Book Club: Opening to Channel

Opening to Channel is probably one of my favorite books. I’ve taken Sanaya Roman’s Opening to Channel audio course, and it took me about a year to complete the series. Each time I did one of the meditations, I was so overwhelmed by the information coming through that my mind would freak out and I’d say to myself...Ok, I’ll do this again in a few weeks. 

When I finally finished the tape series, I met my current guides for the first time the week after, decided to get trained in Reiki, and then launched an entirely new life.

That said, it took me until...yesterday...to really finish reading this book.

I’m so glad I finished it.  

So, you ask...what is channeling, really?

With channeling you can access all the ideas, knowledge, and wisdom that is and ever will be known. When you ‘channel’ you access these higher realms by connecting with a high-level guide or your source self, who steps down this higher vibration and makes it more readily available to you...In this receptive state you become the vessel for bringing through higher energies which you can use for creating good.
— Orin, Opening to Channel

The most amazing thing about this book is the authors Sanaya and Duane really believe everybody can channel, and they describe the different ways people’s experiences might differ. 

The book is really well presented, easy to read, and totally inspiring. Plus, it really works. If you are looking for an introductory guide to channeling, I’d check out this book, and then the Orin Audio Course. The book contains exercises and processes to prepare you for channeling, teach you how to do readings for yourself and others, and assuage any doubts you might have about your abilities. The audio guides are a great accompaniment. 

There are some sections that really make me pause and re-read them several times, such as this one:

There is a widely held belief that the imagination is not to be trusted, and that only things scientifically real and provable can be relied on. Yet, many of your greatest scientific inventions come from the imagination. Learn to trust and honor your imagination. Albert Einstein “made up” the theory of relativity. Then he proved it was mathematically possible. Thomas Edison “made up” the electric light bulb and the phonograph, seeing them in his mind before he was able to create them in fact. He believed in the picture in his mind so much that he tried hundreds of times to create the light bulb and kept going even when everyone else told him it could not be done. Everything in your reality existed as a thought before it existed in reality.
— Learning to Channel, pg. 181

Every time I've picked up this book, I feel uplifted, alive, and more connected to source. 

Some books you read and forget. Other books you read and recommend to others. And yet other books change your life, and permanently alter your existence from the moment you encounter them onwards. This book has really changed my course, and I hope you enjoy it. 


Excellent! Four books down, 48 more to go! Next week we're reading Meditation for the Love of It by Sally Kempton. I hope you'll join me!
