I first met Walter in 1995 at a Whole Health Expo in the Boston area and began to attend weekly meetings of the Intuitive Research Group that he co-led for about two years.   One thing that stands out is how Walter's special ability to focus and amplify energy helped me to feel energy consciously, and made the energy real to me, not just theoretical.   I also became aware that energy typically has a very subtle feeling.   I remember how Walter used to say “Pay attention!” a lot when he worked with me.

From a long-time Friend

I have known Walter for almost 25 years.   Besides being the most interesting person in the world, he has contributed to my health, well-being and personal growth.   That I can consciously guide my energies as well as communicate with my subconscious are two highlights of what Walter has taught me.   I am particularly grateful that he shared with me the importance of laughter.

I wanted to write you and tell you that I found our moment together at Town Day valuable.   I came home and did a treatment with a client and came into it having had some thoughts and inspiration for a new direction as a way of working.   It was very intriguing.   I know that something important was opened and revealed to me that day, and I thank you for your important part in getting that started!

From a Workshop Attendee

It was an amazing workshop and I had so much fun.   After I learned how to go into a hologram in my brain, I checked the house I was born and lived in until I was eight-or-nine months old.   I was exactly right in what I saw today.   My parents got shocked because we never spoke about this home and I was so young when we moved from this house.   There might be some pictures of this house but nothing showing the whole inside of the house.   Thank you so much for this incredible experience.

From Walter, I learned how to work with energy, how energy behaves (haha, or doesn't), how to be angry, how to laugh, how little tiny microadjustments or gestures can shift energy, and much more—probably too much to list here.

I used to always get caught up in other people's emotions/energy and that happens less now.   As a result of studying with Walter, I now have techniques for stepping back and watching what is happening instead of getting caught up in it.   In regard to how I apply what I have learned from Walter, I am still with my husband, so I think I apply a lot of what I learned on a daily basis.   I also am still employed at my job, which also is likely because of the skills I learned from Walter!

I've been involved with Walter since 2010, through his Energy Group/Workshops, and also as a performer in four different presentations of Energy Theater.   I don't know that I ever really expressed my gratitude for all Walter has taught me.   I think that so much of the work Walter does is stuff other healers/energy workers would charge a lot of money to learn and you taught us for free.   I think Walter's teachings are more practical, accessible and relevant than a lot of others out there, even the “famous” ones.

I first met Walter at a workshop he gave at the Theosophical Society back in the 1990s.   He told me about the Energy Group that meets at his house, and I started attending.   Since then I've attended many of his regular groups, and also at least four specialized workshops he presented.   I noticed the ease with which visions and energy experiences occurred in the group, less so without the group.   But that ease eventually began to happen on my own.

From Walter I learned that Energy is intelligent and is like an information-sharing system, and that Energy itself can be studied for practical applications.   That Energy is impersonal and works best if I, too, am impersonal.   That Energy creates what we direct it to create, either consciously or unconsciously.   That usually Energy follows directions but can also be an initiator of our experience.   That there is a sensing energy that can be sent on information-gathering missions.   That Energy stimulating parts of the brain opens our visual, imaginative centers.   Previously, I had learned the virtue of being impersonal but I never saw it modeled until Walter.   From Walter I learned to become more impersonal in a good way.

It is not often one meets a clairvoyant as accomplished and advanced as Walter.   I've known Walter since 2014.   I've attended many Energy Groups and workshops with him since I met him.   Through Walter and his energy groups and workshops, I have developed facility with energy awareness:   perceiving/sensing energy, traveling energetically, dramatically enhancing my psychic/clairvoyant capabilities, and more.   Working with “sensing energy,” “informative touch,” “traveling” and “soul journeying” to name a few, were all introduced to me by Walter, as were many other related techniques.  

Apprenticing with Walter has improved and enhanced my life immeasurably.   Facility moving in and interacting with the energy level of being is profoundly life-changing.   It changes one's perspective in all things, for all time.   Above all, there is the freedom to create according to one's choosing, moment to moment.   Energy awareness and use of Walter's techniques have also enhanced my energy work practice, to the benefit of my Reiki clientele.

It has been a great privilege to train with him, and now to participate in furthering “the work” through our continued collaboration/exploration.   Walter is a living treasure—a bottomless font of wisdom and stories, a bodhisattva of sorts, in Buddhist terms:   a master teacher living among us, freely sharing from his wealth of experience and understanding for the benefit of all.

From an Energy Student

I met Walter in 1996 and I've studied energy with him for several years.   From Walter I learned how to be aware of energy, how other people's energies affect me, and how to work with it so that I avoid or lessen the effect of other people's negative energies on me.   I use what I've learned almost daily, to be able to have more positive relationships with others.   This work has had a very positive effect on my life, particularly when I was in a very difficult work situation.

Here's a story about how I used a technique that we developed in our Energy Study Group called “Show me.”   (You say “Show me” when you are requesting the answer to some intuitive question.)   I love kayaking in the ocean.   One day out at sea, the wind became strong and the sea waves got big.   I started paddling toward the shore, but before I could reach land, the condition got worse, and no matter how hard I paddled I could not get the kayak to move.   In desperation I exclaimed, “Show me how to make the kayak go forward!” and in response I heard the words, “Adjust the angle of your paddle.”   I changed the angle and as I rowed the kayak began to move.   Once my panic subsided, I looked around and discovered that I was not in danger, because there were many other boats within view that could have come to my rescue.   (Walter says that this incident could be called a “setup.”   In a setup, you are put in a difficult situation so you can learn from it that life can be different than you thought at first.)

Knowing Walter has had a very positive effect on my life, not just from working in Energy Groups with him, but also through his Laughter Club gatherings.   He brings humor to any situation!

Walter has been part of my practice in centering, being and working in the moment, in body, mind, and spirit.   I first met Walter in the 1980s, when he was in a group Performance Art presentation at the Federal Reserve Bank.   Since then I've done a few years working with him intensively in his weekly Energy Groups.   I still try to drop in from time to time and while also continuing my own work.   I've learned from Walter that you can actively support each other in meditation and the exploration of body, mind, and spirit, and that this can be done in small and larger groups to great effect.

From a long-time Energy Student

Walter introduced me to Energy Awareness.   Before I met him I always shied away from people who even talked about “vibes.”   Walter helped me see the Energy as the source of all wisdom, love, creativity, peace, and joy.   All life is Energy.   Walter opened the door to the whole thing for me.  

I first met Walter around 2001, when he was leading a Spiritual Support Group for the Unemployed.   In this group we used Walter's energy techniques and other original practices he had developed, and everyone in the group found new jobs pretty quickly!   After that, I've attended many of Walter's Energy Groups and Workshops.   Physically, we've worked together, on and off for more than 15 years.   Our connection on the Energy Level has been constant.

Walter is a brilliant researcher, innovator, and teacher of Energy.   He has enlightened many to this important lens through which to understand the universe.   In addition, Walter is a creative dynamo in many fields including writing, theatre and education.   He's a very special guy who always has lots of cool ideas and makes them happen.

I first meet Walter in 1998 through Linda, an artist I met at Boston Open Studios.   I loved her art installation and she told me she did energy readings and worked with reading the energy of plants, and that she was learning about this in Walter's Energy Workshops.   Through Linda I attended an Energy Group with Walter, and I was hooked from the start as the information came very easily to me, made so much sense and was so different than anything I had ever come across.

From 1998-2000 I worked with Walter whenever I could.   There were times I was at his Energy Groups every week and other times once a month.   In 2000 my family and I moved to France.   Even in France I have stayed in touch with Walter, and have had wonderful exchanges with him through e-mails to help decipher energy phenomena that have happened to me.

Working with Walter has allowed me to find peace, joy and exhilaration.   His work provides actual tools to assist people.   You walk away with the opportunity to have a huge tool chest to fill with practical exercises that can be done anywhere at anytime and with anyone.   It should be taught in schools!!!   Learning to ask the correct questions is a huge part of understanding the dynamics of Walter's work.   This discipline helps in all facets of life.

I have learned many things from Walter—too much to write, but I will give it a go.   I have learned that energy is FAST and requires patience and attention to understand its inner workings.   Everything possesses energy and sensing its vibration can assist us in understanding ourselves, others and our world around us.   Blocks can easily be rerouted, understood and dissolved with proper focus, understanding and attention.   A block does not mean forever, simply temporary.   If I pay attention to others or to the things around me, I get what I need.   For instance if I really need to buy a succulent piece of fruit, I will find it working with Walter's applications.   If I need to interpret a situation or person's intention, I can gain better understanding using his techniques.   I can sense myself on a very deep level.   With that, I gain insight that would be out of the scope of other senses.

As a result of working with Walter, I feel more secure in what I was sensing in the unseen world.   I have always been intuitive, but with doubt.   Self-doubt cripples.   Working with Walter has allowed me to TRUST myself more.   I can not think of a better gift one can bestow on another.  

I treasure Walter and all I have learned with him.   Somehow I feel even with the Atlantic Ocean between us, he always had my back.   Energy knows no limitations.   It's something you can do with another person without being in their presence.   You realize how infinite you and another are, yet how connected you can be.   I wish Walter's information was welcomed and understood by the mainstream.

Matthew W.

When I was in a potentially catastrophic situation with the court system, Walter helped me envision a positive outcome that became reality.

In the early 2000s I found myself with a new job in a new city.   A month after arriving, I was profiled by a police officer as being a skinhead.   (Unbenownst to me, I was in a neighborhood notorious for neo-Nazis.)   Though I have always found white supremacy abhorrent, I have an auto-immune condition that kills my hair before it has a chance to grow out of my scalp.   I can understand why the officer jumped to conclusions, but I was shocked when this officer handcuffed me, tackled me to the ground, then slammed my face against the pavement several times, bruising and cutting my face.   I groaned in pain while he began to concoct a report on the hood of his cruiser.   Eventually he called for a subordinate to pick me up so he could finish his report, and I was sent to a large metropolitan county jail for five days.

After lawyering up, I was offered a misdemeanor plea, down from the original felony charge.   I would not accept this, telling my lawyer I would let a jury hear the officer's explanation about how the bruises got on my face.   Apparently the officer submitted two different reports about what happened, because his original report had no explanation for the head bruises and lacerations that were apparent in my mug shot, while his second report included new or altered details about why he bothered me in the first place.

My lawyer said that juries tend to give cops the benefit of the doubt in “He said/She said” situations, so I took an enormous risk in forfeiting an offer of probation and fines for potentially serious time in jail, where from my five days in jail I discovered the accused are treated like little more than dangerous chattel and forced to live in a dehumanizing environment where most guards took pleasure in tormenting suspects.   I had constant anxiety attacks and the personal toll this took on me and my job was enormous.

I was desperate.   Then one of my relatives who studies energy connected me with Walter Ness, and I worked with Walter over the telephone for three to four sessions of half-an-hour to one hour each.

From the beginning I appreciated Walter's tranquil, soothing voice.   He had me relax into a state of mind that I would call a focused trance.   The best way I can describe what he did was give me a rehearsal for the future I wanted.   He had me picture as vividly as possible the courtroom where all was to be decided, asking me what I saw.   [ Over the phone, Walter was instructing Matthew how to create a three-dimensional hologram in his mind of his upcoming court session.]   The most curious detail of the vision I saw in the trance was that the judge in my case had a shock of white hair and was wearing a purple robe.   I always picture judges in black, so this is the detail that sticks out.   Walter also had me cultivate a benign, even loving relationship with everyone present in my vision—judges, officials, even the police officer who beat me.   The vision ended with the judge simply dismissing my case.

The vision Walter walked me through gave me a sense of relief, even though part of me wondered if it wasn't just a projection of my deepest desires.   I drew a sketch of myself leaving the courtroom with my arms in the air in victory.

On the court date, the judge arrived.   The first thing I notice about this judge was his robe—It was purple!   And he was an older man with the white hair I had seen in my vision.   Then the judge simply dismissed my case—it would never even go to trial.   The officer was not charged with any wrongdoing, but his humiliation was enough for me then, and today I honestly wish he has found happiness, wherever he is.

I am forever grateful to Walter for being a kind voice during a time when a horrible cloud of suspicion hung over me.   Of course, he was more than that.   He helped me either see the future or create it—to this day I am not sure.   I do know that typically the odds of beating the charges against me, let alone having them dismissed, were as low as they come.   But I was free to restart my life across the country, leaving the episode behind me.

I am proud to testify to Walter's amazing talents.   He also has a quality essential to any spiritual teacher of any true value—humility.   I am not sure whether he would say he played a role in delivering me from potential catastrophe, or really just empowered me to do so for myself.

Walter is an amazing visionary and deeply caring individual, with demonstrated ability to radically help clients heal their lives in powerful ways.   From Walter I learned how through deep mindfulness we may create amazing miracles of awareness and healing.  

Walter and I were housemates for two-and-a-half years in the early 1980's.   We created a profoundly cosmic, spiritual household and made many amazing discoveries together about energy awareness and healing.

It was so exciting for me to discover that we are both healers.   Walter discovered subtle energy and meridian awareness before moving in to brain function.   At the same time through our work together, I discovered that I could visually see the chakras or life energy centers.   What exciting joint discoveries, which have graced our lives since then.   After I moved out, we continued to work together with energy healing for a few years and have been in touch since, comparing notes.   I feel gratitude that Walter remains a dear friend and comrade completely committed to individual healing and empowerment.   I love Walter's enthusiasm for healing and making a positive difference in people's lives, and I a ppreciate the awesome work Walter continues to do in the healing realm.  

I've applied what I learned from Walter in many areas of my life.   Our work together helped me create a private practice in life-coaching via chakra healing.   I've also taught workshops about this material.  

My favorite story is when we ran our Healing Circle together back in the 80's when we were roommates.   At that time we had a very mystical healing cat who loved to meditate.   In one group there were six of us men, with one woman on the floor who we were sending energy to.   We tuned in and saw that she had some blockages in her genital area.   Not one of us was willing to lay hands on or over that region of her body, out of respect.   Just as we became aware of this block and silently asked together “Now what?" our cat came in from two rooms away, walked through our circle and lay directly on the woman's body, on the afflicted spot.   The cat looked up at us with a grin, and the woman continued to lie on the floor, totally blissed out.

I also dearly remember our annual mid-winter talent show parties at or apartment.   We packed that apartment with up to 25 people, and the display of talent in all genres was stunning.

In June 2016 I saw one of Walter's tapings about Chi-energy on our local Community Access TV station, and I reached out to him via e-mail, as I found the topic to be very interesting.   When I met Walter, I explained to him that my mother had some psychic abilities (i.e. she knows the phone will ring before it actually does) and I wanted to further explore some psychic gifts of my own.   Since then I have worked with Walter about two times per month for over a year.

From working with Walter, I've learned that a necessary part of human evolution is the existence of an intelligent force constantly testing every one of us, under all imaginable situations.   Many of us find ourselves stuck in unwanted thoughts and situations, yet wonder how it happened to us.   I've experienced how the more we are able to manipulate the energy around us, the less it will manipulate or “bully” us.

I also learned that we can run various kinds of positive energy patterns to offset the negative ones that have attached to us.   Already, my sessions with Walter have helped me develop a strong general understanding of various energy patterns (fear, humor vs. serious, beauty, strength/warrior, depressive), and some of the tools for manipulating these patterns to achieve effective results.   I'm also learning that you can more effectively manipulate energy by remaining “impartial”; to avoid getting caught up in psychodrama from the bombardment of universal tests.   For example, by saying “I don't care” means you have no investment in a particular outcome but your intent remains, so that it turns out in the very best possible way.

I have applied what I have learned in many ways.   For example, Walter taught me that as individuals we simply don't have all the answers to the phenomena that surround us, so it is important to run the energy pattern of someone else who has a clearer understanding.   One night, I was having one of my terrifying paralyzing dreams (that I've had for years) and within the dream, I decided to ask myself “What would Walter do?” and I immediately began feeling at ease.   I was no longer in a state of fear, I faced it head-on and that's when the energy started working with me instead of what seemed like against me.

Walter's influence has also helped me to tap into a dream that I have had for years, which is to write comedy.   He's given me the opportunity to combine my writing background with what I am learning about the phenomena of energy and ways to manipulate it in order to create comedy.
