Hello, my name is Mark. I am new to veritas. Well, I have come across my ability to make ice a few times in the past, I am very unaware of what to do, it has made it to where my family doesn't believe me, and many of my close friends just laugh and walk off, I hoped maybe all of you would understand, so here I am asking for a teacher, someone that is a honest about what they can do, I only ask for good help, someone to show me the ropes, my skills go beyond cryo, so please just contact me if you can help...

well, while you're waiting for a reply from a person who might teach you (i'm unqualified in that field), take a look around the site :).

how could you do cryokinesis without formal training? Or even informal training?

In the mean time, I suggest doing some research on the field you feel you want to progress in. Google is your friend. :p

I don't know how it happened, it just happened, and I have looked into this a litte bit before, I think it would help if I had a teacher, that's all.

I think it would help if you researched it and got a decent understanding of it before asking for a teacher.It would help both you and your teacher (assuming you even find one skilled enough to teach)

You're not likely to find a teacher that skilled in psychokinesis that can teach you. Granted, I assume there are some here that have enough knowledge and skill to help you refine and control that ability.

And note, its generally easier to persuade someone with verifiable evidence and perhaps a demonstration. Word of mouth about these things tend to be frowned, even laughed upon.

For that matter, pyro- and cryo- kinesis seem to be almost ignored abilities, with only the most basic techniques and few people who actually practice them.  Psychokinetics are far less rare, although I don't think there'd be many people who would actually teach the disipline.

So far, people have done well enough (in alot of cases) simply by teaching themselves.  Psionics simply isn't advanced enough so far to require actual tutoring, for most skills.  Look at the articles here and at psipog.com; they contain the basic knowledge, at least.  After that its just skill, it seems.
Act; for the universe will never forget your movement, nor will it ever forgive your stillness.

what the heck are you guys talking about? there are people here who are capable of teaching this kid (whether they will or not is a different matter).

and secondly, giving a demonstration cause word of mouth is laughed at? only if the person is making extremely outrageous claims like training in ki for three days and blowing up their car or something. otherwise, how can this kid demonstrate his ability over the internet? the internet is very much a place of "word of mouth" and that's something that won't change until video is standard on the net and for the psions who can scan/RV/etc *really* well.

and finally, i'd hardly say that cryo is more prevalent than pyro. pyro is more ... "common" and is ignored just cause it's not special. as well, there are people who practice the "advanced" forms of fire/heat control and ice/cold control, they're just "hard" to find (the real ones, not the bs fakers).

Kakkarot, it seems you need to actually _read_ the post, rather than skim it, or comprehend what we were talking about in full.  First of all, I said that he is not apt to find a teacher _that_ skilled to help him progress in psychokinesis. I mean hell, if he's already making ice, then it looks to me like he just needs help with refinement and control. I said that I'm sure there are people here that can help him refine and control the ability, but not teach for progression. Second of all, He commented that, "it has made it to where my family doesn't believe me, and many of my close friends just laugh and walk off." This is what I meant when I was talking about a demonstration, to the people in IRL. Finally, no where in anyone's posts did they say that cryokinesis is more prevalent than pyrokinesis. What Zake said was, "For that matter, pyro- and cryo- kinesis seem to be almost ignored abilities, with only the most basic techniques and few people who actually practice them."
