Everyone channels everyday
Everyone channels their higher self everyday. It’s all very natural. By all means trust your inner guidance.
You know when a good idea just “pops” into your head? That’s your higher self speaking. Likewise when you type out something and it uses words you never use and is much better than what you are used to seeing from yourself (automatic writing), here you are also channeling your higher self.
Don’t be against all channeling. Listen to all the messages no matter the messenger and use your own inner discernment to develop your own truth.
