Not always, but you do have a right to be suspicious. This thread wasn't really collaborated.
What happened was, since I taught him about Psionics and he felt as if he needed a place where he could tell people about his practice without getting
called a liar, crazy, a warlock or some such nonsense which he most certainly isn't.
I know what it feels like to have everybody posting arguments against you, and it isn't pleasant, so I decided to contribute in order to give him
'back-up' if such a situation were to arise.
Think about it, if you discovered that you could do things like this wouldn't you try your best to find a place/person/people you could talk to about
it without being laughed at or called a liar? And that's why he posted, so he could be accepted by at least some people.
His parents wouldn't exactly be understanding if they knew what he was doing, which is why he has to keep it on the low-down, so to speak. If they
found out they'd think it was something that it wasn't, and probably couldn't be convinced otherwise.
And I've never heard a beginner say something like "ALL I can do is fold a dollar in half without touching it."
I'm not quite sure what your driving at here, could you explain your objection a little more?
Videos would help...
If we had videos we'd have posted them, or links to them already. However, there is a plan in my little circle of Psions to see if we can get our
hands on some video-taping equipment, so at least I can have a video to show, which you probably won't trust anyway.
...but I'd also be interested in the specific techniques, step by step, that you use to see if I can replicate it...
Well, that's one of the things about Psionics that make it difficult. It's not exactly methodical in nature. It's more of an intuitive sort of
thing, because each person has a specific visualization/technique that will work for him better than the next person.
Most of one's practice time is spent creating and refining your own specific methods in order to produce results more consistently.
Another thing that makes it difficult is that your subconscious is the part of your mind that does the actual muscle work. We need
visualization/techniques to let our subconscious know what we want it to do, and if the point isn't gotten across, what you want done doesn't get
And since your subconscious has basically been taught that this is impossible, it will treat telekinesis as if it isn't possible. Which is why you
actually need to believe that it's possible before you can do anything. And I mean, actually believe that it's possible, AND that you are capable of
it, which you are.
Now, after explaining all that, I can still point you to the place where Spider and I learned how.
There, a whole library's worth of articles and directions, ripe for the learning.
...as well as how long it took you to learn, how much you practice per day/week, etc.
Well, I assume you mean how long it took me to get my first results. It took me about 2-3 days to get the Psi-wheel to move, and another 2 to get it
to move beneath a glass, though I've been told that I progressed extremely fast in the beginning. Most people don't get the psi-wheel to move for at
least a week.
I'm at least 3/4's into my first year, and, while better at it than Spider(I'm sure he would agree), I can only fold a dollar bill in on itself. I
don't really 'practice' so much as I mess around with it every night before I go to bed.
Usually I only put about 10-15 minutes into it a night, though some nights I'll go all out and just practice until I'm so worn out I can't keep my
eyes open. And this does take a physical toll on you. If you keep at it for a long time, you WILL get tired.
There, I think that just about answers all of your questions. Have fun reading through PsiPog!
