Channeling transmits information or energy from sources beyond the physical plane. Normally, these sources are depicted as spiritual. They may be identified as angels, hierarchical Masters, guides, extraterrestrials, teachers, previous earth-incarnates, or even energies and expanded aspects of the channeler’s own being. Material may be transmitted during trance, unconsciousness or partial consciousness. The content may be spoken, written, or non-verbal and can be informative and inspiring.
