Introduction One of the many stops on the road to glory when it comes to learning and being actually good at Psionics is connections. Just like knowing and understanding your energy system, energy manipulation, constructs, and projections; Connections is probably one of the most important skills in Psionics. If you don't know Connections then you really can't really do anything. Most people come into Psionics blind and wing it and get some results but end up defeated after many tries and misinformation from people who think they know something about the fundamentals. What are connections? Connections are semi-advanced strands of energy that are sometimes formed naturally when you meet someone new. These connections can either grow or break. What is connections when used in Psionics? In Psionics connections are very important because they allow us to connect to a target or a friend and actually do or perceive what are abilities actually doing. Connections are to blame when someone scans your energy system, or when a empath reads your emotions, or when a EWer jams you. Details on Types of Connections There are two main types of connections: One Way Connections and Two Way connections. One Way connections are active connections. Which means usually someone creates it; they don't naturally grow. It is made up of energy with two focal points (focal points is simply where the connection is able to attach to). A one way connection is made from the originator and is attached to his or her target. Energy and information is passed from the orginator and passed through the connection to the target. Since it is a one way connection the target can not send energy and information back to the originator. Two Way Connection This type of connection can be created naturally every time we meet someone or actually get to know someone. This type of connection is most common and has the potential to become a bond. Two Way connections can also be active by an originator creating it between a friend to share energy and information (such as emotions as thoughts.) Why do we need connections if they form naturally? That's the thing. Sometimes they don't form or are not strong enough to be used. If you don't have connections with certain people then your ability or skill effect is not directed and will most likely not work. Your abilities need to be target to a certain person (unless your going for an area of effect) and the connection will allow your ability to "lock on". Most Psions don't lock on and then their target tells them nothing happened. Connections are very important! If you have any questions then leave a post below.
