I've recently started to astral project to purposely touch objects on our plane. So far i've noticed being very confused about not being able to move them. I've always been more interested in people and auras. I can touch their shoulder or even make them sense me. Has anyone ever been able to move an object?
From my personal hand experience to you, i have traveled to the astral plane and for over 10-20 times i have attempted to move objects using my mind but failed each time, and each time i went back and tried to see if i was doing something wrong but as time went on i realized that one can touch things but cannot move item's on another plane.
So as lark said if somebody tells you they have its been proven that each person failed to move things.
It is actually to move them with your mind and some spirits can do it. Some people have been proven to do it and yes, thry are lies I agree but that does not mean no one is able of doing it. People can hide themselves if they want to...
