Gerald Answers Your FAQs

Hey friends, thanks for all the comments and emails in response to my Thanksgiving post. :)

You’re right, Gerald’s message really is very profound and uplifting! It’s great to see, that it’s resonating with so many of you like it has with me.

Meanwhile, I’m getting many questions about Gerald’s ongoing promotion, and his Remote Viewing and Influencing System.

I don’t know how to answer these, so I’m just going to share with you what Gerald thinks. Here are his answers to two of your most common FAQs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am training with the RV course and keep on falling asleep while listening to the CDs. No matter what time of the day it is, I seem to lose consciousness after a while. What should I do? How do I know when I am in deep Theta?

A: Welcome to the club! You are just doing great! Since you do not seem to have access, for now, to a EEG biofeedback apparatus that would tell you when you reach the deep Theta state, you can securely rely on certain typical characteristics of the deep Theta state.

First and foremost, when you approach the very powerful Delta state, your mind tends to be sucked in (into unconsciousness: alias sleep): very strongly so. This is why you tend to easily lose sense of self and go into what you perceive to be non-consciousness. In reality, you vegetate mostly (unless you are really very tired) at upper Delta and your subconscious mind: below conscious awareness, absorbs every word and notion of the material told to you. A proof of the pudding is that when you are told to emerge from that state, even if you are perceptually asleep, you usually open your eyes. Were you to be told to remember everything that happened at that level after opening your eyes, you would. This is however for more advanced courses where upper Delta is eventually explored with partial awareness of self. At the level of Oneness.

Another sign of being at deep Theta is that your conscious mind becomes very sluggish, your focus of attention gets very wide and non-specific, and you are alike a passive spectator watching unconnected (non-linear) thoughts and images flashing by seemingly without any control on your part. Our learned academic thought specialists like to coin this state: the hypnagogic state. This is because Delta (the matrix as US RV’ers like to call it) operates for us by forming connections that seem coherent to us. Delta is, at Its level, out of the constraints of Time and Space. For a very good reason: IT CREATES TIME AND SPACE FOR OUR LINEAR SLOW PACED DEDUCTIVE THINKING REALITY WHICH UNFOLDS THEN FOR US IN A PERCEIVED LOGICAL CAUSE-AND-EFFECT MANNER (Which means really nothing in the absolute sense of it, only in the relative one when framed with the laws of nature). This is why, if you want to operate at deep Theta using the very structured protocols set up by the US intelligence and military community, you will have a hard time at it. When one reaches deep Theta you usually forget what you came there for, feel very good and relaxed, and at best can only remember one or at the maximum two questions. Your conscious thoughts are almost annihilated which allows for pure information to be received from the Universal Matrix (DELTA). To try to remember complex and multiple questions is impossible. This is not to say that we do not believe in structuring carefully question-and-answer sessions (protocols), as we will see shortly.

Now, are there tricks to remain longer in deep Theta without either sinking in Delta (sleep) or re-emerging in beta? Yes, there are many of them and they are explained and given to out trainees as they request them. With practice one remains for longer and longer periods at deep Theta. The door to Delta opens wider and wider, and the sub-conscious surfaces onto the conscious awareness of the individual. You then become extremely intuitive about others and about the probable futures.

Q: What differentiates our R.V. training from other R.V. schools?

The Accademy of Remote Viewing and Influencing methodology

  1. The Academy of Remote Viewing was the first RV site (Dec. 96) ever to explain remote viewing mechanisms in details, to mention the location of the Universal Matrix within the Delta level of mind, and to put great emphasis on attaining the deep Theta state (4-5 cps) to reach the “interface point”.
  2. We position ourselves directly at the interface (deep Theta) with the Information Matrix (Delta) and use mental perceptions to collect R.V. information. No intervening transducing “gimmick” using the Autonomous Nervous System (such as pendulum, ideomotor responses, dowsing, automatic writing etc… ) is required.
  3. Our methodology only requires a passive natural state of extreme mental receptivity automatically achieved by being at deep Theta. Its attainment is a relatively simple procedure.
  4. Very little rate of interference by the conscious analytical mind since at very deep Theta active conscious thoughts are very sluggish and almost inexistent.

Schools based on declassified US R.V. systems

  1. Most proponents of US military and intelligence RV methodology never fully explained nor really understood the nature of the mental RV data collection mechanisms.
  2. US systems are wide-awake systems (Beta) that often make use of involuntary ideomotor finger responses to try to bridge the conscious mind in their attempt to collect data from the sub-conscious information Matrix.
  3. They employ rigid “active” complex procedures (protocols) requiring quite a long training period in order to really become efficient.
  4. Substantial risk of noise interference by the conscious mind (analytical overlay)

Q. Could you, after having taken the civilian version of our remote viewing and remote influencing courses, perceive the future

A: Certainly. But it will be the probable future. The nearer the specific prediction or the more global it is, the more accurate it will be. With the Remote Influencing course, you will learn to influence the probable future and shape it to your desires  and liking. In order to do this you need to learn to operate in states where your brain waves are slowed down to Theta (4.5 brain wave electrical vibrations per second which is the border to human sleep) or even past this to Delta (brain waves of 1-4 cycles per second) where almost no human could stay awake  before until we taught our students, in our ground breaking Remote Influencing course, how to remain aware and operate  fully in it  (when their brain slows down below 4 electrical vibration per second).

Q: Could you also remote view the past?

A: Yes, you can easily experience again the past. Our remote viewing techniques allow one to break the time barrier. Either backwards or forwards. And see the past and/or the most probable future. Your mind can instantly connect to either. We teach you to do  this by learning to connect to the Universal Collective Mind operating as a background field below your usual human conscious awareness (intellect) . This is done by slowing down your electrical intellectual linear thinking brain to levels where the information field present in the background radiation (Universal Mind) can come up to the surface without being blocked by the usual Human Brain/Mind chatter.

Q: Does our courses automatically increase your intuitive powers (6th sense)

A: Yes, and greatly so. Actually the term “Remote Viewing” is somehow of a misnomer. It should rather be called “remote sensing” or “remote intuiting”.  The “viewing” might only happen as you decide to sketch the information received. It teaches you to listen to the little voice inside of you that goes beyond time and space and, since it cares tremendously about you, tries to forewarn you of impending disasters and put you on better paths in life.  This same level of mind can connect , if necessary to any point in time/space.  Our techniques increase the volume of that “little intuitive voice” up to a point where it becomes an integral part of your life and you then learn to listen to it and trust it.

Numerous research studies at many numerous prestigious universities have unquestionably proven that most highly successful human beings active in any endeavor that requires fast and important decision making (health professionals, businessmen, financiers, military strategists, army commandos and field commanders,  world leaders, etc . . .) were likely to have learned to listen to this very deep level of “Remote  Intuiting.”  They literally would sense the future, other people, and then act accordingly in order to experience a better present for themselves and the ones they care for.

Q: Could you visit, through our remote viewing technology, remote sites, located on earth and/or space almost as if you were there physically?

A: Yes, in perception. The space barrier is very easily breached using the faster than light speed (infinite speed i.e. instant connection) of thought. This was one of the most important applications of mental espionage i.e. remote viewing. However, for very advanced remote viewers, the sensory apparatus becomes restricted to sight (360 degrees around), and thought reading (including emotions) and communicating.

Most trainees experience mental sensory connectivity to the targets of interest.  A great many of our students (around 40 percent) experience bi-locations in the form of OOBE (Astral Projection). Some have remote viewing experiences while dreaming or while having lucid dreams (very frequent). High level learning and knowledge becomes available, originating from the deep Universal Mind.

Q: Could you connect, using these Remote Viewing and Influencing techniques, to the thoughts and emotions of other individuals and perceive them clearly?

A: Yes, since one can, by placing oneself at the interface of the Universal Mind that connects all life forms and operates outside of the realm of linear time/space, connect to any point of perceptual linear space and time, and process the data originating from any individuation of the Universal Mind.

Q: Could you, then, if you so desire, influence their deep level thoughts located within their subconscious mind, hopefully for productive purposes?

A: Yes. However, a warning is in order: The Deep Collective Unconscious or Universal Mind that allows that type of instant communication has its own rules of right and wrong which, although different from humankind’s myopic perception, cannot be bridged but must be understood by the remote viewer.

Q: Why is our course offered in an audio format, as opposed to other media or even a personalized workshop?

A: We feel that, besides being by far more affordable than accelerated seminar training, having the ability to train in the comfort of one’s own surroundings, makes for a more relaxed and less self-conscious atmosphere. Group training often brings active conscious peer-pressure demands on a passive subconscious process such as remote viewing. Even though it sometimes allows for one to be swayed to success by witnessing others achieving commendable results, it often leaves the trainee in a bind as he/she returns home only to find out some weeks later that the crash training was too intense, requires much more expensive repeat refreshers, and often ends up being forgotten.

In addition, our home training approach allows for more sustained results. The student can always repeat, for a lifetime, the material at his/her own leisure, and ends up making the RV/RI abilities become “second nature.”  We use audio material because we feel strongly that, at first, one needs to achieve these deep states of mind operation without being disturbed by daily visuals, and that having the eyes closed in a receptive contemplative mood, while passively listening to audio instructions, is by far more efficient.

Q: Could you forecast, using specialized techniques of remote viewing such as ARV (associational remote viewing), with a significant degree of success, lottery numbers, foresee winners at racing events, perceive future prices of stocks, DJIA, commodities, bonds etc.?

A: Definitely yes. This was done successfully under stringent laboratory controls, at major research centers, by remote viewers that achieved an almost 100% accuracy at trading the silver futures markets. Similar experiments were successfully carried out on horse betting. Russell Targ, one of the original remote viewing researchers at the Stanford Research Institute also mentions having won a lottery on his first try at remote viewing.  Many of our trainees have had success at lotteries, especially the pick-three numbers ones.

Gerald O’Donnell, founder of the Academy of Remote Viewing, easily reproduced the experiments in the commodities and stock markets. He believes that, although one can create a much better future and foresee the near-term web of possibilities, nothing is random in the processes of this planet, even though they might appear so.  Remote viewing (sensing) of the directional moves of financial markets, whether actually traded or not, is an excellent training tool for potential remote viewers that Mr. O’Donnell highly recommends since it involves major global worldwide situations within the events’ matrix. It reflects, by definition, the collective expression of mass psychology, which is what a remote viewer taps into. The more major and the more proximate a market move is, the more vivid, consistent and accurate the remote viewing of it will be.

Q: Could our Remote Viewing and Influencing methods greatly enhance your healing powers?

A: Yes. Many medical authorities are becoming increasingly aware beyond the mere mind action of the placebo, of the great power an individual has of healing him or herself of ailments often cataloged nowadays as incurable. Healing is a very useful byproduct of operating at the levels of mind reached when trained to effectively remote view and especially remote influence. As a powerful diagnostic adjunct one can concentrate upon one’s or anyone else’s biological body and intuitively home on, sense, and visualize any health defect. It is hoped that health professionals will also learn and make good use of such techniques in addition to the plethora of mechanical devices available to them.

Western allopathic medicine was up to quite recently very much aware of the role of human intuition upon diagnostic procedures. In fact, the best and the most competent health professionals were distinguished not only by their knowledge, but even more because of a high level of caring (interconnectedness) and intuitive experience (knowing) that they trusted and relied upon. This has unfortunately been somehow lost, to everyone’s detriment.

The almost miraculous effect of belief and mental visualization upon almost any type of health problem has been extensively studied and proven to be pivotal by many highly respected present health authorities. This is an accepted fact. The remote viewing and especially the remote influencing methodology taught by the Academy of Remote Viewing brings trainees to an extremely deep and powerful level of mind that allows for the natural human intuition to be magnified a thousand-fold and for the reprogramming of the mind and of the body to be achieved in order to heal oneself. Eventually one realizes that he/she can also heal others, even without their conscious knowledge.

One needs however to operate from an extremely deep level of the subconscious mind in order to be effective.

In addition, our Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing courses have been found to induce rapidly a state of very advanced mental and physical relaxation.  They trigger very profound stress relief mechanisms that then become second nature to our trainees. The impact  of daily stress is always highly reduced, and an aura of calm often pervades each individual facing the ever-growing complexity of modern life. Sleep patterns are often dramatically improved. Since the training targets Delta (1 to 4 cps brainwaves) and Deep Theta (4.5 cps), practically all of our trainees slide easily, after their first 2 weeks of training, into the unconscious realm of Delta (sleep) almost at will. We have many prior insomniacs, who after a lifetime of unsuccessful and frustrating chemical and standard treatments have found our tapes and especially our Remote Influence Delta CD be the final answer to their tiresome quest for a peaceful rest. One of the first noticed effects is an increase in the vivid nature of dreams and in the ability to recollect them. Coupled with noticeable enhancement of natural intuitive abilities.

Q: Could you easily rid yourself – using the core of our methodology of Remote Influencing of self-destructive habits such as smoking, chemical addictions, overeating, unmanageable fears, undesirable behavioral patterns etc.?

A: Yes, if it is really what the controlling deep level of your mind wants for you. It needs to accept to override your low-level conscious mind’s destructive influence upon your life. Instead of having entered a destructive path, you should be able to operate at a high level of mind where you are one with that level and implore it to impose a change in the program of your life, and deprogram yourself from past destructive memories. You are always, ultimately, the master of your fate. No matter what anyone else says. Do not take our word for it, but experience it.

Q: Could you attract, using these same Remote Influencing methods, persons of the opposite gender that you desire, by acting upon the higher levels of their minds without their being conscious of it?

A: In most ways and instances yes. However if their subconscious mind is strongly opposed to it, you may have a hard time convincing it to cooperate.

Q: Could Remote Influencing help you mold a better future for yourself?

A: Yes. It is one of the main goals of the Remote Influencing Course taught by the Academy of Remote Viewing. This is truly a life-changing experience. One can only become aware of one’s immense potentials by experiencing them. Pondering or reading about them will achieve nothing.

Q:Could you acquire a photographic memory and greatly enhance your academic achievements through these Remote Viewing and Remote Influencing techniques?

A: Definitely yes. All permanent memories are stored within the deep subconscious and not within the physical apparatus of the brain, especially deeper and older permanent memories.  The brain can only trigger recall as it sends electrical informational requests through electrical nerve chemical impulses and brain mapping. Believing that the brain is the only source of mind is one of the major scientific blunders of our modern times and an impasse of major implications. The brain is the source of human slow linear intellect, but not of Mind. The biological correlations are there and shown within the level of the brain. But that is all they are: correlations, not the source and inspiration.  The brain is really a biological thought computer operating in a restricted perceived time/space construct a linear AI type of intelligence, learning from past mistakes in a reiterative manner. In order to exist and operate it needs to be connected throughout what we define as life to to real Infinite Light intelligence (universal Collective Mind which many call Spirit) operating as a background reality. It does so through many connective pathways operating mainly out of our DNA which is in reality a quantum computer made up of vibratory Light strands. These connective paths are only recently starting to be recognized by the frontiers of science. Our whole incredible human apparatus is but the Creation and epiphenomenon of the Universal Mind/Collective in which we all bath. No exception to that, whether we believe in It or not.

Q: Could you achieve without any effort, using specialized Remote Influencing techniques, the ideal weight that you desire? Can you experience that by operating at the desirable creative level of your mind, you automatically let go of obsessive fears and anxieties that reinforce and energize the physical and subsequent mental vicious circles you imprison yourselves within by thinking about them too often? Can you be made to actually experience and realize the fact that you may actually be constantly creating the reality that you fear and use this as an excuse to be unhappy?

A: Most definitely yes. One can, by positioning one’s awareness at a level of the subconscious data stream below its programming level, reprogram one’s mind and hence change one’s reality. One is constantly creating one’s reality. For good or for bad. Either consciously aware of it, or only subconsciously aware of it. The act of becoming consciously aware of this incredible creative power allows one to control it. And hence control his/her life. The level of mind achieved through our Remote Viewing and Influencing training allows for such a control to take place, as needed.

    Thanks Gerald. When I get to the place on your RI CDs where you tell me to ask questions or manifest I am so peaceful and content that it is difficult to come up with a question or desire. I just want to be here and observe. Very sneaky!
    Remote viewing becomes an oxymoreon. What’s remote to view?

    Listening to the meditational sounds of “The Wood Masted Sailboat” sent me into what appeared to be a deep hypnogogic state. Sitting in an armless wooden chair I soon lost awareness of my body/consciousness. I experienced a life time as a polynesian female who was born simpleminded and banned from her village because of the residents fear/superstition of anyone less than wit-full. My father had trained me in the ways of the sea..consequently I swam well and could hold my breath for prolonged periods. He built me a hut at the periphery of the beach and I sustained myself by diving and retrieving sea creatures for food for which the villagers bartered coconut milk, vegetables and fruit. This proved to be an idyllic life, for being simple minded I had none of the usual worries and fears that plague the normal minded person. My name was Mare-a-day (phonetic sp.) meaning ‘of the sea’ in that language. I was ugly, bowlegged, about 4′ 10″ tall and had a space between my front teeth as wide as my thumb!
    An amazing experience…then the scratching sound of the needle reaching the end of the record brought me back to ‘reality’ and normal consciousness. The 1/2 hour experience was unbelieveable for..although I was sitting upright in an armless wooden chair…when I awoke I was totally rested and refreshed without an ache, pain or discomfort anywhere in my body. How would you classify this experience? Often when I go into meditation, a similar pattern kicks in…and I find myself occupying another body at another place and time. Past life experiences? Remote viewing? I have gathered much from the medtational state.

    Hello Gerald.

    Thank you so much for this explaination. My perception of deep Theta is to liken it to walking a straight line and if you go over one side of it you fall asleep and if you slip to the other you go back into either Alpha or Beta.

    I’ve been meditating for years and although my personal feelings about myself have changed dramatically over the years, I never completely understood what was happening to me. I knew my mind slowed down and my body vibrated during meditation and when I write (it’s slowed right now, and as I go deeper I get “floaty” with what seems like unconnected thoughts, in other words my mind rambles on and on if I let it. As this happens I try to stay aware enough so I can acknowledge the thought but let it go Didn’t realize until now that I was connecting Beta with deep Theta. I also see a light in my mind that pulses in and out a lot. I’m working on disc 12 in the RI series and I’m trying to connect the visual strands of DNA you have placed in my mind with the “pulsing light” I perceive during meditation. That light gives me energy, a lot of energy and so I think if I connect it with something I want to manifest it will happen. Never knew what that light was until now, everything I’ve been doing all these years is beginning to come together. I’m elated that I got your complete RV & RI course. Your whole structure for this course just fit in and enhanced my lifes studies and now I feel I’ll be able to manifest some good things for myself and others and send unconditional love into this world. I would like to request some techniques to be able to stay longer in deep Theta and dip slightly into Delta. I think I’m at the point where I might be able to perhaps dip into Delta a little and bring something back with me.

    Warm regards,
    Janeeda Phillips

    Thank you again for being there, you too Michael

    Afternoon Gerald/micheal jura,

    I have the same issue when i start listening to the cd’s i fall alseep as you have said this is being on the right path how do i get hold of the EEG biofeedback apparatus .

    I have been doing the RI course for the past 4 weeks and indeed i still tend to fall in that sleep stage but as Gerald says, the minute he says to awake I do. I have noticed a much refined intuition lately, a notion of feeling so and so will call or even extreme insights of someone’s life, even complete strangers. Gerald said to just relax and not to analyze, so even when I do fall asleep, I am learning to go with the flow and trust that I will eventually stay awake the whole session. I am loving this course and I believe everything is getting better and better

    This is a sensitive process and the evolution on this level is a matter of a personal level and personal time ,a time when your soul can evoluate as much as the body can make also that energetical jump …
    I can say I am not quite ‘inside’ this matrix , yet. But my mind travels around this because I need a time to accomodate with the information ,(which is not quite new) with your energetic level, Gerald .
    But I began to have interesting dreams , which are quite uniques until now .
    I have had the feeling I am out of my body and almost to felt asleep while I was walking on the street ,which can be very strange ,but I have had this experience in the past . But this time was very strong .I felt how I want to go out of my body and for a few seconds was difficult to control my mind but with a deep , strong breath I said I can call back that part of myself ,and to delay for a while , the fly …for a more safe place .
    The truth is , this course is not for all people. Is very powerful and must have a kind of inner control ,to have a mental health , to have faith that above all these there is a High Intelligence that guide you only in the light as much as you want .
    The mind wants to take control over the things it knows but the soul wants to rise on another higher level .
    It takes a litlle time to let go the old things and just to jump in the new Matrix and to open a new Vortex. Many have had already this experience ,to know what to do to open a portal of light ,or how to take care of it , with whom to work , in real time or in dream , or meditating and so on … The Higher Power always guide us .
    There are also powerful hypnotic suggestions in your course .This is why ,sometimes a student must know better about the teacher ,or the Hypnotherapist .Because he ‘puts ‘his soul in the ‘hands’ of his teacher .This is a big responsability for a hypnotherapist because always , the Karma is a powerful law of the Universe . You know better than me.
    So , is very interesting you have opened this Vortex ,Gerald . Your students follow you closer or from distance ,the important thing is you follow your personal Mission in this life and we all work in this Portal of light and energy .

    We thank you for guidance and support .

    The Higher Power to protect you .

    I wish you a special Winter ,full of joy , love and serenity.

    I send you only light ,

    Thanks for the course and the interviews. I’ve gone through them a few times and have had great results.
    What do you mean by “there are many of them and they are explained and given to out trainees as they request them.” Who do refer to as “your trainees”, anyone who’s purchased the CDs? Are there other courses that are different or more advanced?

    In the 4th interview Gerald said it was important to “flush the toilet” on all the information (thoughts) we’ve collected over eons. He also said that it was important not to focus on the bad things that happen to us in our lives. He said that psychotherapy only opens the wounds and strengthens the negative thought construct in our universe. If we are not to use traditional therapeutic tools to heal ourselves, how do we properly “flush the toilet?”

    Simple Rebecca, I just repeat it to myself three times,

    “Delete that thought and the energy that goes with it”

    When you get into the habit of doing it, it comes naturally.

    The goal is no thought. Any and every thought, good or bad, must be crucified. The mind (ego) is the only enemy to overcome and how few of us can meet the challenge?! In Love.
