Have you never heard of "the muse"? Do you think that's some kind of fairy tale? Have you never heard someone like Willie Nelson speak of plucking his songs out of the air, like fruit? That's channeling, my friend. Channeling does not have to conscious on the part of the recipient. In most cases, it is not. There are souls in the astral who make music, and who said it to the earthplane where psychic and musically oriented people can pick it up.
By my definition of channeling, I channel every day of my life.
My sources are my musician friends--including my significant other--who channel, and of course myself.

There is no difference between that kind of "inspiration" and channeling. They are simply not conscious of the sender.

How do you know how they are conveyed? Do you think there is some giant juke box in the astral cranking out music? Souls do this work--souls who's job it is... What's the difference between "tapping into" something and channeling? IMO, you just don't like the word. Too esoteric, I guess...
Become psychic, work at it, and you will understand.
