I think about my students a lot. I worry about their struggles, just as I worry about my own children. I remember my own early days as a remote viewer and how lost I often felt. Often, I was carried downstream in the current of wonder and excitement about what it all means…
What does it mean to see through Time and Space?
If we can see through Time and Space -- what does that mean about Who We Are? What does that mean about how Time works? What does that mean about the nature of Reality?
I was (and still am) very curious about these things. And while learned men hypothesize the answers to these questions, we may never know for sure until we move from this life to the next, to the Great Beyond.
When you are in a dark room and you can’t see, if someone shows you the light switch, you don’t feel all condemned because you stumbled around in the dark, do you? No, of course not.
Well, life is like that. We stumble around, groping for the light switch with no idea where it is, and then we beat ourselves up for it, as though we are stupid for stumbling in the dark.
CRV is like that, too. When you first begin remote viewing, you are stumbling around in the dark. If you allow your insecurities and fears to take over, you’ll end up creating a big story, just to make yourself feel better. That is what we refer to as “Castle-Building”.
Struggling through Life and Remote Viewing
Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate the parallels between CRV and Life. We struggle to become good remote viewers, just as we struggle to be better humans. And we all want the same things -- to be comfortable, to be happy, to be loved, to feel good about ourselves.
Basic human needs drive us, just as guilt and feelings of inadequacy drive us. Perhaps if we didn’t feel guilty or inadequate occasionally, we wouldn’t even try. We all tend to feel like the last horse in the race at times. And that, rather than being a bad thing, can be motivational -- if we let it.
“Karate Kid” became a hit movie, not because of excellent cinematography or stellar acting -- but because we could all identify with the poor kid who was such a weakling, a buffoon… And then, through the tedium of continual practice, learning to “wax on, wax off” -- day after day, week after week, month after month, he became a Master in Karate. It is the typical Hero’s Journey on which we all find ourselves.
Remember when you learned to tie your shoes or ride a bike? In the beginning, it was hard. You may have wondered if you would ever get it. But once you mastered it, you never again questioned your ability to do those things, did you? They just were, and you knew you were good at them.
Think of other things you’ve learned; things you’ve struggled with and then mastered. You’ve got this! You will get good at this because you won’t give up!
Here is the key to loving your practice: Get excited about what you are learning! And eventually, you will begin to grow in confidence. You’ll begin to trust yourself more. These qualities will expand into your daily life.
As remote viewers, the most important thing is not to give up! To keep practicing! Even if you are never satisfied, don’t give up on yourself or on your practice.
I hope these words have inspired you today, and that your day will be brighter because of them. I love you and know that you -- like me -- are walking this path every day, even when it is hard. Just showing up means a lot!
I’ll be in touch soon!
P.S. We have completed filming all of the 4 videos in the 4-part Introduction to Practical Remote Viewing MasterClass that we will be debuting July 23 - 26, 2019. I sure hope you can join me when I launch those! I will be making a special offer on the last day of the Master Class -- something I have never done before. It can be scary to put your unique voice out there among the competition… But I am doing it for those among you who have been wanting to learn CRV, but just haven’t been able to take a series of 3-day workshops. I’ve heard the cry of so many, and I am answering. Much love to you!
