Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Remote Viewing (But Didn't Know To Ask)

We are thrilled to announce that this past November, Debbie completed an additional intense training course to further her mediumship and psychic abilities; she has now achieved certification in Basic TSP Remote Viewing.

"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

For many years, Debbie has been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to study extensively with highly respected professional Mediums in her field. She has had quite an interest in Remote Viewing, and was always looking for the ‘right’ teacher with whom to study and learn more about this fascinating topic. In discussing this with a good friend and colleague, she was finally led to the ‘right’ teacher: Nancy du Terte. Nancy’s credentials are astonishing: she is an attorney, trained psychic detective, spiritual Medium, medical intuitive, and paranormal investigator. Nancy teaches psychic development, and works with law enforcement and victims’ families on missing person and homicide cases. When Debbie learned that Nancy was offering a limited enrollment class for appropriately credentialed students, she jumped at the opportunity.

What is remote viewing? A human perceptual ability to access, by mental means alone, information blocked from normal perception by distance, shielding, or time. It is a psychic ability to “see” things without the use of one’s eyes. It is more similar to clairvoyance than ESP or telepathy.

Remote viewing, according to the International Remote Viewing Association, is a mental ability that enables a viewer, i.e. Debbie, to describe or give details about a target that is inaccessible to normal senses due to distance, time, or shielding, within a strict-science based protocol. The viewer is able to project their mind to a different time and/or place to receive information, all without moving or leaving their physical body. For example, a viewer could be given a picture of a specific location that they have never visited and have no knowledge of - and be asked to describe in detail what occurred there, and why it was significant.

Remote viewing utilizes extrasensory perception, or ESP, which is commonly referred to as “the sixth sense” and encompasses things such as intuition, clairvoyance, and telepathy.

Nancy du Tertre, with whom Debbie studied, is the founder of a type of remote viewing called TSP: tested extrasensory perception and clairvoyance. TSP is a way of combining one’s intuition with their inner vision, and using the two to access information that is then matched against verifiable reality. Her teaching style is rooted in her belief that as humans, we are deeply linked to the world around us and therefore capable of extraordinary things, but that these abilities, and the information they provide, must be verified.

Remote viewing has a complex and fascinating history, although it is not one many people know about. For many years, the U.S. Government has researched ESP, using it to locate hostages, fugitives, secret bases, and downed fighter jets; to divine other’s nation’s secrets; and even predict future threats to national security. The intelligence agencies involved include the CIA, NSA, DEA, the Navy, Air Force, Army, even the Joint Chiefs of Staff. While the U.S. military and intelligence communities began experiments in remote viewing in 1942, the modern history of remote viewing began in the late 1960s. At that time, researchers at the American Society for Psychical Research in New York City began conducting out-of-body experiments. Ingo Swann, who today is considered an instrumental co-founder of remote viewing, was one of the subjects of these experiments. During his time there, he was able to suggest changes and ultimately improve the experiments, which resulted in his accurate description of the current weather in cities across the U.S.

Then, in 1972, a researcher at SRI (Stanford Research Institute International) in California, Dr. Hal Puthoff, reached out to a colleague in New York about beginning research into “non-conventional communications”. This ultimately resulted in Ingo Swann becoming involved with Dr. Puthoff’s research team at SRI, along with physicist Russell Targ, where they conducted some early experiments involving what we know today as “remote viewing”.

While this preliminary research was being conducted at SRI, the CIA acquired information that certain foreign countries, including Germany, China, and what was then the Soviet Union had been conducting various studies and experiments into many aspects of the “paranormal”. Worried that the U.S. was falling behind in intelligence collection techniques, the CIA, specifically scientist Sidney Gottlieb, who was the Chief of the Technical Services Division, created a large monetary endowment with the purpose of initiating a research project into these alternative methods of data collection. SRI was ultimately the recipient of this endowment, and Dr. Puthoff and Russell Targ were tasked with the project, which had a goal of creating a reliable, repeatable method of using psychic ability to gather intelligence. These experiments and in depth research into remote viewing continued for two decades, however all documents pertaining to these experiments were largely classified, and therefore the public had little to no knowledge of them.

As research continued, it was reported that this phenomenon was credible, and that results were continuing to improve in accuracy as techniques were perfected. It was not 100% accurate, but accurate and reliable enough that the government reportedly started employing these techniques for espionage. The subjects who were able to successfully perform this phenomenon were given a new title: psychic spies.

By 1985, the SRI, the main contributors being Dr. Puthoff, Russell Targ, and Ingo Swann, had developed a reliable system of remote viewing that they titled Controlled Remote Viewing, or CRV. They had developed this technique with an entire training methodology, which was then taught to various branches of the military. Due to the purported success of the research at SRI, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), as well as other military organizations, began to create their own experiments into the field of remote viewing. The Army had a program that ran from 1978-1986, which was utilized to gather intelligence regarding foreign adversaries. In 1986, the government combined the Army program along with all other remote viewing programs into a program under the DIA, which was later renamed project Star Gate. This project continued until 1995, when the project was transferred back to the CIA, who ultimately chose to terminate the program.

The decades of research conducted by Ingo Swann, the SRI, and the government laid the groundwork for all the remote viewing that exists today, and was the basis of Nancy du Tertre’s own method of TSP/Remote Viewing.

It is our belief that there is a world of information available to us – ‘universal intelligence’ – and while certainly some people are more gifted than others with psychic ability, we can all work to further develop our intuitive abilities. We can, as Nancy would say in the class, ‘ask those impossible questions’ as a way of opening our minds; to think deeper, pay attention, see more.

Following completion of the class Debbie commented, “I strongly believe the TSP/Remote Viewing class was invaluable for me. I heard about Remote Viewing for many years, although I never had the opportunity to study with such a respected and knowledgeable person as Nancy du Tertre. I was grateful to be accepted into the class. I will incorporate the knowledge, ‘tools’ and skills I learned from the class into my work as a Medium, including working on cold cases. Overall the class was truly amazing!”
