Beginning clairaudience, being like a radio, and taking care of oneself

Selig describes how he started his journey in 1987 a year out of a Masters program at Yale, while working on an opera. How Gideons leave books in a drawer and he reached for a book, beginning a journey out of necessity, hearing a voice telling him to “get his act together”, and his beginning of a clairaudience. How Selig was an open conduit, and how he operated like a radio when he channels he flips the station a bit then has access to other info. When in 2009, after working with a group in his apartment, he began recording and transcribing what the guides delivered as books, with six so far, and how the books are transcripts of sessions and require virtually no editing. Taking care of oneself, and balance. The demands of travel and work, how he is missing the order, schedule, and community and finding the audience more transient. How his current pace and lifestyle is not sustainable, the guides are not tired when he’s tired, how he takes on the physical abilities and issues of those he channels, and how most have a lack of awareness of divinity in so many things, despite that all is holy. His hope is that if teaching continues it will result in a realization for all that can move the process forward.
