The Illusion of Channeling

In the human realm there is a held belief that channeling is something separate from other activities and expressions of the mind. This notion makes no sense to the Higher Self. Let us examine fundamentally what channeling is. Channeling is quite simply a process of transferring energy/information (energy and information are really the same thing) from one vibrational format to another. This is very basic. This ability is not "special." You ALL do this. In fact, if all were not already channeling, there could be no perception and no experience of a "me" in relation to another "me." Indeed, when speaking in terms of bringing forth energy and information that is in alignment with "higher consciousness," then channeling can be understood to be that which is inspired by love, inspired by Divinity. However, even that perspective is limiting to your spiritual growth, because you are then devaluing the purpose and validity of information that may be highly distorted. Calling any information "garbage" is usually (but not always) a very low-level, juvenile attitude in which one refuses to acknowledge the value and service that the "dark" plays in their learning process. This is not to say that any particular information is "dark," but rather that when you judge any information as that which you do not resonate with, and you sustain a negative reaction towards that information rather than appreciating it for simply being yet another human perspective and opinion, you are then actually RESONATING with your own lower ego, your own fear/negativity/belief in separation. Yet, through learning what channeling really is, understanding its simple basis, your perception is expanded to include appreciation for ALL information/perspectives/opinions. Every word that comes forth from your mouth is opinionated, for an opinion is simply an individual perspective. Beliefs are opinions as well as "facts" (not Divine Fact, but relative, subjective facts). It is not one or the other. Beliefs are thoughts, just as personal facts, personal truths, are thoughts; beliefs and personal facts are the same. Your beliefs are your personified facts. Now, are not all your human thoughts channeled through your brain/receiver mechanism, whether these thoughts are "good" or "bad?" Thoughts, of course, do not originate from the physical brain, as they always exist "outside" of space/time as you know it.

Understanding these basic concepts, would one not then clearly perceive that ALL information, ALL energy, is funneled/channeled through the same universal process? Regardless of whether or not one feels, "Oh, I resonate with this; this was definitely channeled!" Whether you resonate with anything or not is not the point and means nothing to the fundamental nature of what channeling REALLY is, which is neutral and unbiased. Channeling, by this broad understanding, is not something special at all. It is the basic space/time process of creation. (It extends beyond what humans generally perceive as space/time, but this could be another treatise in itself.) All thought/energy/information is channeled, period. There is no real distinction here between the "Higher Self" that inspires this message and the personality that channels it. There is really but One Universal Mind here behind this illusion called channeling. This is where this message takes a slight turn, for although it was essentially previously stated that "This is what channeling is," from one perspective, all the while it is understood by this Awareness that channeling itself is but a game that consciousness plays for fun. Your minds never really switch from a "channeling state" to a non-channeling state. Such a concept is insane. ALL OF CREATION IS CHANNELED, in your terms. Yet, all of creation is a game of Universal Consciousness. A game in which there are no real winners nor losers. This being a grand illusion doesn't mean, of course, that your experiences are not "real" and "valid" to you from the perspectives that you have. According to your individual and collective definitions and rules, all that you experience is real for you, and your Higher Self plays this game along with you, albeit from a state of always remembering that it is all a game, a movie in the Universal Mind. When you, dear Truth-seekers, come to deeply understand this metaphysical logic, you experience a sense of freedom from limitations that is unparalleled by anything that the ego can offer you. You have a much broader, grander understanding of the nature of channeling, and you demonstrate your Self-mastery in a way that parallels the awakened state of being that your Higher Self abides in and AS. 11:11 symbolism, you SEE! :)

I'm struggling with this I have to say - Sourcerer are you able to clarify what your understanding of this is ? It feels like an "anything goes" statement which is not what I would agree with but then maybe I'm missing the point !

But I may have misunderstood?

Yes, every person is a "Gee, u r u!" However, the Real Guru can be said to be the wise Higher Self. But indeed, no matter what anyone does or says, everyone truly has a deeper message from Spirit beneath their words and actions, if only it would be truly heard, and that message is essentially a reminder to "Forgive thyself, love thyself, know thyself, and remember that you and I are One."

Hehe. Yes, I can clarify a bit. I really appreciate you, Belle. Bless you. I will say that the message doesn't deny the validity of the common, general definition of "channeling," but rather approaches it from a much broader perspective than what most humans are accustomed to. Remember that basically a "channel" is a tube, a pathway, and by this understanding of the original, general meaning of the word, quite literally EVERYTHING in creation is channeled from one vibrational reality to another. (This is simply the "law of attraction.") What humans typically do is create rigid, boxed-in definitions of concepts like "channeling," "avatar," etc., and create egoic divisions, saying "This person is special, has special ability," whereas the original root meanings of these words are often broad and general in scope to include everyone. "Ye are gods" is unambiguous, including all (for example, not just pertaining to certain "special avatars"), yet most people often hold onto their little, narrow definitions and comfort zones, fearful of expanding their minds. Yet this is changing for the better, of course.

Actually, as far as the Higher Self and the universe are concerned, from the broad perspective, yes, anything goes, or else it wouldn't have an existence in the first place, Belle. Everything has an EQUAL right to exist, you know. Negativity = channeling fear/ego; positivity = channeling love/Higher Self. Very simple. As for channeling being an illusion, this is because there really is no "time" nor "space," being that everything exists all at once, now, simultaneously, therefore nothing is really channeled. Only from a position of being an observer that perceives time and space can it be said that anything is channeled, but it is still always an illusion/delusion of consciousness. Even the Higher Self is an illusion; albeit a love-based illusion that points TO God-Source, whereas ego points AWAY from God, using this analogy. There really is no higher nor lower in the Absolute. Realizing this, this is why the universe is known by the sages to be illusory.

I love it when someone can pull together the energy and put words to describe it. I've had similar thoughts myself, but have found it difficult to describe it. I think that perception affects how we interpret the energy we recieve. Our unique spiritual and ancestral make up means that the entire worlds population could perceive something different from the same energy vibe. Thus adding to the never ending tapestry of life.

It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase that the world around you is a reflection of yourself. Maybe it should be the world within and without is a reflection of your strengths and weaknesses. What do you think?

Thank you for your insight
Love & light

Chris

Hello and welcome to Spiritual Forums, my good friend! Your insights are valid.

As for my understanding, in summation, everything is consciousness.

Beware ! The mind is like a chattering monkey ! It hates silence and will try to fill your head with thoughts. Better to cultivate the Quiet Mind through meditation and listen to the Silence.

THANK YOU for THAT Norseman!!!!!!!!! I am still laughing... great humor!!

And, Sourcerer... I see the big message being 'everything is consciousness' which, I fully agree with... The message and meaning that you are trying to reveal though is difficult to fully grasp as many 'channel' higher level spirits/beings/angels/guides... It is practiced and looked upon as something separate from their conscious thought because it comes from higher levels... So - I do get it in total - just tough to fully embrace and understand. When we do reach a consistent level of oneness with our higher self, we do not see things the same- good/bad/opionion.... we would accept and allow without needing to react as there is truth to it all... Luckily, I do not dismiss much other than references to ET which, somehow I cannot fathom and choose to ignore.... lol....

Much Love and Light.... Cristina
