Remote Viewing is the ability to see things at a distance that you otherwise can’t physically see. Most people aren’t aware that around 80% of all of our sensory input is already subconscious, with our minds constantly filling in blind spots and extrapolating incomplete data outwards to understand the world around us.
The ability to view things remotely has been spoken of throughout the entirety of human history, in myths and legends, as an ability of sages and holy men, and more recently, with government research initiatives like Project Stargate.
In the last few decades, the ideas surrounding remote viewing have become much more common knowledge. It’s much easier now to learn how to start Remote Viewing than it has ever been throughout history. The things that have been hidden and esoteric knowledge for so long can now be yours for the taking.
This guide will show you exactly how you can start learning how to practice Remote Viewing, no matter how much experience you have in the process.
How to learn remote viewing
When you’re learning remote viewing, what you’re actually doing is increasing the ability of your mind to connect the dots, collect and access unconscious information, and perceive the things that you’re not consciously aware of.
Learning to tap into this skill is surprisingly simple because Remote Viewing is just that. A skill that can be trained and improved upon with real and focused practice.
Remote Viewing Protocols
When you’re learning Remote Viewing, there is a set of four simple protocols that you should aim to follow, which separate Remote Viewing from simple guessing or other psychic phenomena and push it towards scientific study.
- Your sessions are planned and targeted, instead of unplanned and random.
- Your data is recorded, and can be compared to other sessions, and other people’s experiences.
- Your tests are blind, or double-blind, so you cannot know the target ahead of time.
- Your tests end with feedback, so you can judge the accuracy of your viewings.
How to improve your Remote Viewing ability
Method 1: Choosing physical targets
The first thing you need when you’re attempting to learn Remote Viewing is a target.
Method 1 is the traditional method, where you ask someone to go through magazines and newspapers, cutting out pictures that strike them as important or relevant.
Each picture is then put into its own individual envelope and stacked face down so that there is no possible way for you to see into them.
You should aim to have 5 to 10 separate pictures, which should all be real world places, and should also have a variety of subjects, including places, buildings, natural settings, and possibly even people.
Method 2: Using a target ID
More commonly, Remote Viewing practice is now done using a Target ID, which removes all possible input about a target before you attempt to view it, by reducing it to a series of randomly generated numbers.
There are many sites that have lists of target IDs for Remote Viewing practice, whether pre-generated or random.
A target ID prevents your mind from having any preconceptions about an image before you see it. As many target IDs are randomly generated, until you click the provided link, no one on Earth knows what that image contains, meaning that it’s as free from preconceived ideas as it could possibly be.
When using a target ID for Remote Viewing, it’s best to start by writing the number down on your recording paper, to give you something to focus your mind on.
Beginning your Remote Viewing session
The next step is to quiet your mind and remove as much mental noise as you can. This lets you tap into your subconscious, which is the part of your mind most linked to intuition, with the minimum amount of interference possible.
Let go of all outcomes. Try not to have any preconceived ideas, and then let ideas float to the surface. Do not second guess yourself. Whatever comes to mind first, write down, as this is what your subconscious is presenting to you. Describe what you see, in as much detail as possible, starting with the basic, general impressions, and honing in on specifics.
Write down everything that comes to you, whether it be a date and time, descriptions, shapes, and other dimensional information, sensory information like tastes, smells and temperatures. Also feel free to let your mind wander, to unconsciously connect the dots, using subtle sensations, feelings and intuitions. The more you let your body do this, the more natural it will seem.
If you feel the urge, draw a sketch, or take a birds eye view of the target for a different perspective. Don’t worry how it looks. Often, your own mind will surprise you.
Ending your Remote Viewing sessions
When you’re happy with what you’ve done, end the session. Make sure to take detailed notes, including the date and time of the session, how you felt before, during and after it, and any interesting sensations you experienced.
Only then should you get feedback by opening the envelope or clicking the link or email to your Target ID location, to see how you did.
Do not be discouraged, especially early on, if you do not feel like you were successful. You’re developing a new skill, an entirely new sense, so you should expect to occasionally land reasonably far from the mark.
Be sure to also check every detail about your Remote Viewing experience. If what you felt was far away from what you were attempting to see, check all possible correlations, including colors and shapes, specific emotions you felt, and any possible links between what you experienced, and what was in the envelope.
Linking specific emotions and feelings to certain images can help you be more accurate with your Remote Viewing sessions in the future.
Finally, review, and repeat. You’re trying to learn how to connect to your subconscious. You don’t need to be right first time, as this is an ability that you can learn to cultivate. It’s more important to be honest with yourself, and to learn your own mind.
Remote Viewing is a skill that anyone can cultivate, whether they’re an absolute beginner to the practice or someone with many hours of experience in parapsychological phenomena.
The most important thing to remember with Remote Viewing practice is that you’re simply experimenting and trying to improve your senses. You wouldn’t get upset if you were trying to train yourself to listen and understand musical pitch and failed the first dozen times, because you understand that that is a gradual process that takes time.
Remote Viewing works on precisely the same principles. By taking part in dedicated practice, you can learn to improve your senses and how to better use the skills that are already within you.
Good luck, and happy training!
