Telekinesis is the power to move objects or individuals with one's mind. It can be channeled through the sheer concentration or hand gestures, the latter being the most common way to use the power. This is one of the most common and most versatile powers possessed by magical beings, be they good, evil or neutral.
The strength of telekinesis varies depending on the strength and skill of the users. This ability can be channeled either through one's eyes or through one's hands.
As one's power develops, they may be able to use the power intuitively, no longer needing to concentrate in order to move something. This was shown by Macy Vaughn when she threw a tree branch without thinking and by Harry Greenwood when he stopped a globe from hitting him without paying it any attention. However, a lack of control can lead to more than the intended object being moved, as shown when Macy, still trying to regain control over her powers after they were restored, unintentionally summoned a multitude of objects while trying to levitate a pot of sage.
It is also possible to telekinetically apply force around an object, squashing it as a result. This aspect of the power and Macy's knowledge of the human anatomy allows her to lethally stop someone's heart, by pinching a person's left coronary artery and thereby cutting off the blood flow to their heart, and choke another being by constricting their throat and therefore restrict the amount of air they can breathe.
Applications of Telekinesis
When Macy learned how to trigger her new power, she gained the ability to deviate several types of attacks; the first being by an icicle formed through cryokinesis used by Taydeus. The only telekinetics who have shown the skill of deviation are Harry, Charity and Macy.
It stands to reason that beings with this power may use it to deflect objects thrown toward them.
Telekinetics can fire forcebolts that are able to bluntly hurl whatever they come into contact with. Macy uncontrollably fired a telekinetic force bolt at Harry after he startled her while she was bathing, and this hurled him against the wall.
After being told she could by Knansie, Macy learned she could telekinetically stop a person's heart. She later demonstrated this by pinching Cyd's left coronary artery, thereby cutting off the blood flow to her heart. Macy later used her telekinesis to not only stop, but also restart Galvin's heart when he was possessed by an Abiku demon.
The ability to harness telekinesis to constrict a being's breathing causing them to choke. Usually activated by raising the hand in the intended target's direction and squeezing the hand shut, the power can be used to choke a being until they are unable to breathe and possibly cause death. It is presumed anyone possessing telekinesis can channel the power to strangle another being. Macy used this technique defensively to stop Charity from killing her, however, Charity noted that Macy was not strong enough to kill her herself.
- Main article: Advanced Telekinesis
As its name states, this power is an advanced form of telekinesis. Those who possess this power are able to perform feats that are far greater than those who possess only the basic form of telekinesis, such as moving multiple objects all at once. A key characteristic of advance telekinetic abilities is creating powerful blasts of kinetic energy.
