As more and more Lightworkers open up to their higher senses, many of them seek to offer guidance to their fellow brothers and sisters in the form of channelling the Ascended Masters and Angels. And students on the path see them in the hope to receive support for their Spiritual growth.

While this is all wonderful, unfortunately more often than not, the channelings floating around in the New Age Movement today are all illusionary or lost on the astral plane. Why? Because people don’t understand that a channel is only as clear as his consciousness. So whatever blind spots they may have in their consciousness, these will be reflected in their channelings.

So for your enjoyment, here are ten things to watch out for in a channel.

A clear channel:

1. Will never order you around.
2. Will present truth in a very clear and concise manner.
3. Will only make suggestions, never commandments.
4. Will leave you with a feeling of unconditional love and support which does not mean, however, that they would not present truth as it appeared to them and offer you guidance and suggestions.
5. Will never create fear.
6. Will always honor the free will choice of others.
7. Will never invade your privacy by snooping about your aura and then offering unsolicited advice.
8. Has high integrity within themselves and seeks to align with God and the Masters, and uphold the higher principles within their own lives.
9. Works for God, the Masters and the Spiritual Hierarchy.
10. Works for the benefit of mankind, which may, for the moment, be you; they do not, however, have any other agenda than to be of service.

In conclusion, there is nothing wrong with seeking guidance from an external channel, however, above all else, to thine own self be true! Take all channellings with a grain of salt. This is what the Integrated Ascended Master does.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development.

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
