(Today we are starting a new 5-6 series of blog posts centering on What is Channeling? This is our first entry into this subject.)My business coach recently was talking to a potential new customer, who didn’t seem to have clue to what business coach was; although he had heard of a life coach. She patiently attempted explain that much like what a life coach does for people’s individual lives, a business coach helps with a person’s individual business. When she brought this conversation up to me, we gradually got into a conversation about what I do: channeling intelligent energetic and inspiring beings—and she confessed to me that while she was familiar with various people who brought forth spiritual messages—she had never heard of the term ‘channeling’ before!!
Whoa! I thought! If she, who was familiar with spiritual messages and divine wisdom coming forth from humans, had never heard of this title for the role—then perhaps my audience hadn’t either!!
So what is channeling? And how is it different than being a psychic or a medium? Do you need to be psychic to be a channel? Aren’t mediums and channels the same thing? And if you don’t call them channels or channelers, what do you call people who provide us with messages from a higher source of intelligent energies? And who or what are these people bringing forth from anyways?
We’ll be discussing a few of these points over the next several blog entries, so you too can get clear on what we’re all about. While we won’t be able to go into long details, like say a book would, we can hit the highlights.
So what is the simple or broad definition of channeling? Obviously it’s a verb –and from the spiritual side of life, “channeling” is the art of bringing forth messages, guidance or inspiration from non-physical realms and dimensions, by a physical being (human) that is capable and open enough to do so. Now the ways, methods and means of this channeling could be through any number of avenues, including but not limited to writing, speaking, painting or even composing music. Many famous authors, painters and musicians have talked about their art flowing from them as if it was coming directly from the heavens. They have been truly inspired and compelled to bring forth masterpieces, often contributing their talents to more than just learned skill sets. And perhaps they did gain insightful and inspired guidance, which they unconsciously or even consciously ‘channeled’ into their work.
This then is the simple answer of what is channeling. As we continue our discussion about channeling in upcoming blogs, we will look into the more complex details of this fascinating ability!
