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.
