CHANNELING SPIRIT GUIDES
"Channeling phenomenon is far more widespread than we realize. Far more men, women and children throughout history have accessed this higher source.."
“It is my sincere belief that the channeling phenomenon is far more widespread than we realize. Far more men, women and children throughout history have accessed this higher source than we can imagine.
There are infinite possibilities of acquiring wisdom without having consciously learned the information. The human potential is more vast and timeless than our limited perception can acknowledge.
I believe that many human experiences are in truth channeling, but are commonly called by other names.
Channeling can occur when actions or communications come that are not actually originating from the individual.
An artist who paints and finds that the picture seems to have painted itself, a dancer who dances on ‘automatic’, a teacher who presents material that is unplanned or unexpected, a healer who takes actions not previously learned – these examples and others suggest a form of channeling."
- Kahlil Gibran, Poet, Artist and Inspirational Author of “The Prophet”
WHAT IS CHANNELING
In my definition, channeling is the natural act of making a direct connection with the spiritual realms with your consciousness or awareness (whether you are aware of it or not).
It’s when your personality and your ego out of the way and you allow your Soul and Spirit to flow through you. A person who does this is called a channel.
Receiving inspiration and intuition is a form of channeling. Any creative activity where you are focused with an inspired higher mind or in a slightly other worldly way is channeling.
There is a sense of love, peace, comfort, empowerment, confidence, clarity, expansiveness, knowingness, and happiness when you are channeling or connected to God/Source, the Universe, Spirit Guides, the Angels, and your Divine Self, Higher Self, or Soul.
Everyone has the ability to reach a heightened state of awareness with desire, intention, practice, and learning. You may have experienced expanded awareness, talent, ability, or knowing when you are doing something you love.
You will often feel more loving, clearer, wiser, and inspired. This heightened state of expanded awareness from connection with the Divine is often referred to as inspiration, creativity, being in the zone, and going with the flow.
You often connect with the spiritual realms when you sleep, pray, daydream, feel inspired, invent, create, commune with nature, play an instrument, walk, drive, relax, meditate, write, ponder, speak, problem solve, intuit, use your imagination, excel at something, and practice mindfulness, among other things. It is a beautiful, natural act of connecting with Spirit.
THE BENEFITS OF CHANNELING
When I give PSYCHIC GUIDANCE or MESSAGES FROM HEAVEN Readings, I relay to you the guidance and messages Spirit is telling me, showing me, and making me feel. I receive words, thoughts, pictures, and feelings of inspiration and guidance which come from a blending of my Soul or Higher Self and Spirit Guides. I then tell you what I am seeing, feeling, and hearing from Spirit.
In a CHANNELED READING, you will speak directly with Spirit Guides and Spirit Guides will speak directly to you while I am in a slightly altered state similar to a deep meditation. You will have a real conversation with Spirit.
By attuning with Higher Consciousness, I expand my awareness and bring through Divine Spirit.
It is a sacred, intimate, and often life-changing conversation between you and Spirit.
The Guides I channel are highly evolved. They help us know ourselves as loving spiritual beings and to live empowered while consciously connected to Source as our Soul here on earth.
I am a trustworthy channel of high integrity, honesty, responsibility, and years of experience.
The channeling that I offer is somewhat similar to Esther Hicks (who channels Abraham), Suzanne Giesemann (Sanaya), Sanaya Roman (Orin), Pat Rodegast (Emmanuel), and Grace Cooke (White Eagle).
As you speak openly with the Spirit Guides about your concerns, you will receive psychic guidance and loving, empowering messages from Spirit.
Your heart knows Truth when you hear it.
There is often a feeling of great love and compassion for you as the Guides speak. Their words resonate with your Soul.
Our sincere desire is for you to have a positive experience – one that brings self-empowerment, guidance, comfort, understanding, peace, hope, and healing.
The Guides assist you in knowing your Divine Self worth and potential, to live as your Higher Self or Soul, to express love, and serve others.
Spirit supports you in your growth, understanding, healing, and enlightenment.
The Spirit Guides do not represent any one religion, dialect, or culture. They desire to help all who sincerely seek their wisdom.
The Guides I channel represent and work for the Divine Consciousness which is the Spirit of God within all of us. It is who we really are – our True Self.
A Channeled Reading is best received if you truly desire to learn, grow, heal, and co-create your life with the help of your Soul, Spirit, and the Universe.
You will be assisted in raising your consciousness or awareness so you may live more fully empowered as your Soul now here on earth.
The Guides lovingly and gently help you to look at yourself with love, honesty, and responsibility and to understand things on a deeper level spiritually.
You may feel gentle shifts and healing during and after the session to assist you in being your most and creating your best life.
The Guides want you to remember your true nature. You are an eternal Divine spiritual being. You are a powerful Soul.
The Spirit Guides help you to live as your Divine Self and step out into your greatness!
The group of Guides that I channel are known for their love, accuracy, honesty, and wisdom. The Guides enjoy responding to your questions and do so with gentleness and compassion.
Only high-level spiritual beings are allowed into my energy field.
The Guides are neither strictly male nor female, but more often are a group of Guides speaking as one.
The Spirit Guides ask you to focus on their message, rather than who they are or where they are from. They have said their guidance is what is important.
My posture, mannerisms, voice, accent, and pattern of speech may change slightly because it is a greater blending of Higher Consciousness and my Soul speaking while I am in a deep meditation. This is so you will know the difference between when it is a deeper blending of the Guides and my Higher Self speaking versus when I am speaking as Gayle.
Most of the time, I hear the Guides’ words as they are spoken through me. I may be able to briefly discuss what the Guides said to you after the channeling, if you have questions during the reading.
Other times, I am more removed in my awareness and I don’t remember much. Usually, much or all of what is said to you during the reading is forgotten shortly after the reading since I am in a slightly altered state of consciousness.
You will likely experience their love, compassion, and sincere desire to help you, along with their greater wisdom, understanding, and patience.
IMPORTANT: Enjoy listening to a few of the recordings of Group Channeled Sessions here: CONVERSATIONS WITH SPIRIT. There are also client testimonials there for you to read at the bottom of the page (on my personal website).
The Guide’s intention is to guide, educate, empower, uplift, and help heal. As a result, you may feel gentle shifts and healing during and after the session to assist you in being your most and moving forward in your life.
The Guides want you to remember your true nature. You are an eternal Divine spiritual being!
Many people have reported that the compassion, love, wisdom, healing, and high vibrational energy transmissions can be felt through these recordings. Enjoy!
Spirit Guides are messengers or helpers for God/Source. They have often lived many previous lives and have chosen and earned the privilege to serve.
Some Guides may act as a doctor, teacher, protector, joy guide, or doorkeeper to the higher realms for you. They offer their talents, skills, knowledge, and presence to be of help to those they assist.
Guides may be your family and friends who have passed, but more often they are people you have known from previous lifetimes, Ascended Masters, and Spiritual Teachers.
Spirit Guides have different areas of expertise. The Guides are still learning and growing just like we are. We are all continually evolving – those of us here on Earth and those in Spirit.
Spirit Guides are more spiritually evolved than the ego personality of the person they serve. They administer guidance, protection, assistance, information, healing, comfort, and knowledge.
You have at least one Guide, also known as a Guardian Angel, who is with you throughout your life, but usually there are many Guides assisting you.
Some Spirit Guides serve one person for their entire life. Other Guides serve only for the time they are needed. Like attracts like so those of the same intention on Earth are brought together with those in Spirit.
Channeling authentic high level guidance re-connects you with God/Source, the Universe, Spirit Guides, the Angels, and Your Higher Self or Soul. Channeling helps you to remember who and what you really are. You are a magnificent, powerful spiritual being!
I call the group of Spirit Guides that I channel “Divine Spirit” or simply “The Guides”. Divine Spirit is a blending of my Divine Self, Soul, or Higher Self with Spirit Guides who work in service for God/Source and who represent the Divine Consciousness.
Divine Spirit consults and works with your Spirit Guides and your Soul in the reading.
The Guides are often able to see things from a wiser, broader perspective. They accurately explain what is going on within you, others, and in life situations so you can understand things at a deeper level and decide what to do.
Spirit is often able to perceive directly into the heart, mind, body, and soul of you and those you love to guide you on your journey.
As you discuss your concerns with the Guides, they empower you to be your most and help you to create your best life.
Divine Spirit offers insights, teachings, and messages for your spiritual growth.
The Guides will ask questions to help you know your own inner wisdom, self-worth, and personal power.
Sometimes it helps to receive input from a trustworthy channel to compare to your own inner guidance, especially during stressful times when it is often difficult to hear the still, small voice of Spirit within yourself.
Your questions create the direction and focus of your conversation with the Guides.
Your heart knows Truth when you hear it. There is a feeling of great love that comes as the Guides speak. Their words resonate with your Soul.
HOW WE ALL CHANNEL
God/Source, the Universe, Spirit Guides, the Angels, and Your Higher Self or Soul will speak to you in the language you are most familiar with. They will use your vocabulary, ways of speaking, frame of reference, experiences, gifts, and even your humor so you can recognize their guidance and information.
Whether you realize it and whether you believe it or not, you often “channel” or receive spiritual communication, guidance, and information from God/Source, the Universe, Spirit Guides, the Angels, and your Divine Self, Higher Self, or Soul through one or more of your six psychic senses.
Everyone is psychic to varying degrees. Through education and practice, you can improve your psychic abilities.

SPEAKING TO MY SPIRIT GUIDE
Many people often ask me how long I’ve been doing this. The answer is, my whole life. My earliest memory of communicating with Spirit is around age 7 when I remember speaking to my Spirit Guide with my younger brother Greg who was age 5 in our bedroom at night.
(Check out the cute photo below of my brother Greg and me waiting for someone to turn on the TV in front of us. Hmmm, I wonder if the TV show Bewitched was coming on? I sure hope so. I loved that program!)
During my formative years, there were a lot of new TV shows about magic, ghosts, and fantasy. These TV shows had a big influence on me. I enjoyed them all such as Bewitched, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir, Nanny and the Professor, The Flying Nun, I Dream of Jeannie, The Munsters, The Addams Family, The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, The Jetsons, and Lost in Space.
After dinner, my brother Greg and I would sit in the dark on the floor of our bedroom and wait for “Mr. Frog” (our Spirit Guide) to come.
The way the street light illuminated our bedroom curtains created a shadow on the curtains that looked like a frog.
As I stared at the frog shaped shadow on the curtain, I intuitively used it as a focal point and became lightly transfixed or entranced which means my state of consciousness would slightly alter.
When I felt the presence of Spirit in the room, I would tell my brother that “Mr. Frog” (our Spirit Guide) was here.
My brother Greg would ask me, “Gayle, what is Mr. Frog saying?”
My young, open mind became gently and lovingly overshadowed, blended, inspired, influenced, or one with Spirit. This allowed me to channel simple messages from our Spirit Guide “Mr. Frog”.
At age 7, I would easily and naturally consciously channel simple messages to my brother from Spirit.
Today, when I give readings, a lot of the guidance, information, and messages I share with people comes from loved ones in Heaven, Spirit Guides, and the Universe in the same blended or lightly transfixed way as it did when I was 7 years old which is why you will often see me looking to the side of the person so I can stare at something to transfix as I blend with Spirit or I often close my eyes for a deeper connection with Spirit. It’s positive, loving, empowering, simple, and natural.
Be comforted in knowing that your Soul, the Universe, Spirit Guides, Angels, and I want to help you through every situation with love, joy, health, prosperity, peace, and understanding. Our sincere desire is for your happiness, healing, and personal growth.

MEETING “DIVINE SPIRIT”
Early into my spiritual development, I met several different Spirit Guides through my dreams. Some of my Guides I met in my meditation. I highly suggest everyone learn who their Spirit Guides are and learn to communicate with them. Our time on Earth is a partnership between us and Spirit. Our Guides love us and want to support us if we are willing to be open, ask, and receive their guidance.
My first formal introduction to channeling came when I was 24 years old and read in “Out on a Limb” about channel Kevin Ryerson channeling his Guides for Shirley MacLaine. I next became only vaguely familiar with Jane Roberts and her Guide Seth through a book. Later, I listened to some cassette tapes of Esther Hicks channeling her Guide Abraham. I then learned about Sanaya Roman who channels her Guide Orin through some wonderful meditation tapes and her book, “Opening to Channel”. I then intentionally studied the work of many channels to learn from them.
I liked the idea of channeling because I wanted to be as close to my Guides as possible. I longed to connect with Spirit on a very deep and personal level, learn from them, and share their wisdom with others. I wanted to feel their love, support, and peace.
When I first started spiritual development classes at Delphi University in Georgia, I observed Marshall Smith (husband of Patricia Hayes) trance channel the great medium Arthur Ford. I was fascinated.
When I was about 43 years old, I studied Channeling at a Spiritualist Church for several years and then studied on my own for many years. I also taught Channeling Classes.
In the beginning, I was able to channel several different Spirit Guides one at a time. Later, I channeled the group of Guides that I have come to call "Divine Spirit. It is an exhilarating experience and still is every time I channel them whether verbally through inspirational speaking, counseling, teaching, or through inspirational writing.
I refer to the group of Spirit Guides who work with me as, “Divine Spirit”. When I first asked them their group name, I received the words clairaudiently, “THE I AM THAT I AM.”
I didn’t know what that meant so I Googled the phrase in quotes and learned online that “THE I AM THAT I AM” is the Spirit of God within all of us. It is our Higher Self or Soul. It is God/Divine Consciousness.
I told my Guides that I thought it was an amazing and beautiful description, but too difficult for most people to understand and that it had too many words.
I told my Guides that I would refer to them as, “Divine Spirit” from then on.
Most of the time, my Spirit Guides and Soul often speak to me personally intuitively and clairaudiently. My Spirit Guides talk and Higher Self to me through channeled inspiration during the day, especially when I’m walking, but most often at night when I wake up, particularly if I can’t fall asleep. I can always tell how good of a night sleep I’ve had by how many pieces of note paper I’ve written on during the night. If I don’t write their guidance, wisdom, and inspiration down when it flows to me in my thoughts, I lose it. That’s why I always carry paper and pen on me.
I never know when the inspiration from Spirit will come or what Spirit will say until it happens and it’s so helpful, I don’t want to risk losing it. I often need to absorb what they said later so I save the notes to review at a later time. I hope to share more of their words with you someday. I’m putting together a book of my Spirit Guides’ inspired words.
There is a sense of knowing that comes with the words as I write them down or speak them in a reading as if the truth is being spoken. The guidance and information from Spirit has a wise, confident, peaceful, loving feeling. I feel the Guides’ earnest desire to empower and support us.
IMPORTANT: You can also see some of what Spirit has written through me in the link INSPIRING POEMS & QUOTES.
Enjoy watching me read some of the Guides’ profound messages on the link MEDIA.
Channeling is a process of stepping away from your ego and connecting with the broader sense of who you are – your own Divine Self, Soul, or Higher Self and that of Spirit beings – which allows you access to the fullest expression of yourself.
My Spirit Guides and my Divine Self, Soul, or Higher Self give me guidance about my own personal life as well as what to do for my business. The subject matter can range from personal growth, spiritual development, and practical matters in life or business.
I rarely have a night when I don’t write something down and it’s always very helpful and often profound. Sometimes what my Guides say to me is in response to things I have been wondering about or needing direction on. Other times, their words pertain to things I have never thought of myself. Often, I have to look up certain phrases or words online for their meaning.
Channeling my Spirit Guides and my Divine Self, Soul, or Higher Self through inspirational writing started when I was in 3rd grade with a poem I wrote that seemed too mature for my age at that time. Some of the things Spirit writes through me are so loving, profound, and moving, it brings me to tears. Their words are often wiser than my own and my Guides are often more succinct in the way they say things. There is also a bit of a poetic quality to their wisdom.
I write the words down in a sort of dictation-style. There is an urging to write them down that seems to override my own thoughts and feelings temporarily. It feels good as I write for Spirit because when our energies are blended, I feel the Guides’ presence, love, wisdom, and peace.
Be sure to enjoy the Inspiring Poems and Quotes by me, my Spirit Guides, and by others: INSPIRING POEMS & QUOTES (on my personal website).
The poems and quotes listed under the link above include writing I have channeled from my Spirit Guides. It will say it is “channeled” which means it’s not my ego’s thoughts. Channeled writings are the thoughts, wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration of my Spirit Guides and my Divine Self, Soul, or Higher Self.
