Magic Powers part two

I have an active interest in world building like most writers do and thought compiling a list of possible superpowers that an author might tap into might be a useful enterprise. Please feel free to peruse and incorporate which ever superpower interests you. Right now, in my newest work in progress, Time Without End, I am utilizing the power called: Biokinesis: This is power to heal or perform other biological manipulation, like save a life.
*And without further ado here is the list:
Aerokinesis: The ability to mentally control wind and air flow.
Animation: The ability to bring inanimate objects to life.
Astral Projection
: The ability to separate and control one’s astral body outside of the physical body. The out-of-body experience where one can travel outside of their body.
Atmokinesis: The ability to control or manipulate the weather, like creating rain, tornadoes, fog…etc.
Aura Perception: An aura is the spiritual energy field that people and objects give off. Usually, auras convey the feelings or emotions someone gives off in a range of colors. Someone with aura perception can see these colors in someone’s aura.
Biokinesis: The power to heal or perform other biological manipulation.
Chlorokinesis: The power to control or manipulate plants.
Chronokinesis: The power to control time, and even travel through time.
Clairaudience: The ability to hear sounds coming from the spiritual plane.
Clairvoyance: The power to visually perceive events that are taking place elsewhere or sense places that are not in view.
Cryokinesis: The ability to control the element of ice, or cold in general.
Divination: The ability to predict the future.
Electrokinesis: The ability to manipulate electricity and electric fields.
Ferrokinesis: The ability to mentally manipulate metal.
Geokinesis: The power to control the element earth.
Gravitakinesis: The ability to manipulate gravity.
Hydrokinesis: The elemental ability to manipulate water.
Magnetokinesis: The ability to mentally manipulate the magnetic field.
Mediumship/Necromancy: The ability to see and communicate with the dead.
Mesmer: Similar to glamor, a vampire ability to make humans do what you what them to when you want them to.
Omnilingual: Having the ability to speak, or to understand, all languages.
Omnipotence: This one pretty much means unlimited power. Usually only deities have this.
Omniscience: Another power that only deities tend to have, it’s the is the capacity to know everything infinitely.
Photokinesis: The ability to mentally manipulate light.
Power Absorption: The ability to absorb another person’s powers, leaving the person powerless.
Power Bestowal : The ability to bestow powers upon another person or wake up the latent powers of others.
Power Mimicry: Similar to power absorption, except mimicry is the ability to absorb another’s powers while leaving the other person’s powers intact.
Power Negation: The ability to cancel out or diminish the powers of others.
Power Sensing: The ability to sense the powers of another person.
Precognition: The ability to see events before they happen.
Presentience: A form of precognition where one senses events before they happen instead of “seeing” them.
Psychokinetic: The ability to mentally move objects.
Psychometric: The power to read the history of an object by touching it.
Pyrokinesis: The elemental power to manipulate fire, or heat.
Remote Viewing: The ability to mentally view a distant unseen target.
Shape shifting: This is an obvious one; it’s the power to transform your body into another form, like an animal.
Sonokinesis: The ability to mentally manipulate sound waves.
Spiritual Possession: The ability to take complete and total control of another person’s body.
Tactile Telekinesis: The ability to manipulate objects by touching them.
Technopathy: The ability to manipulate electronics.
Telekinesis: Telekinesis is the ability to manipulate and control objects with the mind.

The sequel to my fantasy novel, Watcher, is due out this month, so I thought I would show off a sneak peek of Abomination here today!
              Hope stirred in Willow’s belly like bees in a clover patch. “Oh, Ethan! I know how I’m to get back home!”

             She dug in the pocket of her dress, squealing in delight when her fingers touched the rough little seed pods she stuffed inside before she left the keep at Fern Hollow. There was too much grass where she stood, so she scurried this way and that, looking for a patch of proper soil, finally tumbling down a dip in the bluff to a patch of earth where the grass thinned out as the soil met the white sand of the beach.

            Ethan dropped his small collection of sticks and followed her, perplexed to see the girl who whined so much about the stains on her frock plopping herself down in the dirt, yanking at the grass, scratching at the soil with a crooked little stick so brittle it snapped with each scrape. Once the stick was broken to the nub, she began pulling little seeds from her pocket and scattering them in the freshly tilled soil.

           She looked up at him, blowing a stray curl from her face. “Well, are you going to stand there or are you going to help me?”

           Ethan clenched his jaw. “I think you’ve gone batty. It will be dark soon. The cold is piercing already. Get out of the dirt and help me find some wood for a fire!”

           “Now who’s daft? Don’t you see? I’m the child of prophecy. From the Flower and the Raven a child will spring; to Luminar seeds of change she’ll bring. I’ll plant these seeds, and then I can go home,” Willow explained, patting bits of earth over her seeds.

            “Why would Luminar need to change anything?” Ethan asked, haughtily.

            Willow stood up, rubbing the dirt off her hands and brushing off her dress. “Maybe staring at everything white, gray, and green all day every day has made you all testy.” She looked up at him with sparkling brown eyes and grabbed his elbow. “These are marigold seeds, Ethan! They’re lovely flowers, bright, cheery shades of yellow and orange, some with little bits of red in them!”

             He sighed. “It’s autumn, Willow. We may have a mild climate, but it is still not the season for gardening. Besides, my father and I rarely come to the shore anymore. Who’s going to tend to your little flower garden?”

             Willow scowled and crossed her arms, hope wilting. “God will. Just like he does these white ones.”

             Ethan rolled his eyes and went back up the knoll to retrieve his firewood. “Fine then, Willow. You’ve planted your seeds. It will be a spring of change for Luminar. Now will you lend a hand before we’ve no light at all?”

Be sure to read book one if you haven’t already:
