I got a inspiration to research channeling- and i followed it of course!
I started by looking on youtube and of course, this forum- and in one of the questions tagged 'channeling', Stingray recommended to read a book by Sanaya Roman called Opening to Channel- How to Connect with your Guide. So naturally, i read the book.
In the book, the author describes what is a 'channeled' state as follows:
"...The times when inspiration flows effortlessly are similair to the channeled state. Most of you have had brief experiences of a channeling-like space, such as talking to a friend in need, feeling wisdom flow through you and saying things you had not originally intended to say. The moments you feel deep love for a friend, awe for a beautiful sunrise, appreciation for the beauty of a flower, or the reverence of deep prayer all contain elements of this state of consciousness. When a very clear internal voice tells you things that come from a higher level than your normal thoughts, when you are teaching others and suddenly feel inspired, when you feel an impulse to say unexpected and wise things or touch in unusual and healing ways, you may be experiencing elements of how a channeled state feels. The channeling state creates subtle changes in your perception of reality. Channeling usually causes a change in your breathing and sensations in your upper body..."
So after reading this i was like..wait, i thought that was what being in the vortex was. I did not know i was channeling something- i thought i was in the vortex and that it was ME being in my natural state of bliss how i was supposed to feel like here on earth...joyful exited and blissful. I thought it was me reaching that point of ease and flow and tingeling in my hands was me being in the vortex- being and feeling as i intended to feel when i decided to come into this body. But now i see that it wasnt me- it was a channeled state? i dont get it..what is the vortex then? could someone please explain? was i in the vortex or was i channeling bashar here
what is in the vortex then?

It's all about intention really.
With the "Channeling" state, which Abraham refers to as blending, you hold an intention to receive information while you are in the good-feeling state. (You can actually "channel" without feeling good - as you can with manifesting in general - but you really don't want to play that game if you want a happy life)
With Vortex alignment, you are holding an intention to become one of the frequency matches (a co-operative component) that make up the Vortex, thereby matching up to everything else that's in your Vortex ( i.e. making your elevator rise to the floor containing the stuff you want ).
With Meditation, as another example, you are holding an intention to be free of conscious thought so you just enjoy (and practice) the free-flowing of Universal Energy through you.
To someone watching you as an outside observer, you may seem to be engaging in the same activity each time but, internally, you are holding very different intentions for each one.

The vortex and the channeling state are the same.
when you are in the state of allowing you're in the vortex/channeling.
It just depends how much you allow and for how long.
for example - when Ester Hicks channels she is letting go of all her thoughts and allow for a very long time. she isn't get distructed by anything. it isn't that easy (but possible of course).
it is easier to allow in a quiet place when we feel safe and free like in meditation.
the problem is - we get destructed very easily. with practice anyone can allow more and more and for longer time.

Its like Source and Inner Being. They have different names but they both mean the same thing. I guess some people would be more comfortable with 'Getting into their own Vortex' rather than 'Channeling their spirit Guide'
