Conduit (spiritualism)

A conduit, in esoterism, and spiritual discourse, is a specific object, person, location, or process (such as engaging in a séance or entering a trance) which allows a person to connect or communicate with a spiritual realm, metaphysical energy, or spiritual entity, or vice versa. The use of such a conduit may be entirely metaphoric or symbolic, or it may be earnestly believed to be functional.

In Shinto, the public shrine is a building or place that functions as a conduit for kami ( "spiritual essence"?, commonly translated as god or spirit). In Yoruba culture, it is said that Elegba, the son of Osun, became the great conduit of ase (divine energy) in the Universe.
