To simplify it: It is bringing in the energies and messages of a higher source. This can be your higher self, your Spirit Guides, Spirit (God), Faeries, Angels, Ascended Masters, etc.
When you do an oracle card reading or tarot reading, you are bringing in that energy, assuming you are listening to your intuition and higher self. So yes, basically anyone and everyone can channel to a certain degree. However, there are different levels (so to speak) of channeling.
When I first had my most extreme (or obvious) channeling, it was a Faery coming through as I wrote. I found it easiest to write as I could let my head get out of the way and just let the words flow. I was writing with pen and paper and it was pretty incredible. After that I found I can do it just as well typing on my phone.
And in fact, prior to that, and maybe a year before, I had discovered channeling. At that time I wasn’t aware of what I was doing until after, but I channeled a message for a friend whose mother was going through a difficult time. I just had all this information flow into me and I started typing it on my phone. As I typed more came through. It was incredible but I had no clue what was happening. I researched channeling and discovered more information. The information I’m sharing here is all from personal experience as information about channeling varies greatly and it gets overwhelming.
Here are some tips:
- Get your head out of the way! What you want is for Spirit (Guides, Angels, Faeries, Dragons, etc) coming through and not have that barrier of your brain popping in and second guessing everything.
- Practice! Practice! Practice!
- Try different methods. Writing, speaking, doing art, etc.
- Get your ego out of the way (which is similar to getting your head out of the way).
Before channeling I try to remove any distractions. I ground myself and do a little prayer asking for the information to come through clearly for me to translate and not let my own thoughts and opinions come into play. I ask for protection and only the highest good to come through and then I move my vibration up to be able to meet the vibration of whoever I am channeling. I do this through breath work.
I hope this has provided you with some good information to get started on your own. One more thing, don’t overthink it! It’s important to ‘let go’ when channeling, which can be the hardest thing to do.
I wish you the best of luck.
