Mini-Conference AIPR – Sydney

I was honoured to be speaking at the AIPR (Australian Institute for Parapsychological Research) in Sydney last weekend. The program consisted of:

  • Author and UFO researcher Bill Chalker, presented his findings in the field of UFO sightings and the more recent disclosure of the US Navy regarding encounters with Unidentified Areal Phenomena (UAP’s). Bill has collected an enormous amount of information and he has a wealth of knowledge in the field. He presented a long list of cases he investigated and pointed out that certain people may know far more than they are willing to share with the public.
  • Professor Tony Mowbray presented his research of 1.000 individual accounts of haunting experiences at Port Arthur and the challenge of classifying and measuring these personal accounts. Tony invited the audience to label a particularly personal account to determine if the audience would use different or similar labels. Classifying labels I personally assigned to the described experience was: Sensory experiences, such as temperature change, touch and visual experiences as described in the case study. Emotional Impact experiences, such as instant emotional change. Physiological change, such as physical pain or discomfort. During the Q&A session, a lady shared her personal experience at Port Arthur and recommended people not to take the ghost-tours as they could have some serious consequences. In her case, the behaviour of her travel companion changed dramatically after the visit to irresponsible driving to the point they could have been killed. That is one more Tony can add to the list of over 1.000 accounts of people who have visited Port Arthur.
  • Professor Lance Storm and Robb Tilley gave an excellent presentation on the Remote Clearing of Haunted houses. Lance Storm presented the statistical analysis of the surveys measuring the quality of life for those who experienced haunting and whether or not they experienced improvement in the quality of life after the Remote Clearing of their homes. The quality of life after clearing showed significant improvement and most claimed they were no longer being haunted after the clearing. Robb Tilley explained how this Remote Clearing process worked and made an excellent point that this method is safer and, far less intrusive than exorcism traditionally used by the church, which has in at least 40 known cases, resulted in the death of the person being exorcised and, the prosecution of the exorcist for murder.

Last on the list was my presentation on the science and applications of Remote Viewing. I was amazed by the amount of interest there was for the topic of Remote Viewing. After a brief introduction of some of my personal experiences with spontaneous Extrasensory Perception and Lucid Dreaming, I explained the difference between a natural Psychic and a Remote Viewer. I ran a thought experiment, whereby I took the audience on a journey of perception as if they were a Remote Viewer. What the audience didn’t know at the time was that this was an actual Remote Viewing Session that I was tasked with, by someone in contact with the FBI. I demonstrated the challenges of Remote Viewing a real case for Law Enforcement and also how the information can help solve a case. I highlighted the importance of feedback and factual evidence and also why using the scientific approach is incredibly valuable. This was followed by some basic rules when working on Law Enforcement cases, such as legal issues and health and safety issues, which need to be taken into account when working these types of cases. The audience had some excellent questions about the work ethics of Remote Viewers. Although can only speak for myself; I gave an example of how it is possible to locate a person, using a Private Investigator who investigates the information provided by Remote Viewers and how this protects the person’s identity by law, in case the person does not want to be found by the person who is looking for them. Another great question was regarding setting Remote Viewing tasks for oneself. The process for this would have taken too long to explain and this is part of the intensive Remote Viewing training program.

Then there was a short break. I was approached by several people with questions and for book signing, I apologised because I really needed some water and fresh air before diving into the next part of the talk. It was quite warm in the room and the air conditioning would make too much noise on the audio part of the video recording. I promised there would be some time after the second part.

During the break information was presented on the launch on a new documentary by Dr. Tony Jinks and Mr Attila Kaldy on the Australian Big Foot, also known as the Yowie. We had the privilege of attending the launch of this documentary the night before in “The Powerhouse” in Sydney. The documentary showed various interesting features in the area the Yowie had been sighted and many accounts of people who describe a similar creature or hearing unusual sounds in this area. It remains a challenge to obtain physical evidence of this elusive creature, which has been mentioned in the traditional stories of the Aboriginal communities for thousands of years.

The second part of my presentation consisted of a very brief overview of the history and science of Remote Viewing and a Mini-Workshop of less than 30 minutes. I explained that this is by no means the full training! I presented the fact that it is based on perception and communication and, how the descriptions are often correct perceptions, but the labels we tend to give these descriptions often tend to be incorrect. These labels are based on our memories. I also pointed out that the mind is like a two-way radio; You cannot talk and listen at the same time! Similarly, you cannot think and perceive at the same time. The process is undulating or alternating thinking and perceiving. However, it is not guessing! So the specific thinking question should be:”What am I perceiving?” rather than “What is the target?”. The history of the Ideogram was briefly explained and how that was developed.

The audience was invited to participate in a double-blind experiment. ProjectX a program designed for Remote Viewing practice and research purposes generates a random number and, assigns this to a target. This means that no one in the room knows what the target is!

I asked the audience what they picked up on: Land, water, mountain, structure, life form or energy. The majority vote was water. Once the data was entered, the feedback was shown. It was the Enigma Machine to send encoded messages during WWII, which at the time the photo was taken, was part of the exhibition at the Imperial War Museum in London. The descriptions called out by the audience were off target. That was to be expected, this a less than a 30-minute workshop! However, after the workshop, several people approached me with their sketches and accurate descriptions of the target. One person actually, had a very clear sketch of the old-style circular “type-writer” key with the letter “G” and another person sketched the layers of these keys. It was a shame those people didn’t speak up during the mini-workshop, but I know all too well how it feels to hit the target and be totally speechless!

After the workshop, many people lined up to speak with me. We were actually running a bit over time and the crew started to take the chairs away to pack up. Still, people waited around to speak with me. One after another shared their stories, asked me questions or, wanted their book signed. It was a great pleasure to hear that people really enjoyed the talk and the mini-workshop. Many stated that they actually learned something from it. I met so many people in such a short period of time, which was a bit overwhelming (especially for generally introverted me), but at the same time, it was wonderful to see the interest in something I have studied and practised for so many years!

Lance Storm, Robb Tilley, the committee members and the film crew have done an amazing job! I am so grateful for the opportunity to share the Remote Viewing experience with other interested people, right here in Australia!

The videos of the speakers are expected to be available late December or early January on the website. Photo courtesy of all photos in this post: Joyce Bok.

Testing and Developing Your Extrasensory Perception

Not many people even consider the possibility they have Extrasensory Perception, yet most people do have the ability! They might have had some spontaneous experiences and described it as a “gut feeling” or coincidence and never give it a second thought.

As a Remote Viewing Trainer, I found that most students have the ESP ability. Although not everyone is a natural super talent, most people will improve with practice when they recognize the feelings associated with Extrasensory Perception. As with any skill, how each individual develops their skills depends greatly on their mindset, their ambition, their time spent on practice, their ability to recognize their own feelings, perceptions and emotions and their ability to accurately express their perception.

If you compare it to the game of golf: Almost anyone can learn to play golf, but not everyone will reach the level of a professional golfer. The professionals play and practice almost every day! They learn the science behind their swing, they learn to get a feel for the right posture, the right grip and even the right relaxed, focused mindset. When they have learned all they can about the best posture, best grip, best swing and the best tools to use, it comes down to their mindset and their time spent learning to get a feel for it. Nobody can teach them that! They will have to teach themselves. They need to deal with performance anxiety and crowds watching them in nerve-wrecking moments. They will need to zone in on their goal and become one smooth functioning unit. Until ultimately their mind and body get “In the zone”. They don’t need to calculate wind speed, angle of the green, the curve of the ball. Their experience tells them exactly what to do in order to get the ball where it needs to be. They have reached unconscious competence, but only after an enormous amount of practice their subconscious mind recognizes what it needs to do in order to achieve the result!

Experience and Understanding

I was reading Joe McMoneagle’s book “Memoirs of a Psychic Spy”. He recounted a story of going to Stanford Research Institute under the name of “Scotty Watt”. At SRI, scientist Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ conducted a Remote Viewing “Outbounder” experiment, in which Joe participated as a Remote Viewer and he was very successful.

An “Outbounder” experiment (and all Remote Viewing) is conducted under strict scientific protocols. Several opaque envelopes are filled with the names of different locations within a area large enough to reach within an hours drive from the laboratory. These envelopes are shuffled and numbered on the outside, then placed in a safe where only one person not participating in the experiment has access to the safe. A random number generator, will select a number and, on the day of the experiment, the person with access to the safe will collect only that particular envelope from the safe and pass it to the person heading out, in this case Hal Puthoff. In an electrically shielded room, researcher Russell Targ and Joe McMoneagle were preparing for a Remote Viewing session. After an hour or so the session began and Joe was asked to sketch and describe where he perceived Hal to be at that time. Hal at the time would take photographs of his location and they would later drive Joe to the location where Hal had been. His sketches and descriptions were a match.

When Joe was later assigned to the covert military project and asked to do similar “Outbounder” experiments, he missed every single target, 25 times in a row! Joe was disappointed and about to give up, but the encouragement and support of his friends and army buddies kept him going. He knew it was somehow possible, because he had done it before, yet nobody could tell him exactly how he should do this. They could tell him the protocols and the consistent procedures to follow and why these were imperative, but there were no instructions as to; “how to switch your mind to ESP mode”. When he finally hit the target, he recognized there was something different about these particular perceptions. Joe mentioned in his book, something “clicked” mentally and his Remote Viewing started to improve dramatically.

This very subtle recognition of the difference between your imagination and actual contact with, and perception of the target, is an internal process. It is an “A-ha moment”. How do you know when you reached that moment? When you no longer need to ask that question!

Find the Missing Person

“Can you find missing persons?” This is a question I get asked over and over again. The answer is:” Remote Viewers do not find missing persons. Search and rescue teams and law enforcement agencies find missing persons.

A Remote Viewer simply provides information on where a person might be, to law enforcement or search and rescue teams. This information can assist the investigators in locating the person.

Information Accuracy

The information perceived by means of Remote Viewing is no different to that of an eye-witness, who has just been blind folded and dropped into a location.

Imagine Google maps, where you can drop this “little man” on almost any location on earth and have a “street view”. If you suddenly get dropped into a scene like that, without the street names projected over the map, could you tell me exactly where you are?

Have a look at the snapshot below. Would it be reasonable for me to ask you for an address, a town, a state or country? I think you can agree the answer would be: “No.” This place could be just about anywhere in the world! It doesn’t matter if you are suddenly dropped right in front of it or if you perceived it suddenly via extrasensory perception, if you don’t live there you probably wouldn’t know the address or how to get there. Even the entire local law enforcement division may not recognize this place because it is very non-descriptive. (This snapshot is an actual location very close to where a homicide victim and missing person was found.)

An experienced Remote Viewer knows that, even if you are spot on, this kind of information is practically useless to the search and rescue teams and you will need to look for other indicators. The target cue or question may have been:”Describe the location of {missing person’s name}.” In this case, that would be a “field, farm land, structure nearby, nothing but fields and long straight road!” Although it looks like this missing person is NOT in the ocean, in a city, a big lake, inside a house or shopping mall, “in a field” is pretty much still looking for a needle in a haystack!

What would you do? If you report this to police, it will end up in the too hard basket, even if you are correct! So you will have to find something more useful. How did this missing person end up in this field?

Suddenly your “little Google man” drops into someone’s car, who is driving at night. This person seems agitated, nervous, angry, perspiring and “hyper” like he had 20 cups of coffee! You are sitting in the passenger’s seat right next to this person, but you don’t know how you got to be in a driving car. Who is this guy? Where am I? Why is he so agitated and nervous?

You are driving past a fuel station and in the dark you see a sign of a star-logo, something red and white like a “TEXACO” logo, or similar. You see some lights flashing by as if you are going past street lights. You get the overwhelming smell of stinky socks! It is like this guy has been running a marathon. You are on a long straight road in the dark and the headlights just light up edges of fields. Who is this guy? Is there anything in the car that could identify him? You spot a card sticking out of a dashboard compartment, something with the word “ember”, when you look closely it says “Membership”. This may or may not be something identifiable but you notice a particular logo.

Your attention is drawn to the thing he is nervous about. He is hiding something, enclosed, encased and it is moving. It is actually moving at the same speed as we are. This could be the boot of the car and you perceive a flash of something dark red. Then you get a “claustrophobic” feeling. You want to get out of this enclosed space, but you can’t move. Is this guy hiding someone in the boot of his car? Is this someone struggling to get out?

You are still in the passenger seat, watching this guy driving in the dark and you pass by some orange flashing lights, like the ones in road works. There are no particular road signs you can see. But you now have some more useful information. You can at least sketch the guy who was hiding something or more likely someone in the back of this car.

  • the missing person is in a field (hard to find and non-descript)
  • a guy with tanned skin, dark hair, dark brown eyes, mustache and some facial hair (South American looking) was nervous, agitated, angry
  • he has sweaty socks and it seems he has been running a marathon before getting into the car
  • this guy transported someone in the boot of the vehicle
  • to get to the field he drove past a fuel station and a sign similar to the Texaco star
  • after that he drove past road works, with orange flashing lights
  • he has a membership card in the car that looks like possibly a gym membership

You submit this information and the sketches of what you perceived.

A couple of days later, you receive news that a man fitting the exact description has been taken into custody and led police to the body of the missing person in a field. He had chatted with the missing person, whilst running and his vehicle was recorded on CCTV. To get to the location of the field he had to drive past an intersection with a fuel station and a bit further down there was a sign similar to the Texaco logo of a business named “Lone Star”. He also had to drive past a road block sign for road works. This indeed happened at night in the dark.

After notes

Hearing this, you now start shaking like a leaf! What the ….!! You were in the car with this guy while he was driving with the missing person in the boot! The eerie feeling is indescribable! You break down in tears, because although as a remote viewer you can have the feeling you are “there”, while physically you are thousands of miles away. There is nothing you could have done. Yet, it appears to have helped the investigation and the family and friends can now finally have closure.

This is how Remote Viewing can assist in finding missing persons. With enough training, practice and a background in investigations almost anyone can do it. But it is not easy!!

7 Steps to Becoming a Remote Viewer

Step 1 : Read up on Remote Viewing. Find reputable sources and start delving into the subject matter. You will find that there is a great difference between being a psychic and being a remote viewer! You will get an understanding on how it was developed, why it was developed into a skill and how they were able to successfully use remote viewing in a practical sense. A good start is:

  • Remote Viewing: The Complete User’s Manual for Coordinate Remote Viewing” by David Morehouse
  • Mind Trek” by Joseph McMoneagle
  • Seventh Sense” by Lyn Buchanan
  • The Essential Guide to Remote Viewing” by Paul Smith
  • Tactical Remote Viewing” by Angela Thompson-Smith

This is only a very small selection of books, to get you started with your research. There is an incredible amount of information out there, once you start looking, you will find it.

Step 2 : Do your research on the various branches of Remote Viewing! The originally developed training was named “Coordinate Remote Viewing / Extended Remote Viewing” and a bit later Coordinate was renamed “Controlled Remote Viewing”. In essence these two are the same, with only slight differences in the terminology used. Anyone who has learned “Coordinate Remote Viewing”, can follow the “Controlled Remote Viewing” structure and procedures and vice-versa. However, there are many style derivatives from the original training, like Technical Remote Viewing, Trans-Dimensional Systems, HRVG and the list goes on.

Then… there is Associative Remote Viewing, which is a shorter version based on CRV, but is primarily used for predicting outcomes of closed questions. Something like: “Is my team going to win this round this Saturday?” or, “This coming Friday is the stock market going to close higher or lower than today?” If you want to know more about ARV; you should definitely look at: Because ARV is based on CRV, it is best to begin with CRV.

Step 3 : Select a knowledgeable, qualified trainer! It’s not important who you choose as a trainer, but certainly do your research before you select one. Ask questions such as:

  • How long have you been Remote Viewing?
  • Who did you do your training with?
  • What are some of your personal success stories?
  • Can you show me examples?
  • Do you have any testimonials or people I can call?
  • How do you work?
  • If I am a client wanting you to find something for me, how would I go about that?
  • Are there any prerequisites for entering your course?

And check their credentials. If they cannot answer these questions clearly, you are probably not dealing with an experienced Remote Viewing trainer.

Step 4 : Select the trainer who is right for you! It doesn’t matter if you do a face-to-face or an online course, but you are going to be interacting with this person for several days at least, and preferably much longer than that after your training. If you’re not comfortable with your trainer, your not going to take the information on board.

Step 5 : What do you get for the price you pay? Ask for a lesson plan or overview of what is included in the training. What materials do you get? Is lunch included? Is there support available after the training? Are you going to get a certificate or statement of attainment?

Step 6 : Start training! If you can’t attend a multi-day training course, take a Remote Viewing Training course online! It may be a bit more challenging, because you have less interaction with the trainer and other students in some cases, but it can be done!

Step 7 : Practice, practice and practice some more. Put your skills to the test! Keep track of how your individual mind works. It’s almost like a “meditation”, when you become aware of your internal chatter, subtle impressions and and things you never realised were possible. Nobody can teach you that part! You can only learn by doing and noticing your own mental processes and observations. A system especially designed to help remote viewers practice after their training is:

This step 7 will not end, but after a while you will have a good understanding of your your abilities, your performance and how your individual mind processes the information. Now you have built an evidence portfolio on ProjectX and you can prove your skills to others. This will help you be accepted into groups who work on operational targets and projects.
Most groups will also allow you to task others, so you will remain blind to the target and still have your personal questions answered by other qualified Remote Viewers.

Intelligence Report: Can Remote Viewers Locate Missing Aircraft ?

The most notable time Remote Viewers have been of assistance was in 1979 when a Soviet Tu-22 bomber, outfitted as a reconnaissance aircraft was lost in Zaire. The location of the aircraft was pinpointed on a map by a remote viewer, while other means of intelligence had failed, because the wreckage was obscured from sight by a thick jungle canopy and satellite imagery was of little use. The case became a famous part of history because President Jimmy Carter later admitted publicly to the plane being located by means of Remote Viewing.

Missing Grumman Duck

During World War II a US Coast Guard rescue plane went missing over Greenland. Its crew went out to rescue another crew of a B-17 Bomber that had crashed on the remote icy terrain in Greenland. This rescue plane was a Grumman J2F4 Duck, which can land on both land and water. The team consisting of pilot John Pritchard and radioman Benjamin Bottoms, managed to rescue some of the B-17 crew. After they went out a second time, on another rescue attempt, they managed to take one person on board, they took off and made radio contact, after which they disappeared in bad weather. This plane, the crew and their passenger have never been found.

Reports of Duck Being Found

There are several online sources that report the Grumman Duck and the missing service men have been located. However, these reports have been jumping to conclusions and substantial evidence is yet to be found.

After years of researching maps and historical accounts, making calculations of glacial movements, the rescue teams have narrowed down the search area. There has been a hopeful indication in one particular spot where the team melted several holes in the ice and used a camera to see what was embedded in the ice. Of the 10 holes they created, 1 showed a possible sign of cabling that could be consistent with cables used on the Grumman Duck. It is understandable that this possible cable was an exciting glimmer of hope after 10 years of actively searching for this aircraft and its crew. However, the plane is still missing and the search and rescue mission is not over!

Remote Viewing Mission

An aviation history enthusiast and supporter of the search and rescue mission, asked if Remote Viewing could help locate the Duck. The Remote Viewing team was to attempt to sketch and describe the current location of the missing Grumman Duck J2F in Greenland. They were given only two sets of four random digit numbers that were associated with this task. Their directive: Sketch and describe the target at the current location. Four people from around the world, who had no idea what it was they were looking for, and yet they managed to produce a lot of valuable information. This could be a missing person, a car, a stolen artwork, lost papers, or even a UFO! The Remote Viewing Team presented some astonishing information.

This is what their finding were:
