To me, this sounds as if you have experienced power loss. First off, you say that some months ago your life started to decline. In what way was this
manifested for you? Think back to when you felt this decline and take note of what events were taking place.
There are times when we experience a loss of power when one of our spirit helpers leaves, which can be for any number of reasons, and another does not
fill its place. Spirit helpers (these are usually in the form of power animals) coming in and out of our lives at particular times is normal, and we
can do our own work for ourselves by asking for a new helping spirit to enter into a relationship with us. When we do this, we ask for power,
protection, and support from our Spirit Guides, which are different from Spirit helpers. It's fine if you do not know who they are, they know, and
they are there to be of service to you.
The feeling of emptiness can be attributed to soul loss. Soul loss occurs when we experience a trauma, such as a breakup, a loss of a child, a car
accident, etc. The soul fragments, and the part that was affected leaves, and moves into the spirit world, and is in the care of an Ancestor, or a
spirit helper or guide. Therapists call the fragmentation dissociation. Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome is an excellent example of this. When affected
from soul loss, one may ask for a healing from a shamanic practitioner in your area. They bring back the part that fragmented, but the trauma does not
come back with the part. The practitioner will work with you to work through the healing process. But you must ask, that is when the healing begins.
They may also suggest speaking with other therapists, if needed.
I think finding someone in your area who is certified to do this kind of spiritual work will be of use to you in some way. Make sure they are
reputable. You will know them by reputation, and they probably won't be listed in the phone book or yellow pages. This link
will help point you in the right direction.
Good luck to you, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
