Today I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 2 of the Virtual Blog Tour for A New Dawn Awaits by author E.Dee Conrad. I have been fortunate to receive an advance copy of her book, and it is a fascinating read that I recommend to everyone looking for some insight! There’s something there to ponder on each page, and at times I felt that the book was speaking directly to me as I was reading!

A New Dawn Awaits is a compassionate and inspiring channelled collection of short inspirational reflections, bringing together wisdom of the ages, showing us how to access knowledge that has been part of our consciousness, but has been dormant, for eons. E.Dee’s intention in writing this book is to help readers reach inwards into their divine essence and outwards to the energy that connects us as one humanity.

Yesterday, E.Dee visited Suzie Cheel’s blog .

For today’s stop on the tour, I thought it would be interesting to interview E.Dee on the topic of how she got started channeling and the main message of her book.

Alice: How did you get started channeling, and how did you know that what you were receiving was separate from your own conscious thought?

E.Dee: I first became interested in channeling because I wanted to be a medical intuitive. I thought it would be a great way to help people and to give back to society. Over time, I was steered towards writing a book instead!

I know something is a conscious thought by how it “feels”. When I channel, I don’t hear a voice. Rather, I “feel” the imprint of words in my brain that I then translate into actual words – almost like telepathy. If it is a conscious thought, i.e., one from my logical mind, it has a very different sensation than one that is channeled. A channeled thought has kind of an airy/floating feeling. Having said this, if I am emotionally (usually fear) involved in whatever it is I am trying to channel on, it is hard for me to be sure I am not just talking to myself!

Alice: How did you refine your ability to channel?

E.Dee: Practice, practice, practice. I also began meditating on a quasi-regular basis. For me, the calmer and more still my mind is, the clearer I “hear” or feel the words.

Alice: What do you hope people will come away with after reading your book, A New Dawn Awaits?

E.Dee: Sometimes when I was writing my book I would wonder if “they” were talking directly to me and if the whole book was just one really long message for me because “they” would say things the way I needed to hear them so the point would really sink in. For example, throughout my book you will see phrases like “This is important”, “This is a key point”, or “We are repeating this to make sure you understand”.

I feel the main message is you can transform yourself and help all of humanity by doing two simple things: meditate and be aware of your thoughts. You don’t have to meditate every day – 10 minutes every few days is enough in the beginning. There are no random thoughts. Every thought you have goes into the Universal Consciousness and affects everyone else. When you become aware of your thoughts, the negative ones will automatically decrease and the positive ones will increase. You don’t have to be perfect and remove all negative thoughts – all you have to do is try to become aware and that is enough to shift your perspective.

If this sounds like too much to do, I will take a quote from my book: “If you remember nothing else in this book, remember this: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you; think of others as you would have them think of you.”
