Is It Possible to Learn Telekinesis?

Some people are naturally born with or naturally develop telekinesis, and others may be able to learn to do it or control it. Telekinesis, also called psychokinesis or PK, is a form psychic energy that involves influencing the movement of objects, and it may be far more common than people realize.

Natural Telekinetic Ability

Some people have natural telekinetic abilities, either beginning at birth or arising at some point in their lives; however, they may not realize they have this ability. In fact, all poltergeist (noisy ghost) activity is the result of telekinetic energy, often from a living person who is unaware they have the ability. Other people are aware of their natural telekinetic abilities and can learn to build on or have better control over them.

Learned Telekinesis

Because telekinesis is just a controlled burst of energy used to affect matter, many people can learn how to do at least a limited version of it. It truly is a case of "mind over matter," and with the proper focus and concentration, people may be able to affect objects. For some, these effects may be small to start and build over time. Others may discover their ability to affect matter mentally remains minimal. Still others may discover they can make objects move in a big way, or that they've been doing it all along subconsciously.

Learning Psychokinesis

While you may never be able to bend spoons with your brain like Uri Geller, you might be able learn to have at least a small physical effect on objects.

Step 1: Learn to Focus

In order to learn telekinesis, you first need to be able to focus your attention. Meditation is helpful for this, particularly gazing meditation where you focus on an object, such as a candle flame or a crystal. To do this:

  1. Sit somewhere that you won't be disturbed.
  2. Place your focus object in front of you a foot or two away from your eyes but well in your line of sight.
  3. Begin by breathing deeply as you focus your soft gaze on the object.
  4. If your attention wanders, bring it gently back to the object.
  5. Practice this at first in short increments (5 minutes) and work your way up to 20 minutes of focused attention.

Step 2: Eliminate Negative Self-Talk

One of the biggest blocks to accomplishing virtually anything is how you talk to yourself and think about something. This is especially true when you are learning something that feels like it could be "impossible" such as moving objects with your mind. Even if you don't believe you can do it, you need to fake belief until you actually believe you can. So anytime you catch yourself thinking, "I can't do this" or something similar, you need to change the thought immediately to "I can do this." Do this consistently every time you catch a negative thought.

Step 3: Vaporize Small Clouds

Vaporize Small Clouds

It's important to start small so you can experience success. A great exercise to get started is erasing clouds; it's low stress, relatively easy to do, and it allows you to start simply and learn to trust your abilities. Choose a day with just wispy little clouds in the sky; don't start with a thunderhead that takes up the entire sky.

  1. Choose the smallest cloud in the sky. Pick a really tiny one. Seriously. Super tiny.
  2. Pick a time when you won't be disturbed and can concentrate fully. It's a good idea to do this when nobody's around (your backyard is a good place to do it) so you won't feel silly if you have to answer questions about what you're doing.
  3. Sit comfortably and breathe deeply until you feel calm, centered, and focused.
  4. Gaze at your cloud with a soft gaze and say aloud or in your head, "There is no cloud."
  5. Then, while still gazing at the cloud, visualize that section of the sky with that cloud missing. Alternatively, you can visualize the cloud evaporating.
  6. Continue to gaze, breathe, and visualize until the cloud disappears or for five minutes. Take a break after five and start again when you are refreshed.

Step 4: Stay With Clouds for a While

Stick with clouds until you feel confident you can do that consistently. Over a period of a week or two, try doing more or clearing a small patch of sky with several clouds (one at a time). Then, maybe choose a few slightly larger clouds. Work your way up to the big ones.

Step 5: Try a Physical Object

Next, move on to something that feels more solid and physical than a cloud. A wine cork in a bowl of water is a good next step.

  1. Fill a glass bowl with water and put it on a level surface.
  2. Float a cork in it.
  3. Sit where you can clearly see the cork, but make sure you're not touching the surface it sits on (if it's on a table, make sure your feet don't touch the table legs either).
  4. Clear your mind and breathe deeply. Focus on the cork.
  5. Decide how you want the cork to move. Do you want it to spin clockwise or counter clockwise? Do you want it to float across the bowl? Visualize the cork doing that as you focus on it.
  6. If visualizing isn't making it move, imagine your energy connecting with the cork and moving it as you wish. If the cork even wobbles, consider it a success.
  7. Do this only for short periods to start. Try maybe five minutes at a time and take plenty of breaks.

Step 7: Work Your Way Up

Work Your Way Up

If you have success with the cork, try other objects, working your way up over time. Some things to try include:

  • Put a feather, wisp of lint, or puff of cotton on a flat surface and turn a glass upside down over it. Try to get the puff to move.
  • Place a pen, pencil, or crayon on a flat surface and try to get it to roll or spin.
  • Gaze at a lit candle and try to bend the candle flame in a specific direction.
  • Place a small ball on the floor away from drafts and see if you can get it to roll a little. You can also do this with small toy cars that have moving wheels.

Tips for Better PK Sessions

To give yourself the best chance for success, consider the following:

  • Make sure you're in a positive frame of mind when you start. If you're tired, angry, hungry, or sick, your focus won't be as strong and you'll be more likely to get frustrated.
  • Start with very short sessions of just a minute or two (or with a single cloud). Only as you have success should you work your way up to longer sessions.
  • If you feel frustrated, step away, take a break, and come back when you're in a more positive frame of mind.
  • Try sending out a burst of energy. It may help to do this through your hands. Hold your hands towards the object you're trying to move making sure you don't bump the surface it's on or touch it in any way. Now imagine energy coming up from the earth through your feet, up your body, into your hands, and bursting out of your hands towards the object.
  • You can also try visualizing the energy as a string between you and the object. Then, pull the strand of energy with your mind.
  • Consider even a tiny movement success and build on that.
  • Keep it light and fun. If you start to take it too seriously or get too intense, you may block your own abilities.

Signs of Latent Telekinetic Abilities

So how do you know if you have natural telekinetic abilities?

You've Experienced Poltergeist Activity

If you've been in a location where poltergeist activity occurs, you may be the human agent unwittingly causing it. It's not absolute proof; it could be someone else, but it could be a sign.

Your Can't Wear a Watch

Many people with latent PK abilities can't wear watches because they never run on time or they die quickly.

Power Anomalies Happen Around You

If you're someone who experiences a lot of power anomalies; batteries draining that shouldn't, street lights going out whenever you're near, lights blinking, and other anomalies, this can be a sign of PK energy discharging itself, and it may be coming from you.

The Power of PK

You can test your PK abilities using the same activities you use to strengthen them. Whether you try to move a dust bunny or a mountain, tapping into the power of your mind is a fascinating experiment.
