From a channeling with Gabriel, Archangel of Light:
There are several differences between possession and channeling, the first and foremost being that the consciousness of the form is willing to release control to channel the message. In possession, it is not willing.
In channeling, the one being channeled is generally one of light, though some neutral beings do exist that communicate from time to time with the human race. These are not to be feared, but one must be ever cautious because for them there is always a price to be met for their services.
In channeling, because the human form is willing, there is nothing left behind once the exercise is complete. During a consensual channeling the experience for the conscious self is positive…unlike possession where residue abides in piles and the feeling is akin to being raped and dragged through the muck.
In channeling, the conscious self is present because I use the human filters to communicate. In possession the consciousness is subdued and the possession takes place, many times, during the period of time when the form is in the sleep pattern, thus easily accessible and manipulated.
In channeling, if necessary, the conscious self can return at any time, where possession does not relinquish the form back easily, and not necessarily completely.
In channeling, depending upon the channel, the human form can be shared by many light beings…in possession while there will be many detrimentals that are within the auric layers, the physical form can only be held by one at a time.
In channeling the conscious self can share the space equally without losing anything of itself in the process.
In channeling, the experience brings one closer to god, to the I AM, while possession is opposite.
