Joe McMoneagle Bio

Here’s a link to a short business bio on Joe McMoneagle who is one of the people on the “Explorers” page of this site.

Here is a passage from that bio (his site also has a personal bio as well):

With a career spanning 34 years, Mr. McMoneagle has provided professional support to the Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, Drug Enforcement Agency, Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Customs, the National Security Council, and most major command within the Department of Defense. Twenty of those years have been within paranormal operations, as viewer No. 001 (372).

He continues his work in the paranormal with the company Cognitive Sciences Lab which, he says is, “…continuing to dig very deeply into the mystery behind psychic functioning and other paranormal phenomena.”

The Gateway Experience – It’s not all about OBEs

History of The Gateway Experience

obeThe Gateway Experience, for at-home use, came from the Gateway Voyage program, which was developed back in the 70’s by Robert Monroe, and is still offered at The Monroe Institute today. Many people were attracted to this program and you can read about many of them in this blog.

This group included some of the leading minds and participants in the military’s remote viewing program as well as members of the US Army’s Intelligence and Security Command under the command of MG Bert Stubblebine. But, it also attracted many people who were just interested in exploring deeper aspects of themselves. Continue reading

Are OOBEs Sacrilegious?

What does the Bible say about OOBE?

OOBEIn my research for this blog, I recently ran across a TV interview with a Christian pastor who was asked about OOBEs. I found his reply quite interesting in the way he separated what he considered to be “of God” and what was not.

He began by referring to several books of the Bible like Isaiah, Ezekiel and John’s Revelations. He spoke about the visions that these prophets had had and the fact that they seemed to have been in an out-of-body state when they received this information. Continue reading

Your Personal Journey

The Gateway Experiencee offers you many things along its path of self revelation. But the journey, no matter how it evolves, will always and forever be Your Personal Journey.

How you use the tools provided by the Experience is up to you. What areas you choose to explore will be up to you. How far you take yourself of this journey will be up to you.

But, you will not be the first to have embarked on this adventure. Many thousands of others have gone this way, leaving a clearly trodden path before you.

But each of us will perceive the path differently and we will take different side roads. We will stop at different places along the way to rest or to admire the view. We will all see the sunrises and sunsets, but they will be seen differently by all of us.

Take this journey as an adventurer. Take it as an explorer. Take it for yourself, and take it for your loved ones, your families, your friends. For you will return changed. You will return renewed. You will return evolved.

Is a Near Death Experience a type of OOBE?

Are OOBE and NDE the Same?

Although we tend to separate out-of-body-experiences (OOBE) from near-death-experiences(NDE), they do have some similarities. The most obvious is that the person who has gone through an NDE almost always, at some time in the experience, views their physical body from a remote location.

In classical cases of NDEs during emergency medical procedures, the remote location may be no further away than the ceiling of the OP, but the distance is tangible. In an NDE, people report hearing conversations of people who are in the proximity of the body and they are able to remember them word-for-word when they “return”.

In an OOBE, people also report hearing conversations of people they are observing from their remote location and finding later that the conversation took place just as they “heard” it while out of their bodies.

We‘ve run across a fascinating description of an NDE in this video and hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did.

Have you had either an OOBE or an NDE? Want to share your experiences with us and our readers? We look forward to it.

Rosie McKnight and the Gateway Voyage

Rosie McKnight was in the right place at the right time when she met Bob Monroe and found herself experimenting in what was later to develop into the Gateway Voyage and then the Gateway Experience.

She was, like all Bob Monroe’s explorers, open to the idea of exploring areas outside “normal” consciousness.

And that is the journey we call The Gateway Experience.

Listen to Rosie talk about some of her experiences. and then read more about her as one of The Explorers.


By her own admission, Rosalind A. McKnight just happened to be “at the right place, at the right time.” That is how she recalls when her long association with famed out-of-body researcher Robert Monroe began.

She had already graduated from Manchester College in Indiana, where she had majored in Peace Studies and Sociology and then had earned her Mastery of Divinity degree at the prestigious Union Theological Seminary in New York City.

At age 25, with an inquisitive mind and a exploratory nature, she sought a new challenge in her life when she moved from New York to the state of Virginia.

Soon she met Robert Monroe which led to a new a whole dimension of exploration for her. For eleven years, from 1972 to 1983, she worked in the early days at the Monroe Institute® (TMI), doing extensive research in the laboratory into the vast non-physical dimensions of consciousness.

She helped significantly to further the understanding of human consciousness and to demonstrate, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that we are more than our physical bodies. She became known as one of Robert Monroe’s “explorers”.

As a practical man, Mr. Monroe was resistant to using anything but scientific principles and data for his research. This is where Rosalind McKnight became most important by offering her spiritual perspective, as way to counter-balance their work together. She has said often they were a good team.

While at the same time working at the Monroe Institute®, Rosalind McKnight was a part-time instructor at Blue Ridge Community College, Central Virginia Community College, and Virginia Western Community College. She taught courses in extrasensory perception (ESP), parapsychology, and death and dying.

She also founded the Creative Living Institute and became its director, sponsoring conferences and seminars throughout Virginia on various personal growth topics

Her initial book, “Cosmic Journeys: My Out-Of-Body Explorations with Robert A. Monroe”, published in 1999, is the result of her years of pioneering research work with Robert Monroe. It was not until after his death in 1995, that she felt compelled to write her own series of books.

Rosie, as she prefers to be called, published her second and latest book, “Soul Journeys: My Guided Tours through the Afterlife” in 2004.

Here she shares her explorations of non-human energy systems, interactions with highly evolved beings, concepts about the makeup of the many levels of the universe, views of the afterlife and the animal dimensions, the nature of healing and guidance, a look at the future, and much more.

“My key is joy. One of my (spiritual) guides gave me this affirmation,” Rosie McKnight explains. “I am light, manifested in love, expressed in joy, joy, joy: we come from the light dimension (which is God’s dimension), and then we manifest into this Earth through love, and then we express ourselves here through joy.”

Somewhere, perhaps in some other dimension, Robert Monroe must be quite proud of his protégé, Rosalind A. McKnight, who passed this plane on February 11, 2010.

Joe McMoneagle – Remote Viewing

Joe McMoneagle had a near death experience as a soldier and, as many NDE-ers say, that changed his life.

He became one of Bob Monroe’s Explorers and went on to use remote viewing commercially. He describes that in his fascinating book “Mind Trek”.

He talks about some of that here:


Joseph McMoneagle has the distinction of being the first person enlisted into the top secret military program known as the STARGATE Project that began operation in October 1978. As one of the US military’s top psychic spies, he became “Remote Viewer 001.”

The STARGATE Project was the military’s initial experimentation of using remote viewing for intelligence gathering and data collection. Other prominent members and fellow explorers of that project have included Skip Atwater and David Morehouse.

As a result of a number of strange episodes in his life including a life altering near-death experience, a UFO sighting and numerous spontaneous out of body episodes (OBE’s), Joseph McMoneagle became aware of his intuitive abilities and developed the skills of remote viewing. In fact, the unusual psychic gifts he possessed, ran within his family lineage.

He described his near-death experience in 1970 while in the Army as “a spiritual epiphany” which resulted in awakening to the realization that he no longer needed to fear death.

It was this unique case history that caught the attention of the Army Security Agency and he was recruited to work on classified assignments as a remote viewer.

“They sent me to Stanford Research Institute and had me tested. And I turned out to be an excellent remote viewer,” Mr. McMoneagle explains.

Following his retirement from the US Army, he maintained a close association with the STARGATE Project through his own company, Intuitive Intelligence Applications, Inc. which he has operated for the last 33 years.

In the 1980’s, Mr. McMoneagle trained with Robert Monroe using the Hemi-Sync® methodology to hone his psychic skills. Through his close association with the Monroe Institute®, he eventually met his wife, Nancy Honeycutt, who is a stepdaughter of Robert Monroe.

During his fascinating career, Mr. McMoneagle has provided professional support to numerous agencies, including the CIA, NSA, Defense Intelligence Agency, DEA, Secret Service, FBI, U.S. Customs, the National Security Council, and most major commands within the Department of Defense. For twenty years he has provided paranormal intelligence as a remote viewer.

To date, he has authored four books which include:

•”The Ultimate Time Machine: A Remote Viewer’s Perception of Time and Predictions for the New Millennium”

•”Remote Viewing Secrets: A Handbook”; “Mind Trek: Exploring Consciousness, Time, and Space Through Remote Viewing”

•”Memoirs of a Psychic Spy: The Remarkable Life of U.S. Government Remote Viewer 001″, also titled “The Stargate Chronicles: Memoirs of Psychic Spy” in the hardcover edition.

•The Stargate Chronicles

He has also built an impressive portfolio of working with various companies seeking natural gas, oil, mineral deposits, gold, and platinum. In addition, he has assisted with numerous missing person cases in Washington, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Japan.

Mr. McMoneagle has appeared often on numerous Japanese television programs that have attempted to locate missing persons and he has actually found ten to date. He has demonstrated his remote viewing skills a total of 150 times on live TV around the world to prove the validity of psychic powers.

Joseph McMoneagle has been honored with 28 military decorations and a number of distinguished awards from the US government. He is a man who has a dedicated passion for his work and a tireless service to others.

Remote Viewing – Courtney Brown

Dr. Courtney Brown Using Remote Viewing in ScienceCan a mathematician be interested in remove viewing?

As i read through Courtney Brown’s bio the first time, I was impressed with the fact that this man is a hard core mathematician. Dr. Brown is a professor of Mathematics and a social scientist who teaches in the Department of Political Science at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

He received his Ph.D. degree from Washington University (St. Louis) in 1982 in political science with an emphasis on mathematical modeling.

Many people think of remote viewing either as some sort of secret CIA or military program that has supposedly been debunked, or a some sort of esoteric fantasy.

So what would attract someone like Dr. Brown to remote viewing and what does he actually think it is?


Dr. Courtney Brown, PhD, is an explorer who continuously seeks to push the boundaries of remote viewing‘s capabilities and potentialities. He is a dedicated and driven researcher focused on how remote viewing can peer into our future, as well as, into parallel universes that may be existing simultaneously to our own.

He has conducted a number of experiments in which he has attempted to prove that we live in a world of multiple universes where a different reality can exist with very different outcomes, and thus, very different futures. And to that end, he believes that remote viewing proves, beyond question, that the theory of differing future and past time lines is not just science fiction.

“Remote viewing is a tool that we use to explore questions relating to consciousness and existence. Contributing to the science of consciousness through investigations into the remote-viewing phenomenon is the primary goal for our path of service,” he writes of his work.

Dr. Brown is a professor of Mathematics and a social scientist who teaches in the Department of Political Science at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

He received his Ph.D. degree from Washington University (St. Louis) in 1982 in political science with an emphasis on mathematical modeling.

He began his teaching career as a college calculus instructor in Africa before moving on to teach nonlinear differential and difference equation modeling in the social sciences at the University of California at Los Angeles, Emory University, and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research Summer Program at the University of Michigan.

He has published numerous books on applied nonlinear mathematical modeling in the social sciences, including two new volumes, one on applied differential equation systems (2007) and another on graph algebra (2008), a new graphical language used for modeling systems.

He also has an interest in political music, and has recently published a book on the subject. Independent of his work as a college professor, he is the Director and founder of The Farsight Institute (, a nonprofit research and educational organization dedicated to the study of a phenomenon of nonlocal consciousness known as “remote viewing.”

He recently published a book titled “Remote Viewing: The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception.” In this book he analyzes data and develops a new theory that explains the remote-viewing phenomenon as a consequence of superposition formation on the quantum level.

Dr. Courtney Brown has authored many additional books and here are some of his more relevant ones:

• Cosmic Explorers: Scientific Remote Viewing, Extraterrestrials, and a Message for Mankind

• Cosmic Voyage: True Evidence of Extraterrestrials Visiting Earth
