Bring about a feeling of inner relaxation in the whole body... concentrate on the body and become aware of the importance of complete stillness. <pause>. Develop your awareness of the body from the top of the head to the tips of the toes and say in your mind "My mind is still, still, still and my body is relaxed, relaxed, relaxed". <pause>. Complete stillness and complete awareness of the whole body... say again in your mind "My mind is still, still, still and my body is relaxed, relaxed, relaxed." <pause>. Continue your awareness of the whole body... the whole body... the whole body. <long pause>.

State your intent to yourself at this point. The intent will be very simple... discover one naturally. Develop an intent to say at this time. <pause>. Make it a short, positive statement in simple language... stated three times with awareness, feeling and emphasis. <long pause>.

Now we begin rotation of consciousness, rotation of awareness by taking a trip through the different parts of the body. Repeat the part in your mind and simultaneously become aware of that part of the body. Keep yourself alert yet avoid concentrating too intensely. Become aware of the right hand.

Right thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, little finger, palm of the right hand, back of the hand, the right wrist, the lower arm, the elbow, the upper arm, the shoulder, the armpit, become aware of the right waist, the right hip, the right thigh, the kneecap, the calf, the ankle, the heel, the sole of the right foot, become aware of the top of the foot, the big toe, second toe, third toe, fourth toe, fifth toe...

Become aware of the left hand thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, little finger, palm of the left hand, back of the hand, the wrist, the lower arm, the left elbow, the upper arm, the shoulder, the armpit, become aware of the left waist, the left hip, the left thigh, the kneecap, the calf, the ankle, the heel, the sole of the left foot, become aware of the top of the foot, the big toe, second toe, third toe, fourth toe, fifth toe...

Now to the back. Become aware of the right shoulder blade, the left shoulder blade... the right buttock, the left buttock... the spine... the whole back together...

Now go to the top of the head. The top of the head; the forehead, both sides of the head, the right eyebrow, the left eyebrow, the space between the eyebrows, the right eyelid, the left eyelid, the right eye, the left eye, the right ear, the left ear, the right cheek, the left cheek, the chin, the throat, the right side of the chest, the left side of the chest, the middle of the chest, the navel, the abdomen...

The whole of the right leg... the whole of the left leg... both legs together... <pause>. The whole of the right arm... the whole of the left arm... both arms together... <pause>. The whole of the back, buttocks, spine, shoulder blades... the whole of the front, abdomen, chest... the whole of the back and front together... the whole of the head... the whole body together... the whole body together... the whole body together. <pause>.

Now that your body is completely relaxed and you are aware of every part, imagine that you are standing in the very center of your own brain. You are only a quarter of an inch tall and you can stand easily within the small cavity that is formed by your pineal gland above and your pituitary gland below. It is safe and warm and comfortable. You notice a wonderful and strange thing: this place is full of light, memories, visions of understanding, intuitions, flashes of inspiration, feelings of connectedness and relationship with all life. Notice how these images pass by you like beautifully colored birds, flowing pictures, and primary shapes. Allow the understandings to come to you naturally and easily. Notice how your body feels with each image you encounter. Just make note of it and let it pass by.

In this wonderful space there is quiet, serenity, peace. It is also a magical space. Above is the pineal, the key to your spiritual connection with higher consciousness. Below you is the pituitary, the key to the physical dimension of self. In this space between the two is the magic of pure creativity. A number of different things will be named now. Develop a vision of them on all levels... feeling, awareness, emotion, imagination, as best you can... <pause>. Just allow any image to come to you. <pause>.

Burning candle... burning candle... burning candle... endless desert... endless desert... endless desert... Egyptian pyramid... Egyptian pyramid... Egyptian pyramid... torrential rain... torrential rain... torrential rain... snow capped mountains... snow capped mountains... snow capped mountains... temple at sunrise... temple at sunrise... temple at sunrise... solitary coffin beside a grave... solitary coffin beside a grave... solitary coffin beside a grave... birds flying across a sunset... birds flying across a sunset... birds flying across a sunset... red clouds drifting... red clouds drifting... red clouds drifting... a cross above a church... a cross above a church... a cross above a church... stars at night... stars at night... stars at night... full moon... full moon... full moon... smiling Buddha... smiling Buddha... smiling Buddha... wind from the sea... wind from the sea... wind from the sea... waves breaking on a deserted beach... waves breaking on a deserted beach... waves breaking on a deserted beach... the restless sea... eternal restless sea... eternal restless sea...

Now flash on the end result of your Light-Speed Reading experience. Flash on what you will be like when you have completed this course in reading. Flash on reading whole books at once. Flash on it... <pause>.

Now is the time to repeat your intent... repeat the same intent that you made earlier, repeat the intent three times with full awareness and feeling.

Any thought or intention imagined in this magical space is sure to come into physical manifestation so imagine your life exactly as you desire it to be. State your intention out loud to yourself. Allow this image to become one unlimited thought. Now take the thought out of your head and place it in your cupped physical hands in front of you. With your unlimited thought held in front of you in your two hands, quickly blow into your hands and release your intent into the universe as though you were casting seeds out into the air. This begins the physical process of creation.

Return now to your quiet, still, space again and allow the satisfaction of pure creation to sweep over you like clear sparkling water. Imagine that light is flowing through you like the water: coming into your head from the pineal and flowing out your feet to the pituitary. Know that your creation is perfect. Know that it is deserving and acknowledged by universal mind, infinite power, God. Let this knowing fill your entire being... your entire being... your entire being... <pause>.

It is time now to return to the physical dimension of time and space from which we came. Allow your mind to begin to notice the physical space that you occupy. Feel that which touches your own body in present time. Sense that you have returned to the room and open your eyes here and now.
