When we tell you that aerokinesis is that art of moving, bending or controlling air, your first thought might be that this is more like something straight out of a superhero movie than something that is possible in real life. But the reality is, that aerokinesis is, in fact, an art form that can be learned, developed and ultimately mastered.
What Is Aerokinesis, Anyway?
When we talk about aerokinesis, we are referring to the power or ability to move air and manipulate it at will. You may have heard of the term psychokinesis, and aerokinesis is simply an offshoot of this practice.
To put it simply, those who are able to perform aerokinesis are able to control the molecules of air that surround them using nothing more than the power of the mind. Pretty amazing, right!
Air, in terms of the practice, relates to a number of gases such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen and whilst many may view the art of aerokinesis as some form of magical power, it is important to remember that it does not fall under such a mythical umbrella.
In truth, aerokinesis is more commonly believed to be a phenomenon relating to physics. Therefore, when we look at it this way, much of the legend and myth of the art is taken away, making it feel much more achievable.
That being said, anyone who performs the technique must be fully invested in doing so and give their undivided attention to achieve success.
How Does Aerokinesis Work?
As we have already discovered, the practice of aerokinesis is more than some sort of superpower, and is, in fact, more of a scientific technique. With this in mind, one should remember that certain factors should be regarded when attempting to master this technique.
These are density, temperate and pressure – all of which have an influence on the air itself and, as a result, how you perform aerokinesis.
- The temperature of the air molecules will determine the direction in which the air flows. In addition to this, it can also influence the speed at which the air travels, for example, if the air is warmer, there is a higher level of energy which can move the air more quickly, thus creating higher pressure.
- The air pressure can fluctuate between low pressure and high pressure, at certain points, the pressure can equalise.
- If air is particularly dense, this will increase the air pressure.
Of course, as with any practice, different people can master aerokinesis is different ways – you might imagine this in the way you would imagine doctors.
Cardiologists specialise in the heart, dermatologists in the skin, ophthalmologists in the eyes and so on – where aerokinesis is concerned, each person may ‘specialise’ in a certain area.
For this reason, and as a result of the different factors we have already discussed, some people may find it easy to manipulate static air yet struggle to have any effect on the air that is already moving and vice versa.
Whilst you may wish to be able to manipulate and control air in one way, your unique abilities should always be embraced and your practice should be around further developing these for your benefit rather than attempting to master techniques that are not naturally available to you.
That being said, once you have learned to gain full control over your skills, there is the option to move on to mastering those that do not come naturally, this may set you apart from, and make you more powerful than other ‘Airbenders.’
6 Tips And Techniques For Aerokinesis
Now that we have gained a more in-depth understanding of the practice of aerokinesis, you are likely wondering how to best hone your skills.
One of the most important things to keep in mind is that like any other skill, becoming great takes time, dedication and above all, practice, so don’t be disappointed if you are unable to stir up a mighty zephyr within your first practise session.
1 Go Outdoors
It goes without saying that there is a much greater supply of fresh air just waiting to be controlled when we step outdoors and so to get the most out of your practice, heading outside is the best option. This is especially important for beginners as the air outside will be much easier to manipulate.
When you go outdoors, unless you are a seasoned master of aerokinesis, it will be more beneficial to practise in weather that is not too cold and not too hot. This will avoid the temperate having too much of an effect on the air, making it potentially more difficult to control.
2 Don’t Rush In
You’ve likely heard the term ‘only fools rush in’ and this could not be more fitting than when beginning your aerokinesis practice. For the first few sessions, you should not make any attempts to control the air but rather just be with it – experience it and get a feel for how it flows and moves on its own.
For a few days, go outside and sit quietly, feeling how the air flows around you, how it sounds and what it does. You might compare this to learning a musical instrument – your initial lesson might be looking at how to hold it, watching other people use it and listening to how it should be played.
These beginner techniques not only show you how to do the job properly but will also help to develop patience, which is essential for aerokinesis.
3 Open The Hand Chakras
You may be familiar with the seven chakras that run along the spine of every one of us but did you know that there are smaller chakras placed around the body, including in the hands?
Practising techniques to open these energy centres will translate into a greater ability to control the air and therefore, is extremely beneficial to your sessions.
Opening the hand chakras can be done in several ways including holding the hands in water and visualising the flow of the water washing away blockages and reopening the chakra.
Meditation is something that can be used in so many situations and aerokinesis is no exception. To successfully bend air, you must have a calm mind and be relaxed – what better way to achieve this than to meditate?
Many people go outdoors to do this as, once again, it gives exposure to fresh air. However, you are free to meditate wherever you please, the aim is to calm the mind.
You might also develop a mantra such as ‘I am at one with the wind’ or ‘I am the air.’ This can be repeated not only during a meditative session but throughout each day, keeping the idea of aerokinesis always at the front of the mind.
5 Use Your Mind And Your Hands
Controlling the air and the wind is made up of two factors, your mind and your hands. Whilst some people prefer to simply use the mind, the addition of the hands can be a powerful tool.
You may use the hands to literally direct the wind in any way you wish it to go. Push your palm out in front of you and visualise the air moving in the direction you want it to go. You can also ‘pull’ the wind towards you by using a pulling gesture with the hands.
Most importantly, you should use your mind to gain full control over the air. As you perform your hand gestures, your mind should be focused on exactly what you want the air to do. The power of the mind is not something to be underestimated and using it to its full potential can greatly affect how you manipulate the air.
One of the best ways to start your session is to close the eyes and imagine a ball of energy building inside you, as this ball of energy grows, you can imagine it bursting out into the air around you, giving you control of both the energy you have created and the air it has interacted with.
6 Practise Makes Perfect
We have established already that aerokinesis is an art form that requires dedication and time, and for many people, the start of their practice can feel hopeless and as if nothing is ever going to happen.
But it is so important to believe in yourself and your abilities. The skill takes time to learn and you will forever keep developing it, even once you feel you have a true mastery of it.
If you want to fully gain control of the air, you should be willing to practise every day – multiple times a day if possible and commit to it.
Aerokinesis is a skill that anyone can learn and allows us to control the wind and the air using only our minds and our will. Whilst this might sound like an impossibility, it is believed to be a very real, even scientific thing and with a few useful tips, anyone can get started on honing this skill.
Each of us may possess our own natural abilities where the air is concerned, with some people having a greater control moving air whilst others may be more easily able to work with static air, but whatever your natural skill, this should be embraced.
