First off, I have to say you can’t be alive without channeling, in the sense that you are more than a body combined with a set of experiences and genetic codes. There is a larger, more encompassing you, and this larger you knows itself as part of a larger, more encompassing Universe than what is typically perceived solely through physical perception.
One might describe it as channeling, i.e. bringing through, the aspects of the All, the Oneness, the Totality, that you came to present on the physical plane.
And these aspects may include a predisposition to consciously bring through, i.e. channel, a wider range of aspects, whether this be through the arts and/or channeled writing or speaking.
Don’t get me wrong – everyone has the potential to channel. And just as with any talent or skill, it does come more easily to some than others. And it can be learned and developed.
I didn’t come in “with the lights on,” so to speak. And though bits of psychic experiences did occur in my childhood, (not the dramatic kind, but more to do with precognition around, yes, food, and relationships), like most of us, I did not grow up in a society or setting that gave credence to the intuitive side of life.
It wasn’t until I was in my 30’s that this part of me opened up.
I was with a group of friends watching a videotape on interdimensional communication by university professor Heather Harder.
She was running in the 2000 U.S. presidential election and was motivated to create this video by the belief that if she got more people to learn that “talking to dead people” as she put it, can be normal and natural, her doing so wouldn’t seem so strange.
They were simple exercises, each begun with a brief, clear statement of intent, starting with sensing the energies of other people in the room, and leading up to channeled writing and speaking.
We paused the tape at each activity to practice, and all six of us found we were able to do each one, every time.
So I don’t think it’s so hard or impossible to learn. Yet I will say, I don’t think I could have done this too easily in my earlier life.
