The Hindu teaching is that only by and through concentration are possible the manifestations of the Creative Mind Principle the creation of the...

Affirmations And Verbal Statements

The principle of the mantrams may be applied to more familiar applications and manifestations of the creative power of the mind. It has been said, Words are crystallized thoughts.

Thus, if you are employing creative thought in a certain direction, as for instance, in the process of visualization, you can strengthen the mental-picture by actually saying the thing...

Occidental Oriental Hypnotism

As a professional magician hypnotist, I was fascinated by Maya. It will be noted in maya the psychically induced effects are produced in the awake condition of the subject's mind.
