Image from CatherineNodet (link) Pyrokinesis Pyrokinesis is a form of Psychokinesis and is the manipulation of fire. It is one of the most favorite kinesis among beginners because of it has a more 'flashy' look to it. In this article I will be explaining what pyrokinesis is and a few techniques to try out for both beginner and advanced Psions. When I first started and began studying psionics I was of course like most, drawn to pyrokinesis and the attractive aspect of being able to create fire from midair, (I watched a lot of cartoons at the time I was around eight years old so excuse me for sounding so immature and childish). I desperately scoured the internet and learned many techs which I have learned over the years, though this was after learning aerokinesis and training my mind for a long time. Here I will be giving beginner methods which many of the more advanced will probably recognize. Beginner Techniques: Generate your psionic energy and light a candle in front of you. Stare deep into the flame and take a few deep breaths, now outstretch a finger towards the flame, close, but not to close as to burn your finger. Now visualize your psionic energy linking with the flame, Feel the fire become part of your body. Once you feel like you have made a connection, simply will the fire to pulse along with your heartbeat. I have tried and succeeded in this technique and it worked for me the very first time I tried it, (this is a technique I have improved from another I found on other sites). Light a candle in front of you. Stare deep into the flame and take a few deep breaths, connect with the flame. Once the connection is made close your eyes, and visualize in your mind’s eye the flame, nothing but the flame in the darkness, now focus on it and visualize as vividly as possible the flame bending, like a crescent moon, extend a finger and bend it, will the flame to move along with it like it is nothing but an extension of your finger, with enough practice the flame will bend along with your finger. This tech i actually made myself, tested and succeeded in. Light a candle in front of you. Take several deep breaths, inhale and exhale as many times as you feel you need until you continue. Connect with the flame. Now pay attention to your breath, (I actually made this technique using an aerok technique i made a while ago, also in my articles). Breathe in a shallow breath, but as you do feel the flame rise along with it, exhale and take another deep breath, slightly deeper this time, again feel the flame rise with your inhale. Exhale and repeat this continuing your breathing deeper and deeper until you raise it as much as possible. Advanced Techniques: Place a lit candle in front of you. Connect with the flame. Now stare into the blue base of the flame. Focus as hard as you possibly can on intensifying the heat of the flame and turn blue, feel the flame as if it were within yourself burning and heating and outstretch a finger, inhale deeply and instead of the flame rising the blue flame should intensify itself and turn the entire flame blue, even if it is just for a second it will be noticeable. I have tried and succeeded in this myself so it is possible trust me. Place a lit candle in front of you. Connect with the flame. Close your eyes and visualize as vividly as possible in your mind’s eye the flame, feel its energy within yourself, Now visualize the vibrating atoms of the wick of the candle like miniature suns. Outstretch your open palm to the flame and slowly begin closing your fist. As you close your fist visualize as much as you possibly can, the miniature hot suns vibrating slower and slower, until its barely moving at all. Of course it is impossible to completely immobilize atoms from vibrating but, with enough practice a flame can be snuffed out with this, this tech is made by me of course, though I have not completely managed to snuff the flame out just turn it incredibly small, almost unrecognizable from a lit flame but never completely snuffed out. Place an unlit candle in front of you. Summon psionic energy to your fingertips. Once you are happy that you have summoned enough psionic energy, focus all of it to your index finger. Now close your eyes and in your mind’s eye visualize tiny balls that make up the wick in front of you. Now visualize and as you visualize start streaming psionic energy into the wick, visualizing the balls vibrating faster and faster, as the vibrations speed up so does the rate of psionic energy going into the wick. The faster the vibrations the more heat is made, when you feel it is ready open your eyes and visualize the flame bursting forth, in that millisecond you imagine it bursting forth match it with psionic energy. The wick should ignite. This technique was improved by me but I have only done this once, though I do not try it often. Final Notes: Those were my techniques i hope they help you in the future.
