Fix Machinery without Your Hands

You don’t have to be capable of taking the machine apart and putting it back together again. In fact, it is better if you don’t know the details of how it is supposed to work — only that it works when you flip the switch, turn the key, etc.

Let’s say that your car will not start. Stand or sit perfectly still. Close your eyes and imagine that all the parts of the engine that are supposed to work are in perfect condition. Put yourself in “tune” with the engine. Visualize it running and hear the sound that it will make. Then, forget about it.

The car will usually start — maybe not immediately, but you will have a high rate of success. This works with computers, printers, chain saws, lawn mowers, microwaves, etc.
