The Strangest Thing Happened

Watch Creative CommonsSo…the strangest thing happened to me when I was a kid.

It was about 1975 and Uri Geller of spoon bending fame had been on TV supposedly bending spoons and starting broken watches with his mind.  He was saying that his power, although awesome, was not special.  That we all had similar power, but had convinced ourselves that we didn’t.

I was very intrigued.

Although my mother said she didn’t quite believe him, she must have believed him enough that I was not allowed to start bending our spoons with my mind!

She did, however, give me an old watch of hers that had stopped working years before.  I could give it a go.

I sat in my bed, focused on that watch, believing that I had the power to make it work. After about an hour of doing this the strangest thing happened.

It started working.  Yup.  It started working.

I must say I was blown away.  In a way I couldn’t believe it. Had I caused the watch to start working?  My mind that was so focused on getting it to work now was doubting.  After about an hour it stopped working and it didn’t start again.

That was a long, long time ago, but I never did forget it.  Uri Geller’s spoon bending has since been discredited as a magician’s trick.  What about that watch though. How did it start?  Could my belief, my thoughts have started it?

Although I had forgotten about this event that happened so long ago, my interest was re-ignited about 10 years ago.  I delved deep into the scientific studies done by Dean Radin at Institute of Noetic Sciences and William Tiller at Stanford, Boehm, and many more. Not being a physicist I do have to rely on the summary of their work, but it all points to our thoughts, our intention affecting the world around us.

Pretty cool, eh?

Have you ever had an experience like this?  Let me know!
