art and science of remote viewing received unprecedented attention
recently in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The A.R.E.
for Research and Enllightenment) and IRVA (The International
Remote Viewing Association) sponsored an historical conference in
Edgar Cayce’s hometown the first weekend in November, 2003.
For what it’s worth, I drew and colored "mandalas" while listening to many of the speakers. They can be viewed at http://www.creativespirit.net/learners/artgallery
I have not been part of the history of remote viewing, but instead
I was asked to present something about its potential future. Given
my previous work, my task was especially focused on how the Edgar
Cayce philosophy might approach remote viewing to apply this skill
as a tool of self-actualization.
Binoculars, telescopes, and video cameras are tools, like remote viewing,
to increase our powers of seeing. They record information not available
to the naked eye, but they do not provide the tool necessary to understand
that information, much less to process that information to hunt for
possibilities for creative interaction with that information.
To give my presentation some direct relevance, I gave a live demonstration
of what I called "face to face remote viewing." I asked
people to pair up, close their eyes and imagine having a heart connection
with each other. In this context, some participants have insights
into their partner.
I proposed that what is needed is "value added remote viewing."
Remote viewing, defined as a process, begins with relaxation, receiving
a target, and then reporting inner experience. By value added remoted
viewing, I mean to add value to the process. Besides learning how
to let the mind flow freely, as is usually accomplished by relaxation,
we need, in order to open remote viewing to the realms of wisdom,
to "raise" the mind.
I proposed that an induction for remote viewing that could be used for self—actualization would be a two-part induction, one involving first freeing the mind through relaxation and then changing the mood to one of "upliftment." What I proposed was that the free flowing breath could perform the first function, while gratitude for the gift of breath could perform the second. This method is part of the "Intuitive Heart" training that I have been developing at the Edgar Cayce Institute of Intuitive Studies.
Using this method as a preparation for value added remote viewing
is essentially, a process for "shapeshifting." That is,
it allows a person to transform one’s self-experience from that of
a localized physical being with boundaries, to that of an expanded
sense of a non-physical self of experience, with no boundaries, but
which is merged by love into empathy with all.
concluded with a hypothetical "tasking" exercise for value-added
remote viewing that would yield moments of self-actualization. The
"task" represents the target, the purpose of the remote
viewing exercise. Besides making proper preparation for remote viewing,
the purpose for remote viewing needs to be of such a nature to promote
One of the requirements for this conference was that each presentation
be accompanied by a Powerpoint slide show. For my show, I commissioned
an artist, Matthew Harrison, to create drawings to represent his experience
of the various stages of the Inspired Heart process. I also added
images of my own, from my watercolor series on the "Inspired
