Spiritual Walk-ins: Learn what it is and FAQ


  • Suddenly, you don’t fit into your environment?
  • Wondering: “What planet am I from?” or
  • Wondering of friends or family, “What planet are THEY from?”
  • Sudden changes in your taste, clothing, habits, friends or relationships?
  • A deep desire to dramatically change jobs for service to humanity?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be a Walk-In. or – maybe someone you know (and love) is a walk-in. See below for more information on Walk-ins.


When two individual souls have agreed to switch places this is often referred to as a “walk-in.” The first soul (the walk-out) has either completed their task or development, or has suffered a traumatic experience and is ready to move on. The second soul (the walk-in) serves, often, in a completely different capacity. Also called a “soul transformation.”

On March 23, 2019 in Ashville, NC, Kryon (channeled by Lee Carroll) gave this message about Walk-Ins and Near Death Experiences. You can read the transcript of Kryon’s Channeling and his message to Marilyn here.


Author Ruth Montgomery was one of the first to coin the phrase “Walk-In” in her book, Strangers Among Us. Since then, Walk-Ins have been awakening all over the world. Interesting phenomena, both the Walk-out and the Walk-in agree to the arrangement. The Soul Exchange may have been agreed upon before the soul enters (or is born), or it may be an agreement that is more recently ‘contracted.’ It’s not as “scary” as it sounds. It’s not possession; it’s simply a transformational switch. Some even call this “soul transformation”. It happens on a subconscious level, and most of the time the souls are not even aware that the transformation has taken place.


Suddenly, you feel totally different. You may not even recognize all the people around you. You may also experience lapses of memory from the walk-out or previous occupant. Also, you may not instantly understand why everything is different or why the transformation has taken place. The actual exchange often will occur due to a car accident, operation, traumatic event, or a very long illness and can be a shock to your physical body. You may feel somewhat estranged from some people around you. Typically, the memories of your body’s past history are retained in your cells, although sometimes, it may take a minute to recall them. After all, you are a totally different being.
The other soul continues on its journey, either to be together with a loved one or be sent to another place to continue learning. They will at this point in time not be back here in this body. Although, we have now seen evidence that sometimes the Walk-Out, returns to the Walk-in and merges together in the same physical form to complete a unified mission that requires both walk-out and walk-in skills.
In the 1990’s, Liz Nelson founded Walk-ins International and held bi-annual conferences throughout the country until 2002. They’ve not been as active since Liz has past over. Marilyn Harper had attended several of those conferences at that time and received tremendous support for her own walk-in transformation. These events and people helped awaken her to her new spiritual gifts and skills. Now, several walk-ins, including us, have received guidance that it is time to gather again to now help with the Shift. This is the reason the Walk-in Conference is being held.
As you may know the planet is shifting into the fifth dimension. Walk-ins are considered earth Angels of Change. As walk-ins, we are focusing the energy in assisting with the shift so the transition is processed with ease and grace. Oh! And, by the way. We no longer call this a walk-in conference. We now call it a Visionaries of Light Convergence. That’s because it’s really not about being a walk-in. Or even transformation. It’s really about – what are you doing now to serve your purpose on the planet. AND – THAT’s what our VISIONARIES IN LIGHT CONVERGENCE is all about.



Interest in the “walk-in” phenomenon was initially stimulated in the 1970s by the popular “Seth Speaks” series of occult books written by channel Jane Roberts, as reputedly authored by her various “spirit-world” benefactors. In 1979, Ruth Montgomery contributed to the fascination with Strangers Among Us, a collection of accounts of walk-ins. She included prominent historical figures among her subjects, such as Thomas Jefferson as having hosted walk-in spirits who actually wrote the Declaration of Independence. Subsequently, a belief system grew up around the walk-in. It included New Age attributes such as the concept of ascending into higher frequencies of evolution, a variety of psi powers, traditional “predictions regarding Earth Changes” first cited in the Bible (Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation) but popularized by Edgar Cayce, and predictions of dire fates for those whose vibrational levels remain unraised. In the late 1980s and early 1990s a channelling team known as “Savizar and Silarra” (Extraterrestrial Earth Mission), emphasised their walk-in status, claiming successive walk-in experiences together with corresponding name changes. The New Age walk-in belief system now includes a number of variant experiences such as channeling, telepathy contact with extraterrestrial intelligences, or soul merging, where the original soul is said to remain present, coexisting or integrating with the new one. As of 2006, an increasing number of people claim some type of walk-in experience. Walk-ins were featured on the June 4, 1999 segment of the Unsolved Mysteries television series. According to information presented on this programme, there are walk-in conventions, one of them drawing approximately 500 people.

Excerpts from Joshua David Stone books

“Walk Ins — Walk-ins are soul extensions, or personalities, who take over the body of an adult human being who has chosen to leave his or her physical body. Some believe that this is an occurrence that has not been very common in the history of this planet. However, it has been occurring much more frequently recently because of the amazing shift this planet is going through as it moves into the new age. It is also believed that there are at least one million Walk-Ins on the planet at this time.” We want you to know that this isn’t a helter skelter exchange. It is not something that simply happens when someone wants to check out and some other soul floating about in the Universe says, “Hey, there is a good body, let’s go there.” Instead, it is am important process that is usually governed by and controlled at the soul level. The soul extension, or personality, who is walking out of the body usually has no conscious awareness of the procedure. It is usually the soul who has made the decision, although in some rare instances the personality has requested it. “In the most cases the new walk-in who enters the body has no conscious awareness of the change, either. Therefore, the transition period can take anywhere from three months to six years to transpire. It is usually very disconcerting to the walk-out’s emotional body because there is a process of sharing the physical body with the other energy for a period of time, and, in most cases, the walk-out or the walk-in is not consciously aware of what is occurring. The walk-in will come into the new physical body only, of course, if the walk-out has agreed to it on a soul level. In other words, there is an actual agreement between the two souls involved and one voluntarily leaves and goes for re-training, to the afterlife or someplace else agreed upon and the new soul enters and attempts to continue where the walk-out left off. The second important ingredient is that the souls, or higher selves, and the spirit guides of the walk-in and the walk-out feel that the physical vehicles is strong enough and the emotional vehicle stable enough for the process to work effectively. Such a transfer is very much like a major surgery on an etheric level. Teams of spirit guides help in the transfer. It is a very delicate procedure. The concept of a walk-in is sometimes hard for people to believe. If you think about it, everyone is a walk-in in the sense that everyone walk into a baby’s body. The only difference is that the walk-in moves into an adult body rather than an infant body.” Believe me, we could go on and on about different experiences about Walk-ins, how it happens, why it happens, and then what happens once a person realizes they are a walk-in. THEN we get to deal with the whole family and friends issues. Is the walk-in still your mother, father, brother, sister, child, best friend and more. You get the idea. That is why WE feel it is important to provide support for family and friends of Walk-Ins as well as the Walk-In themselves.

    Hello everyone, it’s my first visit at this site, and paragraph is really
    fruitful in support of me, keep up posting such articles or reviews.

  7. Marilyn Harper says:

    I am not sure what you mean, but the name of my walk-in? If you are asking if your walk-in could be a celebrity it depends upon the definition of celebrity. Are they living or dead? Usually, according to Kryon, a walk-in is your own Soul several generations in the future.

  8. Jacquline Musgrave says:

    I experienced a terrifying experience in which something entered my body and my soul ran from it downward if that makes sense and it screamed at me in a revolting computer synthesized sounding screech of foreign tongue. I have no idea what it said, but I my soul called out for our Creator, and that thing was forced out through the top of my head. I lay contorted on my bed, petrified. Appalled. I experienced sleep paralysis after this, and only when I became more spiritual did it lessen and finally cease. I am of sound body and mind, and this only ever happened once to me. I was 18 at the time, and I am 48 now. I didn’t know that other beings had access to the inside of our bodies at the time, and I was absolutely terrified. I did not have an agreement with anything and did not welcome this. Have you heard of this before? Was my experience a “Walk-in”?

  9. Marilyn Harper says:

    A requested Walk-In is quite unusual. It can happen. There is a book about it called The Third Alternative. It sounds like she might need some balancing work and see how that can help.
    Blessings, Marilyn

  10. Andrea says:

    I have an adult child who has been diagnosed with bipolar, ADD, and/or PTSD. She also has severe anxiety and depression. Bipolar meds do not work (makes us think she has PTSD, but doctor\’s seem to have different opinions). She has attempted suicide several times. I\’ve been aware of walking for decades now, although I don\’t know any personally. Is it ethical for me to bring this topic up to my daughter? I see her constant anguish. She wants to live, thrive in life, but nothing seems to help her. I don\’t want to lose my daughter whether by suicide or by walking, as she has a bright light, full of laughter when she is in a more balanced emotional state, but these are becoming fewer and farther between. I just don\’t know if I should mention this to her, that she does have a way out without suicide. But what would happen with the walk-in? Could they even cope?

  12. Marilyn Harper says:

    No you do not have to attempt suicide first. Remember intention is the key. Many times now, we have seen “Composites.” This is a process where your Higher Self merges with your regular self for the process of enlightenment.

  13. Jack says:

    How can I offer my body to a walk in spirit? I have bipolar depression and am no longer interested in life. This is not a cry for help and I have made up my mind to leave earth. I would prefer to not have the trauma of suicide left on my wife and my family. I would like to offer my life to be of service to humanity. I would prefer that my body be utilized to do good but I believe that my brain has been too badly damaged to tackle these things. Do I have to attempt suicide first before a walk in will come in? How does this work?

  14. Marilyn Harper says:

    Hello Trish,
    It certainly sounds like you may have had a Walk-in experience. Many times they are not quite so dramatic, but it can happen in any way needed. A walk-in usually comes in with a burning desire to help others. It sounds like that happened. We are putting up a series of recordings we made several years ago that will help. The Walk-In Phenomenon is quite unusual and all cases are different. I will be happy to help Feel free to email me. Blessings Marilyn

  15. Marilyn Harper says:

    Hello! I wish I could identify your connection, however I have met hundreds possibly thousands of walk-in’s through the years. Most I am not sure what part of the world they might still live in. You might do a google search with Appalachian mouintains walk-ins and see what comes up. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. Blessings Marilyn

  16. Sonia Bianca says:

    Hello, when I was 16, about 20 years ago I met a walk-in at a New Age gathering in the Appalachian mountains. Her spirit guides had led her on a 3 or 4 hour drive to attend this gathering. As it turned out she was meant to be there so she could do energy work on ME. She channeled energy through my chakras, and I actually felt and saw the vibrational energies. She also did some toning and used some kind of acupressure on my skull as she toned. I asked her why she was doing this but all she said was that I would understand everything due course of time. I suspect it may have something to do with the magnetic field of Earth/polarities and possible pole shift. My question to you is if you know this woman. I don’t even remember her name, but in 1996 she was in her mid to late 30’s, dark hair, small frame and a very powerful healer.

  17. Trish says:


    I wanted to figure out what happened to me after a prolonged self development event which was 6 days long. Exhausting hours and little sleep. The next day I passed out and was taken to the hospital because I was in and out of consciousnesses and kept asking “where am I?” and ” I am so confused”. After recalling it hours later I could hear most everything that was going on but I could not respond, I was numb and felt very heavy
    They thought I was having a stroke but all tests were negative and now all I have is a cold. I feel different and it seems like I am looking through someone elses eyes. I am at peace and very calm, I even helped a perfect stranger the next day traveling home to have a revelation about his life! We both cried together and he thanked me deeply for helping him. I have never been able to do that and I really liked it! can I get some idea of what happened?

    Thank you

  18. Susie D.M. says:

    I too am a braided soul walk-in. It’s been a complex weave of integration, acceptance, and awareness. This unfoldment has led to gifts that I am now using. Interesting this life we lead.

  19. Devere says:

    Hi everyone! Wow, this is interesting. Last year I went through some very difficult changes, and very high anxiety that about made me crazy. I was not sure if I was going to make it or not, it was bad. Little by little I noticed I could start to rebalance my off scale energy. The last few days, I realize something very significant happened to me that I had not expected. Is there someone on your team I could talk to about this more? I feel this is very important for me to figure out as quickly as I can. Thank you! Survivor in Colorado.

  20. A friend says:

    Thank you for posting about Walk-Ins. I guess yesterday the universe decided to break it to me that my friend of many years decided to to leave this plane and let someone else carry on for her.
    She started acting different to me in January, her vibe was acting up and suddenly she was acting more and more of a stranger to me until we had virtually no contact. We reconnected in March, to find her severely depressed and suicidal. Two weeks later, she attempted suicide. She survived, but something was off about her. She was changed. She suddenly moved out of her parents’ and in a kind family friend’s, changed her last and middle name, had a different sense of humor, got new ear piercings, her life passion’ studies didn’t interested her anymore, and her vibe was like a stranger’s, but a stranger I’ve known for six years. Last time I spent time with her, she was excitedly talking about lighting a fire when she always had a phobia of fire.
    So it hit me yesterday that, well, she didn’t make it out of that suicide attempt after all.
    So yeah, thank you for sharing, it’s very insightful. I’m hoping I can assist the kind soul who accepted to switch in any way I can.

  21. Marilyn Harper says:

    Hi Aniijea,

    Blessings to surround you. The world is in a state of transformation right now. That includes you. You may be in a place of mourning if you have indeed walked-in and are subconsciously mourning your walk-out. You can be and are free of your traumatic past. Breathe into the present.

    Blessings in love, Marilyn

  22. Marilyn Harper says:

    Hi Paul,
    Yes, the walk-in process can certainly be a bit disconcerting. I can’t say off hand if you have accomplished your purpose. My question to you is, “What else would you like to do?” It is my understanding that a part of your purpose is to find your Joy and then live that joy. I would try and help if I can. Blessings in love, Marilyn

  23. Marilyn Harper says:

    What that means is I am trying to catch up with the comments. Things have changed on the back end of our website and I no longer get notices. Now I am realizing that people ARE talking with me. LOL I hope I can scroll down enough to find your original comment.
    Blessings in love, Marilyn

  24. Paul says:

    I know I’ve been a walk in since April 1988. I would love to know if I have accomplished my purpose in an extremely dysfunction al situation since then. Many things about my personality have changed but I am still left unsure about my goals.

  25. Aniijea Skiter Sintel Intien says:

    I am feeling a change. I don’t know if I am a walk in yet but I feel like I am a big wonder. Everything is feeling like its going to be a place of mourning and I am feeling like I will be free from the traumatic past I have encountered. Bless this site. Amen

  26. Joeaux Robey says:

    HI Vincent – I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, we’ve been traveling and our Internet is sporadic. Of course, the 2/22 has passed but when you subscribe to the Double Digit you get access to ALL of the past recordings. We have a webcast tonight 3/3 if you’d like to join us. Here’s information on subscribing (or just joining for this one session). Thanks so much!

  27. Vincent says:

    I have followed KRYON for about eight years. The channeling with KRYON in Egypt in the temple of Isis was a very big yes for me. Because I finally understood the meaning of unconditional love! I would like to join the double digit session on 22nd February but not sure how to register for it. I live in Somerset, England. Thanks.

  28. Sheila Tillich says:

    Hi Marilyn and Joeaux. My name is Sheila. I know I’m a walk-in. I also know I’m to join this community of double digits. I would like to be of service. Please advise…. Love, Sheila

  29. Karen Kido says:

    Fascinating stuff. I have read most of the aforementioned books that have helped me to understand the spiritual evolution on this planet. Humanity’s ever present violence, war, racism, pollution and political turmoil… will walk in spirits help to bring peace so we can “get it” and move to the next level for the sake of Gaia and us?

  30. Lindi says:

    I have recently been told that I am a “Walk-In”. I am in my 60’s and it supposedly happened when I was a teenager. Is there anyway I can know for sure that this happened? I have absolutely no memory of this.
