Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Dec 6, 2020

#148 This week, my amazing guest is Paul Smith. Paul started his career with remote viewing as, in his words, a psychic spy for the American military in 1983, and is now the longest serving controlled remote viewing teacher active today. During our very interesting and informative conversation, we talked about remote viewing, its nature, and its history. Paul talks to us about his journey with remote viewing and working as a psychic spy for the military.

I hope that listening to our conversation makes you realize just how vast the spectrum of our minds’ abilities is and how we can do anything we wish if we, quite literally, put our minds to it. I know that for me, listening to the stories of people like Paul is really inspiring and makes me realize how we are truly so much more than we give ourselves credit for.

About Paul: Paul Smith is the longest serving controlled remote viewing (CRV) teacher active today, having begun his career as an instructor in 1984. He served for seven years in the government’s Star Gate remote viewing program at Ft. Meade, MD (from September 1983 to August 1990). Starting in 1984, he became one of only five Star Gate personnel to be personally trained as remote viewers by the legendary founders of remote viewing, Ingo Swann and Dr. Harold E. Puthoff at SRI-International.

Paul was the primary author of the government RV program’s CRV training manual and served as theory instructor for new CRV trainee personnel, as well as source recruiting officer, unit security officer, and unit historian. He went on to teach controlled remote viewing to such well-known remote viewing personalities as Lyn Buchanan, Mel Riley and David Morehouse.  Paul is credited with over a thousand training and operational remote viewing sessions during his time with Star Gate.
