How I Discovered Remote Viewing, and How YOU too Can Master It

Hello boys and girls,

A lot of the time I get a ton of emails from people in our blog community asking me how I stumbled upon remote viewing and what got me interested in it in the first place.

So instead of replying to like a MILLION emails, I thought sharing it here with everyone will be a better idea. :)

This Is My Story

I began experiencing flashes of intuition as a teen. It usually happened during dreams.

I’d dream about a particular friend I had not seen in years only to have that very friend call me that very day!

I poured through books on the subject from experts in the field of mind-science including Jose Silva, Napoleon Hill, and Robert Monroe. I experienced OBEs and incredibly detailed remote viewing experiences.

Crazy, I know!

Later, when I could afford it I took several seminars including The Silva Method and Hemi-Sync (by the Monroe Institute).

This helped me fine-tune my skills, particularly along the lines of remote viewing an individual’s health and on remote influencing specific outcomes.

I started this blog to simply collect snippets and videos of interesting remote viewing articles I found online.

But lately, I’ve actually had the opportunity to interview and get to know many of the giants in this field – including Ed Dames who was with the CIA, Gerald O’Donnell, Stephan Schwartz and even Paul Smith who was a Stargate insider.

I’ll be sharing my conversations and interviews with you through the lessons (if you haven’t signed up for them yet, do so at the top right box in this blog).

So, Why the Passion for RV?

Well I think Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing are the next frontier of science.

They hold untold possibilities for helping us create a better and saner future for our offspring and to help us understand the spark of the divine that lies within us all.

And that, to me, is very exciting!

Hope you enjoyed reading this far.

Gotta run now and spend some time with my kid.

Talk soon,

PS – Please share your story below. I’d love to know how YOU got started with remote viewing or heard about it.

    Hi Michael
    I was taught in a series of psychic classes I took many years ago.I’ve been using it for remote viewing and absent healing (medical intuitive). Confidence can be a problem especially near skeptics. I know I am meant to help people
    with this. When the kids were small it also came in handy to check on them.
    I’ve just got my Past Life Regression Certification and found it works there too, to confirm a clients perception of
    what they and those around them looked like in that life.
    Kindest Regards

    I have always been very intuitive. The first time I participated in a remote viewing exercise I hit the target-so to speak. It was in picture form. I bless you for offering this. I now have more time.
    Actually we need to make time…

    It’s funny but your story is almost identical with mine!
    I hope to be able to dedicate more time to the remote viewing and healing. Thank you for sharing with us.

    I was randomly surfing youtube, found someone interviewing an RV expert (probly Stephen Schwartz)-I’d never heard of RVing up to this point – and he asked the interviewer if he’d like to “try it out”, he said he had something in his pocket -could the interviewer tell him what it was? so i stopped the video clip, and sketched almost without any thought (well yes of course now i know that’s what i did) and it was this strange shape,which i had no idea what it would be called, just the shape and lines and arrangement of it, then i started the video again, and he pulled out exactly what i had sketched ! That’s what hooked me, I’ve had great success and I am glad i had such a simple and easy introduction -was doubly amazing to me because it wasn’t in “real” time, it was an old youtube video clip.And I still was able to capture it. I still get a real kick out of getting it “right” !! It’s greatly satisfying.

    I didn’t know what RV is until I hit the web a few years ago.

    Maybe someone directed microwaves at me and other kids for experiment. I haven’t counted that out, but since certain events from my childhood, I’ve had precognitive dreams.

    I still remember this dream: I was working at this huge building where it was dark inside with all kinds of weird decorations like Halloween and all kinds of weirdos were whispering secrets to each other, then I suddenly couldn’t breathe for some reason.

    About a decade later I found myself working at SRI chemical research building where it’s dark in many places with all kinds of weird bucky ball decorations. I recall passing a few conversations where the scientists were talking about some really bad stuff. At a lab one of the scientists told the other, “I can’t take anymore.” then the other said, “You have to. We have a schedule to meet…” When I passed the lab, I suddenly couldn’t breathe because of the fumes.

    I have always had an ‘extra sense’ about things. I am only going to mention a little bit here. Many years ago, I met someone who studied and experimented at Stanford. Our talks about the nature and quality of insight and things like meta-cognition felt/feels like ‘second nature’ to me. He gave me a paper about superluminal communications research being done in conjunction with the military. While I am not a ‘physics heavy’ and have not understood the formulas, I do appreciate the truth in the ideas about communication on another whole level. Once I went to a benefit with another friend. There were three women I met at different times while I ‘worked the crowd’, away from my friend. While the information never came up in conversation, I knew details about their lives. I was ‘impressed’ somehow. Several days later my friend confirmed my ‘knowledge’ during a phone conversation. He is an Organizational Development consultant and knows how to ask neutral questions. Needless to say, my first-mentioned friend appreciated the connections. You also could say that I have made a few trips here and there. I am sure that some of you will get the picture. So far, I have not engaged in any training of any design other than my own. Perhaps I will. One day, I did get a kick out of following a strong and ‘different’ feeling to visit a casino to sense and play a certain machine. It provide me $20K. For the folks who are aware of less, let me say that believing (i.e. seeing the Truth) is essential. It also occurs to me that certain alignments are in effect with one’s certainty – I have yet to fully experience the Truth in a way that is sustainable over ‘time’. Think outside of language! Love and blessings to you all. Pre-script: What energies are the most ‘harmonious’ to yours, which can resonate with you? Your own! Try asking your future self a few questions and see what happens.

    Hey I’m really enjoying following the comments – yes I think folks who would be drawn to something as non mainstream as RVing might be kind of in a class of their own, not that anyone can’t do it – but I know lots of folks who just wouldn’t be able to grasp the absolute simplicity of it or who would even scoff. (fear causes blindness sometimes). Anyways, great stuff, hope to see more folks joining in soon.

    While I was open minded enough to do UFO research, I didn’t think too much of the reality of RV, auras, etc. But all my research took me into the paranormal, and without an understanding of it, there was a lot about UFO’s that just didn’t make sense. I never expected to learn that psi is a skill we all have to one degree or another, but that simple truth took me further, until I saw an event through time and space that transcended coincidence with odds of 44 quadrillion to one, the detail was so clear. The funniest was when my sceptic sister spoke with me about one of her students, I told her the student’s name, and she just kept right on talking.
    Investing in your future in this way is well worth the effort, change of lifestyle, and the peace it engenders. The world is for you, not the industrialists or politicians.

    It´s so interesting to hear your stories! I am a typical Natural psychic according to the profile and aboute 4 years ago I attended at an workshop with Joseph Mc Moneagle and Ed May here in Stockholm (Sweden) and I fell in love with RV and it felt like I finally had come home! I was so excited at this workshop that it took a long time to find the ground again after that. A friend of mine also invited Lyn Buchanan to Stockholm and to hear him was also super nice and inspiring. I want to investigate applications for RV and I am doing just that, it´s so interesting and I am a mental junkie so this subject can really entertain me for life. Recently I tried an RV question aboute my core assumption aboute life that hinders me to reach my full potential. I strongly recommend this question if you want to get some positive changes in your life! I agree with “WiseGuy” who suggest to strengthen your connection with all your “selfs” that is out there (interdimensional self maybe?)
    Wish all of you the best and thanks for this excellent blog!

    Hey guys. Scientific IS the word for it. Einstein hit it right on the head with his Unified Field Theory. I’ve been tuning in to the electrical frequencies for as long as I can remember. Astral travel, RV, clairaudience, clairsentience, past lives… we are all born with the ability to do it. Some of us refine it to a higher point than others…it’s a matter of focus. What hinders us, to begin with, is usually our parents attitudes…and their lack of knowledge on the subject. The skeptics that poo-pooh it are no help either…discouraging others(children particularly)from keeping an open mind. The dream state is a great place to pick up info…as well as to communicate with those that have passed over…since we both are functioning in similar frequencies while in that state. While in the body we are functioning in the lower physical frequencies, while our brain and our ‘super consciousness’ have the ability to function in the higher ‘hertz’.

    About four years ago someone broke into my locker at work and stole some of my tools.After thinking about it for about 30 minutes,i had formed a picture in my mind of someone in blue a jumpsuit.He was tall and skinny with blond hair.At the end of my shift, as i was going out of the plant,i came across this man.He was wearing a blue jumpsuit and had blond hair.I walked up to him and asked “where did you put my tools”?If only you could see the look in eyes when i asked that question!

    I RV frequently, but I always pray before. I have a radio show/blog and people are amazed at the analysis of current events but they simply don’t understand that they can do it too. It’s just a matter of clearing stress out of your life.

    hello michael,

    i do not have the funds to attend all the classes there are on remote viewing and influencing. so which one do you recommend if i can only attend one? i am actually from the Philippines, and the nearest place where i can go to attend a class would be hongkong or the neighboring countries for the Silva Mind Method. I really would like to learn remote influencing, especially healing as i would like deeply, deeply to keep my family healthy. i am a general physician, and i have the calling to heal, however i fight it.

    so which is the best course to take? can you please compare the courses you have taken? please reply to this question through email, so as to keep your opinion discreet.

    really hoping for you input on this.

    thank you very much.

    I had not heard the term remote viewing before but all my life I have experienced unexplainable experiences with beings and things beyond what would be considered “normal.” I come at it from a Christian perspective and have experienced out of body journeys in healing prayers. It really opened up for me at 22 when I graduated from college and spent much time alone, quiet with a new baby.

    Hey peoples, I got some news for eveyone. News that are important that I’m predicting is going to happen on 2012. By the way michael your videos are great k. Umm not long ago I started training in the arts of psi and chi. I’m studying remote viewing and I saw something doing it. It’s about 2012. I saw people bending elements and it was amazing . It was like avatar and I have a reason to show this is true. So rarely the planets r suppose to aline and in 2012 that is going to happen. A long time ago people use to be able to bend the elements and the planets alined then so the bending must have been stopped and on 2012 our bending is going to activate again . I’m so tired so I’m srry I have bad grammer k.

    I met a friend on facebook and she wanted to know what remote viewing is exactly. We played a game over the phone called i spy with my little i visualised her green truck with flames. i thought at first her vehicle was on “fire”. We agreed to meet at a coffee shop and i told her i would like to pay her parking ticket. Sure enough, the next day, her “truck” recieved a parking ticket. i did offer to pay it lol.

    I lived in New York. My mohter lived in Texas about 10 years ago. I wanted to see a figurine she was making. I was sitting at the table thinking about her figurine. I just saw it. Then a week later she was painting a picture of an eagle for me. So I just thought I would like to see that and I did. She sent it to me a week later with the picture of the figurine. I was really happy. I have always seen events now and then. I broke up with my old boy friend because I told him not to fall at work and hit his head. His brother tuck me to his work and asked if that was were it was going to happen and I said yes. Two weeks later it did. He fell from a high building. He grabbed ahold of it. He fell and broke his foot. He called me a witch. I really did not do any thing to the man. I actually loved him. So It is with most people who have this gift they don’t say anything. People are very weird and will beat you up or other things when you present yourself as you truly are. I really would like to get better at this. It really can be awful to see a crime and feel it before it happens and not really know were it is or you can not stop it. It leaves you with a feeling of powerlessness.

    I’ve had similar experiences as you. I have a high ESP level since childhood and I’m not sure if it was RV or not but my dreams are always past, present or future. I had a dream years ago I was in a lab coat explaining things to people and that was it. I’m an American teacher in China right now but off to be a Medical Laboratory Scientist. Go figure. I do wonder how to get to that point of conscious you have talked about. I will research it. I have to say an open mind and confidence plays a huge role in anything to do with the mind. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, I found out about RV on Coast to Coast AM when George Noorey interview Ed Dames a few years back, and I bought a kit to get started. The hardest part for me is to find a place where it’s quiet and nuetral to play the game by myself. So I haven’t used it for a while. I do want to get more into RV as I believe this can have a positive twist on our lives.

    It started about two years ago when i was laying in bed and i thought something weird was happening but i soon realized i had a special ability.Not knowing what i was doing i let it go and thought nothing of it. I just moved to Nebraska from Delaware and i was laying on the floor thinking of my brother and i was relaxed and comfortable i felt heavy at first and then i realized i was here in Nebraska and with an instance i was in his trailer looking at him and his room mate and with in an instance i was back on the floor. i tried the outer body experience the next day today and i was free but it seemed dark like i was in a black room i felt lost i snapped out and my heart was hurting. i am new to this but i am a strong believer. patience is the virtue.

    I happened to be fortunate enough to stumble upon major Ed Dames
    and started reading about R.V. I heard about it a year ago, but
    didnt really delve into it. At present Ive read a lot but never
    tried it out,so I want my first attempt to be spot on but Im still not sure that I fully understand how to do it properly. Hence Id
    really appreciate it if you could give me some pointers to make
    sure I get it right.Thanking you for your time and enthusiam.

    i have only recently heard about remote viewing and remote influencing. It seems that I’ve been doing some of that on my own since i was a very young.That’s why I’m interested in why I did all of this on my own, and maybe i can improve.

    For example, when I was about 12 in Arizona, I was walking inthe hills above Phoenix, where there were still walls from indian ruins, and I thought to myself that if i had been leaving, or moving away, i would have placed a matate (corn grinder) on the corner of a wall that I pictured in my mind. i went over the top of the slope and walkd right up to it and picked it up and carried it away. Today, it is priceless. in my mind, it was like I would say to myself, letting my mind go blank, sort of like what if such and such would happen. that’s how i always do it.

    So, just to tell you, I hope i can benefit from reading your e-mails. There are many other times I have experienced the things that people are talking about and paying for. Do you think there are many other naturals around? i know I am one.
    Please reply, I’m interested in what you hve to say.—Carole

    Hey Michael,

    I think that the first time I heard of Remote Viewing In details was from your interview with G,O.D. I understood, better yet, much of what he said sounded familiar to me.
    Well to explain why, I need to tell that besides intuition, I think I was born with some psychic abilities. Believe me when I say that growing up, I totally refused to accept it. It was out of fear. Growing up, I was taught to be fearful. I had a very unique up bringing.( I do no want to go there now).
    However time after time of psychic moments that I had experience forced me to not deny it but to accept its reality.
    So Remote viewing manifested on me and not me seeking it out. In other word is not my choice, is a kind of force that takes over me to places. Yet I am able to remember. I have enjoyed some times but other times I still fearful that i might not come back. I have not been conected for the last 2 -3 last years. I better leave it there. So there you have it. This is a part of what I call my lonley world.

    Love & Peace

    Michael having recently joined your Blog and been exposed to the RV & RI I am pretty keen to get started as deep down I am not surprised we have the capacity to do this I was just not aware that people were practicing and teaching this.

    I notice that you promote two different teachers Gerald O’Donnell, who I have listened to his interviews with you and are very impressed both with what he talks about and your ability to clarify the various points and Ed Dames, is there any point in belonging to both as my gut feel is with Gerald.

    Also in a interview or was written somewhere that there was an opportunity to get a 30 day trial for $1 which I cannot find, I have a short term cash flow problem, if so could you or someone else forward me the link.

    Michael, I just began my journey of awakening Jan. 9, 2009, this is my next step my Mentor plans to teach me RV-ing that had been hidden from us for years. NOW humanity can learn and fight back knowing the tools of the trade. :-) You all seem to be seasoned travelors. I am now weird to my MOM so may as well go all the way. :-) Looking forward to any help. No money makes it very difficult to get help. Some one should do something to help humanity, LIKE X-military men that could give us a leg-up and help us learn who we are and the true 12-Strand DNA beings we really are, locked in a grid to keep us dumbed down. SO any Maj. or Adm. or any Military man that knows trade secrets WE HAVE REALLY BEEN PAYING FOR—-Shout it out to US–WHO paid your way to learn RV-ing from the CREAM of the crop, who the Government always takes as their own. (OH whoever mentioned Einstein as so great, Remember Tesla was the guru—and the Gov. burried his free Energy and made “Einstein” sound greater. Do your research. :-) Tesla called poor Einstein an “Idiot.” Research and find out. –Any of you on this blog that can help us NEW-BES “YOO-HOO” we are here. I have a lot of catching up to do.:) LOVE YOUR STORY MICHAEL.:) I Will find someone to help me free–they are out there. Peace and Love to all Nancy from USA (Penna.)

    My father turned me on to some psi stuff in my early teens, particularly when we hadn’t heard from my eldest sister in over 9 years. He showed me how to “contact” her wile she was dreaming. She called the very next day, and I have always remembered that episode in my life as a very unique experience. Now with the internet, many options to rekindle and continue to learn more about what is really going on with the remote viewing and astral projection world are right at the tips of my fingers. Good literature was hard to come by back then.

    I also have a deep passion in remote viewing, i came across the subject after reading Lyn Buchanan’s book “The Seventh sense” because i was in the same boat like you looking for some answers, because i always get these dreams and visions that comes true. it’s an interesting subject because we are just starting to discover how much the human mind is capable of.
