About Psychic Abilities and Power
We are all psychic but to varying degrees. Even psychic skills face logical limitations; some people are just more sensitive, sensitive in different ways, and more talented than others. Everyone can run, but some people run faster, longer, and with more grace than others. With training, you can improve and maximize the psychic skills you have, just like improving your speed, endurance, and grace as a runner.
Sometimes psychic gifts remain dormant until a specific trigger moment, like a near-death experience, or they are unlocked through concentrated efforts at meditation and mindfulness work. There is also a wide range of talents, from simple intuition to channeling other entities. This section of the Ask Astrology website explores and explains the psychic skill of remote viewing.
What is Remote Viewing?
Remote viewing, also known as remote sensing, remote perception, telesthesia, and travelling clairvoyance (Wikipedia) is the psychic skill to perceive a remote or hidden target without the support of the natural senses. A remote viewer can be in one location of the world and see or sense another location to know what is happening at that location in real-time.
Learning to Remote View
Remote viewing is a clairvoyant skill, which is very rare, so learning it is not available in the way learning lucid dreaming can be learned. You can test to determine in you can remote view by simply focusing on a place with the intent to see what is going on there in real-time, then you can check the news of the location for that day and note if anything you saw happened.
Remote viewing is one of the easier psychic skills to determine if you can or cannot do it. Either you saw something, and it can be verified by another source as both happening and happening at the time you saw, or not. Since remote viewing is a psychic skill, a limitation of distance is only in the mind. If you can remote view across the street, you can remote view across the world.
Private Investigation and Remote Viewing
It is not hard to guess that remote viewing is largely a skill for peering into the lives and actions of other people for the benefit or gain of the remote viewer or the person working with a remote viewer. Most likely the common reason for trying to remote view or hiring a remote viewer is to privately investigate a situation or person.
If you decide to use remote viewing to determine the actions of someone else and the view does indicate some kind of action of concern, then you would want to switch to traditional private investigation to gather acceptable evidence for action with a lawyer or in court.
Remote Viewing versus Astral Travel
Perhaps you would like to visit parts of the world and do not have the financial means to do so. You could work to develop the ability to astral project in order to astral travel to a location of interest.
Astral travel involves disengaging your etheric self from your physical self so you can travel untethered from your body’s limitations (i.e., no meals, luggage, or restrictions for visiting a museum or seeing the sites). However, if you do not want to travel to the location in any way, then you can remote view from the comfort of your chair or bed.
Remote Viewing and Military Application
Perhaps no governmental agency other than the military would have as much to gain from successful experiments and uses of remote viewing. Efforts have been made to test and use remote viewing as a tool for military applications. Failure to work would be public knowledge, but success would be classified. However, it is worth noting that funding has existed and probably still exists to use or determine if remote viewing can be applied to give a state a military advantage.
Who to Work With?
If you want to work with someone who has this skill, then it is best to seek out practitioners who, when vetted thoroughly, will be able to show you their skill and professionalism.
No matter what service you seek, a mechanic or psychic, it is always a wise policy to look at their business practice, testimonials, and credentials (both ones from an institution and based on their life experience). Talent can appear very early on, but using the talent wisely requires other life skills and maturity.
If you think or know you have the ability and want to develop it, look for accomplished practitioners who are also willing to teach. High-quality people exist in all professions and they all share similar traits in the way they present themselves to the public and develop their success.
