So I realized that in the last part I explained what you need for an over soul but now how they work.
An Over Soul is something that almost every religion has aquired in different ways. At it’s base it is a spirit’s energies and a human’s energies mixing inside of a physical object.
As stated in the last post, this object is a mutual object that the spirit can relate to. This object, now charged with both the human’s and the spirit’s energies, becomes a tool of empowerment to accomplish a goal.
This has been used in several different methods. Possible the most well known one is actually the Ouija Board, pendulum, or other forms of divination. People do these instinctively, and it is quite simple for the spirits to lend energy through such a manner.
There are other forms of Over Soul in the physical such as charms. Charms carry the spirit or energy of a Soul and the natural energies coming off of humans generates the energy to activate and run the charm.
As you can tell this is not exactly rare for people to do.
Priests do it often. When evoking a specific god through an item, often a staff or wand or athame, the object becomes a conduit for the god to enter and lend it’s energies to the service. This is actually over soul.
In the physical this is one of the most common ways to invoke a being. In the astral, spirit world, dreaming, or other unseen worlds, this can be a bit harder to achieve because of the structure of energy.
Which is where furyoku comes in, apparently. It is a form of energy that can be translated to either Shamanic power or Floating Power. Both sound like they could be related so I am not going to push this much especially because of how it is used. As I see and understand it. it takes the energy, body, and power of a spirit, transforms it, and them places it over your own skin, having it “Float” with your power.
This made me wonder what qualified one to be the one that becomes the over soul and I learned of some boundries listed below.
- Soul in question may not have any living form.
- Soul in question may not be tied to any place or being with negative energies(probably due to them being some manner of unwilling)
- Soul in question may not try to control the actions of the one wielding the over soul. (this will trigger possession and thus break down the over soul because it is no longer “Floating”)
In the astral, this can be a great weapon to use to protect yourself without using a lot of your own energy. The form of the Over Soul will be something akin to the spirit in question creating a translucent image over your own energies. This will change depending on the item and Soul.
To “activate” the Over soul, you and the soul in question will both have to touch the item, push your energy into it at a natural rate(the spirit will match yours) After a moment of focusing on this, the spirit you are working with will then enter the item and take the form of the Over Soul. After you are use to doing this with a Soul you trust, you can alter the over soul a bit by making it grow or shrink in size, or making the item look like a similar item. While in this state, the Soul you are working with will be able to give you advice and act as a second set of senses, which is very useful when outnumbered or in a tight situation.
That is all I really know about Over Souls and Furyoku. Hope it helps people out there.
