Ever Tried Spoon or Fork Bending?

I have always been a strong believer in manifestation and very early I could “sense” or “feel” how something was going to turn out.

So naturally, manifestation has always been a part of my life. But since manifestation and affirmations can be a challenge to prove to someone that it works (and prove to my left side of the brain) I wanted to try spoon and fork bending.

I was thinking that if I could physically prove that spoon and fork bending worked, it would give me (and maybe the one I was trying to prove that it worked to) a boost to take my manifestation to another level.


When I was a teenager, I went to a Midsummer party with my family. At one point in the evening, three other guests and I were invited to try and lift my dad with just one of our index fingers. My dad was paralyzed for the last 9 years of his life and had a respirator and sat in an electric wheelchair, just like Christopher Reeves. They had their accidents roughly at the same time.

So, four index fingers are going to be able to lift my dad? We all put our fingers under his armpits and his knees and tried… nothing happened. Then we were told to center our energies by putting our hands of top of each other and see in our minds eye how we are lifting my dad, and try again…

This time it WORKED! We lifted my dad like he was light as a feather. 

This is a story I’ve carried with me all my life, and maybe that’s why manifestation has been such a natural thing for me.

Now I wanted to prove myself right once again with this spoon and fork bending session. I wanted it to work! What would I do if it didn’t work?

During the entire session, the left and right sides of my brain argued. The left one said that I couldn’t do this and the right one claimed that I obviously could.

I tried both plastic and metal spoons and forks. The plastic did not work. They broke. 

I first managed to bend the spoon. Instantly I was wondering if I forced the spoon, so I wanted to prove to myself yet again. This time I took a small fork that was thick – AND IT WORKED!

Here are my before and after pictures. It did work! I’d like to say that I’m not surprised, but I am. And I’m so proud that I managed to do this, this is big.

Let me know if you have ever tried or would be interested in trying. Maybe we could do a session together 🙂

Thanks for tuning in! Sending you my love. Have a great day!
