When I was about 14 my parents sent me to a retreat in arizona. Basically it was a retrreat that focused on personal energy and being positive about yourself. We learned tricks that used i guess you can say chi and focusing on what you want to do.
one of the tricks we did was bend an actual Solid Steel Rod with my own leg by focusing on it and using energy. We also did tricks where if you focused on yourself being Heavy, our 250 pound counselor couldnt pick us up because we focused on being heavy.
Does anyone know sites where i can Re learn this stuff?
It is not a magic trick though. It was us actually bending steel. It wasnt a magic camp or any thing like that.
But I would like to get back into that

  1. I’ve heard of that. I know to an extent it exists in some forms of Buddhism. I don’t know where you could find more info, but could you tell me where you find it? I’m interested 🙂
    Btw, have you ever tried to see someone’s aura? That’s fun 🙂

  2. Heh, those are just very simple stunts concentrating on structural weaknesses, and other exploitable elements of physics, which create an illusion of magic.
    Nothing mystical about it.

  3. It is always good to hear claims of magical stuff. I have had a few experiences myself but if you can prove something magical scientifically there is a one million dollar prize going.
    As to your question there are many traditions that claim to help. Aikido and other martial arts sometimes claim such supernatural focusing powers similar to what you are asking for.
    The scientific claim is that thinking powerful thoughts and visualization of successes causes your subconscious to work to make your dreams come true.
    As to stopping clocks or bending spoons etc. Science says it can’t happen so if you learn how to bend things with your mind let me get you in contact with the people offering the prize or let me write you up in a paper so we both can be famous.

The Methods Of Zen Meditation

In layman's term, Zen meditation is letting go of pessimistic thoughts and simply relaxing. In Buddhism, it is a contemplative discipline performed to achieve calmness in the mind and body. Most importantly, it aims for a practitioner to understand the nature of life to obtain enlightenment. To fully experience positive results of Zen meditation, there are three general methods to consider such as Concentration; Koan Introspection; and Shikantaza.

Meditation for Contacting Spirit Guides

The guide is not outside, the guide is within you. One has to go deeper into one's own being to find God and the guide. Once the inner guide is found there are no more mistakes, no repentance, no guilt.

How to perform Yoga Nidra : Art of Yogi Sleep

Yoga nidra or yogi sleep has been used for thousands of years by yogis. In the Upanishads, there are three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and deep sleep. Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.
