We've received the following copyright claim from Bashar Communications. In order to comply with it, we will have to edit/remove the following Inward Quest postings shortly.
To avoid legal problems for us, please do not post any further Bashar transcripts to Inward Quest.

A prime example of "pushing against" something bringing more focus to the thing you are trying to get rid of...
EDIT - Nov 11, 2016 - Abraham-Hicks YouTube Copyright Policy
I made a comment below in 2015 that Esther Hicks seemed to be pursuing a similar copyright clampdown on the Abraham teachings on YouTube. And around that time, it did seem that Abraham-Hicks Publications were making legal threats against those who posted recordings to YouTube in the same way that Bashar Communications has been and is doing.
Looking at the number of Abraham audios that people have been posting on YouTube since then, that clampdown seems to have stopped (which, if true, is more in line with what Abraham teach about copyright and "pushing against") so I thought I would add that information to my answer here.
Here's what is now on the official Abraham-Hicks YouTube channel:
So it seems that as long as you post audios (not video segments of workshops) of at most 15 minutes - and not multiple-part postings - and you obviously credit Abraham as the source for the material, you should be fine to post Abraham audios to YouTube :)
This answer is marked "community wiki".
Thank you for providing all those valuable channeled material. You are doing a great service and I really appreciate it. And of course it is your right to get the amount of money you believe you deserve for providing all this channeled information.
I just want to offer a different perspective regarding copyright claims in general (since this is a site where different perspectives get shared).
What I've been observing is that people especially tend to copy and share a lot of material when they believe that it's of high value. They don't tend to share products of low value a lot. And there is also another correlation between material that gets shared a lot and... wealth.
It's quite interesting that the wealthiest companies (e.g. Microsoft, Warner Music Group,...) in the world are the ones whose material gets shared and copied a lot more than material of not-so-wealthy companies who don't offer a lot of value.
What I'm suggesting is that maybe, if your material is getting copied and shared more and more often, it's not because you are losing more and more of your wealth, but because your wealth is growing.
Because it seems that the more people are willing to copy and share your material without wanting to pay for it, simultaneously a proportionate amount of people hear about your stuff who DO want to pay for it.
Maybe it's because it's free advertising, or maybe it's because it has to do with Bashar's third law ("What you put out, is what you get back").
However, it's quite interesting to observe for sure.
I'm seeing a weird mix of energies here, so I implore you all to take a deep breath :) All is well :)
Remember, there is no assertion in this attraction-based universe, so it doesn't matter what Bashar Communications does. You are in control of your well-being. It is not your job to figure this stuff out, that is law of attraction's job :) Your only job is to think harmonious thoughts. Only a stream of well-being flows, you need only allow it.
Any information you desire is all available to you now. All the energies in this world are trying their best to bring the information you desire to you now. All you need to do is get out of the way of yourself :)
Wouldn't it be nice to see how things begin to unfold in response to your desire?
Come on everyone, come join me! I'll be waiting for you here in the vortex, forever :)
Imagine how sweet it would of been if Darryl/Bashar got involved on Inward Quest and helped clear up peoples confusions with the teachings rather than threatening to sue with a copyright claim and limiting our ability to spread his message easily with references that link back to his site (mostly) probably bringing him more traffic anyway. I know I certainly discovered Bashar through this site, and without everyone's help would not of understood it and probably wouldn't of ever checked him out again let alone spent money on his work.

I think that there is something to what is sometimes called the law of attraction, positive thinking as well as the more established principles around self hypnosis techniques and meditation which is why I come to this site sometimes. I am not sure what the situation is in the case of Bashar Communications, but what I do think is that there are certain LOA teachers quoted on here who are actually making substantial sums from written materials and conferences that relieve people desperate for answers from their hard earned cash without providing too much in the way of concrete results. In particular, some of the articles on the internet about people seemingly channelling other worldly entities makes for worrying reading. Of course, everyone has to make there own mind up about the debunking articles that they read.
I would like to think that if I had any insights into how the Universe works and how to channel the ideas of using positive thinking for individual benefit, then I would share that info to all who need it without trying to make a personal fortune out of it or worrying about whether my material was copyrighted and being 'stolen' by other people. That is part of my drive to be a better person. If can help as many people as possible in the process of my individual self-improvement drive without expecting anything in the process, then I would be more than happy with that.
money money money not very enlighten also to spread the word about is creation and share brings him popularity and more money.
He did not give inwardquest quest money to spread is word. or does he feel that someone took what he created to make money at is expense?
Man created money and rule and law to help him self and other. But when is creation make division in him self and between other, I think that he shoot himself in the foot. meaning that it becomes counter productive. in this case inward quest made him more popular and some might have buy is(Bashar) creation can Bashar or any one say how many people saw Bashar stuff on inward quest and bought is creation? And how much Bashar made from that? or can Bashar say how much inward quest made by spreading the word about Bashar stuff?
I don't think so.
we know where is(Bashar) heart is. or what he(Bashar) value the most case closed. it is is choice. respect is choice as he should respect our choice.
And I agree with Simon to stop talking about Bashar so that we do not shoot our self in the foot also.
