I Can Control Fire But I Want To Know Why


When I was younger, my family loved having barbeques. And I mean loved. Considering I'm Mexican and Mexicans are notoriously carnivorous, it seemed normal.

The flames of the barbeque were made through burning coal and I was always fascinated by those flames. I would raise my hands towards the fire only to feel them immediately warm up from the heat underneath. I never thought of it anymore, I just knew they would almost always hit my palm (various blisters from burns, I kid you not).

I decided one day to randomly try to control the fire. I don't know why, I just did. I saw the fire and I started concentrating on what it meant: how it felt, how it would rise, how it would fall, how it would change but still be fire. I stood about six feet away and raised my arm. The fire rose. I lowered it. The fire fell. I never knew what to make of it. I would sometimes practice this at church (my family is devoutly catholic) on the candles and watch them rise.

I decided to show my family members this talent. They didn't understand. They thought it was witchcraft and immediately told me to stop. They said the "devil" had given me something dangerous and that I should never pay attention to it. So, I stopped practicing.

I am currently battling depression and as part of treatment, I decided to reflect on my past. The first image that appeared into my mind was on controlling that fire and how I felt. I felt powerful and strong, unique yet completely alone. I decided to practice controlling fire again and it felt so natural. Yet, how did this happen?

I don't understand. I thought maybe it was due to my zodiac sign, but I'm a Taurus. I thought maybe it was because I was hot-headed, but I'm the most patient person I know. What strikes me more odd is that I am deeply fascinated with mermaids and all water life. I've always wanted to be a mermaid when I was young yet my affinity for fire completely juxtaposes this.


Side note: While my family is Catholic, I do believe in multiple deities and I'm still searching for what is right for me. Any input is greatly appreciated.

I always liked fire, and often put my hand in it, like a wavy motion, in and out, again and again, but I have tried hard controlling it, but I don't believe it will work, can I really do it, can someone help me?

I used to think I could do that when I was 15. Maybe it's just a thing that most kids go threw messing with witchcraft. My advise to you, grow up kid. Find some thing that you really love doing and you can show off. Then you can feel impotent or special for real reasons. This will fix the depression trust me. If you life fire why don't you become a fire man, fire eater, or anything involving it. The murmaid thing is just to much to even help you with sorry. You would be best just not telling anyone that again...

Your welcome

I understand some what. I'm a pyrokinetic to but not as strong as you. I have all ways felt a connection to fire. But I realized my ability's a Little late so my power isn't very strong. I noticed I had this power when I started to control the flame on a candle my mom a shored me it was just the wind from the motion of my hand. But I didn't know about psychokinesis then. A year later I found a site on psychic ability's that's when I found out about my power. When my mom was gone I got a candle and try d to control the flame with out the use of my hands. And it worked. I disided not to tell her. I talk to her about the subject some times but she brands it as witchcraft just like your family. So I practice in secret so she doesn't find out.

P.S. I going to use it to save life's

Well people are born with certain amplified psychic abilities. I myself also have pyrokinetic abilities, however though, the ability weakens whenever I try to use my hands to control any sort of fire. For the absolutely most powerful results with this ability, you need to have a good mental connection with the object you are either igniting, or with the fire you are controlling; thus, no hands! The pyrokinetic ability resides in your MIND, there is no power in lifting your hands. The practice of rising your hands or arms to control fire is simply a beginners step, when you aren't used to making mental connections to objects; you are simply using your hands as a easy way for your mind to focus on what you want to manipulate. With practice, you won't need to use your hands and your ability will be much stronger. However, pyrokinesis is completely natural, and there is no reason to be afraid or worried about these abilities. Bonne chance!

don't follow all that elemental attack bull that waterboy is mentioning, this type of ability is meant to be used for the greater good, and I know quite a bit about this Fireborn just to point out

it is known as Pyrokinesis, don't use it too extensively as you seem to be experiencing exhaustion as it takes a small amount of your body temperature to use it, so use this ability sparingly and only in times of great need, if you want to know more email me at kid_sharp [at]

Oh I am so sorry about your depression but you shouldn't feel sad you have a gift not many people have. I have a gift as well I can work with wind I'm just a junior so I don't really know how to do it all that well but I can. I am not going to tell my parents ever because they will probably think I'm a freak but I am not a freak and neither are you. I mean why would anybody want to be normal? Normal's boring, extraordinary is exciting and you my friend are extraordinary.

Did you ever think you are just a psychic, plain and simple. To say you can control fire does not make any sense. If it was then the fire fighters might need your assistance next time there is a house fire or a bush fire.
To put it simply you are psychic therefore you know what the flames will be doing.
Love & light

if you can control fire it is called pyrokinesis

Pyrokinesis Techniques

To practice Pyrokinesis you need to have a candle and matches so you can light it. Take it to a windless place. Remember that you have to move it with your mind without the use of any physical means. Now to control the flame just imagine that your Ki is absorbing the flame and that your hand is the flame and you control it. With the movement of your hand the flame will move along with it so if you want it bigger imagine the flame's size increasing opposite if you want the flame smaller. When you're able to control the flame, move on to a more difficult exercise like the techniques I mentioned below. Another helpful techniques is to imagine the tip of the lighted candle bursting into flames shooting out heat Ki. It will take time to learn Pyrokinesis so train hard and don't give up if your not getting result's just research more and train harder every day.

Pyrokinesis is the ablity over fire. This is an advanced skill, and can be dangerouse to others around you if you don't have controll over it. The key to Pyrokinesis is focusing on what you want the flame or fire to do, and willing it to happen. Here I have listed a few ways to develope and increase you pyrokinesis skills.
The best way to develope and train your Pyrokinesis skills is a technique called the dancing flame. Get in a relaxed position, and grab a match. Light the match on fire and focus on the flame. Create a "tunnel" between you and the flame. Now visualize the flame going out. You must be focusing on only the flame. With enough will power, and hard concentration, the flame will go out. Putting a flame or fire out is the easiest part of Pyrokinesis. Making the flame or fire relight is the hard part. Once you can make the flame burn out, Focus on the flame relighting. After a few weeks of doing this, you will notice that once the flame is out, you will be able to see the ember start to turn red again as though it wanted to relight. Once you practice enough, it will relight. This is the easiest way to develope and train Pyrokinesis. This techique DOES WORK! I started out a year ago by practicing the dancing flame, and now I can make a decent sized fire dim down and go out just by a wave of the hand. Then I can relight small parts of it.

Fire Blast:
Place you hands at your side as if to perform an advanced ki blast. Charge up the ki into your palms, but also visualize being engulfed in a fire surrounding you. Let the flames come up and collect in between your palms. Merge the ki IN your hands, with the "fire" in BETWEEN your hands. When finished, you should have a completed fire ball in between your hands. Unless advanced enough, you won't actually see a flame, you'll just feel heat. Shoot your hands foward at the target. Visualize the fire coming off of your hands like a blow torch. Be carefull though. If your body isn't conditioned for fire, the attack will also burn you.

Flame Hadoken
I didn't come up with this attack but you need to know how to do this before you do my Super Hadoken Finisher. If you played StreetFighter then you should know what to do for those who haven't I will display it on my Intermediate website. If you know how to do a Hadoken this is how to make a Flame Hadoken. Form a Hadoken in the cup you made with your hand. (Like how Goku makes a kamehameha wave) Now visualize fire rushing up from your chakra point into your palm. The best way to picture this is to picture fire in a Fire place burning you and its spreading through out your whole body. Now have the fire join your hadoken. You know when you do this when your hand becomes real hot.

Super Flame Hadoken Finisher
This attack is finisher only. Visualize your Flame Hadoken growing bigger and bigger. Now add as much ki into the ball as you want then condense the ball to a small form (just make the ball small its more efficient that way). Now draw all of your ki that's in your whole body into the cups of your hand. Visualize your hadoken getting stronger and picture light shining through the cracks of your fingers. When your ready fire at will. This is a good finisher and I use it on my sparring partner everytime we have a intense battle.

Elemental Ki Flame Power-Up

Everybody heard of ki flame well this is my upgraded version of it. Now do the ki flame and now when you explode your ki flame around your body visualize your ki change from red to white then from white to blue then from blue to brown then from brown to reb/blue then to red again.
Red = Fire
White = Electric
Blue = Ice
Brown = Earth
Red/Blue = Vorpal (This is a true Element it was discovered in Japan)
Now your attacks will have elemental damage in them and plus you will have the same affects of the ki flame.

Flame aura

Flame aura is a technique where you use the heat Ki from Pyrokinesis to make a outer aura good for heating up your body in cold weather much like the inner heat tantra. To do this technique imagine heat Ki building up like a wave of energy and traveling throughout the body inside and out and that your body as if your body is igniting in flames. This technique will last long until your Ki deplete's it is easy to use and can be learned in around 30 minutes.

I'm sorry that you are suffering with depression at this time. Fire is a nature element or elemental. There are many people from all walks of life that play and interact with fire. You can see the fire spirit dancing in the fire if you look into it for a few moments from a distance of course.
When you were younger you were without judgements of the fire. The only reason you have stopped is because you were told to do so and given their view and information about fire.
When you made the fire go up and down you were interacting with the fire and it was interacting with you too. You can ask the fire to go high or low but try not to control it. As with all nature spirits they do not like to be controlled. Basically, only summon them but do not demand things. Always respect the nature spirits and they will respect you in return. I've recently heard of someone who can make a small fire in the palm of their hand by summoning the fire spirit.
Everyone has a connection to nature in some way. It just matters how each person interacts with nature.
I'm glad that you are reconnecting with yourself. Always be true to yourself. Follow your dreams. We all have one life to live. No do-overs.
Hope I helped you in some way. Take care.
