Just as a child feels terrified when separated from their parents, in a similar way a spirit can experience frustration when separated from its body.
Most people assume that their spirit (soul) is happily nestled within them, but this isn’t always the case. When a spirit is constantly ignored because there is no communication between it and its body, it gradually weakens. If this persists over a prolonged period of time, a spirit becomes vulnerable to stronger spirits that are attracted to their body.
When I was a child, I was never given any information about my spirit, other than my immortal soul would be sent to hell if I didn’t worship a deity in the way that I was instructed. Gladly this blatant scare tactic didn’t stop me from wondering if it were all true. I was told that my spirit belonged to someone else but, once I learned that it really belongs to me, it changed my whole outlook on life.
A spirit depends on its body to interact with it and, when we’re small children, we inherently know how to do this. Then, as we reach a certain point, we tend to forget as we start to follow the instructions of those who are in charge of our lives.
Most of us are taught at an early age to relinquish the plight of our spirit to a deity that has been conceptualized by an institution and believe we never have to worry about it again. Religions take control over one’s spirituality, while working with one’s spirit presents the ultimate freedom.
As the pressures of life mount, people can actually open up to allow less-than-beneficial spirits into their form through their spiritual apertures. This initially happens as children and teenagers experience emotional overload in response to the trauma of mistreatment such as beatings, molestation, rape, bullying and other childhood abuse that causes intense emotions such as:
Fear Guilt Hatred Anxiety Despair
Anger Sadness Self-pity Jealousy
Once a child opens a spiritual opening related to an emotional upheaval, they’re vulnerable to the influence of aimless spirits that hang around, looking for an opportunity to invade a child through an open chakra. Then the spirit can actually ‘kick out’ the child’s original spirit. Sometimes the original spirit will remain around the child, regardless of whether they’re acknowledged or not, but often the spirit will be on its way.
As the child grows older, there can be a continuous disconnect between their spiritual self and their physical self, since the spirit they house isn’t the one that they were born with or they have allowed more than one spirit within. Since no Light spirit (i.e. a spirit with positive knowledge) would enter a person in this manner, the spirit is always negatively oriented. Depending on the level of negative intensity of the spirit, there can be ongoing problems at all levels, including self-destructive tendencies.
What I’ve learned through my work is that most people are capable of adapting to a spirit that is not their original, but there are always side effects. My work entails bringing either the person’s original spirit back or finding a suitable spirit that is vibrationally compatible. In either case, the spirit has to be positively oriented. In this way, most quickly find the missing part of themselves that brings them a sense of purpose and meaning.
Some people are detached from their spirit all their life and never learn how to interact with it. Apart from making life essentially better, the most fundamental of all reasons that a person should choose to consciously interact and progress with their spirit is so that their spirit can move on into the positive realm when their body expires.
