You don’t have to be a praying person to receive answers. Anyone who is curious enough and begins questioning the reality around them is capable of receiving answers to questions they would otherwise not be able to answer for themselves.
I want to share with you the channeling technique that I use. It works very well for me, but I also think how you channel may be a function of how your brain works, so your ideal system may vary. This system helps me make new connections about the discrepancies between the 3D and 5D worlds in record time and I rely on it often. I think of it as a way to fast-track the normal time spent pondering the meaning of something or reflecting on events in order to understand them, which may take years.
This technique is like a picture of a brainstorming web that you used in high school English. You have a central theme in the middle (in this case you could also insert the word “query” or “problem.”) I have learned to do this in my thoughts but you could also write it out to have a visual.
From there, you come up with several more minor themes transpiring within the context of this “problem.” Perhaps they’re things that make you curious or that you can’t explain. Maybe they nag at you to solve. Or maybe you wonder if anyone else is feeling or thinking the same way about something. Perhaps you want to understand how two or more things are connected and share a mutual energy. Beneath each one, you jot down a question that you have about said sub-issue.
Then beneath these questions, you think of possible answers, causes, reasons, or solutions. If you are correct, you will feel an energetic resonance of “correct” and you will also likely be given follow-up information to further prove the answer is right (information you may not have realized or connected before), as well as to lead you to deeper and higher knowledge.
You can also put an “I could be wrong”, or “I don’t have enough information,” answer as an option and sometimes you get a positive resonance for that answer as well, which helps you understand there is simply more to learn and you will know in time; that the answer can’t just be given, it must be learned so you remember. By learning organically “in the trenches,” you remember the feeling of a thing and a feeling can never completely be taken from you. It is like a never-ending library of your favorite books that you remember more and more of while reading over again. You relive something (the karma) in order to remember what it feels like and remember what lead you to this point. Then you don’t forget it.
If the hypothetical answers you came up with are incorrect, you may feel a tinge of a negative emotion or feel a dissonant vibration in the 3rd, 4th, or 6th chakras. Even knowing you are wrong is a gift, though, because it leads you down further streams of knowledge.
Also keep in mind, you have to have a contingency for that fact that you may be projecting your own wounds onto the answer. So keep that as an answer as well, “Am I not seeing this clearly because of my own assumptions?” I walk you through how to get past this in my book, by the way. If you get a “yes” or unsure resonance, you can do more personal work to heal yourself and get past the blockage in your own view in order to acquire the correct answer.
Usually after I get answers about something, I try to see how or if this problem connects to something else I have witnessed or experienced. I imagine a picture of each of the subjects in my mind’s eye (third eye), then I imagine them crossing at a centralized middle point, and it feels like an instant compare and contrast. I am usually shown how these two things intersect, what they share in common, what adverse experiences or intentions they share, or how there is a veiled cooperation among them. From there, you begin to see how many things connect, or even if they do not connect, you can develop a greater capacity for learning. This is because it’s like you learn at double speed by not only learning about the original subjects but also how another is different and similar. You’re contrasting two instead of just one which is twice the rate of learning.
This is not only how you identify your karma in order to resolve and learn from it, but it is also how to tap into the collective unconscious.
