What is Channeling?
Depending on who you ask, you’d probably hear a different answer every single time. Get a skeptic, a believer, an artist and an inventor in a room and the debate would make for a great podcast.
This is simply because channeling is a practice that is often misunderstood and comes in so many different forms. In time, we’ll explain why the artist was included in the hypothetical debate.
Channeling.. So what is it then?
The definition of channeling, at least according to Google, is “(of a person) serve as a medium for (a spirit).”
While this definition isn’t completely incorrect, it doesn’t really give you the whole picture. The channeling defined above is a pretty good description of what you would see in most movies and pop culture though, so don’t fret if you’re surprised there’s more to it than that. The truth is, the definition above only applies to one kind of channeling, whereas it’s important to understand it from a broader point of view first.
Here is a more accurate, all-encompassing definition of channeling.
What is channeling?
Channeling is the act of completely or partially stepping out of your conscious mind, and allowing yourself to receive information (energy, frequency, vibrations) from an outside source, combined with the ability to translate these signals into usable information.
We All Have Channeled at Some Point
The reason it’s important to make the distinction between the first and second definitions is because we all do a little bit of channeling. Or at least we have at some point or another. For many of us, it may have been long ago as children. For some, it may have been more recent. But those actively engaged in the creative process are fully aware that sometimes ideas just come out of nowhere.
It’s usually when you’re relaxed or even ‘zoned out.’ The shower is a great place. Long runs are a great place. Meditation, getting lost in task and even right before bed or just as you’re drifting off – these are all great times and places for unintentional channeling.
When inspiration strikes out of nowhere – that is the most basic form of channeling.
And that is why we included an artist and an inventor in the example at the beginning. Painters, writers, musicians, inventors, philosophers, theorists and other people who are regularly engaged in the creative process will all agree that sometimes ideas and inspiration just come out of nowhere. Or maybe you see, hear, taste, smell or feel something that inspires something completely new.
While the creative process can be made to be logical, structured and systematic, moments of pure inspiration simply can’t be manufactured. For whatever reason, it’s hard to just sit down with a pen and paper and will a great idea into existence.
Have you ever wondered why that is?
Well now you know! It is because these ideas and moments of genuine inspiration are coming from outside of yourself. So, take a second and try to think of any time that’s happened to you. Any eureka moments in the shower? Any lightbulb’s go off while mowing the yard or doing yoga?
If so, you might’ve just done some channeling!
But Where Does Inspiration Come From Then?
Now you’re asking the million dollar question!
In our next post in the Channeling series, we’ll continue to discuss the other forms of channeling and begin to shed some light on some of the sources of information and inspiration like the quantum information field of infinite possibilities, also known as the multiverse.
