Abstract: Psychokinesis, power to influence a random event generator called REG from a distance is investigated in this study of the relaxation technique called Deep Relaxation Technique (DRT) which is known to invoke effulgence and higher power of the mind. In this investigation, the effect of DRT compared with supine rest (SR) on 80 healthy volunteers evoking the capacity to influence the REG has been examined. Each session consisted of 3 trials of pre followed by 10 trials during and 3 trails post. The experiment was repeated on the 1st day and the 15th day. Results showed no significant difference between the pre-values of both sessions. There was also no significant change in the REG values of both SR and DRT on the 15th day compared to the 1st day in the during as also post phase. Similarly, there were no significant changes between the groups on the psycho kinetic power to bring changes. There was no significant difference shown in the number of episodes in which REG was influenced significantly (chi square test) between the two groups.
