My Experience Learning Remote Viewing

I love reading and writing. I came to writing late in life and discovered a world where I feel like a fish in the water.



According to the International Association of Remote Viewing (IRVA), “Remote Viewing is a novel perceptual discipline for gaining information not available to the ordinary physical senses. … it has a long history both as an intelligence gathering tool and as the subject of research and applications in the civilian world.”

Ingo Swann said that remote viewing consists of acquiring impressions about a target that is shielded by distance and time using our innate faculties.

Free Masterclass

As a novelty, I attended Lori Williams’ four-part masterclass on controlled remote viewing in March 2021. The virtual basic course was packed with useful information. We did a couple of exercises that convinced me that I should get deeper into this training.

Lori Williams studied with Lyn Buchanan who worked with the US military as a remote viewer. She became a professional remote viewer and currently teaches various aspects of remote viewing such as controlled remote viewing, practical remote viewing, and CRV Healing.

Online Training

In July 2021, I enrolled in an online training course on Coordinate Remote Viewing and Extended Remote Viewing with David Morehouse Productions. David Morehouse worked with the US military in the original remote viewing program.

We used blind targets in this training. Blind targets are unknown by the conscious mind of the viewer, and allow the subconscious mind to access and convey to the conscious mind information that is accurate.

For four straight weeks, I immersed myself in this training doing nothing else after working hours other than my yoga session.

I listened to audio lessons and studied the “Remote Viewing: The Complete User’s Manual for Remote Viewing” book, course manual, and handouts. I submitted a few assignments and checked my work.

Based on my relatively short experience, I can say that remote viewing works and opens a world full of possibilities and potentialities. My yoga and meditation training had prepared me and made it easy for me to accept the principles of this training.

I am focusing on deepening my experiential knowledge of remote viewing and intend to keep practising and learning.

Intermediate Level Training

In October 2021, I completed my intermediate-level training on Coordinate Remote Viewing with David Morehouse. The format of the training was virtual via zoom spread over three weekends. There were thirty-two of us participants from all walks of life and four trainers.

I am pleased with my progress in how to use this information-gathering tool. It is interesting to journey into my own mind and go beyond.

David Morehouse is a best-selling author and a teacher of Coordinate Remote Viewing (CRV) and Spiritual Transformation.

Ingo Swann

Ingo Swann, an artist and psychic who passed away in 2013 at the age of 80, played an important role in helping to establish the remote viewing protocol and its vocabulary. He wrote several books on the subject of extrasensory perception.

Ingo Swann was a pioneer in the remote viewing project in the US military. He was part of thousands of scientific experiments that were used in proving that remote viewing experiments are repeatable and valid.

He was known all over the world as a researcher of the powers of the human mind. He was a leading figure in governmental and scientific projects to investigate the scope of subtle human perceptions.

I found his book, Everybody’s Guide to Natural ESP that was published in 1991, interesting. I especially liked the part where he talked about the sketches produced by remote viewers.

Practical Benefits

Entrepreneurs, CEOs of major corporations, medical doctors, scientists, teachers, realtors, parents, psychologists, archaeologists, engineers, and authors use RV. They find it useful in their day-to-day lives.

The police in some jurisdictions have recourse at times to remote viewers to help them solve a murder or find a missing person.

I heard a woman who completed the training say that she feels less worried about unknown situations and less nervous about new situations.

Genuine or Pseudoscience?

Opinions are split between skeptics and believers.

Some people believe that there is no scientific evidence that remote viewing really works, and the topic of remote viewing is considered pseudoscience. Remote viewing experiments have in the past been criticized because they lacked proper controls and repeatability.

Paul H. Smith published a book in 2005 titled "Reading the Enemy's Mind: Inside Star Gate: America's Psychic Espionage Program". He published it decades after the cancellation of the Star Gate program due to lack of funding and shortly after it was declassified. A US Army Major, he was one of the viewers assigned to the remote viewing unit in 1983. He served ten years taking part in several American national-security crises of the twentieth century.

Paul H. Smith refuted claims about the lack of proper controls and repeatability and presented in his book facts and examples of what his spying unit had accomplished. He talked about this top-secret program in details and presented a thought-provoking argument on the power of the human mind to go beyond time and space limitations.

Remote Viewing is a well-defined, step-by-step protocol with a precise structure that teaches to separate imagination from real intuitive perceptions. This process allows anyone to access hidden or distant information using only the mind.

This means the remote Viewers sit quietly, become still, and find strength inside themselves to access the small inner voice that guides them.


Personal Experience

I am enjoying remote viewing and have no doubts whatsoever that it works. My focus is on refining my senses of perception to dig deeper into my virtual adventures. It is just a matter of perceiving with clarity and accuracy. November 2021.


Remote Viewing is the practice of seeking impressions about a remote or hidden target site, sensing it with the mind. It is a fascinating ability. People from all walks of life can learn it and become Viewers. Some people become better at it than others but everyone can learn it and learn from it.

That's a good idea for an article. I'm just not sure if I want to put it out there in the public realm.

Liliane Najm (author) from Toronto, Canada on April 21, 2021:

I’d like one day to read about your convincing interactions.

John Coviello from New Jersey on April 20, 2021:

I hosted a seminar on remote viewing 25 years ago with Lyn Buchanan as the key speaker. I have to be honest that I was never totally convinced it was real despite his strong presentation. Since then, I've had a lot of convincing interactions with psychics, which has opened my mind up to the possibility that remote viewing is a real thing. Certainly, the U.S. military took it seriously.
