If you happen to be a Buddhist practitioner, or have been raised in a religious conservative family, this subject matter might raise ambiguous or negative mental reactions. However, I will explain how the past eight weeks for me have included at least one day a week of working through the book, “Opening to Channel” by Sanaya Roman. I am also going to explain how I came to be working through this material. 🙂
If you had asked me twelve years ago, or more, if I would be pursuing the ability to channel high-frequency guides and light-beings, I would have told you promptly to go to hell. Because that was where I thought I would be going if I continued down that path. I could easily write two or three books about the bazillion different ways I have changed since then, but to keep this on topic and succinct…
I now know that one only goes to a (relatively temporary) hell realm if one commits horrendous actions. So I no longer have that irrational fear (this religiously imposed, conditioned belief that I might arbitrarily go to hell for having a wrong belief is now gone from my repertoire as it were). But when a friend of mine mentioned back in November that I should consider channeling my guides, I still encountered stiff inner opposition and resistance. I still had to work through layers of fear, false beliefs and some conditioning around the topic of channeling.
Nonetheless, I wanted to give it a try because something in my life felt missing or I felt a literal or figurative vacuum in my heart which could only be filled by something on a spiritual dimension. And this was after years of doing Buddhist retreats, meditation and practice. So I knew I needed something potent and efficacious!
So I went ahead and bought the book. Honestly it took at least two weeks to convince myself that it was worth a try. In other words, this process has not been entirely easy for me.
Anyway, I bought the book and started reading from the beginning. I have a tendency to try to read books from beginning to end. Rarely do I skip to the juicy sections. I think I like to “do it right.” And in this case, I tried reading from left to right, but eventually I would listen to my guidance and I did skip around a little. More on that exact process in a later post.
For now however, I need to share a little bit of back ground info. Yes, I will attempt to keep this short and sweet, but you can imagine that to go from being grossly averse to the possibility of channeling, to be thoroughly exploring and attempting it on a weekly basis is quite a turnaround. So I need to explain a little about this initial process.
First of all, back in 2002, I had my appendix removed. I knew at that point that I might have some kind of relatively unique intuition, but it kind of frightened me, when I had a dream that told me explicitly that I had “appendicitis” and that I needed to go to a doctor about it. Then, during the surgery, the doctors had to stop my heart as I was put on life support (which prevented obvious brain damage). When I was told about this later on, despite my recovering from surgery on morphine (and dreaming about rainbows and butterflies as a result), I knew there was a red flag when he told me that fact. But I did not realize the full extent of what had happened to me when my heart was stopped.
It took 3 years, almost to the day, for me to start having dreams about what had happened in that operating room. Here I was, nearly completely divorced from anything alternative or outside of mainstream knowledge, having dreams about having been out of my body, among light-wisdom-beings and then being urged quite forcefully back into my body which had been lying prone on an operating table. Needless to say, these dreams shook me up a little (back in 2005 when they occurred). It took several months for me to put two and two together and realize that I was dreaming about the surgery which took place in March of 2002.
Anyway, I share this brief anecdote because it is these same loving light beings and guides who I am starting to work with now. Back in 2002, I did not have a choice in the matter. I was a young man (at least in age and in body development, certainly not yet in maturity) who had been put under anesthesia and suddenly I am out of my body, loving life and not wanting to re-enter my body. But I did wake up in my human body and tried to sort things out.
Obviously my life started changing in wonderfully alternative and frequency-heightening ways, but the process to go from parroting your parents’ Christian right views to sitting on a meditation cushion doing Buddhist meditations and interpreting astrology charts is not always easy or comfortable. And most of this journey I have had to feel through myself, because let me tell you, it is the extraordinarily rare teacher or mentor who practices emotional healing, process-oriented bodywork, spiritual astrology, Tibetan Buddhism and now to add to this list, channeling his / her guides. In some ways, I see myself as a bit of a pioneer – and I am still on my journey of self-discovery and empowerment as I blindly navigate the waters of channeling my guides.
