What is channeling?
Channeling is a method of communication where an individual acts as a conduit for a nonphysical entity to share information with the physical world. The channeler goes into a trance-like state and the entity speaks through them.
Some people are born with the ability to channel, but it can also be learned. Esther Hicks began channeling Abraham in the 1980s.
Abraham is a group of non-physical entities that offer guidance on everything from relationships to career advice. Esther Hicks is the primary channel for Abraham, but other individuals say they channel Abraham as well.
The information that Abraham shares is meant to help people live better lives and achieve their goals. The teachings of Abraham are based on the law of attraction, which is the belief that like attracts like.

Well-known channelers include:
– Edgar Cayce: an American who channeled health information, dreams, past lives, and prophecy.
– Jane Roberts: an American who channeled an entity named Seth.
– Helen Schucman: an American who channeled the entity known as Jesus Christ.
– Michael Tamura: a Japanese-American who channels his higher self.
– Lee Carroll: an American who channels Kryon, an entity that speaks about Earth changes and the shift in consciousness.
How do the teachings of other channels differ from Esther Hicks and Abraham?
