“The key element in channeling, is the ability to temporarily withdraw the “filters” of your own personal beliefs and be a clear channel.
To bring through what is actually given, not your slant on what you think it might mean.
When I am saying ‘you’, I mean this in a general term of course here, not ‘you’ personally. Always remember that it’s meant to be about the Message, not the messenger.” – Hidden Hand
Channeled messages have been around for eons.
Channeled messages are received from the cosmos or another plane of existence (non-physical energy) usually by your higher-self, and received from a human body or channel also known as a spiritual medium.
Channeled information is a direct telepathic understanding of a concept usually in a state similar to a daydream. Anyone can learn to be a channeler with a little patience and practice.
Some of the most popular channelers in our history are:
- Jane Roberts – The Seth Material
- Edgar Cayce – The Sleeping Prophet
- Esther Hicks – The Teachings of Abraham
- Darryl Anka – Bashar, A Being of Extraterrestrial Origin
- Neale Donald Walsch – Conversations With God
There are many more channelers/spiritual mediums out there, but these five are my favorites.
What is the Higher-Self
Your higher-self is the you that is complete and whole, the real you and not the fictitious character that you are playing in the reality world called planet earth.
The higher-self exists on many planes or dimensions.
The higher-self is the over soul that can be anywhere at anytime and does not associate as an individual, but knows that we are all connected to source energy that we call God.
What is the Little-Self
The little-self is the you that is experiencing the world with limitations.
The little-self is also described as the ego or the temporary you that is experiencing physical life.
The term little-self is by no means meant to diminish the worthiness or value of the physical you.
I will use a metaphor here in regards to higher and lower-self. If you were playing a video game, the player would be the higher-self, and the character in the game would be the little-Self.
The higher-self is the you that sends quiet messages to the little-Self. Hey, don’t go that way to work, or don’t buy that house because a better one is right around the corner.
The higher-self will communicate to the little-Self through thoughts, images, words, and synchronicity that we label as intuition.
Part of the deal of incarnating on planet earth is the feeling or appearance of separation.
This of course is an illusion; we are all connected to each other and to Source Energy at all times.
What is a spiritual medium
From Medium James Van Praagh’s website:
A medium is a psychic who has fine-tuned his or her extrasensory perception and can interface with the spirits in other dimensions.
They are able to feel and/or hear thoughts, voices or mental impressions from the spirit world. A medium is able to become completely receptive to the higher frequency or energies on which spirit people vibrate.
Mediumship is much more involved than psychicism because a medium is opening him/herself to a discarnate energy.
Mediumship itself can be broken down into two distinct categories. The first and most common type is mental mediumship, which is how I work with my abilities.
I communicate with spirits while fully conscious. As the word mental denotes, this form of mediumship utilizes the mind – the intuitive mind, not the rational or logical part.
This type of mental mediumship falls into several distinct types which are described as:
Clairsentience – (clear feeling) Perceive information by way of strong, emphatic feelings and emotions from spirit.
Clairvoyant – (clear vision) See with the mind’s eye objects, colors, symbols, people, spirits or scenes. These pictures are not visible to the naked eye and usually flash into the medium’s mind.
Clairaudient – (clear hearing) Perceive sounds or words from sources broadcasting from a spiritual realm.
Clairempathy – (clear emotion) Sense or “feel” within one’s self the attitude or emotions of another person.
Clairgustance – (clear tasting”) Discern the essence of a substance through taste from spirit.
Clairscent – (clear smelling). Smell a fragrance or odor coming from the spirit.
Clairtangency – (clear touching) This ability is commonly known as Psychometry. By holding an object or touching an area you perceive information about the article or its owner or history through the palms of your hands.
Why Would you Want to be a psychic medium
We channel information all the time whether we realize it or not.
Have you ever gone somewhere and someone you meet says something to you that you had contemplated.? They were temporarily channeling a message to you from your higher-self.
Most people learn how to channel to help themselves grow into the person that they want to be.
Others learn how to channel to help others help themselves, such as Edgar Cayce when he would channel the Akashic Records to help his clients with their health issues.
How to Become a Conscious Channel of Information
First off, there are two types of channeling; vocal and non-vocal. Abraham is vocally channeled through Esther Hicks.
Neale Donald Walsch would be considered a non vocal channel in regards to writing his Conversations With God books.
You can also channel through dancing, singing, acting, and other various forms of self-expression.
A channel is able to turn down their own rational mind, ego, logical processor and personal belief system to allow the message to flow through them.
In order to channel you have to match your vibration (frequency) with that which you want to channel. Changing your vibration is similar to using a tuning fork to tune an instrument.
You can read more about vibrations by clicking here.
The channeling chakra is located at the back of the neck. Many channelers complain that they get neck pain when they first begin channeling.
This is completely normal and will eventually dissolve itself in time when you learn to allow the flow of energy.
A critical point to discuss here is that when you begin to channel, the body may be resistant to letting this new energy through.
The body tends to become constrictive in these moments because it may be uncertain that it can handle this new energy, or it is not certain about what this new energy is.
Physical ailments and possibly disease may result due to the body not allowing the channeled energy to come through.
This should only be temporary if you decide that you want to continue channeling as you trust that these are symptoms of allowing yourself to stretch and grow.
We often refer to this experience as “growing pains”.
The channel Darryl Anka describes his first channeling experiences like” The Hoover Dam trying to force its way through a garden hose.”
Anka states “that you have to learn to widen the conduit in order to let information through more easily.”
Otherwise the hose will be put under a lot of pressure, and in your body that pressure can translate into physical pain, emotional flip-flops, tension, and upset.
Many people confuse channeling with being possessed or having something inhabit your body.
This is not the case with channeling because there is no space to occupy, you fill up your space, and there is no room for anything to get in there.
Remember that channeling is a matter of aligning your vibration (frequency) with that which you wish to channel. It can last as long or as short as you are comfortable with.
Have you ever seen a comic like Frank Caliendo do an impersonation of John Madden or George Bush?
He doesn’t pretend to be them, Frank actually becomes them by making his vibration a match with who he is impersonating.
Try Channeling Information as a Spiritual Medium
Let’s begin to channel:
- Tune in your vibration with that which you want to channel.
- Open up yourself like a conduit allowing the energy and information to flow.
- Get your mind into the Alpha state through self hypnosis:Take in a deep breath.While breathing out see the number 3 in your head and repeat it 3 times.Next.
While breathing out see the number 2 in your head and repeat it 3 times.
While breathing out see the number 1 in your head and repeat it 3 times.
- Express the energy through writing, dancing, singing, speaking, etc.
That’s all there is too it. Just try for fifteen minutes a day, everyday for a week.
You will soon be on your way to becoming a channel. If you find that you can channel with ease, you may want to consider doing it professionally in any way that serves you.
Some people ask why do people charge for information such as channeling. It should be free. Your right, it should be free, but they are not paying for the information.
They are paying for the fact that they are not allowing themselves to receive their own channeled information.
What they are doing is paying you to do it for them because they are not allowing the answers to come to them.
So let go of any issues that you may have about charging money for services that you do. There is nothing spiritual about being broke.
A Word of Caution About Channeling
When you channel/ become a psychic medium you are ultimately connecting with non-physical energy.
With this being said it would be wise to know what you are connecting with.
If you are completely new to channeling I would recommend taking some professional online courses or speaking directly with a reputable psychic medium like Dr. Gwen MacGregor.
Either way, let your feelings be your guide.
All energy should feel neutral to good. If you are channeling information and you become ill or feel extreme negativity, simply disconnect yourself and stop what you are doing.
