System - a method by which one makes psionic energy flow and therefore the abilities to function
Charging - the process of making psionic energy collect on one area of the body or in an object
Psionic-Energy System - a persons body and their psionic field that surrounds them, and the interactions of the two
Try the following systems. I suggest you try with both hands, one should be more able to produce the energy then the other. Normally this is the dominate hand.
The following work-sheet is provided so the you may record you attempt at each System. Take the record sheet out and photo copy it. I suggest you try each system at least three times. Review the records of your attempts and decide which System works best for you. By "Details of method used", describe what you visualized, or otherwise "imagined" while trying that System.
To start with you must choose what is called a System. A system is a form of producing and manipulating psionic energy.
A simple practice of imagined substance of one of the senses (light, sound, touch, or combination) to get the neurons firing properly to produce psionic energy.
Example: Imagine your body made of glass, and filled with light. Whatever color and brightness of light represents energy to you. Then imagine this light flowing from your body down your arm and pooling in your hand.
Example: Imagine your body filled with a sensation. Whatever sensation represents energy to you(heat and tingliness are often used). Then imagine this sensation flowing from your body down your arm and settling in your hand.
Example: Imagine your body filled with a sound. Whatever sound represents energy to you(many people use their favorite songs). Then imagine this sound traveling from your body down your arm and collecting in your hand.
Example: Imagine your body is made of glass, filled with a fluid. Whatever fluid represents energy to you. Give the fluid a color and temperature and taste and thickness. Then imagine this fluid pouring from your body down your arm and pooling in your hand.
A much harder, though very good system, involving less tangible ideas then senses. Usually a type of thought or other mental activity. Although these examples may seem a bit vague, they do work quite well for some people. Most people will know if one of these systems will work well for them.
Example: Imagine the center for all your primal-emotion and instinctive reactions in your body. Now focus all that primal being into your hand. Depending on the type of ability and effect you want, the exact primal-emotions focused will change some. However to start with I suggest that all the primal-emotions are used until the charging process becomes easier.
Example: Imagine the center for all your emotion in your body. Now focus all that emotion into your hand. Depending on the type of ability and effect you want the exact emotions focused will change some. However to start with I suggest that all emotions are used until the charging process becomes easier.
Example: Imagine the center for all your thoughts in your body. Now focus all those thoughts into your hand. Depending on the type of ability and effect you want the exact thoughts focused will change some. However to start with I suggest that all thoughts are used until the charging process becomes easier.
Example: Focus on all the static and other "noise" in your mind. Collect all that static in to in place with in your body. Now focus all that static into your hand.
A complex conceptional system that uses many different sensations and mental activity, translating all the various factors into a ongoing story in the psions mind. Example: The following example was written by Lorax, Master Psion of Constructs, also a former student of mine. As Loarx uses the story telling system, and can do much better credit to it then I.
"Storytelling is a method of using psionic energy that allows the user to combine all five senses, as well as taking into account peripheral factors without having to analyze them all. In storytelling, you imagine a scenario in which to use your energy. A castle, for example, is a good storytelling metaphor for a shield.
When using this method you can combine each sense - how your castle looks, what noises there are or aren't, how thick the walls are, etc. You can also use it to take extra factors into account. For example, there might be many obstacles blocking you from sending a burst of energy to a friend. They might be blocking, you might be sending it in the wrong direction, something else might block it, and so forth. Quite often you have no way of knowing what these obstacles might be.
To use storytelling for this situation, you would first imagine yourself in a scenario - lets say standing in a forest. Then you would pick a method of delevering your bundle of energy. I'll imagine it as a package being carried by a trained bird (I like fantasy, can you tell :)) The bird will deliver the energy to my friend, who I will imagine as living in a castle, since most of my psi freinds have some form of shielding. Then I would take a few moments to imagine what sorts of obstacles might come up in this story - a thunderstorm, a dangerous dragon, a landmark that was missing, and I would imagine my bird successfully navigating all these obstacles and depositing the package into my friend's mailbox, conveniently located on top of a tower. Without knowing what obstacles might come up in real life, I have given myself a way to get past them.
To actually use this I could actually send the energy as I am storytelling, talking myself through it, or I could get the scenario perfect in my mind and then send the energy along the route I'd just imagined, without going through it again. Any scenario can work - outer space, old west, or your own backyard. I find it easier to use a scenario that is clearly fantasy, so that there is more room to create whatever is necessary.
Storytelling is a more complicated method, but in some situations it is well worth it."
Perhaps the hardest of all of the Systems to explain and possibly to use. However most Psions do at some point reach the stage where they can do most of their abilities on this level. For an explanation, place your right hand on your head. Now that happen because you told your body to do so. Likewise simply think the thought that you want energy in your hand, and its there. This is usually a sign that the Psion has improved their ability to manipulate psionic energy and it simply happens after a period of using one of the other systems. example Just do it. There is no try, just do.
