Walk-in souls are souls who choose to incarnate into an established body rather than a newborn infant. Theses souls take on the personality of a life already in existence. A walk-in birthing happens when there is a contractual agreement between two souls
to swap places. One soul exits from the human body and re-enters the spiritual realm. The second soul walks into the physical body and takes over the current life midstream. This transition can take place immediately, OR sometimes the souls will share the body over a period of time. This allows the soul that wishes to depart to stick around for a short while to offer the new soul an introduction or cram-session about the life it is about to take over.
