Why I started RVPGNYC
An old Blog post from 2011.
I became interested in remote viewing several years ago, and have since read several books on the topic. I didn’t do much about it, tried a few times on my own with little success. However, what I had read and seen in videos I was sure there was something to it. It wasn’t until I attended a Stephan Schwartz and Russell Targ week long workshop at the Omega Institute NY, that I actually saw something in my own sessions, and all those attending, that made it clear, there was something ‘going on’.
So I get back home, and try, and try, and keep trying, but I’ve lost it again. Very poor results. I get disillusioned but sign on for Henry Reed’s very good online course. I get some good results, in particular at the ‘outbounder’ type experiments. I also start participating in the new IRVA focal point practice group and although variable, get some good results. There seemed to be a difference between when I try online practice targets on my own, and when there are more people involved, either as taskers or more viewers on the same target.
I posed this as a question in a post to the wonderful people at TKR and, yes, general view was that the human connection made a big difference….
I look around on the Meetup.com site, and am disappointed to see that no one is running a remote viewing practice group in the area.
October last year I attend the “Parapsychology and Consciousness” conference hosted by Atlantic University at the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach.
I have been fascinated by Edgar Cayce, particularly since attending a talk by Sidney Kirkpatrick and subsequently reading his book; Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet
The days were engaging and the setting, with the ARE so close to the beach was beautiful, a pleasant change from the bustle of NY.
But something odd happened, instead of being relaxed by the stress free, calm environment I couldn’t sleep. I sometimes do have a hard time getting to sleep, but this was relentless. My mind just wouldn’t stop: over and over, the image of a class room setting, attendees, exercises, discussion, learning and fun. I knew what I had to do; start a group.
