Ever seen the movie "skeleton key"?

The Self is merely the totality of what you are. It is the "image", so to speak, that your ego relates with.

When one looks into a mirror, he is in a way relating to the concept of his higher self. The mirror reflects, both physically, and through the law of sympathy, metaphysically aswell. Thus, theoretically, if you ever wanted to "exchange" selves, it would probably involve a Mirror.

The person who seeks to live through another body would stand behind the mirror and project himself astrally into the mirror. Sort of creating an identification of the self with the mirror. The person looking into the mirror would have to be put into a state of intense fear, panic and anxiety, in order for the proper energies involved - demons - to facillitate the disassociation of self with ego, and "magically", through the medium of the mirror, the two people awake in different bodies.

Sounds completely insane eh?? Yet Hollywood made a movie on it. And according to normal occult assumptions this sounds theoretically feasible.

Although the Karmic effects would probably horrendous.

While one might maintain a temporary residence the body is attuned to its own biofield signature. It could not reject that signature without destroying its very harmonic makeup. The purpose of the body swap is supposedly to change identities gain more years. The rogue soul would be pushed out should the true soul ever wish to occupy the bio-mechanism (BODY)

Interesting.....Well, in the movie, the old woman who does the voodoo puts a spell on the person she displaces, causing that person to become catatonic...

The explanation you just gave provides a reasoning for why the voodoo woman cast that spell...

I'm already in the mirror.
In fact I'm in every mirror.

I thought everyone was ?

Yes I've seen the movie and it is very well done, with Kate Hudson as the unsuspecting caregiver. STAR

The "spells" used in many majic practices are intention based The movie touches on the necessity of belief for it to affect. The reason belief is necessary is that this.

Intention is projected. Person accepts the projected reality. That reality gains power within the biofield as it has become an accepted norm. As long as that person continues to believe that persons intention has the right to influence their biofield they offer invitation. No one persons higher self can overcome anothers higher self as all higherselves are in fact connected to the same one all permeating matrix of intelligence giving us all the potential to connect and access information and energy. The trick or deception is convincing another that they have no power when in fact the only one that can take ones power is the selfs ego delusion believing the deception.

"The Self" is not a permanent phenomena, thus there is nothing that can be defined as a "Self". The "totality" is made up of aggregates, or parts, that are ever changing, so it is impossible to definitively label it as anything. It seems it is a misconception of many people to relate this word, "Self", as something to identify with, egoically/personally, which is why the Buddha never acknowledged this Hindu idea as true.

Peace.

Its more like an imprecise essence. But it can be seen to exist, since where do all these experiences constellate?

Everyone has a different self, since every ego relates to its own self.

While I respect Buddhas ideas of abandonment of the self to attain a certain level of being other spiritually evolved beings may choose to maintain their self construct for focusing purposes. Shamen create a War album of memorable events (REf Carlos Castonedas work) This album consists of the events of ones life their essence which can be used to hold the self in coherence after leaving the body. Many OBE practitioners maintain a self construct during travels of late however it is this writers belief that they in some way are still drawing coherence from their physical state.

In concluding one may simply choose to be the whole universe however this does not do much for focal ability and coherence which are necessary for intention based creation. At the end of this journey we find it comes down to choice. It always has been. It is this authors opinion that every single life form on this planet chose to be. It will be that same choice process which will determine coherence after we shed this form or abandonment to infinity and all its possibilities.
