List of channelled texts

In spirituality, channelling (BE) or channeling (AE) is the belief that communication of information occurs by or through a person (the channel or medium), from a spirit or other paranormal entity outside the mind (or self) of the channel. Channeling is part of the belief systems and rituals of religions, such as Candomblé, Voodoo, Kardecism, and Umbanda.

General

Channelers claim to have channeled ascended masters like Buddha, Jesus, or St. Germain; people who have died; angels; higher dimensional beings; and extraterrestrials of a spiritual or more evolved nature; and God. Channeling is a popular source of revealed teachings in some New Age groups. Well known channelers like Diandra (Salem), Esther Hicks (Abraham), David Reid Lowell (Michel), , Jane Roberts (Seth), Linda Dillon (13 masters and archangels), and Lee Carroll (Kryon) have volumes of teachings on angels, chakras, higher dimensions, future predictions, manifestation, meditation, non-judgment, now moment, past lives, and spirituality.

Books and channeled texts

Several notable books describe the entering of a trance state to allow spirits to speak through the medium or channel (see séance). Some mediums use automatic writing or other methods to channel their entity.

Joseph Benner - Entity: unspecified

Edgar Cayce - Entity/Source: The Universal Mind or The Akashic Records

  • All of Edgar Cayce's readings were carefully recorded, cataloged, and indexed. Those records are administered by the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), a foundation created to preserve and propagate the information he channeled. Cayce allegedly was able to tap into the so-called Universal Mind or the Akashic Records (a record of all history). Many books have been written about him and his readings. See the bibliography section on the Edgar Cayce page for a partial list. Unfortunately many books have been published under Cayce's name which contain only short sections of Cayce readings along with large embellishments by the editors. The A.R.E. Press has published the following books/CDs which contain the least extraneous material:
  • The Complete Edgar Cayce Readings - 14,306 Psychic Readings - (on CD only)- Edgar Cayce
  • Think on These Things: Selections from the Edgar Cayce Readings
  • The Edgar Cayce Companion - A Comprehensive Treatise of the Edgar Cayce Readings - edited by B. Ernest Frejer
  • A Search for God - book 1 and 2 - a collection of Edgar Cayce Readings - compiled by the Edgar Cayce Study Group
  • A Search for God Paraphrased - books 1 and 2 (on CDs also} - paraphrased for easier comprehension by L. Nelson Farley

Channeling in fiction

In fantasy literature, the term channeling is sometimes used in other ways, particularly to describe a person's ability to draw on some form of magical power. The Wheel of Time series, for example, uses the term extensively (although it is by no means the only work to do so). Channeling is mentioned in Tom Robbins's Book "Skinny Legs and All".
