Yesterday I went to channeling class. I never thought I'd take the seat in front of the group and channel a message but I did! Sort of. The energy that came through all evening was Merlinesque and at times a little bit theatrical. As an observer, it felt and looked like play acting.
We sat in a semi-circle and faced an empty red chair at the front. There was no particular order to speak. At first I thought I wouldn't say anything, then I considered staying in my own chair and saying a few words about magic.
The first performances (ahem, messages) were fun to watch. More than the words, I was in awe of the energy flair in the room. It was pretty amazing. Then the group became very reluctant to continue, and when it seemed like we were running out of volunteers I began to feel like I had to sit in the chair.
Just sit. See what it felt like. I didn't think anything would happen and I still wasn't planning on channeling any messages. I didn't want to let that moment go by without sitting in the chair. I thought of The Sword in the Stone. And the possibility that none of us knows what we're capable of. I had to find out.
So I volunteered to go next. When I sat down I said something about wanting to see how it felt like to sit in the chair. I mentioned this feeling, of taking the Sword from the Stone. That none of us knew what we were capable of. It's time to find out. Use your imagination. Just sit here and see what happens.
Was this channeling? Who knows!
I just had to try it. My energy felt very childish, in a good way. I had never been so keen to take a seat in front of a group of people and talk (or not talk). So maybe it wasn't me, or maybe it was more of me than I am used to.
