I'm Lain, I just found out about this website in my sleepless stupor and I thought it would be a good idea to join up. We all have a story so I guess I'll tell mine right off the bat... I found out about psionics when I was about 16 years old. I saw some guy on a board saying he used to be able to move objects and forgot how, now he wanted to learn again and a later post had a link to a website on the subject. It had a good amount of documentation and everything was pretty detailed. At first I just assumed "This is probably some online role-playing group, better not waste my time with this" until I stumbled upon a forum, etc. So I decided to give it a shot, checked out what would be interesting to try and decided I'd try my hand at macro PK. I'd been told the needed amount of practice varied from person to person, sometimes hours and sometimes months. After a few minutes, I'd managed to move a psywheel around (at this point, I was freaking out, as you can imagine) and was able to do some minor stuff like moving paper, strings, cans and such for a while as well as some other non macro PK stuff. I remember I had a good amount of success with empathy and was able to do a few fun experiments with telepathy and such. I didn't practice much, mind you, it was all in good fun and I had the right mentality for it. I was just able to decide that it would work and meditation and such weren't needed, I could just wing it.
Then I lost it.
I got into a massive depression in early college, lost interest in the whole psionics thing which was just a hobby and braincandy for me, but when I tried again as I got out of my depression, I wasn't able to do it anymore. I've tried again and again whenever some bit of interest popped back up, but I was never able to reproduce what I could do in that half a year or so.
So I was listening to some of the music I listened to at the time and got a nostalgia rush strong enough to get me to look up 'psionics' on Google. I want to start training, regain and improve on what I used to have if only to feel the same way I did again.
Wow long intro. Basically, I'm looking for a fresh start. That's pretty much it. Other information you don't really care about: Montreal, Canada, 19, s'bout it.
