The phenomenon and technique called “remote viewing” that was
utilized and developed by U.S. Army intelligence, the Defense
Intelligence Agency (DIA), the CIA and Stanford Research Institute
(SRI) comes down to a very basic and familiar approach: Looking
within for answers.
How can remote viewing help the average person, our nation and the
human race at this point in time? We are facing may questions and
challenges that are sometimes truly frightening: Terrorism such as
the 9/11 attacks, the Iraq war and other wars and conflicts, threats
of pandemic disease, severe social problems in our country and
globally, government corruption, and the list goes on.
A first step may be to understand this idea of remote viewing. Is it
simply enhanced and focused intuition and instinct? Is it
extra-sensory perception (ESP)? Is it related to prayer and
spiritual meditation? Is it using our conscious minds to link to our
unconscious minds and the larger mind out there? Is it scientific in
terms of our understanding of the physics in our natural world?
You guessed it – or did you remote view it? It is all of the above.
DOLLARS AT WORK
Back in the 1970s, ‘80s and early ‘90s, ordinary U.S. military
officers and non-commissioned officers, scientists, ESP researchers
and practitioners, intelligence officers and others discovered that
by looking within, intelligence information could be obtained by
tapping into an apparent system that exists in the natural world.
This system in Nature appears to exist at the sub-atomic, quantum,
or some may say, spiritual levels of our Universe. In remote
viewing, the connectedness of people, things, events, time and space
is used to get answers to questions.
The program, at different points in time, was funded and managed by
the CIA, Army Intelligence and Security Command, the DIA and the Air
Force. When it came to public attention in the ‘90s, it was called
Project STARGATE. However, that was only the last of a series of
The program had also been called SCANNATE, GONDOLAWISH,
GRILLFLAME, CENTERLANE and SUNSTREAK.
People involved in these operations claim that they had great
successes not only in developing and researching this phenomena, but
also in using it for important U.S. intelligence operations. Some of
these remote viewing successes are declassified and in the public
domain. Some, of course, remain secret.
The words “remote viewing” are simply a name that the original
researchers gave to a phenomena that has been around forever. It is
a sixth sense that was used by ancient people in many cultures. It
is probably used by animals and various other creatures. It is
simply another sense we can tap into just like our sight, hearing,
smell, taste and touch.
DO TRY THIS AT
Nowadays, there are many credible training programs available that
teach remote viewing. Many books have been written about it too. And
the Web is full of articles, reports and discussion about remote
The original DIA remote viewing manual is also on the Web.
You can try simple and basic experiments yourself. Have someone put
an object in another room, out of your sight. Then use your
conscious mind to ask your unconscious mind what it is. Is it large
or small? What color is it? What shape is it? What is it made of?
What is it used for? Is it something that moves or stands still?
Even kids can have great success in these kinds of fun exercises.
Maybe remote viewing will be taught in school one day.
The trick seems to be is to pose your question via your conscious
mind, then let go and let your unconscious mind try to retrieve the
answers. Get your conscious mind out of the way.
Remote viewers typically let their fingers do the walking and sit
quietly with a pen and paper. They draw or sketch impressions that
come to them, as well as writing down answers to their questions
about the nature of the things they are trying to remote view.
The reason for this technique seems to be that our bodies and our
nervous system are better at picking up the direct and clear
information through this system, rather than our conscious thinking
mind. So, let your arm and hand sketch impressions about what you
are trying to remote view.
And don’t jump to conclusions about what you think you are getting
back in terms of answers. Our conscious mind may interpret
information incorrectly. The government remote viewers called this
“analytic overlay.” It may walk like a duck, quack like a duck – but
it might not be a duck. Our preconceived notions and imagination can
get in the way of accurate remote viewing, experts say.
INTELLIGENCE, FACING TRUTH
We can use remote viewing formally, like in intelligence operations
and exercises mentioned above, to try to obtain particular
information that is not directly known to us by our other senses.
And, we can just incorporate this knowledge into our everyday lives,
knowing that sometimes our instincts, intuition and gut feelings may
have a scientific basis to them. Sensing danger, getting a bad
feeling about something or someone, changing your plans because of a
certain feeling can all be part of just keeping remote viewing in
the back of our minds – or the bottom of our minds, and hearts.
The ideas of remote viewing may make us think about how our brains
are connected to our minds, our minds are connected to our hearts,
our hearts are connected to our spirits and souls, and all of these
linked to a larger energy, force and intelligence.
When we use all of these resources, we might be able to enhance our
personal intelligence and knowledge. Our IQ might go up in unique
ways. The ability to get a sense of truth or deception, good or
evil, might also be improved.
As we deal as individuals, families, communities and societies with
the complex world around us, we may need all the help we can get.
When some people tell us we must go to a war and others tell us that
the war is wrong, our remote viewing gut instincts may come in
handy. When we hear that there is more to the 9/11 attacks than what
the official story claims, maybe even an inside conspiracy, our soul
searching, prayer and remote viewing efforts may give us insight and
When our loved ones are in trouble or in pain, we can use these
kinds of senses to try to understand and help them. When our troops
are having a hard time of it in Iraq and Afghanistan, and when they
return home, maybe we can apply remote viewing to help them too.
And, for those who have left us and passed on to another dimension
of Nature, it is rumored that remote viewing techniques might be
used to communicate with them.
The mysteries of our planet Earth and our Universe can also be
approached using remote viewing.
What does the future hold?
Earth headed for some kind of environmental or geological
Will extraterrestrial civilizations someday visit us –
or are they already here?
And, if so, are they good or dangerous?
Is there some kind of universal and powerful intelligence that has
our best interests at heart?
Can we get in touch with it, be part of
Will a miracle happen one day to help our planet and the people
and living things on it?
If so, when?
And how would something like
Good questions. Interesting questions. Adding
remote viewing to our
array of skills, tools, intelligences and abilities can only help us
in facing challenges now and in the future.
