Instructional: Your first Psiball
This is a method that has had a 100% success rate with all the people I have taught in person. I'll to my best to replicate the exercise in words, though an in person lesson is always more beneficial. Naturally. Unfortunately I don't have that luxury, so this will have to suffice. This method requires no visualization (though you can if you wish), the method works off of picking out a particular feeling during a stimuli that will be induced in the exercise. As a result, there is no required meditation, or lengthly preparation, this can be done almost anywhere. Psiballs should not be a difficult exercise, and should not take a month to get results in my opinion. For most people, the following exercise should provide immediate results. During my 5 years of devoted practice as of 2011, I highly recommend this as a starting point. If somehow you do not succeed on the first few attempts, feel free to try other methods (or create your own), and don't be discouraged.
Step 1: Bring yourself into a state of moderate relaxation, all thats important is you don't want to be tense for the exercise. You can dance around and shake your body to loosen up if you need to. If you danced around, let the rush of energy created by dancing settle sufficiently. After all that, give your hands a good hard clap (Hard enough to generate a tingly feeling).
Step 2: Put your hands out in front of you as if you were holding a ball from the sides, it should be big enough so your finger tips are not touching, be sure that the sides of you fingers are also not touching, but don't force it. It is imperative that you are holding the ball from the sides, and not the bottom (only for the purpose of this exercise). If you want to, you can visualize a golden ball, made of solid gold, but it's not entirely necessary. All thats important is that you are pretending there is one.
Step 3: Ok, now, remember to relax. Imagine the golden ball your holding is extremely greasy, and it takes all your strength to hold it in place. Keep holding it from the sides, but don't flex your muscles attempting to keep the weight of the ball. Just try to feel like It's taking a significant force to hold it in place.
Step 4: If the exercise was done correctly, you should feel a pressure seeping from your hands moving outward into the void where the ball should be. You may have to look for it. People with lower sensitivity will have to look for the feeling. Others will feel it unmistakably.
Step 5: Once you have recognized the feeling of energy moving out of your hands, stop, shake your hands out, and try to recreate the feeling without the method given. True mastery of a skill involves transcending the method, not mastering the method. Once you are used to the feeling, It should become as familiar as breathing, and can be done whimsically.
Step 6: Now that the essence of energy manipulation is in familiar range, we can start constructing the energy. At the moment you have only pushed energy out your hands, you have not actually stabilized anything. Ok, start by pushing more energy into the ball area. But now, you must be aware of the boundaries of the construct and prevent energy from escaping. Try to feel the boundaries of the psiball, and create the pushing feeling around the boundary, so all the energy around it fluxes inside, and stays inside. Eventually, after enough energy is put inside, you will be able to feel various things, such as heat and electricity, gravitative pressure, odd discomfort, or even cold.
Congratulations, If you have succeeded the following exercise, you can now recognize the feeling of fundamental energy, and can manipulate it throughout your body, and your immediate area. You can also create basic constructs and are ready to move on to more advanced constructs.
