Unveiling the Complex Effects of Spiritual Walk-Ins and Soul Possession - by Ashley Brothers

Updated: Aug 9

Good morning my soul brothers and sisters. Today I want to share about the topic of Walk-ins and how they may positively or negatively impact a person's life depending upon the nature, vibration, and intention of the being that has chosen to inhabit the body of a human being. This possession may be partial or full and may occur with or without a person's knowledge or permission. I will share my personal experience with a walk-in in another post.

A spiritual walk-in, also known as a soul exchange or soul transition, is a phenomenon within spiritual and metaphysical beliefs where a person's original soul is replaced by a new soul entity. This process is thought to occur due to an agreement between the original soul and the incoming soul, often with the intention of assisting the individual in their spiritual growth, and life path, or to fulfill a specific purpose. The spiritual significance and impact of a spiritual walk-in can vary greatly depending on one's beliefs and experiences.

Here are the positive effects of Walk-ins:

1. Evolution and Growth:

In many spiritual perspectives, the concept of a walk-in is seen as a means for the soul to accelerate its evolution and growth. The incoming soul might possess different knowledge, experiences, and qualities that can contribute to the person's spiritual journey. This exchange can offer the opportunity to learn new lessons and explore different aspects of existence.

2. Purpose and Mission:

Some individuals believe that walk-ins occur when a specific mission or purpose needs to be fulfilled. The incoming soul may bring unique skills, talents, or insights that align with the individual's life purpose. This can lead to a greater sense of clarity and determination in pursuing their life's mission.

3. Healing and Transformation:

For individuals who have experienced trauma, a spiritual walk-in can be a way to facilitate healing and transformation. The incoming soul might possess qualities that help the individual process and overcome their challenges, providing a fresh perspective and renewed energy for healing.

4. Spiritual Awakening:

A walk-in experience can catalyze a profound spiritual awakening. The sudden shift in consciousness and awareness brought by the incoming soul can lead to heightened spiritual insights, a deeper connection to the Divine, and a stronger commitment to spiritual practices.

5. Perspective and Wisdom:

The incoming soul may bring with it wisdom and insights from different realms or dimensions. This expanded perspective can aid the individual in understanding complex spiritual concepts, connecting with higher guidance, and navigating life's challenges with a greater sense of peace.

6. Integration Challenges:

While the concept of a walk-in offers potential benefits, the process can also be challenging. Integrating the energies and consciousness of the incoming soul with the individual's existing personality and memories can lead to confusion, disorientation, and an identity crisis.

7. Shift in Interests and Relationships:

The spiritual walk-in experience can lead to shifts in interests, hobbies, and relationships. The person may find themselves drawn to different activities or forms of self-expression that resonate with the new soul's essence.

8. Personal Transformation:

A spiritual walk-in often marks a significant turning point in an individual's life. This transition can lead to radical personal transformation, altering their perceptions, priorities, and life choices.

Here are some potential negative effects that individuals may associate with spiritual walk-ins:

1. Identity Confusion:

If an individual experiences a sudden shift in consciousness or identity due to a perceived spiritual walk-in, they may feel disoriented and struggle to reconcile their previous sense of self with the new consciousness. This can lead to confusion, emotional turmoil, and a loss of personal identity.

2. Disconnection from Previous Life:

The departure of the original soul, if believed to occur, may result in a sense of detachment from the individual's previous life experiences, memories, and relationships. This can lead to a feeling of being disconnected from one's history and personal connections.

3. Integration Challenges:

Integrating a new consciousness or energy into an existing body and personality can be complex and challenging. The incoming entity's qualities, values, and preferences might conflict with the original soul's identity, causing internal struggles and disharmony.

4. Loss of Personal Agency:

In cases where the idea of spiritual walk-ins is taken to an extreme, the notion that another entity has taken over one's body might lead to a sense of powerlessness and loss of personal agency. Individuals might attribute all decisions and actions to the new entity rather than taking responsibility themselves.

5. Emotional and Psychological Disruption:

A sudden shift in consciousness, whether perceived as a walk-in or not, can cause emotional and psychological disruption. Individuals might experience mood swings, anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges as they navigate the changes in their sense of self.

6. Relationship Strain:

If an individual undergoes a significant personality change due to perceived spiritual walk-ins, it can strain relationships with family, friends, and loved ones who may struggle to understand or relate to the transformed individual.

7. Loss of Personal Growth Opportunities:

The challenges and lessons associated with an individual's original life path and soul's journey might be bypassed if an incoming entity assumes control. This could potentially hinder personal growth and the learning of important life lessons.

8. Skepticism and Isolation:

Due to the controversial nature of the concept, those who share their experiences of spiritual walk-ins might face skepticism, disbelief, or isolation from others who do not share similar beliefs.


The potential negative effects of spiritual walk-ins should be considered in the context of an individual's belief system and interpretation of such experiences. While some view spiritual walk-ins as transformative and enlightening, others may see them as potentially disruptive to one's sense of self and life path. It's essential for individuals to explore their beliefs in a balanced and discerning manner, seeking guidance from trusted sources and professionals if necessary. As with any spiritual or metaphysical topic, understanding and interpretation can vary widely among individuals.

For those that seek the removal of an intrusive walk-in, contact a shamanic practitioner that is experienced in compassionate spirit release, depossession, shamanic extraction, and soul retrieval.
