It is one form of intuition. Intuition is a mental process in which we get information directly into the mind without using common sensory inputs, sense, or memories.
In channeling, a person becomes a strait or canal, through which he or she usually receives, in the form of votes, information whose basis cannot be found in an individual's life history.
The first therapeutic step is to find a positive framework, help with the fear of pathology. Often it is important to find a way to prevent the influence of these visitors from spreading to the experience of control by these mostly friendly beings. Borders learning helps to define those who I don't want to allow me to visit. It may be important to define the time when I do want and when I do not. For ease of understanding, it is possible to use metaphors of visitors who ring our house door, and we must distinguish who we invite and who we refuse to enter.
Channeling is an important element of learning in all cultures. It was involved in writing books such as the Book of Mormon, the Koran, some parts of the Bible. The best-known book written by direct communication is The Miracle Course (92). At present, another well-known book of Emanuel has been translated: The Message from Spiritual Worlds, or Talks to God (Walsh, 1997).
We also include communication with someone we can call an inner guide, a spiritual mentor. It is a form of trance, an ecstatic experience, which is perceived as a direct personal experience of inner guidance.

In some transpersonal experiences, some may encounter beings who are interested in a personal relationship and are a guide, teacher, protector, or simply a suitable source of information. They are usually perceived as being without bodies, superhuman creatures or deities existing at a higher level of consciousness, endowed with extraordinary wisdom.
Sometimes they have a completely personal appearance, sometimes they appear as radiant sources of light, sometimes without any form, and their presence is only felt. They usually address their messages to the recipient in the form of direct thought transmission or other non-sensory means. Sometimes communication takes the form of a verbal message.
A particularly interesting phenomenon in this category is channeling, which has attracted particular attention of the public and the mass media in recent years. During that process, the person transmits messages that may have entered their consciousness from an external source, speaking in a trance, using automatic writing, or repeating telepathically communicated thoughts.
Channeling plays a very important role in human history. Spiritual doctrines of this origin were writings of extraordinary cultural significance and authority, such as the Old Indian Vedas, the Koran, and the Book of Mormon.
Such experiences can trigger a serious crisis mainly because they are often highly reliable and high-quality information obtained from a very good source, regardless of its nature. Occasionally, channeling repeatedly provides accurate information on items that the person has never encountered. The experience of such a phenomenon is then considered undeniable evidence of the existence of spiritual facts, which can lead to serious philosophical confusion among supporters and offspring of the conventional scientific worldview.
Another source of problems stems from the fact that we usually perceive spiritual guides as beings with a high level of consciousness development, extraordinary intelligence, and exceptional moral integrity. This leads to inflation of the ego by the concerned recipient: the fact that he/she was chosen for a special mission, sees evidence of its superiority. Jon Klim's book Channeling provides an excellent source of information on the subject.
