The energy we are feeling now is much more personal than it used to be. Perhaps it’s because for many of us we’re being confronted with deeper issues since we’ve been on our spiritual path for a longer time. Some are just beginning, but many of us have been doing this for a long time and we laugh at some lessons we’ve mastered, while other energies bring up very old issues to be dealt with. Before, people would gather in groups and discuss spiritual things happening in their lives, now, it seems we have a variety of ways to communicate but people are not sharing experiences like they used to and are not having real conversations. We’re all still feeling energy changes and shifts and some share in groups, but more people are going within to try and understand them rather than discussing them openly. I think we need to do both; share together, helping one another through tougher times, and also go within when we need to be quieter and listen to our higher selves. To receive guidance, we must be in a place to be able to feel, hear and sense it and not always listen to what everyone else is saying.

On social networks, people keep sharing and sharing, but how much of what is being shared is relevant or important to anything that’s going on in the world right now? Some is, of course, but much is just rubbish to try and keep our minds constantly in motion so we’re not able to concentrate or have peace of mind.  I remember a time when we didn’t have cell phones, when someone was going somewhere, they had to wait until they arrived at their destination before calling and letting others know where they were, what they were doing and when they would be home etc. Now it seems, people want others to know, or others want to know where people are almost every minute of the day! That’s a stretch, but what I’m saying is, why do I need to talk to someone on the cell while their shopping, driving, walking, reading, going to the bathroom or coming up the driveway? Why is it necessary to “talk” that much and is anything really being shared? Is it so important for people to have a way to communicate but not really connect? Connecting and communicating on a deeper, spiritual level is more important, but can only be achieved once we stop some of the mindless chatter and chaotic energy that’s all around us!

We all need to rely more on our hearts and not so much our technical mind and technology. There are people out there, right now, that would not know how to survive without technology, and that’s a shame. I choose to have a computer and I limit what I do with my cell phone, I don’t like using microwaves very much anymore and I love having a woodstove in my home for the winter. I believe in the old ways and new age too. I use them both together. I like having a garden and growing some of our food. It’s nice, organic and I know where the food came from and that it’s not harmful. I still write notes, make out lists and keep paper files for some things. Systems can fail, computers can lose data, and I still like reading a good old fashion book now and then. We humans, can lose data too; but it seems we’re relying on other methods to keep our memories and ways of remembering, while some share too much information and wonder why they seem to be losing control.

Since I’ve begun speaking out about communication more recently in the last few months, more of my “old friends” online have been surfacing and reconnecting, and it feels good. Some have told me how they miss the way it used to be and how we connected on a deeper level than we do now, just sharing snippets of our lives. It seems people used to take more time, take things slower and get to know one another. If we, as a society keep going the way we are, one day we may wonder why we feel so distant from one another or feel like people don’t really know us. Yet, there are deeper ways to communicate, spiritually, when we’re ready. Some feel the internet is taking too much of their freedom, but as we become dependent on technology why would it be a shock that nothing seems private any longer. We have choices and we can choose to limit what we share and how we share it. I choose to share positive, good things online and do my best to keep the energy flowing in a good direction. 

As we progress with technology, we need to find a balance and what works best for us, but we also need to be mindful of everything around us. Are technical gadgets taking our attention away from doing things in other ways? Is our society getting lazy and what examples are we setting for our future generations? We may not be able to stop the way things advance in the future, but we are here now and we can remember and teach other ways too, so they are not forgotten. Computers, phones, electrical devices and other wonderful inventions help us every day and they have brought many of us together. Balance is the key for the old ways and new age and learning to have some of both is a good thing.  

Blessings and balance.~
