Psychokinesis


'Psychokinesis'

What about those who can perform the moving or bending of objects by mind power, a type of psychokinetic power?... Perhaps it can be used to hide the car keys or to bend a spoon…there have been instances where this has taken place…granted, some have been fraudulent while others seemed pure…whether you believe that or not is up to you…but it is undoubtable that the mind is an extremely powerful thing…so much more than we can comprehend…can it move mountains?...maybe…we never tap into the deepest realms of the mind…who knows what potential there could be if we could?...some have seemed to control others by concentrating their powers to make others think as the sender wants them to think…this can be very dangerous...we think we know ourselves but given certain circumstances, our mind or perhaps psychokinetic powers from others can cause us to do things we wouldn’t ordinarily do…maybe even go beyond legalities…certainly, our own minds can bend the rules to fit around what we what to accomplish…what would our fathers think?

The Hope Diamond Curse


'The Hope Diamond Curse'

The Hope Diamond, described as ‘the most famous diamond in the world’ has ownership records dating back almost four centuries…its much-admired rare blue color is attributed to trace amounts of boron atoms...weighing 45.52 carats, it was last reported to be insured for $250 million…the Hope Diamond has long been rumored to carry with it a curse...at times…the diamond has been subject to theft and there are a few years where the diamond was actually unaccounted for…a New York Times article from 1911 gave a list of supposed cases of ill-fortune…here are some of the unfortunate…Jacques Colet bought the Hope Diamond and later committed suicide…a Russian Prince, Prince Ivan Kanitovski bought it but later was killed by revolutionists…it was once loaned to a woman who later was murdered by her lover…Sultan Hamid gave it to a person to "polish" but later but the man had the misfortune to be imprisoned and tortured…a guardian who was put in charge of protecting the stone was hanged by a mob…later a Turkish attendant was hanged for simply having it in his possession…another unfortunate owner who brought the stone from India to Paris was said to have been "torn to pieces by wild dogs in Constantinople."…there have been others who have committed suicide or have died broken…the popular view among skeptics is that these accounts are speculative since there are supposedly few, if any, hard facts to back them up...personally, I saw the Hope Diamond at a Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C…it was quite impressive, but given its record of ownership misfortune, I’m not sure I would have taken it if it was offered to me…of course, given its value, I may have taken a chance.

Curses


'Cursed'

A curse is any specified wish that some form of misfortune will befall or attach itself to someone or something…it could be one or more persons, a place, or an object…in particular, a "curse" may refer to such a wish or pronouncement that is made effective by a spiritual force or supernatural power…these can include such things as a spirit, a natural force of some kind, the will of a god or gods…or supernatural powers…those that are created by magic or perhaps witchcraft…there are many different types of curses…political curses that have struck those in the presidency…or they are curses on specific objects such as The Hope Diamond…thanks to Hollywood, there is a popular belief that have curses most popularly being associated with the violation of ancient tombs…especially in Egypt, where ‘The Curse of The Pharaohs has gained great notoriety…those who have violated the sacredness of mummified corpses or the treasures of the tombs themselves… I have written previously about the "Curse of the Pharaohs" and it has haunted many of the archeologists who took part in the excavation of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun…this curse and others like it, came forth from the grave on anyone who paid no heed to the tenants as directed by ancient Egyptian priests…and went on to defile the sacred tombs…some have said it was merely coincidence or random misfortune that these people were struck down, but others know
