about channeling

“You could leave the channeling out of it. Call it inspiration; that's all it is. You don't call the basketball player a channeler, but he is; he's an extension of Source Energy. You don't call the surgeon a channeler, but he is. You don't call the musician, the magnificent master musician, you don't call him a channeler, but he is. He's channeling the broader essence of who he is into the specifics of what he is about." - Abraham-Hicks

    Well fine then, but what is it, really?

The Merriam-Webster definition of channeling (UK spelling “channelling” by the way, so you will find both spellings on this site because I do not favor one over the other) reads:

- to convey or direct into or through a channel

- to serve as a channeler or intermediary for

And the definition for channeler (from the same source):

  1. -a person who conveys thoughts or energy from a source believed to be outside the person's body or conscious mind; specifically: one who speaks for nonphysical beings or spirits.

    For example, Darryl Anka channels Bashar, who is introduced as an alien and future version of Darryl.  Lee Carroll channels Kryon, the “magnetic master” from the other side of the veil who has created the magnetic grid of the Earth.  And Neale Donald Walsch simply channels, well, God...

  1. -“Really?” you might say. “Is any of this provable?” 

Well, absolutely not... And it doesn’t matter one bit.

What matters here is the value of the information given (and I will come back to that later).

But as far as the process is involved, God knows what really goes on...

    Author Tom Kenyon explains channeled material thus: "From the standpoint of neuropsychology, channeled information is just another expression of our brain/mind potential . . . a movement into the unknown territory of one's own psyche to see what emerges in terms of contact and information."

And from a quantum perspective, where past, present and future all happen simultaneously and in which we are all One with everything (and that includes EVERYTHING, the computer you are reading this on, the neighbour you’ve never spoken to, your ant’s cat, every single moon and planet, even the food you had for breakfast) no one really channels anything or anyone but themselves, because there is no one else to channel from.  Or to.

    Hence, I simply see channelers as people who can tap into that part of their subconscious that knows and grasps much more than what the human mind is usually capable of handling; in other words, inspired people.  And that is what inspiration is, a total alignment with our Spiritual self without resistance from the mind/ego. To be inspired is to be In-Spirit (now is a good time to re-read the Abraham-Hicks quote at the top of the page).

It is our three-dimensionally biased minds’ constant cravings for labels that prompts us to put a name on the source of the channeled information, and our egos’ refusal to see us for the Powerful Beings we are that blinds us to the fact that We are the source...


    To me, at some level, I am Bashar, I am Kryon, and I am... (dare I say it?) God (you know what?  It felt oddly good to acknowledge this), made in its image not in terms of physical resemblance, but rather potential.  Now, I am not denying that there is an exchange taking place between say, Darryl Anka and an alien life form (I simply don’t know), but merely that whether or not that is what is happening is far less relevant than the fact that Darryl Anka, yourself, and I, are one with the Universe and all the information it contains, and that we can access that information by opening many and different doors.  It is then up to us to decide individually whether to use or discard it.

    Other authors, such as Mike Dooley or Dan Millman don’t advertise themselves as channelers, but still act as conduits for ideas; they too are inspired vessels of diffusion.  It is merely the presentation that changes, not so much the content; as you will find, they all seem to be saying the same thing, using different words.

    Now, about the information.  This is where one has to use common sense and discernment.   Not all channeled information is to be taken literally, or is even all true for that matter.  The internet is full of channeled content, but should you believe all of it?  Do you believe all the news you see on TV?  Just because someone screams “Extra! Extra! News from Spirit, read all about it!” doesn’t necessarily mean they are holding the truth or have your best interests at heart.  You should trust your own judgement at all times.

    In that regard, Lee Carroll has published some very insightful guidelines about channeled material in the July 1987 issue of New Realities Magazine (if you are not comfortable with the word Spirit, you can replace it with Life, or the Universe).

  1. 1)There will always be useful information for everyone. Beware of the channel that gives you useful information for only a few, or tells you that it's only for a special group or a sequestered number. It must be useful for ALL humanity, every single Human.

  1. 2)The message should be uplifting. Watch for an empowering message - NOT ONE OF FEAR, not one that drags you down - not one that makes you want to take fearful action or hide - but an enabling message.

  1. 3)Spirit will never, ever channel a message that asks you to give up your free will. Never! For your free will is what your experience on Earth is all about.

  1. 4)Spirit will never give you a message - ever - that asks you to violate the integrity of what you believe. You are honoured in your thought processes. Spirit will never trick you or "talk you" into anything. The message must never violate your integrity. You must feel comfortable with it, and it must ring true to your heart.


  1. 5)Spirit will never represent a channeller as being the only source. Watch for this, for there are many channels of Spirit and they all coordinate their information to create a bigger picture, especially in this New Age.

  1. 6)Watch for the fact that the information is normally new information. Beware of the channel that simply re-hashes the old, for they are not channelling anything but the ego of the Human Being. New information is necessary, combined with "core information," it is the entire reason for the channel.

  1. 7)Watch for the fact that channelled information should have spiritual solutions presented. Solutions to life challenges on Earth, via new information, is the purpose of channelling. 

    Ultimately, as mentioned before, trust your judgement above all, and let your intuition be your gauge.  The cells in our bodies are far more perceptive and intelligent we give them credit for, and when exposed to information, old or new, they let you know what they “think” of it, and so does the soul...  You have a hunch, a feeling...  Follow it, it’s yours.  Your mind is filled with ideas forced into you since birth, beliefs borrowed for conformity, and truths that have nothing to do with yours, so your intuition remains the only real meter you can use to know what’s right for you.

    Still, isn’t there some kind of tangible evidence that the information given on this site, whether channeled or not, is useful at all?  Only my first-hand experience and the innumerable amount of stories from people all over the world, regardless of their backgrounds, who have seen their quality of life (all areas of it) greatly improved by nothing more than a slight change in perspective...  And I believe that is worth considering.
