honestly it depends on what type of channeling you are talking about. Channeling in a paranormal sense, as in a spirit, then as autisticmom said, you need to be grounded, and centered, and KNOW what you are doing...
you can read my journal entry about defining energies (part 3) that review different types of usages of energies.. (although channeling is not listed, channeling is connected to each and ever theory I talked about). If nothing else, it will give you an idea of the theories behind it, so you can research further, and know what you are channeling, the best ways to do so, and more.
