Psi can be learned. It is something we can tap into in our consciousness and be trained, like a muscle, to work for us. During the Stanford research, the government sponsors were looking for a control subject, a normal person who wasn’t a born psychic. A photographer with no previous psi experience named Hella Hammid was chosen. Head researcher Russell Targ said that when she left the program almost a decade later, she was one of their most reliable remote viewers (Targ, 2012). Can everybody learn remote viewing? Russell Targ certainly believes so. During Hella’s nine trials of viewing distant geographical targets, she achieved statistical significance of almost one in a million that her impressions could have occurred by chance (Targ, 2012). Doesn’t this mean something? Joe McMoneagle, one of the most successful government remote viewers wrote a book called “Remote Viewing Secrets: A Handbook.” In this book he teaches readers how to remote view themselves. He says that good remote views possess a mixture of one third of desire and focus, one third quality and intensity training, and one third natural talent” (McMoneagle, 2000). To him, the most important thing a student must learn to do remote viewing is to understand “zen” (McMoneagle, 2000). Zen is important because remote viewing is all about tapping into a greater unconscious that we are not often aware of. There is a lot more to reality than our five senses tell us. Consciousness extends beyond the very nature of physical time and space. Remote viewing is all about learning how to quiet your mind. Psychologist and remote viewer Keith Harary says in order to remote view, he had to “learn how to separate his own thoughts, what he calls, ‘mental noise’ from impressions, feelings and images related to the subject or target. After you get yourself out of the way, you can peel away all of that and there’s another later and that is the perceptive layer” (Guthrie, 1995). According to these trained remote viewers, this is a skill that can be acquired by tapping into something we have beneath the surface we can work to strengthen.
