Channeling is the process of entering into a deep meditative state and open a natural form of communication between humans and angelic beings, nature spirits, non-physical entities, spirit guides, ascended masters, and beings in spiritual realms, or even animals and pets. A channeler is very similar to a language translator or interpreter. They allow themselves to sense the non-verbal communication from another being and then translate it into human words.
A channeler can choose who or what they want to channel. As long as the other party has an interest in communicating, the link is made, and the channeling can begin. For instance, many people channel Archangel Michael. If he agrees to communicate with the channeler, the flow of non-verbal information begins. The channeler receives the raw information at a high sensory level and then converts it into human language.
Misconceptions about Channeling
Contrary to popular belief, entities do not generally use human language, because it is considered awkward and clumsy. The richer essence of their message is conveyed through an elegant series of sensory feelings.
Another popular misconception is that a channeler must go into a deep trance state, or surrender their body and/or mind to the entity. In reality, the entity does not have to enter the body or mind of the channeler and, in fact, can actually be millions of light years away or even in another dimension. However, channeling is similar to any other form of communication – verbal communication, body language, physical senses, art, and so on – that expresses a message which is then subject to the receiver’s understanding. Most well-known channelers today remain aware of themselves and the activities going on in the room, while at the same time focusing their senses and attention on the entity they are channeling. Contemporary channelers do not generally leave their bodies or surrender their minds during the communication process.
Some people fear channeling because they don’t understand the process. They think that a negative or dark entity can come in without permission. This is not the case. The channeler always retains the choice of who or what they want to channel, just like they have the choice of who they want as friends or business associates. The channeler can insist on knowing the name and origins of any entity or angelic being who wants to communicate with them. Experienced channelers understand that just because an entity wants to communicate doesn’t mean that the entity is necessarily enlightened. The channeler should discern for themselves the level of enlightenment of the entity and the value of their information. Some entities just like to chat; others can have an agenda; and there are also many entities who have a desire to provide enlightened guidance and counsel.
