About Channeling (2010)
(transcript of a spontaneous answer to a question, originally spoken by Adima in English, no German translation)
Q: Adima, I remember that you gave channelling sessions in Poona. What exactly is channeling? Can you say how it works and how reliable it is?
A: Mmhhh... looks like, I can not escape all my past (laughter) ... you get me in trouble (laughter)... O.K. this is a complex question. I guess we need to look into few things.
In a way each and every one of us is a channel. A channel for life, a channel for love, a channel for consciousness.
Our very spines are a channel.
The spine is somehow hovering between the earth and the sky. The energy flow of life connects the spine on the bottom end to what we call “the material” and on the other end to what we call “spiritual“. On one end to what we call “our experience“ and on the other end to what we call “pure consciousness.“
Now, on top of that spine, on top of that channel is a bio-computer, the brain, which is like a hardware. It contains an operating system (the mind) and that contains a lot of software, which interprets the electrical signals that reach to the computer through the channel of the spine.
Now, there is areas in every brain, that are a little more or a little less “developed”. What I mean here is, every one of us for example can sing, but not everyone can become an opera singer. There are certain talents which are given. In that sense, a talent means the capacity of the brain to interpret or use certain electrical signals. People who „channel“ - in the sense of receiving and interpreting “messages” - do have a certain talent to plug into the ethernet of psychic electrical signals. That ethernet is surrounding us, surrounding everything everywhere – it is a vibration phenomenon. It is electrical. The “messages” that can be withdrawn (downloaded) from that ethernet are before, during and after time. In another way we can say, the messages in that ethernet are timeless, in the sense, that everything which has happened, is happening and maybe will happen is buzzing around as electrical signals, as a potential.
All of this – and this is important – that is being described here, what I call the “psychic ethernet” is NOT the same as „consciousness“. It is part – or expression of “consciousness”.
Consciousness IS … that, in which all of the described appears. Consciousness is neither an electrical activity nor and electrical non-activity. If anything, consciousness simply IS ... ... ... pure
electricity, or the potential of electricity itself. Until this day electricity itself is not defined as any something.
What I call the “Psychic Ethernet” is already electrical energy formed into CERTAIN electrical signals. Only certain electrical signals can be interpreted by the bio-computer, the brain. The operating system in your bio-computer can interpret such signals whether you are in sleep, you are in dreams, you are in meditation, you are in trance or you are in what is called waking consciousness.
The interpretation of those signals can happen in either of those states. This means, there is no someone doing this – the brain-computer does it.
Channels have a certain talent to “catch” (or, to be aware of) the signals of the psychic Ethernet. Those signals reach to all of us, but only few people have the talent to interpret the signals and decode the electrical code into words or pictures first and then into words.
Now comes an important thing: the interpretation of those signals is always through the software, the programming, the mind of the one who delivers the interpretation, means: the channel. No matter how open-hearted and well motivated a channel might be, the channel cannot other but “filter” the signals through their own body-mind-system.
A good channel is able to step aside as an ego, to step aside with their personal story and only offer the mechanism in the bio-electrical computer to do its job on the electrical signals.
A bad channel involves the personal ego – often without intending to or being aware of it.
A channel without a capacity for meditation may get in difficulties and may put others in difficulties, too. So, a good channel has an experience, has a feeling of not being involvedas a personal ego, and that feeling is accurate. Still, what is often not seen and what is greatly misunderstood is, that the signals from the psychic ethernet are filtered and interpreted by the mind of the channel, ego or no ego in the way. Some filtering is unavoidable.
In the described sense, there is always a filter, not necessarily right or wrong, but simply to recognise this as it is. When a channel says: “I receive a message from a master from Atlantis or from angle So-and-so” they do experience it in this way. There are no special people flying around anywhere.
All the wisdom and also the bulshit - which is much greater in numbers - is ready for download from this psychic Ethernet. You can really imagine this to be similar to the internet. Since the internet
exists, it has become much easier to understand what a channel is plugging into. In the psychic ethernet there is as much spam and as many hoaxes flying around as on the internet. (Laughter)
Consciousness does not exist as time. Consciousness IS. Before, during and after our experience of time. Mystics say „nothing ever happened“ once they have fallen out of the prison of personal self. In awe they say: „nothing ever happened“ – It is true.
And in the same sense we can say „all and everything through all times is here right now.“ This is the same as „nothing ever happened“. Both cannot be understood by the mind. The mind can only move around in time.
I am making you aware of this to understand, that wisdom is simply available as presence itself. Whoever “put the wisdom” into presence is not relevant. Maybe Yes, a certain master, maybe Yes, a certain etheric being, all kinds of people leave electrical prints of presence everywhere – it does not matter what their names are or who they were or whether this vibration ever existed in a form or not. The electrical code is not the message itself. There are no “messages” flying around in the sky. It is electrical potential of presence itself.
You are made of the wisdom you seek!
There is presence of an electrical potential, an electrical vibration. It is like on the computer zero/one/zero/one/zero/one – it is just this vibration presence. Now, when a certain receptive machine is there – which in our case is the channel – suddenly the electrical charge gets interpreted. With it, a kind of the wrapping of the parcel is usually received as well. That wrapping of the parcel consists of feelings and states, which we love to identify as “certain presences” and then the impression rises that a “certain being” is talking to us. My experience is that presence does not talk. Consciousness itself never speaks, pure witnessing does not comment.
I am not saying, that channels are making up what they are listening to or that they do not really hear it – they do hear it! They may be not aware, that they are not separate from whatever they are receiving. So, the receiving can only happen in this way. Also, the person they are doing the channeling for, also that person is not separate from the message, but needs a medium to bridge over.
The most simple way to receive the enormous support that is available and that the universe is always giving freely, is to become very very still, very quiet, attentive, open, condition free. Without setting conditions. leaving alone our expectations, leaving alone our story. Just for few moments just for THIS moment – be still...
This is the simple way – becoming silent.
It is not always an easy way. Channels (and other methods) can help to make it easy to reach the simple ...just a little round about way. You can be absolutely certain, that everything which needs to reach your consciousness to help you be free, to help you awaken, to help you in whatever you need help for, everything will reach to you, in fact it IS reaching in this moment. In fact, you ARE it already. So in the best case, a channel can bridge you over to remember that you are not separate, neither from presence, nor from messages you need.
It is possible, that channels “download” true and helpful stuff AND – just like with the internet – the helpful stuff can be surrounded and embedded in unwanted spam. The danger for the mind is, that once it believes that “angle so and so” is speaking, it gets easily impressed and looses wisdom of discernment. I am not saying that channels are generally charlatans or that they are not doing a good job. What I am saying is, that the amount of messages which get spread around need reflection of silence within. And, messages are often over evaluated or taken too seriously, too much word by word.
Whatever makes you silent, widens your heart, works for you. The most useful message that you can receive is the message that is in you, inherent in your own heart and also around you everywhere, at all times, in all circumstances. That message does not even need a download. It is already here. That message is that you are love itself already. No-thing does have to be different. You can become aware of that great message by being still. The middle of this moment is radically liberating.
Try it – do not believe what I say!
