Channeling is like a bridge between two worlds. It's a method of linking dimensions. Consciousness is Infinite so the energy of ourselves, our Spiritual Selves, continues expressing itself even when we release the body through the dying process. Channeling can be likened to tuning in to a specific program on the radio where we "Tune In" or "Dial In" to a specific radio frequency. There are several different levels of channeling from Trance Channeling, where the receiver of the information that is coming from higher realms of expression is unaware of what is being transmitted, to a level where the receiver or channeler is aware of the information coming through but knows it is beyond their own conscious mind.
As we evolve in wisdom through the course of our lives, our Souls evolve in like manner and every lifetime is an opportunity for the evolution of the Soul. There are Wise Ones that have gone before us who exist in spiritual realms who can be accessed through meditation and conscious connection. The channeling process allows us to access that Higher wisdom and understanding that is unavailable through simply experiencing our lives via the status quo and what has been handed down from generation to generation. The air or oxygen that we breathe is an example of something we cannot see but there is no denying that it exists. Air is merely vibrating at a rate of speed that is undetectable to the naked eye and Albert Einstein's scientific genius helped us understand that everything is energy vibrating at different rates or frequencies. Other dimensions do indeed exist even though we cannot see them.
Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), was known as the sleeping prophet and was one of the most prolific channelers of modern times at over 14,500 readings. He would simply lay down and go to "sleep" while he was asked questions that initially focused on physical ailments and their treatments despite Cayce only having a ninth grade education. Later, his readings expanded to include information about past lives, the history of earth and it's ancient civilizations as well as prophesies for the future. Jane Roberts who channeled a wise and advanced being named Seth, sat upright while her husband took dictation of the information coming through but Jane was mostly in a light trance state, as she described it. Her works include, "Seth Speaks, The Eternal Validity of the Soul" and it "is still considered one of the most dynamic and brilliant maps of inner reality and human potential available today."
Seth explains in Seth Speaks, "Each individual has access to intuitional knowledge and can gain glimpses of inner reality. The universe speaks to each of us in this regard...Consciousness creates form. It is not the other way around. All personalities are not physical. It is only because you are so busily concerned with daily matters that you do not realize that there is a portion of you who knows that its own powers are far superior to those shown by the ordinary self."
And Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer, at www.orindaben.com, teach that channeling is a skill that can be learned and they, themselves, channel wise Light Beings, Orin and DaBen, who teach how to connect with your Guides, how to receive clear guidance, how to transcend the ego, how to activate the Light Body and many other classes on spiritual awakening. Opening to Channel, How to Connect With Your Guide, is just one of many books written by Sanaya that can help seekers accelerate their spiritual growth. A Course in Miracles channeled by Dr. Helen Shucman, herself an agnostic, was a 7 year project channeling Jesus as the "voice" that spoke to her and began with the request, "This is a course in miracles, please take notes".
I mention some of these examples as validation and explanation for my own experiences of opening to channel. While a student in esthetic school, I sought out the advice of an intuitive (or channel) who told me that my study of esthetics would lead me to my higher purpose of healing. I completed school and opened a home based skincare business in 2007 and shortly thereafter, I began to have curious experiences and sensations that directed me to move my own hands, arms and body to specific points and places after I had completed a traditional facial on my client. In the beginning, it was all very robotic and clumsy but now has evolved to become quite elaborate, precise and tangible.
At about the same time that I opened to channel Energetic Healing and Attunements, I began to experiment with automatic or channeled writing and occasionally verbal channeling as well. And while I feel like an amateur in this regard, I have been greatly encouraged by my own Guides to begin a more public sharing of some of the ideas and information coming through these channeled writings.
My devotion to understanding our Spiritual Nature, understanding Truth in it's most accurate, non-dogmatic and purest of ways has lead me on a path to purify my own consciousness through psychotherapy, shamanism, prayer, meditation, journaling, forgiveness as taught by A Course in Miracles and ongoing study of many of the spiritual traditions leading humanity to the reality of our Divine Nature.
Just as there are people on the planet who live their lives in a low expression and a high expression of their Divine selves, those same beings or entities move into the spiritual realms according to their level of soul's evolution and understanding. So when we open to channel, we must use discernment in whether or not the information being presented to us generates a sense of fear or one of encouragement, love, and hope. The Beings who work with me continually educate and communicate within the framework of Unity Consciousness, Christ Consciousness, Buddha Mind and the Truth that ALL IS ONE.
Look for future channeled postings from these extraordinary spiritual teachers of Light, Love and Truth.
