You know. I don’t know why I haven’t thought of posting this here before, but I have also had these experiences.
I am 140lbs’er, and the rest of my friends who tried this trick were also right around this size. Take it from me; the people who did the lifting
are not really big people...
On the first attempt of this we choose one of our really large friends that used to play in the WHL for the Calgary Hitmen. This guy is about 6'-4"
& 220 lbs. We tried this without the "ritual" of placing hands palm down in a circular fashion on the targets head. Basically what would happen is
that when we placed our fingers in the locations told (armpits, under knees) and then started to lift, our fingers would just bend and if you wanted
to get any sort of lift, you needed to put more of your whole hand into it, not just your index fingers pointed. If you do get any lift, it’s in the
range of inches, and there is no sort of balance or coordination to the lift. The target feels very un-sturdy even being lifted minor inches by
people with more than just fingers, if you understand what I’m trying to say.
After doing the "ritual" of 4 people placing their left hand palms down on top of the targets head in a circular fashion and then removing them one
at a time top first, then placing your hands to your side, and then into the "holding" locations (armpits, under knees).... We basically lifted this
person with what seemed zero gravity, zero weight, as a matter of a fact we all said the same thing: "It’s like he was rising, and we were not
lifting". Also, I was aware that my finger also didn’t bend or flex much, or anywhere near the amount it did before doing the "ritual".
Also the target felt as if he was weightless for a moment, and I have been the target too and can confirm this feeling. It is as if you are floating.
My back/body felt supported when lifting, compared to the attempt before the "ritual" where is feels like a normal situation of being lifted where
you need to shift weight to feel balanced. After the "ritual" when being lifted you feel completely supported and weightless.
IMO, it has something to do with what the east would call "chi" or star wars calls "the force" (lol. the force, had to say it) or just some sort
of energy transfer.
