I think I should ask this before proceeding further into this type of discussion as if it is not a commonly held
view here I will base my future posts with the general consensus in mind..

I think it is safe to say that most here believe that a human body is possessed by a Spirit originally born with.

Do you believe that another Spirit can displace the original or coexist along side or in the background of the original Spirit within the same human flesh suit ?

I'm hoping that all members who read this will comment so I can taylor my messages accordingly.
Thank you,
BK

My guess is that you'll find the people who post regularly on RR
have a variety of opinions on this subject and are willing to compare
them on these boards in a tolerant and constructive manner. At least,
this is what I had in mind when I created this group.

My personal opinion is essentially the same as that held by the
majority of traditional Spiritualists: the basic model is that a
soul incarnates in the body of most babies soon before or after birth
and remains there until physical death, at which time it survives
in the disembodied state for a while and eventually reincarnates.
I personally have memories of this happening to me a number
of times over the last few centuries, and over the course of a
long live, I have communicated with many, many other people
who have similar "past life" and "prelife" memories. So I believe
this model of the afterlife is supported by significant evidence.

However, I've seen evidence that some people are "new souls"
in the sense that no pre-existing soul reincarnated in their body
during infancy, but that a soul developed as the mind and
personality took shape during childhood. And  I've also seen
evidence that some people seem to have two souls incarnated
in their body at the same time. In some individuals, these souls
co-exist peacefully, and in others they war over control.

And in addition to this, I've read quite a few accounts describing
people with "multiple personalities", a phenomenon that most.
modern psychologists believe is purely mental. However, as a
Spiritualist, I feel it's reasonable to speculate that the incarnation
of multiple souls might be involved. (I've never met such a person,
so I don't have an' opinion based on my own experience.)

Plus the concept of "possession" complicate this picture still]
further. It's been widely believed in cultures all over the world
throughout history that a soul can "invade" a person's body
from outside and try to wrest control from their own soul.
Some concepts of possession are based on the belief that
another ordinary human soul is involved, but others conceive
of the the intruder as being supernatural: an angel, demon,
god or demigod, etc.

I've personally observed a number of cases where people
claimed this was going on, and in some of them my psychic
senses did indeed seem to detect the presence of an
invading soul. However, in others, it looked to me like
the actual cause was telepathic mind-control being practiced
by other living people or by disembodied spirits.

So IMO, this is a complex matter with no simple explanations,
and as such, well worth discussing here.
