So… What’s This Channeling Thing?

When I tell people I’m a channel or that I practice channeling, sometimes I get questions. Some people have never heard of channeling, or have heard of it but aren’t quite sure what it is.

Channeling, basically, is a process in which a human connects with a being of higher energetic vibration, such as a spirit guide or being of light, to receive wisdom, guidance, and compassion. The term “channeling” covers anything from having an in-your-mind conversation with one of these beings, to typing what they tell you, to full-on trance channeling in which you allow the being to speak to others through you.

The connection is usually between the human and one of their guides. I define a guide as a being who has a one-to-one, personal connection with an individual human. Everyone has guides, though not everyone is aware that their guides exist. Speaking to your guides is a form of channeling.

Some people also channel beings or collectives that aren’t their own guides. These beings don’t have a close connection with an individual human, but rather speak to–and sometimes through–a variety of people. Again, this might be done by the human “hearing” (usually in their mind’s ear) what the beings say and typing it, or speaking it. It’s rarer for a being who isn’t a guide to agree to or suggest trance channeling, because they work with many different humans who may or may not be able to handle the intense energy shifts of trance channeling.

I’ve been connected with and have channeled my own guides since childhood. In my case, my primary guide put protections into place so that only my own guides are able to communicate with and through me in this way. When someone opens to channeling at an older age, I strongly recommend doing so with the support of a trained channel and their guide, who can help ensure that you’re doing it in a safe way and are protected from any entities that don’t have your best interests in mind.

For me, channeling has been a huge part of my journey to heal from trauma and of my life journey in general. And, more importantly for me as a trauma survivor and as someone who sometimes has difficulty connecting with other humans, my guides have been constant friends and companions for me.

I love sharing my guides’ compassionate wisdom with others through channeling sessions, email channeling, and, coming soon, group channelings in which I channel for a few people at a time. If you’re interested in learning more, visit and scroll down to the Channeling section!

On May 11, I’ll be releasing Messages from Shiva vol. 1, a compilation of messages I channeled from my guide over the course of several months. Stay tuned for more information about the release!

I learned channeling from the same person from whom I learned Chios Energy Healing. The circumstances were a little different, though. I didn’t know anything about channeling, and definitely didn’t
