I wrote an e-book called Mesmerism & Miracles.
But why do I warn people about being hypnotized or Mesmerized (turning their consciousness over to another human being)?
Milton H. Erickson, M.D. (a major inspiration for the “Milton model,” NLP, family systems therapy, etc.) wrote …
“Once a therapist has been associated with a patient’s trance behavior, there is forever after some association between that therapist and the patient’s previous altered state of trance.”
Forever after? That’s a long, long time.
Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) was more conservative …
“Hypnosis can be more intimate than sex. The hypnotist takes on the karma of the hypnotized.”
So, why the heck did I write Mesmerism & Miracles if I knew about this major kink in Mesmerism’s technology?
The reason I wrote such a comprehensive book about the history of Mesmerism was to demonstrate again and again and again the amazing power of the MIND over matter.
Numerous cases of genetic diseases have been cured by hypnosis and Mesmerism.
Every animal on Earth is subject to Mesmerism. (What does that say for “suggestion?” How exactly do you “suggest” to a lion that he close his eyes?)
The POINT of Mesmerism & Miracles is that …
You can Mesmerize yourself.
You can Mesmerize your cells.
Why be a passenger in the miracle of healing and longevity?
Get behind the steering wheel and be both the healer and the healed.
Do it yourself. Why leave the job to someone who doesn’t know you as well as you know yourself?
Yes, there are quite a few examples of this kind of self-empowerment in Mesmerism & Miracles.
Plus many other inspirational examples of MENTAL FORCE at work.
There are very few incurable diseases.
“Incurable” is a word for medical philosophers who practice paralysis by analysis.

One of America’s preeminent blessings is our library system, started by Benjamin Franklin. I’ve researched in over 1,000 libraries and have had over 100 library cards — from New Zealand to Boston, from Kauai to Bellingham, Washington.

What do you think about Binaural Beats? What is an appropriate frequency, esp for relaxation or sleep?

Binaural beats have little in common with sleep and meditation.
They DO have an influence on the production of brainwaves, but brainwaves are mostly produced from WITHIN, not from without.
Anything higher than 1-4 Hertz — breaks the body down. It’s just a question of degree.
