Look and See…


Here are the images of target item XYZ- a chambered nautilus shell. As you measure your perceptions against the actual item, be open to nuances. Think in terms of  size, shape, texture, smell, temperature, sound, etc. For instance if you wrote down ‘sound of ocean waves’ or ‘sand’ these  are likely inferences your mind picked up as it tried to depict the target item. If you sensed something shiny or that had stripes, these could also be partial images of the Nautilus Shell. If you saw small squares stacked on top of each other, this may have been the sequential chambers of the nautilus. Remote viewing is a bit like learning to read braille in that it requires us to both think and interpret outside of the box.I hope some of you will share what your impressions were (here in the comments section or via private message to me) I will not be surprised if there are trends among the images that readers, as a group receive, it is very common to see trends in what is picked up, even with incorrect perceptions. This is just an example of group thought and how our minds, if they are seeking a common destination, can meet one another, out there in the field.

One of the reasons I chose a nautilus shell,was for its symbolic meaning. Its meaning is so well suited to the explorations we have done re: remote viewing  because it is such an ‘outside the box’ topic. It’s a concept that pushes us from our old resting spot, toward a new and bigger one. I came upon a website last night that offered an exquisite description of the symbology of the Nautilus shell.  I could not have said it more beautifully myself, so I am not even going to try. The verbage below comes directly from their site. To read more please visit their complete website at www.beyondreligion.com. 



“Oliver Wendell Holmes, a century and a half ago, saw the metaphorical significance of the chambered home of the Nautilus. These fascinating seashells are spiral in shape and consist of a series of ever-larger chambers in each of which the sea creature lives for a season until it outgrows that particular space. The Nautilus then enlarges its shell by the addition of a new chamber suitable for the next stage of its life.

Holmes wrote, in a poem entitled The Chambered Nautilus, “Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul….Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!”

What a perfect image for spiritual evolution! In order to begin a new stage in our growth, we have to think “outside the box.” Yet, every time we abandon an old worldview for a new and wider vision, we merely find ourselves in a larger box. And while each box serves its particular function for a time, we are always in danger of claiming that the chamber we currently occupy is the ultimate one.

The spiral shape of the Nautilus shell suggests that it can keep growing forever. There is no design for a “final” chamber. The creature must keep building new chambers as long as it lives. It cannot go back to the previous ones; they no longer fit. It cannot stay in its present space or it will die. It has no choice but to move on. And on.

Perhaps one day we might be able to create for ourselves a box so large that it would encompass all of God. But that space would then include everything, even those realities which we now purposely exclude by limiting the size of today’s chamber.”
