What is scanning?
Simply put, scanning is the act of getting info through a magickal act. Not very clear, I know, but scanning is probably not the best tool to gather information.
What do I need to do it?
Practice. Practice. Practice.
Is this the same as remote vision?
How do I scan?
Relax. If you can into trance, do it. Focus on what you’re going to scan, usually a person. You can do this through the internet, with a picture, in person, sitting in your house and focusing in someone you personally know.
Say to yourself: the information that will come is true. And something will come.
When I started, I used to practice with a friend. She would give me pictures and what happened was that the colors changed in intensity, revealing shapes. I got info on my first couple of days, by finding her spirit patron. Problem is, she had to explained it to me, otherwise I wouldn’t have known what I was seeing. Or what’s the same, I was a neanderthal contemplating a laptop.
So, not very practical. But the more you do it the better you’ll get at it. Keep doing it for a significant amount of time and you may be able to get something good of it.
There is people that swears this is a very good method to get information. I disagree.
