This exercise is where having done the Psionics Introduction Guide becomes important. At the very least, practice diligently from the preliminary exercises at the beginning of this course before proceeding. This experience is necessary because we will apply many of the concepts as learned and practiced to actually doing telekinesis. Remember, psionics is not just about reading or contemplating, it is about doing!
As mentioned in the introduction guide, one of the most important concepts in psionics is the idea of causing change. In this case, the change we wish to cause is movement of the practice object(which you hopefully made in exercise #2) using real telekinesis.
Before beginning this section, I would like to give you a bit of a preview regarding what is to come in further lessons. You will be asked to try out different methods in each subsequent exercise. You will also be asked to write down the details of your working(your practice session) and how it went. With that said:
1. Psionics is a field of experimentation. You will be using these next few exercises to experiment with different methods.
2. You can do telekinesis, and pretty much every other ability using many different methods. You can even design your own techniques. The point is to test them heavily, and make note of your results and how you got there in your psychic journal(you should have created this in either the introduction guide, or the preliminary exercises).
I also mentioned in the introduction guide that the difference between imagining telekinesis and actually doing it is will. That is, you need to have a will to move that practice object using your mind.
The mind is like a mirror. Anything you feed into it is going to be reflected back unto the object and your reality. What this means is that if you say to yourself “I am confident that the object will move within the next minute”, but you don’t actually think that, telekinesis probably isn’t going to happen.
You did some exercises in the introduction guide which helped you to train your ability to actually confidently say that you will for the object to move in the next minute, and actually believe that. The relevant exercises to train this ability are as follows:
Exercise #5: Assume an Opposite Belief
Exercise #6: Assume a State of Disinterest
Exercise #7: Assuming a Confident State of Mind
If you can’t at least be mindful of yourself, how are you supposed to be monitoring your thoughts/beliefs/mental state?
You should not be going back to the introduction guide and/or the preliminary exercises of this course to do them right now, while skipping all of the other exercises in the guide. Please do at least most of the exercises in introductory guide. I don’t understand this paragraph.
You can find more information about how to alter your belief structure in these sections in the Introduction Guide:
How Do You Cause Change?
I will not repeat what those sections say as you should have read them already. However, to recap quickly:
It will be highly beneficial to you to take on a belief structure of confidence for the purpose of this working(moving an object with your mind). Whether you are a skeptic is irrelevant. This is a temporary belief. You should truly believe the belief structure “confidence” you are taking on for the duration of the practice. As mentioned in exercise #7 of the introduction guide, skeptics are welcome to come up with their own pet theories and models for how telekinesis could work for the purpose of the practice.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, the first step is to alter your belief structure to one of “complete confidence”. If you have trouble doing this, you should practice exercises #5,6, and 7 in the introductory guide before proceeding.
A good viewpoint to hold while getting your object to move using telekinesis is that:
“The practice object will definitely move in the next moment, no matter what.”
You should be so confident you actually picture it moving when you think this.
This step tends to be the most difficult for new people to grasp. Basically, you need to be completely sure you have the following exercises mastered:
From the Preliminary Exercises in this Course:
If you can’t even be aware of yourself with any sort of consistency, how are you supposed to be maintaining a connection with any sort of remote object? >maintain a connection with...<
Well, you need to be able to focus on an object long enough to be able to form a connection with it.
The object you are supposed to be visualizing here is not the practice object, it is the link. You should, with consistency, be focusing on maintaining a link with the object without getting distracted. I find that working on focusing exercises with mala beads to count breaks in focus helps. (traditionally mala beads are used to count time)
This allows your mind to create a more vivid scene than what you can create using just regular visualization alone.
From the Thought Primer:
Exercise #7: Focus on One Thought
You want to be able to focus on the thought of forming the link without distraction.
Exercise #8: Focus on One Aspect of an Object
You must be able to focus on the link building without losing focus.
From the Visualization Primer:
Exercise #1: Construct a Scene Visually
This exercise helps with the visualizing the forming of the link.
From Lesenthe’s “Constructs for Newbies”:
Have experience making and programming psi with some sort of objective verification, if possible.
Alright, that was a long list. Lets go over linking together. Linking tends to be the spot most people get stuck for various reasons. However, usually they get stuck because they have no idea how to stay focused for any length of time, have no idea how to consistently visualize without distraction, or they have no idea how to program psi. Failing at the linking stage basically means that you never formed a “connection” with the object. The idea here is that the mental connection is what allows you to move the object remotely.
To form a connection you need to:
1. Identify and focus on both yourself and the object.
2. Focus on a link forming between you and the object. Ideally, you use psi to form this link.
3. Focus on programming the link for the purpose of maintaining a connection between yourself and the object.
This should probably take a decent amount of time when you are first starting.
Now, you want to mentally “nudge” the object towards the idea of moving, in a gentle fashion. Make sure you maintain a relaxed state, and don’t allow your face to get all scrunched up. Do progressive relaxation exercises if this becomes a problem. You do not want to “force” the object to move mentally. You want to be confident that it is going to move, using the belief structure you formed in step #1. You want to use visualization and tactile visualization to “see” and “feel” the object moving. Experiment during this stage. Write down your results in your journal.
Length of Exercise: 7 Days
Practice Time: 20 - 30 minutes per day
1. Practice object that you made in exercise #2
2. Pen or pencil
3. Your journal
Step #1: Take on a Confident Belief Structure for the Purpose of the Practice
Be completely confident the object is going to move during the next moment.
Step #2: Mentally Form A Link From You to the Practice Object
Do this by:
1. Identifying and focusing on both yourself and the object.
2. Focusing on a link forming between you and the object. Ideally, you use psi to form this link.
3. Focusing on programming the link for the purpose of maintaining a connection between yourself and the object.
Do not continue until you have done this for at least 7 days and feel comfortable with it. You may or may not see success during this time frame. If you do not see success, that is fine. However, if you do not see success and you have not practiced the exercises I suggested, please go do that first. Remember to note your progress in your journal. If you get a headache or feel sick, you are instructed to stop immediately and get medical attention if necessary.
