What's that you're reading?
I'm learning how to get in touch with my Psychic powers, we all have the ability you know.
Uh uh. Will it take long?
It won't happen over night, I have to practice reaching my basic psychic level before I can go any further.
Right you are. How does that work then?
There are exercises to do, mental workouts, things like that.
Are you having a laugh?
No! It's very serious, now stop putting me off, I'm trying to count balloons.
You're not going to give me any peace are you! Yes, balloons. One of the ways to unlock your higher mind is to alter your state of consciousness by concentrating or visualizing colours and objects.
Oh. So what do you do with these balloons then?
I'm holding them in my hand, there's seven of them and they're all the colours of the rainbow, red, yellow, orange, green, blue, indigo and violet. First I take a red balloon, admire it for a moment and then let it go. I watch it as it floats higher and higher until eventually it disappears into the wispy clouds.
You're serious aren't you? Then what?
I'm not putting up with any of your negative vibes today thank you. Besides, I've protected myself with my Psychic Shield so think on.
Anyway, once the red balloon had disappeared out of sight, I take the yellow balloon and do the same thing.
Does it work? Do you reach your higher mind or whatever you call it? Do great and wonderful things happen?
That'll be a NO then.
Now then, don't be cynical. I'm hesitating because so far, I haven't been able to finish the exercise.
Why not? It sounds simple enough. Lie down, relax and count balloons instead of sheep.
There-in lies the problem.
I see. How far did you get exactly?
Can't remember much beyond yellow.
