I was invited to facilitate a small home channelling group of eight lightworker members. Eight is the perfect number for a home group because it was the size of a typical traditional family. One of our members had a vision of a white headed eagle riding on rising thermals. The Bald Eagle, emblem of the US, was on the brink of extinction due to hunting, but, due to protective measures, it is now off the danger list. The bird has 7000 feathers, can live for 30 years and mates for life. They have been seen flying five miles above the Earth and, when swooping, can reach 100 mph. They are sacred messengers to the Choctaw and to the Pawnee; they are respected because they are fiercely protective to their young. The Lakota give the feather to someone who achieves an important task for the community and the feathers are used in the Sun Dance by the medicine men of the Plains who direct healing to those who are unwell.
All members saw colours as healing symbols: yellow, blues and greens; lavender, periwinkle and amethyst. Consider feathers of a bird’s plumage and fish swimming around a coral reef, sunrises and sunsets, the Northern lights and the colours of flowers and jewels, put these together and lace them with gold.
The messages channelled from our group were: ‘Love protests against war’; ‘Be still – love conquers all’; ‘Speak your truth’; ‘True love is a bond which cannot be severed’; ‘Be one in the light - seek unity not division’; ‘Come together in unity of purpose’; ‘Give love and receive with grace’; ‘Each stone in life’s path creates a strong foundation’; ‘See the big picture’; ‘The message is too painful to hear’; In the Halls of Learning are many truths, seek your personal truth’; ‘Look within and discover your spiritual path’; We are not judges but Council of Wisdom Guides for others’; ‘If only you could see the colours of the spirits of ordinary people and animals, oh! If only you could see them, they are radiant and vibrating with amazing colour and light’; ‘We must fight for justice for those who cannot fight for themselves’; God sees into the farthest reaches of the soul’. Our group sends distance healing from the angels and ascended masters to the world from 10pm to 1am each night, please link with us.
Channelling is an immensely ancient ability that was used by many of our earliest civilisations. Prophets, sibyls, shamans and wise women and men of all kinds were able to access high level spirit guides for useful information to help their tribe, on a personal or societal basis.
The process involves not only speaking to high level Spirits, as many religions do around the world, but also listening for a reply. On a visit to Mount Sinai/Horeb, Moses channelled the 10 Commandments similarly other Old Testament prophets communed with the deity to gain wisdom also. The Delphic Oracle channelled the spirit of Apollo to deliver her message of wisdom and understanding to those who travelled considerable distances to seek guidance. Muhammed channelled the Koran from the angel Gabriel and joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion, channelled the Book of Mormon from the angel Moroni.
In 1847, the poorly educated Andrew Jackson Davis from Ploughkeepsie, New York State, channelled the physician and philosopher, Galen, and also channelled the visionary, Swedenborg and received messages about the Afterlife. Jackson-Davis, a forerunner of the ‘sleeping prophet’, Edgar Cayce, could diagnose and treat illnesses. He wrote over 30 books. In our time, channelling is increasing in popularity as a means to contact teachers of wisdom and understanding who have an important message to impart from the spirit world to our physical world.
During the late 1970s, Jane Roberts channelled the Seth Material, which included a large number of books with messages from the spirit. Seth, which made contact with Jane while she was using a Ouija board to research extra sensory perception. Jack Pursel channelled Lazaris, a being from beyond the Mental and Causal Planes and J Z Knight channelled messages from Ramtha, a 30,000 year old entity from Atlantis. There are many kinds of specialised spirit that provide messages for our world, including angels, ascended masters, alien entities, even those from the future who can communicate their messages. These are just some examples.
In 2012, people are concerned about wars, energy crises, civil unrest, pollution and other upheavals and many want to channel elevated spirits, like the prophets of old, in order to receive direct instruction, warning and advice. Though many channellers work alone, trance mediumship is something that is best conducted in a group setting.
‘The Lightworkers Circle Guide – A Workbook for Spiritual Groups’ was written by Wendy Stokes because there are very few centres of excellence in the UK that offer training in channelling and provide information about setting up a group and making the best use of channelled messages. Wendy wishes to support those who work with her book to create their own channelling group and publish their experiences and their messages on a blog, newsletter or ebook. Visit: www.wendystokes.co.uk
