I found this article.
"Throughout most of our incarnational experience here on Earth, each of the soul units within the oversoul structure has embodied in separate, simultaneous incarnations. From the perspective of the oversoul, this expansion of incarnational experiences enables the oversoul to accelerate it evolutionary development.
When the plans for the final phase of this long evolutionary cycle were being worked out, it was anticipated that most of the Light Workers, at least those from the early groups, would go through the ascension process at some point during this lifetime. One of the prerequisites for ascension is that all of the soul units of an oversoul structure must be embodied in the same body. One reason for this is that ascension is an experience of the total oversoul; it cannot be undertaken by just one
soul unit independently. And since ascension involves the transformation of the physical body, in order to create an ascension body, this cannot be done with multiple bodies involved.
So within the context of this ascension plan, each of the oversouls worked out a plan as to how it would accomplish this "oversoul consolidation." The development of such a plan started with a decision as to the particular embodiment into which the various soul units would be consolidated. Typically, just one of the 7 soul units would initially be extended into this particular embodiment. Such an embodiment could either be through the natural birth process, or through a "soul transfer" arrangement. In most cases, it was the plan that this embodiment would proceed through the early life experiences, and through a significant part of the awakening and healing processes, before other soul units would begin to integrate into the embodiment.
For the majority of Light Workers, this integration, or consolidation, process has begun sometime within the past 10 years -- in fact, in many cases it has begun only within the past 5 years.
In the lives of many of the Light Workers, there has been a lot of confusion around this entire issue. One reason for this is that as the second soul begins to integrate into the embodiment, a Light Worker may suddenly begin to feel like a "different person". It is not at all uncommon that such a person might feel inclined to change their name, of even leave a relationship, because in reality, they are a different person -- or at least, 50% of them is a different person.
Typically, after the integration of the second soul unit into the embodiment is completed -- a process that may take place over a period of a couple of months -- the embodiment will remain in that configuration for 2 or 3 years, in order to enable the personality-self to assimilate the influence of the second soul.
After such a period of assimilation is completed, then the 3rd soul unit will begin to integrate into the embodiment. Usually the assimilation process is slightly easier related to the 3rd soul unit, because at that point only 33% of the embodiment is "new." So the time period for assimilation of the 3rd soul unit is typically 1-2 years.
As this process continues, with the integration of the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th soul units, each successive integration tends to require somewhat less time for the assimilation process. Typically, the time period required for integration and assimilation of all of the soul units is in the range of 7 to 10 years. However, there are various factors that may cause the assimilation period to be extended.
As the soul units progressively integrate into the embodiment, they tend to take turns being in the "drivers seat." In other words, one soul unit may function in the forefront of the personality self for a period of time, while the other souls remain in the background. Then, one of the other soul units may take a turn at being in the forefront. This may cause such a Light Worker to feel at times like he/she has multiple personalities. Close friends also may be sensitive to this "revolving chair" phenomenon. Sometimes this can create significant complications in a relationship. Consider, for a moment, a hypothetical situation in which the original soul in the embodiment has a close soul connection, and corresponding attraction, to the soul of a marriage partner. And then as other souls merge into the embodiment, the original soul may spend most of its time in the background.
Healing the Individual Soul Units
There also are some important issues related to the healing process. One of the important purposes of this final lifetime of this evolutionary cycle is to heal, and bring into balance, all of the residual imbalances from previous lifetimes. So as each soul successively integrates into the embodiment, it brings with it such residual imbalances. If these imbalances are severe, they can trigger a healing crisis within the embodiment. I have observed many of my light worker friends as they have gone through the oversoul consolidation process. And it seems to be a very common experience that such a Light Worker may feel that they are in good health, and then "wham," all of a sudden a physical disorder will spring up -- seemingly from nowhere. As I have tuned into such situations, it is very common that such a crisis has been caused by a residual imbalanced situation in one of the incoming souls - - usually the most recent one to integrate into the embodiment.
A similar phenomenon can occur related to emotional or mental energy imbalances. Usually these are somewhat more subtle, although no less important, than those that occur on a physical level.
There is yet another unexpected issue which sometimes arises in conjunction with the soul consolidation process. As a way of introducing this issue, let me use as an example the experience of one of my Light Worker friends.
In the early stages of her spiritual awakening, a "teacher" within the unseen dimensions came to her and introduced himself (she related to him as a male energy), and indicated that he would be assisting her in her Lightwork mission to the extent that she would be open to his assistance. His energy was very loving, and he seemed very wise, so she gratefully accepted his offer. As her spiritual unfolding continued, he played an increasingly important role in her life and in her work. Her path of service involved leading workshops and doing individual soul- oriented counseling. By mutual agreement, he often would merge into her embodiment during a workshop, and share teachings directly with the participants in her workshops. As a side note, the two of them became very important teachers for me in the early stages of my awakening.
This relationship between the two of them continued for at least 20 years, and he became her dearest friend and source of inspiration. One day he came to her (on the unseen dimensions, of course) and indicated that he would no longer be able to serve her in this way. He indicated that the reason for this is that he would be merging into her embodiment along with her. Her emotional reaction to this announcement was of, course, intense. On the one hand, she felt a tremendous loss -- as though her closest and dearest friend was going to "die." Yet, on the other hand, she felt elation that his love and wisdom would now become a part of "her." As the situation turned out, of course, he was simply one of the other souls of the oversoul cluster of which she also was a part. And it was time to integrate into the embodiment in preparation for the ascension process.
In tracking the experiences of many of my Light Worker friends, I have learned that this is a fairly common experience, although not necessarily to this same extreme. But it is not at all unusual for one of the souls (who is not currently in embodiment) of the same oversoul cluster to serve as a guide and teacher for a Light Worker for a period of time before integrating into the same embodiment. Thus, a relationship develops as though the two are separate beings. Then, as the integration occurs, the "separate" being no longer exists as an external identity, and it is quite common in such cases to feel a significant loss. "
I am totally cool about integrating Reini if this is what is going on. Maybe it is the only way he will be able to continue and I will be able to try and grow to the level of spiritual growth I so want to achieve, by redeeming the irredeemable? That is so darn beautiful to me! Taht is truth to me. And I am honoured to be a part of that. What an awesome thing to be able to attempt!
