What is Telekinesis?
Telekinesis or also known as psychokinesis, is a combination of two Greek words: psyche means “soul,” and kinesis means “motion.” It is a type of extrasensory perception very few people possess.
Telekinesis is defined as the phenomenon that allows individuals to move inanimate objects with the power of the mind. It is the ability to manipulate objects to move without physically touching them, and simply through mental power.
This psychic ability came into popular culture during the 70’s, when the world’s most famous psychic, Uri Geller, demonstrated a series of telekinetic powers, with the mind-boggling spoon bending as his most famous skill. Researchers and skeptics since then have tried to prove and disprove the ability, with no known scientific fact to either establish proof that it’s real or not.
Telekinesis is also a popular superpower among many superhero characters in comics and movies, such as the powerful Jean Grey and Professor X of the famous X-Men characters of Marvel Comics.
Of all psychic powers, telekinesis is said to be the rarest but can be learned and mastered.
How to Do Telekinesis
Concentration and believing is the key!
Because believers and practitioners believe that telekinesis can be learned, there are simple ways to develop this skill.
Every single person in the world is said to have psychic capacities with some being more in tune with their natural ability with some being completely unaware. And because of this, believers say that telekinesis can actually be learned and done by absolutely anyone.
So how do you do telekinesis exactly?
Step 1: Believe
The first thing that needs to happen is to believe. You have to believe that you can move objects with your mind. If you have fears or doubts or you absolutely do not believe in psychic abilities, then you will never learn telekinesis.
Telekinesis is largely based on the metaphysical world and you have to believe that there’s more to this world then what science has to say or what the rules of physics are.
Telekinesis defies several laws of physics and if you believe that everything can be explained through graphs, physical data, and years of studies, then you won’t be able to learn telekinesis.
The very first thing that needs to happen is to believe that telekinesis is real.
Step 2: Practice Concentration
There’s a popular notion that humans only use 10% of their brain power. And this might be true for most people but if you take the time to harness your brain’s ability, its capacity is boundless.
One of the ways to harness your brain power is to focus and concentrate. You need to master the practice of concentration. To start with, you can start practicing meditation. Meditation helps you concentrate as it calms the mind and eliminates distraction.

The only way to do telekinesis is to clear your mind and focus on moving objects and you before you are able to, you have to master mind over matter.
Step 3: Visualize
Once you’ve mastered concentration, choose objects around you. Look at them in full detail and memorize their features: their color, their shape, the corners, everything. So when you close your eyes, you can visualize that object in your mind in full detail.
Visualizing allows you to become one with the object, filling your brain with images of that object and that object only. Feel its color, its size, its shape, its features until your entire body is focusing on that object as well.
Once the object becomes part of you, visualize that object moving.
- How do you want it move?
- Do you want to move it sideways, forward, or backward?
- Or do you want it to fall from a table, or do you want it to elevate?
Visualize the object moving and really feel that it actually is.
Step 4: Practice Moving the Object
Now that your entire mind and body is filled with the object, look at that object, concentrate, and visualize it moving.
Even the smallest movement means you’re on the right track. If it’s not, then you have to get back to step 1 and ask yourself if you currently have any distractions or doubts, and practice concentrating some more.
You can also do telekinesis exercises to hone your ability.
1. The Psi Ball Exercise
This is a visualization exercise wherein you rub your palms together and create energy between your palms. Rub them together until your hands warm up, now separate your palms but still facing each other, and create an invisible ball with your two hands.
Feel the shape of the ball when you create it and feel its texture, its warmth or coolness, its smooth surface and its weight. Continue to feel and visualize this ball until it feels real in your hands.
This exercise is a practice of concentration and visualization, allowing you to feel something that’s not physically seen by the eye.
2. The Psi Wheel Exercise
Prepare the following:
- a piece of paper preferably a square that’s 4” wide and 4” in length
- a pin
- an eraser or cork
- a glass or jar
How to make a Psi Wheel - INSTRUCTION
1. Get a square piece of paper
2. Fold it diagonally both ways
3. Turn paper over & fold it half both ways
4. Push opposite centers together
5. Place it on pin and start spinning
Here is how we did it!
Fold the paper in half horizontally, then vertically so you have 4 parts of the paper. Fold the paper again diagonally on one side and diagonally again on the other side so you have 8 parts to the paper.
Stick the pin to the eraser so it can stand on its own. Place the piece of paper on top of the pin so it’s hanging by itself. Cover the psi wheel with the glass or jar so no air can come in and move the paper.
Now concentrate and focus your mind to move the paper inside the glass or jar. Move it to the left, to the right, or make it circle.
Keys to Making Telekinesis Work
There are 6 keys to making telekinesis work and these must be constants. You can’t just do them once and expect to have telekinetic powers tomorrow morning.
You have to meditate on a regular basis so your mind is calm and you have general peace of mind. It will also improve your focus and concentration.

2. Concentration Exercises
You have to practice concentration on a regular basis. Meditation and other concentration exercises must be done.
Practice looking at objects around you and memorizing their features. Do not just visualize on the things that you want to move but objects around you in general. Start with small objects and move on to bigger ones.
Do the telekinesis exercises or practice moving objects at will. You have to devote a lot of time to practicing until it becomes easy or natural for you. Once you can move smaller and lighter objects, try practicing how to bend a spoon.
5. Be Patient
Telekinesis makes use of your higher consciousness and it’s not easy to achieve. Some people practice and never access higher levels of their consciousness so don’t be in a hurry.
6. Always Believe
Even when it’s not working for you now, not working for you in weeks, or months, or even years, you still have to believe that telekinesis does work and it’s real.
Theories to How Telekinesis Works
Since telekinetic abilities became popular in mainstream media, hundreds of skeptics and researchers have tried to study the ability in the attempt to prove that it does exist or that it doesn’t.
Sadly, there has been no scientific data to prove that it is real, but there hasn’t been any data that show that it isn’t real, either.
Two theories that explain how telekinesis works are:
1. Quantum Connection
According to this theory, since matter is made of particles, the mind actually has the capacity to move these particles. Particles are made up of energies and since the mind is said to be made of energy, as well, it is believed that particles can be moved from the energies that come from the mind.
Because atoms are everywhere, it is believed that the energy emitted from the mind is able to move these atoms and therefore, our mind has the ability to move objects.
2. Magnetic Field
It is believed that the mind has a magnetic field and when used in its full capacity, the mind has the ability to push this magnetic field into the object you want to move.
Can Telekinesis Be Used to Make People Fly?
There is an assumption that telekinesis can give you the ability to fly, since moving objects is basically defying the laws of gravity and physics, and thus, it should be able to make people fly or even just levitate.
While there has been no evidence of telekinesis giving a person the ability to fly, levitation is said to be possible. When in deep concentration, there have been stories that Tibetan monks can levitate when they’re in a state of deep meditation, which is similar to what happens when a person with telekinetic powers is moving an object.
Telekinesis is considered to be pseudoscience since no scientific evidence has ever been submitted as evidence that it’s real. And because so many people have used telekinesis for theatrics and even magic shows, it has gotten a bad rep over the decades.
However, the vastness of the power of the mind has never really been studied in its entirety and whether or not telekinesis is under the realm of pseudoscience, it remains a fact that not everything in this world can be explained by science alone.
