Hello all! A fellow medium I respect suggested that perhaps my full trance channeling is a bit much for some people to handle. I’ve feared that for years. Now, in my defense, when I first started channeling in 2000 during a past life regression hypnosis session, it wasn’t actually a choice. I was pushed 110% out of my body and was like Horshack (RIP Ron) from Welcome Back, Kotter…raising my arm flailingly trying to ask questions or make comments. The 2 groups of beings that took my body over at that time did not let me interject to ask questions, much to my dismay. That is where I first learned about my life on Lemuria and the whole 2012 thing…which they referred to as, “In 12 years, your TRUE work is going to become important.”
Anyway, if I’m totally honest, for many years I have felt that if I wasn’t dramatic and let spirits 110% take me over when I trance channel…people wouldn’t believe me/them. It’s a credibility thing. Granted, I’m a SAG-AFTRA actor, but…as good as I am…I could NOT fake what happens to me when I channel. There are totally involuntary things that happen to my body. (Side note: I have seen super 8 1960s film footage of me under 1 year old where I’m sitting up but oddly rocking. As a kid in Rochester, NY, I would swing on our backyard swingset for HOURS because I needed the rocking back and forth movement. Until my 20s, I would rock my head left and right to go to sleep at night. And, when I channel, not only do my arms lock up into claws on my chest or do other weird things, but I also rock back and forth. It seems to be a part of allowing spirit to flow through me.)
In 2002 when I took a channeling class (After I “accidentally” took over a trance channeling public event I went to see as an audience member…and was flat out told by the channelers, “You need to study with Shawn as you have a huge gift!”) with the Los Angeles area channel…and cool woman…Shawn Randall…my channeling class friend, Diane, was the first to WILLINGLY go into trance. What I’m still amazed about regarding that evening in 2002 was that Diane’s first guide to come through was Chinese. She channeled in full-blown Chinese (Diane does not speak Chinese.) To make the evening even better, I went into full trance for the first time (voluntarily) and my unseen friend translated the Chinese! Should I mention that I do not speak Chinese either? (I started taking Mandarin classes at work years later and quit after 2 classes because Mandarin is HARD.)
Anyway, and I’ve gotten totally off track here, I cannot always control what happens to me. BUT, I have done “relay channeling” via writing before. (I have lots of written stuff from my unseen friends during the late 1990s.) And, during 1 on 1 mediumship readings with clients, I have occasionally (while awake) had words come out of my mouth that were not 100% me. I’ve had to say, “That wasn’t me.” 🙂
Not only was I born under the star of Spica (lucky star) like Jesus, but Edgar Cayce and I have something else in common astrologically, which I am now totally blanking on. But, the downside of all of this is that MANY full trance channelers or souls that have been sent to Earth to teach, have died young. The 2 quick names that come to mind are Edgar and Jane Roberts (who channeled SETH). I have witnessed many gifted mediums leave this Earth plane too soon who were not famous…or, at least, struggle with severe health issues. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, but a Seth book showed up in my Rochester, NY house as a young teen and I could not put it down. I was fascinated by it and had no idea that years later I’d become a channel. Jane lived not far away in Elmira, NY back then…FYI.
I have forgotten where I am in this post at this point, but, what I need to get at is that (1) what I do is REAL and needs to be believed without drama and (2) full trance (dramatic) mediumship takes A LOT of life force energy. With my health challenges, I’m not sure full trance channeling/mediumship is the best idea for me if I want to live past age 53. I may try to do more relay channeling/mediumship where I’m not totally “gone” and have more control of my energy. Would my readers be open to that?
