 i asked this question before on teentians vid, and some dude on youtube said that she could manifest her soul self as a type of dark Energy to levitate things???I know this is true for the animated Raven,but i didn't think the comic book raven could use such feats

@Aqua11500: Yes she does...You can see here she lifts Nightwing... 

And she can also use her soulself as a form of telekinesis....Here she carries kids out of a burning hospital...

Regular Raven (not to be confused with Trigon possessed Raven or Dark Raven who have several powers that regular Raven doesn't have) doesn't have telekinesis....or rather, she didn't until modern writers watched the Teen Titans cartoon rather than reading Teen Titans comic books and started writing her as consistantly having telekinesis, knowing magic spells, etc.
 
She can carry others with her soul self, though, as Roddy shows.  It's more like an extendable arm than telekinesis, though and that's a rather poor artistic representation of it.

I like her old empathic/soul self powers,as well her powers depicted in the more modern stories,It would seem that she uses her Soul self as a form of telekinesis or dark energy.

Like the cartoon. 
 
I admit, her soul self looks cooler post resurrection but it seems to have changed her soul self from a solid object to energy.

Thing is Raven just has a very large range of abilities that come and go depending on writers, but only the teleportation, healing and the soulself (since her ressurection, its not really been shown as a decent offensive weapon, only being the center piece when someone else gets to maul it, like the Persuader and Supergirl.) is consistendly being shown, the rest is pretty much left in the dark, like we dont know how good at magic she is, how powerful the telekinesis is and so forth. And most recently she developed the power of being unconcious through most of the issues :S
