Excerpted from the Introduction chapter of The Aaron/Q’uo Dialogues: An Extraordinary Conversation between Two Spiritual Guides by Barbara Brodsky and Carla Rueckert.
Carla: I had met Don Elkins, a college professor and a researcher into the paranormal and UFOs, when I was an undergraduate English Literature major in college. In 1962, I began attending his experimental meditation group. Donâ€™s experiment had to do with creating UFO contactee messages. It was quite successful. However, I was not particularly interested in becoming a channel at that time. I obtained a masterâ€™s degree in Library Science, and worked for six years as a librarian. In 1970, Don hired me as a research assistant and my path began to stray from the orthodox. We investigated everything from ghosts to UFO close encounters of the third kind. By 1974, all of the channels that the group had developed had moved away from Louisville or become disinterested in continuing the channeling experiment. Don asked me to attempt channeling in order to continue the experiment, and I agreed. I have been channeling ever since.
In 1980, Donâ€™s and my partnership became a nonprofit organization, L/L Research. We were fortunate enough to produce books that were entirely channeled. In addition, I launched a writing career, producing books by me concerning channeling and other metaphysical topics.
When I first began channeling, my contact was almost always Hatonn. Hatonn describes its group as a fourth-density entity. Fourth density, the density of love, is the next level above our own third density here on Earth. As I continued to refine my ways of tuning, I began getting a group called Latwii, which describes itself as coming from the density of wisdom or fifth density.
In 1981, shortly after I began asking for the highest and best contact through which I could carry the vibration of Jesus the Christ, I began receiving information from Ra. You may be sure that I challenged this group long and hard because I did not at all like the fact that this name was familiar to me from the pages of Egyptian mythology. However, they were able consistently to respond to my challenges, and I accepted their contact.
Because they were of the sixth density or the density of unity, their vibratory level was extremely fine-tuned and I could receive this group only when in trance. Don Elkins, Jim McCarty, and I worked with those of Ra until 1984 when Don died. I knew better than to try to access this vibration without Don in the circle, for those of Ra had specifically suggested to me that Don was integral to the contact. So I retired from channeling in trance and continued consciously channeling Hatonn, Latwii, and other Confederation sources of the fourth and fifth densities.
Two years later, I received my first communication from those of Qâ€™uo. In good time we thought to ask Qâ€™uo who they were, and they replied that they were a â€śprincipleâ€ť from the Confederation of Planets. They had formed the principle specifically in order to honor my request that I channel in a conscious and stable manner the vibration of Jesus the Christ.
Hatonn was part of the principle of Qâ€™uo, offering the fourth density vibration of unconditional and complete love. Latwii did the actual speaking for the group. And Ra, who is also Latwiiâ€™s teacher, was the behind-the-scenes consultant. In this way, they were able to come the closest possible to responding to my request for the best possible positively oriented information I could stably receive and share with those who might find it useful.
Channeling and Polarity
Youâ€™ll notice that, like Barbara, I assign great importance to tuning myself for channeling and also to the process of challenging spirits. This is because, in my understanding, we dwell in a world of strongly contrasting positive and negative polarity here in third-density Earth today. Barbara uses our positive and negative intention to describe polarity. The Confederation entitiesâ€™ definition of polarity is wholly compatible, but they offer a slightly different perspective. They define polarity in terms of service. They explain that this is the density of choice. There are two ways of serving the Creator and we are here to make that choice. Positive polarity consists of living, thinking, and acting in service to others, whereas negative polarity is involved with thinking of and seeing the world as that which may be of service to self. To positive-polarity thinkers, all of the creation is one thing and that one thing is love. For negative-polarity thinkers, the world is neatly divided into the self and all others. â€śRightâ€ť for the negatively oriented seeker consists in using all those about him as they help him. So some channeled material is very positive in orientation. Some channeled material is very negative in orientation. And a lot of channeled material is of mixed polarity.
As a channel, I have come to feel that my work preparatory to channeling has to do with tuning my own vibrational level to my highest and best. I think all of us are instruments, able to receive and transmit vibrations or frequencies, much like radios or televisions. We pick up information from the creation that is compatible in vibratory level with our tuning. In order to be a better channel for positive information, then, I tune myself with prayer, singing, chanting, and whatever else aids me in achieving my highest stable personal tuning before I open my instrument to receive a source. I then challenge whatever spirit responds to me in the name of that which I hold so dear that I would die for it if necessary. As a mystical Christian, that means that I challenge spirits in the name of Jesus the Christ.
When reading channeled material, I encourage you to look for the marks of positive channelingâ€”fearlessness, serenity, compassion, and inclusivity. There are many channels who have begun by being very positive in their vibration and who have descended into mixed polarity in their messages. Perhaps the best advice I can give anyone who wishes to identify positive channeling is to follow your own feelings. If instead of serenity, joy, and love, a channeled source begins to invoke in you feelings of fear and doom, then you have probably encountered mixed or negatively polarized material. Please trust your discrimination as you explore channeled material. You will know what is right for you because it will resonate within you as though it were something that you already knew but had just forgotten temporarily.
Barbara and I both grew up with a deep inner sense of our own spirituality and both of us have been able in our adult lives to live out our positive values. So we both are positively oriented channels. And we feel privileged to have become able to channel messages of love sent by Aaron and Qâ€™uo.
