This is perhaps a different form of channelling than I've heard of before.
With you "watching" and having the option to censor what is said, there's
some degree of control over the process. Are you sure that this being is
external to you, and not a complex in your own psyche that perhaps has
access to psychical senses that you are otherwise unconscious of?
(The analogy of a horse is useful, but limited, and should not be carried
too far. In your case, the analogy of a talk-show commentator is much better.)

The distinction that I would come back to is that with channelling it's
someone (or something) else speaking through you. That is different than
enhancing your own ability to know things directly, and speaking from your
own enhanced understanding.

Again, there's the sense of communicating with someone or something else
outside. In one sense, the Higher Self is not a separate being that talks
to us, but rather that it is us, when we function on an higher plane of
existence. In another sense, it is what we will become, when we've raised
our human selves to the consciousness appropriate to its plane. With
either way of looking at we, we've still got the task before us of taking
on its higher qualities, of making those qualities a part of ourselves.
This is different that entering into communication with it, different
than treating it as a different being than ourselves.
