Dowsing and Remote ViewingwithPaul H. Smith

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Paul H. Smith, PhD, serves as president of the International Remote Viewing Association an organization of which he is a founder. A former Army intelligence officer, he served for seven years as part of the military’s top-secret remote viewing program. He is author of Reading the Enemy’s Mind and The Essential Guide to Remote Viewing. He currently serves as president and chief trainer for Remote Viewing Instructional Services. He is also the author of DVD courses on both dowsing and remote viewing.

Here he describes how his interest in dowsing developed during his time as a remote viewer for the Army at Fort Meade, Maryland. He discovered that dowsing was capable of providing information regarding locations that often proved to be elusive to the remote viewing process. As a result of his interest, he was eventually elected president of the local chapter of the American Society of Dowsers. He maintains that the ideomotor response associated with dowsing can be triggered by psi-mediated information. He notes that dowsing, combined with remote viewing, were particularly effective in locating drug traffickers at sea in the Caribbean. He cautioned, however, that these methods are never 100% effective.
