Remote viewing - When will someone lead?

This week I left my membership to IRVA (International Remote Viewing Association) behind with the announcement to the admin that I would not be renewing the $50 fee.

Nearly two years ago after a long time watching IRVA from the outside I decided to try to participate from the inside to see if this could bring some much needed enthusiasm to the field of remote viewing - after all you have to be in it to win it - or so I hear.

Once inside these enclaves it soon became clear that this was another organisation like many others that really did nothing with the talented and enthusiastic people who work and run at the grass roots levels of the field. That the main aim of the organisation had become lost over time and now its only real aim was to keep itself alive, like a dying man hooked up to a tank of oxygen, one more breath, one more breath...

Time after time in forum discussions I saw talented and dedicated remote viewers who cried out for projects, full of ideas for expansion and modernisation beaten down with demoralised attitudes and excuses of money, time and resources.

So after nearly two years I would not renew - we are in financial turmoil across the globe and I couldn't justify $50 membership fee on a randomly produced black and white newsletter containing reviews of old remote viewing books and conference highlights where people talked anout the so called glory days of remote viewing in the 1970s.

I get around within Remote viewing community and will work with anyone who works properly and who will share and over the years I've discussed and met with many remote viewers, many of which cry out for and want leadership, want a direction to follow, want help and companionship on the learning journey that is remote viewing - the question is, if IRVA cant do this then who will.

Its a crying shame really because like we have all seen on report cards from teachers in our deep pasts there is the writing 'could do better' scrawled across the history of the organisation.

I guess time will tell.

Tha Art of the Ideogram in Remote Viewing

The Art of the Ideogram.

The Ideogram is a cornerstone of the CRV (Controlled Remote Viewing) methodology created by Ingo Swann (Circa 1979-1988) as a consultant for SRI. The Ideogram has also been adopted by the following mutated forms of CRV but at times it’s been given less of a prominence in these later methodologies.

Firstly what is an Ideogram?
Simply put - An ideogram is a pictorial representation of an idea or concept.

For example:

This drawn symbol or shape is now commonly known to represent infinity. It cant possibly show everything that a concept like infinity means - but its shape and form represents the concept of infinity.

In CRV, the Ideogram represents an instantaneous reflex capture of the remote viewing target in picture form. A pictorial summary of the target.

The Ideogram takes the form of a reflex action with no drive form the conscious mind as it skips across the pages at a lightening pace. The Ideogram is then lightly probed to extract its ‘feeling’ its ‘form’ and its sensory impressions.

In essence in the many years of doing ideograms they have become known to me as an object of beauty, an art form, an expression of the entire target and every single bit of data, captured within a sweep on the pen.

Each and every single ideogram is different and although some have common features like straight or intersecting lines representing structures, most ideograms have that like bit extra, a subtlety that radiates the needed information. The key is to ta
ke the time to respect, explore and decode the ideogram properly. I’ve seen student want to skip this target of the remote viewing process in their willingness to sketch or delve into the depths of a target, yet it’s all here wrapped up in a beautiful, purely creative and personal expression of the target.

Over the years I have come to see ideograms as single works of art - a pure unaltered expression of the remote target, untouched by noise as it momentarily explodes form the creative mind on to the paper and dissipates in a nano-second
. I can look back on a remote viewing session containing multiple layered ideograms and with the hindsight of feedback - I see mapped in the swirling lines and unconsciously created ‘art’ a map of the target laid bare, waiting to be probed and discovered. Lying within the ideogram is a creative language stronger and more intense than any language of words.

A Recent example:

This is an ideogram recently created in a remote viewing project for a missing person.

At the point where the random target number ended you can see the creative explosion of information travel through me, into the pen and then on to the paper. You can trace the flow of the pen in the great arcing swirls and downwards as it records a life form, labelled [a.].

Then it skips across the page wanting to impart more information, which it does in a secondary explosion of sweeps and swirls reaching across the white void. This second Ideogram is labelled [b.] and when probed it indicates the confused, heavy, stifling, busy, mental condition of the target life form. This is a nano-second of creative expression, detailing a complex mental condition involving depression and sever confusion. On probing I can sense this, see it and feels it, a cloudy puffiness that takes over all.

The creative side of me sees this Ideogram as a thing of beauty a swirling form of energy as if reaching out across the pages with a story to tell.

It turns out the Missing person is a male with a severe mental condition who is prone to episodes of confusion, and who is still missing, presumed dead.

For the practitioners out there - remember to take your time and have fun with the Ideogram part of the process, it’s the creative side of you expressing the target in ‘your’ personal language. It also shows that behind all the acronyms and words that remote viewing IS an artistic process and that your Ideograms, sketches and even your pages of information are like little galleries filed with works of art., your art, learn to love and respect them.

For those methodologies or practitioners that have bypassed or relegated the Ideogram to a secondary position in your process - you need to re-evaluate this, go back and give it another try, look deep into the action and expression that explodes form both the target and from within in each of these little artworks.

All the best...
