A remote viewing session is usually a teamwork of two people, the monitor and the viewer. The monitor provides the coordinates, monitors the viewer to ensure that the viewer remains in the specified flow structure of the RV protocol, records relevant session information, provides the viewer with appropriate feedback – if necessary – and provides objective analytical support for the viewer as far as this is necessary.
RV sessions carried out without a monitor, i.e. only through the viewer, are called “solo sessions”. If the viewer does not know the target, valid data can also be obtained here in individual cases, especially in the case of so-called ARV targets, which are only processed up to Stage IV.
Excerpt from the original CRV manual by Paul H. Smith:
The individual who assists the viewer in a remote viewing session. The monitor provides the coordinate, observes the viewer to help insure he stays in proper structure (discussed below), records relevant session information, provides appropriate feedback when required, and provides objective analytic support to the viewer as necessary. The monitor plays an especially important role in training beginning viewers.
