Telekinesis (or "Psychokinesis") in Dreams
Dreams of affecting physical objects with the mind in your dreams--with one exception. If you levitate yourself by sheer brainpower, it's in flying dreams--I didn't want to bloat this list.
I've included a few waking examples of apparent TK/PK: clock-stoppings, poltergeist activity, affecting the odds on dice, etc. Those are rarer, more controversial phenomena, so there's a sublist just for them. (Similarly, I've divided telepathy experienced in a dream from telepathic and shared dreams verified by later, waking events, and dreams of the future or past from predictive dreams verified by later events.)
RELATED TOPICS: Natalian dreams (dreams with physical consequences) - telepathic and shared dreams telepathy in a dream - predictive dreams - ESP in general - field effects - magic - - - See also the full INDEX OF SUBJECTS.
