I am overwhelmed with messages, help!December 7, 2010
The situation that I am having is that once I open myself up to channel it doesn’t take long for me to become totally overwhelmed with messages. How do I control the intensity and shut it off when I’m ready or have been exhausted? Tonight I went to an energy center and opened myself up and for about 2 hours, receiving constant messages (and drawings). From whom or from how many I don’t know, but time came when I needed to leave and compose myself. Even now there are still energies that are trying to come through. What do I do?
In love and light.
Inspirations from Binah:
Being overwhelmed is a common occurrence when you first begin to channel. It is easy to become so excited about the messages and contact, that you forget to use your power to modulate what comes in. When you proceed as you are, with no restraints, there is a real danger in doing damage to all levels of your body: physical, emotional and spiritual.
When you open yourself to channel, you put a heavy burden on your physical self. The human body was not intended to hold that much light, therefore you must take extra care of yourself through healthy diet and exercise. Eat a hearty meal before the session to give you the energy needed to maintain your connection, nourishing your physical self. As you begin, set your intention to modulate your vibration up to match that of the being you are going to communicate with. Doing this will allow your body to slowly amp up its resonance instead of shocking the body with a giant leap. When you are done, take ample time to rest, giving your body what it needs to return back to its earthly vibration.
On a spiritual level, a word of caution against opening yourself to anyone and anything. There is duality on every plane, and with Light comes Dark. While there are many beings here to help humanity on its journey, their intentions may not be aligned with your own. This is not to say that they will necessarily hurt you on purpose, but in their quest to communicate, they may not take into consideration that you are a human being with specific physical constraints.
It is recommended that you work with your Higher Self to identify a being, or set of beings, that you will regularly communicate with. Set your sacred space to begin your session and instead of opening yourself fully, take a minute to commune with your Higher Self. Ask for guidance on identifying who you should be channeling and let your Higher Self formally introduce the appropriate being. Speak directly to this being and determine how you want the relationship to flow. For example, let the being know that you will only allow channeling when you have set your sacred space and called in the energy necessary to protect your physical self. If the being needs to speak with you outside of this time, s/he can work with your Higher Self to pass on the message, so you have time to prepare your body for the transmission.
The beings you channel may change over time, but the protocol should always be the same. Make a connection with the being first through your Higher Self, determine how you are going to communicate, and then enjoy a free exchange of information. If at any time you feel that your agreement is not being honored, kindly tell the being that you can no longer connect and ask him/her to go to the Light. Your intentions will be honored and you can move on to work with another being.
May your experiences be filled with much learning and knowledge!
