Exercise 177 Self Induced Trance

There are many ways to suspend the analytical side of your brain to produce an altered state of awareness. Brainwashing occurs with an overload of words or arguments or demands for concentration -- thus exhausting the analytical side of your brain. Deprivation of food or sleep or sensory stimuli can suspend your analytical brain. Jogging, marching, dancing, swimming, rhythm, narcotics, cadence, music, chanting, flashing lights and the monotone of a hypnotist's voice can shift your awareness...

Exercise 52 Improving Your Visualization Skills

Your power of imagination or visualization (whether it is visual, auditory, tactile, gustatory, olfactory or kinesthetic) is closely linked to everything that you experience in the physical realm. Thought is the crystalline predecessor to reality. The expression seeing is believing is applicable to visualization. To truly see the thing you want to do, become or accomplish is part of the process of believing it. If you can't really see it happen in your life, how can you believe it can happen...

Exercise 50 Managing Your Anger

To manage anger in your life, you must first recognize what anger IS in your life. Here are some key words associated with anger that can help you identify it when it is present - irritation, resentment, impatience, vindictiveness, restriction, abusiveness, disagreement, loudness and hatred. Anger is one of the basic emotions that is said to stem from the limbic system in the brain. Oftentimes, childhood conditioning teaches us to suppress anger rather than to express it. On the other hand, you...

Exercise 220 Making The Time

Have you ever heard someone complain about something over and over, yet when helpful solutions are offered, no action is taken It's as if they wanted to stay stuck in their situation Avoidance of responsibility and fear of making a mistake keeps many people confused. It was once said, Life is easy, it's the decisions in life that are tough. How many times have you thought or said you would do one thing, but wound up doing something totally different or nothing at all Do you put off or take the...

Exercise 120 Simultaneous Motor Coordination

Most people realize that they can see, smell, hear, taste and touch simultaneously, but examining closely how you attend to each of these functions, you discover that your conscious awareness is limited (see Exercise -- Mindfulness Improving Your Conscious Awareness). In the beginning stages of learning a new task, the cortex crackles with electrical impulses and an increased blood flow. After the task has become sufficiently learned, the action no longer needs your conscious awareness to...

Exercise 6 Positive Affirming Positive Living

What can you accomplish when you imagine, affirm and feel that you can't Images, words and feelings all are part of affirmations. Positively expressing that you can do something is a conscious stimulant to the upper cerebral brain regions. The more you stimulate and use the upper regions of your brain, the more neural interconnections are made and the more complete your overall brain usage. Also, when you are emotionally out of balance, bacterial strains in your body grow more profusely, just...

Exercise 44 Learning To Be Decisive

Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise not have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way....

Exercise 81 Concentration Eidetic Imagery

Wilder Penfield stimulated certain brain cells with electrodes, long forgotten conversations, songs, jokes and childhood memories were evoked from his patients. If your brain registers everything that pours into your senses, then you should learn how to elicit that information from your brain's storehouse. Certain concentration skills can be learned to help initiate this process. As a practice exercise, obtain and arrange the following materials. Cut a 15 X 15 square...

Exercise 47 Eye Contact For Inner Communication

Just as microwaves can act as harmonically compatible carrier beams for extremely low frequency (ELF) wavelengths, focused eye beams can carry the emotional intentions of their transmitter. Couples in love can sometimes exchange complete emotional dialogues with one another through their eyes alone. Much of what you perceive through your eyes is a matter of interpretation in the brain. In Exercise -Experiencing Another Person's Senses, you learned that other people often perceive things...

Exercise 110 Improving Peripheral Vision Awareness

The eye's fovea is a small spot near the retina's center filled with a high concentration of photoreceptors that allows the focal point of your vision to guide visual information to the conscious thinking part of your brain but the fovea receives only a small part of the visual information entering the eye. The parafovea is an area that surrounds the fovea and can take in much more. The parafoveal cells are connected to other areas of the brain that govern reflexive or instinctive responses. To...

Exercise 217 Body Rhythms and Cycles Chronobiology

The study of biological rhythms and cycles is called chronobiology. Each one of your body's rhythms has its own timing. There are cycles governing body temperature, blood pressure, hormone levels, iron concentration in the bloodstream, heart rate, memory, mathematical acuity, sexual appetite, blood sugar levels, sleep, white blood cell count, hand strength, sensitivity to pain, eye-hand coordination, etc. Your subconscious mind interrelates your body rhythms and energies with your environment...

Exercise 107 Electromagnetic Field Awareness

Have you ever entered a room just after someone had an angry bout with someone else, and detected the angry energy in the air Have you ever been near someone seriously unstable and picked up on it even when his or her back was toward you Even areas of certain cities simply radiate a bad energy around them that is perceivable to some people. You have various energy fields surrounding your body that are directly tied into the beating of your heart. These energies course through you, interacting...

Exercise 188 Visual Telepathy

Since Peter Hurkos and other telepaths have exhibited their telepathic abilities inside a Faraday cage, (a copper-walled enclosure with 25,000 volts of electricity shielding out even radio waves), thought energy does not solely function along electromagnetic theorems. If fact, ESP experiments were performed at a phenomenally higher success rate with this screening out of interfering, electromagnetic carrier waves of extraneous energies (see Exercise -- Psionic and Psychotronic Generators)....

Exercise 2 Anchoring Positive States of Mind

During the experiments with Pavlov's dogs, it was found that the physiological response of salivation during the anticipation of food could be anchored by an external stimulus like the sound of a bell. An associative neurological circuit was consequently established in the dog's brain that later allowed just the sound of a bell and no presentation of food to elicit the salivation response. Throughout your life, haphazard anchors get neurologically created whenever your mind and body are...

Exercise 219 The Effect Of Symbols

At the age of 3, a child's brain usually struggles to adequately copy geometric symbols of squares, triangles or star, but at the age of 5, the brain of a normal child is organizing information well enough to do so. All environmental perceptions affect you through their form. Through visualization, it is possible for a skilled individual to negate the effects of form, but for most people, how you resonate with form and the energies absorbed by it determines how you are affected by it. To bring...

Exercise 184 Astral Projection Techniques

The astral body and the physical body are connected together by a 'silver cord.' There also appears to be about a 3 ounce weight loss when the astral body leaves the physical body, according to the Monroe Institute. This indicates the astral body has a molecular mass. Surprising to Westerners is the fact that almost everyone's astral body leaves the physical body during sleep. Many of your dreams and nightmares come from experiences in the astral realm. Some people even experience 'out of the...

Exercise 3 Defusing Negative Emotional States

Some of you have anchors (words, pictures, actions, etc.) that trigger you into automatic anger or vindictive states of mind. By rewiring these anchors, your undesirable states can be defused and controlled, and more constructive options can be accessed from your mind. For instance, since most people eat out of habit instead of need, you can rewire such programming in your brain through the use of anchors. Don't assume that such habits are beyond your control. Get conscious of the process at...

Exercise 176 Learning Self Hypnosis

In 1779, Mesmer published his theories and discoveries regarding animal magnetism. By 1825, the procedure was recognized as hypnosis, but not understood. Although still not fully understood, hypnosis has more recently graduated to medicine and dentistry. The power of hypnosis comes via suggestion. Suggestion (positive or negative) can have startling effects on the mind body combination, but how does hypnosis differ from mere suggestion The variable is belief. Positive suggestion during hypnosis...

Exercise 5 Eliminating Your Negative Feelings

Since many unconscious anchors that engender negative responses are sometimes elusive to recognize, this exercise will help collapse these unwanted states. To begin this exercise, trigger your anchor for confidence, and get yourself into the most powerful and positive state that you can muster. Then open your hand and put that feeling into your right hand. Now think of a time when you were enthusiastic and exhilarated over something, and put that feeling into your right hand too. Now recall a...

Exercise 209 Discerning Body Language

The study of communication through body movement is called kinesics. Dilation of your pupils takes place when you see something you like -- an attractive person, a winning poker hand, etc. Pictures of crippled children, feeding lions or unpleasant scenes contract the pupils. In times past, women dilated their eyes with belladonna (origin of atropine) to appear more attractive to men. The men subconsciously responded to the enlarged pupils and thought that the women were 'naturally' liking what...

Exercise 212 Functioning on Little or No Sleep at

How much sleep do we need Thomas Edison slept only 4 hours per night, thus adding 10 more years to his wakeful life. On July 8, 1943, Senora Ines Fernandez, 57, started a sleepless period that lasted over 30 years While standing at her cottage door in a town in southwest Spain, she watched a religious procession and suddenly felt a searing pain in her head. She never slept again No pills or medicines worked and doctors determined that this total insomnia was a result of the impairment of the...

Exercise 203 Using Quartz Crystals

Quartz crystals have been used for centuries in all parts of the world for healing purposes as well as for strengthening overall mental and spiritual abilities. In Exercise -- Psychometry, you learned that many vibrations are picked up by inanimate objects. Crystals not only pick up and store vibrations, but they focus, direct, shield, transform, balance and amplify your own vibrational energy as well. Choose your quartz crystal by the way it 'feels' to you. If a chipped and ugly one feels...

Exercise 196 Levitation

Biblical text reveals both Jesus and Peter walking across water in the Sea of Galilee. Although other levitating incidents have occurred with yogis and lamas in the East, the West has not been devoid of such occurrences. St. Francis of Assisi (1224), St. Teresa of Avila (1565), Francisco Suarez (1548-1617), Maria Corones of Agreda (1602-1665), and St. Joseph of Cupertino (1603-1663) all were Catholic religious figures that reportedly levitated. In fact, St. Joseph of Cupertino levitated so...

Exercise 82 Developing A Photographic Memory

Without memory, there is no learning but to have only a good memory of data without utilizing the information is hardly worthwhile. Daniel McCartney was born in Pennsylvania in 1817. His powers of memory were noticed at 5 or 6 years of age and they became fully acute at the age of 16. From that age on, he forgot nothing for the rest of his life He learned nothing by reading, but only by hearing, for his eyesight was poor. He could give the cube root of numbers up to the millions almost...

Exercise 183 Mental Projection Into Objects

All animate and inanimate things are in a state of vibration and in that respect, any vibrational field emitted by one thing at the subatomic level affects all vibrational fields of other things around it -- whether it be directly or indirectly. Whereas psychometry is a discerning form of attunement to the vibrations of objects that are handled, this exercise deals with getting you into sympathetic vibration with an object by merging your mentally projected body into that object. This form of...

Exercise 198 Understanding Any Spoken Language

A phenomenon know as glossolalia takes place when you suddenly speak an unknown language or dialect that formerly you had no knowledge of. In charismatic Christian circles this is called speaking in tongues. In other religions, it is called other things, but in all cases an altered state of awareness is seemingly achieved prior to the phenomenon. The operations of the conscious, willful side of the brain are suspended. As far back as Vergil (70 - 19 B.C.), there have been references to the...

Exercise 88 Peg System For Lists

Without memory, learning would fail to exist. Memory associations are either conscious or subconscious, and they are what constitute learning. By using the peg system in Exercise -- Peg System for Numbers, the following words have been assigned to the numbers from 1 - 50. By learning this set of peg words, you can associate other words to them for better recall later. If a college student is trying to remember lecture details, this same method can help 'peg' and provide useful associations for...

Exercise 16 Positive Energy Imaging

Everything in the universe is interconnected in some way. Each one of your thoughts has some kind of an effect on the things in your environment -- from the animate to the inanimate. Thoughts involving emotions are especially effective in this capacity on both yourself as well as on others. Many of these effects are discussed in other exercises in this manual. Since your adverse thoughts have adverse effects on your health and well being, beneficial thoughts have a positive influence on your...

Exercise 191 Group Telepathy

When strong emotions are telepathically transmitted to people, consciously they often go unnoticed. Subconsciously though, these telepathic energies ARE received by recipients on a subtle level, as evidenced by measurable blood volume changes in their hands. Experiments reveal that these same physiological changes (registered on instrumentation) occur regardless of the distance between the sender and the receiver. When two or more people concentrate in unison, the effect is magnified...

Exercise 199 Speed Reading At Over 2000 WPM

The eye's fovea is a small spot near the retina's center filled with a high concentration of photoreceptors that allows the focal point of your vision to send visual information to the conscious thinking part of your brain. The fovea receives only a small part of the light entering the eye, and when reading, usually no more than 7 letters are acknowledged at a time. The number of jumps your eye makes with the focal point of your vision limits you to normal reading speeds. The parafovea is an...

Exercise 165 Inner Counselors For Solving Problems

Few people become eminent men and women, but most people find themselves admiring other people of the past or present for the qualities they represent. To utilize the vast storehouse of moral opinion and knowledge in your subconscious, the invisible counselor visualization is a powerful one. Think of 2 or more people that you admire or respect because of certain attributes they possess and write their names down. Now just before going to sleep at night, imagine these people sitting at a council...

Exercise 77 Learning To Brainstorm Problems

The brainstorming method of problem solving is a technique given its name by Alex Osborn, the founder of the advertising firm of Batten, Barten, Durstine and Osborn. Brainstorming groups usually consist of from 5 to 12 people who bombard a specific problem with diverse ideas. Four basic rules govern a brainstorming session 1) Judgments of suggested ideas are suspended until later so that the group can proceed more with generating ideas than defending them. Negative looks, expressions and...

Exercise 92 61Hour Language Immersion

The term brainwashing was coined with bad connotations during the Korean War. When American soldiers were captured and subjected to an incessant, behavioral modifying treatment without sleep, their political ideologies were altered and their minds were turned against their countrymen. As cruel as such treatment seemed, it opened up gateways to a more thorough understanding of the brain's functioning. By fatiguing, confusing and quieting the left brain's conscious, analytical process, the...

Exercise 142 Improve Your Physical Strength In 7 Days

The Greek scientist and philosopher, Aristotle (384 - 322 B.C.) has been called the father of kinesiology, which is the science of motion and the body's muscle response to factors influencing motion. With applied kinesiology, manual muscle testing is used to evaluate body function and strength through the dynamics of the musculo-skeletal system. Through muscle testing, it has been found that many factors can be beneficial or detrimental to muscle strength and body function. In the laboratory, a...

Exercise 51 Journal Writing For Emotional Calming

Writing in a journal has many advantages. It can clarify your goals and sharpen your thoughts each day about what is important to you and what you really want out of life. Your self-worth is enhanced as you note your daily achievements and joys of life. Problems also seem minimized when they are written down on paper. You will learn to express your feelings better, and when you learn to express your feelings, you strengthen your relationships. Journaling can also be a form of meditation. It can...

Exercise 214 Psionic and Psychotronic Generators

Psionic generators are devices that are activated by the energy streaming from your eyes. Psychotronic generators are devices that amplify your thought energy. After suffering under years of criticism, a lot of serious research has been done to validate such devices. Years ago the CIA reportedly learned that the Soviets were using powerful psychotronic generators to amplify and beam harmful ELF (extremely low frequency) thought transmissions to major U.S. cities (in some case using...

Exercise 116 Aura Seeing

An aura is a vibrational energy surrounding every material object. Your health, personality, spirituality and past lives are reflected in your aura. Just as some people can hear sounds beyond the normal range of hearing and into the infrasonic and ultrasonic levels, other people can see a wider range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The aura is made up of several layers of varying density, and is the reflector of the soul. Your aura swirls as a colorful vibrational encasement around you several...

Exercise 179 Learn Through Time Distortion

In this hectic fast pace world, accelerated learning techniques are becoming increasingly more valuable. Learning through time distortion is harnessing the subconscious through conscious direction. Instant mental calculators and high speed readers over 2,000 wpm experience a sense of time distortion as information flashes through their mind in only seconds. Through self-hypnosis, you too can learn to review information in a time distorted fashion. As an example, one concert violinist put...

Conscious Awareness

Mindfulness takes practice like everything else. Most people conduct their daily activities without consciously 'attending' to many physical or mental processes. It's not laziness, it's just that you've practiced it more and it's just easier. You drive a car without thinking of shifting the gears. You brush your teeth, comb your hair, eat your food, walk to the house and do daily chores all automatically. When you attend to the pressure of your foot against the floor or to the sound of a...

Of Your Toes

Nichols is an armless man that worked for the FBI. Using only his toes, he typed, drove an unmodified car with an automatic stick shift, pitched softball and did all his own household chores. Many armless individuals have learned to use typewriters and other machines and instruments with the dexterity of their feet alone While blindfolded, have an assistant give you familiar objects to feel with your toes and feet for identification. First use the left foot, then the right, then...

Exercise 8 Honesty For Better Clarity

Can you imagine a world where everyone was perfectly honest Do you know what honesty really means The dictionary defines honesty as integrity, truthfulness, honor or freedom from fraud. Why are people dishonest Fear of pain or discomfort or the revealing to others that you did something wrong It was once said, that truth can only be told when the person telling it feels safe. It's sad if true, but if you're filled with fear, you can't feel safe and dishonest behavior often becomes acceptable....

Exercise 190 Sensory Telepathy

In an experiment with married couples, wives were hooked up to measure their galvanic skin response to stress while their husbands in a nearby room were shown photographs that included some pictures of ex-girlfriends. Whenever a husband looked at a former love, his wife was consciously unaware of it, but her subconscious reacted to it and registered a change on the instrument graph. In a similar experiment, husbands in another room plunged their feet into buckets of ice water. Even though their...

Exercise 9 Making Better Choices Getting Unstuck

When you practice something enough times, you get good at doing it. You might not like what you are doing, but your brain has grown accustomed to a certain neurological pattern of reacting and it's just easier to continue doing it, because it takes less energy By being conscious of this pattern of behavior, you can choose to override your habitual way of doing things, and do something else. When you do something else, you get a different result, and surprisingly...
