What happens when two souls are reincarnated in a single body?
That is the provocative question that Dr. Sankar Khan is attempting to answer.
“Some individuals are not truly one person, but two,” says Dr. Khan, who’s been conducting reincarnation studies in Mumbai, India, for the past 26 years.
According to Dr. Khna, a reincarnated soul enters its new body when the fetus is at an early stage of development.
“Usually a single soul enters the embryo – but sometimes two spirits, eager to be reborn, each elbow their way into the child.
“When this occurs, the body usually responds and the result is a splitting of the embryo into two, leading to the birth of twins.”
This explains why many identical twins, though raised in the same environment, are polar opposites in personality, he adds. In rare cases the two spirits develop a powerful bond and the flesh refuses to part completely, notes Dr. Khan. “This results in conjoined twins.”
And sometimes physical division fails to take place at all. “When the spirits are very different in nature this can lead to the tragic condition known as ‘multiple personality disorder,’” says the expert. “In these cases there are two radically different persons trapped in one body, taking turns controlling it – totally unaware of one another. In a few instances, more than a dozen souls end up crowded together in a chaotic jumble!”
Normally, however, two souls can co-exist harmoniously.
“Usually one spirit is dominant and the other remains dormant, asserting itself only in times of stress,” says Dr. Khan. “I estimate that this is the case of perhaps 1 in 10 people.
“A telltale sign of such individuals is their tendency to talk to themselves, as they consult their inner companion.”
Occasionally, the seams do show, he adds. “Typically, throughout their lives, double-souled individuals tend to be full of inner conflict.
“Again and again, they find themselves torn between two lovers, two career goals, two dreams of the future.
“Each of their souls pulls them in an opposite direction.”
Are you double-souled?
According to Dr. Khan, you are likely to be double-souled if you:
– Have difficulty making important decisions, swaying first in one direction, then the other.
– Talk to yourself often throughout the day.
– Are ambidextrous.
– Often find yourself in love with more than one person at the same time.
– Frequently “can’t believe” what you did the night before.
– Alternate between using your real name and a special nickname.
– Sometimes sign your name so differently that it is almost unrecognizable.
– Love a song one day and later, can’t stand it.
There ya have it – explains a lot for me. lol
When I was 14 years old and being a misfit in school, I went to a bookstore – one of the bookstores that most kids didn’t venture into. I was excited because it was different. There was incense and music and books you didn’t find in regular bookstores. It was thrilling. I still love going there. Anyway when I went into the store, an older woman was coming out. She looked right at me and said ” Find the man who is searching his roots. Find the man who is searching for wisdom.” I just stared at her. She moved past me, and before she could get out the door she said, “You have many things in common with this man. Don’t be afraid to try no matter how difficult.”
I never tried, but it happened. He’s in and out of my life now. The monster has a way of touring us all. In love two ships passing in the night. Our secret.
Same dream over and over since I was a little girl, and I can’t place what lifetime. Infuriating sometimes. I’m beginning to think it’s two memories from two past lives in one dream.
One I’m waiting on a dock. Sky is a bit overcast, then I get into a carriage and go home.
Next part of the dream I am waiting on a street – old cars going by and I’m almost about to cry. Then I’m in a jail cell and some asshole (that works there) slaps a newspaper up on the bars. I start to cry. I mean cry. I feel like my guts are wrenching. The dream ends.
I’m trying to do my best and work through this dream. I have for years but nothing is coming. I’m sure that due to so much emotion in the dream there is block somewhere. Maybe a safety mechanism so I won’t feel more hurt. Not sure. : le sigh:
