I’ll start with answering a few common questions about channeling.
Can anyone channel?
Yes, we can all channel. It does take practice though, but we’re all so much more connected than we realise. It’s more a question of how many blocks we’ve put up in the way of our connection. For most of us, it’s a lot, and in order to channel and let the information flow freely, we need to clear out the limiting thoughts and blocks which stifle our connection.
Who do you channel?
Often it’s helpful to start with channeling your Higher Self, or your Soul, or the divine. But I’ve always found that spirit guides and angels are right there ready and willing as well. You don’t need to contact an intergalactic being first time, or an ascended master, just start with connecting into a higher part of yourself. Our guides and angels are always by our sides so when first starting out it’s a good idea to call them in for help! Whether you end up channeling them directly or not, I would certainly enlist their help.
How to start.
If you don’t meditate much then it’d be helpful to use a good guided meditation to get you deeply relaxed and connected. Most of us live our life up in our heads, in the conscious, thinking left brained part. The practice of channeling is all subjective, non-physical, right brained stuff.
Meditation helps us to let go of the ‘thinking’ and move into the experience.
Visualising white light is helpful as well, as it generally clears our energy and raises our vibration. Both aspects are essential when creating a clear connection. It will help to elevate you out of the traditional physical density or our world and it also serves as a method to move you out from your thinking mind and into your intuitive nature.
If you do meditate, then get yourself into a deep state and use some techniques to clear yourself and particularly your heart, third eye and crown, then elevate yourself energetically.
Some techniques you might employ are: imagine you are climbing golden stairs all the way up to the clouds. Then continue climbing til you emerge out the other side of the clouds. Imagine a beautiful garden there with a sacred meeting place.
Once you feel calm and relaxed it’s time to call your guides, higher self, soul self, angels or whomever comes to mind. Call them to you. You might call out (just in your head) once or twice. Then ask for their help with chaneling your higher self.
Once you’ve requested help, let it go. Focus back on your breathing and just assume that help is there for you.
Then state to the universe (or to yourself or whomever) that you are connecting into your higher self for help, guidance and wisdom. Once again, assume this connection has occurred. Even if you’re unsure whether a connection has been made, thank all around you for the assistance they have offered you. This will help to strengthen your own connection.
Now, time for questions.
You can start with some closed questions, such as: Am I connected into my higher self now? Are my guides with me? Can you help my connection even further?
Just go with whatever response feels good. Once you have done a few yes or no questions, move on.
Ask some open questions such as: What do I need to know right now? Or, what is blocking me from connecting?
Then use your imagination. Pause once you’ve asked a question and allow for something to come up. It may take a few seconds so try to stay in a relaxed focus. Using your breath helps too. Just take big deep breaths and stay quiet.
Most people, when they’re starting out, will hear the response in their own voice. This is where a little faith is required. Just go with it, even if it feels as though you’re just talking to yourself or you’re making it all up.
If you wait til you’re 100% sure you’re channeling then you’ll probably never get there. Our imagination is the key which opens the door and leads the way.
How do I know if I’m really channeling?
The convincers that you’ve channeled usually come in the quality of the content you’ve received. And you might not even realise the wisdom of your conversation until afterwards. So just talk. Talk to yourself, your higher power, whatever it may be. Just talk for a while and see what comes up.
You can grab a pen, and opening your eyes slightly, write down whatever comes. Or I like to use a recording app on my phone and hit record. Then I talk freely, knowing I don’t have to think about it too much or pay too much attention because it’s all recorded.
You might surprise yourself when you listen back to it!
‘Cos you definitely won’t channel if you don’t even try.
For a long time I was sure I was just making it up, but the answers that I would receive would be so helpful and insightful, offering me a perspective I hadn’t seen yet, that it encouraged me to continue pursuing it.
It gets easier, but you’ve just got to go with it for a while first.
Have fun angels!
