Although modern physicists have various ideas about the universe, they do agree that every bit of it consists of energy. It may be a tiny bit of energy, or it may be enough to generate all of creation, but all matter is energy. Because energy is the power that causes every action and reaction in creation, it is handily available in many forms. One form that we know well is the human soul or spirit, a non-physical expression of energy.A channel, as the word implies, is a conduit, neither more nor less. It is a pipeline open at both ends. The energy that connects the beings on either end travels both ways. That is all channeling is: the transmission of energy expressed as thought or emotion between a spirit energy and a human receiver and back again.
