What Is Channeling?
Orin and DaBen
Welcome to channeling! Opening your channel to the higher realms will create an evolutionary leap for you, for channeling is a powerful means of spiritual unfoldment and conscious transformation. As you channel you build a bridge to the higher realms - a loving, caring, purposeful collective higher consciousness that has been called God/Goddess, the All-That-Is, or the Universal Mind.

When you "channel" you access these higher realms by connecting with a high-level guide or your higher self, who steps down this higher vibration and makes it more readily available to you. Channeling involves consciously shifting your mind and mental space in order to achieve an expanded state of consciousness that is called a "trance." To achieve the channeling trance space you will need to learn to concentrate, get your own thoughts out of the way, and become receptive to higher guidance. In this receptive state you become the vessel for bringing through higher energies which you can use for creating good.

With channeling you can access all the ideas, knowledge, and wisdom that is and ever will be known.  You have an innate ability to reach these higher realms of wisdom and knowledge; you connect directly with these realms in moments of inspiration, inner guidance, and creativity. You might not be able to reach these realms as easily and as often as you would like. Guides assist you in developing your natural gift to connect to the higher realms. They do so by giving you a boost of energy, providing you with opportunities to grow in new directions, acting as teachers and interpreters, and showing you how to refine your abilities to navigate in the higher dimensions. Guides can help you reach upward in ways that are comfortable and aligned with your higher purpose.

Your guide is a friend who is always there
to love, encourage, and support you.

Your guide will encourage and help you to discover your own inner knowingness. As you continue to connect with your guide, you build a stronger, more open and refined, constant connection to the higher realms. You will have more frequent and reliable intuitive insights and experiences of inner guidance or knowingness as the higher vibration flows directly into your mind.

Channeling is a doorway into more love; the higher realms are abundant with love. Channeling is a connection that will stimulate, encourage, and support you. Your guide's goal is to make you more powerful, independent, and confident. The qualities of a perfect relationship - constant love, perfect understanding, and unending compassion - are qualities you will find in your guide.

Channeling can give you the wise
teacher you seek, one who comes from within
rather than from without

Channeling can provide greater understanding, helping you find answers to such questions as "Why am I here?" and "What is the meaning of life?" Channeling is like climbing to the top of a mountain where the view is expanded. It is a way to discover more about the nature of reality, learn about yourself and others, and see your life from a more all-encompassing perspective, which will help you discover the greater meaning of the situations you are in. Your guide will assist you in finding answers to everything from mundane everyday issues to the most challenging spiritual questions. You can use channeling for healing, teaching, and expanding your creativity in all areas of your life. As you access the higher realms, you can bring through great knowledge, wisdom, inventions, works of art, philosophy, poetry, and discoveries of all kinds.

We, Orin and DaBen, are beings of light. We exist in the higher dimensions, and our goal is to assist you in opening your channel to these dimensions so that you may evolve more rapidly. We have great love for you, and it is our concern that you grow and move upward as easily and joyfully as possible.

Through our book and audio course on channeling, we want to help you understand what channeling is and how you can develop this natural ability. It is easier than you might think, and because it feels so natural, some people have difficulty believing that they have connected with a guide or their source self when they first begin.

The information in this book will help you whether you are thinking about channeling for the first time or have spent years in self-discovery. It will help you learn to discriminate between high-level guides and less-evolved entities, and determine whether or not the advice you receive from a guide is trustworthy. It will show you how to connect with the highest guide possible for you. If you so desire, we want in any way we can to provide you with the opportunity to become a channel yourself.

High guides encourage you to rely
on your inner guidance
even over their advice.

As with all our books and audio courses, we encourage you to use only that information which rings true to the deepest part of your being and discard any information that does not. Trust your inner guidance and messages. You are a special, unique individual with unlimited potential. We invite you to discover more fully your own divinity.~ Orin and DaBen

Types of Channels and What is Conscious Channeling
Some people set aside their waking consciousness entirely when they channel.  They say channeling is like falling asleep, and remember nothing of what is said.  Those whose conscious awareness disappears during channeling are called "unconscious channels."  These unconscious channels may receive the energy of their transmissions at a soul level, but are unable to recall what their guides have said. 

Some people are partially conscious, and, because they can remember some of the transmission of words and energy from their guides, they are called "conscious channels."  These people are aware to varying degrees of the information as it comes through.  Some may have a vague sense of their guides' messages, but little memory of what specifically transpired.  Some compare it to remembering dreams.  Others feel very alert, receiving their guide's messages alongside their own thoughts. Sanaya and Duane are both conscious channels. If you wish, you can read about how Sanaya experiences channeling Orin in this excerpt from the Soul Love book. 

Conscious channels are aware of
what is being said by their guides.

Those who remember what transpires during their channeling generally feel a great richness that surpasses the actual meaning of the words.  They feel as if they are in expanded states of consciousness where every word has greater meaning then they have been previously aware of.  Sometimes the words are accompanied by feelings of traveling.  Sometimes people have feelings of internal shifts to higher vibrations.  Some feel very alert, receiving their guide's messages alongside their own thoughts.  They experience the richness of energy beyond words as they experience their guide's world and their own simultaneously. It is as though they can observe their lives and others from two perspectives simultaneously: their guide's and their own.

Some people think they are channeling a guide only if they are unconscious, but most channels are aware to some degree of what they are saying.  Lack of any awareness is much less common.  Many great and well-known channels described different degrees of consciousness while their guides were speaking or writing through them.  We only teach conscious channeling, for we feel it is important to be aware of the advice and information you are bringing through.   However, there are many ways to channel, and whatever way you channel is the right way for you.
