Title: Harnessing the Power of Your Mind: A Simple Experiment with Immediate Results
In the realm of consciousness studies and mind-body interactions, fascinating experiments demonstrate the impact our thoughts and emotions can have on the physical world. One such experiment that yields almost immediate results involves an "energy spinner." This article explains how to create and use an energy spinner, featured in the second video of my free four-part course, "Change Your Thoughts Transform Your Life!" available at www.mikepettigrew.com/keys.
**Creating the Energy Spinner**
To start this experiment, gather the following items:
Thick aluminum foil (the type you'd use for freezing food).
A pin or needle.
A pair of scissors.
A pencil eraser (or a small lump of plasticine or modeling clay).
With these materials, you're going to create your energy spinner. Use a ruler or straight edge to draw a cross shape onto the aluminum foil. Each leg of the cross should be approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) long and about a quarter of an inch (half a centimeter) wide. Cut out the cross with your scissors, then make a slight indentation at the center of the cross with your pencil. Bend each leg of the cross at approximately a 45° angle.
Next, embed the base of the needle into the pencil eraser (or plasticine/modeling clay). The point of the hand should be pointing upwards, with the blunt end facing downwards. Balance your aluminum cross on the tip of the pin - your energy spinner is now complete.
**Manipulating the Energy Spinner**
Here comes the fun part. By focusing your mind and emotions, you should be able to control the spinner's rotation - clockwise, anticlockwise, or even stopping it entirely.
Cup your hands on either side of the spinner (without touching it), and with practice, you should be able to get the spinner rotating in both directions. If you're struggling to make the spinner move, try to evoke a feeling of gratitude. This emotion can act as a catalyst, affecting your physical body and environment and enhancing energy flow.
You can make the spinner rotate anticlockwise by imagining energy traveling down your right arm and out of your right hand. Focusing the feeling of gratitude down your left arm and out your left hand can make it rotate in the opposite direction.
Maintaining a relaxed body and mind and keeping your arms and hands in a comfortable position is essential. Don't force the spinner to move with your mind, as this can backfire. Instead, maintain a "disinterested interest" - intend for the spinner to rotate, but don't worry if it doesn't. The power of gratitude and trust will naturally enhance the spinner's movement.
As you become proficient at controlling the spinner, you'll learn firsthand about the powerful effects of mind over matter. This experiment reveals the fascinating interplay between your thoughts, emotions, and the physical world and provides valuable insights into harnessing your mind's power to achieve your goals. So, get your materials ready, and discover the power of your mind!
