IRVA 2004 - Remote Viewing as an Awareness Practice
This presentation will explore the possibilities of personal transformation that exist in a remote viewing practice. We will explore the changes of belief and self-image that occur during remote viewing training and application, with an emphasis on the significance of the relationship with the unconscious for integration of shadow aspects of the personality.
Remote viewing in essence is about information gathering. In this capacity it isn't any different than normal physical means of investigation. It is a tool that can be used by just about anybody for just about any purpose. The only limits to what we can do with remote veiwing seem to be set by the beliefs we have about it. Being such a simple tool, one might not think remote viewing would have any inherent tendency or capacity to transform consciousness. But it does. What makes this tool different is consciousness. It takes our own consciousness to do remote viewing. If we engage in a serious practice of remote viewing our consciousness will change.
The more time we spend remote viewing, the more we become aware of ourselves, the workings of our minds and our internal beliefs. Beliefs about intuition must be addressed, as well as beliefs and understandings about reality, consciousness, right and wrong, and even who we are at a core level. The deeper beliefs and attitudes we have about ourselves and our reality affect what we perceive and our ability to view it. As we increase self-awareness we become better viewers.
RV techniques rely on establishing a connection to the unconscious. This connection is perhaps the most significant aspect of remote viewing in terms of personal transformation. Cultivating a relationship with our own unconscious allows us to integrate shadow aspects of our personality. When noise occurs in an RV session, it takes us away from our conscious focus. Noise is a manifestation of unconscious intentions and reveals shadow parts of ourselves. The RV process allows us to work with our shadow parts and bring them into consciousness. Owning our shadow makes us more congruent in all our activities, we become better viewers and more rounded people.
IRVA 2001 - Developing Sensory Awareness for Facilitation of Remote Viewing
The focus in this workshop will be to learn flexibility and openness in all areas of perception and personal awareness. It is important to learn how we pay attention and how we perceive along with acquiring specific intuitive protocols.
Participants will experience perception, visualization, relaxation, and remote viewing exercises with an emphasis on flexibility. Some of the exercises will include: drawing from the right side of the brain, olfactory, tactile and visual descriptions, open focus visualizations (based on Les Femhi's synchronous alpha techniques.), vocabulary building, and relaxation. These exercises serve to shift the participants mode of awareness over to right brain dominance. This slightly altered state seems more conducive to intuitive perception. In the same way participants will be advised of the use other natural altered states - pleasurable memories, meditation, rhythmic audio entrainment, even dream states and hypnosis - to facilitate intuitive awareness.
The path to heightened perception and intuition is now mapped better than ever before. But it is only within personal experience that an individual can know the meaning of intuition, consciousness, even spirit. This is why personal experience of intuition is most important. When taken in the perspective of the whole being, lifelong evolution and growth, intuitive and remote viewing skills offer a much greater opportunity than simply satisfying the desires of the cognitive mind. The deeper self can begin to grasp ideas such as non-locality, holographic qualities in nature, and timelessness in a way that has personal meaning. Psi phenomena remind us that the world is profoundly rich, that wonder and awe are important requisites to being human.
