Channeling: Investigations on Receiving Information from Paranormal Sources

Klimo, Jon

 Psychologist/educator Jon Klimo claims he wrote this book for three reasons: (a) to present a balanced and objective view of channeling, which he defines as "the communication of information to or through a physically embodied human being from a source that is said to exist on some other level or dimension of reality than the physical as we know it, and that is not from the normal mind (or self) of the channel" (p. 2); (b) to address the needs of the increasingly large number of persons who are experiencing some form of channeling; and (c) to expand the reader’s view of reality and to awaken him or her "to the greater possibilities of being human" (p. 3). He writes: "This book will attempt to demonstrate that the realms of the psyche and spirit may be more real and run more deeply than most of us believe" (p. 4). Chapter 1, "Channeling as a Modern," describes some modern channels such as Jane Roberts, Meredith Lady Young, Helen Cohn Schucman of A Course in Miracles, and Eileen Caddy and others of Findhorn. Chapter 2, "Channeling as a Historical Phenomenon," goes back to the prehistoric roots of channeling through the centuries up to the modern era. The third chapter is on the psychology of channeling, the development of channeling, and it presents portraits of five channels. The next three chapters are on the material that is channeled, the nature of the beings or entities that are channeled, and how¯in what states of consciousness¯channeling occurs. The next two chapters present a psychological and biological explanation of channeling. Chapter 9 is on "open channeling," which may include intuition, inspiration, and aspects of the creative process. Chapter 10 provides instructions for becoming a channel. In his concluding remarks, Klimo writes: "Channeling holds out to us the possibility of an incredibly complex, multileveled universe, filled with fellow consciousness, a universe with which we can all interact in new and meaningful ways, each of us taking ultimate responsibility for our respective growth" (p. 342).
