Here she describes how, as a child, she was exposed to the channeling practiced by her grandmother and uncle. She explains that she defines channeling very broadly to include a wide range of experiences from intuition, to ESP, to trance mediumship. She notes that the Institute of Noetic Sciences is engaged in a program of channeling research that includes both physiological and psychological studies. One of their findings is that channelers, almost universally, report that the experience has been positive for themselves. Another finding is that over 80% of the population have had an experience that fits the broad definition of channeling.
