Technology and Communication

For many of us the use of technology as a key vehicle of communication has become an essential part of everyday life.

Communication is what my work as a spiritual teacher and channel is all about, and the ability to use my computer and the internet, including social media, to connect with clients whom I may have known for years and people quite unknown to me all over the world is important. Additionally and to my surprise I have discovered that I love the technological medium now that I know, a little bit, how to use it.

On Monday, on doing a routine disk check of my highly esteemed year-old Apple Mac  I saw a red warning message that the Hard Disk was failing and must be replaced at once, something  no computer user  wants to see particularly with the knowledge that the warranty had expired two days earlier, and that to be without it would affect my work and inconvenience my clients perhaps considerably. After a number of calls and a site visit from Tom the machine is away for repair, hopefully back tomorrow and with the contents restored.

If this had happened two years ago there would have been nothing I could have done to continue a relatively normal pattern of work, but because I have an i-phone which in itself is like a computer the only thing I cannot do is record consultations for clients who like the facility – and I have ideas on how I can do even that without a computer if it breaks down again, using another gadget to be acquired shortly. Indeed, I can envisage a future when all computers are small, hand-held and portable everywhere and the fixed desktop PC does not exist – and it may not be far off, just as all paper-based  books may one day be replaced by e-books except those with rarity value.

However, I can foresee a future also where technology of this nature does not exist at all because the internet is broken, and for a long time, because of extreme disruption to power sources caused by planetary change. The events of this week, for me, have caused me to remember this and to consider not just how I can continue to make recordings but how I continue to communicate. It can be done and will be done and the opportunities are showing themselves already.

When I run a large spiritual development workshop this October one of the participants will be physically located in another country, and she will not be using Skype or video-conferencing in order to participate, but telepathy. She has paid her fee and in all respects will be like the other students, listening, doing the work and contributing, and I know it will work. It is the way of the future, a new but also very old and well-tried vehicle of communication, a back-up system that is fail-safe and guided, always, by Spirit.
