Translating Information Between the Subconscious and Concious Minds
Teresa L. Frisch, RN, Reiki Master / Teacher 1.9.09
Lyn Buchanan has graciously provided an introductory overview of Controlled Remote Viewing. For other resources, including history, recommended reading, methodologies, and instructors, I would recommend visiting the International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA) website.
Thank you, Lyn. I hope others enjoy learning about controlled remote viewing as much as I have.
One overriding feature of Controlled Remote Viewing is that it uses the body as the translator between the subconscious and conscious minds.
In other words, Controlled Remote Viewing is a physical discipline (a martial art) and not a mental discipline. If you try to think your way through it, it won't work. But, if you simply report your physical (sensory) impressions as you get them, it will work well every time.
Even in the higher stages, your subconscious mind will convey information to you by letting you see images, smell smells, hear sounds, etc. In other words, it uses all of your physical senses to get the information to you.
The most primitive way in which your subconscious body tells you something is by a physical reaction. Just like it can protect you by jumping when there is something scary, or pulling away when there is something dangerous, the fastest and easiest way of giving you information is to make your body move.
The martial arts have known for centuries that, with proper training and lots of practice, these movements can become both very complex, and very dependable.
It is that very fact which lets us get our first bits of information about the target from our subconscious mind.
A karate master teaches his students to "wax on / wax off,” in order to protect from danger coming from the right or left. One day their subconscious mind realizes that there is "danger coming from the right" and, if they have practiced enough, the physical motion of "putting wax on" happens automatically, without the student even thinking about it.
Please note that when the time comes to use a martial art, it does not require thinking. It requires practice. In fact, if a karate-trained person were to get into a fight and start thinking about his next move, he would lose.
Controlled Remote Viewing is a martial art. It does not require thinking. It requires practice.
In CRV, just like in any other martial art, the method for gaining information from the subconscious mind is simple: Design a physical motion which will signify a subconscious thought, and then practice it.
In CRV, we can train our arm to respond in a specific way to a subconscious realization that there is, say, "land" or "water" or "something manmade" at the target site. All we have to do is develop a physical motion that will signify, say, "land,” and then practice it.
With enough practice, every time there is some land at a target site, our arm will make the trained and practiced motion. Seeing that motion, we can know what is at the site.
