Psychopomp or Soul Guide work is a journeying technique done for the spirits of the deceased who may have gotten lost or had problems in making the transition to the Afterlife. It can also be helpful for the living, since displaced souls, not realizing that they have died, may try to continue to interact with those left behind. Soul Guiding may form part of Exorcism or Depossession by helping haunting souls to leave a place or person to whom they have become attached in their confusion. Exorcism and Depossession are done in a journey or by performing certain rituals that cause a possessing spirit to leave the possessed person or place. In shamanic practice this is not a simple banishment; they will take up residence elsewhere. In the case where a human soul is being exorcised it must be healed and helped to the Otherworld. In the case of a non-human entity it must be escorted to a spirit place where it can do no harm, or the negative energy must be transformed shamanically into a neutral or positive one.

Psychopomp work is also sometimes done at the request of relatives or friends who feel that the deceased person has not made a successful crossing due to trauma at death or confusion about his or her death process.
