And just before it gets away, I'll go ahead and say that nobody, I mean nobody, can "bend a spoon with their mind". We should be extremely wary of
these pseudoscientific hucksters lest we find ourselves believing in whatever kinds of nonsense they push our way.
Although it seems you are trolling this thread because you can't see past your own ignorance, I am going to reply to you anyway, even though I know
in the future all I am going to get from you is half thoughts and lazy conclusions.
What the OP is talking about is a REAL effect that has been known for centuries. Yes everyone has put their own twist to it, but it has always been
and will always be a REAL effect.
You said "nobody can bend a spoon with their mind"..... but the REALITY
is, "nobody can bend a spoon WITHOUT their mind"
Of course you were expecting a magic trick, and probably had memories of The Matrix playing in your head of someone bending a spoon with their mind
ONLY..... However, technically, if you bend it with your finger, if you bend it with your arms, or feet, or you use another tool to bend it, NO MATTER
WHAT, YOU USED YOUR MIND TO DO IT.
Your mind controls EVERYTHING you do. This is obvious, and true.
"What happens now is a result of what you were thinking in the past".
This knowledge deals with the very fabric of reality, and how it works. Unless you can see past your own ignorance, you are just stuck in your own
action and reaction world that you probably believe is uncontrollable, even though the masters of the universe have been controlling it with their
minds for many years now.
If you run, walk, crawl... if you talk, scream, sing... if you cry, laugh, or smile... if you hate, love, care... all of that, obviously, is your
thoughts and your mind at work. All of those things above effect physical reality in the most basic sense, and MUCH MORE.

I would have to strongly disagree. Strong sense of belief or "100% faith" does not make money come your way.
That is why you are stuck in ignorance.
1: You don't know how it works.
2: You don't even try to know.
3: You deny it.
4: You probably didn't even try it.
What the OP is talking about is both super complex and super simple logic based knowledge.
Have you ever heard of "seek and you shall find"??? It's a quote from the Bible, but also a very well known universal phenomena.
You see, when you "believe" something, or you have "faith" that something will happen, or you prepare your mind for something, you have greater
chances of that thing happening, or coming true, simply because your mind was ready to see it come true. Sometimes it will come true, but only in your
own eyes, because thats how much you wanted to see it.
This may sound like a "yeah right" moment, but it really does have a basis in reality, and how the mind works.
You see, when your mind is constantly thinking about something, that something actually becomes more visible in multiple ways.
For example: When you buy something new for yourself, like a new car, or new shoes, or new shirt.... all of a sudden you start to notice all these
people with the same car, same shoes, same shirt, or same whatever you got. This is because your mind is thinking about that object, and it makes
that object become more visible around you. Those objects were always there, you just didn't notice them until you started thinking about it.
The "POWER" that the OP is talking about and the knowledge about it originated from this VERY REAL EFFECT that I described above. The trick is
learning how to use the effect to your advantage
If you told yourself for weeks straight that you will find a $20 bill on the floor somewhere, chances are your mind will actually notice a $20 bill on
the floor a lot faster than if you didn't use your mind at all.
No, this doesn't make $20 bills magically appear, but it does make you magically find them faster if there was a $20 bill around because your mind is
ready and willing and "searching" for it.... sometimes on it's own.
If you master this "seek and ye shall find" effect, you might end up questioning to yourself if you actually made "it" happen. You will question
your involvement with the $20 bill you found on the floor. This is where the knowledge gets really deep.....
The following is true:
We are all one object. All of us are a small part of something much larger. All the knowledge that humans have, and all the knowledge that will ever
exist, is inside of this large object. Although everything appears to be separate, that is an illusion, and everything in the universe is connected
to each other by invisible forces. You ARE the larger object. You ARE the knowledge within it.
Knowing the above is the first step in "bending spoons".... Most people are not enlightened enough to understand the full logic behind such
statements, and what knowledge comes from that logic, but I can help you by saying one sentence: The universe is a part of your body.
Like your hair.... It is a part of your body. It grows. You can't move your hair like you can move your fingers, but you can cut it and not feel it.
The universe and everything in it is like your hair. It is a part of your body, it grows, you can't move it like you can move your fingers, but you
can cut and manipulate it and not feel it.
The spoon is a part of your body... but you have to learn how to move it like a paralyzed person tries to learn to move their legs again.
The knowledge is much more deep and complex..... and you would be surprised about how close to truth it all really is.
