      What is Telekinesis? 

      The term Psychokinesis comes from the Greek words psyche meaning soul (ψυχή) and kinēsis meaning motion.

      Telekinesis (TK) or Psychokinesis (PK), is defined as the ability to move objects at a distance by mental power or other nonphysical means. This is everything from moving or levitating objects to the classic bending of spoons.

      But how do you accomplish something like this? How do you know if it is real, or if it is something that you can actually do?

      Well….we live in a world that wants to see action but sometimes even action requires certain patience and soon you will understand why.

       How to learn Telekinesis

      Before you start, Concentration and Believing is the Key

      Concentration is of the utmost importance for anyone trying to learn telekinesis and the deeper you can concentrate, the faster you can develop your telekinetic abilities. So spend time developing your  concentration abilities before you start trying to do telekinesis.

      To do Telekinesis you must be relaxed. One way of doing this is by meditation to clear your mind. Meditation is not a must, but it will help you relax and strengthen your concentration.

      Believing that its true: False beliefs are a well known obstacle to achieving anything. You must convince your mind that this is real and can be done.

      Visualize. You need to become one with the object, feel it, make it a part of you. Connect with the object and visualize it like an extra arm, or try to blend your energy with the object and move it. Don’t think or wish, just move it.

      Practice. Practice for 5 -15 mins a day to improve your concentration and Telekinetic powers. Telekinesis is not something you can learn in a day or overnight, it requires everyday practice. The more you practice, the stronger it becomes.

      Be patient. Progression in telekinesis varies greatly from person to person.

      Improve your concentration everyday. If you cannot concentrate for long you will not have the patience to progress any further.

      With this being said, we will start by moving a very simple object. Who wants to go first?

      *Tamaki had been excited to take the course. She sat in attention at the start of the class but then began to squirm in her seat. She was still young after all. But there was a part of her mind quickly taking in all the information which was being given to her by Sensei Grey. But physically, she first squirmed, then she would put her hands against her cheeks and sigh, then she would shift to the other arm. Then she would doodle in a pad but when the class was asked to levitate something small. Her eyes would shine. She stood up and her body slightly changed, her hair curled at the tip and her body although still small in height took on a slightly more teenage look.* Like this? *She crossed her eyes and levitated her purse. But she didn’t realize that outside the school. she was lifting all the purses and book bags of the others students.* Piece of cake! Hey sensei! Can we lift larger things next? *She was showing that he was being a little too eager.*

      *Jean leans back to stand against her desk and observes Tamaki practice her skill. She was impressed with her high level of skills however she noticed that her young student is not realizing that she is also levitating everyone else’s belongings. She smiles as she hears her student asking for a more challenging task* Ms. Tamaki, your telekinetic level is amazing! I can tell that you are no beginner in this skill. Keep concentrating on what you are doing, however I need you to open your eyes, slowly. It is always important to see for yourself what you can do with this ability.

      *Although Apple isn’t taking the exam for it, she attends one of Miss Grey’s classes at a time that doesn’t clash with any of her own. She tries focusing on her pencil case after reading the notes about telekinesis, but instead her emotion radar activates and she sees coloured auras coming from everyone in the classroom, and even the auras in the class next door. These auras are a different colour depending on what emotions the people are feeling.*

      Ohh, pencil case didn’t even budge… *She looks at the contents page of the textbook, then raises her hand.* Excuse me Miss, are we going to do the lesson on ESP today? I think my power is something similar to that.

      *Still leaning on her desk she feels that another female student is testing her abilities, Jean turns and sees a familiar face then smiles* Excellent Miss Apple! It seems that you have the ability to see other’s auras. Extrasensory Perception or ESP will be taught in next week’s class, but you are still welcome to stay and practice just a little more on moving that pencil case of yours *smiles then winks* Relax, think of something positive, close your eyes, breath, relax some more then focus solely on your pencil case and let’s see what happens.

      Ok class, now that you have a better understanding on how to practice telekinesis, let’s warm up by doing a simple exercise. We’re going to form a psi-ball. What is a psi-ball? Simple! It is a ball of energy that can be created and controlled with our mind.

      *Jean writes simple instructions on the board then stands in front of her desk* Remember the basics of concentration and focus. Most importantly relax! *She shakes her hands and her shoulders* Relax then breath! Once you are fully relaxed then your mind will be able to focus and visualize what you want to do. *Jean smiles then gives a demonstration of what she wants her classmates to do. She first closes her eyes and relaxes her body; breathes a few times then places her hands together and begins to form a psi-ball* Let’s see you try!

      Warm up and strengthen your concentration and visualization: 

      Rub your hands together for about a minute (or two). This charges the energy field between your hands.
      After about a minute take your hands apart and try to feel the energy between your hands and based on what you feel, try forming a ball with it. Concentrate on what you feel between your hands. Do you feel warmth or cold? Small or big? Do you feel it pull or push? Play around with it and keep concentrating on the feeling between your hands.

      Even the basic stuff sounds complicated @~@

      *Due to clashes with her timetable, Apple had missed the psi-ball lesson. Magic was common in her previous world, so after a while she started connecting some of the basic level telekinesis with magic spells she was familiar with. Although she didn’t have the aptitude to be able to use any of them, it did help her understand telekinesis a bit better.*

      Oh so it’s kinda like that spell daddy can do… but instead of mana it uses willpower? Excuse me miss, where does the energy come from? O:

    • #146041

      *Dez was mostly silent in class. He learned best by listening carefully and creating a mental picture in his mind about what the sensei was teaching. Later on, after class, he would make sure to practice quietly in the areas designated for this kind of activity.*

      Excellent question, Miss Apple! *Jean looks to her and smiles then leans in front of her desk* Where does the energy comes from? Hmmm..but the actual question is: What is energy? Well, there are many definitions such as “the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.” or “the property of matter and radiation which is manifest as a capacity to perform work (such as causing motion or the interaction of molecules).” which are all good, don’t get me wrong but for the telekinetic energy is everything! It’s that invisible force that we cannot see or touch but it can be felt. But for that to work, remember the basics of concentration which was taught at the beginning of the class. *Jean demonstrate an example by closing her eyes, using breathing techniques then reaching to her relaxed state. Once focused, she opens her eyes and makes a lifting gesture with one of her hands. Jean chuckles seeing the few shocking faces of her students. Each of them began to rise slowly midair while being seated on their school chairs. Some were holding on tight to their chairs, while others were feeling excited* Once you master your concentration technique, you may be able to control energy. You can feel it flowing around you because you are using yourself as the focal point to make it move however you want it to be. *As Jean lowers her hand, the chairs slowly settle back to the floor and she couldn’t help but to giggle again upon hearing sighs of reliefs from a few of her students* Great! Continue taking notes and practice at home; soon we will begin to practice the basic level techniques. Class dismissed!

      *Jean arrives to her class on time and begins to teach her next subject* Hello again! I hope everyone had a wonderful lunch! Today we will talk about ESP which stands for Extra Sensory Perception! *She looks to Apple and smiles since she knew that Apple was interested in this subject*

      The term “ESP” simply implies the ability to perceive sensations that are normally not perceptible to the physical senses. You need to keep in mind that our senses already block out over 90% of the sensory input that we receive during the day otherwise we would not be able to process information efficiently. ESP is the ability to perceive this other dimension of sensory input which includes information from the energetic/metaphysical realm. When you see ESP as merely expanding your perception of sensory stimuli to extend into the other 90% that everyone else does not see, you will realize that there is nothing mystical or supernatural about ESP. It is a part of instinctual human functioning that has been suppressed over the years due to disuse. It can easily be reawakened with the right training.

      So what exactly is it that is suppressing your ability to perceive sensations on a metaphysical (beyond the physical) level?

      What is keeping you from perceiving that which exists on the energetic plane is a noisy state of being. A noisy state of being is where your mind (your internal dialogue) won’t shut up and is constantly thinking extraneous thoughts. How can you hear the whisper of the metaphysical when the volume in your head is deafeningly loud?

      A noisy state of being is where your body is full of tension, stiffness, and discomfort. How can you feel the delicate pulse of the formless Universal when you are too preoccupied with the rigidity of your physical form?

      A noisy state of being is where your emotions are being constantly pulled and pushed by what you judge to be right or wrong in this world, which by the way, never has any grounding in objective reality and is always dependent of social factors, cultural factors, and self interest. All of the ancient traditions talk of this emotional slavery to illusory concepts as the root of human suffering. How can you feel the spirit of the Universal that flows through all of creation, when your own spirit is being tortured by illusion? Please think carefully on this because it is so important.

      It is only when your entire being reaches a state of quiet stillness that you will begin to naturally and effortlessly manifest ESP. And ESP must be manifested from a state of naturalness and effortlessness; otherwise it will be contrived and artificial; devoid of any real substance.

      The development of real ESP has nothing to do with learning new skills because you already have the ability. You were born with it and it can never truly leave you. The development of real ESP has everything to do with stripping away the burdens of mental noise, physical tension, and attachment to desires.

      The most effective tool I have found to achieve these goals is the correct practice of meditation with attention paid to the three centers of being. Proper breathing (spirit), proper posture (body), and proper focus (mind). But it is not enough to dwell in stillness for a few minutes a day when meditating, only to go back into madness outside of your meditation space. The principles of stillness and meditation must flow into your everyday life and become part of you. You must be vigilant. You must pay attention.

      Pay attention. There again is the mantra of the energy healer. You must pay constant attention to the state of your mind, body, and spirit throughout your whole life. You cannot pay attention when you are always absorbed in your own drama. You must let go of that because it has never served you anyway. And just as a seed will eventually blossom into a flower, so will your being eventually come to a state of constant and effortless stillness.

      With this stillness you will live your life as you did before, yet from a foundation of detachment, contentment, relaxation, and mental silence. No more noise. No more excess tension. No more emotional slavery to illusion.

      It is at this point that you become like a body of water that is completely still. You can come to this body of water and the drop of the smallest pebble will cause it to react immediately. This….THIS is what ESP is! ESP is the result of the transformation of an ocean of turbulent water where even the dropping of a Mac truck will not make a difference, to that of completely still waters that are sensitive to the slightest stimuli.

      When you reach this level through the practice of meditation, you will now have to make an effort to not display ESP. Colors and sounds will be different. You will feel a distinct “dance” in the air around you that cannot be put into words. It’s like describing light to a man that was born blind. And yes, seeing auras, hearing thoughts, diagnosing through intuition, clairvoyance, and basic psychic phenomena will become commonplace to you.

      So remember my students, mediation is key to develop ESP; very similar to Telekinesis / Telepathy. This is all for today, take notes and go meditate. Have fun.

      Class dismissed!

      *Apple diligently writes notes as Miss Grey explains ESP, and often has to raise her hand to ask questions. The questions are mostly about the meaning of some of the longer words rather than the underlying concepts.*

      Oh wowie, so if I practice meditation more and get rid of the noise then my ability will be more natural and that means it will hurt my head less. I think I get it!

      Good Morning class! Very soon we will have our first combat stimulation training. We will start off with the basic level first, naturally, then once you all have a better comprehension of using your telekinetic technique, we will move forward to the next. I hope you have been practicing, the more you do, the easier it will be once you start the training.

      But first, there is one subject of interest that will also help for this combat training as well. *Jean leans against her table and puts her right hand inside her pocket* Who can tell me the meaning of the word Telepathy and its difference with Telekinesis?
