Tales of Transformation: How a Retired Schoolteacher Became a Professional Remote Viewer


I find stories of how people redefine themselves fascinating. Nancy C. Jeane is a mother of three who worked as a public school teacher for over two decades. Her marriage ended about the same time as she retired. At this point she went in an entirely different direction. Today Nancy C. Jeane is a professional remote viewer, an elected member of the Board of Directors of the International Remote Viewing Association, an author, a Reiki healer, and an Excursion Trainer for The Monroe Institute.

MTPS:

Remote viewing, energy healing, and the exploration of consciousness – Were these areas of interest for you prior to your retirement?

Nancy C. Jeane:

Not really. It took a major life upheaval and massive personal disappointment for me to come out of my denial that my life was not working. I felt that I was paddling as fast as I could, but dying inside from a lack of self-fulfillment. My strong desire for a traditional loving family and all that goes with it shattered into a million pieces in what seemed to be an instant of time.

Disillusionment will sometimes lead you to the willingness to look at life differently. I was meditating one day (something new for me), and feeling totally unlovable. It was at that moment that I heard my dead father’s voice say “You are loved.” That was all it took for me to grab hold of the possibility that there is more going on here for humans than I had been taught to believe. I have been a student at the “all there can possibly be” school ever since that experience.

MTPS:

 How did people – friends, family, your children, former colleagues, etc. – react when you began to explore these admittedly esoteric interests? Were they curious or did they think you were suffering a nervous breakdown?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 NancyCJeaneNo one expressed much curiosity about what I was going through; mostly people acted with fear and avoidance. It has been my experience that people fear that which is considered outside the norm for them – the “norm” being defined by their life training and beliefs. If you step outside the boundaries of what is considered a “normal” life, even the people who love you will often reject you. Then to make their rejection of you acceptable, people will claim you are crazy or off the deep end. No amount of proof or of scientific studies will change their minds; they declare that reality is a certain way, and no other possibility is tolerated.

Thankfully, this is not always the case for all people who decide to explore new ways of thinking. I know people who have enjoyed considerable support from friends and family as they branched out to explore the unusual aspects of life. While I was not that lucky, the lack of support did not stop me, as I had no desire to stay stuck in beliefs that were controlling and limiting. But going down the path of discovery without encouragement from those closest to me was also an indication of how much I wanted – and needed – to seek the truth. Some day it is my hope that my loved ones will experience an unusual event that will allow them to understand more of the example I have set in being willing to explore more of the potential of our vast world.

MTPS:

 You received no encouragement from anyone?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 I did, but it mostly came from the people who I met on my path of seeking to learn more about expanded consciousness. I think the term used for this is “like minded” people. Those many individuals were greatly supportive of me and respectful of my path, for which I am very grateful.

MTPS:

 Did you ever consider abandoning your new interests and going back to how it was before?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 No – this journey towards what I refer to as “the total self “ seems to be a call that I believe everyone will hear eventually. “Know thyself” – the true self – is the goal as I see it. Doing so is scary and takes a whole lot of courage, but I feel like I didn’t have any other choice – it was the only path I could take to feel whole, rather than splintered into pieces. It seems that if we can separate into many pieces, we need not bother to know how magnificent we can be when we are whole and not separated. Just a small amount of doors opening to my total self was enough to motivate me to continue seeking more proof that I was more than my physical body. It is hard to go back to the beliefs that kept this truth hidden.

MTPS:

 Were people’s reactions different regarding your learning how to be a Reiki healer vs. becoming a remote viewer? Was one more accepted by people that the other?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 Oddly enough, I had more rejections from people from my study of astrology than any of the things I have studied. Reiki is rather accepted now in our Western World, but astrology is still the “work of Satan” to many. I think astrology is fascinating and has such history of accuracy that it must have a scientific base. Some things are hard to prove.

MTPS:

 Did you ever ask yourself why you were doing this? Did you ever wonder whether you were crazy?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 Others may have though me to be crazy for all these things I became interested in doing, but no, I have never entertained that thought that I was or am now crazy. I am very capable of surviving in the human world with both feet on the ground. Besides, if I am indeed crazy, I seem to have a whole lot of company.

MTPS:

 When you were exploring these different modalities, taking all these courses and learning these different skills, did you actually have a conscious end goal in mind or were you just taking it step by step?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 I had no real goal, except to be the best I could be at what I was studying. Waking up from the “dream” that we exist only in a material world is fascinating and exhilarating. It happened that the very first course I ever took was at The Monroe Institute, which offers classes where students explore human consciousness.  That really helped open my eyes to what is possible.

MTPS:

 How does your life differ now from previously? Specifically, did learning remote viewing and energy healing change how you look at people, relationships, or life in general?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 Yes, all the things that I studied and became involved with after I realized my dream of a perfect family was no longer a possibility for me, changed me greatly. Being a caretaker and looking after the wants and needs of others was a major focus of my life before; now I listen to what is best for me to do in regard to others. I love to help, but I no longer care to be an enabler if there is another way. Relationships are still hard for me because I feel like I cannot be my true self among strangers or within certain groups of people. But I have a feeling that some day the tables may flip and more people than not will understand that this world is multi-dimensional and more interesting than we have been lead to believe. Those who believe only in the physical world will be outnumbered by the ones who have awakened from the dream and realize who we truly are. Then, I believe the conversations will be much different on the news channels than they are today.

MTPS:
Your recent book, Reading My Mind: From Retired Schoolteacher to Professional Remote Viewer, covers the years of study you undertook in order to become a professional remote viewer, with details of the various courses available, the major trainers in the field and their teaching styles. I was a bit surprised at how much work – and practice – is required to become proficient in remote viewing. When people first hear about remote viewing, many of them probably think, “How cool – I want to learn that.” But it seems like a LOT of work.

Nancy C. Jeane:

ReadingMyMind Remote viewing is definitely cool, and everyone can do it. It is the degree to which the individual wants to “do it” that is important. If you will be satisfied with being able to remote view a photo in a sealed envelope, then about two hours of training will do that for you. If you want to be able to call yourself a professional remote viewer, however, that is another story. It takes motivation, time, money and practice to move from the basic remote viewer level to that of a professional remote viewer. I took piano as a child for a time. I practice enough to know the basic scales and a few simple songs. My daughter, on the other hand, took piano lessons for years and can sit down at a piano and sight-read a new piece of music. It is the same thing with remote viewing; you have to set the intent and follow it to the level of proficiency that you desire. It may take time, but most things that work well, do. Remote viewing can be wide in scope and deep in depth, or it can remain narrow in scope and shallow in depth. It is the individual’s intent and motivation to learn that make the difference.

The U.S. federal government Star Gate program was very intense, and consisted of weeks and months of drills. However, this was the “day job” for the personnel involved in it, and they got paid to do full-time what the majority of people today need to finance themselves if they are to learn this skill today. Individuals today need to have a lot of courage and determination to master this skill. It is possible, but it can take a lot of desire, time and effort.

MTPS:

 In your view, what are the qualities a person needs in order to become a good remote viewer?

Nancy C. Jeane:

  • A strong desire and willingness to expand one’s known reality is the most important quality;
  • A willingness to be taught and to regularly practice what one is taught;
  • A need to be sensitive to ways one might be resist learning, then take steps to stop it;
  • A credible training system needs to be selected that matches one’s learning style;
  • A willingness to give one’s analytical mind a rest. This is difficult because it goes against what most of us have known all our lives. Allowing the non-analytical mind (the unconscious) to join the analytical (conscious) mind is amazing in the potential for the individual to become more whole. Consider attending classes at places like The Monroe Institute to increase meditative abilities.
  • A willingness to read remote viewing books to gain a basic understanding of the process.  I wrote my own book, Reading My Mind, with the intention of presenting a simple explanation as to what remote viewing training is and what it is not. Remote Viewing is not magical and has limitation. The success of the training depends on the student’s willingness to do the required work. Learn the different kinds of remote viewing. My personal preference is CRV (Controlled Remote Viewing) as it seems to be an approach that puts legs to this modality.
  • An openness to what perfecting this skill will provide for you. It can be different for each person, but in my opinion anything that expands awareness of our world and our reality is a good thing.

MTPS:

 Aside from gaining a skill, do you think there are other benefits to people who learn remote viewing? What are they?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 While learning the skill of remote viewing was a very positive experience for me, it is the side effects that are the most important. Once the training period was complete, an integration seemed to take place on a personal level. Benefits I experienced included increased self-confidence, a greater awareness of my surroundings, less feeling of limitations in all things, increased problem solving ability, and heightened sensitivities.

Examples of how this integration manifested in my life are difficult to describe, as the benefits of remote viewing training seem to be integrated into my personality now. A pianist of many years of training, no longer think about the skill they have developed when they sit down to play the piano. They have it integrated into their life and they simply play the piano. I am always amazed that I can perform a remote viewing session after a time of not doing so, with no problems. I just do the session as I practiced for years, and it works every time. This experience does seem to translate into more self-confidence. In the future, maybe a special machine can be invented to study the before and after affects of remote viewing training on the human physic. That would really be neat!

MTPS:

 Looking back on the road you took to become a professional remote viewer, is there anything you would do differently if you were to do it again?

Nancy C. Jeane:

 No, it was perfect for me. But no two people are the same – while each person’s path to a greater understanding of reality is different, they will ultimately lead to the same place.

MTPS:

 Do you have any advise for people who are thinking of radically changing careers – especially those who are considering switching from one that is a socially acceptable profession to one that is considered a little strange?

Nancy C. Jeane:

I would suggest that people ask themselves questions about what they want to know more about. Then listen – that’s always one of the hardest parts – meditate on a regular schedule, journal, and be willing to act on things that may be out of the ordinary that may come to your consciousness. First, do small things differently, and see if paths open up. Don’t stay in a miserable situation too long. If you don’t take steps to change it, life has a way of pushing you out of the nest – and at that point your options may be less than desirable. Have courage, and learn to laugh more at the odd things of life. Humor is a wonderful thing and there does seem to be an abundance of odd things to laugh about. Don’t take issues too seriously as there are always other ways to look at things and many ways to solve problems. Work on recognizing how “fear” is a part of your life and try to find ways to walk through it and to understand it more. Have courage and determination to work on yourself and not others. We can learn to manipulate matter (and others) but ultimately that is just another tool that can be used with either good or bad intention. Spend that energy in getting to know who you really are and in loving yourself. In my opinion this is the best use of your time. Don’t be afraid of being alone from time to time. This is an opportunity to work on yourself without interruptions.

  1. Lovely to read this, Nancy–and I notice that the astrology was carefully sidestepped here too (giggle). I left the business world 20 some years ago and became a professional astrologer. The first year I said I was “on sabbatical” but as the second year began I realized I couldn’t go back. I’m sure you went thru a Pluto experience forcing you to redefine yourself, and honestly, that’s what it takes–something that makes you KNOW that whatever you’ve been doing in your life can’t continue, so you start by asking lots of questions about who you are and what matters. Thank you so much for showing “the next stage” to all of us. (Anne Beversdorf, http://www.stariel.com)

  2. This interview came at a critical time for me in my remote view practice.
    In tears … Grateful.
    With a renewed confidence to move forward….
    Thank you.
