Don't mistake remote viewing as being the same as an out-of-body experience. Astral travel, or out-of-body experience, is where you travel incorporeally in spirit form to view a place or an event.
You can think of remote viewing as a sort of dowsing where your psychic abilities are used to find what you want to look for. Remote viewing involves using extra sensory perception to find and view what you're looking for.
All humans have a form of latent psychic ability that was never developed fully when we were young. Considering that most of us only ever use around 10% of our brain's capacity, there's another 90% of dormant brainpower left untapped and untrained that we aren't quite sure what to do with.
Remote viewing can let you check up on your children to make sure that they're safe when you can't be right there with them. You can increase your security and gain peace of mind by using your latent powers of remote viewing.
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.
To start training yourself in remote viewing abilities, these techniques are helpful:
*Always practice your remote viewing in a quiet place where you'll be free from distractions and where you can sit comfortably. Close your eyes and start relaxing your body before trying to remote view.
*Take deep breaths through the nose. You can get better control over your breathing by holding your tongue at the roof of your mouth. This will also suppress yawns as you relax deeply.
*Believe in yourself and your remote viewing abilities. You need to tell yourself that you can and will be able to remotely view things which your senses would not let you normally perceive.
*Begin with a simple remote viewing target to show your mind that you are capable of achieving this kind of psychic seeking. Perhaps begin by viewing yourself from a place in front of you, as though you were looking back at your relaxed body as you sit there through a mirror. It can be a little difficult at first to allow your mind to view yourself from an opposite perspective, but be patient. When you do see yourself from the angle that others see you, you'll be in for a wonderful surprise.
*Once you're able to see yourself while remote viewing, you need to begin looking at places which are farther away. Start with a place which you are already familiar with, such as the house where you grew up. Best of all is to remote view a friend or relative's home. Keep an eye out for details and when you're finished remote viewing, call and compare notes; find out if the details you saw while remote viewing are really there. This exercise lets you assess your progress as a remote viewer.
You can then progress to more advanced exercises. Have a friend sit at their home or in another room in your home and ask them to perform a simple movement while you try to see what they're doing through your remote viewing abilities. Ask your friend afterwards to see if you have been able to get an accurate picture; again, reinforcement is valuable when you're trying to learn to remote view.
With practice and patience, your ability to remote view will steadily improve and it will become ever easier for you to achieve the trance state needed for remote viewing. Much like a hypnotic state, your body will be completely relaxed, but you will still be aware and your subconscious will be able to start working towards its potential.
It is in the subconscious that our psychic abilities are found; but with practice, remote viewing will be something you'll be able to do at will.
