What is a conscious channel?

While some of you who visit this page might know me and know how I work with Guides and Teachers in Spirit, others might not. So, I thought I’d share a bit about what a conscious channel is and how I got to this place.

“Channeling is a means of communicating with any consciousness that is not in human form by allowing that consciousness to express itself through the channel (or channeler).” – The Michael Teachings

A conscious channel is one who is awake and a full participant in what comes through them. Their body is not taken over by this being without a body; rather, they are a messenger, communicating what comes to/through them for the individual who sits in front of them.

You might have heard of Edgar Cayce, known as the “Sleeping Prophet” – he gave over his whole physical being to Spirit and remembered nothing of what came through him and that’s what’s known as an ‘unconscious channel’. He was quite accurate in his predictions and is well known around the world for his work as this channel.

You might also know Esther Hicks and her work with the Divine Beings known as Abraham. She is a conscious channel who brings forth wisdom and guidance specifically around The Law of Attraction. Listening and/or watching her in action almost takes my breath away because I can feel the energy coming through her.

How I became a conscious channel

spiritualSeriously, I have no idea.

I don’t.

What I do know is that writing is like breathing to me. I can’t NOT do it. I’ve kept journals all my life and somewhere in my 20s, I started writing letters to myself in that journal and then writing another letter to answer myself, as if the wisdom or the answer was coming outside of me. It wasn’t until later (circa 2002), I realized it was the voice of my Guides and Teachers in Spirit. (I wondered how I always knew the answer. Guess what? The call was coming from inside the house!)

I was attuned to Reiki in 2003 and that is where it all came tumbling out. I couldn’t put my hands on someone and not connect in with their team. It just happened. Since a Reiki session is not the place for mediumship or general intuitive sharing, I left that and moved into offering intuitive readings where I brought in Guide teams for the client in front of me.

The funny thing is, I thought everyone heard these Guides and Teachers like I did. I was all “what? You’re not having entire conversations with them in your head?” My friends quickly (and nicely) disabused me of that notion and that’s when I started looking at what it meant to be a channel.

For me, being a channel means that while I move my “Lisa-mind” to the side, it (and me!) are always present. In fact, my readings are very much like a chat with your team as if we’re sitting at Starbucks sipping a #PSL and conversating (as the kids say).

Working with Ascended Master Prince is similar in some ways and very different in others. He is more present and speaks more through me but I am always there and step forward when he asks or when I feel it’s necessary to clarify something. It’s much like being the MC of a show. I intro the performer but s/he takes center stage. (I’m always hanging out in the wings.)

In my role as a conscious channel, I’ve spoken with beings off-planet (and that was hella trippy!), Master Jesus, Archangels a’plenty, Spirit Guides of many, many clients and now, Prince. If I did no other work than this, I’d feel fulfilled because it’s so much a part of who I am at a cellular level. And yet, there is always more.

Ascended Master Prince has called me to a higher standard for this work and opened the door to a devotion and reverence that I didn’t have at quite the same level. Which is his work with me and all those who step before him. How can you do this with devotion and reverence and in a BIGGER way than you ever have?

I’m stepping into it because, like writing, I can’t NOT do this. It would cause my soul to shrivel up and die if I said no. (I’m not being dramatic, really.) He called. I answered and I walk forward willingly (free will is a thang, y’all!).

If he’s calling you, are you willing to answer? (Whatever form that takes for you.)

Something to think about, eh?
