We’ve all seen examples of channels such as Kryon and Abraham-Hicks, but it seems more and more people are tuning into their own guidance each day, accessing the Universal mind in their daily activities. This might lead to the question, ‘how do I know if I’m channelling?’ While it seems like a strange question, channelling can be a very uncertain and unsettling thing, especially the first few times it happens. You might just think you heard or read the information somewhere, or that you made it up.
Here are a few potential indicators of a channelling experience:
∞ You may feel incredibly emotional, either during or after information is revealed. This is related to the residue of any ‘lower-vibrational’ emotions that may be in your physical body at the time of the channel. They are pushed up and out by the higher frequencies that come through you.
∞ You may write or speak about topics you don’t fully understand. Sometimes the information that comes through can be confusing, because consciously, you haven’t caught up with it yet. Chances are, the lessons in the channelling will come clear to you within a few weeks. It’s important to trust the words that come through, without adding your own rational interpretations to them (as much as possible).
∞ You don’t know HOW you know, but you just know that what comes out is unquestionably true.
∞ You will find others have written similar things or about similar topics, which can be great confirmation that you’re tuning into the energy of a collective consciousness.
∞ Your voice or accent may change, or if you’re writing you may find you use fewer contractions and more archaic forms of language.
∞ You may be intending to write or speak about one thing, and your words are suddenly guided or directed to a completely different topic.
∞ While you are speaking or writing, you feel energised and connected like you’ve never felt before. It may be hard to keep up with the flow of the words, for they are coming so rapidly you can barely contain them in 3-D media.
∞ When you read over or listen to your work afterwards, you may feel a sense of disconnect from it, and an awe that you actually said/wrote that. (‘Hey, I wrote that? It’s really good!’).
∞ You will find that people connect to your words in a whole new way, as if you answered a question that they hadn’t yet formulated. This is further evidence that you are tuning into the Universal mind.
The experience is meant to be joyful and to provide a way to connect with your guides, Higher Self and the collective consciousness more intimately. It’s important for different people to write and speak what they hear because each of us presents the information in a unique way. Through our own experiences, we filter the knowledge that’s channelled, and our voice might be the one that provides the key for someone who had heard the information in seventeen different ways before.
As you play with the process, it becomes easier and clearer. Your guides might reveal themselves to you by name or make it clear that they are part of a larger collective. They may ask you to make it a regular thing, or you might prefer to use their help to write about topics you feel passionate about. If you feel frustrated by an inability to connect after the initial channelling, don't chase the experience, but maintain a high vibration and allow it to come to you. Continue to write, speak and create, knowing that the more you do so, the more opportunities you provide yourself to access the Universal mind. Most importantly, enjoy it!
