3019. Certain spirits greatly desire to be people on earth

All spirits in general when they are with a person do not know but that they are people on earth. But there are others who want to be the person and entirely occupy his or her body, and then regard the person they are with as having no body.

Such ones have often been with me and attempted much, some less, who were nevertheless touched with shame, for they imagine they see their faces in the mirror [2106, 2205], among other things. In this way spirits are moved away from that desire. 1748, 1 Sept.
