Five Steps To Channel SpiritChanneling is a natural way to be in alignment with our soul’s purpose on earth. It is how we can connect and get to know Spirit.

Spirit is a word encompassing all spiritual assistance we have and the Spirit realm in general. Spirit includes God, Source, Jesus, Buddha, Spirit guides, deceased loved ones, friends and family spirits, and soul mates.

Through channeling we form a close relationship with Spirit. We get to know and love them as friends and family without bodies. Spirit is always with us and helps us daily. They understand our purpose better than we do because they have all the knowledge about anything they need to know; they are also very wise. They can give us advice and open our life up to opportunities that we would never consider on our own!

Humanity’s main spiritual goal must be to deepen its relationship with Spirit. Then by thinking of Spirit as our nonphysical family and friends, just as we have a physical family and friends, we can take the feeling of support with Spirit deeper than our own physical friends and family.

When we channel Spirit, our mind moves out of the way and we watch it all take place with little interaction. We may butt in and make a comment, ask a question, or we may even get clear enough to have a dialogue with the channeled spirit. It may take time to get comfortable with it.

Open up to the infinite possibilities that Spirit has for you. Have fun! Every time you channel, it heals you!

Automatic Writing

Automatic writing is the best way to open and start using your intuition and form a relationship with Spirit. We can also call it inspired writing. Automatic writing is the process of inviting Spirit into your living creative space to guide you through channeled writing, where you channel the inspiration of a spirit through writing.

Always have an intention before you begin, a question or intention you want insight into. When you start to receive a vision or thought, just let it pour out of you by writing what comes to you on a piece of paper. Unblock your mind and let the words flow freely. Step out of the way of Spirit so you can fully receive.

Five Steps To Channel Spirit:

  1. Clear:

    Breathe in and feel yourself connect to your center, the spirit within you. Breathe out and expand yourself to create more room for the connection to your spirit. Surrender everything mentally (thoughts), emotionally (feelings) and physically (relax the body) that is not serving your highest purpose in this moment. Continue surrendering and breathing this way through the remainder of the exercise.

  2. Invoke:

    Ask Spirit in whatever Spirit form is special to you, to come into your space to guide and heal you.

  3. Ask:

    Write your intention or question down on a pad of paper or journal as you verbalize it out loud.

  4. Receive:

    If you were to imagine the answer wafting into your mind, what is it. It might seem like your own thinking and that is okay, just go with it and write it down as it comes into your mind. Many times the channeled information begins with a word or phrase and as you begin writing it unfolds into more detailed answers to your questions. You’re essentially having a written and verbal dialogue with Spirit. It may be a few lines to a few pages before you feel the flow. Then your verbiage and writing style may change, using words atypical to your vocabulary.

  5. Apply:

    Once you receive your information, the pieces that you resonate with, act on them.

The more you practice the clearer and easier it will feel. The journey to knowing Spirit involves patience.

Hi Amelia, Jason has a video on Automatic Writing here: Check it out! Quoting Amelia:
I just tried automatic writing for the first time last night. I mediated for 20 minutes but did not experince anything particular and what I wrote on paper seemed to still be me controlling it. I went to bed and now this morning by neck is extremely sore and I do not know why. Could this have anything to do with my channeling? Also, do you have any advice to make automatic writing not controlled by me?

i have no problems doing all this but now it sometimes happens unexpectedly and invointarilly on tests and because no one can understand my wrighting i have a scribe, the scribe usually says "you should have gone with you're gut"
#23 Ashley 2016-10-07 15:58
I recently went to see a medium, as I lost both of my grandparents last year. She told me that I am "a light worker" just like she is. I know that the lady I saw is legit because she told me things that nobody else could have known. She suggested I start meditating and trying to channel my spirit guide. I'm not really sure what to expect and have been a little bit scared to try. I have seen ghosts in the past and sometimes I see orbs or shadows zoom past me. Any advice? What might I experience? Has anyone done this and seen a spirit?
#22 Mece 2014-08-13 08:02
I would really like to start channeling spirit however I am having trouble calming all the thoughts that run through my mind. I tried to meditate and allow my thoughts to flow on paper but for some reason I am being blocked. Any suggestions?
#21 Rachel 2013-10-07 15:34
Ever since I was little I have always seen different colors surrounding me and I'm not sure if they are energies or spirits. Can someone tell me what I'm seeing?
#20 Renee 2013-10-06 01:21
What is the term or ability referred to when you get nauseated, fearful, & the feeling of dread before you're about to do something? I don't ever know what is going to happen, only that I shouldn't do it. I started experiencing this at a very young age & would tell my father about it. I would plead with him to listen to me with no avail. Just as I predicted something terrible would occur (fire, arrest, wreck, etc) He would of course say that it was my fault, that I had some how cursed him. It's kinda scary accurate. Is there anything I can do to enhance this ability or add different abilities to it?Any help would be appreciated. I have learned to keep my bad feelings to myself & have never told anyone but now I'm grown so I feel it's ok for me to explore this issue free of ridicule. Thank You

#18 Jason Nelson 2013-08-19 12:48
Comment by Jason: When communicating with spirit, please know they are pure spiritual energy, which means they are pure love. You have nothing to fear with the experience; however, if you are uncomfortable you may be projecting your own thoughts and emotions onto the spiritual experience, which can give the experience of 'evil' spirits. But what is really happening is the 'evil' is projected by our own mind. You may project any emotion or thought onto the spirit, get mad at the spirit or love the spirit, and the spirit will remain consistent without judgment: the spiritual being that visits you will always love you unconditionally!

What is unprotected channeling? How can one know if spirit is good or evil?
#16 dontae hammon 2013-07-21 00:43

Hi ever since I was 10 I've always wanted to become someone famous like for. Instince wrighting songs or lyrics are one of my hobbies but sometime I can't. Relly think of anything to right about not that I can't do it but I think that if I channal a certain kind of spirit like say for an exsample bob marley if he can play the guitar very good than maybe I can do it
#14 Jason Nelson 2013-06-14 17:56
Spirit will lovingly come to make contact with you but will never be forceful, unless you ask for that type of help. But they will never be disrespectful or doing anything against your highest benefit. If you experience anything outside of what I've described, then it is coming from your own thinking or another person, and not spirit. In that case, it is important to get to the root of the beliefs allowing that experience in and change them to more empowering beliefs.

Everything is just wrong right now from my brother the loss off my job and being sued by driven loans I have no where to turn but the urge to learn more about my spiritual self and get answers on what I should be doing along with contact to my brother... how do I protect myself and know if who I contact is not dark and hire do I clear my mind from my always worrying and control?

I have visions that are like a slide show and or slow movie film with no sound. I also feel or sense sprit, most recently I have been having a bout with something that really has me concerned. I hear voices that make no sense and I get this feeling of urgency/fear i.e. I want to run away. I feel this is an ill energy or some may say evil. What is the best way to push this kind of energy away? I have tried asking it to leave me alone to no avail. Any help on this is greatly appriciated.

#11 Libby 2013-05-21 15:53
Sometimes I feel a warming in my chest. And at night I feel hands on my waist and back. I get goose bumps on my arm, but only on one part. Sometimes when someone asks me questions, or anyone come to me for advice, stuff just comes out. Words ive never experienced or been through. Or if someone is injured I somehow know a way to help heal them. I get urges to talk to people and hold them, for no reason, like they look fine but it feels like they are crying out for help on the inside. Sometimes I see lights surrounding people, or chairs, or walls, just a white glow with little strips of color.

I dont know why, but I feel something right now. I feel like someone is trying to tell me something, and it feels like they are trying so hard that it gives me a headache.

How can I help this spirit to get words out of me, I feel them touching my arm and its prickling. And they are making tears come to my eyes. And I feel emotions that arent mine.

I would love some extra help developing my gift that I recently accepted, I had been in denial for so long about it. Please help!

Comment by Jason Nelson:
When spirit attempts to contact us, it will come through one or more of our four intuitive qualities as an inner perception: seeing, feeling, hearing and knowing. They may also contact us through physical means like blinking a light or a knock or sound. It is truly individual to the person as to if and how spirit is contacting you Emma. By using the process above it allows you to get information from spirit through writing. You may always reach out to me for personalized assistance with your spirit connection as well. Remember that spirit will ONLY contact you in a way and with information that will help you, never to steer you off path. So if the information you receive is helping you then I suggest to continue following it. If it doesn’t then look somewhere else, as it may be an unclear connection or understanding of what you receive from spirit, and you would want to use a better clearing and grounding technique for you.

Could anybody help me develope my spiritual gift. I have both seen and heard spirits of people who have died but I dont know how to communicate with them. I want to be able to help people by delivering messages to loved ones, I believe it is my purpose in life. The development classes at my local spiritualist church are unprotected and I don't feel they could help me and everywhere else is too far to travel. So I was wondering if I could get online development? I feel completely alone as I dont have much support from friends and only recently have i decided to do something with my gift and I feel I'm changing I think I see the world differently now and I dont want to lose faith but with no help I am finding it hard to proceed. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Since the day I turned 9 years old, Ive had an extreme amount of anxiety that ended up developing into agoraphobia. But it is wierd because when i get my really bad anxiety its when i leave my house (i know agoraphobia) but my reactions are different each time ill get serious physical symptoms everytime (Headaches to the point im screaming, burning pain, nausea, something broken, trouble breathing, always something new!) I feel like there's something there that I'm suppose to be aware of because I will get wierd dreams of people and things I dont know, that has to do with the symptoms I got the day before or the day after. I need help to figure out if whats wrong is really spirit trying to contact me because this is really troubling my life not actually having anything whats so ever wrong with me but my anxiety which i still feel liike there is more to this. Help!

Comment by Jason: Bill great feedback on not pushing the intuitive process!
#1 bill 2010-04-24 14:54
i depend on positive karma to guide me thru intuition, waking thoughts, and events/experiences that take place thru out the day. I never actually pray or ask for anything but I mainly think of things i think i need to be successful and create positive karma, but am always open to spiritual influences because they know best. The overall or long range outcome is most always in my or someones or somethings best interest. When things aren't working out, within short order, i push it to the back burner and switch tasks and revisit when the time is right...frustration never leads to anything good...later, bill
