I don't do this stage when I'm bending forks by myself,
but it probably really helps when you're first starting
out. It probably does help to channel whatever the
energy is. I just don't have that kind of attention
span, which may be why I'm not as good at the whole
forkbending thing as some people. Hopefully you're
a bit better at it than me.
the fork or spoon between your thumb and forefinger.
Relax, and clear your mind. Breathe slowly and deeply.
Listen to your own breathing, and feel the rise and fall
of your chest. Imagine you are at a place where you feel
most relaxed - on a beach, in a forest, lying beside
a log fire - whatever place your mind will take you where
you feel totally at ease. The stresses of the world are
far, far away. You do not feel sleepy, but you are totally
relaxed... totally carefree... safe... comfortable...
imagine a golden ball of energy a few feet above your
head. It's spinning and fizzing. You can feel warmth
and energy emanating from it. A beam comes out of this
ball of energy and into your forehead. It feels warm
and tingly. You are drawing energy from the ball in a
stream. No matter how much energy you pull from the ball,
you can still draw more. It is a ball of limitless energy.
You can feel the warmth of the energy spreading from
the point on your forehead. It feels beautiful, like
warm champagne flowing over your skin, bubbling and tingling.
The energy flows over your shoulder and down your arm.
that nomatter how much you draw from the ball, there
is limitless energy there still. You feel strong and
invigorated, but relaxed. The energy flows down your
arm, over your elbow and wrist and into your hand. You
can feel it's warmth on your skin, flowing into your
head.... over your shoulder... down your arm.... past
your elbow.... into your hand. You can feel the heat
of the energy collecting in your hand, in your thumb
and forefinger. You can feel it welling up there, with
nowhere to go, like a dead-end.

up the lights as soon as the channelling talk-through
is over, and you're all ready for the next stage.
