Remote viewing (gathering sensory perceptions / data across time and space) gives the conscious and subconscious minds the opportunity to learn to communicate and work together on a common task. Like any other skill, proficiency in remote viewing takes time and practice. The International Remote Viewing Association provides a full explanation and guidelines for performing a beginning remote viewing session. (read more)
An easy remote viewing experiment involves simply relaxing and trying to “see” or describe a picture hidden in an envelope (the target generated from this target pool). Don’t expect to name the picture, just try to describe what you see. True remote viewing signals are often vague and fuzzy, not clear, sharp or distinct.
You are unique. You have your own personal “lexicon” (language / vocabulary) based on your life experiences. This is how you perceive, communicate and relate to situations or events in real life. Therefore, your remote viewing perceptions will be descriptions of the target as you see / view it / understand or associate with it.
Example: one person may describe a houndstooth coat as a pattern because they mentally “saw” it. Another may describe it as a “texture” because they mentally “touched” it. Remember, this may be the first time your two minds have ever acknowledged each other or worked together on a common task. You are not viewing and reporting on the feedback photo, you are reporting on the site and what happens there. This, and learning to obtain site contact are the reasons for working a beginning practice remote viewing session, so do not expect to “get the target.” Your job as a remote viewer is to describe, not identify. Identifying is a conscious-mind activity
The purpose of this target pool:
provide targets with a variety of Phase I gestalts and Phase II sensories and dimensionals
provide people who have never tried remote viewing the opportunity to do so
provide student and operational remote viewers longer session opportunities, enhancing skills acquisition through consistent practice and use of stages and tools
provide a session / perception scoring tool that objectively demonstrates personal lexicon knowledge and human diversity
To perform your remote viewing session you will need a quiet place, free of distractions where you can work. You will need a supply of plain white printer paper and good black ink pen(s). Write on the front side of the paper only – never flip it over and write on the back.
prompt the target generator for a random set of alpha-numeric that will match the target feedback sent to your email address
write down the date and time at the top right corner of your paper
write the alpha-numeric in the middle of your paper
relax and try to perceive the impressions that come into your mind from the photo in the envelope
moving down the left side of the page, write one perception at a time. Examples: colors, sounds, smells, tastes, temperatures, shapes, lines, patterns, textures, concepts, purpose
make sketches as you go along of what you think you are perceiving
write “End session” with the time and date at the bottom when you think you are finished time-stamp it electronically (optional)
After session evaluation and scoring:
Open the target feedback sent to your email address.
Print the feedback image(s) and information and attach them to your target.
Print the Buchanan CRV Data / Perception Scoring Model and perception definitions (see links below).
Compare your results to the feedback photo and any information provided about the site.
With each perception ask yourself if there is something at the target that matches. Choose Yes / No / Maybe. An example of “maybe” is the viewer records the sounds of seagulls but there are none seen in the seashore feedback photo. Frequently there are seagulls at the seashore, so maybe is permissible. You are not describing the photo, you are describing the site. Like a camera, your “lens” may be zoomed out.
“Maybe” is not included in the scoring percentage for the session, therefore scores are not inflated and the subconscious mind is not chastised if it did good work.
Keep your session and data sheet for documentation of current skills and evaluation of areas of strength and weakness.
Some perceptions will come from the conscious mind trying to name or guess what it saw in session. Be objective and honest. Your subconscious will appreciate your honesty and realize that you appreciate it too.
Optional Personal Verification Tools:
Time-stamp your session when you end it
Open the email with attached feedback and forward it to yourself and print it. The date and time will be documented. (No, it does not prove that you didn’t peek, only that your session was time-stamped before this email was opened.)
Enlarge your feedback image to see if what you recorded is actually there
Increase your personal lexicon (base of knowledge). Research the site to learn about the culture, location, events, activities, climate and people there.
