What is the difference between hearing voices and channeling?

Does anyone know the difference? I don’t know if you are into that culture, but it seems similar. Except of course, hearing voices seems to cause more suffering.

But would it be healthier and lead to a happier outlook if we thought of it that way? What do you think?

The label and the culture that uses the terms.

That makes sense. So if my voices had messages for people I could be a channeler.

Maybe if you just heard voices and had no other schizophrenic symptoms, then perhaps it would be similar to channeling by a medium. I think mediums also are in control of the experience, they can choose when to channel ‘spirits’ and when not to. I dunno, but in my view there’s a big difference between a schizophrenic hearing voices and a medium supposedly channeling spirits (we only have their word on it.)
