We have discussed walk-ins before, but
never really investigated the full complexity of what happens when a
being takes over someone else’s body. I think it is time to take
another look at what occurs.
My data on this subject comes from
direct experience with being a walk-in and observing those who are
The original supposition was that a
walk-in occurred when a person went unconscious as a result of
illness, injury, or during an operation and another being would take
control of the body from that point onward.
Many years of SRT sessions have
revealed that we are not singular spiritual beings running a body
that is animated by a lower order being called a Genetic Entity.
Session after session have revealed us
to be a complex grouping of beings acting as a composite being, in
other words we are an aggregation of clustered beings and we
accumulate new clusters of beings as time goes on. Fortunately, most
of us have learned to operate as though we were a unified and
reasonably organized intelligence most of the time. One or more of
the group acts in a leadership role and the rest follow along in a
supporting role, most of the time.
Since we are a group of separate beings
with varying histories and different states of awareness, there can
be events which produce widely different reactions from different
beings. For example, there can be external stimuli which produce
pleasure for some beings and pain for others. The more complex the
stimuli, the more varied the responses will be.
As a result, an activity such as a
walk-in can produce a complex range of responses over time. The
person may appear absolutely normal for years and exhibit an
unexpected delayed reaction when the right circumstance appears. On
the other hand, the person can exhibit a definite personality change
immediately after the walk-in occurs.
In some cases, the original spiritual
occupant has abandoned the body before the walk-in occurs. In other
cases, the original occupant continues in a subordinate role. In
still other cases, the walk-in cluster of beings merges with the
original occupant beings and the final result is a personality that
is a merged version of the two original personalities.
A walk-in is not necessarily a
permanent condition. If the family, of a person who has experienced a
walk-in, objects to the walk-in, there are actions which can exorcise
the beings who have taken control of the body.
If the beings who have taken over the
body are not aware that they are trespassing, they can be convinced
to leave when presented with evidence they are interlopers. The
walk-in may have occurred during a childhood illness, for example,
and the beings have been integrated into the larger group who have
been controlling the body and do not recognize their differences for
many years. If the walk-in group is triggered by an external
influence and causes the person to behave in a manner that the family
considers insane, there will be efforts to bring the person back to
his or her senses.
I knew a childhood walk-in who had
remained quite normal for many years until she ran into a loved one
from her previous life. As she was married now, this caused so much
strife at home that her husband kicked her out of the house. She
eventually moved in with the person she had loved before although she
did not get divorced from her husband. She experienced a great deal
of internal conflict and eventually she went to a counselor who
exorcised her. Once she was removed from the scene, the original
personality took over and the person went back to her husband where
I know of another walk-in who did not
know he was a walk-in for about 50 years. All he knew was that there
was a period in his childhood where he permanently went out of
agreement with his mother. Once he learned about walk-ins, he was
puzzled why the original occupant was still present. The original
occupant is still with him and represents a particular facet of the
Another walk-in did not discover he was
a walk-in until he was receiving counseling and some early childhood
incidents would not resolve with the usual processes. Once it was
discovered that a walk-in had occurred at age 13, everything began to
fall into place.
Now that we have a more complete view
of the structure of our personalities, it becomes apparent that there
can be many different types of walk-ins and they can be happening on
a continuing basis. Our personalities are a result of the thoughts
and intentions of a host of beings who are participating in our daily
lives. The composition of the group can vary day by day as we take on
new spirits and lose others. The behavior of the group does not have
to change drastically, it can shift subtly as we become aware of
personality aspects we wish to change and as we realize that certain
traits are not ours.
If we are open to change and recruit
beings who can add to our abilities, our ability to change in
favorable ways is unlimited. If we consciously develop a personality
culture we like, we have a better chance of keeping that personality
stable over time as we will be able to recognize personality elements
that do not mesh with those we desire.
I think, in the long run, that we will actively cultivate personality changes by recruiting spirits with desirable characteristics that complement those we currently have. That way, we will be constantly tuning our personalities by adding in spirits who give us desirable skills and abilities. When walk-ins do occur, we will be prepared to make use of the useful ones and and to dispose of the one who do not fit in.
I forgot to add that most walk-ins happen in hospitals. Uncle Fred goes in for a liver transplant and comes home a different person. One man sent his wife for an operation and the woman who came home spoke with a different accent.
Sometimes the patient feels he or she has had enough pain and bails out. This provides an opportunity for the spirit hanging around the hospital hoping for a second chance at life.
If you have questions about your own
walk-in status, I will be happy to help you sort them out quickly. It
generally takes only one session.
