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 walk-ins.
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 she remained.
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 overall personality.
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.
