Discernment

All Spirit Library readers are encouraged to use their Inner Guidance to discern all the content available in the library. We always invite people to take only what resonates within and gives a sense of Empowerment and Well-Being and leave all the rest.

The library currently features thousands of inspiring, thought-provoking and unique spiritual articles and channelings. However, with information coming from so many sources, it is important for everyone to use discernment at all times especially in the case of channelled materials (read more about channeling below). The channeling may well be coming from Spirit, but it passes through the human channeller who acts as a filter with the potential to add their own view point to the message.

Everyone's path and taste is unique though and people might have different perceptions and opinions on the material provided here. We invite you to allow others truth and trust that everyone knows what is the best for themselves.

As when you go in the library of your own town and you only pick the books you like, then you don't pretend that all the ones you don't like should be destroyed. In the same way we believe that through law of attraction everyone will be attracted to what is uplifting and therefore there is no need to push against others's choices.

We would also like to suggest the following guidelines on how to practice discernment.

Guidelines On Discernment - New Realities Magazine - July 1987

  1. There will always be useful information for everyone. Beware of the channel that gives you useful information for only a few, or tells you that it's only for a special group or a sequestered number. It must be useful for ALL humanity, every single Human. This is an area of discernment allowing you to know you are hearing the truth.
  2. The message should be uplifting. Watch for an empowering message - NOT ONE OF FEAR, not one that drags you down - not one that makes you want to take fearful action or hide - but an enabling message! This is a staple of God energy. It must be there. It should inspire the listener and reader. Every recorded angel appearance before a Human Being has begun with "Fear not!"
  3. Spirit (God) will never, ever channel a message that asks you to give up your free will. Never! For your free will is what your experience on Earth is all about as you sit in your "chairs of gold" (a metaphor created in Kryon Book Six). Free will! FREE CHOICE is what drives your future.
  4. Spirit will never give you a message - ever - that asks you to violate the integrity of what you believe. You are honored in your thought processes. Spirit will never trick you or "talk you" into anything. The message must never violate your integrity. You must feel comfortable with it, and it must ring true to your heart.
  5. Spirit will never represent a channeller as being the only source. Watch for this, for there are many channels of Spirit and they all coordinate their information to create a bigger picture, especially in this New Age. They will NEVER represent themselves as the ONLY source of information.
  6. Watch for the fact that the information is normally new information. Beware of the channel that simply re-hashes the old, for they are not channelling anything but the ego of the Human Being. New information is necessary. It is the entire reason for the channel. Think about it.
  7. Watch for the fact that channelled information should have spiritual solutions presented. Solutions to life challenges on Earth, via new information, is the purpose of channelling.

Lee Carroll (of Kryon.com) on Discernment:

The next time you sit before a channel or read a transcription, consider these seven items presented above. As you listen to or read the words of a channeller, also try to ask "what is the intent of the human speaking?" Is there any ego or Human agenda? If you detect it... then stop. There cannot be Human ego present for the information to be accurate and true. Spirit demands this of the channeller... I know. I also know from over twelve years of live channeling experience that the message will ALWAYS be filled with love, and not fear. Watch for this!

Do you "recognize" the energy as familiar and feeling like "home?" This is another key. If you don't, and you can't identify with the entity or entities that are channelling through the Human, then perhaps you should pass on the message for now. Not all channelling is from an entity. Much of it comes form your own spiritual center. Don't always try to determine "who" it is, asking for a name or trying to put skin and bones to it. Consider that your core is the Love of God... and is also able to give YOU messages for YOU.

About Channeling

Channeling (or Channelling) is the process of communicating with any consciousness that is not in human form by allowing that consciousness to express itself through an individual, the channeler.

The most common form of communication with non-physical consciousness has been with people who have passed on, but that is usually referred to as "mediumship" rather than channeling. Channeling usually refers to accessing higher knowledge in order to support spiritual growth and to gain greater clarity about one's life.

Channeling is a method used to access information from entities that are supposedly more evolved and could therefore enlighten us as we move through the evolution of consciousness and back to source.

Everything is vibrational. When one channels, they are tapping into, plugging into, the frequency of the grid program in which we experience. It's like tuning in a radio. Each station, or energy plug-in, brings a specific frequency of information that we sometimes associate with colours, chakras and tones and specific evolved beings such as angels, archangels, ascended masters and teachers.

Channeling has always been part of the human connection to a higher vibration of thought so isn't a total new process. What's new is how it is perceived and received nowadays and its quick expansion in recent decades.

The holy books of all major the religions were said to be passed from Gods, messiahs, prophets, angels. However the religions often teach that these messages can only be passed to special 'approved' men and women. Modern channelers tell a different story, that anyone has the ability to channel and receive information from a higher source and this could well be the reason of the huge amount of channeled information now available.

Supported by the entity they channel a broader view on the the current energies available on the planet and how humanity is being affected by it. They can provide a guidance through these difficult transformational times.
