Emmanuel

Emmanuel, an entity who speaks through channel Pat Rode-gast, emerged in the early 1980s as a being of golden light. Once he was comfortable with Emmanuel's presence, Rodegast worked with Emmanuel regularly, and some of the material from the channeling sessions were published in 1985 as Emmanuel's Book: A Manual for Living Comfortably in the Cosmos.

Emmanuel emphasizes a message of humans coming into a new relationship with God as co-creators. Separation from God had served a purpose and was now coming to an end. The clarity and simplicity with which Emmanuel spoke attracted popular New Age teacher Baba Ram Dass (Richard Alpert ), who backed Rodegast in her channeling activity and wrote the introduction to Emmanuel's Book. He was convinced of Emmanuel's reality because of the perceived differences between Rodegast and her channeled entity.
