I often read changelings and find them both inspirational and provocative. Sometimes the messages resonate and other times they confuse. It’s always a good idea to keep in mind that these messages are filtered through the 3D human mind and can be contaminated by ego or not so nice service-to-self entities. Here’s an excellent perspective posted by Will in The Galactic Free Press:
Thoughts on Channelings
By will – Posted on 04 September 2012
I’d like to share my observations about channelers and channeling, as there has been much controversy surrounding them. Channeling allows for some very wonderful information to come through, and it has assisted millions of people with their own evolution. For many readers, and the channelers themselves, it is the easiest way they have to connect in with the Higher Realms. It gives people inspiration, drive and direction and encourages people to go beyond their boundaries. While channeling has many beautiful aspects, it also has some limitations that people would do well to be aware of.
Channeled information doesn’t come through in English, Spanish, or any other language spoken on Earth. It comes through telepathically as Pure Thought, the Universal Language, and it’s the channeler that translates it into English. For most channelers, this happens automatically. Their brain takes the thought of a tree and turns it into the word “tree”, so it appears that the Being they are channeling is communicating in their language. This works quite well to convey certain understandings, but 5D Thought is notoriously difficult to express in a language that revolves around a 3d experience. Things can very easily get mixed up, both on the part of the channeler, and on the part of the reader.
Most channelers, despite claiming to channel beings like Sananda, Compte de Saint Germaine, or various Arch Angels, are really “channeling” their own Higher Self. This is not a criticism, this is a good thing, as the opportunity now is for all of Humanity to reconnect with their Higher Selves. It matters very little if you are talking to your Higher Self or some famous “Ascended Master”, as your own Higher Self is very much an Ascended Master already. In many ways, the channelings are part of the channelers own path to Awakening and the personal evolution of the channeler can be seen through the channelings if one pays close attention.
There are some people who follow channelers in the same way they’d follow some religion, believing every word that is said. To these people I recommend this: Connect with the Truth within you, do not become dependent upon channelers. If you can’t trust yourself, how can you trust anybody else? If you have no idea what is true, how would you know if someone else is sharing truth with you? The real information will lead you back to Your Self, it will assist you in finding your own connection to Reality. The unimportant information will keep you focused upon the “outer” world, upon finding some freedom in the “future” instead of re-connecting to that freedom that has all-ways been yours, in the Heart of the Now.
Channeling is not infallible, in fact, nothing written can ever be wholly True. Take what I’m saying here, I know what I mean, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get the same understanding when reading it. Our languages are too open to misinterpretation, mistranslation and too limited to really communicate Universal Truth. The words are like a finger pointing at the Moon, and people get so caught up in the “truth” of the finger that they miss the Moon. This is why it’s so important for each Being to discover their own Connection to the Truth, and not get lost in the words of others.
Ultimately, there’s no need to channel. 5D Reality is already Everywhere Present, it’s available now for everyone to integrate into every aspect of our Lives. Becoming too reliant on techniques like channeling to connect to the Higher Realms can actually hold us back. Higher Consciousness needs to come into every Moment of our Lives if we really want to be Whole again. So long as engaging Higher Consciousness is a “sometimes” thing, the Being is divided.
Channelers still have at least some ego, if they didn’t they’d already be in 5D Consciousness and have no need to channel, they’d just speak as their own Self. The channeler is usually able to go beyond their ego and limited mind, to channel in the Higher Truth, but not always. Channelers aren’t “better” than everybody else, they have bad days too, and sometimes they fall into the traps of fear and suffering just like other people. When this happens, their messages reflect it and often the channelers own mind starts to creep in. Instead of the messages coming from a Higher Source, they start to reflect the channeler’s own desires. Because of the nature of channeling, if the channeler isn’t clear themselves, they can start to be influenced by astral entities, and then they really start descending into fantasy and fear-based information.
The channeler cannot be separated from the message they are channeling, and the messages always contains at least some input from the channelers themselves. Channeling is more of a translation of Higher Thought than a dictation. A Higher Vibrational Being does not force their will upon anybody and each channeled message is a co-creation. If the channeler really doesn’t want to hear something they’ll either ignore it and not include it in the message, or misinterpret it.
Let me finish with saying I didn’t write this to discourage people from reading channeled messages or channeling themselves. I wanted to look at channeling holistically, and keep clear of the extremes that claim channeling is the ultimate source of Truth, or that all channelings are the work of “evil” forces. Channeling is still a useful tool, so long as one keeps clear of the pitfalls and uses it as a tool for finding the Truth within themselves.

P.S. Notice how often channelers claim they own the copyright to “their” messages. If it’s really coming from a being like Sananda, why would they claim to own the rights to the message?
