It depends on how “into it” I am. Mostly, it feels ordinary to me. I don’t go into a deep trance, though for a satisfactory, as far as I am concerned, channeling experience I should take a really deep breath with the intention of centering and calming myself and then step off the edge of a cliff. It is a surrendering into the experience where I prefer to close my eyes and just relax and allow whoever in Spirit is there to talk.
For the most part I talk with my guide Seth, though there are many occasions when other Folk in Spirit come through. For instance, loved ones who have passed on; my mother is a frequent Person in Spirit to speak, and now my neighbor Phil who passed this month. I get to grieve just like anybody else, but it is a comfort if not to actually talk to him, to know he is near.
The first year that I channeled was spent getting used to it. Voices came at me from every which way both loud and murmurings I almost couldn’t hear. They were audible voices. I couldn’t hear too well when there were other people or noise in my area, like if the television was on. They also said weird things at times. But it all calmed down eventually to where what I hear now appears to be more of a telepathic communication.
