Excerpt from Energy Healing andPsychokinesisBy Jack Houck Presented at U.S. Psychotronics AssociationThe 30
Annual USPA ConferenceJuly 17, 2004
History has many of examples of psychokinesis (mind-over-matter, also known as PK), from breaking chains in the Bible to today’s “spoonbending” parties. Uri Geller started thespoonbending phenomenon in the 1970’s and I started the PK Parties (spoonbending parties) in1981. During PK Parties, people often feel “energy” coming from their hands, as do practitioners of various martial art techniques which they call “Chi.” Sometimes during PK Parties people have described spontaneous healing experiences. This paper will review what aPK Party is and the technique that I teach to perform PK.Similarly, history has many of examples of “energy healing” with many different names for the techniques that people use. Some of these techniques will be reviewed, including the onethat I use. There is correlation between the steps for performing the many techniques for doingenergy healing and the steps to perform PK. The best application of learning how to perform PK at PK Parties is for healing oneself and others.
I began researching Remote Viewing (RV) in the mid-1970’s (Puthoff and Targ, 1976
).Even though I did not understand how RV worked, applications were obvious, including beingable to “see” problems in other individuals’ health. I met with Targ and Puthoff in their laboratory at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) International and was impressed by their scientific approach to the research of this human capability. At the end of the meeting, theysuggested I run experiments attempting to replicate their experiments, which is what I did.James McDonnell heard of my interest and asked if I would conduct an experiment for him. Ichose to conduct an RV experiment using latitude and longitude coordinates, in degrees,minutes, and seconds (about 100 ft resolution) of targets all over the earth. Ingo Swan hadsuggested to Targ and Puthoff that using coordinates would be an interesting way to define thelocation of a RV target and they used them for training exercises. In documenting thisexperiment, conducted in 1980, I wrote a chapter titled “Conceptual Model of ParanormalPhenomena”, attempting to give readers a way of thinking about how RV might work. Isubsequently published that chapter in Archaeus as a paper (Houck, 1983
2 and 3
). Figure 1summarizes the conceptualization of the model used for how the brain/mind operates in order to perform extraordinary feats. The key point shown in Figure 1 is that the brain does theinformation processing and collects data from both the body sensors (e.g., eyes, ears, tongue,nose, and skin/nerves) and another set of the same senses from an external source (e.g., sight,sound, taste, smell, and feeling) through an information channel that I call “the mind”. Notshown in Figure 1 but another key point I observed in RV experiments was that often theobserved target was not as it was at the time of the viewing, but was like when there was a “peak emotional event” occurring. This “time-shift” occurs because the viewer’s mind goes to thetarget location and searches for the time of a peak emotional event. That event is what isreported.

3The McDonnell Foundation requested that I brief a number of parapsychology laboratoriesaround the US on the results of the RV experiment and my Conceptual Model. One of the postulates that I would make when discussing my model was that in order to avoid the mindsearching in time, “you need to deliberately create a peak emotional event and maybe you canget other paranormal phenomena, like psychokinesis (PK).” Charles Honerton challenged me totest that idea. I figured that “wild” parties were acceptable in California, so using the idea of awild party to create the peak emotional event to get the partygoers’ minds focused on the currenttime and task of bending metal, we might get real PK. That’s what happened when I had the firstPK Party at my home in January, 1981.In this paper, I will discuss the PK Parties and energy healing.
PK Parties
PK Parties have become a gathering of people interested in experiencing PK. The first PK Party was an experiment and no one knew if it would work. It did generate the environmentwherein 19 of the 21 people in attendance experienced the forks and spoons losing their structurefor 5 to 30 seconds with heat seemingly coming from inside the metal. When the silverware feltwarm, they would apply slight pressure with their hands and the metal would be twisted into bizarre shapes. This was often accompanied by people screaming and jumping up and downwith joy. The instructions for doing PK were provided by Severin Dahlen (metallurgist, whoalso worked at McDonnell Douglas) and have been used at all PK Parties that I have given.These instructions are:
1. Make a mental connection to what you want to affect.2. Command what you want it to do by shouting “Bend! Bend! Bend!” for metal.3. Let go!
I was so impressed by what I observed at the first PK Party, I decided to hold another one thenext month and this time included different types of metals as experiments. Severin and I wouldconstruct new experiments and implement them at each PK Party. We did a lot of testing andmetallurgical analyses that first year. We also added new features, always keeping theenvironment fun, exciting, and even chaotic at times.It became very apparent that the first two instructions were easy for people who grew up inthe Western culture. However, even though many people talk about the third step, “Letting Go”,very few really know how to do it. I observed that often when people were distracted fromworking on their own fork or spoon and looked at someone who was shouting that theirs was bending, that was when their silverware would begin to get soft and start to bend. That waswhen they Let Go!
The only concentration necessary for doing PK is the first step.
My observations are based on a great deal of data, as well as feedback from individualsfilling out questionnaires at the end of PK Parties. The data have now come from 370 PK Partieswith over 17,000 people attending. Also many people have replicated the PK Party format intheir own PK Parties and generally report the same observations.
Everyone seems to be able to do PK. Children are the best at PK, however, I usually requestthe children be five and older. Small children usually do not understand what is going on andsometimes cry with all the noise when people are shouting. Children ages 6 through 13 seem tolet go easily and are always looking around during the bending. They have not learned that theyshould not be able to do PK. Senior citizens are the next best group. Generally, they have self confidence and let go fairly easily. This seems to be true for all genders, ethnicities, races of  people. All it takes is a brain and mind, and the ability to follow instructions.
