What it's like in my mind when I channel...
It's not exactly like a trance, because I am conscious while it is happening. It's a slight shift in focus in the conscious, where I direct my attention to the question I am posing, allowing Spirit to answer through my body vocally, or with a pen in hand, on paper. Then it flows automatically, like a kinetic kind of reaction, it feels rather robotic. When it first began many years ago, it was so eerie I nearly panicked, yet due to my fascination with the spiritual, it didn't frighten me for long. It has taken years of refinement to get far with it, and I am still growing, but it is like another means of seeing, only that I see with an unconscious means of perceiving. I can do it at will at any point, in any place, but some tools help it to ground and/or be more clear. The channel is not from some discarnate entity, it is of the Spirit of the Creator.
When I read the Akashic Records, I simply focus on the question, I wait to see what the records have to say to me, and the Spirit relays it to me through channel. It's hilarious what kinds of things I can discover, it's rather like having a metaphysical Google search engine built into me. One time, just the other day after writing my Jungian analysis article, I asked what Dr. Jung would have thought of me - the answer included that he would have observed that I have a tendency to present as unsophisticated, to play with people who think that they are more sophisticated, so that they realize that I am indeed quite sophisticated, to make them think twice about what sophistication actually is. I laughed, not realizing until then that I unconsciously do have a tendency to do that. So, I can read events - past, present, and future... but also hypothetic outcomes. Again, this is something I keep trying to refine with work, so I don't claim mastery of this, only that it is shaping up to be this with practice.
I can also kind of multitask while doing this, but it will hurt the quality of the channel a bit when I do so. Often, at work, I channel under my breath to develop it ... work shifts are an excellent time for contemplation, as well. So, the simple answer is: the mind is still in a similar enough state to the everyday, it's just that my concentration has shifted to focus on the skill of channel, rather like how it would shift from one kind of state when doing something like a piece of art, to the kind of concentration I would require for mathematics. It's simply another way of thinking.
