Channeling - Lesson #1 - Channeling your own mission
Or What the heck AM I doing here?
By Peter Farley www.4truthseekers.org
Recently, I have had to be involved with a number of people who are not working, either because of early retirement or being on disability, etc. It was very noticeable how being out of the mainstream flow of life affected their ability to maintain any sense of ‘normalcy’.
If true spirituality is being in the flow or central current of a fast-moving stream, then most people are hanging out on the periphery of that flow, getting caught up in the pools and eddies and backwash of that stream. For these people who choose to be away from any form of contact with that flow it is like being out of the water all together. It takes an amazingly strong person to be away from the flow and still maintain their own personal balance, and very few of us can do that.
Very few people do not gain in their awareness or spiritual growth from being around other people. And very few people I have worked with over the years are simply here for their own spiritual growth. Most healing and learning takes place in interaction with other people.
In The Only Planet of Choice, the Council of Nine (yes, the good ones) say that only as few as 2 to 3 percent of souls coming to this planet ever complete their missions. And my Guidance says it is often less than that.
Perhaps this is because for most of us, the ‘Lightworkers’ or more spiritually advanced Beings, our missions involve coming back to planet Earth to assist other people, not what a lot of ‘spiritual’ paths preach about working on our own awareness only. For the New Age religions it’s all about personal spiritual growth rather than about assisting others and the spiritual awareness gained and the spiritual medals earned from doing this.
Thus most of us are looking in the wrong direction while the missions we chose in coming here lie directly below our feet. In fact almost everyone I’ve ever worked on in the healing room or through the internet have in some way already been doing their missions or at least, with the times to come, honing their skills for when they are really needed later on in this lifetime.
The biggest problem is that we don’t see the skills we have acquired over so many numerous lifetimes that can be used to service the grander spiritual needs of Creation. We all think we have to be martyrs or public figures, when in truth the great spiritual workers are usually behind the scenes of what’s taking place. Skills such as organizing, facilitating, bringing others together, even cleaning can be and often is a spiritual skill never really appreciated as such.
No one ever sent an army of soldiers out to fight a war without any kind of support personnel. Neither does Spirit.
When thinking about your own mission [channeling your own mission is a series of articles on the website http://www.4truthseekers.org/channeling_your_mission.php ] first remember, just Being here and Being awake is one of the greatest gifts we can give because Spirit works through people, especially those who are awake. But it is also not an excuse not to do what you specifically came here to do, and get a move on with it.
Second is that anything you do to assist others in their time here on the planet or in acquiring some real-time awareness is part of Being a Master. A good motto to put on your refrigerator and then live by is what Gandhi once said: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service to others.”
Third, look at the various skills you take for granted that make you so good at anything you like to do and do well. Make a list of them and see what specialties you have that make you uniquely you. How could they best be used to serve Spirit’s mission in helping as many to be free as will wake up in this time?
I have always made the offer to help anyone understand their mission if they will e-mail me with that request [email@example.com]. Understand, however, that not everyone is ready to hear their missions. If I had known where my mission would take me I doubt that at that time I would have had the strength to go through with it. Also realize that this is an offer to assist you rather than to spoon feed you your mission because without you being connected with your own personal Guidance there’s very little to no chance you’d ever do your mission anyway. So if you’re not willing to do the work please don’t ask me to do your work for you.
Missions are very rarely ‘go here, do this’. Spirit/Guidance usually wants to see you walking the path before it shows you much more. As one door along the path opens, more of the mission is shown. The further you walk, the bigger and clearer the picture gets.
Keep that in mind and do not seek to see the end when you have not begun taking the steps and building the foundation so very necessary to doing your full mission here in this lifetime.
Next, think for awhile about the fact that everything you are and everything you have ever done in every past lifetime is all to lead you to this point in Eternity when all that you are and all that you know and everything you can do is needed to help overcome the darkness spreading like a cancer across Creation. And as They say in The Only Planet of Choice, “What’s it going to be like going through Eternity knowing that the lifetime that really counted you didn’t step up to be counted?”
And lastly, learn to channel your own mission, for no matter what anyone tells you about it, no one can answer all the questions you have except that Guidance with whom you worked out your current mission in the first place. Also it is They who will help keep you on track as you walk that path, as Sue Ann’s Guidance says in this brief channeling:
We love you, we are you. We know it’s hard for you to trust yourself/US. It’s easier for you to trust the untrustable, others. We know what makes you happy. Yes, you’ve been betrayed and have betrayed yourself. Trust again as you did when you were a baby, trust US again your true guardians. Be happy with US. We know you, We are you. Look at the alternative - fear and uncertainty and all the things you despise the most. Just do it, trust and be happy. Your people have been bound up tight with interest, legal issues, laws, etc. until there is no freedom from the fear of poverty and the loss of freedom. That has been the plan and it has worked beautifully. All of you are scared to death to even breathe. Trust US; We’ll walk you through this tangled mess of laws and punishments. Freedom and happiness are what you and everyone should have easy access to. Stay in your heart, ask US often, and listen through your heart. Trust what you feel there. Ask yes and no questions. Envision being happy in the future as well.

Channeling Exercise: Learn to channel your own Guidance with this simple, easy to use exercise:
Channeling and Your Own Mission --
The following simple technique is how I have taught so many to successfully channel their own Higher Self or Guidance, correctly, the first time and every time that fear does not get in the way. Do yourself a favor and print out the exercise and read through it as people tend to ‘skim’ articles on the computer rather than read for the full deepest meaning of the words:
I am writing to tell you about a way to channel. It is called the “Dear One technique”.
First, I would suggest going to a quiet area where you can sit comfortably in a relaxed state, somewhere where you won’t be bothered. If you are serious at all about your spirituality and therefore give your Guidance and your own spiritual nature the respect it deserves you will set aside to do this without being interrupted by the outside world. One of the greatest reasons for people failing to do this is that they are too worried about other things or their day to come rather than being HERE and NOW to connect. If appropriate, sit and do the HU for 15 minutes before sitting to write - http://www.eckankar.org/hu.html The HU belongs to know religion or spiritual path. It is for everyone, regardless.
Then, either on paper or set up on the computer in a Microsoft Word or word processing program, begin by writing - “Dear One,” on the page. This is your guidance referring to you as the “Dear One”. What you then write is THEIR words to you, not yours to Them. From there, begin writing whatever comes through you however you receive it. Do not stop and judge the message, and do not try to edit or spell correctly or anything for this shifts you into the analytical side of your brain instead of the creative heart side. All that can be done when you are finished. Keep writing whatever you are getting and do not stop until your Guidance signs off. As a free writing exercise you never lift your pen from the page in doing this very same exercise just allowing everything to flow outward until done.
If you have a little trouble beginning then you may need to start out with a prompt, something like, “The most important thing for you to know right now is. . .” to get you started. Your mind may try to get in the way or you may get flustered. Do not think about things. Do not question. Do not wonder if you are doing it right. The best motto for this is ‘Just do it’. If something happens to stop you, just start over again by writing “Dear One,” and then continue. When you are finished, you may channel a closing such as “With Great Love” and then channel the name of the Being or Beings or your Higher Self you are channeling. If you do this once or twice daily for 10-15 minutes it should become more comfortable to do within a very short time. Learning to trust it depends on you and your connection. That’s why I am here initially to help confirm things for you as I am able to work with anyone and everyone’s Guidance. A little confirmation in the beginning helps you feel secure with the process and tends to help you move forward instead of easily finding an excuse not to do it.
Always COMMAND that only those who are for your highest good and those who serve the Highest be allowed to channel through you. Some may channel their Higher Self, that part of themselves connected to every other Soul and to the Creator Itself. Some have more specific missions to channel messages for or from the planet, for specific groups of Beings on the planet, or for the Lightworkers as a whole.
When you are comfortable with the process you can then begin asking questions which you should write down, and then channeling an answer, again beginning with “Dear One,”. To strengthen your own innate talents of doing this, ask your Guidance for an answer inwardly whenever you have a decision to make anytime or all of the time throughout the day. Should I wear blue or green today? Should I go this way or that way to work? Should I go to McDonalds or Wendy’s for lunch? Should I have the chicken or the hamburger? This is working with moment to moment Guidance and the channeling and it both help strengthen the channels between you and your Guidance.
If you can even get just a yes or no answer to such questions, with time, you will be able to deal with any situation that confronts you by simply asking Guidance. Constant practice builds the ability to hear, see, and to trust.
Guidance will rarely ever ask you to do something which is not a part of your spiritual makeup. You always have the right and should eventually learn to challenge whatever you are getting by asking/commanding THREE times “In the name of the Highest, is what I am getting correct?
Yes, there are other entities out there that like to play games, but you are not trance channeling and as long as your intent is pure, nothing should ever be able to bother you.
Read the other lessons in the Connecting with Guidance section after you have done (not ‘tried’) the channeling technique a few times. I am always here personally to help individually with this task until you get comfortable with it. Most people I work with get upwards of 90% correct the first times they do this. I am always happy to let you know the results of your initial efforts should you so wish and what else you might do to improve your connections. . Some of you out there have specific messages for people and some others around you relating to the talents/skills/mission you have brought into this lifetime. I can also help you with this should you see fit to ask for this kind of assistance. The key word here again is ‘help you’. It is of no use to you if I simply tell you your mission since without you being connected to your own Guidance in some real way, the chance of your ever doing your mission is little or none.
Above all, Enjoy!
Laugh and Be Well,
