As those of you who’ve read several of my posts will know, I frequently mention Abraham-Hicks. I give them a lot of credit in terms of having helped me “get” this stuff. Abraham, for those of you who don’t know, is a group of non-physical entities who are channeled through Esther Hicks. I’ve also relied heavily on other channeled info, such as Seth, Orin, Chief Joseph and I’ve recently been introduced to Jeshua. And then, of course, I’ve had my own experiences with connecting to Universal Intelligence. I’ve had private conversations with all kinds of consciousnesses, including a few with Abraham themselves. All in all, a lot of my understanding comes from the non-physical world, and more and more, I’m getting my “education” directly from the source.
Because I’ve mentioned channeling on several occasions, many of you have sent me questions about this subject. I’d like to address the most common of these today.
“What exactly is channeling?”
When most people think of channeling, they think of an older woman in a turban and gold hoop earrings, rolling back her eyes, speaking in a strange voice and pretending to make the table jump around the room. It’s weird and mysterious and most people think it’s fake. And to be sure, not everyone who has claimed to channel (or be a medium, psychic, intuitive, etc.) has been on the up and up. Furthermore, the theatrics helped to sell those services in the past, so overt weirdness was encouraged. We’ve come a long way since then.
Everyone channels. Yes, even you. You channel all day long. Channeling is nothing more than translating non-physical energy through your brain and physical body, and then sometimes communicating that into something others can understand. The act of channeling itself is no big deal. When you get a hunch, an intuitive hit, an inspired idea – those are all examples of channeling.
Some people, through natural talent and/or loads of practice, have trained themselves to connect with and translate specific frequencies. The non-physical energy that’s out there is not inert. It’s not just a bunch of lifeless atoms floating about. There is a consciousness, an intelligence there and we can connect to it. We can connect to any thought that’s ever been thought, any idea that’s ever been had, past, present and future. We can connect to anything our imagination can conceive of and beyond. It’s really all just a matter of training ourselves to access specific frequencies, as well as translating them in ways that others will understand. When someone does this well, we call them a psychic, medium or channel.
“I love channeled information, but how can I know that it’s real?”
A lot of people ask me this question. They resonate with what they’re hearing, but they can’t get past the weird factor. Is the channel faking it? Are they simply putting on a great show?
Let me answer to this with another question: Who cares? Honestly, if you resonate deeply with the information, who really cares where it came from? Your mind may demand credentials and proof that the source of the information is credible. That’s because your mind is incredibly insecure. It looks for rules, for confirmation, for other’s approval. If society says something is ok, if they have deemed someone credible through certifications or stamps of approval, then the information they are providing must be good. If not, well, we’d better disregard it. We don’t want to go and believe something that will make us look like idiots, right? Your mind will always take the safe route. It’s governed by fear, by logic, by black and white. Your mind doesn’t understand dreams, passion, love, joy or euphoria. Your mind wants nothing to do with emotions and feelings or anything it can’t see, touch, taste or smell.
But your intuition does. Your intuition knows better. It will tell you when something is “true” for you or not. You will feel a deep resonance with that information, a feeling of recognition, like you’re being reminded of something you already know but have forgotten. And when you have that feeling, who cares what the source of that kind of information is? Does it really matter if it is truly channeled or if the person is just really wise? Does it matter if they are spinning a story using their imagination if that story helps you? To me, it doesn’t.
In the early days, when I was just starting to read channeled information, I also doubted whether or not it was real. That thought was just a little too out there for me. But I couldn’t deny how much the channeled information appealed to me, how true it sounded to me, how much sense it made and how much it helped me. And so, I focused on that – does it feel right? Accept it. Does it feel off? Throw it out, even if it comes from a really “credible” source.
“Does the Person who channels get taken over by an entity?”
Different mediums work in different ways. Some go into a full on trance, while others don’t seem to change at all. From what I’ve noticed, the full on trance type of channels are becoming more rare. I think this is because it’s becoming easier for us to allow ourselves to access those higher frequencies. In order to allow a high frequency to flow through you, you have to get out of the way. You can’t control the flow, censor or judge the information that’s coming through, or try to “help” in any way. You have to mentally step aside and just let it flow (this is what takes the most practice). For a lot of people, it’s easiest to do that if they completely get their minds out of the way and go into a trance. But, as the global energy rises and we all get closer to higher and higher frequencies (and as a result, become more allowing), it’s becoming easier to stay conscious while fully letting the energy to flow. This will vary from person to person of course.
So, whether or not the channel remains conscious during the session, is determined only by their own ability to allow the high frequency to flow. One isn’t necessarily better than the other, they’re just different ways of accomplishing the same goal. In either case, it’s the channel who opens themselves up, connects with the higher frequency, allows the information to flow and then translates it into words or actions. Someone who channels (and remember that we all channel) may speak the information, or sing it, write it, paint it, sculpt it, or dunk a basketball. In all cases, we have to allow the flow of energy through. There is no way that an entity (and there are no entities, really, there is only consciousness) can overtake a human being or animal and force them to do something on their behalf. You have to be a willing participant. Every time.
If you’ve ever had the experience or heard of someone having the experience of those who have transitioned using birds, animals or insects to communicate with the living, you may think that the dead person “used” that animal to do its bidding. And they did, kind of. But the bird, animal or insect still had to be a willing participant. Luckily for us, they generally are. Non-humans are a lot more cooperative, in general, than we are (mostly because they don’t give a crap what the other non-humans or even humans think. They just go with the flow.)
“Is all channeled information coming from a higher source?”
No. Channeling simply means connecting with non-physical energy. It does not necessarily mean connecting with something helpful. How can you know the difference? Well, by the way the information feels to you. There’s never any danger that channeled information is “evil” or will lead you astray. If it feels awesome to you, then this particular information is good for you. If not, disregard it.
Remember that you are manifesting your reality and everything in your experience has been drawn to you by you. And this includes channeled information. This means that when you happen upon some channeled information that rings your bells, it’s a manifestation of yours. Usually, it’s the answer to a question you’ve been asking.
The key is not to trust any information simply based on the source. Always use your own intuition to guide you in what to accept and what to dismiss.
“Do you have to be enlightened to channel?”
Absolutely not. Again, the act of channeling is simply connecting with energy. It doesn’t just become channeling when you connect to higher frequencies. Your own vibration will always affect the range of frequencies you have access to. This doesn’t mean that a miserable bastard can’t access higher intelligence. But it would represent a quantum leap for him and he would be profoundly changed by the experience.
But the top of the range of what any person can access is limited by where their own vibration is. And as that person raises their core vibration, they will have access to higher and higher frequencies. If you want to talk to Abraham, for example, you’d better be in a really good place to start.
So, in order to access really high frequencies, the person doing the translating does have to have a pretty high vibration. This doesn’t mean, however, that they’re going to be perfect or saintly. They’re still going to have some resistance, experience contrast and make mistakes. And that’s perfectly ok. If they dropped all of that, they’d be, well, dead.
“How can someone channel on demand? How does the non-physical know when to show up?”
The non-physical consciousness doesn’t show up. It’s always there, broadcasting like a radio station. We’re the ones that have to tune into the signal and we can do so any time we want.
For example, when I coach, I connect with the client’s higher self. For all intents and purposes, I channel. I also often channel when I write. I don’t have to wait for that energy to become available to me. All I have to do is to ensure that I can access it. If I’m having a bad day, or I’m frustrated about something, it becomes much harder. If I’m relaxed and in a happy shiny place, it’s super easy. And as time goes by, it gets easier and easier (I’m happy to share some of these personal experiences with you if you like. Just tell me what you’d like to know in the comments). I have to tune my own receiver to the frequency I want to translate.
Time and space don’t exist in the non-physical. So Abraham, for example, is ALWAYS available for Esther and anyone else to connect to. In fact, several people could connect with the consciousness known as Abraham at once, and it would make no difference. Again, it’s like a radio station – the signal isn’t impacted by how many radios are receiving it.
I hope this has given you a better understanding of what channeling is. If you still have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments. And as stated, I’m happy to share some of my own personal experiences with you, if you like.
