Things that you will need:

20oz bottle cap (or larger)
Curtain hook (you can get these from wal-mart and most other stores that sale curtains)
Needle nose Pliers w/built-in wire cutter
X-acto knife or similar cutting tool



What to do:

Step 1:, use the x-acto knife to pierce a small hole in the center of the bottle cap. Do not push the knife all the way trough the lid, but just enough so that you can see the top poking trough the other side. BE CAREFUL, knives are very sharp!

Step 2:, use the Needle nose Pliers to bend the curtain hook into an L shape. The sharp point of the hook should be the top of the L. Now use the wire cutter portion of the pliers to cut the excess portion of the curtain hook off, and you should be left with simply an L shape.

Step3:, push the point of the L trough the bottom of the cap, all the way until the base of the L meets the back of the bottle cap. You may need to use your fingers to adjust the L so that its vertical, instead of leaning to one side or the other.

Step 4:, place a small dab of glue on the back of the cap, this will help hold the L in place. Then use a 2in x 2in square of paper to make the wheel.

This is the easiest and most effective way to create a psiwheel. I hope you will enjoy building yours Grin

Once you've built, set it up on a shelf, where every little puff of air will make the wheel spin, and it will look pretty.

Now go and try practicing PK by rolling a pencil, instead.  Psi wheels aren't any real use when it comes to PK practice, because they respond to every air current, temperature change, and vibration around.  People like them because it's easy to fool yourself into thinking you're making progress.  If you can move a psi wheel, you can move a pencil.  If you can't move a pencil, you probably never moved the psi wheel either.

Actually, psi wheels are an amazing tool. Place a glace container or plastic container over it. And then try and move it. It works better then any other tool (for beginners), after that move to a pencil or etc..

Or you could get a needle and a handheld eraser, make a hole in the eraser with the needle (not all the way through), turn the needle around, and stick it in the opening, pointy side up.

Even easier, use some clay and a pin to make a stand.

With these, you just need to be careful not to stick yourself.

This is due to the mistaken idea that it's somehow easier to move a REALLY REALLY light object than it is to move a slightly heavier one like a pencil.

There's no evidence in practice to suggest that's true.  The folks I know who can ACTUALLY do PK geist by slamming doors, shoving glasses full of water across the table, rolling up window blinds, knocking things off of shelves...these aren't little teeny pieces of paper on a pin.

Even under glass, a psi wheel reacts to heat changes, as these cause air to move.  For example, people putting their hands near the glass, or breathing on it--that changes the temperature.  Any minute vibration will also set it off.  If you can move a psi wheel, a pencil isn't any harder.  Practice with the pencil, and you'll know for CERTAIN you succeeded, when it moves.  Otherwise, you're just addicted to fooling yourself.  If you can only move a psi-wheel, and NOTHING else, there's a reason for that--you probably aren't moving the psi wheel either.  PK is a difficult ability to learn and control, and scant few people ever manage it.  The psi wheel is nothing more than a way to make people think they're accomplishing something that they actually can't do.

That is far more harmful to development than repeated failure.  You can't reward the subconscious for something it's not doing.  Increasing your confidence falsely is only training your mind to do the wrong thing for the reward of feeling satisfied.

Leave the propellers, the light floaty things, etc, and stick with something substantial enough not to be affected by every tiny change in the environment.  It'll give you a bigger target to aim for anyhow.
