About the time I was finishing my book about walk-ins and soul exchanges, a friend that I had known since my church days in Indiana contacted me on Facebook. We had not been in touch for seven years. I had changed a lot since the last time we had seen one another, but there was also something different about Mary and her vibration. She was happy and excited even though she had just ended a meaningful relationship a few months prior.
As we were talking, I began to feel an overload of energy, and my head started pounding. This is common for me when I am submersed in intense energy for several hours; however, we had only been together for twenty or so minutes. I laid my head on the table and stabilized my energy field as she began to tell me about an experience she had had two weeks prior.
She was asleep in bed when she began to feel an intense presence walk into the room and move toward her. She looked over her shoulder to see if someone was there, but she saw nothing unusual. The next thing she knew she was pinned down and could not move or speak. Her initial reaction was fear, and she remembered the King James Bible stating that people were “sore afraid” when visited angels. She assumed this was an angel, and while she wasn’t exactly panicking, she did feel uneasy that she could smother while unable to lift her head from the pillow. She surrendered to whatever was happening and trusted that if she did die, her soul would be fine.
Once she was able to move, she felt strangely different. Her intuition was keener, and she started seeing people in visions before seeing them in person; she now hears her internal guidance very clearly, and synchronicities have become a daily experience. She also acquired an urge to start connecting with the local spiritual community.
During my (Yvonne Perry’s) soul exchange in 1999 I was pinned to the floor for about ten minutes. I could not get up–it was like what some call sleep paralysis in which you are being pinned down in your sleep, only I was awake. I could hear my daughter and my husband speaking to me but I could not answer them.
Mary had never heard of a walk-in, but when I told her about my experience, it resonated with her. She had a strong sensation that a soul shift or walk-in had occurred for her. Having that information brought peace because it helped her know that she wasn’t crazy since many everyday people are having strange experiences like hers. Mary says she feels more alive, whole, and hopeful than ever in her life!
