First, a little background material for those you of you who just joined us:
We are all immortal spiritual beings experiencing multiple human lifetimes or non-human lifetimes. Many of us can remember other lifetimes and some of us can even learn from these earlier lifetimes. The usual game is to pick up a body and animate it and work with it until it fails us. Then we go and pick up another body if we choose to do so.
So, what about possession?
Picking up a body can be done in many different ways, depending on what condition you are in when your previous body fails. If your death was shocking and horrifying, you may not wish to pick up a body for years or even eons. You may find that it is more acceptable to attach yourself to someone who is already running a body and ride shotgun, where you get to sit in the front seat while somebody else drives. You get the sensations and experience while another being does the work of running a body and carving out a career.
You both may think you are the person himself, but you are just one of a host of beings who think they are Elvis Presley, George Carlin, or your grandson. The truth of the matter is that we are surrounded by spiritual beings and very few of them are clad in flesh, to use the biblical term. Anyone who has had the opportunity to communicate with spirits knows that there is no shortage of discarnate beings, those without bodies.
In most cases, each of us receives a constant stream of admonitions and advice from these spirits who surround us and this unsought advice usually serves to distract us from what we wish to do. In some cases, these spirits actually take control of us and direct us to take actions we would ordinarily not do. This is more common than you may realize as this is what happens when someone mentions a highly charged topic that upsets you and you want to do them bodily harm.
What this means is that, instead of the charming model of one spirit in one body, what we have is a mob of spirits trying to run a body and present an image of sanity to the world. When the spirits are working in harmony, we see a well-adjusted person with many different skills. When the spirits are at odds with each other, we see a person who exhibits many different and distinct personalities.
This is why, in Spiritual Rescue Technology, we recognize we are composite personalities and we use our knowledge to get our entire team working in harmony. When this is done correctly, a person has access to all of the skills and knowledge of each spirit in the group and the results are amazing. The important factor here is if the entire group of spirits is taking responsibility for the performance of the team, the level of performance is unbelievably high. You get the computational power of each being working in tandem, like a modern multiprocessor.
When spirits work in this fashion, can we really call it possession? We operate as a unified group with the strength and power of many spirits combined. However, there may be a downside to this harmony. Does each of us recognize that we share a single human identity? In many of the cases I have encountered, every spirit thinks he is the person, even though he is only a part of the overall personality.
What happens if some of these spirits are separated from the main body of spirits because of an accident or through exorcism or spiritual processing? Will each group think they are the ORIGINAL person? This remains to be seen.
We do know that with standard SRT processing, each group of spirits regains their original identity and is free to assume a new identity if they choose.
