The other night, I met with someone who is both a student and a friend, and who happens to teach online classes in clairvoyance. She practically begged me to begin teaching my controlled remote viewing classes online.
She had me convinced: If I don't want to fall behind the curve, I need to teach basic CRV online. So many people are unable to travel due to limited resources or work conflicts, yet they want to learn to remote view!
However, as I began to talk to some of my students, I realized that a lot of the quality of the Basic class would be lost in an online basic class. When I teach Basic CRV, a strong foundation is built. This foundation is crucial to the success of the viewer as he or she continues his or her career as a remote viewer.
The students I polled talked to me about how much they've loved my classes. They said they feel a sense of excellence in everything I do. They told me about other classes they've attended online which seriously lacked the quality they had hoped for.
They mentioned how, in working with me face to face, I was able to catch the many nuances of their body language, mistakes in their written structure, and many times even fears they faced as they worked. Many of these important nuances would be lost to me while working with students online. Yet, if I don't create an online class, could I be left behind in the surge of instructors that have suddenly appeared on the horizon?
I have not been the greatest at tooting my own horn or climbing a tree to holler. My passion has always been teaching, and admittedly, I dislike using my time to constantly post something on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
But I love teaching face-to-face! I like to see my students’ reactions.
Students often display what we refer to as “micro movements” while remote viewing. Like a “tell” in poker, micro movements reveal what is happening in the viewer’s subconscious mind. This becomes especially helpful when the monitor doesn't know what the target is.
For example, let's say you and your partner are working on a missing child case. Neither of you knows where the missing child is. The police need a good description of the child's current location. If you happen to know that every time your partner is “on target,” he scratches his nose, then you know the information on page 6 is good information because he happened to be on page 6 when he gave you his telltale sign – the scratch of the nose! If he happens to always lick his lips whenever he is off target – well, that is as important as knowing when he is on target.
This information is important to teach to every class and it is often spontaneously demonstrated while the class is taking place. Students get to work with each other in teams as instructors walk from team to team assisting.
Online, none of this is possible.
I do believe however, that it would be possible to teach intermediate, advanced, and perhaps even CRV medical applications online. It's just the Basic that I feel is so crucial to teach face-to-face.
But then, it might be better to have a well-thought-out Basic class taught online than no instruction at all. And for some people, online classes might be their only option.
