Okay Unreal Reality...apparently you don't know much about telekinesis, only stage magic, so I will endeavor to explain some key points about it from
my many years of research and experience.
First off...go to Amazon.com or another Net distributor of DVDs, and order yourself a copy of "David Blaine: Fearless." Then study the reactions of
the pedestrians and also what David does with them. If you truly have studied magic at length, you will be able to see through the facade of pretended
Lesson #1: True Telekinetic energies can cause dizziness, nausea, and internal pain.
How do I know this?
Because I have been around people with a Gift of Healing and/or Telekinesis and I have unwittingly reacted that way to those energies.
For example, I had the opportunity to see LIVE The Amazing Kreskin onstage at a dinner theater in the late 1980s. When he started to do a telekinetic
act, I did not have time to determine what he was doing, as I immediately started to feel dizzy and weak. I even had trouble looking at him.
He asked for members of the audience to supply him with thick, college rings. Then he pulled out a ringsizer and announced, "Sometimes this works and
sometimes this doesn't." This in itself is another tipoff that telekinesis may be afoot because it is a Gift of the Spirit and the channeler does
not have true control over the energy - despite what some may claim.
He put the rings on the ringsizer, gave them a couple of turns, and they all instantly welded together. He then took the linked rings off the
ringsizer and passed them around the audience to prove that they were indeed the same rings given to him.
He then put the linked rings back on the sizer, did a couple of more twists, and they were separated and with no apparent damage to any of them.
The above cannot be accomplished with stage illusion. Period.
In the DVD, Blaine does his body levitation feat a number of times. The television version of this segment included a time when he did it on a roadway
and became ill. So ill that he literally crumbled to the grass in pain. That wasn't faked. There is no reason to fake that. I know from experience
that telekinetic energies can cause that to happen.
Lesson #2: To have a powerful Gift does not mean that one is highly evolved.
Paramahansa Yogananda, a well-known author who wrote "Autobiography of a Yogi" once said that he knew of a man who could manifest flowers, but that
that was not indicative of spiritual attainment.
He is quite right.
Lesson #3: The level of energy determines the extent of the Gift of Telekinesis, and that is dictated by the size of the Group Entity which
supplies the Gift. Group Entities on the Other Side that have millions of members are the most powerful and these grant their prophets the Gift of
Manifestation, as well as Healing and Telekinesis.
Most people who have had or have a Telekinetic Gift - like Uri Geller for example - cannot manifest material objects. But there have been prophets
that have had that level of energy channeled through and around them.
The classic example are the miracles attributed to the prophet Issa/Jesus but much more current and documented examples come out of India, surrounding
Sai Baba. Granted, his Gifts have lessened with age because he has abused them. But back in the 1970s and 1980s, Sai Baba was known to many as "The
Christ of India" because of his Gifts of the Spirit. Unfortunately, he is not a spiritual man but his "miracles" are very well documented.
For example, Sai Baba was known to occasionally ask a devotee or pilgrim at his ashram what god they worship. He would then manifest a small item,
like a cross or ring representative of that deity, and hand it to the person.
One case describes a man who was given a ring from Sai Baba. He put it on. He then told Sai Baba that the ring was too big. Sai Baba touched the ring
while it was on the finger of the man: it instantly resized to fit perfectly.
There is a case when Sai Baba decided to not have his chef cook dinner that evening and for his entire entourage to go out for a walk. No one was left
in the kitchen and no food was ordered. When they returned, the cafeteria style trays with the aluminum covers were found to have steaming hot food
inside of them.
Bowls of rice, candy, etc., have been known to be passed around the thousands of pilgrims that would visit Sai Baba at his ashram. People would take
handfuls from the bowls as they were passed around...
...and the bowls wouldn't empty.
This is in addition to many documented healings attributed to Sai Baba.
Back to David Blaine...
In his DVD there is a segment whereby he goes to a street person and asks him, "If you could wish for anything you want, what would it be?" The man
replied that he would like to win the lottery.
David Blaine then brings the man to a convenience store and gives him money to buy a scratch ticket for a lottery. The man, dubious of what this is
leading up to, goes in and buys the ticket. David Blaine then has the man scratch the ticket. Lo and behold, the man wins - or at least appears to
from the winning ticket.
Still dubious, the next scene is the street-person in line at lottery headquarters. His winnings are counted to him from the teller, totaling well
over a thousand dollars.
You can practice magic for decades and still not have a Gift of Magick to be able to pull any of the above off.
Lesson #4: The people who have powerful Gifts of the Spirit are aligned with a Group Entity that they probably came from before entering their
body. There is not only life after death but also life before birth. Those who have large Group Entities channeling through them are actually
"elected" by their discarnate community to be their "prophet." The "Cities of Light" that many Near Death Experiencers have reported seeing, are
actually manifestations of Group Entities.
This is why most of us cannot do miracles of healing and telekinesis. They must be given to us. They cannot be developed as in an advanced class on
Notice how young David Blaine and Criss Angel were when they started to hit the big time. There are more handsome and more skilled and more
entertaining illusionists out there who cannot duplicate their feats on city sidewalks.
Timing has nothing to do with it, unless of course you are referring to comedic timing. In which case, there are definitely magicians out there who
are much funnier and much more skilled in their presentation than either Angel or Blaine. I've seen them.
Rumor has it that the reason why Blaine got the financial backing for his first television show was because he blew the socks off a television
producer in a high-rise office with his body levitation.
Even Blaine admits that he does something "extra" that goes beyond the Balducci Levitation but refuses to identify what that is.
Why don't Blaine and Angel reveal that they have a Gift of Telekinesis?
Why would they want to?
They are multimillionaires because of those Gifts. It is in their best interest to not do so and it also adds to their mystique.
Veteran stage illusionists and everyone who reads on the Net how the feats are supposedly performed, cannot duplicate what Angel and Blaine are doing
without props or the benefit of trick photography. Which is precisely why there are not right now thousands of people doing those feats in parks and
Another telekinetic feat that Blaine does in his DVD is to bring an animal back to life. He goes for a walk in a park with a bird enthusiast (and a
pet bird) and comes across a dead pigeon. This bird was not stunned; it was dead. I've seen a number of dead birds in my day and this one fit the
bill. Blaine is wearing a T-shirt. Nothing to pull a live bird out from. He picks up the bird, gently strokes it and it slowly comes back to life and
then flies away.
Yet another example...
David Blaine walks up to another street-person and takes in his hands the cup of coffee that the man is holding in front of him. Without removing the
cup but holding it at the same place, the coffee in the cup turns into US currency which he gives to the street-person (who humorously breaks out into
song). If you look closely, you can actually see the coffee transform into coins. No sleight of hand. Blaine's hands never leave the cup.
That concludes this crash course on Telekinesis.
