This is something that absolutely must be addressed directly if the community is going to move forward. While there's a ton of wonderful, loving, evolved messages that are brought to us through channeling, there's also a whole lot of information that's very questionable, to put it nicely. I've lost count of all the failed predictions and the carrot-on-a-stick type promises of amazing things in the near future. Then there's all the "behind the scenes" information that's impossible to confirm, it has to be accepted on faith alone. Then the really odd stuff... Archangels are giving me investment advice? Pardon the French, but that just makes me say, what the fuck? I can't help but laugh at how ridiculous some of this is. Channeled messages are supposed to be super-evolved higher-consciousness information, why are they like this? Well I've got a very simple explanation that brings sense to all of this: channelers are channeling themselves.

At first glance it may seem like I'm trying to discredit channeling, but that's not my intention, I want to breathe new life into it. I don't need to discredit channeling, there's plenty of channelers who do a great job of that without any help from me. When I say that channelers are channeling themselves, I'm not discrediting channeling, in fact I'm giving credit to the channeler. That wonder transcendent message of Divine Love? That was You! You brought that through! Isn't that wonderful?

But no, most channelers aren't quite ready to merge with their Higher Selves. That's obvious, because if they did that they wouldn't need to channel anymore, they'd just speak Divine Truth directly. They still carry around this illusion of separation from the Divine, so they can't take direct responsibility for the messages. They still don't believe they can be as amazing as they really are, so they have to attribute it to someone else, some Being that they can believe is that amazing.

So if they're really channeling their Higher Self, how come we get so much incorrect information? Well, the thing is, they're not always channeling their Higher Self, they often channel their own mind. Because the channeling is largely unconscious, it's difficult for the channeler to tell exactly where the information is coming from. The mind is great at telling people what they want to hear, in fact that's essential for the mind's survival. When the channeled messages start to ramble, sound like religious prophecy, or sound like a plot from a Hollywood movie, it's usually because it's just the mind making stuff up. It's a form of wish-fulfillment. It will often sound legit, but that's because the channeler's mind is appealing to people's preconceived beliefs about how a Divine Being is supposed to speak , dear ones.

Notice that when they're talking about raising Consciousness, the channelings are often spot on and very helpful. When they're talking about earthly matters, politics and predictions for the future, channeling is very hit or miss. Sure, they're correct sometimes, but given the amount of predictions that are made, some are bound to come true purely by chance. When you keep predicting change is going to happen repeatedly for decades, you're bound to be correct eventually.

So why so many channelers who channel Archangels and Ascended Masters, and so few who claim to be channeling their Higher Self? Well that's actually not the case, there's tons of channelers who understand that they are bringing in information from their Higher Self. However, it's not the channelers that make a message popular, it's the readers, and the readers put more faith in names they recognize. It's marketing 101, and it's unfortunate that it works the exact same way in the spiritual community as it does in mainstream society. Someone who claims they're channeling Archangel Michael is going to draw more attention and more trust by default, regardless of the accuracy of the message.

It's also important to understand that much of the channeled information is not a message from some Higher Dimensional Being to the whole world, but direct advice from the channeler's Higher Self to the channeler themselves. Things the channeler needs to work on, realizations they haven't quite come to. Sometimes advice is repeated over and over again because the channeler hasn't quite integrated it yet, though often this seems to go over the head of the channeler. Often the channeled message will even say, either directly or indirectly, that the being they're channeling is Themselves. Not all channelers are ready to hear this though, so it gets filtered out.

One thing that I feel would greatly enhance the credibility of channeling is for all channelers to take direct responsibility for what they're telling people. This should go without saying, of course you're responsible for a message that you put out to the public, but there are many channelers who take no responsibility for what they're telling people. That's irresponsible, it's the very definition of irresponsible, and yet some of these people get substantial followings. I highly recommend staying far away from channelers who take no personal responsibility for their channelings, it almost always seems to end in disaster. It's happened many times that a channeler will blame their own mistakes on beings of Unconditional Love and Truth. That kind of stuff makes me want to grab these channelers and scream some not very nice stuff at them. The channeler just needs to admit they made a mistake instead of making up excuses. The fact that this happens ought to be more than enough proof that channelings often just come from the channelers own mind.

A common explanation for false information coming through a channeler is that they were being influenced by negative astral entities. The thing about these entities though is that they aren't really real. They're negative thought patterns given "life" by your own mind. If nobody fed them anymore, they'd disappear, simple as that. Of course, for someone who can't see past their own mind, they may seem very real. A channeler is supposed to be more aware than that, and supposed to be able to tell where their information is coming from. A channeler is responsible for bringing in an authentic message, if they can't, they have no business channeling, or at least they shouldn't be spreading their channelings to thousands of people and claiming it's absolute truth.

Let me finish by saying I'm not against channeling, I feel it can be very helpful in bringing in messages of Love and Oneness. It can assist you in reconnecting with your Higher Self/God. I'm just aware of the obvious pitfalls and mistakes regarding channeling that the spiritual community seems to be making over and over again. To really move forward we need people merging with their own Divine Intelligence on an individual level, not putting a few channelers and teachers up on pedestals and treating them as infallible sources of Divine Truth. That's not the new paradigm at all, it's very much the old paradigm, that sort of thing is the basis for most religions.

  • @Piperon

    The volume of the music in videos must be no more than 30% of the speaker volume. Otherwise many people (including me) will not be able to hear the message. To me, those videos were nothing but a jumble of cool digital effects and a seriously annoying noise that I s'pose is "music" to you. The speaker voice however, drowned in it all and became nothing but White Noise.

    I am sure it was not your intention to kill the message in favor or special effects, so if you want something other than tech-head followers to your channel, you will need to redo those videos with the volume parameters I have specified.

  • This resonates as truth.

  • I wholeheartedly agree with this article.

    There are simply too much misinformation in recent channelings today. I can't feel the love and the simplicity, which is an essential thing to communicate with the higher beings...

    Thank you for posting such a beautiful message.

  • Greetings :-


    PLEASE everyone come and discredit my THE STAR RACES videos :-



    Even love it when you send a comment and subscribe to my channel.

    May the LOVE be with you always!

  • Here is a channeling from my higher self, the truth about peace world wide is simply this, there will be no peace until everyone gets tired of the violence and that will only happen if some major affecting everyone everywhere directly atrocity along with minor ones until people together are willing to take personal responsibility for war itself.
  • I never said that all people who channel are in their ego. I just gave the most common reason people can lose their way in receiving messages. When you're mind is closed off, you tend to not have the desire to learn. Receiving the correct information requires you to open your mind. If you have this ego that is too ginormous to learn the correct information, it makes it even more difficult for you to acknowledge you made a mistake. I again, NEVER said that all people who can channel messages from the Higher Realm are egotistical, but we can't ignore that possibility. One more thing, make sure to read every word I write; before you reply to something I never even said.
  • I like it man...It is refreshing to see somebody addressing this issue.

    I would like to add something. Our universe is an evolving critical mass system moving towards self realization so it means that there is no pre-designed trail to follow. Channeling and a good part of our "fantasies" about the universe are only "potentials", they are not "ways", the "way" of evolution is made instant after instant through the mass consciousness dominant. The dominant "potential" or the dominant "fantasie" become the scenario of our actuality, that is quantum physics. The job of the most conscious part of our community is lucidity, we must know that there is nothing to channel except the law of individual excitement. By being true to ourself and by following our indicvisual desires we go ahead and affect the whole universe. This is pure FREEDOM and this is what the Bible call "Meekness". Being meek means being fully channeling our true belonging, the desire is the voice of the Divinity within us and it is the only magnetic system leading us through the unknown...So, for me, there is no Higher and no Lower self, just the global harmony of a living system evolving through trial and error...The monitoring principle being a feeling of harmony and peace or on the contrary a feeling of frustration of disturbance.

    All my love to you, and thank you for addressing this.

    In the ONE
