I've seen a few posts lately that conclude Darryl Anka is faking the Bashar thing.
I'm very surprised. I've listened to perhaps 40-50 sessions and I can conclude either he's 100% real or I've lost all my reasoning capabilities.
What do you think of Seth, Abraham and the rest?
Just one thing about Bashar: if Darryl Anka wanted to make money, he, for sure, would have found 100 ways to do more money with less effort, for the Bashar personality is way too quick and witty, which means he's very smart, at least.
And please share the reasons why you think he's fake/real.
I do wonder if those people who make accusations of fakery have ever done any public speaking.
From my own experiences, it's difficult enough to stand in front of reasonably-sized audiences with pre-prepared presentations.
But now to stand in front of them for hour after hour, week after week, year after year, and improvise quality answer after quality answer...well, it just seems completely absurd to me that such a thing could be faked.
Remember that this is not just about talking aimlessly about random subjects but about giving answers that make sense to people who are asking questions on-the-spot. And those answers also need to make sense to everyone else in the audience and you need to do all of this fluently without endlessly repeating the same words and phrases and litter them with ad-hoc jokes and analogies.
And then you also have to deal with people like myself (and others) poring meticulously over recordings of each session afterwards looking for inconsistencies in what you are saying :)
Here's my simple challenge...
...if anyone thinks that these public Q&A sessions are faked, just record yourself talking non-stop with a webcam for an hour (about whatever subjects you want, even alone in the privacy and calm of your own home) and then upload it to IQ for our amusement...because I can promise you that it will be amusing :)

The entity known as Bashar could very well be fake, he could also be very real, but in the end, does it really matter anyway? It doesn't matter one lick to me.
I went back and forth with uncertainty regarding the validity of channeled information for the first few years when I started listening to different entities/consciousnesses.
I still had the conditioning of the world and people around me whispering silently in my ear that this was bad and so far out there and could never in a million years be true, that it was so hard for me to just feel one way or another after listening or watching a video.
I would feel great and hopeful after absorbing the information, but then I would endlessly question if it was true or if I was being tricked by a human or an alien intelligence a whole lot smarter than me.
Today, in the here and now, I really don't even think about the possibility of doubt when it comes to channeled information that I enjoy listening to. I don't even care if Bashar is not really an ET. All I care about is the information and how it does or doesn't affect my life.
I do think that the ET known as Bashar is a real living and breathing humanoid being but at the same time, if Darryl Anka is a complete and utter con-man and this whole thing is just a big sham, I still love his work and would thank him for sharing it.
I have gained so much knowledge and understanding from him/Bashar, and I really do not give crap what's fake, real, alien, human, robotic, or someone that may be considered psychotic. I have used the information and know that it works in my life and that is all the proof that I need.
We human beings can go back and forth all day everyday about who is right and who is wrong and who does and doesn't have it all figured out. The only thing that matters in life is our vibratory state of being. Everything else that we perceive as being "out there" is everyone else's business.
Don't be surprised. There are many many different opinions and viewpoints on this planet and it wouldn't really be all that fun anyway if we all agreed on the same things. If you feel that he is 100% real then follow your gut instincts (or in other words vibrational attraction) and let everyone else have their own experience. Maybe next week you will find enough evidence for yourself that he is 100% fake and that is fine too.
It really is all about how you feel. Listen to the information and just ask yourself during, or after, how does this make me feel? Usually that answer or thought you get will lead you in the direction that (you as an individual) prefer to go in.
As I mentioned above, I believe that Bashar the alien is completely real in every way. I never in my life saw such valuable information come so quickly, so detailed, and yet so easily to understand. Plus, I just get to decide that he really is an ET sitting in a spaceship (at whatever distance he prefers:) because that is the reality I decide to vibrate in:)
If Darryl is putting on a show, I commend him because he does a kick ass job of sharing excellent and usable information.
Remember, everyone and everything you perceive as being "outside of you" is in your own unique consciousness. You get to decide what you focus on, which then leads to the version of the people and the events that you experience. Decide right now which version of Darryl Anka/Bashar that you most prefer to experience and let everyone else have their own preferred experience as well.

This channeled stuff is pretty new to me. But I've been into self improvement (products) for more than a decade. And I tried many things that so called "gurus" suggested to improve one's life.
I spent hours and hours testing many ideas in my own life. Some of them did work. Most of them didn't. I was also a huge Anthony Robbins fan. And one important thing I learned from him is that it doesn't matter what you learn to improve your life...as long as it brings tangible results.
This message was huge for me at first. I realized that I spent a lot of time learning things that I don't need at all. Almost at the same I was studying philosophy at university. I dropped it immediately because I realized that all that philosophy I studied was bullshit. What kind of tangible results could I get from it? Though I find it still interesting at times, I think studying abstract theories is a waste of time from a self improvement point of view (if you can't transform them into practical tools that bring tangible results).
And because I believe in my own tangible results only, it doesn't really matter to me what Bashar is or why Esther Hicks is so fat and gives weight loss seminars... or why Jerry Hicks died from cancer going through useless chemotherapy... or why Darrly Anka and Esther Hicks have a scarcity mindset and adhere to copyright laws.
The only thing I know is that

Ok here goes.
I think Bashar is a figment of Darryls very fertile imagination. Why? because i believe EVERYTHING is a product of imagination anyway.
I believe that Bashar comes from Darryls consciousness and is NOT a seperate entity at all. Bashar can only say or do or know what Darryl does.
If he were seperate he could listen and speak thru Darryl in every language on this planet....he cant do this...because Darryl cant do this. Now some would argue that Bashar could lets say pick a Swedish person to channel him and do it this way. But why not just use Darryl?
If Bashar were a seperate entity "using" Darrlys body, then he could speak any language thru him. Some would say that he is using Darryls consciousness and Darryls consciousness can only speak the same languages that Darryl can. I would argue that if he is speaking " from" Darryls consciousness then he "is" Darryl.
I simply dont believe, right down in the core of my being that Bashar is a seperate distinct entity.
Now having said that what do i believe about Darryl?
I think he has wisdom above and beyond many of his peers, hes energetic, charismatic,funny,charming, loveable and talented. He has a deep understanding of spiritual matters and has a gift of communicating this to an audience.
I believe he is an extension of Source or God and contains within him all the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form.
Darryl is a more full, exciting, interesting, fascinating , knowledgeable, funny, Godlike and unique than any made up extra terrestrial could ever be.
He is infinitely more of everything than Bashar could ever be.
And frankly heres the important bit.
If what he shares and teaches makes your existence in this reality just a little bit better,fuller and more enjoyable...then who gives a toss if hes called Bashar or Darryl....
Darryls no fake, "hes" the real deal.
People can limit themselves when they label someone or something. They label it, think they know it and then tend not to look any deeper and see the gifts there.
My advice would be to always look beyond the source and see if the information resonates with you. Taking this approach to anything in life will serve you.

It doesn't matter if he is "fake". Even if "Bashar" is fake, "Darryl" the physical guy speaking the words sure is real, so if you like the words he speak - continue to listen - if not, don't.
I hope the confusion/questions leave your mind and you realize the clarity/perfection already within you.

I don't think that Bashar is fake. Getting to know Rob awhile back on Skype and in chats and listening to him on Youtube you realize that Rob and Treb are not one in the same. Think of a channeler as a Windows 98 computer, and the channeled entity as a program written for Windows 95 to Windows 8. It does as much as it can with the hardware provided, using the language that is installed on the machine. The capacity of the program exceeds the capacity of the hardware but gets the message out nonetheless. Treb had an explanation about this in one of videos.Maybe Rob could link it.?

There's a funny phenomenon that I've noticed with Bashar...if you listen to only 5 minutes of his material, it seems like he must be a fraud. But if you listen to 50 hours of his material, then it seems that he must be authentic. At least that's been my experience.
The best evidence I have yet come across that he is "for real" is from the following question-and-answer session. To listen to the clip, load the following audio segment, and go about 42 minutes in, to the conversation between Bashar and the older gentleman named "Strawberry", in which Bashar begins sending him "telepathic jolts" of instant information:
Now, about the authenticity of the above clip. Although I am not an actor, my line of work has brought me the opportunity to train with and intimately observe some true masters of acting and improvisation. I am familiar with the various schools of acting and how the actor's mind works. I know the various approaches, techniques, and tricks of the trade.
To give you an example, true laughter is almost impossible to fake. A trained ear/eye/mind can always discern the difference between "acted" and genuine laughter...even if that "acted laughter" is coming from an expert method actor. Thus to elicit true laughter, filmmakers often have to set up a situation where the actor is completely surprised by something unplanned...then that shot is taken out of context and "implanted" into the scene to give the illusion that the actor was laughing at something actually planned in the scene. An example of "true" laughter would be Jodi Foster in the diner scene in Taxi Driver, laughing at DeNiro's "little piece of chicken" comment. Or Tommy's mother laughing during the kitchen scene in Goodfellas (right before Pesci kisses her on the cheek). When you see "real" laughter in a film, it really stands out.
That said, having listed to the above Bashar clip many times, it is my personal judgment and conclusion that the exchange is, for lack of a better term, "authentic." Meaning not planned, and not acted.
And if Bashar/Darryl Anka does really have the power to send "blocks" of information to another person instantaneously, then it begs the question, why would he lie about the other stuff?
Also, it means that if Bashar is a fake, then the challenges relating to speaking and performance which Stingray has already pointed out, would have to apply to members of Bashar's audience as well. Which means there would have to be a minor conspiracy at work.
At the end of the day, what is more or less likely?
Food for thought.
(By the way, @Notgonnatellyou, although I couldn't un-delete my old question, this info was taken from it).
I would say he is not faking. As I channel Treb there is so many variables that are in effect. 1st and most is just like Ursixx said It is a hard deal for the entity to express themselves through our dumb brains lol. Secondly, there is also our own vibrations at time of connection which can affect the way the message comes through. When I am in rough mood or bad vibration, it takes a lot longer to neutralize, and if I am feeling rushed or short on time, and connect despite the full vibrational setting as it should be, this can affect the connection process. SO it is hard for others to see this when they do not experience it, so I would really not be able to express proof either way, all I can say, is use ur heart to guide you. If you feel he is fake, does this take away the validity of what he is saying? THIS, and this alone is the TRUE question u must ask urself.
Hope it helped. Love n light,
Who cares if Basher is real or fake?? Not sure what those terms mean anyhow. If what you get from him, or Seth or Abraham or a leaf floating down a stream affects you in a positive way; if it makes you feel good, use it. If it does not, find something, someone else who does make you feel good and follow them.
the bottom line is if it makes you feel good it comes from Source.

Listen to lots of different channellers and then come back to Bashar and see if it resonates with you in the same way. If so, great - you've used your discernment and come to your own conclusions.
If I feel uncertain about channelling (and it varies quite a bit in tone and quality) I check out how it makes me feel and then I might dowse on it, using a simple quartz pendulum.
A channeller can appeal to you for a while and then you might move away from them. Does this mean that the channeller is a "fake" or being manipulated by undesirable entities ... possibly, possibly not. You're right to be vigilant though - as above, so below .... you wouldn't trust everyone you came across on the street so apply the same caution to non physical entities.
Is Bashar real or fake? Do you find joy and resonance in what this hive mind collective entity relays? Or do you find joy and resonance in what debunkers of Darryl Anka and Bashar relay? Or, perhaps, do you find enjoyment in using your discernment to explore both expressions to find a vibrational frequency that is more expansive and open-ended with your own Ever-Unfolding NOW resonance?
The idea of 'real' or 'fake' is subjective and illusory, as anything brought into creativity by the conscious mind - collectively or individually - is a manifestational 'reality' for those who match the vibrational frequency of such resonance, and subsequently behave as though such a 'reality' is true. For example - those who believed the Earth was flat manifested the 'reality' that the world was flat, simply because they behaved as though the world was flat. Like-wise the same can be said of those who have 'bought into' the idea that the world is a sphere, and subsequently behave as though it is. Belief manifests behaviour of that belief, and behaviour manifests one's 'reality'. On the same token, when one genuinely believes in the existence of Bashar as a higher dimensional entity one moves to a frequency that is more in tune with this belief system, giving the belief a higher probability to manifest in one's 'reality'.
In my understanding and experience, Bashar's perspectives and wisdom resonate highly with me - far more than any other 'channelled entity'. However, I am very cognisant that Bashar is withholding information (as it has often indicated), and is such, not a sovereign being - not a being of Free Will. The relay of Bashar's information through its channel is limited and dictated via a Collective Hive Mind Prime Directive and Agreement. It is important to note, as well, that such information relayed is also filtered and interpreted through the channeller's own consciousness, sub consciousness, beliefs, perspective, personality, etc.
Is Bashar an archon, an aeon, a daemon (basically an astral entity attached to a hive mind consciousness or A.I.) or an alternate time line linear 'future' probability coordinate species representative of what some of us in the ever-unfolding NOW moment have shifted to vibrationally-wise? I say yes to all.
I accept that anything is possible, if for no other reason than I do not want in my reality a reality where everything is not possible. As Bashar stated, we are a 'nation of mages'; and indeed we are! And as we are such, we must be very discerning what we choose to 'buy into', Bashar included, for the Astrals are also capable of manifesting much illusion and manipulation, and often do so through via our minds and our powers of imagination and manifestation, via coercion.
For my own part, I have found that tuning in to a certain frequency can be both beneficial and detrimental, if one does not dissect and discern the nature (or vibration) of that frequency in relation to the Bigger Picture. It is for this very reason that I do not remain static in any one frequency. There is much to be learned by tuning into all the frequencies out there. Change the frequency and one changes one's perspective. And perspective is really what 'reality' is all about in this Computation Matrix.
I used to follow certain channelled information but no longer follow any. I considered what was said by these entities through contemplation and by using and always fine-tuning my discernment. Some of the information relayed has been helpful to me, some of it I have found greatly deceiving.
Do I think Darryl Anka is faking channelling this entity? No. Do I think Bashar is what he says he is? No.
its a great question which i definitely don't have real answer. I can only use logic to think he is NOT a fake and is real. Just because the message is true. in his case i listened quite a few hours and everything seems congruous to me. And since there are people who claim to have seen UFOs etc who knows.
interestingly it brought out another topic in me. SCientists say Earth is moving at 300,000 km /hr and rotating at 3000 km/hr. And while i dont doubt them, frankly i dont see it at all. If all the scientists turn around and say Earth is actually stationary and explain some scientific jargon that made them calculate like its moving, i think we would all believe that. So there are so many things we dont know and its almost we can only believe some things that ring true to us at this point in time.

I believe that Bashar is a fake. He is well read in quantum theory and other sciences. He is a great public speaker and is knowledgeable about the laws of attraction. He is a brilliant entertainer, funny and to the point. These are his beliefs about how the universe works, based on his understanding of physics etc. I think its hilarious how gullible people are, but at the same time, his ideas are of interest to me and a little sci-fi (ish) but fun to listen to. But I believe he gets his material from both physics and philosophy and spiritual concepts. Like his idea on over souls, was coined by Emerson in 1841.
At the end of the day Physical theories are nothing more than succinct mathematical approximations of reality. These approximations are in turn limited by the theory's basic Assumptions (which may be stated or unstated). Unfortunately, these limiting, fundamental assumptions upon which much of physics depends are not always inclusive of the diversity of physical reality. Assumptions are clearly a fundamental aspect of what physicists like to call "The Laws of Physics", but all too often the assumptions are not stated explicitly with the law. This omission often results in a misinterpretation of the law, or a faulty assumption as to the applicability of the law in certain cases. The Laws of Thermodynamics are a noteworthy case in point, as are the Assumptions of Classical Mechanics.

Mediumship is real. It would helpful for people to understand the mechanics of the process. What is it and how it works. I knew a medium in Arizona who told me that whenever he heard the word "channeling" he thought of sewage canals. People should not be so gullible and take someones word that they are genuinely channeling information from an external source. There is a fine line between a genuine psychic impression and the imagination. I have encountered many sincere people who are completely deluded. And there are many like Bashar who are completely phony. With any level of spirit control the medium's mind is involved. Most automatic speaking involves a lighter level of trance with the medium's consciousness involved in the process. It could be 80% the medium and 20% the communicating personality. The less of the medium and the more of the spirit communicator the better but the medium's mind is still involved. Always test the medium and test the spirit world. Fake accents and silly antics have nothing to do with communication with the spirit world.

I've watched a ton of Bashar on youtube. All I can say is that He doesn't give harmful advice, he's not a cult leader, He doesn't demand people to believe anything he says. He seems to give good answers straight away without hesitation. He doesn't demand money. I don't know why it's so important to some people to prove this guy is fake.
I don't know if Bashar is real, but I believe Darryl is not faking his own experience. It could be something different in reality, like a "hidden part of his mind" or something, I think even Darryl has said that in an interview.
And yeah, an alien speaking through a man, giving spiritual advice. Sounds pretty weird, but then again the world is a pretty strange place. Maybe some day we'll all know for sure.

Do you think Bashar is a fake? Definition of fake in The Free Dictionary,
So do "I think" Bashar is a fake? ... it depends which way I look at it :)
Here's a metaphor; looking at the photo of the constellation casseopeia taken by the space telescope hubble I see a beautiful constellation of stars
Now I swivel it 180° so that it's upside down, in other words I look at it from a different angle
Observing carefully I can see the appearance of a skull like image ... is the image a "fake"? well no it can't be, it was taken by the very serious space telescope hubble.
Can I perceive a skull like image? well yes I can ... is this a photo of a giant extra-terrestrial? maybe ... now I wonder hmmm is this constellation a strong energy relay? you bet it is!
Now applying this metaphor to Bashar I feel his performances hypnotic ( definition of hypnotic in my trusty dictionary; inducing or tending to induce sleep) ... hmm
Bashar; fake? extra-terrestrial? a human relay for information coming from elsewhere? It certainly feels like it to me.
What really counts is what his teaching bring to me, fake or not? why is the sky blue? who cares, it's just all so beautiful :)
My unbiased opinion. All the key answers (key to prove his authenticity) that Bashar gave are unverifiable. Kind of sentences like "After (final) death is ..." or "When we approach speed of light ...", no man was there. If someone really understands something more than we (he should as such high being), why shouldn't he tell us something, at least one thing we could verify and is absolutely new for mankind.
Test him I developed this simple test: If he connects to Darryl using telepathy, then there on the Earth should be at least one other person to who he can connect too. So let both write the same sentence on the paper so we can compare it and then repeat this test 20 times.
Radical relativism of Protagoras (not related to Bashar himself) I read here some comment as "everyones reality is real", I think that meaning is the same as "everything what someone thinks is true" (radical relativism) however then this sentence should be true but also should be true it's negation if someone else thinks the opposite. So the radical relativism is inconsistent.
Darryl probably constructed Bashar, I think he is a philosopher and his intention is to help people (Startrek also contains good thoughts), his advices are helpful. Nowadays almost no one reads philosophical texts. For basic people, you must construct something supernatural, to make them listen to you.

Bashar character is a totally made up crap. The teachings all come from Darryl Anka, with all his Hollywood movie experience and effects for Sci fi movies its no wonder he claims to have seen alien spaceships, that's what he's in to. He's just studied Buddhism and is teaching all the usuall earth logic based new age teachings. The problem I have is he is fraudulently claiming to be in contact with a dead (yes) alien who died in 2013 according to Anka, Bashar race live for 300 of their years, only 30 earth years, yet he's been channeling Bashar(a middle eastern name) G big surprise there, for about 40 years. Also he made a whole lot of worthless predictions that never came true...again big surprise. It all is exactly how you expect a fraude and Charleston to act. If he was just honest about his teachings it would be fine, but all this cookie voice nonsense and big fees to hear him pretend to be Bashar chaneling is absurd bull. He gets a lot of money for it and of course he enjoys doing it. Two huge reasons why he won't stop. Nobody has the brains to actually research this guy or to study Buddhism themselves so are obviously fooled. I don't mean in a bad way, I mean taken in by him, but yes in reality fooled. "Ooooh I am Bashaaaarrrr" LOL. For me the guys a fuxing joke. You are taken in by him the same way a primitive tribesmen would be if Ihe lit a piece of wood with a lighter. You'd think he was doing magic.
