How to Remote View
Remote viewing is defined as the ability to acquire accurate information about a distant or non-local place, person or event without using your physical senses or any other obvious means. It’s associated with the idea of clairvoyance and sometimes called “anomalous cognition” or “second sight.” The difference between natural psychic receptivity and remote viewing is that the latter is a trained skill that the average person can learn to do.
Assignment: Increase Your Sensitivity to Unconscious Information
About 80% of the sensory information you experience each moment is generated by your brain. To save energy and time, your mind makes its best guess about what’s going on around you, using a small sampling of the environment. When you practice remote viewing, you’re attempting to describe very subtle information that is much weaker than your conscious perception. Your assignment is to increase your sensitivity to subtle information and learn how to collect unconscious information before your conscious mind interferes.
Spend time each day considering the sensory information in your immediate environment. Notice your surroundings, including the range of colors, sounds and smells. Take a second look: more presence in the moment increases your sensitivity to subtle information.
Try Your Eyes at Remote Viewing
1. Select a range of targets
Ask a friend or family member (aka remote viewing assistant) to select 5-10 pictures. Ask them to cut the images from magazines and paste them on sheets of blank, white paper, with one picture per sheet. The images should be real-world pictures, such as people, architecture, nature, etc. Ask them not to pick a target picture that may be offensive or disturbing to the viewer.
2. Ask your assistant to put the images in an envelope
Ask your remote viewing assistant to stack the images in a manilla envelope face down and say absolutely nothing about them to you. You’ll view them one at a time, getting feedback after each session from the facedown target at the top of the pile.
3. Quiet your mind
You want as little mental noise as possible.
4. Let go
Write down the date, time and any ideas you want to let go of that may distract you while viewing.
5. Call the first target to mind
Begin the session by describing the most basic impressions you have of the first target site, event or person. What do you feel is the predominant thing in the target. Is it natural or artificial? Surrounded by land or water? Write several descriptors down.
6. Do not to second guess yourself
Write down the first thing that comes to your mind. The fainter, the better. Just make sure you write down the information as descriptively as possible and don’t judge anything.
7. Connect the dots unconsciously
Information is coming from your mind and autonomic nervous system. The idea is that your unconscious already knows everything there is to know about the target, it just has to communicate that to your conscious mind. It does that through your body with very subtle sensations and feelings.
8. Describe the basics
Write down sensory information that comes up, like visuals, smells, tastes and temperatures. You may start perceiving sizes, shapes and patterns — also known as dimensionals. You may even start to feel an emotional reaction to the target.
9. Draw a sketch of the target
Take your time and don’t worry about how your sketch looks.
10. Find a bird’s eye view
Imagine yourself floating several hundred feet over the target area. Is there anything surprising about the target that you can perceive? Make a note of your final impressions about the target.
11. End the session
Write down the time and a brief summary of what you perceived.
12. Get feedback
Pull the top photo from the envelope and see how you did. Take your time to really look at the colors and shapes of the image and compare it to your notes. You may be surprised at the results.
13. Review and repeat
If you didn’t connect with anything in the photo, don’t despair. The main point of RV is to learn about yourself, not just to be accurate. Remember that remote viewing is an ability you may cultivate. Repeat the process above for the remaining targets in the envelope.
14. Let go of being right
Most importantly, have fun.
What is Astral Projection?
Call it what you like — dream body, astral body, energy body, Buddhist light body, Taoist diamond body, Egyptian ka, Tantric subtle body, Hindu body of bliss — and in Christianity, the experience of different “heavens,” i.e. “I know a man who was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in our out of body, I do not know,” from Corinthians 12:1-4. The subtle body is a universal human experience, and apparently part of our standard human design like toenails and kidneys. It is this subtle body that projects astrally and is active during unconscious and lucid dreaming; astral projection and dreaming often go hand-in-hand as “out-of-body” experiences, or OBEs.
The subtle body, when cultivated, can survive the physical body as a matrix for consciousness, and astral projection and lucid dreaming are part of spiritual training paths for subtle body cultivation. Neophytes confuse the subtle body with the soul or spirit, two additional aspects of multi-dimensional humans.
Out of Body Experiences and Astral Projection
The OBE can be intentional or involuntary, as with near-death events when people report finding themselves floating near the ceiling of their hospital rooms, perhaps observing medical staff attempting to revive them. Trauma, illness, or water and food deprivation, as with Native American vision quests, can trigger OBEs. Lucid dream states are opportunities for intentional OBEs. For the purposes of this article, OBEs may be spontaneous, and astral projection a conscious choice, though some would argue otherwise.
