If you have noticed NordStar is a novice, I think it's just before "Knowledgable" reputation, the highest of all. She has also earned a council position on her coven and an Editor position on the website. So essentially she knows a lot. You did not make your question clear enough and you are a bit rude... You should appreciate her help and believes. How did you expect her and everyone to understand? I didn't understand either, only after you wrote it again.
If you mean abilities hearing, seeing or sensing spirits, try meditation. This is, possible. Moving things with the mind may be possible, but in no case you'll move something like a door to close it or move an object to the other side of the room. If it's possible we're talking about small and light-weighted objects, like a piece or paper.
Mind reading is possible, however this is a psychic ability called "intuition" or maybe a form of empathy. You need to have very high these abilties in order to sense or feel what others think about and it doesn't always work in most cases. All the other examples NordStar mentioned are impossible.
I do agree that the human mind has actualy great potential, however in no case we can break the laws of nature. This is, impossible. You can't fly, neither create fire out of the blue and all the others examples that are mentioned. Nature created the human mind; not the human mind created nature.
If you want any kind of paranormal or psychic True, abilities, then meditate.
