What is Channeling?
Channeling is opening up a channel for energy to flow through you where your mental thoughts and emotions are bypassed through a method of self hypnosis, so that there is clarity of inner guidance that is undisrupted by thoughts or logic. The guidance that then flows through you is that of the Divine.
The Divine is a term used to refer to the Ultimate Source of everything. Some say “God”, others say “Allah”, others perhaps “universal consciousness”; there are many such terms, and you may use the word that resonates best for you that refers to the ultimate source energy.
All humans have the ability and capacity to channel the Divine. This connection has always been present within you in the form of intuition, insight and inspiration. Dira provides you with simple techniques to open this connection clearly and on your demand.
How does channeling work?
The Components of the Human Mind
Our Hard drive (The subconscious mind): In every minute of our lives we receive at least 4000 message units of data that are stored in the mind from the time that we were in the womb. This data is stored in our subconscious mind, like the hard drive of a computer.
The Internet (The universal mind): Furthermore, there is an electromagnetic field that radiates out of us that connects all hard drives like a network, connecting the subconscious minds of all, into what can be referred to as a universal mind, you can consider it like the internet.
RAM (The conscious mind): The data that we retrieve from the hard drive, or our subconscious mind, lies in the conscious mind, like our RAM. At any point in time, the conscious mind only uses 10% to 12% of all the data stored on the hard drive.
The Software (Beliefs & Perceptions): So if all of this data is available, the question is how do we retrieve it by the conscious mind? The retrieval mechanism is the software of the mind, which for humans are our beliefs and perceptions. Our beliefs are like the word search, we only retrieve what is searched for, and our search is based on a programmed software.
Viruses (limiting beliefs): When we hold limiting beliefs, we can consider them like a virus that corrupts our software to retrieve and access data. So for example, if one believes that they are bad at math, the software will retrieve data that reinforces that belief, and so then indeed they become bad at math. But if for example, they had a different belief, such as math is easy, then the data retrieved based on this software program would reflect that.
How can we optimise our "mind" with Channeling?
Channelling is a process of releasing limiting beliefs so that the conscious mind can access more data that is relevant to us, opening the window from the conscious mind to the subconscious and universal mind. It is the removal of viruses in our software that limit us and our potential.
As societies, we have been conditioned to believe (a programmed belief) that our logical reasoning at the conscious mind level is superior to intuition. When the conscious mind, as has been explained, is limited to a small window of data based on historical data collection and conditioned beliefs. By functioning in our lives purely from the logical or conscious mind level, we do not see the full picture, nor do we access our full potential.
Intuition and inner guidance on the other hand, is from the universal mind, and has access to an infinite data pool of all information, and is not limited to your own individualised data collection or beliefs, but is connected in a network of everything.
Imagine what could be possible, if you were able to make decisions based on this more expansive data pool, that is not limited to the capacity of the conscious mind, but is unlimited as your software has no viruses and therefore is unlimited.
It is through the software of the mind, that people like Einstein, Tesla and Mozart have made significant contributions to the world, through what some may call inspiration. But if we put it in simple terms, it is accessing a part of us that contains almost infinite files of data and has the processing capacity to analyse and interpret that data in a way that our conscious mind is unable to because of our limiting thoughts and beliefs.
By accessing the subconscious and universal mind through channelling, you are able to access data and interpret it in a way that with the use of the conscious mind alone would not be possible.
How can a person channel?
The process that we use for Channeling is a form of self-hypnosis, where the person is completely conscious of what is being said, but the critical filter of our thoughts, emotions and beliefs is bypassed so that they have access directly to the universal mind.
Hypnosis is not a new phenomenon, however the way in which we practically use it builds on what was done by practitioners in the past. Through hypnosis, one is able to hold a moment of inspiration long enough so that your conscious thoughts do not interfere. Great inventors like Tesla although perhaps did not call it hypnosis, entered in to a trance like state where they were able to visualise in detail their invention, or like Chopin could hear his music composition.
You can say that at a conscious mind level, at any given time as we live our day to day lives, we have a 10 degree opening to information due to the software that limits us. Channeling enables the possibility of widening this opening to be able to retrieve more information and hold a wider perspective than logic can. Not only are you able to access all the data in your own subconscious mind, but you are also able to plug into the universal mind and enter into a state of “Oneness”, where you are one and connected to everything.
Dira teaches one how to enter into this state of oneness on demand, like being able to flick a switch between being in this flow of oneness and being in a state of logical reasoning. A poet, for example, may wait for inspiration to flow and have "writer's block" without this technique, whereas Dira offers tools to be able to enter into the state of clear inspiration and intuition on demand whenever you want it.
Why would I want to learn how to channel?
The benefits of channeling are vast. Imagine that there is a pool of data that has information about everything that has ever happened. Imagine if you could access this pool directly. What can this mean for us?
To start, imagine if you could access all of the information presented to you since you were conceived; every sound you heard, every sensation you felt, every flavour you tasted, every sight you saw, every experience you lived, all right there for you to access, without the corruption of biases or limiting beliefs attached to any of it. What would you be able to do with such an ability? Or rather, what would you not be able to do?
Channeling enables the possibility of widening this opening to be able to retrieve more information and hold a wider perspective than logic can. Not only are you able to access all the data in your own subconscious mind, but you are also able to plug into the universal mind for everything as it is Omniscient, and that is where the vastness of this ability blossoms.
By channeling, you are not limited by logic, which is based on historical data collection and conclusions derived from historical experiences, but instead you access information and conclusions based on an infinite data pool, guided by The Omniscient Divine; a data pool that is detached from, and not corrupted by, your mental constructs, societal beliefs, and other irrelevant factors. On a practical level, by channeling, you are able to access information that will help you make decisions in life that are more aligned for you, and so in turn, serve you versus not. Decisions which will allow you to Live your most Magnificent Possibility. Want to know how best to write your resume? Channel. Want to compose a piece of music? Channel. Want to understand how to handle a conflict with someone? Channel. The list is endless, as this is an inherent human ability we are all born with and meant to use anytime we wish.
The Divine channel will provide guidance which is most appropriate for the individual channeling, to enable them to live their magnificent possibility by being able to experience this state of "Oneness" on demand.
Is channeling the Divine similar to channeling other energy sources like angels, guides or masters?
No. At Dira, the fundamental premise is that there is a Supreme Source of everything, it can be referred to as the Supreme Being, God, Allah, Elohim, Supraconsciousness, universal consciousness, infinite energy etc. This ultimate source of everything is Omnipotent and Omniscient; unlike angels, guides, jinns, ancestors, spirit animals or masters, who only have limited perspective. Dira teaches how to access the infinite library, not just a book in the library, and when you access the infinite library you are then shown the appropriate book that is relevant for you.
Are there rituals related to being able to access The Divine?
No. The techniques taught are very simple, and there are no props, as this is a natural capacity of a human being, like seeing or hearing. You can enter into channel in a business meeting, at the beach, in the middle of a bustling street, anywhere that you are awake and hold intention.
Do I need a Guru or objects to be able to channel The Divine?
No. There is no intermediary between any human being and The Divine, and using an intermediary whether a person or object or image is unnecessary and attributes the connection to something other than The Divine.
Is Dira a religion or cult?
No. We teach a form of self hypnosis that enhances the direct experience of The Divine so that your thoughts and emotions do not interfere with that experience.
Do I have to believe in God?
Dira assumes the perspective of Oneness, that everything is interconnected and divinely orchestrated for a beautiful purpose, and the acknowledgement and belief in a Supreme Source of everything is a prerequisite to the experience. It is not associated to any particular religion or dogma, however the openness to experience the Supreme Universal Consciousness is necessary, and accepting that everything in existence is energetically connected.
Can everyone channel?
Yes. It is part of the human capacity, and most people channel but are not aware it is channeling. For example, when you have a gut feeling, or are composing music, or in the flow at work. Any time your conscious thoughts and emotions are set aside, and there is a flow of something through you that is not a result of the processing of your brain, you are channeling.
Dira teaches one how to enter into this state of flow on demand, like being able to flick a switch between being in this flow and being in a state of logical reasoning. A poet for example may wait for inspiration to flow and have "writer's block" without this technique, whereas Dira offers tools to be able to enter into the state of clear inspiration and intuition on demand whenever you want it.
How long does it take to learn how to channel?
That depends on the person’s openness to the experience. It can be instant, or not. It will happen when you are ready to listen and experience it. It is there for everyone, at any time, and any place.
Do I need to live a certain lifestyle to be able to channel?
No. Everyone is infinitely diverse, created with the purpose of experiencing and witnessing this diversity.
Does channeling contradict religion?
Channeling enhances connection, which is the intention of religion. This technique can be incorporated in all aspects of your life, including whatever form of worship you practice, if any. It is a tool to stop being distracted with your mind and thoughts to enable clear access to the Supreme Being.
How is channeling different than prayer?
If you consider prayer as a way for you to speak to Divine, channeling is a way for you to hear the response from Divine, where your mental thoughts do not interfere in the communication.
How do I know it is God flowing through me and not something else that could be scary?
The process ensures that the only vibration experienced is that of The Divine. By following the process and steps, one can assume that they are experiencing The Divine and they are in a Divine embrace.
How can God speak through me? Isn’t that only for special holy people?
The Divine is always speaking through you and to you in the form of intuition and insight, the question should be “Have you been listening?” Channeling and connection to The Divine is not dependent on whether or not you are holy enough, or good enough; it is dependent on if you are ready to listen and be consciously aware of that connection.
Can you describe the channeling experience?
The Divine is the state of oneness, and the human mind is in the state of duality. The experience of channeling the Divine as a vibration is that of bliss, infinite love, unlimited perspectives, and Omniscient guidance.
The manifestation of how channeling arises is unique to each individual as we are all uniquely diverse. Some people channel with their eyes open, some closed, some see images or light, others hear guidance, others feel a wave of energy, or have a knowing. You can be sitting, standing, lying down, running, it is up to the individual to be in a state most comfortable to listen, but there will be a clear distinction when you enter into the state of channel as you will be in a state of oneness, and the experience of that is different from a conscious mind waking state of duality.
The Divine will always communicates in the way that is appropriate for the individual.
Will I be aware of what is happening?
In channel you are consciously aware, but your thoughts do not interfere with the guidance. You may still have thoughts, but you will have an understanding or knowing what is your own thought and what is the Divine channel.
Can anyone manipulate me against my will when I am in a state of self-hypnosis for the purpose of channeling?
No. Channel is not something done to you, it is a state you enter into yourself when you are willing to connect to the Divine. You are also consciously aware in this state, and you can enter into the state or exit it at any moment you want to.
How will I know that I am actually channeling The Divine?
The experience is blissful and there is no fear. If you feel fear or the guidance is perpetuating fear then you are not in channel of The Divine. Fear is the frequency of separation and duality.
What blocks my capacity to channel The Divine clearly?
Everyone can channel The Divine, however the clarity of channel may vary. Acts or beliefs of deliberate separation distort your channel. For example, deliberately harming yourself or others, or trying to access other forms of channel other than The Divine.
Will channeling Divine make me heal my physical ailments?
Divine channeling will help you become aligned with your soul's purpose and expression. Physical dis-ease is a language for the soul to highlight dis-alignment of your thoughts and beliefs compared to what the soul knows as true and wants to express. Dira is not teaching a healing technique per se, it is an alignment technique, and healing is a by-product of alignment.
Is channeling the same as meditation?
The goal of meditation is to reduce thought activity and silence the mind through varying techniques and is a practice. Channeling is the bypassing of thought to allow Divine connection using hypnosis, so it is quick, instant and effective to quieten the mind and move into the expanded consciousness of Divine Oneness and the crown chakra perspective. Channeling can be used to enhance meditation or any other state of being where connection to The Divine is beneficial.
Furthermore, meditation focuses on you as 'the observer' that observes your thoughts. Channeling you can do that faster, but you move into an even higher level of consciousness of Oneness with Divine. In channel, by being connected to Divine, you experience the vibration and your layers are released just by being in that Divine vibration, and you also receive clear guidance instantaneously and a wider perspective of your current situation.
Furthermore, in channel your energetic body becomes stronger faster, your vibration transmutes and are able to be in alignment more effectively.
Is there and scientific research that demonstrates that channeling actually works?
The Institute of Noetic Sciences Discovery Lab (IONS) in California collected measures during Dira channeling states and normal mind-wandering states and analyzed the data for any differences between the two conditions in a study that was approved by the Institute of Noetic Sciences Institutional Review Board. Comparing Dira channeling and mind-wandering, the average scores of participants show evidence that demonstrates that the brain waves, generalized across the brain, are different in channel using the Dira method compared to that of a non-channel mind wandering state. Thhe full report is available on our research page.
Will drugs or alcohol affect the experience?
Psychotropic drugs and intoxication disintegrates the aura and the energetic body. The reason why people may experience "spiritual events" when using drugs like Ayahuasca or DMT is because the aura cracks and opens to other frequencies of vibrations. However, these frequencies may be low vibration and you will have no control of what enters into your aura nor what you can release from your aura, and these frequencies are not a Divine channel.
Dira considers that all psychotropic substances and intoxication distort the Divine channel as the aura is compromised, and therefore they should not be practiced together.
If someone is on prescribed psychotropic drug medication, then channeling should be practiced with an experienced facilitator.
Can channeling be used to harm others?
In Divine channel you are in a state of oneness, there are no others.
If the intention is to harm, you will not be able to enter into the state of a Divine Channel, as harming another is an act of separation and disconnection that contradicts Divine oneness.
There are people however in other schools of thought that "channel" other low vibratory frequencies with the intention of harming others, this is not a Divine channel and is not what Dira teaches, and one must realise that any harm done to another is done to the self.
Dira is very clear, that if one chooses to channel anything other than The Divine, it is not a part of our teachings, nor philosophy, nor practice, and we do not associate with such practices.
*Notice: Dira programs are for the facilitation of an experience of spiritual alignment with the soul and Divine light. They are not a replacement to any other form of therapy, medical intervention, or religion, and are only complementary. The by-product of alignment with Divinity through an experience, might enable release, however, we always recommend that one should address any discomfort, be it internal or external, at all levels of their being, including physically, emotionally, mentally, energetically and spiritually.
