What Is This and How Does It Work
Controlled remote viewing is a mind technique of viewing events, objects and human situations from a distance. Ingo Swann and a team of scientists developed these modalities during the Cold War. Commissioned by the government and housed by the CIA and DIA, controlled remote viewing’s goal was to spy on the Soviet Union. Its military mission was to use extra sensory perception (ESP) to locate enemy arsenals, submarines and spies. As much as the space exploration race was raging on, so also, from 1978 to 1995, the secret competition in ESP was running full-fledged between our two nations.
The official Star Gate project decommissioned and declassified in 1995. However, a few original active researchers and project managers, including investigators Lyn Buchanan and Paul Smith, remained convinced that CRV needed to be further explored.
Years after Star Gate was declassified both continued to carry on with CRV training. They wrote books and manuals, as well as training new practitioners.
Advances in CRV?
Unfortunately, controlled remote viewing for the last twenty years has not seen many changes or improvement. With a growing community of practitioners, CRV has become a fad rather than a tool to efficiently achieve goals.
The CRV method takes you through different stages of perception in order to identify a hidden site, person or an object. During these stages of sensory perception immersion, the practitioner (viewer), guided by a monitor, jots down in a very systematic way all perceptions. The goal: Identify what comes directly from the “signal line” or the “site address” or “the target”. (We borrow from the military jargon). The role of the monitor is to make sure that the viewer does not let the analytical brain take the lead over the spiritual mind. It can be a constant struggle to filter all sensory perceptions instead of delivering the raw, unfiltered information.
Delivering unfiltered, un-analyzed, raw information requires repeating the discipline of dissociating analytical and critical thinking from emotional, sensory feelings about the subject remotely viewed (the target). It teaches the practitioner to recognize what’s truly pure information, and the practitioner learns to differentiate from that which is tainted by the interpretation from the brain.
Isabelle Chauffeton Saavedra, co-founder of the Life After Life Institute, trained as a scientific medium. She also formally trained in CRV, and her forte is the delivery of raw information.
Isabelle Chauffeton Saavedra with others has created a method called Spiritual Sight.
Controlled Remote Viewing and Spiritual Sight
Spiritual Sight derives from the technique called controlled remote viewing; it combines mediumship and ancient Buddhism teachings. Spiritual sight uses stages as CRV does. However, it refines into a more hands-on focus. And it emphasizes more on the first person view and experience of the viewer while remote viewing the target. In the Buddhist philosophy it is of the utmost importance to put oneself into the “shoes” of the others to feel what they feel. Spiritual Sight does exactly that while using CRV method to bring forth information.
So what’s the difference between CRV and Spiritual Sight?
First, the purpose is different. While both practitioners are not looking for submarines or bombs anymore, CRV viewers are developing the technique into deeper practices. In the spiritual sight process you can search for a missing person; you can search for a hidden virus in someone’s body.
Second, each Spiritual Sight viewer, even with very little practice, goes through a major transformation. Through a first person view of others’ emotions and states of mind, the viewer learns about the connectedness of all beings. This realization adds a dimension of compassion one’s own humanity.
The Life After Life Institute is happy to offer information and classes in controlled remote viewing and spiritual sight.
