Seminar: Topic: Remote Viewing Series – Part 1 -Saturday, 1 September 2018 at 6:30pm/1830hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Rainsong — Search LECTURE38
Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to another psionics seminar here at the social club.
Rainsong: Our topic for the evening is remote viewing, and specifically, one of the sets of military protocols.
Rainsong: This is the first in what is meant to be a series, once or twice a month for the autumn/winter season.
Rainsong: Although you’ll see the term bandied about to refer to clairvoyance generally, I’m using it in the stricter sense:
Rainsong: It’s the _use_ of psychic abilities to obtain data, yes, but within a set of “protocols” which can be described simply as a prescribed procedure. Much of the procedure is there to allow for the fact that nobody’s psychic perception is 100% accurate, and, worse, the conscious mind likes to take over and “imagine” stuff in an attempt to fill in gaps in the data, and to impress people, and to maintain its own self-image, and so on.
Rainsong: We’ll be getting into much, _much_ more detail on the issue of Protocol as we proceed through the series of classes.
Rainsong: Questions or commentary so far?
Flux: I’ve heard/read that the particular method of data retrieval isn’t too important. True?
Flux: Besides it being psychic that is.
Rainsong: That’s basically true, yes.
Rainsong: Strictly speaking, there’s nothing requiring the data method to be “psychic”, if a person happens to separate psychic stuff from, for example, a Strega’s methods of scrying.
Scelana: Does the one doing the rv viewing have to go view only by themselves or can they have another being be the one looking in the area for them and sending all they see livefeed to them via telepathy etc?
Rainsong: We’ll be discussing Outbounding briefly in passing. Getting the data telepathically from someone else’s point of view – regardless of the nature or species of the someone – is acceptable.
ceahhettan: Evening folks. I’m a little late, ah well.
Rainsong: Doing so exclusively will, however, both colour your data because of the somebody’s own mental filters, and possibly cause some confusion in staying in “structure” (which, again, we’ll go into in more detail).
Rainsong: Hi, Ceah.
Rainsong: We started late, in any case. Not much to scroll back over. Take a moment, and let me know if you have any questions or comments so far.
Scelana: Ahh that makes sense
ceahhettan: None from me. Remote viewing has never been my strong point, I’m bad at doing things on purpose. :p
Flux: My own personal experiences would suggest that I am okay at it. Given that the average person is terrible, I am like a hairs breath better.
Rainsong: It’s not my forte, either, but I know _how_ to do it.
Flux: Anyone here got the talent for it?
Rainsong: There are several people in the community with considerable skill in and talent for it.
Rainsong: Wayfarer, for example. And he’ll be co-teaching from time to time, as his schedule allows.
Rainsong: Some of you will have seen me brag about his results before. An example I often bring up – and I wish we still had the data sheets for – was actually a miss.
Rainsong: The practice target was a photo of a woman rowing on the Rideau Canal.
Rainsong: What he came up with was a usable map of that part of Ottawa.
Flux: That’s pretty amazing.
Rainsong: It should be noted that most people have certain _types_ of targets they are better at.
Rainsong: Some people do better with buildings and other manmade structures, for example.
Rainsong: Some people do better with people, per se.
Rainsong: Some get more data about what’s happening, than who’s doing it or where.
Rainsong: The kind of remote viewing protocols we’ll be doing here are the literally professional-military-grade stuff.
Rainsong: As such, it was developed for intelligence work in a military context.
ceahhettan: I mean, the number of times Wayfarer has found my keys– from the entire other side of the country– is beyond counting at this point in time.
Rainsong: So, as you can imagine, it was (cough cough yes, of _course_ we believe it was discontinued…cough cough) common practice to have several operatives “looking at” different parts of a target, depending on where their individual strengths lay.
Flux: Oh, that’s suppose to be hard using RV!
Rainsong: Yea, but remember, the Ottawa incident was when he _missed_
Flux: I heard it was mostly contract work these days.
Flux: That’s pretty impressive.
Flux: I should read his book.
Rainsong: This course is going to combine history with how-to-do stuff. If folks are interested in RV, as opposed to just “Hmm, what’s on the schedule this week? Alright, RV it is”, we’ll also do practice sessions during the classes… which, if past series are any indication, will run beyond an hour most times.
Flux: I’d love to do some practice sessions!
Flux: I’ve never gotten to do RV with another person. Thus, I haven’t really done it.
Rainsong: Monitoring over text chat is not ideal, but it can be done… we’ve done it before.
Rainsong: And I have a huge library of practice targets
Flux: I’d love to give it a go, text or not. I can do VC, but I don’t know if that’s practical.
ceahhettan: I’ve got some time tonight, I’ll stick around for practise.
Rainsong: You’ll need either A4 or letter-size sheets of white paper – copy paper such as is used in a printer or typewriter is perfect.
Rainsong: You’ll need pens with black ink
Flux: I got some.
Flux: That too.
Rainsong: A comfy place to sit, and a flat desk-like surface to put the paper on.
ceahhettan: I’ve only got lined paper, but it’ll have to do.
ceahhettan: I suppose using a drawing app on my iPad with the apple pencil would be a little too far outside of protocol.
Rainsong: (Do you have some kind of lapdesk or side table or something to use?)
Rainsong: As long as you recognise that you’re changing the protocol, it’s worth a try.
ceahhettan: (I’ve got a pull out desk surface in the truck.)
ceahhettan: I’ll probably use lined paper, same caveat.
ceahhettan: I’ve got tonnes of it, no printer paper and I think my partner wants the iPad for games.
Rainsong: nods Again, not ideal, but worth a try.
Rainsong: This is probably a logical place to wind down this very preliminary introduction…
Rainsong: Are there any further questions or comments?
Flux: Not from me.
ceahhettan: None from me.
Rainsong: Alright, unless there is a firm preference for rearranging this month’s class schedule, the next RV class is at the end of the month, and we have a PK class next week.
Rainsong: (Schedule is in Rules/Announcements)
ceahhettan: Nope, I’m good.
ceahhettan: I never know if I’m going to make it until that day.
Flux: Sounds good to me.
Rainsong: Alright, excellent.
Rainsong: Thanks for participating, everyone.
Flux: Thanks for the lecture.
ceahhettan: Same. It’s fun to get to participate every so often.
ceahhettan: I at least managed to find a black pen.
Rainsong: Good stuff.
Rainsong: I confess, I’ve used multi-coloured felt-tip markers, on various kinds of paper… but we’ll try to follow protocol as closely as possible.
ceahhettan: Possible that the intent of how much one adheres affects results?
Scelana: Sorry for my sudden disappearance there, hubby wanted to know what I wanted to eat.
Thxies for the lecture Rainsong!
Rainsong: Not to worry. And you’re welcome 😀
Rainsong: Ceah: It’s believed that the “black ink and white paper” signals a seriousness and purpose to the subconscious. And, as any ritual, it helps get you in the right frame of mind for the work.
ceahhettan: Hm, fair enough. I think my subconscious will understand the limitations of over the road.
Rainsong: I’d expect so.
Scelana: That’s interesting, so would other writing methods consider as their use for serious or important stuff be factors as well? Like for example using a type writer instead of a pen?
I had to use a typewriter in high school for papers and tests I would be graded on cause my handwriting was atrocious because of my graphlexia. Got a doctor note for being able to use it for even written only papers. Just curious
Rainsong: It would be practically impossible to do this with a typewriter
Rainsong: It’s normal for the handwriting parts to be misspelled and messy.
Scelana: Messy is an understatement with me
Rainsong: If you fear it will be completely unintelligible to you, when you go back over written bits – the procedure has several stages – parts of it can be voice-recorded, if needed. That can be tricky, when working without an assistant in the room, but can be done.
Scelana: I see
Rainsong: Then the recording is transcribed… itself not an easy task. But still, it’s an option.
Scelana: I’d be able to read it myself, just likely no one else can read it lol
Rainsong: In that case, I’d suggest writing, at least for the first several months.
Archaeus: Is remote viewing similar to astral projection?
Rainsong: There is a protocol that uses astral projection.. or rather, which _can_ use astral projection.
ceahhettan: Actually, I do have a half a question. Or at least a thought. I’m wondering how the protocol will play with my hypergraphia? It should be interesting!
Rainsong: It isn’t the one we’ll be focusing on, but it will come up in the history sections.
Rainsong: Ceah: It’s actually unlikely to be a problem. Might even be an advantage
Archaeus: I can do astral projection very consistently so if I struggle with the first protocol. Do you mind sending me the second?
Rainsong: No problem at all, Archaeus.
Rainsong: Remind me, when the time comes.
Flux: Kind of jealous. I can exit maybe one out of 10 attempts at the moment. And sometimes it just happens when I’m meditating, and I’m like, not now!
Rainsong: Rather than “sending it” as such, we’ll include it in the seminars.
Archaeus: Much appreciated!
Rainsong: You’re very welcome.
Scelana: What skills does the standard rv protocol use?
Rainsong: Flux: What approach are you using?
ceahhettan: Rainsong: Because hypergraphia is close to the sort of automatic writing (closest word I can think of)?
Rainsong: Ceah: yea
Flux: When I’m doing it consciously, I go back and forth between the method you taught and something more Robert Bruce-y.
Rainsong: Scelana: Which skills? Psychic perception, jotting stuff down, being able to get out of your own way (the hard part… and a big part of the protocols), sketching (but that’s later in the process)
Rainsong: .. and being able to follow potentially boring instructions without improvising too much… 😉
Flux: When I’m meditating, well it just happens. Sometimes I find myself in the floor of my room, or at other time I can see through my eyelids and sleep mask with my arms all floaty.
Rainsong: Flux: Mr Bruce’s methods work well, but they can take a surprisingly long time to master. Don’t worry if it isn’t working consistently yet.
Flux: I will try to remember. Most days I’m less frustrated. Should compare myself to my past self.
Rainsong: If you’re getting it to work one time in ten, roughly, you’re doing better than the majority of people trying it for their first year or two… and better than many at five years.
Rainsong: I’m not kidding when I say it takes practice and time.
