Can a person have two souls?

This is now the second time I’ve had to confront this question and I still don’t know the answer. Two people in my life had significant parts of themselves that didn’t feel like them. The more extreme of the examples is the person who feels like most of their life up to age 13 they spent watching their life from outside their body. As if they didn’t actually inhabit it until they were 13. The difference at 13 was that they were put on ritalin and went to a camp where he met the trees.

Now, I did find a reference to soul braiding, where two souls inhabit the same body, but that’s the only reference I found online. And it didn’t appear to fit him, he said. I found another reference from a man who said his spirit guides said that two souls couldn’t inhabit the same body because it violates the free will of the souls, which is impossible. I’m inclined to agree with him. I can’t imagine how two souls could coexist, and certainly not in a way that’s so destructive.

What does make more sense to me is that his soul was not grounded to his body. Therefore, much of his life was spent outside of his body. Bad things could happen because there wasn’t anyone ‘home’ protecting from outside influences. So manipulative people could take control of him without his being able to stop them.

The difference at 13 is the trees called to his soul, grounding it to earth. With the soul more firmly rooted to the body it could dispell the manipulative forces and stay in control. I don’t honestly know how the ritalin contributed, though it probably prevented astral episodes since it seems to shut down other metaphysical gifts.

So why would this be happening again? Perhaps it’s mismanaging of the new energy on earth. If someone is not taking time to align themselves they could be thrown so out of whack that they’re a mess. Perhaps he’s not following the path he needs to right now. I really don’t know. And even if I’m right about all of this, he’ll disagree anyway lol But if anyone knows, I’m all ears.

    I am working on a similar problem. I have a friend that has something either attached to him or around him and it fades into him and he becomes this other thing. I have consulted my guides and other friends and their guides and it still stumps me. However some insight into your problem.
    I have heard and it may not be true…but that before we choose our lives some people can or will make a deal with another soul to allow them to come with them as an observer to witness this life and can sometimes over step their bounds and start to leak into the main souls life. This i think, if there is a deal can trump the free will of the souls because it was a choice that was made. But once the secondary soul starts to get greedy it violates the agreement of passive observation.
    If you would like to talk more..feel free to email.
    Good Luck!

    That makes sense. Good luck with your friend. The only direct experience I have with that are negative entities and those had to be removed forceably. I would think that if you’re asking everyone and no one has ideas it may not be your puzzle to solve. It may simply be your friend’s to figure out on his own – as much as that sucks.

    Yes. A person was a rape victim and the trauma was such that they ‘left their body’ and for a long time had ‘someone else’ in control. It was a different spirit/soul self operating through their body until such time as they could cope and return. Suppose in the strict light of psychology/psychiatry, they would say it is ‘just’ a coping mechanism – ie. disassociating from the trauma, etc. Does not always explain the total change in personality, mental processes, etc… or why it all ‘goes back to normal’ when the switch happens again. Another ‘mystery of the Universe’ I suppose.

    Very important to understand that someone who has had a trauma does NOT have two souls. What they have done is to invent another, two-dimensional personality to come in and handle what is overwhelming to them. The person does not “leave their body” – they reside in the background. The “new” personality is not to be mis-construed as a three-dimensional soul, as it is not. It is akin to creating a superhero cartoon character to zoom in and defend and protect the traumatize part of the soul. It is called dissociative identity disorder (formerly multiple personality disorder). In psychology/psychiatry, the goal is to bring the dissociated parts back into an integrated whole. Some in the field advocate for “getting rid of” the other split parts of the personality, while others promote a more jungian “bring them all together under one CEO,” approach, using these personalities in service to the larger soul, if you will.
    It would be most helpful if you would not venture into professional fields with which you are unfamiliar and use them erroneously to answer questions like this.

    Well aware of what DIO is and what it theorized to be as I have been working with and around therapist, counselors, and other practitioners for a number of years now

    After many years of ‘processing’ with professionals, this person was found to NOT be suffering from DIO. The secondary ‘persona’ was not a cover nor a secondary defense mechanism… and because of the the testing and analysis done, the ‘experts’ were left scratching their heads since it did not fit neatly into the cubbyhole they wanted it to fit into.

    Try not to judge on a kneejerk basis please.

    There are also cases such as with Solomon where God places a host in the heart that can contain a second soul.
    This can only occur if both souls agree and God wills it.
    This results in the person becoming other than human.

    I was told I have two soul, and will love to find out, why and what to do with it, Can anyone explain ?

  8. butchjax Says:

    Who told you this? What makes you think you have two souls? What I’ve learned since I first wrote this is there’s a lot of misunderstanding over what is a soul and how this relates to the grand scheme of things. One person’s definition of soul is not the same as another’s.

  9. Cyndi Says:

    It could be soul fragmentation. Past life or current life trauma can break off pieces of the soul and when a person comes across that aspect or part of themself, if they are unaware, it can be a negative experience as they deal with old emotions.

    Hi. My partner died almost two months ago. I was wondering, can her soul occupy my body? I actually would really want this to happen and if her soul does occupy my body will I feel it or know it?

    Thanks very much.

  11. butchjax Says:

    Sorry for the late reply. You have my sympathy for your loss.

    Grief is a necessary process that allows us to see that we can live without our loved one. Your partner cannot occupy your body. It would hinder your growth and is certainly far from benevolent. However, their love is always with you. You will feel it if you allow yourself to.

    I recommend you read the book called Messages of Hope by Suzanne Giesemann. She writes about the death of her step-daughter and how it changed her life completely. I’ve written a review on this blog if you’d like to read it. It will help you.
