I also wish you were kidding.

Lets hope, for your sake, that you're right.

If he hasn't found it in the last 6 years, he's not going to ;)

Welcome back...I think.

I doubt my body will be any place to be found any reasonable time after my death. So I just want my body to scare some unsuspecting children wandering around where they ought not be.

Simply because I find PK difficult to perform without the use of my hands. It's become a trigger of sorts that I am somewhat reliant upon. I started training PK via the use of my hands and became dependent upon it. However, if you don't plan to do PK beyond a psi wheel at any point, perhaps it's not much of an issue. The only other place it stands in the way is to provide unintentional false positives during your practice such as in the very many methods people use to debunk PK videos.

Though, unless you're just honing your abilities for other sorts of psi practice...I'd wonder why you'd bother with PK at all if you don't intend to go anywhere beyond things that you can move with your hands physically.

Quite exactly what Mindlessinvalid said. Another note: I'm cautioning you against it because this is the very problem that I have. =)

Hands are certainly a tool for shaping intent, but the goal of ones practice should be to eliminate boundaries that may stand in your way in the future. If you can already perform PK without use of your hands, why not work on developing that? Strive to make your practice effective in more situations.

My motorcycle requires far less effort to ride than my bicycle, but this does not make my legs stronger.
Give me an example of a situation where hands cannot be use in the future. If you're tied up to a pole by cannibals? If you need to do PK discreetly, like knocking out the glass of water of your business rival at a meeting so that is spilled out elegantly on the chairman? ;)


I didn't say that you might not be able to use your hands in the future, but becoming used to using them may become a mental block in the future. Specifically when trying to use PK for things other than moving a psi wheel or book that's in front of you. As PK can be used to manipulate any number of things within the physical realm with no limit to distance, there are potential mental boundaries that may incline you to be closer to what you're trying to manipulate.

I'm reaching here, but the point I'm trying to get across is, if you can practice and be successful without unnecessary actions, you can avoid the potential holdups that may be generated by them in the future, and be more efficient in your technique. Don't cut corners in practice, unless the goal of your practice is simply to prove that you can perform PK, rather than to become better at it.

I remember you, you come before 94 and after 92 right. Are you still divisible evenly by 3?

Why is it that grown men do not play in the sandbox and swing on the swings with each other, as I'm sure their children do? I think it's because of maturity; and the lost of real interest in these things.

That's right, but then, the grown men didn't just stop playing all of a sudden. He started to study and work, having less time for child's play, and in an act of atrophy of the habit, he stopped playing it altogether. But how may I mature in this way, how may I grow closer to the divine so that I may start losing interest in the lower self?



This is where the balance comes into play. It is a shifting of priorities. This is why we are encourage not to ignore our problems or more specifically, our emotional selves. It's a process of learning to understand your animalistic instincts and inclinations, discovering what drives them. Knowing the mechanisms by which they operate we can then remove that fuel to their fire, or at least begin to eliminate their importance. The less significant or important those reactions become to you, the more you can focus on the things that are.

That's may have been a confusing way to put it, but the key point is understanding what drives the animal part of you. This can be achieved in any number of ways (my personal approach is via near constant introspection).

Balance, I would argue, is only important in this case when it comes to maintaining your physical self while expanding your spiritual self. It's important not to confuse a lack of balance with difficulty in this circumstance. Even through the understanding I spoke of it will still be difficult to overcome those animal temptations. Obviously, temptation does not dictate need. With your understanding of your reactions also must come understanding of what is 'good for you' and what direction you are headed.

It appears as though they are throwing themselves into a few of those falls (they may not be but it sure looks that way). Is one encourage to stay stiff while practicing push hands? I ask because it also seemed like some of those falls could have been avoided by relaxing when appropriate.

My first suggestion would be to stop using your hands. This is just going to give you a bad unnecessary habit that may also negatively influence your practices by generating movement not directly related to PK. This is a bad habit of my own that I have yet to fully overcome.

My second suggestion would be to establish a control when working with turning pages. Be certain that the page is not going to move of it's on volition prior to trying to move it. Otherwise there is no way to tell whether you are generating the force, or if it's just the stresses in the page, thus, generating false results and convincing yourself you are successful.

Psionics / Re: charging and your joints.
« on: April 24, 2010, 03:09:53 PM »
While I'm not exactly sure why you would 'charge' any part of your body to perform PK, my best guess would be that you're tensing your muscles or constricting them in the areas you are charging. Over a period of time this would no doubt result in some sort of stiffness of that kind, just as one might experience with their knees after jogging.

The body should be relaxed when performing psionics as no tensing or constriction of muscles makes psionics work any better, and in the long run will just generate bad habits.

Psionics / Re: Question about scanning
« on: April 24, 2010, 03:04:23 PM »
This is a constant battle when scanning or performing any sort of sensing technique. My best advice in this case is to practice to avoid aol, along with trying to avoid situations where you are given too much information prior to a scan, if applicable to the situation.

With practice, scanning easilly verifiable information, you'll get a taste for what's just in your head and what you're actually precieving. This needs to be coupled with a certain level of personal understanding. For example: If I were scanning someone to determine what they looked like, I would already have an idea in mind what they might look like. Say that I think they have brown hair and blue eyes.

When I scan them, I take this information that I know I have assumed, and I ignore it, allow myself to be open and receptive to the information I am receiving.

Now there are two methods I receive this information. It is either specific enough that I will understand it out right, thus giving me the answer I was looking for. More often than not, I have to interpret that information because it is not that specific or easy to interpret. It's even more difficult to interpret if my previous assumptions about that person's appearance seem to be true.

This is where my prior experience comes in to play, and gives me an added understanding of what is more likely to be the something I made up in my head originally, and the information I have received.

It's almost never clear cut, but it definitely becomes easier as you learn to trust your intuition. Understanding what you are assuming prior to the scan and during the scan are things you learn to differentiate over time.

My best advice is don't be afraid to be wrong. Trying to be vague about your interpretations or just outright refusing to try in the first place are only going to hold you capabilities back. Don't waste your own time.
