You may already have an idea about what you think telekinesis is. Most likely, if you are brand new, your ideas may come from a television show you have seen at some point in time, or some popular movies which feature telekinesis. Unfortunately, these shows are rarely a realistic depiction of what telekinesis looks like, especially without much practice.
We are not trying to tell you that you cannot do amazing things with telekinesis, because you certainly can, but first you need to understand telekinesis and practice it.
Generally, telekinesis can be divided into three categories:
Macro-Psychokinesis- This means moving concrete, physical things with your mind such as papers, pens, and pencils. We will be teaching you how to do this as a part of this course.
Micro-Psychokinesis- This means manipulating chance or things at the subatomic level (things you cannot see with your naked eye). We will be teaching you how to do this as a part of this course.
DMILS- "DMILS" stands for "Direct Mental Interactions with Living Systems". This is the ability to manipulate living things in some way using telekinesis. Healing falls into this category. You will not be learning DMILS as a part of this course.
Oh, one more thing, a more precise term for telekinesis that a lot of us like to use is “psychokinesis”, in case you haven’t figured that out yet.
Sometimes newer, especially younger, practitioners also have a tendency to make new terms up instead of practicing, such as electrokinesis or umbrakinesis. We don’t use these words because people get confused.
What are fluff bunnies? Fluff bunnies are people that use the above bad terms. Generally, fluff bunnies like to make things up about their abilities (saying they can do things they cannot do), or say that certain things are possible that aren’t (like shooting laser beams out of your eyeballs or levitating cars). If you want to learn more about fluff bunnies, read our fluff bunny article. You do not want to be a fluff bunny.
You may be wondering, if normal depictions of telekinesis (like those in movies) aren’t very realistic, what is?
Traditionally, many beginners in telekinesis have found that moving smaller pieces of paper (called a “psi wheel”) is a realistic target. However, we’re trying to move away from that because it’s too easy to accidentally blow on it or make it move due to the heat of your hands.
Small objects such as a pendulum, or something floating on water is a realistic beginners target. Once beginners master this, it’s common to practice on soda cans, pens, pencils, or marbles.
As you will find, if you haven’t already, is that psychic development is a very personal process. Everyone is different. As a result, we cannot tell you how long it will take you to see success. Commonly, people see success in anywhere from a week to two months of daily (dedicated) practice.
Like any other ability, some individuals are more successful with telekinesis than others. Like most other skills, telekinesis requires practice. Becoming good at telekinesis is about doing, not just reading or talking about it. Most, if not all individuals who have enough mental discipline to practice regularly and have patience, can be successful with telekinesis.
Now that you have been through the fundamentals, and have hopefully read and practiced the recommended guides, we can get to the fun part: actually doing real telekinesis. If you haven’t done so yet, you should practice the stuff in our introductory guide, thought primer, visualization primer, and Lesenthe’s “Constructs for Newbies”. Also, if you haven’t done so yet, create a journal to monitor your progress.
