Telekinesis: real people with superpowers

uri gellerI have already posted an article on telekinesis in which I gave general information about this phenomenon and told about several scientific experiments on it. Now I’m going to speak of real examples of people known for telekinetic powers.

The case of spontaneous telekinesis happened to a French girl Angelica Cottin, when she was 14 years old. On the evening of January 15, 1846 she and three village girls were embroidering. Suddenly embroidery fell out of their hands and a lamp was thrown in the corner. Girls accused Angelica, because in her presence strange things always happened: furniture was moving, chairs were flying around the room.

Her parents organized a show in Mortane in order to earn some money. The girl caught the attention of a Parisian scientist François Arago. When the girl was in “electrified” condition almost everything that was in contact with her clothes was bouncing off. When Argo was trying to touch the girl he was experiencing a shock like after touching a source of electric current. If Angelica was close to a magnet even without knowing about it she began to shake. A compass however didn’t react to her presence. Most items that were moving were made of wood.

Angelica was not the only one who had this ability. In 1888 Dr. Ercole Ciaia from Naples described a wonderful medium Eusapia Palladino: “This woman attracts the surrounding items and lifts them into the air. She plays musical instruments without touching them.”

A well-known psychiatrist Professor Cesare Lombroso was shocked by what she did. She was moving furniture in the direction of the audience, and was materializing immaterial hands in the air, which looked real.

One of the most mysterious and famous person known for telekinetic abilities is a Soviet housewife Nina Kulagina. She had a number of very unusual abilities, studied by more than 40 scientists for nearly twenty years. But no one didn’t manage to find a scientific explanation of the phenomenal abilities of this woman. There is much evidence of these experiments in form of videos and documentary films. So what was Nina Kulagina capable of? She could move small objects by the power of thought or change the trajectory of their movement without touching them; she had an ability to emit ultrasonic waves, which is documentary proved. Till now it remains a mystery what the nature of these powers was and how the woman managed to develop them.

Ninel Kulagina was not the only documented example of the manifestations of telekinesis. A mystery person Uri Geller, born in Tel Aviv in 1946, has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to deform metal objects. From the age of four he revealed an ability to bend metal spoons by the power of thought. The so-called “Geller effect” became well known, when scientists observed him.  It was said that he could read minds, bend keys and other metal items simply by touching them or even looking at them.

In 1966 a British psychologist Kenneth J. Batcheldor after 20 years of studying the phenomena of telekinesis, published several reports that contained a conclusion that psychokinesis is possible. However, a question of how the mind produces psychokinetic effects is still awaiting its decision.

What kind of power is it? Where does it come from? There are incredible number of hypotheses and assumptions. Most believe that these abilities are hidden in non-performing segments of the human brain, which is able to generate powerful force fields and waves that affect the physical world. Others take the view that such powers are hidden in energetic structure of the human body, and everyone can simply learn to discover and manage it to get hold of these supernatural powers. Who is right no one knows. But I want to believe that any of us has hidden unrealized potential and capabilities…

    It’s an interesting article, I have read and some cases remember things that happen to me. Happens everyday, it were stronger and even life threatning when I was younger, but I feel, I know somehow, that it’s okay now because I was too young and any supernatural powers or abilities were still in development.
    I never did move things with my mind, yet though. But I did sometimes emit ultrasonic waves, and I have seen energy in the physical plane. Whenever I go to sleep, sometimes I wake up with a mass energy wave around my body. So strong that hurts my brain and makes my heart hurt too, sometimes it makes my bones hurt for many hours. It happens when I face a strong emotion or try to take control of a lucid dream, it is so strong in the dream that when I wake up I can feel my skin having little shocks, and the air around me gets heavier.
    I noticed that the more we hear others telling us that those things aren’t possible, the more further away we will be from our dreams, when I was younger i could control air currents(Here on Brazil is very very hot on summer), but my parents, religious fanatics that believe that everything that doesn’t come form the church is from hell, said to me and made me believe and block my mind to the wind. But I can still make a very weak wind around me.
    Also, aside from the physical things, I have visions that always occur. I have seen in dreams people that I never met before, hundreds, and eventually I met them. In those cases, the scene that I saw in the dream happens when the vision comes true, exactly I as have seen them.
    Also my intuition is very strong, and I can sense people, predict things about those, and read them using their spiritual energy.
    I want to prove that everything is real, but I do not know how to begin. Of course, some experiments proved that energy generated by hundreds of human minds, and feelings, can make powerful energy waves. I don’t remember the name exactly. But I do feel that the general opinion that nothing is possible affects the possibility of manifestation of those abilities. And it’s even worse now that we have social networks and internet. After all, on net a person may have a true story of supernatural happenings, but all the thoughts about it being fake feeds the general thought of “nothing is possible”, back in old times the thought that blocks that wasn’t so strong, everyone believed because there were no explanations, now people can see scientific research and atheism on everything really easily.
    The thing said in magic(I’m pagan) is that the mind blocks it, if that is true, then if billions of minds think that isn’t possible, and one single mind think it is, the overwhelming force of that collective thought would block that.
    I think that’s why all the cases of supernatural ocurrings are before 2000, and rarely happens today. Maybe there are hundreds of people with the natural ability to use it, but they are being shut down yearly in their lives, by facebook, internet and false magicians, they are made in the belief that Magic is something made of illusions.
    In places where technology isn’t that present, in old places, supernatural ocurrings are being told off very often. After all it’s easier for people to belief in the supernatural when the scientific explanation isn’t present, they will believe with their hearts.

    Well I have spoken too much, I hope we can make contact. And keep believing in the possibility that everyone can do it. Dream and belief is the key to unlock your hidden powers. Sadly, sometimes is just one against hundreds of millions.

  2. What Marcos said is totally true. I recently discovered through meditation that i could feel and create electromagnetism and move light materials.
    I believe telekinesis has something to do with the gamma-rays produced by our brains.

  3. When I was between ten or 12 years old, I had an out of body experience. It lasted for at least 15 to 20 minutes. I had fallen asleep upstairs in my attic laying right beside my sister who was already asleep. I was only several minutes into a deep sleep I suppose. The next thing I know, I’m rising from up out of my own body and started floating in mid air. As I started floating, I became extremely puzzled and a little worried, but as I was floating, just before I floated out of the attic, I turned around and seen both of our bodies laying sleep on the floor..I wondered what this was or how could it be. The attic had a flight of stairs going down near the bathroom, into the hallway and into my parent’s room. I floated down the stairs, pass the bathroom, down the hallway and stopped above my parent’s bedroom door,and looked down on them and wondered.. I believe they were watching the news..but it was definitely a television program. The experience was quite strange because, as I’ve studied to understand it now that I’m older, the surrounding was very energized…like static or high vibration, but everything was clear. Everything was black and white, there was nothing in color. After floating above my parent’s door for several minutes, somehow, I returned to my body in the attic. I think it was instant. Then I woke up, walked downstairs and approached my parents to ask how they were doing, them not knowing what had happened.
