Telekinesis is an Adept-level Alteration Spell. Telekinesis allows objects to be manipulated and maneuvered without touching them. Grabbed objects may be pulled closer, thrust away, or added to the inventory. Multiple objects may be grabbed if dual-casting; however, these objects must be close together.
- Using telekinesis to throw objects at characters causes a small amount of damage, turning them hostile.
- Throwing objects at some characters will only cause them to threaten violence, but they never attack, for example a thief can hide from view and use Telekinesis to pull in an owned item, such as a merchant's goods, then steal it.
- Telekinesis is also good for countering the missing note glitch in Shalidor's Maze. See article page for details.

- Telekinesis increases the Alteration skill very quickly, and is among the fastest possible ways to level that skill normally.
- Telekinisis can be used to level alteration skill from 15 to 100 in minutes. Simply have -100% Alteration Cost (Secret of Arcana is a great alternative because it negates the cost of any spell), go outdoors, drop an item (preferably an unwanted item), hold both triggers so that you are not dual casting but still using both hands to hold the object. Then initiate fast travel while still holding the triggers. (The more distance travelled the higher it increases.)
- If the alteration skill is made legendary and this process repeated, it can be utilised to level a character numerous times very rapidly.
- The Archery perk Eagle Eye influences the range from which items can be detected and manipulated with Telekinesis.
- Dual casting greatly increases the range objects can be thrown.
- Telekinesis cannot take items that are on weapon racks or plaques.
- After picking the Adept Alteration perk the spell may not do anything with the objects, only draining magicka.
