -- in addition to her central animal spirit companion who has been with her for her whole life.


Power Animal Retrieval is the process of restoring the connection between a client and his or her animal protector through a Shamanic journey. Sometimes Tess restores the main Power Animal of a client; other times an Animal Spirit is reveals itself to help a client with a specific problem or obstacle. During Power Animal Retrieval, Tess joins her Spirit Teacher, who then leads her across time and space to find and retrieve the Power Animal  you need at that moment.


As with every healing session, Tess will first talk with you about your goals for your healing, after which she will journey to her Spirit Council to request guidance for your healing. Sometimes, your Spirit Guides will also be present for this. When she returns from this first journey, she will share with you what the Spirits had to say. 

Next, Tess will have you lie down on the floor beside her with her medicine blanket beneath you. She will need to touch your arm or some comfortable part of your leg or body during her journey. This physical connection ensures that she will be traveling just for you, to only retrieve a Power Animal for you. Tess will be listening to a recording of drumming to aid her in her travel. She will meet with her Spirit Teacher and then journey to find your lost Animal Spirit or a new Power Animal that you need at that time.

When Tess returns from her journey, she will sit up and help you do the same, and will blow the Animal Spirit she has retrieved through the crown of your head (your crown chakra) so that you can fully reconnect with it. She will then rattle around you to seal your Power Animal to you. Then Tess will talk with you about the Animal Spirit she encountered and brought back to you and the details of her journey. Many clients will record their session so that they can refer back to it later, or you are free to take notes in your journal.

All sessions are held strictly confidential and will not be shared without your permission. If you wish for Tess to speak with your counselor or therapist, she is happy to do so, but you will need to sign a release form.
