Want to find out if your partner is cheating? Or what people say about you behind your back? How about visiting area 51? Or a quick jaunt to the moon to confirm or deny the secret alien base hypothesis? Remote viewing advocates claim the practice allows them to do all this and much more. Many claim remote viewing is real. However, others dismiss it as total fantasy. One group that took it seriously enough to spend tens of millions on training psychic spies how to remote view was the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). As a result, in 1978, at Fort Meade, Maryland, the DIA assembled a team of intelligence operatives and civilians with reported psychic abilities. The CIA remote viewing initiative was named Project Stargate.
Project Stargate was a covert research program created to give the US an advantage over the Russians during the Cold War. Two decades and tens of millions of dollars later, Project Stargate ground to a halt (apparently.) Depending on who you believe, the results ranged from incredible to incredulous. The official CIA line stated the investigation returned zero reliable intelligence. In contrast, claims from Stargate insiders and psychic spies paint a very different picture. Remote viewers insisted the CIA remote viewing project worked a treat. For example, the wildest tales included:
- Searching for a Soviet jet that crashed with nukes on board.
- tracking the movements of suspected double agents.
- Locating hostages held by Italy’s Red Brigade.
- Locating victims of the Israeli/Iran hostage crisis.
- Visiting Mars.
The CIA remote viewing manual describes a cross between astral projection, lucid dreaming, and a voluntary out-of-body experience. Essentially, remote viewing is about entering a state of meditative clairvoyance to retrieve real-time information about a distant location or target. Using intent as a map and the ‘astral body,’ or ‘soul’ as a vehicle, travelers claim they’re able to explore any location they desire. Consequently, they claim to be able to view otherwise impossible things.
Google the phrase “How do I remote view,” and the first result to appear will likely be the leaked CIA account of Project Stargate. The CIA remote viewing manual is a step-by-step account of their psychic spying program. It includes military objectives, applications, key terms, and detailed remote viewing procedures. If you’re pushed for time, here’s the takeaway.
The CIA remote viewing manual breaks the process into four parts:
1. Remote Viewing Target Selection
To begin, the assistant preselects an image of a geographical location. Crucially, they must ensure the image remains unknown to the viewer. Meanwhile, the CIA would send an operative or ‘beacon’ to the target location. The remote viewer would then attempt to observe their presence and describe their actions. If you wish to do this, then unless you have CIA resources, it’s probably best to keep your targets local
2. Remote Viewing Preparation
This is the time to quiet your mind and filter out mental chatter. The idea is to fall into the ‘altered state’ needed for the ‘astral body’ to strap on its wings. The CIA gave their psychic spies waterbeds and relaxation tapes to enhance this process.
After confirming their readiness to the assistant, the viewer sets off. When they feel they’ve arrived, the viewer begins by describing primary impressions of the location, event, or person to the assistant. Firstly, the viewer attempts to describe faint outlines and features, such as environment and terrain. Secondly, the viewer tries more specific descriptions. Is the site natural or artificial? Is it near a body of water? Viewers are encouraged to record sensory information or ‘dimensionals.’ For example, sizes, shapes, smells, tastes, and temperatures.
Above all, remote viewing veterans insist on the importance of trusting one’s instincts. Likewise, they warn that second-guessing oneself and the images that appear in the mind’s eye will lead to distortion.
4. Remote Viewing Feedback
Subsequently, the viewer relates their experience to the assistant. The assistant then cross-references the remotely gathered data against factual, real-world information. If there was a ‘beacon’ assisting in the outside world, a discussion will follow. After that, you’ll discover whether the experiment was just a fun way to pass the time. Or, whether you have genuine psychic abilities.
The remote viewing community insists the practice requires active psychic abilities, whatever that means. Moreover, they insist that these skills can be developed with motivation, patience, and perseverance. Echoing teachings from Buddhism, the idea is that the unconscious mind already knows everything about the target object. Usually, the contents of the unconscious mind rarely show themselves. However, during meditation, the unconscious mind can better communicate this information to the conscious mind.
Somewhere quiet and comfortable with some willing friends.
Remember what curiosity did to the cat?
If exploring our inner space indeed results in adventures in outer space, well, that’s just a bonus. However, practicing remote viewing procedures has other benefits. For example, a critical aspect of remote viewing is to avoid second-guessing yourself. Conrad Hilton, George Soros, Thomas Edison, and other famous business entrepreneurs have attributed their success to this ability.
