Universal Mind is known in the literature by many names. Some call it the Collective Subconcious, Psi-field, Global mind, Cosmic mind, Space-Time Unit(STU), the Akashic records. All these names refer to something that a person can ‘connect’ to in order to receive information that cannot be reached in any known way.
The information can be virtually anything, related to any person at any place and time. It is possible to see other places (Remote Viewing), to see events in the lives of people, diagnose health problem from a distance and more. I have seen distance diagnosing either using visualization or using biolocation technique.
How can the information be accessed?
Of course, this is the most intriguing question. In fact, there’s a good chance that you have been ‘connected’ to the Universal Mind in your life and received information from it, usually in the form of telepathy. Most probably, you weren’t even aware of the fact and the information was presented to your conscious mind as a thought or a feeling.
For example, you suddenly remembered that you forgot something at a friends house that you left 10 minutes ago, and seconds later you receive a call from him where he tells exactly what you recalled just moment ago. What has happened is that when your friend calls you, he already "sends" the information into the Universal Mind and you receive it instantly and see it as a recall. In this example the connection to the information is made by the subconscious mind, both yours and your friend’s. That’s why some call it ‘Collective Subconscious’.
But wouldn’t you want to have a more direct access to the information? Well, some people have the ability to see places, diseases and events consciously from birth. If you’re not of the lucky ones (like most of us), then you need to learn and practice some of the techniques that allow some access to the Universal Mind. These techniques include Jose Silva Ultra Mind method, where one learns how to enter an alpha state where the subconscious mind is more active and can be controlled more directly. This can be used for remote viewing both into events, possible events and remote diagnosing and healing. Other techniques may include more traditional meditation, yoga development and opening your third eye (6th chakra). There are several Remote Viewing techniques, like Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV), Technical Remote Viewing (TRV) and other.
Still, most of these techniques require entering some altered state, but in a controlled manner, where the subconscious mind can be directed to a specific information and it can be recorded in the conscious memory.
