Wikipedia, Mar. 14, 2014 (Mediumship (redirected from Channeler). Mediumship is the practice of certain people--known as mediums--to purportedly mediate communication between spirits of the dead and other human beings; Channeling can be seen as the modern form of the old mediumship, where the "channel" (or channeller) allegedly receives messages from "teaching-spirit", an "Ascended Master", from God, or from an angelic entity, but essentially through the filter of his own waking consciousness (or "Higher Self"))
