What is Remote Viewing?
Simply put, remote viewing is the art of viewing events, people and information from a distance. The adherents or practitioners go into a trance or meditative state, focusing their attention on their “target” and feeding back to the group their findings or impressions.
Unlike Astral Projection (otherwise known as O.B.E. – out of body experience), the practitioner does not leave their body. They “project” their mind or create a portal or conduit which allows them to receive information and/or view their target, in order to collect and relay whatever they see.
A Brief History of Remote Viewing
Remote viewing was practiced as early as the times of Ancient Greece, but the modern applications can be traced back to the 1930’s, where scientists experimented with clairvoyance, telepathy and out of body experiences – otherwise known as Astral Travel. These studies were the basis for remote viewing.

As time moved on, researchers practiced and studied the above mentioned skills, along with controlled experiments focused on refining and formalizing remote viewing. In the early 1970’s, a research team conducted an experiment which attracted the attention and funding from the CIA.
For the next twenty years, the research continued to be funded by the U.S. Government, as well as other Governments around the world, conducted in secret and garnering interest from those in defense agencies. Remote viewing was then used to collect intelligence from around the world, becoming known as the “Star Gate” program.
Later discontinued and closed by the Government in 1995, some of those involved in the research and practice of remote viewing produced tell-all books, gave interviews and developed their own training programs and continued to conduct their own research.
5 Simple Techniques for Learning How to Remote View
First, it’s important to understand the mental and physical states required to successfully remote view. Factors such as stress, emotional or physical pain and many others which might affect or distract you from your practice will impede your progress and muddle your thoughts.
Once you’ve cleared these elements from your life – at least momentarily – via meditation, good health and other things which assist in ensuring a stable and relaxed state, you’ll be better positioned to achieve success and attain a clearer path to positive results.
1) Know Your Target
Plan some simple experiments, such as the inclusion of an assistant who will place a picture or a note with a simple message or symbol in an envelope. Whatever or whoever you choose as your target, make sure that there’s no way you could get a hint of what they are or what they’re doing in order to ensure the success of the experiment.
Another experiment could be sending your assistant out to another room or even outside the house or building. Have them go somewhere and perform a simple ritual or daily activity. If you’re not including an assistant, try to focus on the weather in a particular location and quickly check it afterwards.
Whatever your target, start simply and build up to a level of complexity as you develop your skills. Also consider the tools you might need. They could include a pad and pen, blank paper to draw on or a voice recording device to report your findings.
2) Perceiving the Target
Another thing to remember is that you may receive cloudy information which is attached to your own memories and reactions to the received data or imagery. You should know enough about your own psychology to be able to sort through what is real and what is not related. Don’t try to rationalize the data as it’s coming.
Making sure that you prepared carefully, ensuring a clean and clear state of mind and body, go into a meditative trance or close your eyes and focus on visualizing and developing a portal to the target. Whether you use the image of a window to look through or a magnifying glass, use what works for you.
Once you’ve settled into a comfortable state and have established your portal – even if your eyes are closed – start writing, drawing or recording your impressions. No matter how strange they might be, don’t stop the flow of information and keep going as you perceive whatever comes.
3) Add to the Data
Once you feel that you’re done, open your eyes and look over the results. Whether written, drawn or recorded, note your reactions and feelings towards what you see. Even if you have a scribble, a bizarre drawing or a strange recording, note anything that strikes you or feels relevant.
Again – don’t rationalize the data. You shouldn’t have had any preconceived idea of what you were going to view remotely. You can interpret the information after you’ve recorded every impression and thought towards what you initially perceived. Even if it’s a mess – you might figure it out.
4) Rinse and Repeat
You have the first wave of information, but it’s time to repeat the experiment in order to build on what you already have. You can incorporate other methods, such as using Playdough or another tactile medium – like paper or wire – to build a 3D model of what you are perceiving.
Otherwise you can use the same methods and record what you see. Even if it feels like you’re perceiving new information, record it or build it in order to discover anything new which might help with the final result. Once you’re done, repeat step three and add to the data.
5) Interpret the Result
Now it’s time to figure out what the target is or discover the remote information. Look over your notes or evidence and employ your rational senses. What do you think the target is? Is it a message, a person or an image? What is the overall impression in a nutshell?
Once you have your definitive answer, check it against the actual target. How close is what you perceived to the contents of the envelope? Were you able to correctly explain the actions of what your assistant performed or where they went? Was the description of the weather accurate?
Keep all your data together and label them clearly for future reference. Include the date and even record how you were feeling on the day and other surrounding circumstances and events, which may have had an impact on your experiments.

Remote viewing is a difficult skill and takes a long time to perfect, with much practice and perseverance. Remember to start with simple targets that include clear and fully formed lines and imagery. You can build up the level of complexity as you go along.
