Entretien avec Uri Geller
• Magicien ou mystique?
[Anvers] – Très en vogue dans les années 1970 à 1980, le parapsychologue israélien Uri Geller a depuis été très critiqué. Les expériences qui ont été réalisées en laboratoire restent néanmoins troublantes et relancent sans cesse le débat sur le les limites de notre force mentale. Découvrez, au cours d’un entretien réalisé par Alan Davidson, l’homme auquel aucune cuillère ne résiste. Question
You are known as the world famous psychic who’s main known example of powers being demonstrated through your spoon bending, and bringing broken watches back to life, could you tell us your earliest manifestations of your powers.
I look at certain events in my very early childhood as manifestations of my powers because of the synchronisation of the universe. The first occasion I feel was when a British soldier shot two bullets into our window, I was just six months old in a pram under the window. At the time were living across the road from a railroad station which was converted into a British post because this was 1947. The British still occupied Israel which was still Palestine. I believe that that was a small part of the master plan to activate my powers. Nothing happened to me although the window came crashing through on my face but a little teddy bear in my pram, which rolled over my face by some mysterious force saved me.
Who has been the person or persons in your professional life that you have admired or has influenced your life?
My career was triggered off by one remark that the Prime Minister Golda Meir made. I met her at a small house party in Israel. Where I demonstrated telepathy with her, she was extremely impressed. The next day she was being interviewed on Israeli radio, the presenter asked her to predict the future of Israel, she with out thinking simply said, don’t ask me ask Uri Geller. As you can imagine I became a household name instantaneously, straight away the phone started ringing the rest is history. The second person to influence me was Captain Edgar Mitchell the astronaut, the sixth man to walk on the moon; I have learnt a lot of things from him. He tested me at SRI we became and still are very good friends. He taught me how to sprout a seed with my mind”. “These are the two people that have been incredibly influential in my life.
Have you any predictions or a philosophy of life you would like to pass on to your worldwide fans.?
I always want to leave everyone with three pieces of advice, which are. Be positive, try always to be optimistic, always believe in yourself. That’s the best advice I could give . I would also like to add its good to be open minded, not be cynical and sceptical, because negativity is not going to get you anywhere. It’s the dreamers that make it in life, people with open-minded uninterrupted visions; they are the ones that have always succeeded.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“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.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“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.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
