What is Deep Trance Channeling the Way I Do It.



I have been asked to describe deep trance channeling the way I do it and here’s my explanation for what it is. 
 For years and years in the beginning I practiced to be able to focus on one thing exclusively and over time I was able to do that.
 During that time of practice I was also able to build up a certain amount of what I would call ethics in our modern world. Those ethics had to do not only with the ethics I was raised with, which is about honoring other people’s needs and showing respect but also adhering to the ideal of privacy so that when I channeled for others on a personal basis that their private information would be protected. 
 The way I was able to do this and have been able over time as I have applied is to stay totally focused in what I am doing which is to create the clearest possible connection of myself and the Being whom I am channeling and to not be attached to or even particularly listen to what they are saying through me to others for the others benefit - meaning the benefit of the person asking the questions. 
 I feel that the foundation of what I am telling you about my process must be based in ethics because that’s really what it’s all about. It’s about a dedication to the well-being of others while providing for my own necessities. 
 This is not a job to go into because you’re looking for something to make lots of money, it’s not about that. It’s about a dedication to improving the quality of life by providing the clearest possible information that is available either on an individual basis when asked by a person or on a basis that is designed to reveal what is, to the greatest number of people which has to do more with books, magazine articles and others along that line - these days perhaps videos eh. 
 So aside from the concentration that I had to develop to maintain that connection in the best way possible, I had to give up a lot of my personal ambition. 
 We are all raised to succeed are we not? Even in some small ways - and it’s a hard one but when you focus completely on one thing it is possible to set all of those personal ambitions aside especially if you remain completely dedicated to improving the lot of the life of everyone in the best and most benevolent way you can. 
 It’s true that I am unable to improve the lot of some over others - meaning it’s true that I do not make an effort to compete by improving say, one country’s goals or political aims or one religion’s goals or political aims, so I understand when some people, because of their politics or their religion, do not like what I do. 
 That has to do with their beliefs and I understand that but just know that my goal is to serve the needs of all beings in the most benevolent way I am able. 
 Now, I know you think I’m digressing but it’s not so for I am answering the question as it was asked of me. 
 Now, my goal then and what I have practiced to do is to make connections with Beings who have shown to me over time that they are able to provide the greatest wisdom that would be of benefit to individuals in their individual circumstances for say a private reading as it’s called or as I call it, a private session and also to be able to provide from their point of view, history and what they believe is so about the world and the universe and all life. 
 I have asked it to be like that rather than asking for the truth - granted others have asked in their questions to tell the truth about this and to tell the truth about that and while I have been raised to adhere to the truth as my watchword, when looking about in our society today, both locally and globally, the word truth has been so knocked about that I am inclined to step around it and say, here is what I believe. So I will ask you to accept that - or to let it go for I am speaking what I believe here today. 
 So over time working with the Beings that I have been putting out their material for a while, and before that others just to practice, I have learned who on the spirit level means well and delivers to the best of their ability, knowledge and wisdom that will help - and who means well and delivers to the best of their ability the knowledge and wisdom that actually helps.
 There are a great many Beings in spirit who mean well and who would like to give knowledge and wisdom that is of great help but they are not always so helpful - and others who really are helpful. How to know the difference?
 It takes time and practice. The number one means by which I know is the energy that I feel from the Being when I’m getting ready to bring someone through. 
 It is a process that involves the feeling of energy, the knowing and the coming together temporarily while I’m channeling. 
 I have asked to be able to channel at the deepest and most profound level many times because if we want to have profound truths, alright - there I used the word, in order for it to feel as though it is relevant and yes truthful it must feel that way because what thinks true or what is convincingly true is not true enough from my point of view. 
 When I look at history books I can see that a great many people have been driven by what they thought was true or by what they were convinced was true but how true was it really when you look at the results. 
 I have discovered that the best truth is that which feels true right down to the core of your being and if you want to know what that feels like simply say - well, “When I want to look at blue sky I look up during the day.” You understand? 
 It has to be something that is an obvious truth for which there is a feeling that there is no doubt about it. The sun is in the sky in the daytime. The moon is in the sky in the nighttime. Like that, things that you know are true. 
 It can’t be mentally true only, it must be physically true which means that you know it is so because you have looked in the sky for yourself - not only because others have told you that it is so, no matter how convincingly.
 So, given these precepts and others primarily focused on practice and dedication I have discovered who is able to share, from their point of view, what will help individuals and what will help many many beings and what, yes, is true. 
 I realize you may think I’m rambling around here a bit but to describe what is channeling is not sufficient. You must know, from my point of view, that I want to learn how to do it, yes - in the beginning eh but I also need to know how to do it well
 I read initially books that were channeled that I felt good about. I read things that were foundational elements of philosophy. I took a little philosophy in college as well so I got the idea of what philosophy was. Philosophy was a point of view, an opinion that was believed by one or more individuals to have an everlasting truth. 
 From my point of view, while that was a satisfactory explanation there needed to be a felt truth - a feeling that is true. 
 So I have always asked, when I channel a Being and when I ask for a Being to channel as I did in the beginning when I was looking for Beings who had much to offer at the profound level - I asked to feel a energy that I could recognize as benevolent, deep, profound and yes - loving because that has to be done, this sharing of wisdom at a level that is dedicated to unconditional love of all beings so it has to have forgiveness built into it. 
 It is in the nature then of such love that I have discovered the energy that I recognize that provides the greatest wisdom for the greatest number. 
 So connecting with those energies I bring through the Beings that I believe will provide the greatest wisdom for the greatest number and I particularly feel good about the series of books that I have been able to channel called the Explorer Race series and also the Shamanic Secrets series though the other books have appeal as well. 

 Read them all, you scholars out there, and make up your own mind - or feel into it and see if it has value to you. Or if you prefer, read one or just a little bit of one. I support you in your endeavors to find your own truth and to come to conclusions that serve the greatest number in the greatest way and in the most loving and benevolent way. Goodlife

More About Being Yourself

I originally wrote this with this blog in mind but decided to put it elsewhere. I wanted to make sure it was available for you though and that’s why the link.

Working With Students

It's good to have a plan and lay out some ideas when you start working with students* - teaching them how to channel or teaching them other things because it's in the nature of your work of communications with all this inspiration from these wonderful Beings that you'll get other teaching. You'll learn other things especially if you're personally interested in learning them so you might wind up teaching things that go beyond channeling, if you choose to teach channeling at all. 

Have a plan. Of course you don't have to be rigid in your plan but have some kind of a plan where you have certain things that are foundational elements. Such as, if you're working with a student, that you're both respectful of each other. You notice I said both. You respect the student and the student respects you. 

So communications are respectful though from time to time they'll get excited or feelings will come up but there needs to be respect and forgiveness needs to be there if there's ever outbursts - and forgiveness on both sides would be helpful.

Then also it will come up from time to time that you will want to ask the student questions about themself. This is to help you to know how to work with them and they must be truthful in their responses. If there's something too personal and they don't want to say then they can say that to you. If you need to know what it is then you can ask the Beings that you channel. They may tell you in some way what you need to know. 

The students will of course be asking questions very frequently and sometimes they'll ask personal questions because they'll just be interested or other students will and they'll listen if you have a class.

I'm bringing these things up at times like this because this is the kind of thing that can come up and very often you'll already have an idea in mind - what you're going to do, what you're going to need in directing the students but I'm assuming that if you're here reading this that you're open to suggestions.

So those are two main things that I feel are important. The reason it's important to write these things down and to make a plan with notes to yourself is that you will not always remember. 

Sometimes a student might approach you and is already well on their way spiritually and it's fun to work with them and you might forget some of these foundational principals and so it's good to have it written down so that you can remind yourself - especially when you get older like me :)

I mention this because people don't always realize that you are older if you're communicating at a distance these days and that will come up in our modern communication lifestyle eh?

So of course it's also good if you could have an assistant but for all of you, you won't always have that. For most of my time doing this work I haven't had that and it would be nice but sometimes even an assistant - even if they're temporary - great - if they're full time - great but not always does the assistant communicate with students the way you know that they need to be communicated with in that moment.

So you do the best you can and you are grateful for the help you receive - you know these things.

That's all I'm going to say today. I just wanted to bring that up to you since I felt it's important.

You Can Still Be Yourself

Now you're going to run into an issue that's a little bit annoying and that's that people are going to want you to be the Beings that your channeling or they're going to expect those qualities out of you. So I want to give you permission right now that you can have your own personality.

Now I know I've touched on this before but in order to support you from being overwhelmed with this I just want to say, once you get going in this work and get well established, sometimes people will want - literally - or expect or hope that you really are that which you are channeling. 

Try to remember and this is something you really could benefit taking to heart I believe, that there's a tendency within peoples to create almost like a hero-worshipping situation in which even though they might know that you cannot be that, that they want you to be that. 

So - there may be times when you will use your inspiration to communicate, especially after a session when you're still sort of in an altered state. You might sort of float through a question and answer period that you might have or you might sort of interact with people. 

If you're a Deep Trance Channel you're going to need to have a little distance - meaning that people are to stay away from you and not move around and to also be quiet when you're first getting started to come out of the channeling - so that you can come down, so to speak, on to your own level of personality - not that you're a lesser being - but so that you can be yourself. It's really important to allow yourself to be yourself. Please take that to heart.

You're not always going to be perfect. You're going to be a human being like everybody else. Sometimes people within earshot of you being a human being are going to be shocked or upset or judge you for that. They may have ideas in their mind that they got from other people or that they simply have come up with themselves that they expect you to be above all of that but in reality, just like others who have been placed on a pedestal - even temporarily - people may at times get disappointed that you're just a regular gal or a regular guy - okay? 

Please allow them their disappointment. Don't try and talk them out of it because in order to be accepted as yourself it is a good thing to have a distinct difference between your day to day personality and the Beings you're channeling - okay? That's all I'm going to say about that now.

Burnout Hazards

These days because more and more people will be wanting or needing the insights you can bring through, you may find that you have a tendency to work more then you would like.

I really recommend you set up certain hours* that you're available to do this work even though you may or may not actually have the work to do at those times. 

Now this is not necessarily something that has to be publicized but you can make it public if you like. By doing that you might head off certain problems that come with the work and that's that people might want to call you anytime day or night** because something's come up for them and they feel a pressing need to know more about it. 

I grant that there will be times when you will indulge that - meaning you will also feel that it is urgent for them to have something and you will channel for them for maybe 5 minutes over the phone but the problem with this is that they can either become dependent upon you which may not be good for them or more to the point since I'm speaking to you as individuals you might find that this becomes draining for you. 

You must be very careful not to get too involved in getting too tired as I've mentioned before because if you get too drained all the time you could burnout with this and by burning out I mean that you could feel exhausted all the time and you might not even be aware of why

So set up a couple of things, I recommend. Those hours could be one but also make it crystal clear that there are 2 days of the week that you are not to be called or that you are unavailable. You can pick weekend days, you can pick weekdays - it's entirely up to you. I would recommend one weekend day perhaps and one day in the middle of the week so that you can have time off to do what you need to do for yourself or just to completely rest and relax

I think that if you do that your body will feel alright with your work and your body is made up of Mother Earth and therefore has wisdom and knowledge that you inherit from the physical matter of Mother Earth. Mother Earth knows when to rest so you can take a lesson from her as well.

------------------------------------------------------------
*I recommend that you feel into the times that feel best to you for any day or week to do your sessions. Don't be attached to a regular schedule. Your hours where the energy feels like it will be best for you might vary.
------------------------------------------------------------ 
** It's important to have appointment times so you can prepare in the ways that are right for you to do channeled sessions for people. 
It is also important for the people to understand that these moments of wisdom and guidance that you're able to bring through will be best received by them at the appointed hour(s) because you felt that the energy was right for the best you have to offer to come through at those times for them.

Teaching People How To Channel Is Not Something I Do

Lately I've been receiving more requests from people to teach them how to channel or to teach them how to get in touch with their higher selves. This is not something that I teach to people to do though there are others that do so very well. Lyssa Royal teaches people how to do this in Japan though I do not know if she does so in the United States or elsewhere. You could inquire at her site.

I have in the past helped people individually, who were already channeling, to get to a deeper level or to be able to move on to a teacher who could be more profound and topical. I have not done this for a while though I am sharing other guidance here along the lines of my experience as a channel and providing advice to those who are already channeling.

I wish you well in your pursuit of wisdom.

Channel inside a circle of people? I don't Recommend It.

I really strongly recommend that you do not under any circumstances, whether you are a Professional Channel or working towards that, sit in the center of a circle and channel. That seems to be something that people think is really a good thing but it has hazards. 

Primarily it means that people will be behind your back or directly to one side of you or the other. The energies you are channeling may come in through the back of your head, the back of your neck, from the left side of your head or even from the left side of your chest. So I recommend that you do not have people in the audience to either side of you or in back of you. 

The reason is simple. The people who might be sitting behind you - might be sitting to, say your left side for example - they could have thoughts, feelings, all kinds of stuff go through them like all people do - we all have these things but the energy needs to be just right for you - alright - and you need to be able to say - it's alright to say this - that you need to have this and this and this in order to channel well. Not only so that people who are there would be able to enjoy it but so that you will be as comfortable as possible so as to be able to channel in the most benevolent way for all beings. 

It is alright to say that. Remember to state your needs so that everyone is clear and there is as little confusion as possible as to the environment you need. 

There is an exception, as far as those behind you and to either side, that will sometimes happen and that might be if there is a cat or a dog that you feel comfortable with especially if you get the impression yourself that they may be spiritual. 

Perhaps they will lie down and sleep or in the case of some spiritual cats or dogs support the energy of the channeling just by being there. Welcome them if their presence feels good to you while allowing them to come and go as they please.

Now the Beings you channel might at some point invite somebody to come up and sit next to them (you) but that will be up to the Beings, should that ever happen and it is not typical.
