Contemplating my entry into this incarnation, from where I am now, I am able to formulate various scenarios regarding it.
• At the moment of my conception, my soul knew of the difficulties my mother would experience while giving birth to her child and therefore chose to be born to my parents in a damaged physical body.
• The forceps slipping during my delivery was an unforeseen accident,as was the subsequent struggle for life of the child. During this struggle, my present soul took over from the soul which had originally chosen my parents to fulfill its karmic requirements.
• However it was organized at birth, the result is I AM HERE NOW. My soul has experienced much during the seventy-one years it has inhabited this damaged body on its way to fulfilling the contract it made with spirit prior to incarnation.

My gut feeling is I am a ‘walk in.’ When the soul, which had chosen my parents as its vehicle to incarnate through, found the physical body had been damaged due to an accident it returned to the Soul Pool. When the soul left the damaged body and the baby was dying, my soul, which was waiting in the Soul Pool for an appropriate vehicle to incarnate into, ‘walked in.’ This is one explanation for the lack of feeding and lethargy during the first few days of my life.”
