Evolution of a Channeler

Thanks to the Internet, I’ve become cyberfriends with spiritually mindful people around the world. Many of them reside in Australia. I’ve had the good fortune to discover healer and channeler, Janice Hunneybell. She has published two books of channeled material from the unlikely source of the American singer, John Denver. Things That I Believe In and All You Need is Love are delightful, filled with inspirational insights written with a strong John Denver voice, especially the first book. 

I interviewed Jan via Skype to gain better insight into how her channeling talents evolved. Jan was born in post-World War II England. While she didn’t have the happiest of childhoods, she didn’t have the worst. She married and had children. She was “normal.”

Of course, like many of us, “normal” had its ups and downs. She enjoyed a fair amount of “women’s intuition,” but wouldn’t have put herself in a psychic category. Moving to Australia with her husband and children in 1989 sent her into an emotional tailspin. She missed England and struggled to find her footing in her new home. After wallowing in despair for several months, one day she was thinking about how unhappy she was when she heard a male voice in her mind, asking, Are you going to be miserable for the rest of your life or are you going to do something about it?

This was a new experience but she somehow knew this ‘voice’ cared and was challenging her to think differently, so she made a choice for change. Jan returned to study and later joined groups at a local healing center. 

One early morning in 1996 she awoke at 4:30 and heard a voice say, you can heal with these hands. Reiki soon came into her life – she didn’t know what it was, but knew she had to do it. After receiving treatments, she signed up for a Reiki I class and received the level one attunement.

Jan recalled, “During the night after the Reiki I attunement I woke and had the sense of being surrounded by many people, including one bigger, more powerful being. I felt a surge of energy and went back to sleep. When I woke again I wondered what had happened to me and heard the words ‘integration of self.’ A few days later, in meditation, I felt myself growing, a little like Alice in Wonderland. I expanded into the clouds, yet felt the earth was still beneath my feet. I was surrounded by guides and angels. Jesus was there, which surprised me because I wasn’t a follower, although I believed in him. He spoke with me and at the end, two angels, one pink and one blue, stood either side of me. They shrank before my eyes and went into my ears! I heard them say, we are with you always.”

She became clairaudient. Poems poured into her mind. She worked with healing energy, studied healing modalities, attended classes, and followed her Higher Self inner wisdom. By 1997 she felt she needed to open herself to channeling.

She received an energy treatment from her Reiki Master. “I felt like I was going through a birth canal,” she said. 

During an afternoon with her spiritual teacher, her first guide, Arthur, came through. He helped her calm the chatter of mind talk to be an effective channel. Arthur exemplified unconditional love. He shared his philosophy and became a treasured teacher. Later, on a trip to England she visited Glastonbury, the ancient home and burial grounds of the fabled King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. Walking the gardens she became overwhelmed with emotion and heard, I am Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon. Was her guide, Arthur, the spirit of the Arthurian legends? 

Jan smiles wistfully, “It can’t be proven, but I like to think so.”

At any rate, the door to channeling opened in her mind. She received messages from many nonphysical beings, including some historical figures such as Mother Mary and St. Francis. In September of that year a medium told her to expect an American connection and saw a crashed biplane.

JD Speaks

628x471 On Sunday the 12th of October 1997 John Denver died when his two-seater plane crashed into the ocean off the coast of California. It was Monday the 13th in Australia. Six days later, Jan felt a spike of emotion, a huge smile spread across her face and she heard, good afternoon, it’s lovely to be here. John Denver became a regular visitor, often giving her beautiful lyrics to songs.

By September of 2001, she knew she would be writing a book, but didn’t know what it would be. She had grown in her ability to focus and channel for significant periods of time. She agreed to devote two hours a day to the project. JD began to dictate. The book came through over the course of one month, with very little editing needed. Things That I Believe In communicated the words and wisdom of John Denver, a passionate man who loved music, life, and the planet. Even in the nonphysical state, he still wanted to make a positive impact on the world. The book’s description says:

Through the mediumship of Janice Hunneybell, John, a singer, songwriter and environmentalist, communicates from beyond with the message that human consciousness continues after physical death. He shares his thoughts on life’s deepest questions – what happens when we die and why we are here – and talks about forgiveness, gratitude, fear and many other subjects in an informal but informative way, illustrating his message with personal examples. With the wisdom of hindsight, having looked back on the lessons of his own life and also having learned a great deal since his dramatic exit from the physical world, John gives his opinion on how to make the most of the life we have. 

Getting the book from a raw manuscript to publication was a learning journey. Much like A Course In Miracles that began merely being copied on copy machines and passed around, Things That I Believe In was first read by members of the Spiritualist Church in Melbourne in a similar manner. People began encouraging Jan to have it published and available to the mass market. With the rise of digital publishing, both books of JD’s words of wisdom and love are finding a global audience.

All You Need is Love came through later with more pure information and less of the John Denver personality. When asked why much of the information came as voiceless words rather than in John’s voice, Spirit told her it took less energy to transmit the information that way. When she re-read the manuscript, John’s presence and voice was with her once more, adding additional insights as she reviewed what had been written – and reassuring her that these were his words.

Both books offer inspiration and encouragement from beyond the veil for people to make the most of their time on earth.

Jan continues her spiritual journey. JD appears to have moved on, but she has a growing healing and mediumship practice. Visit her Facebook site Janice Hunneybell — Inspired Thoughts to glimpse inside the mind of a gifted medium channel.

Christmas Wishes from Jan Hunneybell

 

 

 

Thanks to Australian author, Jan Hunneybell, for sharing this lovely Christmas poem. Her fascinating book of singer John Denver’s spirit communication, Things That I Believe In, is available in the Kindle store. You don’t want to miss it! John Denver was surely someone who expressed the spirit of Christmas in his songs and life mission.

CHRISTMAS WISHES

christmasIf I could have a wish for Christmas, this is what I’d choose;
A day of peace and joy for all; no fight, no win or lose,
Just sweet content, acceptance and a star to light our way;
For lasting peace to fill each heart every night and day.

If I could have a wish for Christmas, just what would it be?
That love was wrapped within each present underneath the tree;
Not competition, whose is best, who spent the most on theirs,
But joyful giving, care, concern and boxes full of prayers.

If I could have a wish for Christmas, for what would I ask?
Flashy, fancy trinkets? Gadgets for each task?
No; I’d ask for cruelty to end and war to cease.
I’d ask for understanding and a way to perfect peace.

If I could have a wish for Christmas underneath the sun,
I’d ask for everyone to understand that we’re all one,
That every hurt we do to others we do to ourselves,
And painful hurts can’t be undone by presents on the shelves.

forgiveIf I could have a wish for Christmas hoping all would hear,
I’d ask for kind and loving ways to last all through the year,
For all to know that how you treat each other matters more
Than mistletoe and Christmas trees or wreaths upon the door.

If I could have a wish for Christmas I would wish for you
That happiness, content and kindness bless you all year through,
That true forgiveness fills your heart, releasing you from pain,
And freed from all resentment, you feel joyful once again.

If I could have a wish for Christmas and the year that’s new,
I know the greatest gift I’d choose to have and give to you.
I’d gift you with true peace of mind and free your troubled heart,
Then, cleared of negativity, a shiny bright new start.

If I could have a wish for Christmas, I would heal the Earth;
The lands, the seas, the hills and trees would undergo rebirth,
And people would all see each other from a different view,
With love and light, a wondrous sight, and start to live anew.

John Denver Messages of Wisdom and Love

 

Dana Review by Dana Taylor

Australian spiritual author, Janice Hunneybell, has collaborated with the spirit of singer, John Denver, on two of the best channeled books I have read. THINGS THAT I BELIEVE IN and ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE are inspirational guideposts to wise living. Sure, I can hear the skeptics scoffing–John Denver?  “Rocky Mountain High.”  She was high on something, alright. All I can say is, read with an open mind. The voice of the material certainly sounds like it could come from John Denver, especially THINGS THAT I BELIEVE IN. Interestingly, there seemed to be less “voice” in ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE and Jan addresses that in her ending words about the writing experience. Yet, the wisdom is all there.

The truth is, the source of the material hardly matters, because the spiritual insights are so solid. These are good principles for living. The ultimate message is one of hope and joy. I read the books slowly, to begin my days and lead into meditation and prayer time. I recommend them for anyone consciously seeking a spiritual journey.
