• Learning to Scanby ShadowRain
    Explains why scanning is important to learn, goes over the theory behind scanning subtle energy, and defines related terms. Includes sets of exercises that start from square one and build on each other, from learning to sense energy, learning to sense constructs, scanning things in the same room as well as those in remote locations, scanning using coordinates, and retroscanning.

Most of the exercises in this guide are structured so that results can be verified even if one does not have a partner.
  • The Art of Scanningby Felidae
    Explains how what is perceived by scanning is interpreted in different ways by one’s brain, and how this can result in scanning being different for everyone. Describes some basic exercises including simple Coordinate Remote Viewing and shield scanning. Addresses common issues with scanning including difficulty scaling, not being able to “see” anything, analytic overlay (AOL), and too much information. Also includes a list of some common types of scanning including field scanning, telepathic scanning, systems scanning, and tech scanning.

  • Awareness and Sensitivityby Intrepid
    Clarifies the difference between awareness (to have knowledge of or notice something) and sensitivity (to be affected by something), and how identifying one’s baseline levels of each is useful. Recommends practicing awareness of the extent of one’s physical senses and how much the mind filters out. Describes how to get an idea of one’s sensitivity by noting changes in one’s reactions, whether physical or emotional. Discusses working with sub-conscious to develop sensitivity.
  • Rudimentary Scanningby Jaci

  • Energy Sensingby Winged Wolf
    The way the brain interprets subtle energy sensing depends on the person, but sensing subtle energy can be developed with practice. Scanning energy is different that probing with empathy or telepathy; however, care should still be taken to not actively scan another person without permission. Includes methods for scanning and suggestions for practice.
  • Constructs for Noobsby Rainsong

Warns against using psi in ways that could ruin your reputation or those of psions in general.
  • How to NOT Practice Psiby Kobok
    Explains how some techniques for learning to make psiballs encourage biofeedback rather than actual energy manipulation, how using your hands when practicing psychokinesis can prevent you from developing actual control over the ability, and how frontloading during scanning practice can result in analytic overlay instead of accurate results. Recommends practice that can be objectively verified.
  • Constructs for Newbiesby Lesenthe
    A very thorough and well written article which focuses primarily on the practical, but also discusses some theories which explain what is encountered in practice. Introduces and discusses constructs, subtle energy, programming, sentient constructs, and thoughtforms. Explains how to begin to sense energy, via visualization and tactile/spatial awareness, so that you can know when you’ve actually succeeded in creating a construct. Includes an excellent description of how visualization works to help learn to manipulate energy. Explains the importance of mental discipline and how to practice via focal meditation, blank-mind states, and visualization. Recommends exercises for learning to control energy. Walks through the method for creating a construct in detail (planning the complete construct blueprint, externalizing the blueprint in energetic form, and then energizing the blueprint), and sources of energy for powering the construct, also touching on the links between programmer and construct, and between construct and energy source. Devotes special attention to the human energy body and briefly introduces planar theory. Contrasts the author’s method of programming with the method commonly taught in the OEC, and explains why shelling is unnecessary. Touches on what kinds of things can be perceived in a construct and how to examine them closely to improve your skill. Overviews several types of constructs such as shields and wards, guardian constructs, and constructs that influence the physical plane.
