Each man's "power" is different. To lump us all together is a big mistake. Some men's powers are greater than others. To believe or not believe is also a power of sorts. I have chosen to believe. I have seen things, felt things and experienced things that have allowed me the ability to understand and believe. I was/am fortunate in such regards. For that which I took for granted at one time in my life as being "how it is" turned out to be NOT how it was at all. Upon this realization my perspective on reality shifted dramatically. A profound effect was upon me that was to last an entire lifetime. The difference between vastly separate realities is truly just a very thin veil.
I have seen men catapulted across the room by a mere flick of a finger. I have witnessed men who could not stop crying, laughing or vomiting until they were "released". The effects varied and were diverse in nature it seemed. Other times men were sent flying backward into the wall by a sharp piercing scream (ki-ai) and little else. I too felt the touch at age forty when my heart was stopped from 600 yards away as a demonstration trick of mind intent. (similar to the Russian Colonel's "mind strike") I was then revived - IE: brought back to life. Many of you reading this already know of whom I speak. Some of you knew this man too. He affected us all in some way.
One energy can do a thousand things. The thousand things originate from the sun source of the one. The honest skill lies in manipulating energy in ways that manifest their effects in the physical world. This is done mainly through intent. Power of the will is first applied, next a focused intent as the spirit is awakened and rises upwards from the heels. A laser-like concentration of body, mind, spirit into one force directed by the mind through the gaze and hands. Once this is realized many doors will simply open before you. An old saying teaches us this:
"expect a miracle every day"! This is not too far off from the truth my friends once you set your feet upon this path.
Internal martial arts, Taoist yoga, Aikido, Silat and many other disciplines recognize the "force". It is the universal bio-energy of all things. Call it ki, qi, chi, prana or what have you, it's all the same in it's primordial state. Some people heal others with it, some have tapped into the destructive side. A few people have specialized their energies and are focused upon singular goals. Psychokinesis (from Greek ψυχή "mind" + κίνησις "movement"), or telekinesis (from τῆλε "far off" + κίνησις "movement"), is an alleged psychic ability allowing a person to influence a physical system without physical interaction. Psychokinesis and telekinesis are sometimes abbreviated as PK and TK respectively. During the sixties and seventies the soviets made some huge gains in these mysterious areas.
The ability to push or pull objects is often seen as "ling kong jing" from internal kung fu methods. But in the west we have similar things that are dubbed "psychokinesis" - see this demonstration here of the western methods.
