Life is feeling rich and full right now! I am participating in “The Artistry of Channeling” series being lead by Annie Bossingham and Samuel one of the collective energies she channels. I have been looking forward to this for months and I am thrilled it is finally here.
This is the same program I participated in a year ago. So in someways I was curious about how it would be the second time around. Last year when I signed up I wasn’t attached one way or the other to the idea of vocal channeling. I knew the class would be expansive and fun (based on what I knew about Annie), however, I guess I thought that even if I had the experience of being able to connect with and vocally channel an entity, I wasn’t sure it was something I would continue doing; just because it didn’t appear to be something that would hold my interest.
Well… It has been so much fun and such an amazing personal learning experience, that it is one of my favorite ways to navigate my spiritual journey.
BUT… I also wondered… “What will it be like participating in a workshop that teaches you about channeling; when you are already doing that?” Well the answer is, it is a completely different experience. Mainly because “I” am completely different than I was a year ago! So, even though I am hearing many of the same concepts and ideas and most of the materials are the same; I hear it in a new way. It affects me in a different way. It feels like a brand new experience!
The reason I decided to share this with you is because we tend to be more aware of this phenomenon when we are bumping up against old behaviors, patterns or habits. You know. You become aware of a situation or circumstance that is holding you back. You do the work to shift of change the outcomes, and just when you think it is part of your past…, it manifests in a new way. You hit another layer of the same behavior or recognize the impact of the old habit you thought was history.
I don’t know about you, but in the past I use to beat myself up about hitting these new and deeper levels of these familiar patterns. Rather that seeing this as the next layer, I treated it as if I had simply failed to “get it right” the first time.
This situation of participating in an experience that I am already familiar with, yet understanding and hearing in a new way is also about bumping up against a different level. Both of these scenarios are about growth. However, in the past, one I gave myself a hard time about and the other I didn’t acknowledge!
How about you! Are you celebrating your expansion and awareness? Are you hearing or experiencing familiar situations anew? If so, make sure you acknowledge how far you’ve come on your journey! Trust me, it is something to celebrate!
With Light, Love, and Laughter
Charles, you are just so much fun and your honesty is endearing. Good luck with your class. It is a long way for me to drive and a lot of money for our budget right now. Keep me posted.
Ah Diana! Thanks for the nice feedback. I love seeing the word “fun”! It brings warm feelings to my heart! I hope to have Annie back to do more workshops in the future. She is amazing. And now there are over a dozen people around town who can and will attest to that!! So, hopefully next time it will work for you. BTW… I am writing more detailed posts about this on my other website/blog that is specifically about channeling. If you want to read more, I have two recent articles posted today… And will be writing a couple more about this weekend’s class (soon)! Check it out at http://www.ChannelingBOB.com Thanks Again for being so supportive and encouraging! – Charles
Hi Charles. I enjoy reading your message each week, but don’t give you a comment. However, in this last post, you made a comment which really resonates with me. And I quote:
“I don’t know about you, but in the past I use to beat myself up about hitting these new and deeper levels of these familiar patterns. Rather that seeing this as the next layer, I treated it as if I had simply failed to “get it right” the first time.”
I do not know how many times I have beat myself up for not recognizing the next layer. But thanks to your insight and sharing it, I will be more aware of my next layer. Thank you.
It is so sweet of you Glady to send such a confirming message to me! I really appreciate it. It really is amazing how our lives parallel each others in so many ways. Probably why community is such an important aspect of our lives. Great big hugs… and much success catching the next layer before there are any limiting emotions! A goal of mine too! Hugs
