There are many life-changing events that can mimic a walk-in or soul exchange. After describing what a walk-in is, I feel it is important to define what a walk-in or soul exchange is not.
A walk-in or soul exchange is not the same as a near-death or other spiritually-transforming experience, soul activation, mid-life crisis, Kundalini awakening, or dark night of the soul. It is not an ET or angelic visitation, or the baptism in the Holy Spirit. It is not the same as channeling a spirit being, having a dissociative episode, or getting a download of higher vibrational energy. However, a soul exchange can certainly occur during any one of these experiences.
So I will attempt to explain what each of these is and you can compare that to what a walk-in actually is.

Activations and Downloads
Our soul is perfect, regardless of what we experience here on Earth. However, in order to help us realize our divinity, we may encounter a “bump up” in energy that helps us attain a new spiritual level of awareness, which is revealing or uncovering the beauty of what is already there.
From time to time, you may receive a download of spiritual information or higher truth. These downloads are similar to how our computer automatically updates its software or operating system. This occurs as the body is able to receive, anchor, and function with the faster vibration of the monad, oversoul, and advanced versions of your soul.
These downloads seem to come randomly. Like the arcade game where you toss a token onto the shelf with other tokens that have begun to stack up, you hope that the tokens you add to the pile will cause an avalanche of tokens to fall into the bin below where you can collect your windfall. This “build up” of energy may go unnoticed until the shelf starts to get full. That is when we begin to encounter difficult situations or feel a heaviness that indicates it is time to break through to the next level and begin to embody a higher octave frequency or future self. They can also come when you are around someone who is carrying high energy or after an activation.
Once the upgrades start, they will continue, and you may get mini activations at any time, with or without warning. You may get a “hit” in your senses that something is about to happen. You may hear a buzzing sound in your ears, feel light-headed or dizzy, sense an expansion of energy around you or in your body, experience hypersensitivity in your skin, or just know intuitively that you are about to get a motherload! When you notice any of these symptoms, tune in and ask your guidance what is occurring and how you can assist. The key is to be aware of what is happening so you can cooperate and make the process easier and faster.
Many people are afraid of what some call the “shadow side” because they start experiencing new feelings or desires—erotic or sexual energy arising—that are considered inappropriate by social conditioning. This is a natural occurrence when your heart is open to others and your chakras are allowing energy to flow freely. It is time for us to shift our views about sexuality and the expression of affection with vibrationally matched others—even strangers—that we feel a soul connection with. Supernatural gifts also start coming forth because this is how we were originally programmed to operate had we not been brainwashed to believe that we are limited and puny subjects of a punishing God.
Higher octave energy is anchored within the body and electromagnetic field as a result of the unveiling of the authentic self; therefore, a period of integration may be required as higher vibrational frequencies are being integrated. These frequencies are actually restructuring the DNA to support the light body that we are in the process of building. One of the most notable symptoms of integration is the need for more rest or sleep. Thankfully, these events do not typically cause the huge shift in personality that a soul exchange often does. They do bring an expansion of consciousness—a new or heightened awareness that we are spirit beings having a human experience, and the incoming fire tends to quickly advance the recipient forward on his or her spiritual path.
Many times, the higher current will upset the ego or dislodge lower-vibrating entities. These immature aspects of the personality need to be lovingly “re-parented” or trained not to interfere with the ascension process. The end result is that we are being transformed by the renewing of our mind or healing of our brains and emotions. Thus, we gain a greater ability to recognize that we are one in and with spirit.
There has been a lot of attention in the media in the past few years regarding galactic spacecraft visiting Earth. For nearly a century people have reported seeing unidentified flying objects, and have shared encounters in which they were taken on board by off-planet beings for some scientific purpose. I believe it is wise to entertain the idea that we are not alone in the universe and that we are not the only conscious or intellectual beings in our galaxy. My hope is that if our galactic family does make their presence known in a visible form that our natural eyes can see, our military does not attempt to blast them with nuclear weapons. Whatever we do to our planet affects every star, planet, galaxy, and consciousness in our universe—and possibly beyond. Starseeds come to serve both Earth and their own world, according to the Universe’s plan of unity.
Since I wrote about near-death experiences in my book, More Than Meets the Eye ~ True Stories about Death, Dying, and Afterlife, I will not go into a lot of detail about it here. Life reviews, traveling through a tunnel of light, meeting deceased loved ones, Jesus, and other ascended masters, being told to go back and complete this lifetime—are included in the reports we hear when a person’s soul temporarily visits the afterlife and returns to the body. This can easily facilitate a pre-arranged soul swap, but not everyone who has a near-death experience is a walk-in.
Many people can channel entities, and everyone can receive messages from their spirit guides. Some channels surrender their bodies to the entity who wants to speak through them. I have never been a fan of giving up that kind of control, but I have received some powerful messages while in an altered state. It is unlikely that a soul exchange would occur through channeling, but I am not limiting my beliefs to say that it could not happen.
Mid-life Crisis or Dark Night of the Soul
My walk-in occurred while I was in the darkest, saddest, and most upsetting time of my life. I was forty years old and experiencing several simultaneous emotionally challenging events when I lost the will to live. I just wanted to be free of the sorrow of Earth life and go home. Little did I know that these events set up the circumstances for the walk-in that my natal soul had agreed to prior to incarnation.
Not everyone who goes through a dark night of the soul or mid-life crisis will encounter a soul exchange, but many walk-outs/walk-ins have used times of distress as an exit/entry point. A suicide attempt offers an opportunity for a walk-in, but it also opens the body for other entities to enter. I have seen clients who were battling double (or multiple) occupancy by lower-vibrating beings. Once these are sent to the light, the person has better clarity and is able to live in a much more peaceful way.
