By Bruce King, D.C. –

My first psychokinetic experience happened to me when I just a boy of six. Somehow I had gotten the idea that I could influence the roll of a dice with my thoughts. I decided one afternoon to test out this theory by sequentially rolling the number six as many times as I could.

I sat in the middle of my room in front of a short piece of cardboard that I had leaned onto a shoebox so I could place a dice at the top and have it roll down to the bottom, (My six-year-old mind figured that this set up was more scientific than simply rolling the dice with my hand.) I set my mental intention to have the dice show the number six, and then placed it at the top of the board. The dice tumbled down and stopped at the bottom. I was happy to see that I had indeed rolled a number six on my very first try. Pretty good, but could I do it again? I set the dice up on the board a second time and watched it go down. What do you know, another number six. I began to think that this thought power stuff just might work. Once again, I placed the dice at the top of the cardboard slope, closed my eyes, and intended to have the dice show the same number a third time. The dice went down the board and stopped. I opened my eyes to see a third six staring me in the face.

The odds of rolling consecutive number sixes on a dice increases the more you roll the dice. The odds of rolling three sixes in a row (using the multiplication method) is 1 in 216 rolls; high odds, but not on the scale of impossible. Still, my intention from the beginning was to roll a number six, which I did at least three times in a row.

Now I was really excited. I started to roll the dice a fourth time when I heard my mother calling me for lunch. I hesitated, knowing that I could probably continue to get number sixes for as long as I wanted, but then I thought to myself, “Hey, I can go tell my brother about this great discovery!” So I ran into the dining area where my older brother sat eating his lunch. I excitedly told him about my amazing feat and he promptly called me a liar and said it was impossible to roll the same number over and over. And that was that. I never tried rolling an intended number again. I actually didn’t even mention this event to anyone again until I told my wife about it thirty years later.

Why didn’t I run back to my room after lunch and continue rolling number sixes? Fear. I was afraid that my brother was right. Maybe it all had just been a coincidence. My strength of belief was no longer the same. My career at the casino craps table was over before it had even begun.

Fortunately, I have had many more mind power experiences since the dice rolling incident, so my confidence in thought power was not totally shattered at age six.

Perhaps you have had a similar incident happen. Maybe not a psychokinetic experience like my dice rolling but some other event that made you question conventional thinking about the physical world. Something as simple as an intuitive insight that turned out to be true, a precognitive dream, or even a telepathic experience. I have met so many people who have had paranormal events happen to them that I never cease to be amazed. The one thing that most of these people have in common is a fear of telling someone about it. They are afraid that someone will call them crazy. Just like my brother called me a liar and told me it was impossible to roll the same number over and over.

Science says you are not crazy for having these experiences. There is tremendous research proving that some supernatural experiences are very real. Of course, there is such a thing as cognitive bias, self-hypnotism and downright delusion, but that does not mean that at least some of your experiences are not real.
