I started this thread to compare the simularities and differences between Drawing Down and channeling. I understand that there are key differences in how they are done. Also, the energy of a Deity is alot different than the energy of an entitiy. Both have their risks.Any comments, thoughts, theories and opinions are apprieciated.

I have difficulty understanding a comparison. One of them is through thought (internal) and the other uses a natural energy flow (external). I could be wrong, but this is how I understand them to work.

Can you parse the specific aspects of each procedure?  Because while one is the channeling of a god and the other the channeling of a spirit of one sort or other, they both seem to serve a similar function.

They have a simular funtion but for different purposes. When you Draw down, from my experience it is a very Sacred and ceremonial thing. Everything builds up to the moment when the Diety comes through you and the ceremony must be done as smoothly as possible. The person must also e opened to that sort of energy and have good trance, meditation, focus, clensing, grounding, and protecting techniques.

Also Drawing down is for the purpose of connection, devotion, to recieve information, and for the Diety to work through the vessel.

With channeling it is good if you know how to protect yourself and such, but basic trance meditation is all that is really required for an open channel. Good boundaries, assertiveness, and proper psychic protection make the act alot easier.

Channeling is mainly done for the purpose of communication and information.

That is how I see it I just wanted others points of view as well.

That part I understand.  It was the internal/external distinction ardnael made that confused me.
