Home’s rising from the ground,’ wrote Sir William Crookes. This has occurred in my presence on four occasions in dark ness; but I will mention only those occasions when deductions of reason were confirmed by the sense of sight. On three sep arate occasions have I seen him raised completely from the floor of the room. On each occasion I had full opportunity of watching the occurrence as it was taking place. On one occasion he went to a clear part of the room, and, after standing quietly for a minute, told us he was rising.
One technique for properly arousing them is chanting. In The Tarot, Mouni Sadhu says of the fakirs that some of them ‘have been able to raise themselves into the air for some time, just by the use of a certain sound, while being under special nervous tension. ’2 The ‘certain sounds’ Mouni Sadhu refers to here are called mantras. indd 45 7/26/15 11:45 AM Lenormant speculates that the ancient Egyptians used these hekau to ‘levitate’ the great stone blocks of the pyramids into place. He points out that with the machinery that was available in ancient times (or our times, for that matter) it would have been impossible to transport these blocks from distant quarries to where the Pyramids were located within any reasonable period of time, and it would also have been impossible to seat them as accurately as they were seated.
Levitation may be produced consciously or unconsciously,’ writes Madame Blavatsky in Isis Unveiled. The juggler determines beforehand that he will be levitated, for how long a time, and to what height; he regulates the occult forces accordingly. The fakir produces the same effect by the power of his will, and, except when in the ecstatic state, keeps control over his movements. So does the priest of Siam, when, in the sacred pagoda, he mounts fifty feet up into the air with taper in hand, and flits from idol to idol, lighting up the niches, selfsupported, and stepping as confidently as though he were upon solid ground.
