Who can be channeled?
- The usual suspects: Entities that can be channeled.
This article provides some information on the kinds of entities that can be channeled. I call them "the usual suspects," in reference of course to the famous movie, Casablanca. See the related article, How I got started as a channel.
I give some background on the nature of channeling itself in What is channeling?. In that article, I discuss to some degree the vast variability of it all, such that it isn't possible without writing a book to convey the scope of what channeling is. In the end, it can leave a non-psychic or non-channeler feeling a bit mystified. It is, as I state elsewhere, somewhat like trying to describe colors to someone who has been blind all of their life.
However, I can be somewhat more specific when speaking of the kinds of entities that can be channeled. Briefly, here's one list of the kinds of entities that can be channeled, more or less in order of spiritual awareness and development:
- Regular human beings, including yourself.
- Inhabitants of the elemental world.
- Ascended and enlightened masters and angelic sorts of beings.
- The god and goddess of this area.
- The god/goddess who created our god and goddess.
- Potentially more.
In this category we find regular human beings who have left their bodies (either through death or sleep). Fred the Car Mechanic, for instance, or your Aunt Elsie, or Albert Einstein, Friedrich Nietchze—if the beings was corporate on this planet, it can generally be channeled, though there must be a match of some sort between the channeler and the channelee for any message to get through, and the more filters a channeler might have, the more distorted the message will be. Sometimes, even, a channeler will think they are channeling, say, Albert Einstein when in fact they have picked up some prankster spirit (if they are fortunate, it is only a prankster, and not someone with evil intent). Much misinformation can get conveyed in this fashion.
You can also contact and channel yourself—usually a "future" version, though you could also contact yourself in the past and even in the lives that you are living in other times and places.
If you contact someone who is living, that is more in the realm of telepathy than channeling, though it is possible to channel a living human too.
This category includes fairies, gnomes, elves, and the like. Yes, they exist, in a slightly different dimension. So does Santa Claus. (And I mean that in all sincereity.) Some people experience these beings as what they call devas, though devas exist as a separate class of being: the conscious spirit inherent in plants, rocks, locales, and so on. Devas and the inhabitants of the fairy realm exist more or less in the same dimension and so do know of and work with each other. Normally, however, you won't experience your communications with any of these beings as channeling per se, though you might. The basic nature of these beings is that they are very close to physical reality and as such are quite grounded in and in a very real sense a part of that reality. Communications with them are more like the sort of telepathic exchanges that can take place between two humans who are in body, or between a human and an animal.
Yes, I know, this makes me uncomfortable too, but I know these guys exist, so I won't ignore them in this list. As far as I can tell, most, if not all, aliens exist in a different dimension. They do have some technological superiority, but this doesn't mean they also have spiritual or moral superiority over us. Remember this if any of them come along and try to mess with your head; in particular, beware of the "Space Brothers" coming to "claim their own." There are some who are trying to program people into believing they should take off with aliens if and when the time comes.
Note: I wrote this section of this essay in 1996, long before the Heaven's Gate fiasco, and that is exactly the kind of thing I was trying to warn people about. The "Space Brothers" do not, for the most part, have our best interests at heart.
Some people consider contacting the Space Brothers to be a great privilege or at least a potentially interesting experience. And it may be, for all I know. I just object to the underhanded trickery being used; I figure if someone feels they have to trick you into wanting to join them, or to program you into wanting to go, instead of just being upfront about it, laying out the pros and cons, and letting you decide, that this wonderful place they are trying to lure you off to isn't quite the paradise it is being presented as. Caveat emptor.
Anyway, the point is, you can communicate with these beings. Since they aren't exactly in the same dimension, I think this qualifies as channeling under my rather loose definition. Personally, I try to steer clear of the entire bunch.
Another category of entity that can be channeled includes those who are variously called the ascended masters, enlightened beings, and also, mixed in with them, the angels and such fairly-well-known entities as Seth and Lazaris. This category includes Jesus as well as a number of other beings who realized or remembered their greater reality while walking the earth, and who are interested in helping others come to the same kind of realization. Not all of the beings being channeled who claim to be an ascended master are such. For that matter, not all of the beings who claim to be Jesus or whoever are who they claim to be.
I'll repeat this many times because it is very important: Being able to discern at a very deep level the feeling and intent behind any entity's communication is a key skill to have while channeling any entity or while listening to someone else channel. There is a tendency for people to swallow unthinkingly and without discrimination anything that is supposedly channeled. They shouldn't, any more than they should accept and believe everything that is on the TV news. Listen to your heart!
Most of the entities in this category have particular areas of interest and affinity. For example, Seth likes to call himself a "Probability Master," and speaks often of probabilities and alternate possibilities. Jesus is very warmly concerned with the heart and with human relationships, though from such a high level that sometimes it can be hard to see the relationship between relationships and what he is saying. He is warm-hearted and has a wonderful sense of humor. Other entities have other areas of interest, and when a topic comes up when I am channeling that can be best addressed by a different entity, that entity will ask permission to move forward to speak on it.
As far as my understanding reaches at this moment, there is a god and a goddess (or a being who has masculine and feminine aspects) who are in charge of this region of space. Whether that region is just earth or the entire solar system or perhaps even a larger area than that, I am not sure. I believe it is the solar system. This god and goddess is in some way a part of or an extension of the god and goddess who created them.
It is useful and fun to contact this level of god and goddess. You'll get planetary information, globally significant information, and sound, earth-grounded directions. I have contacted an entity who calls himself Sol or Helios, and I think he is the god of this system.
If I have been in touch with the goddess who has co-dominion over this area with Sol, I am not currently aware of it.
The god and goddess who created the local area's god and goddess are the beings that most of us think of as God. At least, according to my understanding, which could easily (and undoubtedly will) change. It took me a while to work up the courage to contact God.
There is always another way of organizing this information, which is one reason why I titled this section "Potentially more." Another reason is that in addition to these levels of beings, there could be more. I'll get back to you on this one.
