These channelled messages are from many sources and the writers/speakers are from various walks of life, but the words that are brought forth are so full of love, joy, beauty and encouragement that it makes no difference if you believe that the words are from non-physical beings or not. The pure wisdom of the truth that resonates with your being makes it irrelevant where they are from... as we are all ONE.
Over the years I have read lots of channelled texts and messages and I have found that, for me, they contain the greatest wisdom and understanding of life and spirituality. All of the channelled messages on this site are from channellers that resonate with me.
Some of the messages on this site are from well-known Highly Evolved Spiritual Beings such as Jesus in A Course In Miracles, others are from lesser known Beings such as Seth channelled through Jane Roberts. There are messages from groups of entities such as Abraham channelled through Esther Hicks and also several from God through Eileen Caddy and Neale Donald Walsh.
There are several channellers of The Galactic Federation Of Light, (extra-terrestrial beings of love and light) mainly Blossom Goodchild and Mike Quinsey who channels SaLuSa. There are also channelled messages from the future self of Darryl Anka called Bashar who comes from Essassani, which means 'place of light.'
The common depiction of channelling is that a person leaves their body and lets a spirit or other non-physical being speak through them. Although this is true for some channellers it is rather limiting in its view. It is also feared and ridiculed by some people who are unable to open their minds to other possibilities. This has been purposefully taught by mainstream education, religion and society to limit us having the ability to reach our full potential. Abraham-Hicks, my personal favourite, doesn't use the term 'channeling' because of its limiting and negative association.
There are some people who have a 'known' source from what they receive and know for certain that they are channelling because they go through a process which prepares them for the experience, much like turning on a radio and then tuning it in to hear a certain 'channel.'
Through what I have learned and my own experiences I believe that channelling is a natural ability of us all.
We are Spiritual Beings in a human body and there are times when our mind and body are more in tune with our Spirit or Higher Self than at others. When we are more in alignment with our Higher Self the energy of love flows through us freely, we are bringing through, or channelling, our thoughts, words and actions from our true Spiritual Selves, unhindered by negative emotions and conditions. It is easy to know when you are aligned with your Higher Self as you will feel... Love, Joy, Bliss, Happiness, Excitement, Passionate or any other high-end positive emotion, also it can affect our perception of time, either making it disappear or giving us a glimpse of the eternal NOW moment.
As ultimately we are all ONE, it isn't then much of a jump to understand that if we are Spirit, linked to our Higher Spiritual Self, then we are also capable of letting the flow of loving energy from another part of 'OurSelves' flow through the physical apparatus that we control.
Channelling has always been used by people of all continents and races and there are thousands of documented incidents throughout early history.
In Ancient Egypt one of the well-known channellers and a visionary was Pharaoh Akhnaton (Amenhotep IV) who ruled from 1378 BC to 1362 BC, he was also one of the earliest proponents of monotheism (a belief in one God).
From around 2000 BC to 300 BC in Ancient Greece, channelling was used by Oracles who were people that went into trance to access information from beyond human consciousness. They also had a Pythia, who was a Priestess who brought messages through from the God that controlled her.
Some of early histories famous characters supported channelling. Pythagoras was known to have held seances. Socrates spoke of 'the special gift of heaven', and Plato described prophecy as 'the noblest of arts.'
Joan of Arc was one who received harsh treatment for speaking about her abilities as so many others have been persecuted throughout history.
Swedish scientist Emanuel Swedenborg, born in 1688, began to have channeled visions in his fifties and went on to write about life outside the body.
One of the most famous of all channellers was American Edgar Cayce, born in 1877, who was nicknamed 'The Sleeping Prophet.' Edgar was a medical diagnostician and prophet. There is a whole library of thousands of his psychic readings in Virgina and many books have been written about him. Another interesting thing is that David Wilcock, born in 1973 is believed to be the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce. David is a lecturer, author and film maker who has had prophetic dreams that have come true, he also looks amazingly like Edgar Cayce!
Even today there are many people who will not accept that channelling is possible or that it is only the work negative entities. Some will never open their minds to the possibility, but others will become aware of the unlimited source of love and wisdom that channelling can supply. Of course, as in the physical world, there are negative energies as well as positive, but any good channeller or channeled being will state that nothing they say should be considered the truth unless it resonates with your own self, always use your own natural ability to discern what is YOUR truth.
I wasn't sure which spelling to choose, but as I am from England, I decided to mainly use the English spelling of channelled rather than the American which only uses the one 'L.' You may find the odd 'channeled' here and there though just to mix it up a bit!
