Channeled messages are messages that come from a higher source such as angels, spirit guides and ascended masters like Jesus, Mother Mary, Kwan Yin, Archangel Michael, to name a few.

The person receiving the message, the channel, needs to be open hearted and open minded. Getting out of the way and allowing the guidance to come through unedited is essential in channeled messages. Practicing meditation helps the messenger to still the mind, go within and receive the message from the higher source.

The intention to be a channel of truth allows the message to come through in pure form. There is no room for the ego here. It is not about the messenger. The channeled messages have center stage.

Wonderful World of Channeling

The wonderful world of channeling opened up for me in September 1983 after taking a weekly meditation class over the summer at Bella's house in New City, NY. Meditation was new for me and I practiced it daily while raising my 2 young children as a single divorced mom. Meanwhile my plan was to go back to college for a BA degree in education. One evening in September while reading my philosophy book I heard a voice say loud and clear "get paper and write."

The first channeled message that I received was, "The purpose of all mankind is at-one-ment with God. The means to at-one-ment is through balancing body, mind, emotion, spirit." The truth of the message resonated with me from within. Peace came over me and a knowing that the source of the message, in this wonderful world of channeling, was of the divine, an angel.

Then my mind was flooded with questions like, "What do I do with this gift?" Next I called one of my brothers, a scientist and shared the news. He knew people who were also channeling so it was very familiar to him. Without hesitation he asked scientific questions and the answers were channeled to his satisfaction and my relief. And so step by step I was guided in this new wonderful world of channeling that had opened up for me.

New Journey of Spiritual Work

A few weeks later the father of my 2 children died. The loving, compassionate guidance that I channeled daily helped me tremendously in my grieving process. The door to the past was closing while a new door had already opened for me. Guided by the channeled messages that I received I left school as I embarked on a new journey of spiritual work for myself and others.

At times on my new journey of spiritual work I wished that I had a teacher to talk with and to advise me about this gift of channeling. Instead I continued to go within to my inner teachers and guides for the answers. This helped me to strengthen my connection to God, trusting that the universe always guides me to what is best for me or others.

Learning from everyone and everything is also true about my new journey of spiritual work. Seeing myself in the mirror that is reflected back to me in my daily life allows me to continue to grow and develop as a being. Taking responsibility for all that I have created in my life ultimately sets me free to create more consciously with source.

As I look back at the beginning of my channeling experience I am filled with gratitude to Goddess, the angels and other guides for the messages of love, peace, encouragement and joy. The channeled messages have taught me so much about life, people and the Divine and especially myself. God/Goddess is great!!!
