What Is The Psi Wheel?
The psi wheel first made its debut when The Power was released in 1968. It showed a group of witnesses stunned by a person turning a psi-wheel using psychokinesis. Since then psi wheel has been a training tool for interested parties to practice their telekinetic power.
Psychokinesis is the ability to shift or move objects using the power of the mind, a more specific term compared to telekinesis (moving things). Think Xmen’s Jean Grey, she could use psychokinesis to levitate herself off the ground, among other telepathic powers.
Building a Psi-Wheel
The simplest way to train your mind towards this power is to build a psi wheel, it is a rudimentary tool, and easy to assemble using household items. However, it is no longer the standard in which telekinesis is measured, it is merely a way you can train telekinetic powers if you have not done so before. It is not the only tool at your disposal when it comes to training. To make a psi wheel, you will need:
- A solid base: cork, clay, or anything you can poke through but stay stable.
- Something with a pointy end: needle or toothpick
- Something to move: Paper or aluminum foil, 2 inches by 2 inches, folded diagonally so it forms an inverted pyramid. You can find pictures online to see how it is done. The heavier the pyramid material, the less likely the spin will be due to air movement or heat generated by your palms.
Moving the Psi Wheel
To start practicing, put both hands on the assembly as if to form a cup, and try to move the foil with your will. While some can demonstrate the spinning wheel on the first try, more people tend to require more practice. If you are successful, you can always up the ante by putting a barrier. it can be a glass jar over the wheel to stop other elements from moving the wheel. The next level involves stopping the wheel. And, changing the direction of the psi wheel in the glass dome.
It is not your mind that is moving the wheel. Rather, you are directing the life energy in the universe to move the pyramid with your mind. It is a demonstration of willpower. Of course, you can train your willpower, like your focus towards something such as psychokinesis.
While you may not be able to levitate yourself, having the ability to focus with such intensity is beneficial for many other aspects of life. You can practice the following techniques if you have trouble turning the wheel, or you are aiming for a bigger goal:
1. Visualize the energy
The aim is to visualize the energy flowing through you in blue or red, the line of energy can extend or expand to the psi wheel, making it a part of your energy. After connecting with the wheel, you can try to feel the energy pushing or pulling against your hands as you manipulate the line, and the psi wheel to move.
Some find themselves seeing electromagnetic fields and how their mind can manipulate that field to move the wheel. With fields, the trick is to visualize a pulling or pushing effect to rotate the psi wheel.
2. Visualize a string
Imagine a string attached to the psi wheel, and with your mind, focus on pulling the string in the direction that you want. Although initially, you might succeed in making the paper wobble rather than turn, however, any progress is good progress. Once you get the hang of it, you can manipulate the psi wheel like a puppet, guiding it to rotate in the direction that you want.
3. Manipulate the potential
Everything has potential energy, the physics rule is energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be converted. You can activate the psi wheel’s potential energy by focusing your willpower on the wheel. Then imagine converting it to kinetic energy. It is best to visualize the changed energy moving in one direction, hence rotating the psi wheel.
It is worth mentioning the reasons why people learn to manipulate energy, as the wheel is a tool people use to train their minds to visualize and focus. In Chinese Chi Gong, this method of manipulating energy is used for visualizing a field. Or a ball and push/ pull it along the pressure points to help “open” the points for better energy flow.
In India, the energy is manipulated to flow down the heart: a physical object, using mental energy alone. In Western society, psychokinesis involves more on moving objects a certain distance or bending a spoon.
No matter what reasons you learn psychokinesis, the only constant is that practice makes you stronger. You can use as many techniques as you would like to train your mind. The focus is the key and the lock is your mind. Once you unlock your potential, moving the wheel will only be the first step.
