Nature of Psi & Subtle Energy
- 2008 Autumn Series – Class 1: Introduction to Psionics – by Rainsong
A thorough introduction to the basics of psionics, including defining some common terms and describing the model of how psionics works that is taught by the Psionic Social Club. Includes several different exercises for generating and sensing energy, as well as introducing how to make a “cobweb” psiball.
- Basics Class 11: Non-psionic Healing Modalities – by Nevyn
Gives a history of Usui Reiki and an explanation of the various attunements. Includes information on the energy type itself and a demo for scanning, as well as for two other types of Reiki (Karuna and Kundalini) that the teacher has found useful. Briefly discusses Chios and Therapeutic Touch.
- So, What’s Up With Psi Ki and Chi? – by ILuvEire
A quick explanation of the philosophical “differences” in approach to what is very probably the same thing, in the form of a short article.
- Intermediate Energyworking – by Stolide Demens
Describes methods for accomplishing your intent beyond the usual energy working methods and constructs, including direct intent, omnimancy/tech, and reality manipulation. Also recommends experimenting with combinations of different energy types or creating your own patterns of energy. Briefly mentions portals and various theories about changing how a thing “exists”. Outlines some of the author’s own experiments, as well as his opinions about how to measure one’s ability.
- Constructs for Newbies – by Lesenthe
A very thorough and well written article which focuses primarily on the practical, but also discusses some theories which explain what is encountered in practice. Introduces and discusses constructs, subtle energy, programming, sentient constructs, and thoughtforms. Explains how to begin to sense energy, via visualization and tactile/spatial awareness, so that you can know when you’ve actually succeeded in creating a construct. Includes an excellent description of how visualization works to help learn to manipulate energy. Explains the importance of mental discipline and how to practice via focal meditation, blank-mind states, and visualization. Recommends exercises for learning to control energy. Walks through the method for creating a construct in detail (planning the complete construct blueprint, externalizing the blueprint in energetic form, and then energizing the blueprint), and sources of energy for powering the construct, also touching on the links between programmer and construct, and between construct and energy source. Devotes special attention to the human energy body and briefly introduces planar theory. Contrasts the author’s method of programming with the method commonly taught in the OEC, and explains why shelling is unnecessary. Touches on what kinds of things can be perceived in a construct and how to examine them closely to improve your skill. Overviews several types of constructs such as shields and wards, guardian constructs, and constructs that influence the physical plane.
- Orgotek Conference: Messing With Electronics and Magnetism – by RainTurtle (aka Rainsong)
Inspired by the abilities of one of the psi-Orders in the fictional Aeon Trinity, this class discusses control of electronics, magnetism, and light. Exercises include affecting a needle on a string near a magnet, corrupting a file on a floppy disk (or writing a basic program to the disk via psi), affecting photosensitive film, multimeters, and radiometers, flaring constructs, recharging batteries, and affecting video games and computers via micro-PK. Describes how to protect electronics from damage from accidental geisting. Also covers a bit of the theory about what psi is, including why psi cannot be electromagnetic.
- Introduction To Energy – by Peebrain
Describes the author’s theory of what the “energy” used in psionics is, namely, that everything is energy, it can be manipulated through focused thought and visualization, and it can be perceived through the “6th sense”.
- Psychic Energy Types – by Psion Guild
Lists descriptions of several energy types that have been by the Guild, including: Life, Psi, Faith, Collective Unconscious, Earth, Quantum Pattern, Anti-Pattern, Neutral, and Veil. (Note: it is common for energy types to be called different things by different communities, don’t assume these types are universally recognized.)
- Orion’s Lessons Series – by Orion
Rather than being an introduction to general psionics, this series covers the methods used specifically by the author. Tends to use energy manipulation for all techniques, even those that are mainly mental.

- Elements and Runes in Constructs – by Miri
Explains what runes and elemental energies are, and how to gather elemental energy to make a construct, or etch a rune into a construct. Outlines what each element is particularly useful for, and lists some helpful runes. Includes cautions on using runes and recommends useful references.
- Psi Energy Frequency Graph – by ANKA
Graphs for visualizing the various frequencies or patterns that have been observed in psi.
- On Psychological Interpretations of Subtle Energy – by Stolide Demens
Theorizes on how people’s minds interpret psi input in different ways based on their mental associations, because psi itself is completely abstract.
- Tips and Methods of Psychokinesis and the Psi Wheel – by Syko_Dragon
Describes several methods of PK in detail, including “just do it”, visualization, direct connect, and energy manipulation, along with mind-sets and skills that may aid for each method. Gives further tips including emphasizing the importance of training in “the basics”, using visualization to achieve a goal, the theoretical difference between psi and chi, focal points, multi-tasking, and how to get a psiwheel to spin continuously.
- KMiller’s Catch-up Lecture for Beginners – by KMiller
Discusses theories on the origins and properties of psi energy. Explains how to feel psi energy and move it via biofeedback and visualization, how to make a psiball, and how to make a basic shield.
- Basics Class 1: Introduction – by Amaya
An introduction to what and what is not psionics, the difference between psi and other energies, and the various types of psionic abilities.
- Psionics as Bioplasma – by Elliptic (aka KMiller)
An excerpt from an interview with General Vladimir Vasiliev of Russian Special Operations who comments on the existence of “bioplasma” and its applications in martial arts. Includes research sources on Psi Energy/Bioplasma.
- Research & Psi-Theory Q&A – by PsiPog
Answers to various member-submitted questions about scientific research, what psi is, and how psionic abilities work.
- Biofeedback and Psionics: An Introduction – by PsiPogAuthor (aka KMiller)
Explains how biofeedback is manipulating one’s subconscious actions consciously, and gives examples of how it can be used to heal, hone, and help. Working off the assumption that psi energy is a physical energy produced and controlled by the body, the author describes a couple exercises for moving psi energy starting with biofeedback visualizations.
- Mini Lecture on Parapsychology Research – by Metalforever & ErikjDurwoodII
An IRC class introducing what parapsychology is and how it can benefit those who practice psionics. Includes a summary of the history of parapsychology (focusing on the Rhine Research Center and Nina Kulagina), some methodologies for testing ESP and psychokinesis, and several theories on how psi works (electromagnetic, energy field, observational, pseudosensory, and memory).
- Basics of Psionics – by Neveza
An IRC class discussing opinions on what psi energy is, as well as what awareness is and how to develop it with meditation.
- Psionics: The Dummies Guide – by Arnick2
Describes what psi is, what it can feel like, and how it can affect your energy system. Lists short definitions of various terms. States that it is harder to do things physically than energetically, and recommends sticking to energy. Suggests starting by learning to scan, then programming basic constructs, and practicing combat and sparring.
- Podcast 1 – by NeoPsychic & JediKaren
A recording covering the speakers’ backgrounds and opinions on what psi is, the scientific theories about psi and psionics, why scientific experiments on psi don’t always work, skeptics’ responses to psi, and the difference between psychics and psionics.

- The Effects of Psionic Energy on People, Animals, and of Non Living Things – by JediKaren
Theorizes on the effects that currents of energy have on the health of plants and animals and the balance of nature (using the overpopulation of deer and their tendency to get hit by cars as an example). Notes that pets tend to be psychic with regards to their owners, and that the author’s cat appears to be energy sensitive.
