Telekinesis – Moving an Object With Your Mind
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could simply will an object to move? You’re with your family at the dinner table and you use your mind to move the pepper shaker slide across the table without even touching it. Chances are your family would be quite impressed and perhaps even a little freaked out.
The ability to move an object with just the mind’s intent is called telekinesis. Also called psychokinesis, this psychic ability has been tested by many scientists and paranormal investigators over the years. You’ve probably seen telekinesis in action while you were watching a movie or television show in the past. Horror movies sometimes have characters that use this type of psychic power. Many wonder if they are able to move objects solely with their intent. While it’s not an easy thing to do, it is possible.
The history of telekinesis
Back in the 1800’s telekinesis was coined largely by the Spiritualists who would hold séances. During some of the séances, objects would move or float in the air, certainly getting everyone’s attention. Many people believed that telekinesis was occurring, but it was later revealed that it was all a hoax. Turns out that the psychics were tricking people during the séances. In fact, Harry Houdini, who as a magician, wrote a book called “Miracle Mongers and Their Methods” exposing some of the false mediums.
Telekinesis has gained a little better recognition since then and there have been various psychics who have made good money off of their claims to be telekinetic. You may have heard of Uri Geller in the 70’s, who made millions of dollars claiming that he could use his mind to bend spoons and fix broken watches. Though there were many skeptics, there were a solid number of people who believed that Geller could indeed move matter with his mind.
Does it really work?
There’s no scientific proof that telekinesis is real, but there’s also no proof that it’s all fake either. There has been a lot of research on the topic, even by the government, but no one person stands out as being able to move objects with his mind regularly. These days, not as many psychics are claiming that they have telekinesis abilities, but the topic is still studied and tried often.
Dr. Robert G. Jahn, retired researcher from Princeton University, believes that telekinesis is quite real, as he studied the topic for 25 years. He conducted many experiments through the years, interested in seeing just how the mind could influence the environment. He used machines called Random Event Generators (REGS) to see if his participants could influence the numbers that would come out of the machines with just their thoughts. Though the results only showed a tiny effect, still the evidence was promising.
Dr. Roger Nelson from the Global Consciousness Project took Jahn’s results and build upon them on a global scale. Nelson placed 70 REGS around the world and continually measures the effects of people’s mindsets in relation to things that occur in the world. For example, when major events occur, such as Princess Diana’s death, the measurements would increase significantly, indicating that mass consciousness and intention can make a difference.
How to practice telekinesis?
If you want to practice telekinesis, take some time regularly to get in a meditative state and focus all of your attention on an object you’d like to see moved. It will take a great deal of intent and energy in order for this to happen. Much of the time, people who try this tend to grow frustrated when they do not see results right away. Try not to grow weary in your attempts at telekinesis, as it will take time and practice in order to see any results.
Still, you may not ever see results and know that that’s alright too. There are many psychic gifts that you can learn to flow in, so do not be hard on yourself if telekinesis is not one of them. But should you succeed in mastering this psychic ability, always use your power for the good of all.
