Both Jung and the Buddha were consummate psychotherapists, both were compassionate and practical teachers of dreamers. The major difference seems to be that Jung lacked religious faith; he was bound by his senses and he saw dreams as a means of achieving peace and psychic wholeness in this life. Dreams for Jung opened a door into the individuated Self. For the Buddha, dreams opened a door into the ultimately empty and selfless nature of all dharmas. This emptying out of the self in turn made possible the liberating vision of Great Compassion, which sees all beings as sharing the same body and substance. - Rev. Heng Sure

Spiritualism is a belief that spirits of the dead have both the ability and the inclination to communicate with the living.
So while researching Spiritualism, the 18th-19th- early 20th century movement, I came to another avenue to studying of channeling I had not really considered before. Abraham and the like I suppose I would term New Age Channels. But from the perspective of the spiritualist lens there is a whole plethora of stuff I have only just begun to explore. Here is just one, a "spirit" named Hai and other "spirits" called the "Phoenix Spirit Group".
Spiritualists often set March 31, 1848, as the beginning of their movement. On that date, Kate and Margaret Fox, of Hydesville, New York, reported that they had made contact with a spirit. Common shared beliefs of Spiritualist: A belief in spirit communication. ~ A belief that the soul continues to exist after the death of the physical body. ~ Personal responsibility for life circumstances. ~ Even after death it is possible for the soul to learn and improve ~ A belief in a God, often referred to as "Infinite Intelligence". ~ The natural world considered as an expression of said intelligence.

amongst them the lack of Western initiation rites and the lack of strong father figures and role models.

A hypnopompic state (or hypnopomp) is the state of consciousness leading out of sleep, a term coined by the psychical researcher Frederic Myers. Its mirror is the hypnagogic state at sleep onset; though often conflated, the two states are not identical. Many have said that these states are when channeling often occurs. Channeling has been described as "the communication of information to or through a physically embodied human being from a source on some other level or dimension of reality other than the physical as we know it."

The Coming Science
1908 by Hereward Carrington
2-UP ~ PDF ~ Full Text
PREFACE: In presenting the following bode to the public, I wish to say, first of all, that I must not be understood as endorsing or even as accepting all the views and theories that are advanced, from time to time, throughout the book. I have offered these merely tentatively, and merely as possible explanations for fiu;ts that, on the strength of existing testimony, I have assumed to be established. Readers of my other more cautious books upon this and other subjects will see that I have not been unwary in approaching this question; and I do not wish to draw upon myself the charge of credulity merely because I have presented certain theories in this book that, from the standpoint of orthodox science, may appear somewhat ^ wild.^ Having absolved myself in this manner, I leave the reader to find in the text what- ever he can of interest or profit.
Psychical Phenomena and the War Published 1918
PDF ~ Full Text
PREFACE:"The present book is an attempt to study the psychological forces at work in the present world war; and for this purpose I have divided the book into two portions : Part I dealing with psychology proper, - applied to the minds of nations and of individuals; Part II to psychical or supernormal phenomena, - largely of a
spiritistic character, - which have been observed to occur at various times, and of which the present war furnishes many fresh examples. Thus Part I may be said to study the mind of the soldier up to the point where he is killed in action; while Part II continues our study of the same soldier after his death. We thus extend our inquiry into the realms of the vast Beyond, - and seek to bring back from that Unknown Land definite knowledge of those who sojourn there."

"The following book, "Your Psychic Powers: and How to Develop Them," was originally written for circulation semi-privately among the members of a number of psychical and spiritualistic Societies in New York and
vicinity, and is, for that reason, decidedly positive and spiritistic in tone. It states facts dogmatically, and
does not attempt to defend the statements made by any show of argument."
PREFACE:"In the following pages I have dealt chiefly with the mental or psychological phenomena of psychical re-
search, and have not touched upon the ' ' physical ' ' manifestations to any extent. The book is mostly theoretical
and constructive in tone; and, because of its speculative character, it may, perhaps, prove of value to future
