A walk-in is a New Age concept of a person whose original soul has departed their body toàn thân and has been replaced with a new, different, soul.[1][2][3][4][5] Ruth Montgomery popularized the concept in her 1979 book Strangers Among Us.[1][2][3][4][5]


Believers maintain that it is possible for the original soul of a human to lớn leave a person's body toàn thân and for another soul to lớn "walk in". In Montgomery's work, souls are said to lớn "walk in" during a period of intense personal problems on the part of the departing soul, or during or because of an accident or trauma. Some other walk-ins describe their entry as occurring based on prior agreement and when the previous soul was complete. The walk-in being/individual retains the memories of the original personality, but does not have emotions associated with the memories. As they integrate, they bring their own mental, emotional, spiritual consciousness and evolve the life to lớn resonate with their purpose and intentions. Incarnating into a fully grown body toàn thân allows the walk-in soul to lớn engage in embodiment without having to lớn go through the two decades of maturation that humans need to lớn reach adulthood. A walk-in soul also does not experience the conditioning of childhood and has a different relationship to lớn life because they were not born.[6][1][5]

In popular culture[edit]

The 1941 film Here Comes Mr. Jordan and the 1978 remake Heaven Can Wait portrays one soul replacing a recently deceased man's soul and reviving to lớn inhabit his body toàn thân.

The Hawkgirl comics, the K-PAX series of books and film, and the Twilight Zone episode "The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank" have all featured situations similar or identical to lớn walk-in experiences, although the term "walk-in" is not used.

In the Death of Superman story cycle, a handful of new superheroes appeared, among them John Henry Irons, who called himself the "Man of Steel". He never claimed to lớn be the real Superman, but Lois Lane speculated that if Superman were really dead, perhaps his soul had moved into Irons' body toàn thân as a walk-in, and she used that word.[7]

The X-Files episode "Red Museum" discusses walk-ins, described by Mulder as enlightened spirits who have taken possession of the bodies of people who have lost hope and who want to lớn leave their life. The concept is returned to lớn in the episodes "Sein Und Zeit" and "Closure".

In the TV series Ghost Whisperer, the season 4 episode "Threshold" used the term "step-in" when the soul of one of the series' main characters, who had died in the previous episode, enters the body toàn thân of a man who dies in an unrelated accident.

Stephen King speaks of "walk-ins" several times in books 6 and 7 of The Dark Tower novels, but King's walk-ins are usually physical travellers, or - when they possess another's body toàn thân - are more guests, sharing the body toàn thân with the original mind as strangers. John Callum mentions them in The Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah. The term is also used in the CODA section of this book. In The Talisman, cowritten by King, the concept of "Twinners" is presented in a similar manner: Twinners are separate but fundamentally similar individuals that live parallel existences on Earth and in the world of the Territories. If either or both of the pair gain awareness of their Twinner, they can learn to lớn occupy the other's body toàn thân in their respective worlds in style of a walk-in.

The main character Myne in Ascendance of a Bookworm is a walk-in. Originally a light novel, the story was released in anime format October 2019.

"I knew all along that Superman would return, and now he has. Not necessarily in the size people might have expected, but it was him. Listen, have you ever heard of a walk-in spirit? When a body toàn thân has been abandoned by one spirit but is not yet uninhabitable, then another spirit can move in. Anyway, whatever he is, the cards tell má for sure that the man who saved má today is definitely the Man of Steel. For sure."
