HAZEL COURTENEY had a mind-bending experience when she met Uri Geller for lunch
I have just spent a memorable afternoon with Uri Geller. Thanks to his regimen of exercise, an organic, wholefood vegetarian diet and optimum amounts of vitamin and mineral supplements, at 52 he looks more like a 40 year old. Geller also practises shoulder stands, ensuring a plentiful supply of vitamin-enriched blood to nourish his scalp. I shall try this myself to improve my own thinning locks.
Some people believe that Geller has ample time to devote to himself - which is why he looks and feels so good - but, in fact, the opposite is true. When I last popped in, he spent the entire hour on his exercise bike, which has a small computer so that he can work while he exercises. He makes the most of every minute.
Geller remains world-famous for his ability to bend metal objects. (A gold bangle of mine developed a marked indent when he concentrated on it.) But few people realise that he uses this same energy for healing. Geller says: "The public like to see demonstrations of my psychic abilities, but these days I prefer to use my energies for more productive purposes," he says.
Stories of healing triggered by Geller are numerous. A woman in Newcastle, who had been told that she could not have children, became pregnant, she claims, after staring at Geller's photograph nightly for several weeks. Elisabeth Sorenson, 79, from Denmark, was able to walk from her wheelchair, she says, after watching him on television. Her doctors had told her that her arthritis was so severe she would never walk again.
How are such things possible? "Through the power of the human mind, which is capable of far more than most people realise," says Geller. "Somehow the energy that pulses through me, plus a person's wholehearted acceptance of it and their belief that it will help them, enables me to act as a catalyst and, in many cases, trigger the healing abilities that lie within us all." To prove his point, Geller has written Mind Medicine (Element £20), a book that explains how to use our minds and bodies to their full potential. An informative read for anyone serious about health.
