“There is a perception often promoted through books and movies - that of the channel or medium being ‘taken over’ by a spirit guide or by the spirit of someone recently deceased who has an urgent message to impart to the living. The lighting is usually dim, with ominous descriptions or eerie music that puts us on edge. The channel appears to be entranced or unconscious while a strange voice issues forth, and later, he or she usually has no memory of what has been said.
In my experience as a Conscious Channel (and I can only and ever speak for myself) my personality, Laurie Levity Laughing Star, stays alert and focused while Star Many transmits multi-sensorial chunks of information to be translated using my vocabulary, my experiential understanding, my intellectual knowledge, cultural references, and my lifetime stockpile of visual images. No part of my personality or my conscious self goes to sleep, blacks out or wanders around unaware. I am as engaged in listening to what is coming through as anybody in my audience. There's not a sense of separation at all. I hear my own voice and I admit I am sometimes surprised to hear what's coming out of my mouth.
But then, I'm really not. Because talking through me means they are using my awareness and abilities. Abilities to make coherent sentences and paragraphs as images flood in, words and phrases come through, and a ‘knowing’ occurs. There's a split second where I know what's going to come out of my mouth. It all happens incredibly fast and I always love the moments when I hear them, Star Many, laughing. Actually hearing laughter in my head, which makes me laugh and I always have such a sense that they feel like we’re in the zone, in the flow - that we’re working as a team, and that my input from my life experience and knowledge partners with what they feel we need to transmit. To me it seems as if they are really happy that I am able to stay in a neutral listening space and not flavor their message with my thoughts or opinions. That I can look on and let them use what ‘tools’ I have available to transmit their messages clearly.
When Star Many and I work together our energy becomes entrained. When I am in that uncomplicated, open, expansive state, I can let myself more easily be available to receive and transmit while simultaneously being well aware of what is coming through as well as my own thoughts on the subject. Also, I can gauge if it is well-spoken enough to be understood by others. If not, I, Levity, can interject and expand, simplify or elaborate on what Star Many has been talking about and showing me. It can help you understand their meaning better.”
