siddhi

Paranormal powers developed via meditation or yoga, particularly concentration meditation (samadhi/ the samatha jhanas). Examples are: knowing the future, being able to manifest whatever one desires, ability to levitate, and so forth.

Lists of such powers from various spiritual systems can be found at the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siddhi

Powers are particularly prone to spontaneously show themselves during the Arising & Passing Away.
