Scientific Remote Viewing Affirmation
I am a spiritual being. Because I am a spiritual being, I am able to perceive beyond all boundaries of time and space. My consciousness is ever present with all that is, with all that ever was, and with all that ever will be. It is in my nature, as a human, to be able to perceive, and thus to know, all that there is to know. Everwhere, at all times, I seek to learn, and thus to evolve. To further my own personal growth, and to assist others in their growth, I direct my attention to a chosen point of existence. I observe what is there. I study it carefully. I record what I find.

Liguid winds slap gently,
Full moon winter light,
Crystal circles beaming,
Light connection calling,
Quickens heart and breath,

Entwining us together,
Swirling one with nature,
We feel.
