What Do You Do About Stupid Channeling?

I have spoken before of how it is that the messages coming from Guides and Folk in Spirit are distorted just because we are human beings. Sorry, it just can’t be helped.

It does help if you are willing to work on your own psychological stuff. And, don’t bother telling me that you are perfectly well balanced. Everybody has stuff they can work on. It doesn’t mean we are a bunch of loons. It means these are our own lifelong lessons and can always use some work.

In any case, Rule Number One for people who wish to learn how to channel is to make the promise to themselves and to Spirit that they will work on their own issues as they arise for the rest of their lives. This does not mean that you will be working on this stuff all the time. Just when it looks like they are interfering with your life or with your quality of channeling.

How can you tell? You have to do it awhile and you will come to know your own special signals that it is time to do some work. My own are crappy drivers. It’s not that they suddenly flock around me like bees around flowers. It’s just that I no longer have any patience for them. They are there all the time. I just notice them more when I am on edge. Also, another signal I can watch out for is being really cranky and angry. Do I always do the emotional work that needs to be done? Well….not right away. Hey, I’m human and I have feet of clay. But, I do get to it eventually.

So, what do you do? There are all sorts of methods. My own is to find a quiet place. Dip into a sort of meditative state and ask myself the question, “What is wrong?” You get quicker at it with practice. It’s called Focusing. Look up Eugene Gendlin. But, this process will lead me into memories or into situations that are causing my own inner turmoil. And, I deal with it. How? Mostly I just feel the emotion, acknowledge what is going on. You can’t change the past, but you can change how you are affected by it. So, suddenly I am a toddler and something happened I didn’t like and I learned from that experience to do this. This, however, is the fly in the ointment that is causing my upset, whatever it is. For instance, be quiet. Toddlers are not quiet. They make noise. They are learning how to communicate. They are noisy. They ask questions. That sort of stuff. But, somehow I got the idea that I had to be quiet and now that issue is bothering me. So, I deal with it.

Did I completely fix my problem? Probably not. Maybe I just touched the surface. Maybe I’m going to be okay for the next 2 years. But, somewhere down the line I will have the opportunity to do some more work on the issue. Is this bad that I didn’t fix the thing in the first place? No. It’s how you heal.

Just pay attention and work on your stuff.

How does this help with the channeling? Making the commitment to get help, whether it is on your own or with the occasional help of a therapist, allows you to participate as a clearer conduit for the messages from Guides and Folk in Spirit to come through.

I also mentioned that just because we are human beings the messages are going to be distorted too, but like the guides said to me once they just keep trying until we get somewhere in the ballpark of what they intended to say. Also, they have infinite patience and make allowances for the distortions. Face it, as human beings we believe in different things. These belief systems affect how we live, how we present ourselves, how our world looks to us.

It’s sort of like painting. Imagine the Guides and Folk in Spirit are the brushes. We are the paint pots. I am red. You are blue. The other guy is yellow. Same message from the Guides, but because we are different colors the message will be slightly different from each channel.

When I first learned of this I was upset because I am a Virgo and a very precise person. I thought because I was screwing up what the Guides wanted to say I was a bad channel. Everything goes by the rules and everything is perfect. The guides have taught me to loosen up. Now I am more tolerant of how I channel. And, that is what I want to impart to anybody who is learning to channel. Just loosen up. Relax and it goes easier. Make that commitment to pay attention to your own needs. Don’t share your channeling with others for the first year because, basically it sort of sucks. It is wonderful channeling, but you are learning how, getting used to the whole thing and some of that first year channeling can be pretty off the wall.

Hey, I was Dorothy reincarnated for a few months there.

Hi Anonymous. I should know your name...I'm psychic, right? Well, names right now as I'm searching for you in a psychic manner are weaving in and out of my head.

I can't settle with an absolute certainty on anything but a European sounding name like Astrid or Gertrude. Unless you write back to let me know if I'm right I will never know for sure.

Same thing with channeling. You have to set the rules. You are the one who will say to yourself, "Even though this seems to be scary I have listened to the lady who said I could do this. She said sometimes it looks like it is scary, but it really is not. It's just that I am scared. I am wearing my scared colored glasses and everything I see through them is going to be scary.

"If I take it on faith, like she advises, the more I do it the more accustomed I will become, wierd stuff happening and all that and eventually it won't be scary anymore."

Astrid, that's what I've decided to call you even if that is not your name. It's so much more nicer than anonymous and, besides, I make the rules.

You can too
