Lord Sananda on Accuracy of Channeled Messages
Received by Sal Rachele
August 19, 2005
Greetings, beloveds, this is Sananda at your service. I understand we have
Questioner: Yes. Sananda, I would like you to talk about how to discern
the accuracy of channeled material. Why is there so much apparent inaccuracy?
Why does one message, purportedly from you, contradict another message,
also purportedly from you? Is there any way to truly clear up this confusion?
Sananda: A most excellent question, one of the best you could ask. First
of all, let me issue a disclaimer. There are no guarantees that this message
is 100% accurate. There are no guarantees that any message is 100% accurate.
This is unfortunate, but it is the nature of communication in the third
dimension. Let me explain.
To begin, let us look at the ways a message can become distorted:
Situation #1: The entity originating the message does not have all the
facts, or has a distorted perception of the facts. Okay, this one is hard
for a lot of you to swallow. For some reason, just because an entity is not
from Earth, or has a fancy-sounding name, or hails from a particular dimension
or density, there is a prevailing attitude that the entity is all-wise and
all-knowing. While it may be true that such entity has a broader perspective
than someone caught in the daily drama of Earth, this in no way guarantees
that the entity is perceiving accurately. Even in the so-called higher dimensions,
there is the possibility for inaccurate or distorted perception. In fact,
this is one of the primary reasons why channeled information is often inaccurate.
Situation #2: The entity has difficulty conveying its ideas accurately
to the channel. Perhaps the entity has a good overview of the situation
at hand, but lacks the experience in conveying the ideas to the channel.
This can happen for a variety of reasons. If there is a large gap between
the vibration of the entity and the vibration of the channel, accurately
conveying the message may require several levels of translation. The information
may arrive into the channel’s consciousness through what are known as “energy
packets” or quanta of intelligent energy, which then must be translated into
the channel’s spoken language of choice (English in the case of this discourse).
The entity may choose a word or phrase from the channel’s language and use
it in a manner quite different from the way such word or phrase is commonly
understood by readers of the material. For example, in “A Course In Miracles”,
channeled by Helen Shucman from yours truly, the word “knowledge” is used
interchangeably with the idea of enlightenment, while to some, knowledge
simply means that gathering and storing of facts in memory.
Situation #3: The channel has a distorted perception of reality and is
trying to fit the teachings of the entity into an inaccurate framework.
This distortion is perhaps a bit more difficult to track and recognize.
Every channel has Earthly issues and experiences which are used as a filter
for new experiences. The level of awareness and evolution of the channel
influence the quality of the channeling to a great degree. This is one reason
the channel of this message did not begin publicly disseminating my information
until quite recently. He did not want to take a chance that the message
would be distorted by his own background, mannerisms, ideas, etc.
Situation #4: Deliberate deception and fraud. It is unfortunate, but there
are many entities who are not what they claim to be. These entities have
hidden or overt agendas and are using human channels to further their own
selfish purposes. They will intentionally deceive channels into believing
what the entity thinks they should believe. At the same time, an entity might
be well-meaning, but the channel may have a hidden agenda and deliberately
distort the messages in order to serve a selfish agenda. This scenario seldom
happens when both the entity and the channel have a relatively high level
of awareness. However, there are many entities and channels claiming to be
someone or something that they are not.
Situation #5: The effects of free will, especially on prophecy, are variable.
Even if the entity and channel are pure and clear, and the message is successfully
transmitted through the channel with accurate information, that information
can change, due to free will. Any psychic or prophet can be proven wrong
simply by a free will choice to change the outcome of a prediction. This
is why true channels and benevolent entities will never claim 100% accuracy,
especially when making predictions. Some prophecies are designed to be simply
warnings, and the entity may issue the prophecy with the express intention
that it be proven wrong. A loving entity does not desire to see death and
destruction, yet may give a prophecy describing such in the hopes that it
will spur action to prevent the manifestation of the prophecy. You may have
heard the expression, “A failed prophecy is a successful prophecy.”
Beloveds, it is not easy discerning accurate information when living in
the third dimension. We offer you our utmost respect, appreciation for what
you are going through on Earth at this time, and our sincerest gratitude that
you have chosen this mission. We are here to assist you in any way possible.
We know it is not easy. We never said it would be easy. Nevertheless, you
live in exciting times when new possibilities are being brought forth and
new ways of living are being made available to you that have never before
A great time of awakening is at hand. In order to awaken fully, all that
is false must be brought to the surface to be healed. This is what you are
seeing at this time. Above all else, remember that the love of your Creator,
and your awareness that your Creator lives, moves and has its being within
you, is your greatest defense against illusions. Go within, beloveds. Go
deep within to the Source of your Being. The truth is found there, and nowhere
else. All else will be distorted on some level. Everything I say, or everything
another channel or entity says, should be taken within and held up to scrutiny.
How does it feel? What do you know in your heart to be true? Does the information
truly assist you on your path? Yes, we have been through all this before,
but daily there are channeled messages being bantered back and forth that
contradict one another, so a reminder is in order. Go within, beloveds.
Go to the Source of your Being. I am Sananda, bringing you joy, love and
