Want to get started spoon bending? Of course you do! Everyone does. It’s one of the most fun party tricks out there.
Spoon bending points to remember
Here are a couple points to remember, though:
- It is way easier to spoon bend in a small group than it is by yourself. There’s a group energy that gets established that makes it easier to succeed in a group.
- Get yourself some good-quality forks for your spoon bending. Don’t buy cheap stuff. Go to places like Kmart or Target or Walmart and buy their best quality, not their cheapest. Or hit up some flea markets or some thrift stores.
- And buy forks not spoons. Spoons are okay, but forks are amazing.
- Have extra pieces available. Once you succeed, you’re gonna want to do it again. It’s like potato chips: You can’t bend just one…
Why is it spoon bending and not fork bending?
Why forks? It’s because if you have a good quality fork, it’s virtually impossible to bend a single tine of a fork with your fingers. Unless you’re The Incredible Hulk. (You’re not…are you? If you are, you don’t need spoon-bending help.) Try it with the fork you’ve selected. If your fork is so flimsy that you can bend a single tine, it’s too flimsy to use. Choose a better quality fork.
Okay, gather a few friends, maybe 3 to 6, to make a small group. The first thing you’re going to do is learn how to sense and move your chi energy around. The exercises I’m going to suggest are adapted from my friend Robert Bruce’s energy exercises. (Check out his website at AstralDynamics.com )
Start spoon bending with some simple chi energy manipulation
I’m putting together a brief video to illustrate this exercise, which should be posted in a few days. But in the meantime, here is the basic exercise. Practice these steps; they’re really easy. As always, turn off radio, television, etc. and concentrate on what you’re doing. The keys to success are focus and concentration.
- Sit comfortably and hold one hand so it’s palm up (I’m going to assume this is your left hand, but either will do).
- Support your hand and arm somehow–on a table, the arm of your chair, whatever is comfortable for you wherever you are.
- With the fingertips of your other hand, lightly brush from the base of your palm to the fingertips. So, if you’re holding your left hand palm up, you’ll use your right fingers to lightly brush from the base of your left palm to the fingertips of your left hand.
- Brush your upheld hand back and forth from palm to fingertips, fingertips to palm, palm to fingertips. Concentrate on the sensations you experience in your upheld hand and palm.
- Keep brushing back and forth until you feel you have memorized what that feels like. That memory is crucial.
- When you think you have that memory pretty well established, stop brushing and see if you can recreate in your mind the sensations you experienced.
- If you can’t recreate the memory, go back to brushing back and forth to clarify your memory of the sensation.
- What sensations do you experience in your hand? These do vary from person to person, but may include any combination of:
- prickling sensation
- other unusual sensations
- Once you have that down pat, switch hands and repeat the process.
What you’re doing is making yourself aware of the chi energy you have. You’re activating the many, many small minor chakras in your hands and becoming aware of the energy they can access. There are only two other areas with minor chakras more densely packed than in your hands. Those areas are your genital area and your feet. (Yes, your feet!)
So…for extra credit, repeat the above sequence brushing your feet. If you have one of those cat toys with a feather on a stick, it’ll be easier to brush the bottom of your feet in a comfortable position. Do take your shoes and socks off first!
Learning how to access and activate the chakras in your hands and feet are energy basics. So practice this until you can do it at will.
Have fun…and if you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
