Bilocation, or sometimes multilocation, is a psychic or miraculous ability wherein an individual or object is located (or appears to be located) in two distinct places at the same time.

The concept has been used in a wide range of historical and philosophical systems, ranging from early Greek philosophy to modern religious stories, occultism and magic.

Several Christian saints, monks and Muslim Sufis are said to have exhibited bilocation. Among the earliest is the apparition of Our Lady of the Pillar in the year 40. Isidore the Farmer claimed to be praying or attending Mass in Church while at the same time plowing in the fields.

Other Christian figures said to have experienced bilocation include Alphonsus Liguori, Anthony of Padua, Ursula Micaela Morata, Gerard Majella, Charles of Mount Argus, Pio of Pietrelcina, Severus of Ravenna, Ambrose, María de Ágreda,, Martin de Porres, María de León Bello y Delgado.

In the 17th century, persons accused of witchcraft were reported to appear in dreams and visions of witnesses. The trials at Bury St. Edmunds and Salem included this "spectral evidence" against defendants. Matthew Hopkins described the phenomenon in his book The Discovery of Witches.

Neem Karoli Baba, Sri Yukteswar, Lahiri Mahasaya, and many other prominent hindu gurus were reported to have this ability.

Do you have any experiences of your own to share on this fascinating phenomena?
