The Psychic Power

Updated on July 6, 2014

The Long Reptile On The Prowl

Source

Bitten By a Snake In A laboratory

I was working in a laboratory when suddenly I found something going over my body and retreating quickly leaving a wound on my right hand middle finger. I did not feel any pain nor did I find any trace of blood oozing out of my body but the sight of the huge roaming reptile made me almost swoon and before I could recover my composure I had been surrounded by the scientists and the office staff saddened and totally perplexed observing such an unexpected scene.

I was new to this institute located in a rural area of West Bengal, which was set up for research on brackish water of the Sunderbans and I would shuttle everyday from Kolkata to reach this small town travelling almost one hour. Such a bizarre incident occurring never before in the history of the institute made every one panicky. Although snakes abound in such a locality but since there were many farmers and laborers working in the adjacent farm no one could think of any reptile sneaking into the secured premises of the lnstitute coiling up under the reagent desk and striking me all of a sudden. The officer in charge, a very nice gentleman, immediately summoned his officials to take urgent steps for my treatment and he carefully intimated the local health center for the purpose. I was soon taken to the center which was unlike a hospital and there was no physician available at that time. However, the nurses advised me to take some rest to allow them to watch me till such time the physician arrived. Since the nurses did not seem to act anyway in the absence of the specialized doctor we were nervous lest such unspecified halt should worsen my condition driving me to a point of no return. The senior most among us decided not to waste such a crucial time at the center with uncertainty about the treatment but to move to his nearby residence where his father was a spiritual guide attaining some psychic powers by which he was adept at charming and ejecting the venom of a serpent. We had no other option since leaving the town for taking me to Kolkata would be too risky!



The Psychic Experience

So we were safely ensconced in the quiet tin roofed house of my colleague who offered us tea and snacks and requested us to wait as his father had been busy in his daily rituals and worship. The typical village house had a beautiful garden with trees galore and a clean pond by the side. A gentle breeze was blowing giving us some respite in such a tense situation. After a brief wait the man clad in a spotless dhoti and a towel arrived and heard a brief account of the incident. “You sit on the mat cross legged, be free from worries and anxieties and pray to the Almighty only” he told me assuring us that I was in his safe hands. He then held a big bell metal dish on my back. Imagine our surprise when the dish clang on to my back unaided as he began his incantation without any pause! After nearly 10 minutes the utensil seemed to loosen its hold and the spiritual guide stopped his spell and placed the dish properly afresh when it appeared to grip my back firmly again. I also prepared myself for the second round with my back upright and watching the proceedings silently. Then again the charm was repeated and after a lesser duration of time the dish seemed to fall off my back. On the fourth such occasion the bell metal dish was found not to grip my back at all even after such magical words of the charmer who then announced gladly that the venom had disappeared from my body and assuring firmly that there were no chances of any relapse. We offered him his dues and I came back to Kolkata in the evening,

My mother had already received the news of my being snake bitten and she was relieved to find me back after waiting patiently for such a long period. But her worries seemed not too dim and I was advised to rush forthwith to a city hospital for further checkup. The attending physician observed me totally and pushed an anti tetanus injection only.

Although many years have since elapsed, I do not yet know whether the snake was venomous or not but I still wonder at the incredible psychic power of the charmer how his incantation caused the heavy bell metal dish to stick to the erect body and the dish lost its grip as soon as he declared that the body was free of the venom!

      @MizBejabbers- Your instant response speaks highly of your agility and determination. I shall definitely try to narrate my experience soon. As for my English let me explain that it is my second language but I do have a strong penchant for writing in the great language my lifelong experience based on which several of my stories have already been published. Thanks again for the interest shown in my write-ups.

      Thanks for such a quick reply. I am very interested in your proposed story to see how the ascetic person found the water. I do have the skill of dowsing for water, and so do both of my sons.

      @MizBejabbers-Thank you very much for your visit and inputs which only authenticate my story. I wish to write another story relating to our receiving abundant supply of ground water in an arid land with the help of such strange power of an ascetic person, which can not be explained by natural laws.

      Arun, You told me that English is not your native language, and I think you handle it very well. I enjoyed this very much. I would love to see some real Eastern psychics. I attended the Little Rock Psychic Institute for 7 years and was around some really good psychics, but I certainly haven’t developed my powers to that level. I am 3rd level Reike and hope to become a Reike master. I will definitely read more of your stories. Voted you up++.

      It is really interesting to read this Arun. i believe he nullified the effects of the snake venom if he did not remove it from your body.

      Wow! Fascinating, Arun. I have yet to see a charmer at work and would have been in the same puzzled shock as you! Thanks for sharing. I am passing this on!
