Can a Body be a Container for More than One Soul?

rather

If it's filled by half...is it half full or half empty?

Yes. Ruth Rendely, the founder of the Seraphim Blueprint, knows about multiple souls in one body. You can find her on youtube or in Australia. People need not have MPD to have multiple souls. Usually, those with multiple souls have trouble making decisions in their lives. Each soul takes turns every few years taking "charge" while the others remain as passengers.

Have you heard of the film “The Three Faces of Eve”?

It is a film based on a true story made in 1957 about a woman called Chris Sizemore, who suffered from multiple personality disorder. She first had two personalities. But while she was undergoing therapy a third personality immerged. Eventually the first two personalities cease to exist, leaving just one personality.
      My Grandfather believed her body contained three souls, and the stronger of the souls won possession of her body. The discussion in this topic connecting multiple personality disorder and the question, can a body be the container for more than one soul, reminded me of this film. Below I have inserted a link to an original film of Chris Sizemore, and a quote from Wikipedia, telling her story.



History

“The Three Faces of Eve is a 1957 American film adaptation of a case study by Corbett H. Thigpen and Hervey M. Cleckley. It was based on the true story of Chris Costner Sizemore, also known as Eve White, a woman who suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) formerly known as multiple personality disorder. Sizemore's identity was concealed in interviews and this film, and was not revealed to the public until 1975.
Joanne Woodward won the Academy Award for Best Actress, making her the first actor to win an acting award at Oscar for a triple different persons (Eve White, Eve Black and Jane). The Three Faces of Eve also became the first film to win the Best Actress award without getting nominated in another category, and the last for nearly 31 years until Jodie Foster won the award for The Accused, the film's sole nomination. (Quote from Wikipedia)”
 
Story line from the film
 
“Eve White is a timid, self-effacing wife and mother who has severe and blinding headaches and occasional blackouts. Eventually she is sent to see a personality psychiatrist Dr. Luther, and while under hypnosis her "alter personality", wild, fun-loving Eve Black, discloses herself. Eve Black knows everything about Eve White, but Eve White is unaware of Eve Black. With Eve Black on the loose, Eve White's husband leaves her and abandons their daughter, Bonnie. Eve White is sent to an asylum after Eve Black tries to kill Eve White's daughter.
Dr. Luther considers both Eve White and Eve Black to be incomplete and inadequate personalities. Most of the film depicts Luther's attempts to understand and deal with these two faces of Eve. He eventually prompts her to remember a traumatic event in Eve’s childhood. Her beloved grandmother had died when she was six, and according to family custom relatives were supposed to kiss the dead person at the viewing, making it easier for them to let go. Eve's grief and terror led to her "splitting off" into two distinctly different personalities.
Under continued therapy, a third personality appears, the relatively stable Jane. After discovering the cause of her disorder, Jane is gradually able to remember everything that has ever happened to all three personalities. When Luther asks to speak with Eve White, they discover that Eve White and Eve Black no longer exist. All three personalities are once again a single whole. She marries a man named Earl whom she met when she was Jane and reunites with her daughter Bonnie. (Quote from Wikipedia)”

I've heard of the movie The Three Faces of Eve, but I've never seen it. I do remember reading a book as a teen called Sybil. Sybil had 16 personalities. I don't recall a lot, but remember it being quite a read. I'd read it again if I came across it. Very interesting stuff.

It's not, "Can the body be a container for more than one soul" that you should be asking grasshopper, but
"can two souls become one to create one container?"

Sorry to bump but I think somehow me and Nachtuchen are related spiritually somehow.
My name is Corey btw and I got here by wondering if the personality changes I feel from time to time (always) had to do with mean sharing my body with a soul (there was a miscarriage and stillbirth before my d.o.b, two twin girls and one boy) and so maybe I could suppress this soul so I can be more decisive about a I want out of life.
The post by Nachtuche seems like it was written bya 23 year old me.
 
Anyway I'm not saying me and this dude are the same. I have no idea who Anita is, but I did use to  have these  reoccuring Car falling off a dam dream and in the last one, I remember there being someone else in the last version of thinks dream but I always associated having them because I didn't know how to swim and the Chattanooga dam is also a swimming spot.
 
Anyway, I'm nit exactly new to researching matters. Lately it's been an obsession. From Buddhism to Kaballah to that mysterious force in How to Think and Grow Rich, to my own life experiences, we seem to live in a world where we don't understand at all.

It would be weird to have two souls in one body that consists of saint's and killers.

hi, I realize this is an old post, but I want to throw in my 2 cents worth! I hope no one is offended by some bible stuff?


I want to say three things. 1) before we can have a discussion, I think it would be good to define our terms. 2) What science/doctors say about this, and 3) what I think the bible says about this subject.


1) the meaning of the word "soul" seems to have changed over time. In the NT,  book of 1 Thessalonians 5:30, it talks about the spirit, soul, and body. but if we look at the Strong's definition for that word, it says "heart". Spirit, heart, and body. Also, if we look  at Genesis we can see the the soul is the body. So it makes no sense to say spirit, soul, and body. That's like saying spirit, body, and body.


In Genesis when Adam was created it says God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and Adam became a living soul. If Adam was to die right then, what would he be? a dead soul, right? what would be dead? the body. Later in Genesis, it says that Abraham came from some city and brought with him 60 souls. 60 ghosts? No. 60 living people.  In the first part of the OT, the soul refers to the body. I think there is a mistranslation going on (deliberate or not, I don't know) and I think it really brings a whole new dimension to the idea, "did you sell your soul to the devil?" So technically, we don't have an inner part named soul. We have a spirit, a soul (aka body), a heart. According to Ecclesiastics our spirit is a gift from God. It animates the soul. And when we die the spirit returns to God who made it. All other parts of us, if the doctors are correct, are DNA based.  personality and everything.


2) the doctors also say that we are conceived as twins. (or perhaps multiples). In the first few weeks of conception, they can't determine the gender as there is a fierce hormonal "battle" going on between testosterone and estrogen. The other baby is absorbed into the one who "survives".  That means that every bit of DNA--our dreams, our inherited skills and talents, our personalities, etc--are absorbed into person. Therefore we are two-souled people, though perhaps with the appearance of having only 1 body, and yet, (at least) two personalities.


3) This section is in part straight bible, and some of it is my theory. The bible says that in the beginning he made THEM [emphasis mine] male and female. He made THEM (plural). each separate entity was male AND female.  Let's think about the Amazons for a moment. The word means A (without) mazos (breasts). "They" say that the Amazon woman will sometimes burn off or remove a breast so they can shoot with the bow and arrow. As a female, I can tell you that didn't happen!! :) No, these people were born that way. So "man" in the first week of creation was created male and female without genitalia and with a womb. (Ok so a few things have changed since then!)


Now in Ephesians 2 it says... for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; 16And that he might reconcile both to God in one body by the cross....so I think this means that we are suppose to....instead of arguing with ourselves, live in peace with the other personality.
