Basically, I dabbled a little bit once, but now I'm back with more determination.
Call me Zach. I'm a 22-going-on-23 year old guy located in the USA. I stumbled across psionics once when I was young, but I was far too much of a fundamentalist Christian to even consider it, considering it close to witchcraft.
Things have changed since then and not only have I left fundamentalism, I've also left Christianity. I'm an atheist druid of sorts, though I still believe that it's possible for spirits to exist.
Now then, I followed the Overview of Psionics and found myself being quite natural at creating psiballs (though I visualize the energy less as a ball in my abdomen and more as energy crackling across my skin). Also, for the first time, I had been able to create a warm cube, and a crystalline pyramid, though I had to reform the bottom of it which had become hollowed out, which wasn't in my mental projection. Hey, I'm still learning.
Visualization is actually harder for me than just feeling the sensation, but that's just something I'm going to have to work on.
I also managed to make a shield, but that was when my energy ran out and I had to stop.
The more I think about it, the more I realize that I have been using psionics for a long time now. For one thing, I tend to make some odd gut-decisions that lead to good consequences, though I can never do this intentionally, and trying to do so usually results in bad consequences. A more practical example is that whenever I have a headache, I visualize a syringe sticking into my head and pulling bad blood out, or good blood in, and that usually alleviates some of the pain in that spot.
I've also been "pulsing" energy for awhile, that is, making it surge across my skin. The tingling sensation is very real. I chalked it up to my imagination but I may be wrong about it.
I'm going to try to take things slowly and more deliberately this time. Last time I tried psionics, I tried to do MacroPK on my first day. Obviously, that didn't work well. I do seem to have a knack for energy manipulation. Programming constructs, however, and manifesting temperature or sensations is currently beyond me.
Be warned I'm a bit of a lurker, though I will eventually become more involved in the community :D I hope to have a good time here. Thanks for any help you've given me and will give me.
