The Life of a Channel: Full Circle
During most of my life, I've had a very strong connection to channeling. When I was an adolescent, Seth Speaks [Editor's Note: by Jane Roberts] came to me and I devoured it! For those unfamiliar with the book, in a way it's a holy grail of channeling, even in its barely edited and frequently confusing format. Amazingly, as young as I was, nearly everything that Seth discussed made complete sense to me.
Over the subsequent years, I would eagerly seek out other channeled materials. Emmanuel left a huge impact. His style was almost the antithesis of Seth's. Brief, poetic, and beautiful, it still contains gems of wisdom, truth, and understanding. In the late 1980s, I was fortunate to be able to spend a week in a workshop with Pat Rodegast, channel for Emmanuel. To this day, I clearly remember some of what he told me. There have been other influences as well, among them Barbara Marciniak, Neale Donald Walsch, and, notably, Pepper Lewis.
Wisdom Greater Than My Own
In the early 1990s, I became a Reiki practitioner and was fortunate enough to be able to develop a very large client base; thus I had the opportunity to provide many sessions. It soon became clear to me that during and after these sessions I would frequently start channeling. After the hands-on part of the session I always shared information with the client, and during this sharing process, I would often say things and discuss issues that clearly were provided by wisdom greater than my own.
