Date: Sat Jan 4, ?003 9:40 pm Subject: Psyche-building dennanm I'm catching up while I take a sanity break from work, here... Hi Linda, > It might not help with RV, but I suspect it could > help with psi abilities and development in > general. (Actually, I have been finding this to > be the case with myself.? ) Much of the thinking I do is as much along the lines of how to approach the psychological aspect of psi as psi itself. I think this is because I have always been fascinated with the mind, and changing the mind; I was very involved in hypnosis study and practice for many years as part of that interest, as well as a ton of self education in the psychology subject in general. Night before last I played "Battleship" with my ex, who is staying here for a couple weeks to see the kid (and now yet more, since he missed his bleepin' plane, sigh!? ). This is like the ultimate dowsing game! I would work to 'feel' where on the board his ship might be. Several times I nailed a ship out of the blue - not impossible to do by chance obviously - but I thought, what a great instant-feedback kind of exercise. :-? ) Funny thing was I was more likely to nail a ship when there were say, 11 chances out of 90, than I was when there was one out of 3 -- when I'd already hit a ship and then had to decide which direction it was going to get the rest of it. I attributed this with curiousity to some AOL on my part - my brain was then involved, which it really wasn't much in the first part. (Well, it's not double-blind as the other person is in the room with you, but dowsing, alas, is seldom done even blind, not sure why. It's just not real common -- I think that is common in a lot of psi work -- one of the distinctive things about RV of course is the science background which gave rise to the RV 'protocol' which includes that.? ) I've been pursuing my concept of 'Aspect RV', which is not so much a method of RV but rather, a psychological+psi exercise. I think the first value of it is more psychological but in the end, the result could be more 'fluency' with oneself in psi operation. The goal not so much being to get the information (end result? ) as it is to get practice tuning into a lot of aspects of oneself -- or you might just say "points of view", we are not talking about identities generally -- for that kind of information. Experience, not end-result, but I think the experience could be useful to one's psi work. I like the idea of occasionally experimenting with different forms of psi -- different RV methods, but also different things entirely, such as Tarot or scrying or whatever. They all seem to bring out different aspects of us. It seems if one could develop some facility in a variety of methods, it would be interesting to do your RV targets, I have a pool set up where if I want, I can put multiple little copies of the print of the feedback photo/text in with the index card in the security envelope (which can be drawn before or after the session? ). Haven't bothered yet but I think I'm going to make a bunch of dupes like that, and then after doing a session, keep one FB for the book and write the target# on the index card and throw it back in the pool -- but this time toss it in the pool for scrying, or tarot, or whatever -- so I'd get it double blind from that one as well. Obviously one would have to do a significant amount of practice to ever get anywhere with this method. But it would allow an individual to see what kind of data they get on the same target using different methods. Just some thoughts... Regards, PJ

From: "intuitwolf " Date: Sat Jan 4, ?003 10:00 pm Subject: Re: Psyche-building intuitwolf > the pool -- but this time toss it in the pool for scrying PJ, have you done much with scrying? If so, do you mind describing how you go about it? What do you use? I have a cooper bowl. I know some people use water, or a mirror. Do you get primarily visual data or is it more a focus tool and the data comes in much as RV data? I've only tried it a few times and been interrupted every time. Session break! There's something about it that feels odd to me. . . like I'm not sure what's supposed to happen - true with all new things I suppose. With meditation you don't look for anything to happen. And I suppose that's what makes me uncomfortable with it. It isn't structured like RV, or tarot or runes or IChing - or the healing work -- it's just a sort of waiting. Any guidelines or thoughts you can offer are appreciated. Shelia

From: "Nita Hickok" Date: Sun Jan 5, ?003 10:53 am Subject: Re: Re: Psyche-building nitahickok Hello Sheila The information opens up on a wider level because there is a different feel to the signal line. You access it through the element that you are using. Tarot cards have symbology, as do the runes and I- ching. They can get really complex even though the runes and tarot both have a yes and no. The bowl with water or anything else is a focus point. The interesting thing is that you have a tendancy to be able to read writing and not get aol's. It is like watching a little movie because you are used to seeing tv and movies in a focus point and it comes easier somehow for a lot of people. You can have a focus point with anything coffee in a cup, and learn to develop the images in your minds eye then it is clairvoyance or remote viewing or whatever you want to do with it. Burning Myrrh also is supposed to help with prophetic visions and clearing the energy. It is just window dressing to get your mind in the mood. The important thing is to use your mental muscles not trying to strain your eyes to see what is in the bowl. Most people squint their eyes and glare at the place the images are supposed to appear and add more force of thought. The best thing to do is to link the bowl to the energy of the place or people you are trying to see. The bowl will reflect what they are doing as if it is a mirror. NIta

I agree with most of your post. However, I don't think the "mirror" metaphor is quite right. At least it's not for me. In RV, I often get visuals that are mirror-images; that is, what is actually on the left will seem in my mind to be on the right and vice versa. But in scrying, that has never happened. If I see something in the ball (I use a black crystal ball? ) that is on the right side, when I get feedback, it will really be on the right side. I see the actual image and not a mirror-image. Why there is a difference between closed-eye visuals when I do RV and open-eye visuals when I do scrying, I don't know. But that's how it is for me. Do you actually see a mirror-image when you scry? How about when you RV? Best Regards, Don

Have you used scrying in the context of remote viewing - being blind to the target? just using the coordinate number/letters? > The important thing is to use your mental muscles not > trying to strain your eyes to see what is in the bowl. I don't have a problem with that part of it - I've done some serious candle gazing. I meditate, so I know how to just relax and wait but I did wonder if I should be doing anything else in particular. Don's comment: "Another difference in scrying is that it seems to take longer for the data flow to start than it does with RV. " answers my 'how long should I wait question'. I felt I must not be doing it right because it didn't happen quickly for me. And I think I have just one other [probably BIG] problem with it. I've had a few mirror experiences and have been told a few that were really hair raisers! and I think I'm just blocking myself with this particular medium. Go figure! After all the other mediums that don't give me a twinge I get spooked by this one. :-? ) So, I'm wanting to gather information from folks who've had successful experiences with scrying and decontaminate myself by approaching it from an informed position. Thanks to both of you, Shelia

From: "Nita Hickok" Date: Mon Jan 6, ?003 10:14 pm Subject: Re: Re: Psyche-building nitahickok Hi Sheila I really don't need a mirror anymore except to draw influences into the physical realm. I just use my minds eye. I do a lot of astral projection work and OBE work in the things I do for others. I have used RV co-ordinates double blind and it is great for adding extra information by using the different methods. I do not consider it rv but sometimes I feel getting the information is the important part. I have always had very good results with the mirrors. I have used coffee in coffee cups. It has always come easily for me and I don't get symbolic information. I always felt trying to figure out allegorical and symbolic meanings just meant I wasn't getting things clearly. I think that if mirrors bother you then you should try crystal balls or bowls of water or some other technique. The important part is praying where the mirror is attuned to the higher forces and nothing of lower vibrations of energy can get through to harm what you are trying to do. Nita

From: greenmn900... Date: Mon Jan 6, ?003 ?:?9 pm Subject: Re: Re: Psyche-building greenmn900... Hi Sheila, Since you've got experience with candle meditation, scrying will probably come easy to you. In fact, some people scry with a candle (candle-gazing? ). Which is something I want to try. I've done a little over 100 scrying sessions to-date. All of them but one have been double blind and that one was single blind. I use the same protocol as I do with RV, sealed envelopes, the works. My results aren't as good as they are with RV, but they are getting better all the time. Over the last 6 months or so, it;s been about equal, so my poor results may have just been me trying to get used to doing it in new way in the beginning. What I do is just kind of gently look at the crystal ball until my vision goes out-of-focus. I don't really stare at it in any kind of intense way. When I first started doing it, an image of dark grey fog or smoke would usually appear just before the target images did. It was so sudden, it scared the hell out of me the first time it happened! lol! But I don't get the fog anymore for some reason. The information usually takes at least 5 minutes or so and sometimes even longer before it starts. I've found that the more relaxed I am, the deeper my meditation before I really start opening to the target, the quicker the images come. I've also found that just slightly darker than normal room lighting seems to work well. It doesn't really have to be very dark. I've also noticed that the images tend to be more literal and less symbolic than with RV. Also, in the beginning, images was all I could get. As time went on however, I started to get feelings and concepts along with the images so that I understood what they meant in a more specific way. One of the hardest parts for me was stopping to write or sketch the information I was getting, and then getting started again. It seemed like it took forever to start getting images again after looking away to write or draw. But, as time went on, that became easier too, and it's not really a big deal now. The images themselves seem to appear in the air between myself and the ball. They also seem bigger than the ball. My crystal ball is about 5-6 inches high and sometimes the images will seem to be a couple feet in height and width. One of the hard parts is kind of like OBEs, when it first works for you, you're often so excited by it that you lose the image immediately! This was another problem I had when I first started scrying. I try to do 1-? scrying sessions per week but I usually got in more like 1 every two weeks because I'm also trying to keep up lots of daily RV practice, too. I think you'll find that it's not really much different than RV (well, it may be for you, since you use CRV? ). But, there's nothing to be scared of, especially if all you are looking for is just a remote viewing-type target and not trying to speak with dead ancestors or anything like that. I hope some of this helps. Good luck. Best Regards, Don

From: "intuitwolf " Date: Tue Jan 7, ?003 1?:?4 am Subject: Re: Psyche-building intuitwolf Thank you Don; that was excellent and full of information. I too had the startle response to my first few OBEs. Actually every once in while I still do - usually only when it happens too fast before I'm prepared to find myself so suddenly out there. The comments about the scale of visual images was interesting. And just as with OBEs I can understand what you're saying about the excitement factor. I will start with simple meditation as you suggest and then move forward. Oh, and don't worry I do not get into contacting dead relatives. . . I figure they are too busy to be bothered with idle curiosity. We already have a dream passageway where we meet whenever they have something to say to me. It's easier on the nerves for both sides. :-? ) Thanks again, Shelia

From: Ken Burns Date: Tue Jan 7, ?003 3:04 pm Subject: Re: Re: Psyche-building mesundo Hi Shelia, I was gazing at a mirror one time and my face vanished; except for my mustache. It seemed to be 'floating', because as I would move my head a little, the mustache would move around in the mirror. All of a sudden, the mustache vanished and a grotesque looking face appeared. My heart started pounding and I either heard a voice or it was a 'high voltage' thought that said ; "Ken, you have to learn how to control your breathing". I have read and come to believe that for every emotion, there is a corresponding breathing pattern. So if we can control our breathing, we control our emotions. I think that's one way to approach scrying and have some control of fear. If we focus on our breathing, we won't be focusing on our fears. A breathing pattern that I have found useful; is to breathe in for 10 seconds and out for 10 seconds. As you take a breath in, you push down and out on your lower abs and stomach.. You breathe in and out through the nose and the breath is as soft , quiet and smooth as possible. This is from an ancient Korean meditative breathing technique, called Sun Do, for acquiring and directing Ki energy and calming the mind. I haven't done any candle gazing, but would like to try it. Any tips? I used to practice staring at a candle flame and then closing my eyes to see how long I could keep and bring back the after image. That's the only candle work I've done. Ken

Actually every once in while I still > do - usually only when it happens too fast before > I'm prepared to find myself so suddenly out there." It's still my biggest problem when trying to accomplish a conscious OBE exit. I'm working so hard to stay in the right state of mind, to remain completely relaxed as I do so, etc., that once the vibrations fade I suddenly think to myself, "I'm out! I'm out!" And then BOOM! - I fall back into my body! The falling sensation followed by the feeling of "landing" abruptly back in my body startles me so much that another attempt is out of the question. I have to give it up and wait til the next night. I used to occasionally wake up already out, but that doesn't seem to happen much anymore. So, I've been working on trying to get out almost every night when I go to bed before I fall asleep. It rarely works though. I think my last "for-sure" OBE was 6 months to a year ago. I'm thinking about going back to the lucid dream approach but that's a tough one to get control of too. How do you do it? I've got around 15 books on astral projection and a few have some really good ideas (not just the normal stuff like Monroe's and Muldoon's methods? ). I think one of my problems is that I want to do everything! I want to concentrate on RVing, dowsing, scrying, astral projecting, etc., and then also try out small variations on all of the above. So much to try and so little time! lol! > You wrote: > "I will start with simple meditation as > you suggest and then move forward." I was thinking that, since you have experience with candle-meditation, you might want to try candle-scrying first. It may be easier for you to start with that. But I don't know, I've never tried it with a candle. It may be harder than using a bigger, more reflective object to focus on. It's funny, what you said about dreams being a better way to communicate with the dead. The book I talked about in the post I just made to Bill - under Re: ouija (was thoughts; ?003? ), several people interviewed for that book said exactly the same thing. They all agreed that it's a more natural, safer way to do it than any other. Good luck. Just don't get discouraged. I almost did in the beginning. The first ?-3 times I tried scrying, I sat there for like 30 minutes and nothing happened at all (that still happens probably ?0-30% of the time, instead of getting aols - or something my imagination has created - I just don't get anything? ) Then, suddenly, it started working. I think the suddenness of it, and the seeming ease of it, added to my startle-factor the first time it worked for me. Warm Regards, Don

From: "Viv" Date: Wed Jan 8, ?003 9:?6 pm Subject: Re: Re: Psyche-building eclecticviv Hi Kids: I feel a need to interject a comment or two here on the OBE subject. I frequently hear or read, many folks talking in terms of not being able to, or having a difficulty with leaving one's physical state for an OBE excursion. There many conditions/reasons, sited as to why it isn't successful, at will. IMO, this concept of doing an OBE is in error. The fact of the matter is, we ALL, OBE frequently, some, every time they go to sleep. The real issue here is remembering it. That's what it is reallly about. If one is to tired, preoccupied, to intense about doing an OBE, or whatever, this is what will interfer with the conscious memory of OBE's. Meditation as a preliminary for doing an OBE seems to help a lot with the conscious retention of one's OBE experience. It might be even more helpful if the meditation is set with the purpose of increasing the memory of the experience, with greater detail and more OBE frequency. When I first set out to deliberately OBE, I would meditate with the intention of traveling someplace I've never been to before, that I could identify later on a map. Most of these first experiments were for the purpose of having fun with the OBE. I've also, read and heard, many describe their successful separations for an OBE, but have never experienced that for myself. All I know is, I go to sleep, and suddenly I'm aware that I'm out and about, in the nethers. Conversely, most all of the OBE's I remember, usually end abruptly. The first couple of times it happened was a little unnerving. Feeling ones self, flying backwards, while viewing the sky, stars, the inside of the attic, going through the floor/ceiling, as I fell fast, a zillion miles an hour, and then slamming into the physical, is an eye opener. Now I'm used to it and it's not a big deal to wake up from the sudden slamming back. I've found this is the result of a physical sensor reaction. Like, my cat changes position and decides sleeping under my chin is better. Things like, a driver going by on the street with a noisy vehicle, stuff like that. Because of this, I realized, doing OBE's isn't a case of doing them or not doing them, but remembering them. I also, realized that sometimes small aspects of an OBE may contain precognitive bits and pieces of info. Several times I've met people for the first time in an OBE, only to meet them again, for the first time, in waking life later, like the next day, or the next week. OBE's are fun and we all do OBexcursions all the time. No one should feel concern that they're not accomplishing this. What we want most, is to remember the excursions. Like to add, one of my most favorite OBE books is, "Out of Body Experiences", by Robert Peterson. Viv* ---------------------------- Moderator's note: I agree, and also mentioned as I think Eva did, that OBEs happen anyway during sleep, it's just remembering them. But there is also deliberately or fully conscious OBEs, which I've done much of my life, and they are often very cool experiences and often feel much more physical than those realized during sleep do. 'Astral projection' is another approach to psi work and for some people who get practiced at it, it seems to work well. Whether this is just "another model" for how to interpret data, who knows! PJ

Many years ago I read a book by J W Dunn called 'Experiment in time'. In it he proposed the theory that if we assume our 'present' to be a dot on a timeline, when asleep our consciousness circles that dot. At times it passes behind, at others it passes in front. He then suggested an experiment that people could try for themselves. Grab the first thought in your head when waking, write it down, and back track through as many of your dreams as you can. Then, over the next few days, compare those dreams with what happens. I tried this, and after a time was able to back track reasonably successfully and appeared to be getting a number of 'hits'. However, one morning I woke up remembering a very clear dream of standing on a corner at the top of our road, hearing a car approaching fast, seeing it come around the corner, skid, and crash into a hedge. That same morning I stood at the top of the road and relived that dream. Nobody was hurt, the car wasn't even badly damaged, but I stopped the experiment. Why? Because to this day I cannot be absolutely certain I didn't cause that car to crash. There is no real logic to that thought, though predictions always hold the risk of being self fulfilling prophesies, but the thought remains nevertheless. Am I being a fool? Am I being fanciful? Who knows. But the powers many of us have can, and do, have a darker side, and I'm not always certain we appreciate either their extent or potential. Sorry folks, that all sounds a bit 'worthy' and I'm certain everyone in this group exercises the greatest care. Anyway, that's the reason I tend to involve myself more with past and present than the future. Chris

I can't tell you how long I've wrestled with this too, Chris. I can't tell whether I'm seeing something or whether I'm causing it. I don't want to do more harm than good and I don't understand much of what is happening when it happens. Sometimes an event will just hit me over the head so that I can no longer ignore it and look the other way. But I don't tend to go looking for them anymore.
