“Everyone has Psychic Ability” ?

Print Friendly

Recently on our youtube channel I began talking with a pagan who believes “Everyone has psychic ability.”  She believes this ability is something people show when they have Deja Vu or when you think of someone calling you and they do.  In order to bolster her case she told me there is a technique the military developed for anyone to use their psychic power, its called Remote Viewing.  Since the military developed this method to train people its obvious “everyone has this ability” she said.

Technical Remote Viewing

I was familiar with this…when I was searching for the truth of God 12 years ago I heard of a technique where, if its applied, anyone can bring forth their psychic power…its called Technical Remote Viewing or TRV.  I was intrigued and since I was studying anything having to do with the spiritual I decided to study it.  So I listened to dozens of interviews of its founders, Ed Dames in particular, and examined the theories behind why it works and so forth.  Eventually I bought the VHS course which was $250.

As explained from their website TRV is a “a highly structured and standardized technique that allows you to consistently obtain accurate information, on demand, using a rigorously applied set of protocols. It is a trained ability to acquire accurate direct knowledge of things and events – targets – distant in time or space, while conscious awareness remains totally ‘blind’ to details about the target itself. It is a data collection skill.” (http://www.remoteviewing.com/how-remote-viewing-works/)

The theory as to how it works comes from Carl Jung who came up with the idea of the “collective unconscious.”  Actually Carl Jung didn’t come up with it, the entity he spoke with for many years taught it to him, along with his other theories on archtypes.  Originally he thought this being was his unconscious speaking to him.  He even had a name for it, Philemon.  Later in life he realized this was an intelligence apart from himself and he also thought it might be evil, but that is another story.

The idea is a “collective unconscious” in the universe stores all the subconscious memories of every living thing.  For example, if someone is murdered on an isolated country road who knows about it?  Well the murderer does and if the victim saw the killer, so does the victim.  These “memories” are recorded in this collective unconscious or a better term for understanding might be “cosmic internet” of information.  The remote viewer simply “downloads” this information into their subconscious mind using various techniques that induce the download process.  Information such as who the killer is can be obtained, resulting in drawings or writing words on paper of whatever “target” they are focusing their attention on.  So in the case of the murder on the country road they may draw the actual country road where the murder happened or words related to that event or some other detail only the victim, the murderer or the police may know.

The Technical Remote Viewer isn’t actually “seeing” anything nor are they having an out of body experience.  They are simply downloading the information from this “collective unconscious” and DRAWING on paper what information they RECEIVE from it.  Since this “cosmic internet” resides outside of time and space the remote viewer can see ANYTHING in the past, present or future.

Their website continues with “All humans have the innate potential to receive detailed information on a target, using only their minds…It was not until the late twentieth century when the U.S. intelligence community poured millions of research dollars into the area of psychic functioning that a true breakthrough was realized. In an effort to use psychics for intelligence gathering purposes, the Defense Intelligence Agency contracted Stanford Research Institute to develop a reliable technique that could be used to collect accurate information on distant targets. The outcome of this research was a set of protocols and a training program that allowed virtually anyone to be trained to perceive psychically derived information, while surpassing the accuracy of the best known natural psychics.”

Does it Work?

During this time of study I watched a TV special on a major news program (20/20 if I remember right) about Remote Viewing.  In order to test to see if this worked they sent a reporter to the Denver airport where she sat and waited.  The remote viewer was given the task of finding where the reporter was.  A number was assigned to this event, something like 96234 or whatever.  The remote viewer was given this number and he used that number to “look up” what event the number was tied to in the “cosmic internet.”  Remember, the person who created the number knows what the number is for and this info is stored in this collective unconscious.  So its simply a matter of looking it up.

What the remote viewer did was draw on paper…the Denver airport!  Very impressive!

When I was finally convinced of its validity I tried the first lesson using the VHS training course I purchased. Numbers were given to events and I was supposed to take those numbers and look up what event they corresponded to using their techniques.  Well, something happened but not what I expected.  For some reason I couldn’t bring myself to actually finish that first lesson.  There was an uneasiness growing in my mind about it and the more I continued the more intense it became.

Something was very very wrong!  I felt like God was telling me to stop!  This reaction surprised me because I studied it thoroughly and believed it to be scientific and valid.  At the time I wasn’t a Christian, but I was seeking the truth of who God is, no matter what the outcome.  Since I was being warned I decided to trust the Lord and not continue the lesson.  At this point I had learned everything I could about the subject and the Lord dissuaded me from continuing so I never again went back to it.

During this time I gave the course to a friend who asked for it on a Friday and on Monday he told me it worked!  He was able to draw a certain continent and missiles which was the first lesson.  There is no doubt the technique works.

“The Middle Plateau”

Ed Dames, one of the founders of TRV, was speaking to an exorcist named Malachi Martin in a radio interview.  The exorcist listened to Ed talk about TRV and he commented that Ed must be accessing a realm called “The Middle Plateau” which he admitted is a dimension where demonic entities reside.  Ed agreed with this assessment and added he felt “protected” from being possessed by these entities because he had complete trust in the “angels” that were protecting him, he uses scientific checks and balances, and his personality is stable enough to withstand it.

Do these really protect him?

Accessing spiritual realms where demons reside is forbidden by God in the bible.  A “Godly” angel would not be protecting him when he is disobeying God.

In addition demons are not impressed or stopped by “scientific checks and balances.”  In fact, it was a satanist named Aleister Crowley who first popularized the idea of making spiritual experiences and altered states of consciousness “scientific.” The reason Mr. Crowley pushed the idea that “psychic” equals “science” was to imply the power to be psychic is within each of us, all you have to do is employ certain scientific methods to make the power come forth.  And this is exactly what TRV is, a scientific way to be psychic.  You see, Crowley knows all psychic power is coming from demonic entities.  Convincing people the power is coming from within yourself through scientific means is a grand delusion which elevates pride and puts the psychic at ease, not having to worry about spirits messing with them.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi tried to introduce Transcendental Meditation, a meditation technique in Hinduism, to the West.  People rejected it until he changed his message from saying this meditation is “religious” to “scientific.”  He would claim the health benefits of TM and the science of what it does to the brain while doing it.  But as I have written before TM invites demonic spirits in the mind to deceive and possess.

While Ed Dames thinks there are safeguards to protect him from being possessed, he is not protected from being LIED TO, which will change his view of who God and what He wants.

“The Gatekeeper”

I listened to dozens of radio interviews on Coast to Coast AM with Ed Dames and one curious thing stood out.  A few times he mentioned anything in the universe can be remote viewed except for one thing, something he called the “librarian” or “gatekeeper”.  He said this “gatekeeper” is an entity that appears to be sending the remote viewer whatever information it wants the remote viewer to see.  He mentioned many times they tried to remote view who or what this “gatekeeper” is and were UNABLE TO DO IT!  It seems the gatekeeper wants to keep its identity hidden from its remote viewers.

Mr. Dames admitted this gatekeeper wasn’t God so WHAT and WHO IS IT?  Well, that question was never answered in the interviews because he didn’t know.

However, some important questions come to the surface.  If there is a gatekeeper of the information than not only are you at the mercy of this gatekeeper it should be obvious that psychic ability isn’t coming from the remote viewer, its coming from this unknown entity! The Technical Remote Viewing technique is designed to open the mind to the influence of this entityThis isn’t built-in psychic power, its manipulation!

Remember, my pagan friend was saying “we all have psychic ability” and used Remote Viewing as an example.  In reality an entity is spoon-feeding the information to the person’s now open mind, which means this is not an innate ability as we are led to believe.

Remote viewing won’t work unless the gatekeeper is involved! So much for the “psychic” ability in everyone.

By the way, who is this entity and is it capable of …lying?

Future Predictions

Ed Dames has used remote viewing to predict future events and while he has had some hits there have also been misses where the events did not happen.  Whats the big deal?  People make mistakes right?  Yes people make mistakes but GOD DOESN’T!

Deuteronomy 18:21-22
21 And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’— 22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.

I thought the “collective unconscious” contains truthful information?  Yet Ed Dames has predicted events that did not come to pass.  It seems the collective unconscious and the “gatekeeper” are not consistent with the truth all the time.  But why should this be a surprise, Ed is accessing a realm where demons reside, and demons are LIARS as Jesus said they are.

Ed Dames describes himself as a “simple Christian” yet if you study the information he promotes from his remote viewing sessions it contradicts the bible and the faith he espouses.  No, he is not receiving messages from a truthful God but from lying spirits.

Nothing More Than Feelings

The pagan I was speaking with said she would “feel” something is wrong if there were a demonic spirit present.  While it is true feelings can tell you something is wrong sometimes its not 100% accurate.  This is because the bible says demons and satan can “disguise” themselves as angels of light and you cannot tell the difference.  Demons are angels and are far more powerful and intelligent than human beings so of course they can do this.  What would you do then?  How could you know if you are being lied to when the entities disguise themselves?

Thats easy…compare their messages to something objective, that removes feelings, a source that has been proven to be true archeologically, scientifically, textually, and prophetically, which is the bible.

Spirits always give a philosophy to those who communicate with them and if they are demonic they will inevitably contradict what God says in the bible about Himself.  They will say Christ wasn’t God when Christ said He was, or Christ is not the savior of mankind when Christ says He was or there is no hell when Christ talked about hell or we are all gods when there is only one God, humanity is good when the bible says no one is good except God, etc..

The messages will also echo the philosophies of satan in the bible.  Hang on a minute.  If the messages and philosophies you are learning through psychic means are in direct correlation to what satan says in the bible than obviously the source of the information is…demonic. The ability to be psychic is not coming from the PERSON its coming from ANOTHER SOURCE and its LYING to you!

Do not be deceived.

The Demon Possessed Fortune Teller

In the bible there is a slave girl who made a living being a fortune teller.  It says she was possessed with a spirit of divination.  When the demon left the girl it says in verse 19 that “their hope of profit was gone.”

Acts 16:16-19
16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. 17 This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” 18 And this she did for many days. But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities…

Her power to be psychic is not coming from an innate ability, but from the demon spirit inside of her.

If you are a psychic and you are reading this article know that you are putting your very soul in danger by using that power, even if you use it for good.  A demon will gladly do some good in the short term knowing in the long run it will cost you the most precious thing you own…your very soul. You might even be making a good living doing this but Jesus said “What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul?”

The Beautiful Side of Evil

There is a book written by Johanna Michaelson called “The Beautiful Side of Evil” where she records her psychic abilities and her experiences in Mexico, only later to learn who and what is behind that power.

What to do

If you are reading this and you have been involved in psychic abilities or remote viewing know that the true God has warned against doing these things.  He warns because He knows the source of this power and its not Him. Trying to gain personal power through psychic means will only lead to your destruction.

He is your Creator, and He loves you.  In fact, He loved you so much He came down as a man in Jesus Christ and willingly died on a cross for your disobedience and sins.   He then rose from the dead defeating death.  He did this to save you from His just judgement because you deserve to be separated from Him forever for your sins.

If you agree you are not a good person but a sinner who has disobeyed your Creator, and you cry out to Him in mercy to save you from Hell, then He will.  Put your trust in Him and not in your own psychic ability.  God isn’t lying to you as the demons do.  He wants to give anyone eternal life to all those who believe and trust in Him.  If you do, the demons will leave.

If you aren’t sure where you will go when you die take this simple test to find out.
