The purpose of this exercise is to give beginners a taste of some of the possibilities and some of the limitations of the way your conscious mind works. What you are doing in these exercises is stating an intention, most notably, to your subconscious or unconscious self. What we have found throughout the years is the following:
Concept #4: Psionic ability is not very responsive to direct instruction.
For example, it is obvious that we cannot lift a car with telekinesis just by saying that we can. You can’t expect to move something using telekinesis by just verbally telling it to move. If this was the case, we would expect that a lot of people would be telekinetic right now.
It is a common viewpoint within our community and related communities that there is something below conscious awareness that makes psionics work. Of course, we can also say this is true when you’re moving your arms or feet. Does verbally telling your feet or your hands to move make it so? Of course not.
By goal making, we are stating an intention, most notably, to your subconscious or unconscious self. We have observed that this sort of subconscious communication is effective when doing psychic abilities.
This brings us to another point. It is a lot easier to make large difference in a system by manipulating its parts. Complex events and difficult situations can be more easily manipulated or resolved by identifying small changes which can greatly affect the whole.
You may find that you cannot get everything you want using this goal-making method, especially if what you want is far fetched (like winning the lottery).
For an application of psionics to be successful, there has to be an available means by which the result is able to manifest. We have observed that the following requirements are essential when willling to get what you want.
Requirement #1: There needs to be a way to get what you are asking for. You cannot expect to get what you want if there is no way for it to manifest in your life.
For example, if your goal is to get a job, but you just sit in your house, don't talk to anybody, don't apply to any jobs, you probably aren't going to be successful.
Requirement #2: You need to have the abilities necessary to accomplish your goal.
What this means, in part, is that you cannot expect to get what you want, psychically, unless you can at least visualize (vision, tactile, all 5 senses where possible) in a way that is vivid. In addition to having this skill, you must also be able to think in a way that is clear and uninterrupted. You must be able to focus on an object for a long period of time without your thought process slipping or without getting distracted. Preferably, the psionic practitioner has the ability to maintain complete control over his/her thought processes.
Further, the application of all psychic ability takes practice and perseverance.
