Just all of us have strengths and weaknesses in life, remote viewers tend to exhibit a variety of strengths and weaknesses in their viewing. For example, one viewer might excel at sketching but "totally suck" at describing objects or events. Another viewer might be terrific at perceiving smells at the target, but is terrible accurately describing colors.
Super Heroes... Who, Me?
The good news is... Everyone's strengths can combine to make us a formidable "super hero" when we work together as a group (as we do in the Intuitive Specialists' Online Mentoring Clubs).
By studying the results of your practice sessions in the light of the feedback photo, you will learn your own strengths and weaknesses. Knowing your weak areas can allow you to strengthen them through focused practice sessions and exercises.
By the same token, knowing what you are good at can be a useful tool in operational (aka: "real world") sessions.
In other words, when you are practicing, you work on strengthening weaknesses. This is where keeping data and having a qualified instructor can be a great asset! The instructor can study your data and see where you need help, creating targets just for you that are especially designed to strengthen your particular weakness.
To help you understand what I am talking about, let me give you an example.
After I began working with Lyn Buchanan in the mid-90's, just by working with me and looking at my results in his database, Lyn was able to determine that I had a strong fear of heights. He began to send me groups of ten practice targets to view. (This was back in the days when all of our targets had to be hand-crafted by gluing magazine pages on to pieces of paper!)
Lyn would slip in photos involving height among the other practice targets. For example, every other target or so, I would be viewing a plane in flight, or a hot air balloon, or the tallest roller coaster in the world, or a circus performer on a trapeze, etc.
Eventually, I became desensitized to heights during my practice sessions. Imagine my delight when I discovered that this transferred to my real life, and I could now ride roller coasters, fly in hot air balloons and even go parasailing 600 feet in the air, attached to a kite!
How Do Our Senses Help Us Be Better Remote Viewers?
Any sense --whether it is the sense of smell, taste, sound, texture, ambience or the perception of color or luminance -- can totally open up a target for a remote viewer.
To give just one example of how important these sense can be, let's say you are a remote viewer doing a session for the police to help them find a baby who has just been kidnapped. Remember, as a remote viewer, you are totally blind to what you are viewing. At most, you have only been told "The target is a location. Describe the target."
In your session, you hear the sound of a baby crying. As you hone in on that sound, your monitor (or you, if you are monitoring yourself) moves you next door to the right of wherever the baby crying sound is. Now you in the house next door, and you perceive the smell of bread baking.
Next, the monitor asks you to move back to the location of the baby crying. Once you have done that, you are asked to move again -- this time next door to the left of wherever the baby crying sound is. You hear school bells and the sound of laughter and giggles.
The monitor then moves you directly across the street from the sound of the baby crying and you perceive the sound of church bells chiming.
Next, you move directly behind and across the street from the sound of the baby crying and you perceive rivet, rivet, rivet sounds, clanging sounds and loud air rasp sounds, for example.
The police could then feasibly triangulate-- from your perceptive descriptions -- and find a house or a location surrounded by a bakery, and elementary school, a church, and an auto body shop -- thereby locating the missing child and saving a life!
Over the next few blogs, I will be exploring the role that each sense can have in the remote viewing process, and how the development of your senses can vastly improve your remote viewing sessions! You will also learn some fun and easy exercises that will improve your perceptions both in your day-to-day life and make you a better Remote Viewer!
