Do you know what the term ‘remote viewing’ means? It’s the ability to ‘see’ places, objects and people that are not actually within your line of sight visually. That is, you can’t see or hear these people, objects or places by visual means, but you can use your own psychic ability to ‘see’ things within your mind’s eye, even if you can’t see them with your physical eyes.

It is important to understand that remote viewing is not an out of body experience. An out of body experience involves detaching from your physical body and traveling the planes; the travel is incorporeal.

Remote viewing is more like dowsing, where you’re using your own mind’s power to find whatever it is that you’re seeking. The remote viewer actually uses a type of ESP to find whatever he’s seeking.

When we are young, the psychic ability comes much more naturally, but it is still something that we can pick up as we get older. Consider the fact that we only use ten percent of our brain; it might be a good time to put the other ninety percent to good use! When you train yourself, you will be able to do just that.

Remote viewing gives you the ability to ‘see’ what’s going on when you need to. For example, it may give you peace of mind as a parent to know that your children are okay because you can simply ‘check in’ on them whenever you need to. This peace of mind and security is simply invaluable.

What makes remote viewing different to other forms of psychic abilities is that anyone can learn how to do it. Studies on many non-psychic people have shown that once these people had been taught to enter into a sufficient trance-like state, they were able to engage in remote viewing with high levels of accuracy.

If you want to try remote viewing, there are a few tips you can look into.

*Sit down in a quiet place and in a comfortable chair. Make sure you’re not distracted by anything like noises, lights, hunger, or other discomfort.

*Close your mouth and breathe deeply through your nose, relaxing as you do so. You may find it easier to control your breathing if you lightly press your tongue to the roof of your mouth. This will also help make it easier to avoid yawning during this phase of the exercise.

*You should allow yourself to sink deeper and deeper into your relaxation. As you go into a light trance, you need to have a strong conviction or belief that you really are able to see people or places that you’ve never encountered physically.

*Try first by choosing a simple remote viewing subject so that you can see that you truly are capable of this type of psychic power. One way to do this is to ‘stand’ in front of and facing away from your relaxed, chair-sitting self in your mind’s eye. Now, look back at your relaxed self from the perspective of your standing self, as though you’re looking at a mirror image. What do you see? It can be a little difficult to do this at first, but patience will get results. When you can see yourself as others would see you from this perspective, it will be wonderfully surprising.

*If you’re able to control the remote viewing of you sitting in position, try ranging your mind a little further a-field and view something that you know well. A family member’s house is perfect for this. Try to notice any items that might look out of place, such as dishes on the sink or clothing hanging on the line. Then when you’re done with your exercise, call that person and verify what you saw. This verification is important as it allows you to reinforce your own capacity to your own mind.

As you become more practiced, you can also try another type of remote viewing exercise. Instead of viewing places or people you want to see, try seeing if you can ‘view’ a friend who is doing a particular motion. Have a friend or family member sit in another room so that you can’t see him or her, and then have them repeat a simple movement like hand waving or twirling hair. With your remote viewing skills, see if you can see what your friend or family member is doing and then compare notes to see how accurate you are.

Once you’ve practiced remote viewing techniques for a while, you may find that it’s quite easy to get into a relaxed state, much easier than previously. Getting into a relaxed state is very similar to the trancelike states people assume when they undergo hypnosis. Under hypnosis, one is still very much wide awake and aware of his or her surroundings, but the body itself is very relaxed and therefore hypnosis participants are much more easily able to access their subconscious minds.

The subconscious mind is the seat of our psychic capabilities. The more you practice relaxation and remote viewing, the better you will get at it.
