There is one big downside to delivering auditing over the Internet and it is probably the reason that self-appointed guardians of technology are so worked up over it.
When you audit over the Internet, you really have to know your business as an auditor, but that is not a downside..
When you audit over the Internet, you need to have superlative presence and grant beingness to your pc, but that is not a downside either.
Internet auditors are viewed with dark suspicion and are the subject of hostile gossip by those who can’t do it, but that is not a downside either!
The big downside to delivering auditing over the Internet is that you get so many preclears demanding services that you no longer have time to visit with your fellow auditors on Facebook.
You have moved out of the 20th Century office visit mentality and are servicing clients all over the world. You could run yourself into the ground delivering services, if you do not structure your practice properly.
I have been auditing about 8 hours a day recently and it does not look like it is going to let up any time soon. I sometimes start with a 7 am session and am still auditing at 9:30 at night. Right now, I still have a waiting list of people who want to start sessions.
People call me up and ask if I audit over the Internet and I say, yes I do, seven days a week.
They say, That’s great! I live in Tanzania, or Paris, or Melbourne. Do I need a meter?
I tell them I have switched to telepathic auditing where I hold the meter and they can concentrate on handling what comes up in session. The existing pcs who have switched to telepathic auditing find that the sessions run smoothly and equipment problems are no longer a problem. Most pcs are eager to step up to taking responsibility for their telepathic ability.
Many of my new pcs have never been in a church so they do not have to unlearn the trappings and ritual and false data of church auditing. We handle what come up for the pc whether it is life ruds, NOTs auditing, or Alan Walter’s Furies.
We do have a phenomenon that does not often appear in conventional auditing rooms and that is the poltergeist phenomena. When a pc has an active OT case, asking certain questions will shut down Skype or turn off the audio channel. We log on again and reestablish connection and proceed with the session but the asking of the question again will often shut down Skype. We have even had to switch to phones in order to finish the process and handle what is going on.
Telepathic auditing can be learned and most of my pcs have gotten quite good at it just through being in session. If anyone really wants to expand their reach as auditors, I would be happy to advise them or even set up sessions where they can become confident in their ability to see what is happening in a pc’s universe.
We could use at least 50 auditors who can deliver sessions over the Internet. There are that many pcs in out of the way places who want services.
I have already delivered sessions using my Kindle Fire HD 7 to a pc using a smartphone so I know that truly mobile auditing sessions are possible.
I see no barriers to advancing the state of the art because of the strong support group that exists in the Free Scientologist group on Facebook. We are taking a new look at useful technologies that have been neglected.
I was encouraged to switch to true telepathic auditing by Dexter Gelfand’s example and that is going very well with all pcs. I foresee eventually training myself to audit without a meter as suggested by Loren Spethman and providing the most advanced thetan to thetan processing possible.
If we can get more auditors successfully auditing over the internet and coordinating research results, I expect to see many more successful full-time practitioners. For a quick tutorial on the various ways to audit over Skype see:
