Maybe _you_ were the squid. Seriously.
I did a target some time back, I got a strong feeling that my eyes were
bulging out of their sockets. No human thought or emotions were available
to me. In the end my eyes were hurting so much I had to stop. Turned out it
was a lizard, with those same bulging out eyes.

Hello Michael and all;
Liam here. Lord knows the last thing I want to do is get the drug
thread going again,but...... there has been so much dis-information
flying around I feel compelled to say something. first of all; it is
true that the Native American Church (NAC) has one ceremony in which
Peyote is used. This Ceremony should always be presided over by a
Medicine Man /Woman. People attending this Ceremony (which lasts all
night) do have visions. The amount of Peyote taken (which is
optional for each person) does not effect the strength or the number
of the visions. The visions do not come from the Peyote but from the
Spirits who are called by the Ceremony. Peyote, without the
Ceremony, normally results in hallucinations not visions.
It has been my experience that Traditional Native Americans do not
find our way of ERV/CRV strange at all. In fact they readily except
it, and many have been doing something similar, but just never really
thought about it. It is the western culture which has a hard time
accepting our way of doing RV.
There seems to be a general misperception that because there is a
thing called a Peyote Ceremony, that all shamanistic versions of
remote viewing require drugs. This is quite simply; faulty logic.
Most shamanistic versions of RV forbid the use of drugs. Drugs, to
include alcohol, are forbidden in a Native American or Celtic Sweat
Lodges. The use of drugs would be an insult to the Spirits and would
disturb the energy of the Sweat Lodge. Drugs are forbidden on Vision
Quests. Medicine Men or Women conducting spiritual ceremonies are
expected to be drug and alcohol free. I have heard it said that it
is difficult to be a Medicine Man when you have The Pipe in one hand
and the bottle in the other.
The two identifying characteristics of the shamanistic approach,
IMHO, are the use of a ceremony or ritual, and the spiritual aspect
of the experience. The spiritual aspect can be good or bad;
witches, skinwalkers, etc also use the shamanistic approach to RV.
The shamanistic approach also often requires the achieving of a
trance or trance-like state.
I have the deepest respect , awe, and a lot of envy, for those who
have the ability to use shamanistic RV. They have been involved in
this magic for thousands of years. They certainly have more
knowledge in this arena then we late coming westerners. What I
object to is the equating of shamanistic RV to drug induced RV to
justify an argument for using drugs to enhance RV.
Finally; if you are looking for an easier, softer, way, the
shamanistic version is not it. There are several people in this
group who can train you to be an operational RVer in less than six
months (if you and they/us have sufficient free time to devote to the
process). To become a Medicine Person, takes years and years of
study and dedication by a person who has demonstrated talent in this
Remember; "Reality is for those people who cannot deal with drugs."
May the force be with you

Subject: [VWR] PJ Personal Notes
Thanks for your patience during the long VWR list dry spell. I
didn't realize it would be that long. I'm back online now -- albeit
sitting on the floor with my computer -- so it shouldn't be a problem
anymore; as per the 'normal' flow I'll probably send the messages out
3-5 times a week.
I've settled -- for a few months -- into a little town population of
889 (according to the sign on the road). The people are friendly, my
daughter's babysitter is right around the corner, and as long as you
don't need a decent store or to do anything after 5pm or on a Sunday,
it suits all needs. I'm hoping to buy a truck this weekend and then
I'll be all set!
My husband Lu will come down for a couple weeks visit here before
going back to Canada for a few months. Though we've been married 3
years (living in Seattle) and have a child, the INS says he has to go
back to live in Canada, I apply for him, and eventually they let him
back into the country. Hopefully it won't be too long a wait, they
say maybe 90 days, maybe 180. It's a good thing he and I work on the
internet since it means we can live anywhere and still do our work.
In the meanwhile, becoming a single mother of a nearly-2 year old in
a new place with a new job has been a real ... experience! :-) She's
a happy baby and we're having a real mommy-daughter bonding time. We
keep sharing dreams. That is always so weird....
Time, though, is what I have approximately none of. Between full
time work, two hours of commute a day, cleaning and cooking and the
toddler, I barely have time to turn ON my computer. I've been
offline so much, for so long now, that I'm actually getting used to
doing without it. (I think they call this "Getting a life," right?)
I sure miss my friends online, though......
My job, which is just doing internal www and graphic design for a
govt contractor firm down here (same thing I've been doing, they just
want to pay me a great salary to do it), is almost embarrassingly
easy, slow... no pressure, no stress, nothing hard, it's kinda
driving me crazy since I'm one of those driven Aries-rising type
people whom stress and activity actually helps hold together. Other
than fighting off falling asleep at my desk daily (the room is SO
peaceful), it's gone real well, and if they'll have me, I think I'll
stay awhile. I have the fastest desktop computer available and a
humongous screen.... it's a Mac, of course... my work computer is so
awesome my PC at home seems pretty limpid now. :-)
I hope y'all are having a great Spring, that life is going well, and
for those of you die-hards who actually make TIME to practice RV, I
hope it's moving right along for ya and you're learning a lot about
yourself. For any of you who have email in my now over 1300
unanswered inbasket, I sincerely apologize, but say honestly you may
never get one... if you had something you needed response on, write
me again... if it hits me when I've time, I'll respond, otherwise, I
read everything but don't have much time to write. Nothing personal
at all, I'm just filled to the brim with offline life right now. For
all the people I should have sent a new address and phone #, bug me
about it okay, lately if I had a brain I'd be dangerous....
I'm glad everyone has joined me here, I appreciate the interest
and participation, and I encourage serious study of remote viewing
and psi. When I get some time to get back to practice, I'll be
posting the PJRV's again. Would be neat to hear that sort of thing
from others on the list, too.

Come on guys! Your comments imply
that someone can't avoid AOL in an
ERV mode of operation. If I'm supposed to be doing ERV (at least
that's what everyone has been calling it but me) then, that is just
not true. Also, are you guys implying that AOL "almost never happens"
in the CRV mode? That would be just a wee bit over the top for me.
(You must have been hitting the sauce again, Laim? Of course Gene,
being Irish has an excuse.) Such statements also imply that there is
some unique method of determining AOL in CRV which works far better,
or more times than not, which does not agree with any of the

This is sort of like saying because someone only drives a certain

Facts are; AOL is probably going to be a permanent and significant
problem with any method of remote viewing. Evidence produced within
labs suggests that no one methodology is capable of identifying and
extinguishing AOL any better than another over the long haul. There
have been significant runs of very low AOL or displays of almost no
AOL which have been done by individual remote viewers. So, there are
indications that some people might have a talent for producing less
AOL than others. But it does not appear to be method driven since it
doesn't hold up in testing across all remote viewers using the same
