What is Visualization?--by Christine B.

Positive thinking has long been associated with making things happen in your life…. In other words, if you think positive, positive things will happen. Visualization is sort of like that, only super sized! Visualization means to literally make something happen merely by thinking about it. Visualization is a form of telekinesis.

The best example of someone with this ability is psychic Uri Geller. Geller was popular in the mid-70s and 80s and was seen almost weekly on one television program or another. He would concentrate on bending a spoon using only his thought processes and it would bend. He claimed to be able to make other things happen as well, merely by thinking about them. When asked how he does it in an interview Geller replied, “That’s a very interesting question,” Uri replied. “I actually bend a spoon just by wishing or commanding it to bend. I don’t go into trance or meditate to be able to do it. I just wish it to happen, and it happens.”

So, if it works for Uri, perhaps there are others who are capable of this sort of mind control. Is it possible that Houdini, the famous magician, could have also used his mind to unlock and escape from the many torture vaults he subjected himself to? This could explain his great expertise as being an escape artist, being a contortionist, notwithstanding.

It’s possible that other great magicians have used this psychic power while performing, as well. Not all magic is illusion.

Scientists from all over the world have conducted experiments using the power of visualization with great success. (Dr. Willam Tiller from Stanford; Masaru Emoto from Japan among others.)

The human mind has capabilities that are far greater than we have yet to discover.

      I don't think I have ever read or have seen an instance where Uri Geller was proven to be a fake. Please provide details of your accusations.

      I thought that spoon bending was found to be fake. Some scientist was able to find a solution that one can rub on metal and it causes it to heat, so it eventually bends. Also, a spoon bender was embarrassed live on TV, I think in the Johnny Carson Show, once because they switched the spoons.
