What would you do if you began receiving communications from an Inner Voice? What if the Voice brought you more understanding, love and abundance? What if that Voice enhanced your Spiritual growth? What would you do if you realized that your experience could be a universal experience - available to everyone willing to "ask" and "listen?"
I was a radio newsman at KCBS in San Francisco. My wife Denny is a California Marriage and Family Therapist. We have decided to share our experience of discovering this Voice Within, but the decision didn’t come easily. What would people think, we worried, if they knew a respected voice of authority who reports the news every day was having such an unusual experience? And how would it look if his therapist wife was sharing this experience? How could we explain that we were connecting with an "inner voice?" We knew this was not the same situation being experienced by psychotics who report hearing voices commanding and controlling them. This voice was gentle and loving, never intrusive, and it appeared only when invited.
The information, which I channeled while in a light trance state, was tape-recorded and is shared for the first time in a book my wife and I have written, "We Are Here: The Voice of The New Perspective" published by Trafford Publishing. Every session began with the greeting, "We are here," and proceeded to impart what we felt were profound pieces of wisdom, guidance, and answers to personal questions pertinent to everyday life situations and challenges. In time, "The We" became known not only as a dear and loving friend, but also a trusted advisor and teacher.
The events we recorded unfolded over a span of three decades and provided a spiritual adventure in the tradition of Edgar Cayce, the sleeping prophet; Neal Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God; Helen Schucman, who took the dictation that became "A Course in Miracles" and Jane Roberts, who channeled the Seth material.
In my experience with channeling, consider the possibility that I connected…and you also can connect with what "A Course In Miracles" calls the teacher within all of us, the Voice for God. "A Course In Miracles" on page 75 of the Manual for Teachers says, "Consciousness is the receptive mechanism, receiving messages from above or below; from the Holy Spirit or the ego."
The Course also says on page 85 of the Manual for Teachers, "The Holy Spirit is described as the remaining communication link between God and His separated Sons…the Holy Spirit abides in the part of your mind that is part of the Christ Mind. He represents your Self and your Creator, Who are one. He speaks for God and also for you, being joined by both."
We believe we’ve had an ongoing relationship with Holy Spirit and we invite you to read the transcripts of dozens of sessions that are contained in our book "We Are Here." We hope that by sharing our experience you will be inspired to a life in which Spirit comes first. The experience has convinced us that there is unquestionably a wise and magnificent teacher living within each and every one of us. When invited to speak, that Voice of Spirit is easily accessible and incredibly helpful.
Here are some examples of the messages we received:
"We are here to remind you…
—All problems are messengers. They bring forth a signal that says here is where faith is missing. When faith is restored, problems solve themselves, as they have no further need to exist.
—No good purpose is served by judging people harshly for the behavior or actions that come from their lack of awareness. There are two states: consciousness and unconsciousness. Bring only light to darkness.
—Allow vision to replace sight. Sight sees only the body. Vision recognizes the Christ within.
—Contentment comes from being one with the content of your mind. To be discontent is to be out of accord with the content of your mind.
—Peace and contentment come from recognizing the unity of all that is. Disharmony and discontent result from believing that anything or anyone is separate from you."
In Chapter Nine of "We Are Here" you will learn a simple process for creating your own spiritual awakening by learning to tap in to your Inner Voice to receive the gifts of Spirit.
As appreciative students of "A Course In Miracles" my wife and I take to heart the promises made regarding listening to "the Teacher within." On page 52 of the "Manual for Teachers" it is written:
"The teacher of God must learn to use words in a new way. Gradually, he learns how to let his words be chosen for him by ceasing to decide for himself what he will say. This process is merely a special case of the lesson in the workbook that says, ‘I will step back and let Him lead the way.’ The teacher of God accepts the words that are offered him, and gives as he receives. He does not control the direction of his speaking. He listens and hears and speaks."
I can’t think of a better way to describe channeling in its clearest form. The Voice for God lives within each of us and willingly comes forth upon our invitation.
