Delayering is a term used by Ian Lawton in his soul series books to describe the process of healing and energy lightening that all souls receive in order to transition into the light realms. In other words, it is the shedding of layers as the soul transitions from the physical world to the spiritual world.

Relayering is the process of taking on the emotions and strengths that a soul wants to work on or within the next incarnate life. In other words, it is the taking on of layers as the soul moves into the physical world.
