What is Psi? A Brief Overview
Psi, used as a scientific term, within Parapsychology, describes different forms of psychic phenomena, such as Psychokinesis (PK, mind over matter) and ESP (extra-sensory perception), without explicitly relating to the underlying mechanics. Current psi theories tend to describe information(perhaps in a psychic nature) moving from one place to another. The term Psionics, at least the term used commonly by the online energy communities(OEC), such as this website, tends to refer to a type of energy that can be manipulated with the mind, in order to achieve various different results. Psi viewed in this context, is perceived as energy, and also seems to cover some of the psychological aspects of psi within its framework.
Why Practice Psionics?
Psionics, although seemingly most used primarily(at the time) during practice sessions where one sits down to actively work on the desired psychic or psionic skill, it can also be used for various applications outside the psychic / psionic “practice room”. Please consider the following hypothetical scenarios when deciding whether or not Psionics is for you. Consider a hypothetical situation where you are meeting with your friend, but he/she is really late, and is not picking up his/her phone. If you are heavily practiced in Psionics, you would most likely be able to gain an accurate perspective on where your friend might be, or why he/she is late. Consider this second scenario. Imagine that you are in an interview for a highly desired job, and you have been unemployed for quite some time. With Psionics, you may be able to gain a more accurate view on what the interviewer is “looking for” in an interviewee(however, please consider the moral implications of this activity before deciding to engage in it).
Defining Psionic / Psychic “Practice”
When we refer to Psionic / Psychic “practice”, it is often misunderstood as a directive to sit down in a quiet location for 15-30 minutes to work on psychic or psionic skills. However, this is hardly a real-world application of Psionics. There is very seldom a situation where Psionics or psychic skills might be applicable that involves a situation where one is alone in a quiet room. More frequently, Psionics or a psychic skill can only be applied in situations on the fly, or without much notice beforehand, and those situations frequently don’t involve a “quiet room”. So, when we define practice, we mean everyday application of the psychic or psionic skill in question. Sit down practices in a quiet room, if necessary, should never occur without frequent breaks(please see the Psi / Psychic Practice Precautions part of this web page for more information on this subject). This guide is written in such a way as to encourage on the fly applications of psionics, meaningful applications, and ways of practicing that promote furthering skills on little time(because let’s be frank, most of us have day jobs, kids, school, or all 3).
What is a Realistic Psionic / Psychic Experience for a Beginner?
When reading this, it is important to keep in mind that realistic psychic or psionic experiences for a beginner, while statistically significant(defined as having a probability of happening by chance of less than 5 percent), are probably not experiences that involve winning the lottery worth 1 million US dollars, moving a car with telekinesis (Psychokinesis), or predicting what is going to happen in 20 years to you with pinpoint accuracy. Accurate Psionic goals for a beginner might be moving the psiwheel for the first time(the psiwheel is an object engineered by other psionic and psychic communities for the purpose of being easy to move, with little friction, for a beginner in psionics), predicting tomorrows events, predicting the outcome of a football game, winning $5 on a scratch off, etc. Be realistic with your expectations, and realize that very few are 100% accurate with this, and that great successes take time and dedication.
Psi / Psychic Practice Precautions
Before you begin actual Psionic practice, it is important to reiterate the “risk” part of Psionics, even though it was previously mentioned both in this guide, and on the “What is Psionics?” page. You should never use Psionics in place of medical services by a licensed medical practitioner. You should also not practice Psionics if you suffer from any form of dissociative illness without first consulting your doctor as these exercises may exacerbate those symptoms, due to the nature of the subject content. Furthermore, if you experience any discomfort while practicing any of the exercises on this website, please stop immediately.
Psionics and Religion
This topic is often avoided like the plague within both our site, and most likely, many others. It attracts a certain stigma due to the “gray” area that Psionics appears under within the context of Christianity and many other religions. Psionics was an attempt to separate our practices from those that can be labeled as “magick” in nature. We do not practice religious rituals of any kind, or give religious advice. This site is composed of individuals from almost every religion, including but not limited to: Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Paganism, and many others. It is under most of our beliefs that Psionics(with hope), does not infringe on many religious practices. We feel that our exercises are not unlike mind-body exercises frequently administered within the fields of psychology or medicine. We do not teach the casting of spells here, or any other activity that we feel to be questionable under the various religious practices listed above. Finally, we feel that one does not have to change his/her religion to practice Psionics.
As such, if you have any moral or religious objections to the content presented here, we encourage you to consult your local religious organization regarding their views when it comes to practicing activities such as these.
