To behold Paul Selig channel spirits is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
And I’ve seen a lot of unusual things.
His method of conveying the wisdom from the non-physical teachers (whom I’ve come to understand is/are Melchizedek) looks something like a possession. With a wireless microphone, he speaks very quickly in a grumbly voice that’s hard to understand, then repeats the words more clearly in is own normal voice.
“I know who you are in truth.”
“I KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN TRUTH.”
“The small self thinks.”
“THE SMALL SELF THINKS,”
“And the true self knows.”
“AND THE TRUE SELF KNOWS.”
Paul conveys these teaching for sometimes 20 minutes without stoping in a deluge of spiritual wisdom. Sitting up on the stage with table beside him with one little candle lit, Paul explains to the audience that he is only a conduit.
His role is to listen to the wisdom of a non-physical entity or entities and relay it through his mouth with his eyes closed. He explains that he is/continues to be fairly reluctant as a spiritual figure. But, as I’ve come to understand and know a number of channels, mediums and spiritual teachers, it’s clear of his gifts are undeniable - so they may as well embrace it.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU CARE, OR PAY ANY ATTENTION TO A FIGURE LIKE THIS?
We live in a time where connection to the divine has been objectified especially in Western culture. We are so distracted by ads, entertainment, deadlines and money pressures that we don’t make a time to open up our crown chakra is to receive deep wisdom. Sure, some of us go to church, pray or meditate, but there is an inherent value in paying attention to a more raw and unadulterated message like the one Paul is sharing.
My experience at the workshop with 60 other people was one of intention and presence with other people who are also curious about spiritual teachings. Even if you’re a daily meditator or a regular floater or a disciplined Yogi, there is still so much to understand about the non-physical world.
Consciousness for most of us, is not something we pay much attention to. And yet, it is at the heart of our reality. We cannot avoid our consciousness. It is the filter for everything physical and non-physical in our lives. It is also the filter for all things spiritual in our lives. Bu yet, we don’t think about it much.
It is the portal to all of the pleasures of our lives. It is also the portal to darkness and fear. So, there’s work to do in conditioning it. How we think of our selves in a massive inroad to understand our consciousness and our orientation in the world.
One of the key takeaways from the workshop was the distinction between the small self and the divine self. We can think of the small self as our ego. Who we have constructed ourselves to be. Our small self has been shaped by culture, our parents, certain events in our life that have informed who we think we are from the outside in. Our small self is a reflection of the external.
The divine self on the other hand is from the inside out. It is our true essence that is unavoidable. Our divine self/highest self/spiritual self is inherently connected with source. We all came from somewhere, and we will all return somewhere. And even thinking about that for a moment allows us to understand our true nature.
Think for a moment about the line - “The small self thinks and the true self knows.”
There are actions we can take in order to connect more deeply with our divine selves. I urge all of us to find ways to connect more deeply from the inside out. This is not New Age mumbo-jumbo, this is a concerted effort to understand ourselves at a deeper level, so that we may improve our quality of life and prepare ourselves for our inevitable death. Then rebirth. Then death again, and so on.
