When a spirit is ill-suited to its form, it causes imbalance and can spark unusual or unpredictable behavior at the physical level.
One of the most striking cases that clearly demonstrates how a spirit could be inappropriate for its body is that of a potty-wielding toddler that Leo and I worked with over 20 years ago. The little girl had caused her parents, who were both doctors, a lot of anxiety when she began exhibiting behavior that was well beyond her physical capability. There had been some progressively worsening events during the previous months that had raised both parents’ concerns, but one incident drew a definite line.
Two months earlier, as her father sat watching TV one evening, the then 15-month old child walked over and picked up an antique wooden potty that had been placed behind the sofa. With one hand, she raised the potty over her head and hit her Dad with it. He couldn’t believe what had happened, because the potty weighed at least 15 pounds. Fortunately, the child had missed his head and only hit him on the shoulder (and, thankfully, it was only for decorative purposes). It was a seemingly impossible feat for a child of her age and size! Where was she getting this abnormal strength and why did she show such aggressive behavior? It was at that point that the little girl’s mother wondered if there might be a spiritual reason and eventually decided to bring her to see us.
That afternoon, as Leo and I worked with both the tiny toddler and her mother, we found that the spirit was of a much higher vibration than was appropriate for such a sweet innocent child. Some spirits have the ability to demonstrate certain characteristics at the physical level. This one wasn’t able to adjust properly and was getting increasingly frustrated with its form. Once Leo had removed it and found a replacement spirit for the little girl, she seemed happily nonchalant about the whole process and started playing with her toys on the floor. Her mother said that she would bring her back the following week so that we could see how she was doing.
When they returned for a session a week later the whole family came, but the father seemed a little disgruntled. He explained to us that he had never considered spiritual healing before, but both parents were convinced that there was no physical reason that their daughter could be so strong. As a father he was also concerned about the growing intensity of her aggressiveness that seemed to be aimed at him. He said he was very surprised at how much better adjusted his daughter seemed to be after just one week, as she was remarkably calmer and more interested in activities that were typical for her age. At that point he said he wanted to receive a healing, so that the three of them would be able to work together as a family.
After we finished the session and they were about to leave, I remember vividly his comment: “So all I have to do is to keep my chakras closed? Then I’ll do it!” His firm commitment to remain closed to negative energy/spirits was notably sincere and successful.
There are so many ways in which a spirit can interfere with its form, even in early childhood. Children are extremely sensitive to the spiritual world and, when they have a positive spirit that is well-suited and working in their interest, they can enjoy a happier, more fulfilling childhood. And parents can worry less about them.
