(This is from a chapter of my new book, “Talking To Spirits”. Some of this material has appeared elsewhere, but this is the first compilation in a useful form.)
5. Beings who think they are you
There will be days when you do not act like yourself and cannot seem to snap out of this unhappy frame of mind. This is usually accompanied by mood swings you cannot control even if you can see them coming on.
To others who know you, it will seem as if you have an invisible co-pilot who takes over when things do not go your way. You may even be dimly aware that you turn into this alternate personality at times but you have no control over the transition.
The transition can be short-lived, lasting only seconds, or it can last for days or even months depending on the stimulus. The transition can be dramatic or subtle, but you are not the same person when the transition occurs and the effects on your life and your relationships can be permanent.
Even when you are aware you are going into an altered state, you are unable to observe and analyze what is going on. You have a being or several beings who assume command when something in the environment triggers the switch.
A competent spiritual counselor will be able to discover the reason for the multiple personalities struggling for control and will enable all beings to reach agreement on a new arrangement.
6. Walk-ins and permanent possession by another spirit
Unfortunately, you will not be able to detect this condition by yourself, as you may not remember who was in charge before you arrived. You may discover this if someone mentions that you sure have changed since your operation or since the accident that almost killed you.
If you suspect that you are a walk-in, try remembering images from early parts of your life. You just may find that the early images are all still pictures while more recent images are available as full motion videos.
If you have encountered any of these situations, you need to pull in reinforcements. A trained spiritual counselor is the best solution, but a perceptive friend who cares for you may be all that you have at hand.
Knowing that you are being possessed by beings as described above may give you enough certainty to manage yourself and stay out of trouble until you find someone who can help.
The biggest problem these beings present is that they are the most intelligent and aggressive beings I have encountered in session. In some cases they are more able than you are.
You will find help if you can describe the problem to your potential reinforcement. Use the data in this chapter to show them what is happening. A trained spiritual counselor should be able to give you lasting relief.
