Real Names: Carol Parrish and "Juelle"
Case: Psychic Phenomenon
Location: Clearwater, Florida
Details: While Carol Parrish was giving birth to her sixth child, doctors gave her two shots of Sodium Pentothal to ease the pain, but she had an allergic reaction to the drug, her lungs collapsed, and she was near death. Carol then felt that she wasn't there, and that she was looking down on herself as she gave birth. Carol felt that she was in a tunnel and light, which she believes was a near-death experience. Amazingly, Carol survived, but she claimed that when she woke up, her body had been taken over by a different soul, and that "Young Carol" went off with others, which are called "Walk-ins," which occur when people have near-death experiences and theirs souls are traded. Everything about Carol changed, and she began having out-of-body experiences, and her husband and doctor thought she was going crazy. Carol's new identity seemed to threaten her husband, and he left. Seven years later, Carol began to study religion and became a minister. Another case of "Walk-ins" is about a high school principal named "Shari". While she was visiting a friend in Wyoming, she felt uneasy, and she asked her friend, who was a metaphysical healer, to lay hands on her. Suddenly, the room began to change and a golden, pulsating energy went into her spine and strangle lighst and colors appeared and she floated in the air. After the experience, Shari realized that she had taken a new identity, and she even changed her name to "Juelle." However, every day tasks became extremely difficult for Juelle including going shopping at a supermarket due to strange energy fields. Eventually, Juelle's husband and children were able to adapt to it and now the family is much closer. Juelle now is dedicated to work with and help other "walk-ins." Many "walk-ins" believe that the new souls help change them for the better, and that is all that matters to them.
