Psi’s the limit for children

 Mirror readers have been winning beautiful crystals from my private collection, and some of you have emailed to ask what is so special about these fascinating stones.


It’s not as unlikely as it sounds – the CIA launched a psychic spy programme in the early Seventies, to fight Russian Mindpower tactics. I was a key member of the first teams and I’ll tell you more about that next week.One of the first things were learned was that anyone could hone their psi-power, but children picked it up fastest. This was made clear by the number of schoolkids who mangled their mums’ cutlery after watching my shows. While the adults were dubiously fingering their spoons, the youngsters were confidently tying knots in metal.Scientists called them ‘mini-Gellers’ or, in Italy, Gellerini. A British boy referred to as Andrew G – his parents sensibly wanted to keep his identity secret from the press – invented what he called ‘the paperclip scrunch’: he twisted four or five clips into intricate patterns.At first his ‘scrunches’ resembled people and pets – soon he was combining dozens of clips to create psychic sculptures of ships’ anchors and knights on horseback and crucifixes. Professor John Hasted of Birkbeck College at the University of London proved Andrew could scrunch clips even when they were enclosed in glass globes.I believe children are all natural psychics because they don’t know the meaning of ‘impossible’. Kids who watch Hollywood movies laden with special effects find it easier to imagine that the actors really can fly and leap tall buildings, than grasp that it’s all done with computers. No wonder they happily accept that the mind can bend metal.I always taught my own children that nothing was impossible. If you have complete faith in yourself, you can do anything, no matter how many scientific laws you have to sweep aside.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
