Does Spirit have X-Ray Vision?

Why, yes, they do. Your guide can see under your underwear. They can see you naked. Do they care? No. Do you care?

Many times I have cautioned people who express the desire to channel that they will never, ever again have the least little sense of privacy with their guide. This is one of those items.

Well, really, are they even wearing anything? Why are we so concerned about it? Spirit is Spirit. They really don’t care two hoots about whether we are wearing clothes or not wearing clothes. My advice? Get over it.

It’s funny, but the first time I ever realized this little factoid about guides being anywhere and everywhere was as I was getting into the shower many, many years ago. This voice in my head said, “My God. You weren’t kidding. She is fat.” Right. Well, this actually brings up another point. In those days, in my early days of channeling, the guides were also jerking me around a little bit. They have a really off the wall style of teaching that lends itself to some humorous moments. Anyway, they generally don’t say things like that to me anymore, but I did get the point.

The lesson is that your guide has the most exquisite X-Ray vision so as to be able to see into your heart of hearts to determine where you need the most help from them. I’m not ready to skinny dip with anybody, but I’m also not shy anymore with my guides.

Actually, you will find the bathroom is one of the absolutely best places in the house to channel.

Forgive Yourself

Channeling is easy. That’s easy for somebody to say who already does it, but I do remember once it actually started happening for me after many, many months of trying I was amazed at the very small, very simple step I had to take to have it finally happen.

But, it had to be a true step. With channeling you’ve got to walk your talk to get it to start working. You can’t be afraid. You can’t have any misgivings about the process. You have to be the most honest and true blue person you know. No lies. No fibbing to yourself. Totally open and willing to surrender to the process. Being crass does not work. Wanting to live the life of Riley where everybody will wait upon you hand and foot does not make it happen.

There is a very fine line between wanting to be good and honest and genuine and actually doing it. The problem is that by the time we are ready to channel we have not lived lives of total goodness. Somewhere along the lines you’ve done things to other people that were not representative of your most shining moments. And, in your heart of heart’s you have never told anybody about these things and you have never forgiven yourself. That’s what you have to do. You have to come to the channeling experience a shriven soul. So, in the interest of working effectively, you have to know that what you are going to be doing is very much like what is going to happen when you die. All will be revealed and you will be held responsible for everything you did in your life. It’s a process of coming clean.

Once you’ve forgiven yourself and vowed not to engage in the near occasion of sin again things seem to move along smartly. This does not mean you will stay a shriven soul for the remainder of your life. You will still occasionally do mean and petty things. But, you’re either going to be sorry for having done them pretty quick or you’re going to have Somebody in Spirit at your elbow to make a comment on it.

What Did you Say?

One of the things that happens when a person first learns to channel is a period of time when they don’t trust that what they are channeling is really what is getting channeled.

It’s like, “Oh, shit. I must be making this up.”

What also happens is that in the early days of channeling your channeling is really crappy and you are making it up. What you need to do is just pretend that you are not making it up. Just until you are able to tell the difference between what Spirit said and what you thought.

You also shouldn’t tell people what you are channeling because it’s going to be way weird. Like warnings all over the place for people who are close to you (or not) that they shouldn’t be doing things or there will be dire consequences. Just keep your mouth shut.

What’s going on is that your buttons are being pushed in a big way and whatever emotional growing you’ve been ignoring is now being presented to you to deal with in a big way. Spirit doesn’t fart around. (Spirit suggested I use fart instead of the other word I first chose.) They get right down to business and if they want a good channel, a realistic useful channel, a channel who is going to be able to do good work; they want a channel who is psychologically well balanced. Like I said, first thing you get jerked around.

This is also why I don’t recommend people with psychological issues take up channeling.

Anyway, back to the weird, out of the box, first time channeling. How long is this going to last? About a year. It will certainly be euphoric for you. But, it’s also sort of weirdly wonderful. If you blab it around you’re going to worry your family, friends and neighbors. Also, if you talk about it at work your co-workers are going to be really concerned. So, just keep your mouth shut. Be responsible. Use your common sense. And, just enjoy yourself.

But, in the beginning you are making it up. It’s like Spirit moves in to speak to you via your thought waves. Sort of. And, it’s difficult to tell the difference between something Spirit said and something you thought. Sometimes to help with this they talk with an accent or with a particular cadence of speech and that’s helpful. They do that with me. Sometimes they will announce themselves with a, “Knock Knock”. I’m not kidding. One of them just did it with me. Now, here’s a rude motion. I caught a sight of somebody lifting a cheek like they were going to fart. Oh, well. Maybe that means I should knock this off for now and go to work.

A Question from a Reader

Here's an email I got this morning: For years I know I have had a gift of communication with spirits whether it be someone that has passed on from here or spirits that have never lived within a human body. However my communication is quite limited.

But when I woke up this morning there seems to be a girl in her about 20's. Its like she's trying to tell me something to do with my partner but because I cant see her or actually hear her I don't know what it is. And I don't know whether she is trying to warn me or warn me to warn him of something cause she cant talk to him or what. But its something very strongly to do with him.

How do I actually get the spirits that visit me to actually talk to me? I would love to know your opinion on this and maybe advice on how I can use my gift wisely and help communicate.

My Answer: Pick up a copy of, "Opening to Channel" by Sanaya Roman and learn the same way I did. I too had the spotty instances of contact with something other than normal reality. One big thing is to get over your fear. You've got fear of what is going to happen. That really gets in the way of talking to Folk in Spirit. It's like a jolt of electricity that affects everything you're hearing. All the folk in Spirit are trying to do is say hi. What you get is, "WARNING...WARNING...WARNING" How you are psychologically immediately impacts the quality of your channeling.

That's why I tell people who have a psychological problem not to channel. It just gets intensified. Also, normally neurotic people (all the rest of us) when they set out to channel will get their buttons pushed without exception. You are forced to deal with your psychological issues because Spirit ain't polite. Spirit will talk about stuff that you don't want to deal with. It is a tiger by the tail. And, very difficult to turn off once you've turned it on.

Was that Seth?

This is an email I got:

I have some questions about Seth. The descriptions that you give of Seth sound very similar to the Seth that Jane Roberts used to channel. Is he the same entity? This is not at all a skeptical question on my behalf, but true curiosity. I am sure you have been asked this before.

Also, when I was reading Seth Speaks, I could have sworn he was "around". I am sure all of these answers are available to me through channeling, and I feel like it is coming soon. Does Seth "drop in" on you from time to time, or do you only communicate through channeling? I ask this because of the times I felt like he was "around". I can't really describe the feeling. Well, I guess it turned out to be only two questions then.

Thank you for taking the time to read my email, I appreciate it and look forward to any answers you might have.

And, here's my answering email:

Yes, I do channel Seth, the same Seth Jane Roberts channeled and yes, he probably "dropped in" when you felt he did. He's a teacher guide and so has lots of students. If you look around on the internet you'll find a great many people who are channeling him and are even writing books.

You'll find as you continue with channeling that lots of folks will be showing up to speak with you. Just keep it low key in the beginning. I know that it's all pretty overwhelming. One of them just said, "Don't take any wooden nickels." Right. Anyway, the channeling for anybody who is relatively new at it can be sort of wild. Why this is, is because of a few reasons. One is that the channeler is new at it. Lots of psychic muscles need to be aligned for it to really get good and that just takes time.

Another reason is your belief systems are going to be turned upside down. The guides operate from an area of life where what we thought and believed before just ain't true anymore. Having those belief systems upset is a really huge emotional upset/growing period for the channel. This is going to trigger huge emotional reaction and consequent emotional growth. Also, the guides push our buttons, so while your belief systems are all set asunder they will also help you to stir your own pot of murky emotional crap and get that sorted out.

It's not always real fun but worth it in the end.

Also, something I've suspected for awhile takes place and that's that we are seen as real newbie rubes to Folks in Spirit. You've got your higher level teacher guides and you've got your ordinary Folk in Spirit who've passed on. What I haven't decided about are malicious spirits. Anyway, here you are, new at channeling and are eager to talk to everybody in spirit. Your guide politely steps aside to allow you free reign. Immediately you are hooked up with an axe murderer. The axe murderer does not present himself or herself as such, but to you seems only to be a really interesting person in Spirit to talk to. Right. That's when they start jerking us around.

My advice is to remain steadfast and talk ONLY to your guide during the first year of channeling. And, when it seems like you're talking to somebody else just say thanks for visiting and goodbye, and don't maintain the connection for too long. Just during that first year. After that you can talk to Elvis, or Ed Sullivan or Jesus with no problem.

Also, something that happens to ALL channels is that the information coming through is distorted by the belief system and by the emotional constructs of the chennel. We did an experiment once with a group of us out on my patio all channeling Seth. The "rule" was that Seth was going to give us the same information and we were going to channel it. Here's from one of the group: "Get out of Dodge as fast as you can. Buy your beachfront property in Colorado now. California is no longer safe and will be falling off the edge of the continent soon." And, here's what another person channeled: "If your higher self has determined that you are needed at the scene of a disaster that is where you will be." So, you can see that what was channeled was really distorted by the channel's fear. Nothing wrong with any of it. It was what Seth wanted to say, sort of. But, it really pointed out to me how we, as human channels, can really mess up what they are trying to say. Just sort of keep it under wraps for a year and it will all sort itself out and sound a lot more reasonable once you're really accustomed to it.

Also, your "gut instincts" are important feelings to pay attention to. Many times, especially in the beginning, the contact we have with Spirit is very, very gentle. It's not real obvious and it's our job as channel, or shaman, or Reiki practitioner or whatever we're going to end up doing to get a little bit more sensitive.
