still never heard of the Christian martyrs who survived a face to face with an hungry lion by staring at it ? do you think it is a myth ?
Seriously my cousin's father was known in my family to hold special powers and he scared the hell out of his wife because of that.
One day he said to his family look at this woman walking on the street with the heavy bag, I will order her to stop and she will stop (he was in his house and the women outside and by only focusing his thoughts on her she suddenly stopped and got paralized for a while - imagine the faces of his family - then he said now she will walk again and she did !
What do you make of that ? if you have this power you can paralize a lion right ?
