Remote viewing (RV) is the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using subjective means, in particular, extra-sensory perception (ESP) or “sensing with mind”. While ancient texts and shamanic traditions have emphasized this ability for thousands of years, it is only in the last century that modern science began to take it seriously. Since the 1970’s researchers such as Russell Targ (video) have published data that corroborates perceiving information in non-local ways. In the 1990’s it was popularized with books about US military experiments called “The Stargate Project.”
SuperConsciousness Magazine wrote: “It has been successfully used by the US military and other intelligence agencies of various governments. Several groups of people have made significant amounts of money by applying this skill in the prediction of market fluctuations and so on. Remote-viewing training has even become a growing industry. There are dozens of training organizations in addition to books, DVDs, seminars, and retreat facilities that feature and/or include remote-viewing in their curriculum.”
One of the best websites for information, and for practicing your own skills at remote viewing, is The International Remote Viewing Association. A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use and development of remote viewing, IRVA is an independently formed member organization of scientists, remote viewing professionals, students, and other interested persons. Their President Emeritus is Russell Targ.
From their website we read: “Remote viewing has now taken a long step into the public domain with the formation of a professional association to educate, research, propose standards, test performance, and promote public awareness of this unique human mental capacity.”
