Hello and Goodbye / Anyone remember me?
« on: July 04, 2007, 09:35:19 AM »
Probably not.  :)

Anyway, I'm Flojo, and I was a regular poster here on and off until about three years ago.  Since then I've quit metaphysical training (except for the odd practice session here and there... rarely).  However, I've recently decided to dust off my old skills and begin psionics training again.  So, I'll be a regular feature here from now on.

See you all around.

Psionics / Humans=Psiballs?
« on: November 01, 2004, 08:55:01 AM »
Okay, the other day we were discussing this in the Veritas chatroom, and I'd like to hear some other input on it.

I have come to the conclusion that human spirits/souls/whatever you want to call them are, in actuality, constructs.  I came to my conclusion via a logical process:

Spirit = intelligent mass of energy
Construct = programmed mass of energy
Constructs can be given intelligence.

Therefore, we are constructs with programmed intelligence.

What do you think?

Psionics / Psi Study/Practice Group (Mainly for newbies)
« on: October 25, 2004, 03:20:55 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone was interested in joining a psi study/practice group for the purposes of learning and practicing psionics. It'll be sort of like a class, only without a single teacher; the students learning from articles and some of the more skilled students helping the worse ones. It'll have group practices about twice a week, and learning and study will take place via a board. If anyone's interested, e-mail me at the_flojo@yahoo.com or PM me. Only serious people, please. I'm looking for people of all ages with experience ranging from nothing to one year.

Main Hall / Just so you know ... I'm not dead.
« on: July 15, 2004, 09:23:13 PM »
Hey dudes!

I haven't been online in quite a while, and just wanted to inform everyone that I am still quite alive.

You see, there were some rumors flying around on certain boards I frequent that I had died.  Some versions said I died in a car accident, while others claim I was the victim of a drug deal gone bad.

I just want you all to know that I am very much alive.  I haven't been on in a while simply because my computer is totaled and my phone and Internet services got cut off.  Anyway, I'll be back eventually.  I guess.

Anyway, right now I'm in a hotel in Denver, Colorado, so if you need me, I'll one again be available.  Until Sunday, that is...

See you around the Universe!

The other day, I was practicing a Shotokan Karate kata I've done at least a bajillion times, so I didn't have to think about it to do it.  I was doing it while thinking about some school stuff.  A friend of mine who practices Baghuazhang happened to come over while I was training to ask if he could borrow a video game (FFX-2) and said "Hey, I didn't know you study Baghuazhang!" and I froze and looked at him, then looked down, and realized I was in a Baghuazhang stance I'd never learned, and, in fact, had been doing a Baghuazhang form.

The above is just one example of what's been happening lately.  I stop focusing on my movements and my body seems to automatically start doing random forms from random martial arts, which I've never studied in my life.

My question is this ... what the hell is going on?

Other / Being Harassed By A Spirit
« on: May 14, 2004, 01:01:20 PM »
The title pretty much says it all.  Normally, I could deal with the little %$#@* via all of the conventional methods.*cough* Magick *cough*

Unfortunately, there's something odd about this one:  it'll do something to me real fast (in less than a second) during which I can sense it, and then, suddenly, it's gone.  As if it was never even there.

It's making me see things, generally, and just the regular annoying psychic pranks.  I can't do anything about it because he's always disappearing.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Magick / Books on elemental magick/summoning
« on: May 11, 2004, 08:02:19 AM »
Does anyone know of any good books I could buy on these subjects?  I'm trying to expand my skill set to include more stuff, and need beginner-level material in both arts.

I think they both suck.

Martial Arts / Learning Ninjitsu - without the dojo
« on: April 29, 2004, 09:47:28 AM »
I've been wanting to study ninjitsu for a really long time now, but I don't have a dojo near me.  So, I decided to get some of those "learn at home" videos.  Only problem is, most of those are fluffy crap.  So, I was wondering if anyone could take a look at this:

http://www.ninjutsu.com/home-study-courses.shtml

It's the least fluffy one I found.  Is it worth it, or just a bunch of crap?  If it's crap, does anyone know where I can find some useful ninjitsu stuff?

Psionics / Odd PK problem...
« on: April 28, 2004, 07:05:26 AM »
Okay, I've been practicing PK on and off for about a year now, and have been practicing seriously the past two months.  Recently, I've had a rather odd problem come up.

I recently had a burnout.  When I recovered, this had happened:

When I try to move something as I normally would, even something easy like the psiwheel, it won't move anymore.  When I stop thinking about it, it starts randomly moving like crazy, even without me intending it to.  Now, this could be attributed to poltergeisting, but why can't I move things anymore?  I had really strong control over my PK when I had my burnout, but now I can't move stuff with intent anymore, only by accident.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Main Hall / Psionic Martial Arts: Tai Psi Chuan; Aipsido; Psi Qong?
« on: April 23, 2004, 07:33:07 AM »
I was reading in the psi forum about martial arts that help your psi, and that made me wonder:  are there any martial arts that teach psi directly?  Like Tai Chi Chuan, only for psi development and physical combat using psi, instead of chi.  If there aren't any, I think it'd be pretty cool to develop one.

Body Energy Arts / Tae Kwon Do and Aikido - Useless?
« on: April 13, 2004, 03:33:58 PM »
I was reading a letter in Black Belt Magazine recently about how mixed martial arts competitors never have an Aikido or Tae Kwon Do background.  Mixed martial arts competitors always train in martial arts that are highly effective.  This brings me to wonder, do they really work against other styles?  Or does TKD only work against TKD, and the same for Aikido?

Technical Support / Smilies and WYSIWYG Editing
« on: February 20, 2004, 03:06:24 PM »
Whenever I use WYSIWYG editing mode, I can't type in the text box, and therefore can't post.  If I use any other mode, the smilies don't work when I click on them.  I tried upgrading my browser, but it didn't help.
