Telekinesis is the ability to move something with one's mind, which is generally channeled through the hands. It is one of the most commonly used supernatural powers in the series. It has been employed by humans through magic like witchcraft and sorcery or from being a psychic or medium. It is one of the notable and commonly employed abilities used by demons. The pagan gods normally have this power as well. Angels also have used this power.
