Telekinesis refers to the paranormal ability to manipulate matter, time and space with mental energy. Skeptics believe it to be the stuff of science fiction, but others believe it to be a real ability that everyone can learn with patience and practice. Full mastery of telekinesis techniques can take years of practice, but it is possible to learn at least some of the basics in a week.

Start with the basics of energy manipulation. When most people think of telekinesis, they imagine moving objects with their minds. While that is a big part of telekinesis, it is perhaps more accurate to say telekinesis is closer to manipulating the energy around the object. Therefore, you should begin with easy energy manipulation: Sit in a comfortable position and hold an object in the palm of your hand. Close your eyes, relax and let go of the day’s thoughts. Slowly run your hand along the object while focusing on it until you can feel its energy. When you think you’re ready, bend the energy with your will. This will take some practice, but it’s an easy way to develop beginning telekinetic abilities.

Practice with different objects without touching them. Focus on the object for about 10 minutes until you can feel its energy. Once you can feel the object’s energy, visualize it moving or bending.

Attempt to move the object once you can feel its energy and visualize it moving. Remain totally relaxed while you are attempting to move the object. Chances are you will not be able to move the object immediately, so don’t get discouraged when it doesn’t work at first.
