Remote viewing is the psychic ability that allows you to view people or places that you can't see with your regular five senses. This means you can't physically see or hear those things using physical senses, but you really can train your own latent psychic abilities to see those things without actually being there in person.
Remote viewing is not the same thing as an out-of body (OOB) experience. OOB, or astral traveling, is where your spirit or ethereal corporation leaves your body and travels to view a person or a place.
Remote viewing is a form of psychic dowsing, where the viewer is using psychic power to seek out whatever he wants to find. The remote viewer is using a form of ESP to locate that which he seeks.
All of us have psychic ability, but for some of us, it may be latent. That is, if it was never fully developed when we were children, it still exists within us, but we simply don't know how to tap into it or use it. And in fact, most of us only use about 10% of our brain's power, with 90% left untouched and unused, so that its potential is wasted.
There are many practical applications for remote viewing, such as making sure that your children are safe and sound when you're away. Remote viewing can add to your security and give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that everything is OK.
Remote viewing is one of the psychic abilities latent in all of us which can be developed through practice and preparation. There have been studies on people who had never before exhibited any psychic abilities; but when they were taught how to attain the trance-like state of relaxation needed for remote viewing, they were able to use this psychic ability.
Try these simple steps to remote viewing for yourself.
*Find a quiet place where you will not be distracted and sit comfortably. Close your eyes and relax.
*Take deep breaths through the nose. You can get better control over your breathing by holding your tongue at the roof of your mouth. This will also suppress yawns as you relax deeply.
*One of the key elements to remote viewing is that you have to believe it's possible to do it. Therefore, as you go deeper and deeper into your state of relaxation, suspend any disbelief you have and simply know that you are very capable of seeing events, people or places that you can't physically see with your eyes at the moment.
*Start with a target that you know very well. Many people work up to this by picturing themselves. Instead of picturing yourself like a mirror, think about how you might appear to other people. It can take some time to work yourself up to the right kind of picture, but when you do this, remember to be patient with yourself. It can be a surprisingly enlightening phase to see yourself as others do, and without a doubt, many people learn things about themselves that they never knew before.
*Once you can master the mental control needed to view yourself from a remote perspective, cast your remote viewing eye a little wider, and observe a location you know very well. Perhaps a parent's home or family member will suffice while you're training your mind. Notice small things that may be out of place, such as dishes on the sink or magazines on the table. When you get a chance, call and confirm what you saw. This reinforcement of what you've seen is important, because it will show you what your mind is really capable of achieving.
It is possible to amend these remote viewing exercises to include two people so that you'll have your feedback and results much more quickly. Instead of viewing places or people you want to see, have a friend sit in another room and repeat a simple movement, like a hand wave or pulling hair. Try to determine through your remote viewing exercises what action your friend is repeating and compare notes to get your results.
Once you've practiced remote viewing, you might find that you can get into relaxed a much more quickly, too. This is because the state you have to be in when you do remote viewing is very similar to the 'trancelike' states achieved under hypnosis. People undergoing hypnosis are still very much alert and aware, but because their bodies are so relaxed, they can much more easily make contact with their subconscious minds.
Your psychic abilities are more easily reached via the sub-conscious, so the more easily you're able to sink into your relaxed trance, the more powerful your remote viewing techniques will become.
