Avatars, Infinite and Transcendent Souls

A recent article on The Soul Channel weblog introduced the concept of a ‘walk-in’. A walk-in is essentially a high-minded entity who is permitted to take over the body of another human being who wishes to depart [the physical life journey]. Some spiritualists confuse the concept of a walk-in with an ‘avatar’ (the spirit kind, not the movie kind), but they are quite different.

In her book entitled Strangers Among Us, best-selling author Ruth Montgomery introduces the avatar concept. She describes an avatar as “a superior or perfected soul who returns for a time and then withdraws to the spirit realm, coming and going into physical being at will, but no always wearing the physical body itself. By contrast, those who wish to become Walk-ins have to stay until that life is terminated through normal means, with the body dying.” Some avatars were walk-ins in previous physical incarnations.

NASA — Relative Size

Consistent with The Soul Channel’s efforts to provide inspirational concepts and information, we have added this NASA link to the Inspirational Web Links at the footer of each page. This amazing NASA link was created by Cary and Michael Huang. It is scalable using either the mouse or the horizontal scroll bar, allowing the user to zoom in or zoom out to compare the relative size of the known and estimated physical universe beginning from extremely small subatomic matter (1x10E-35 m) to the projected size of our universe (1x10E27 m), an incredible 62 orders of magnitude. Every teacher on the planet should have this link in order to share it with their students.

It is important to remember that scientists and spiritualists estimate that this is but one physical universe; others may exist and even other dimensions. If we assume that only 7 universes exist of comparable average size, and if we further assume that each has 7 dimensions, then the combined size is at least 49 times the size of NASA’s scalable projection for our universe. If we sum these individually and eliminate any ‘empty’ space among these universes and dimensions, we arrive at 3038 orders of magnitude, which is far beyond the comprehension of human beings.

All of this and more is contained within, and sustained by, that which religions and spiritualists refer to as the the divine Creator, which is but part of why we refer to God as transcendent (beyond comprehension). That makes it all the more amazing that soul mates are ever able to find one another. May we suggest that you always treat your soul mates with loving care.

Walk-Ins

The concept of a ‘walk-in’ was first mentioned on The Soul Channel on August 8, 2011, in an article entitled “Automatic Writing — Part 2“. The article included the following brief introduction:

“For several decades, the famous author Ruth Montgomery was able to connect with an entity (soul or guide) on the Soul Side which identified itself as Lily. Although originally very skeptical, Ruth became quite comfortable over time with the information channeled from Lily as having a high degree of accuracy in terms of the information which was able to be verified in the physical world (e.g., people, places, dates, events, predictions, etc.). As a result, her automatic writing became the source of many successful books on spirituality. (On a personal level, my complete collection of Ruth Montgomery’s books are among my favorite reading and reference books.)”

Ruth Montgomery first introduced the concept of ‘walk-ins’ in her book Strangers Among Us. Roughly half of this book is dedicated to a comprehensive discussion of walk-ins. Roughly half of her 1979 book is dedicated to a comprehensive discussion of walk-ins. At that time, she estimated that there were tens of thousands of walk-ins on the planet; how many more are here now some 30 years later? More importantly, why should this interest us? And just exactly what is a walk-in?

Soul Groups and Soul Mates

In January 2012, I posted an article entitled “What is the Soul”. The article concludes:

“…that which survives the physical life of a human being is the spiritual aspect and is referred to as the ‘soul’. And stepping backwards, any aspect of a human which existed before conception is also part of that same spirit or soul. Thus we recognize that the soul is that aspect of each of us which survives physical death and continues to live on into eternity.”

A reasonable question might then be: “Do we have any friends or ‘family’ on the Soul Side? Will that aspect of our personality that lived before conception and which will continue to live into eternity live with others we have known before?”

The simple answer is ‘yes’; we refer to that soul family as our ‘soul group’, and our soul friends are commonly referred to as our ‘soul mates’. Yet that is a very simple answer indeed, for there are many competing perspectives on soul groups and soul mates. In the next few articles (posts) we discuss these concepts from multiple perspectives and in the following articles, some of which are still under development:

 

Caution: Soul Mate Ahead – Book and Concept Review

Any examination of the concept of ‘soul mates’ must surely include a very important book entitled Caution Soul Mate Ahead! by Janet Cunningham, PhD, and Michael Ranucci. While most of the world’s spiritual believers are searching for or yearning for that one special someone they consider as their soul mate, that journey often fails to recognize the true nature of soul mates. In fact, the title of Dr. Cunningham’s book introduces a critical warning about soul mates: “Caution…”.

There are more than 18 million references to soul mates on the internet, including more than one million individual pages, posts and articles. Within these discussions, different terms are assigned for soul mates, such as teacher soul mates, romantic soul mates, twin flames, essence twins, companion soul mates, task companions, sharing soul mates, constant soul mates, karmic soul mates, and so forth. Many of these are shades of the same generic type, helping us to categorize some of the more subtle variations among souls.

For the purposes of this article, we will examine the four general types or categories of soul mates identified by Cunningham and Ranucci in their book and which exemplify the use of the term “Caution” in the title of this important book. Here are the four categories: Read More…

Twin Souls and Twin Flames

Do you know the difference between soul mates and twin souls? Both types of souls are discussed in other articles on The Soul Channel, including the recent article on Janet Cunningham’s book, Caution Soul Mate Ahead!. Soul mates are typically the members of your soul group. In general, all of the soul mates from any soul group tend to work on the same general life theme (love, anger, fear, control, war, disease, genocide, technological development, advances in medicine, etc.).

God does not send you into the physical world alone; there are always at least several members of your soul group in the world at the same time and who you will interact with at different times in your life. These may be one or more parents or siblings (rarely all of them are in the same soul group); special friends or even enemies; marital partners or significant other relationships; one or more of your children. Each of these members of your soul group, including others still on the Soul Side, are referred to as ‘soul mates’.  Read More…
