Psychokinesis With Dr. Joseph Gallenberger


Dr. Joseph Gallenberger is a clinical psychologist with thirty years experience as a therapist. In 1992 he began to investigate psychokinesis (PK), the ability to influence matter through non-physical means, and since then has taught over 3000 people in workshops to bend metal spoons, sprout seeds in their hands, influence the roll of the dice, and create healing and abundance. See the end of the article for a more extensive bio and links to his website.

MTPS:

You’re a clinical psychologist – how did you ever get involved in psychokinesis?

Dr. Gallenberger:

It started when I was taking a course at the Monroe Institute (an educational facility that focuses on the personal exploration of human consciousness) and found that when I put my hand on someone’s head, that person’s headache went away. And then in another Monroe course – while in a similar energy to that I had experienced in sending healing energy – it seemed that the dice were falling in just the pattern I wanted. Both of those things intrigued me.

I wanted to do controlled experiments on this type of energy projection that both energy healing and PK seemed to have in common. Princeton University’s PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalous Research) laboratory had well-controlled PK experimental designs, and results could be scientifically analyzed.   The scientists at the PEAR lab had already conducted one study with over 12.5 million trials, with a high degree of statistical evidence. In the past, two Nobel Prize winners reviewed the work being conducted at the PEAR laboratory. Dr. Brian Josephson (’73 Nobel Prize recipient, a theoretical physicist now retired from Cambridge) and Dr. George Wald (’67 Nobel Prize recipient, a neurobiologist at Harvard, now deceased) both considered the PEAR lab’s experimental design to be valid and its results to be valid. My experience participating in trials at the PEAR laboratory gave me assurance that PK was real and could be scientifically studied.

MTPS:

Repeatable and consistent results are what scientists like to see. However, consistency hasn’t commonly been a hallmark of PK in the past. For example, the well-known spoon-bender Uri Geller famously and publicly flopped on the Johnny Carson show. In your book, Inner Vegas: Creating Miracles, Abundance, and Health, you wrote about your experiences– you state that PK does not respond well to pressure, stress, noise or distraction, etc., which may help explain why there have been well publicized failures. With that in mind, why Vegas rather than some quiet, isolated area where you and your students might have less distraction?

Dr. Gallenberger:

In terms of learning PK, there are three reasons why I think Las Vegas is very special. First, there are few places in the world where games of chance are as much studied and as highly regulated as the Las Vegas casinos. The statistical results – what should happen by chance – are very well known and accepted by modern science. It’s an ideal place to try to influence results because it will be clear if you are successful at deviating from chance. Second, PK is often strongest when we are highly motivated to achieve a result. Our groups put a few dollars on the table in order to put “skin” in the game, but not so much money that it puts people in a place of fear or ego. Finally, casino games give clear and immediate feedback on whether what you’re doing is successful and I’ve found that very rapid feedback is critical to training someone in PK.

I agree with you that PK can be hampered by stress. I believe PK to be a very natural talent that humans have, just like being able to go to sleep. When you go to bed, you have the intention to sleep, then you forget about it and think about something else for a while, and then you just naturally fall asleep. If you were offered twenty million dollars to go on TV and fall asleep in front of an audience and cameras, you probably couldn’t do it. There would be too much stress.

It might seem counterintuitive, but the Las Vegas casino environment for our groups isn’t as stressful as you might think, given that we prepare properly. We gather together to meditate and do other exercises prior to going out to the floor, and usually have tables reserved just for ourselves. We often achieve a peak flow state much like athletes do during an important game. We don’t even notice the noise. In contrast, the MC² course that also teaches PK that we hold at the Monroe Institute’s rural Virginia campus takes place in as meditative a setting as you can imagine. However, even in that setting there are ego challenges, such as performance anxiety. I’ve found that a person’s internal performance anxiety is much more formidable a distraction than the noise and commotion found in a casino. Fortunately we have very effective methods for reducing these anxieties and moving people into a heart-open state where they are both grounded and also connected to spirit, and therefore able to do PK.

MTPS:

After you experienced success with your Inner Vegas Adventure workshops, you went on to develop the 6-day MC² (Manifestation and Creation Squared) program for the Monroe Institute. And when you did so, you brought other exercises into the mix. But the activities seem very different. What do rolling dice in patterns and influencing slot machines have in common with activities such as sprouting seeds and healing?

Dr. Gallenberger:

There’s a certain common set of energies going on – a constellation of energies where the individual can effect energetic changes that produce results in the physical world.  The PK portion of that energy constellation is a natural for learning about the entire constellation. PK gives prompt feedback and scientifically analyzable results. In contrast, the feedback associated with manifesting and healing is often not prompt and what is the ideal result may not even be clear. For example, there may be important – even sacred – reasons why a person needs to experience an illness, and remains ill in spite of energy being sent to them for healing.

MTPS:

So you’re teaching people to influence dice, sprout seeds in their hands, and bend spoons. That sounds cool, but what’s the point?

Dr. Gallenberger:

The point of all PK tasks is for individuals to tangibly see that their thoughts can influence physical reality, and that the impossible is possible. It’s proof of miracle. The students learn that they can effectively apply spiritual concepts to physical problems both in their daily lives and in society.

hands around plantThat last part is important because we humans today are finding ourselves at a tipping point in so many things in society. One example would be the environment. Several months after one student completed the program he reported back that he was able use what he had learned in the course to increase the nitrogen level in the fields of his family’s farm. Imagine a world in which we no longer needed to use chemicals to fertilize our crops!

MTPS:

In your book, you describe the people who took your course as “ordinary people who allowed themselves to become extraordinary.” But really, what type of person wants to learn PK?

Dr. Gallenberger:

First of all, there are two basic types of people who DON’T want to learn PK: 1) those who believe that PK could be real, but that people shouldn’t do it because it’s evil; and 2) those who believe PK is impossible and therefore not worth studying.

The people who attend either the Inner Vegas Adventure course or the MC² program have a strong sense of curiosity, are open-minded, want to learn more about the potential of human consciousness, and are psychologically healthy. Also, they are interested in spiritual and new-age subjects and want verification of what is possible.

MTPS:

Do you see any differences between those who sign up for the Monroe program and those who sign up for the course in Las Vegas?

Dr. Gallenberger:

Frankly, they are much more similar than different. Some people are uncomfortable with the gaming focus of the Inner Vegas Adventure course choose to attend the MC-Squared program held at the Monroe Institute. Those who prefer the Inner Vegas Adventure course are often people who want to learn to trust their instincts, remain calm in the midst of stressful situations, face risk evenly, and maximize good outcomes when there is risk.

MTPS:

In the Inner Vegas Adventure course specifically, is it common for people to sign up who are only interested in learning how to get rich by gambling?

Dr. Gallenberger:

It’s not much of a problem; people who are pre-occupied with money generally aren’t attracted to the open-hearted and methodical way we run this course. We interview everyone by phone if we don’t already know them. If the individual appears to be interested only in making money and not in PK, healing, and manifesting, we decline to have them participate.

MTPS:

Do many of your MC-Squared students fail to bend a spoon? Spoon bending 004

Dr. Gallenberger:

When we started over 15 years ago, only 50% of the students bent a spoon; now the figure is over 90%. I wouldn’t expect it to be 100% – beliefs can get in the way. For example, during the spoon-bending exercise we encourage the students to dance, jump around, and get excited. Some students, however, were raised with the belief that it is not polite to yell or project energy that way – and they fail to bend a spoon. Other students cannot overcome their belief that bending heavy metal is impossible.

MTPS:

And many of your students continue to experience things after finishing your class and returning to their daily lives – things that go beyond throwing dice or bending spoons. What kind of developments have been reported back to you?

Dr. Gallenberger:

One student reported that he lit a light bulb from across the room – it wasn’t plugged into an electrical socket – and it stayed lit for nearly half an hour. Another woman put her hands on the stem of an orchid. The bloom on that orchid stayed fresh for more than six weeks, while the blooms of the surrounding orchids perished normally.

We also hear a lot about manifesting things that the individual has wanted – but not received – for a long time. Examples include selling a house, getting a new job, finding a new love relationship, and healing a sore knee after a decade of pain, etc.

MTPS:

In your opinion, what do you think would be the major benefits to the average person if he or she should learn PK?

Dr. Gallenberger:

PK is a surprisingly practical skill. People who learn PK learn about their own energy and power. And they learn how to use this ability to influence their reality in a more positive direction, do healing, and manifest their dreams more readily. When you continue to practice you get better at it. Some students use PK as a type of barometer that measures their good energy and internal power – if they wake up and can’t bend a spoon, they make sure to meditate before trying to manifest anything.

MTPS:

Could you talk a little bit about your new book that is scheduled for release in October, 2014?

Dr. Gallenberger:

I’d be happy to. A year ago I released Liquid Luck – a meditation exercise on CD and as download that guides the listener to create a vial of Liquid Luck that they can drink anytime they want to have a lucky day. Within a day of the its release, people started sending me reports of their experiences. My new book, Liquid Luck: The Good Fortune Handbook, shares these stories of manifestation, explores the principles that created the successes and includes exercises to help the reader achieve similar success.

MTPS:

Just a couple of months ago you released another meditation called Abundance Waterfall: a Meditation for Enhanced Abundance in all Area of Life.  I’m unsure how to use these meditations. I want every day to be lucky and abundant – do I need to listen to them both every day?

Dr. Gallenberger:

The key is to achieve a strong visualization during the meditation. If you do that, you can call up the energy when you need it later. And whenever you feel like you want a refresher, you can listen to the meditation again

MTPS:

If you could leave the reader with one final thought, what would that be?

DrJoe2Dr. Gallenberger:

It would be wonderful if we all learned that we were miracle workers and that we live in a miracle space. When I talk about being in a miracle space, imagine that there is a symphony that has 50 trillion members, and which adds billions of new members every day. Now imagine that this symphony plays a complicated melody and can do so without stopping for hundred years. You would say that’s a miracle. Well, if you substituted the word “cell” for “member” you would have the human body playing the song of life. This is an example of the type of miracles that surround us daily.

The one thing that can get in the way of our being miracle workers, is fear. This is so because fear clouds over love, which is our most powerful energy to work with when creating a miraculously better world for ourselves and our communities. Therefore one of my sayings is placed on a wooden sign that hangs over my desk where I can see it often: Fear is expensive. Love is priceless. Choose wisely!

  1. Great Interview. Keep up the good work. Love to you both.
    ~ Tom Pollock, 6039 Bullard Dr., Oakland CA 94611

  2. Long time fan of Dr. Joe and his programs since Sync Creation was my first experience with hemisync programs ten yrs ago, and MC2 shortly thereafter! I recently completed a nonstop 5 month solo hike of the entire Appalachian Trail, 2186 miles from northern Maine to Georgia, and there exist something that serious long distance hikers call “the unspoken language of the trail” that parallels the energy/energies of manifestation (PK) Dr. Joe teaches. Another term is the manifestation of ‘trail magic’ from ‘trail angels’ which occurs in many forms, too many to list here. In order for one to be successful in completing this challenging trail, which is equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest 18 times, with an extrapolated 515,000+ feet of ascent/descent, a hiker must hike from the heart, not the head (mind), thus allowing the trail to take care of him/her. Otherwise it can be a brutal journey in which only 1-10% succeed. My personal examples of using PK energy was literally creating the rendezvousing with “good weather bubbles” : hiking thru downpours and nonstop frontal storms but not getting wet (literally walking between raindrops) or blown off exposed ridges. Other examples involve the timing of rendezvousing with people, day hikers parked at trail heads and getting a free hitch into a town for resupply, thus saving time and miles to hike on foot, or for fun, visualizing goodies of any sort (food is sparse for a thru hiker!) and soon after coming upon a cooler or two placed along the trail or in streams we cross, loaded with treats, drinks, beer(!!!) – all things a thru-hiker never carries because of the added weight. Or meeting a day hiker who overpacked his food and was grateful to ‘unload’ wonderful foods onto an alway hungry thru-hiker!
    Anyway, the list is endless, but this type of amazing journey definitely puts a hiker to the test in many ways, but for one who believes in their own god-source given power (PK), it makes for a truly magical, ineffable journey!
    Much love y light to you Doc Joe! And Thank You!!!
