How can I tell if the in­spired po­etry I write is ac­tu­ally chan­nelled po­etry?

CHan­neLLeD anD in­sPireD po­etry are ex­tremely sim­i­lar but it is pos­si­ble to tell them apart. In­spired po­etry has words which know­ingly orig­i­nate from your mind, you are mak­ing de­ci­sions to in­clude or change words and you con­sider the over­all im­pres­sion that the poem will make upon the reader. In chan­nelled po­etry, the words of the poem orig­i­nate from Spirit, and if you’re writ­ing these down, it’s likely you’ll be sur­prised by how quickly the words flow, and how some of them might be words you didn’t even know be­fore. Some­times, with chan­nelled writ­ing you won’t re­mem­ber hear­ing the words or writ­ing them down, and you’ll think ‘I did not write that – no way’. An­other clue that you’re chan­nelling a poem is that of­ten Spirit pro­vides their name in the writ­ing.
