I have been a professional channel for 30 years. I channel Sananda, Kudos, 7 Spirit Dolphins and Lela, my High Self. Over the years I have received very specific guidance for my spiritual growth, healing and everyday life problem solving. I became accustomed to receiving this wonderful helpful guidance, when all of a sudden it stopped.
I had been channeling for about 12 years and happily receiving helpful suggestions for any number of topics when it just stopped, though I knew my guides were present. I would get into my usual quiet space and get ready to channel and ask my question, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”
Each day I would pray and get into my “channeling space” and ask again, and I would hear, “Be still and Know that I Am God.”
This was a very challenging time of my life as my daughter and I were caretakers of a 2,000 acre ranch. She was only 10 years old, and we were pretty much on our own discovering how to live in the country and take care of horses, chickens, dogs, cats, a hamster and a bunny, while assisting the owners in developing the ranch. I was feeling this is not the time for my channeling to stop.
In a very real sense it hadn’t stopped, it had changed. I found I had many synchronicities each day and was moved to be right where I needed to be each day. I was feeling happy and peaceful as my daughter had always wanted a horse and one of my dreams of getting to know wild animals “personally” was coming true. Several times the same owl would greet us as we drove up the two-mile dirt driveway. It would fly right alongside us. We grew to know and be familiar with badgers, hawks, wild boar, a fox, a weasel, skunks, bobcats and, of course, our farm animals.
Still, each day, I would meditate and pray, though no direct information came except, “Be still and Know that I Am God.” This did give me peace and the thought, “OK, I will do my best at that.”
This same process continued for two years, until one day I shouted, “What does this mean??” When I “heard” in the silence the sweetest voice saying, “I just want you to know me in the silence.”
The presence was so tender and loving that I felt very foolish at not recognizing that during this time period I was getting guidance from the still silence. My own intuition was stronger, and I was growing spiritually.
After this day, my channeling resumed and I began to receive very specific guidance again, but it became more a part of my whole self– the feeling of always being connected and cherished by the Divine presence within me. “Be still and Know that I Am God” has become a practice and preamble to my channeling. So, I highly recommend the stillness that can be found within you while walking, doing the dishes, gardening or doing just about anything. Peace, joy and love will shine through you as that is who you are.

Oh yes, I agree, being comfortable with that silence, and resting in it, is the ultimate prayer. It allows us to experience true Love. I’ve found that uttering grievances and concerns, or making requests to God might help alleviate my fears, but it is only as I get above them, by lifting into the Consciousness that knows no fear, that the troubles get resolved in miraculous ways. It’s a beautiful moment indeed when the mental sense of a gap between us and our Loving Creator dissolves. What a wonderful lesson for all of us!
