First in learning of genuine East Indian Magic must be the cultivation of your mystic source of energy (prana), for it is prana that places power behind your magic. Prana provides that power in charging the magic twins of imagination will with force. The Yogis have developed over centuries of study, certain methods of charging the mind and nervous system with prana through techniques of life-giving breath. This particular method of breathing, referred to by the master teachers as Pranayama (prana absorbing rhythmic breathing), is vital to the performance of magic. To this end, study the science of Pranayama as taught in the Orient. It is carefully mastered by all who would be magicians. Pranayama in definition is the science of the regulation of breath for the purpose of controlling, directing, and applying the prana or vital energy force. Pranayama is largely concerned with rhythmic breathing consisting of stages of inhalation, retention, and exhalation of the breath in prescribed...
By means of arousing into activity the power of prana, the Yogis are able to direct the pranic energy, by the use of the will, into the various parts and organs of their bodies, thus strengthening them to a great degree. By similar methods, they are able to revitalize others and perform various forms of mental healing which is regarded as one of the magics of India.
The real East Indian magicians in producing their mysteries, require the employment of prana in connection with the creative mind, feel the necessity of regarding their body as a living battery of prana, and keeping that battery well charged. To this end, they perform the following pranic exercise 3 While performing this rhythmic breath, visualize, feel, and will that the prana you are absorbing with each breath will be distributed in your closed circuit of the living battery in your body, as well as by all the pranic centers, chakras, and nadis.
The magicians also practice a technique of charging water with prana, the water in turn being drunk by persons in need of a higher charging of prana within themselves. The method is particularly used in the treatment of ill persons. In this Yogi practice, the glass or cup of water is held in the left hand, letting the bottom of same rest, in the hollowed palm of that hand. Rhythmic breathing is then performed as has been instructed. The right hand is then held over the glass or cup in the process of this breathing gather the fingertips together over the water, then shake them gently toward the water as if one were trying to throw from the fingertips little drops of water that had gathered on them. After a few moments of this shaking, open the right hand and pass the palm slowly around the top of the glass or cup, about six inches above it. Perform this pass above the glass in a circular motion seven times. Through all of this process of pranazing the water, visualize, feel, and will...
In the pranic treatment by the use of the breath, the Yogi healer practices rhythmic breathing, and in his exhalations he breathes directly upon the affected and ailing parts, or upon the surface of the skin directly above such. In some cases, the healer exhales his rhythmic breath upon a piece of flannel or cloth which is then placed over or upon the affected and ailing region of the body. This method produces a sensation of warmth and a general soothing effect upon the patient. During the process the healer constantly visualizes, feels, and wills the flow of prana, together with the desired result.

I think you just put it down to what happened today and what's going to happen tomorrow. One of the interesting things he said was about health. He said I had a good health, but that I think one way he put it was something about I don't accept you know, how as you get a bit older you can't do the things you did 5 or 10years ago.

Rockwell's observation in health-building amongst the various creeds and cults and a study of the patients and Doctors gave him a great slant on what the public as a hole wanted and were willing to pay for. As a reformer he could lose, but as a health comedian apparently serious in his health-building advice, he would be successful. He discovered he psychology of his audience and went accordingly. To begin with, he discovered that he first had to gain a bond of understanding with his audiences and meet them on their plane first. Down in the heart of most everyone there is a desire to do something off the strict laws that Nature demands for perfect health. People like to smoke, drink a bit, overeat, over-indulge, etc. So, in coming on dressed as a successful physician he broke the tension by having a large overgrown cigar in his mouth and gave people that after-dinner feeling of Now, we'll all relax and sit around for a food chat and a good time.

This a popular form of pranic breathing in India . The Yogis practice it in order to call into activity the whole nervous system and centers of the body, and to distribute the prana to the plexuses which serves as its natural reservoirs and storage batteries of prana. In The Grand Yoga Breath Exercise the various chakras are aroused to activity, and, at the same time, the nadis are stimulated and energized. In it, also, the power of creative mind is invoked and applied in an effective manner. The exercise is performed as follows By this procedure, each chakra is energized and stimulated by the inflowing prana thus directed to it. Here is the list of chakras to be reached in the way just instructed, in the order in which they are to be aroused in the exercise visualizing, feeling, and willing a great current of prana to sweep over the
As Parimal Bandhu explained it, By the process of alternate breathing, we can control the various nerve currents that are running through the body. First, we begin by recognizing them, and then we slowly get control of them. The Yogis consider that there are three main currents of prana in the human body. One they call Ida, another Pingala, and the third Sushumna. Pingala is on the right side of the spinal column, the Ida is on the left side, and in the middle of the spinal column is the Sushumna, a vacant channel. Pingala and Ida are the currents operating in every man and woman, and through these curreny we perform the functions of life. Sushumna is likewise present in every person, as a possibility, but is in operation only in the Yogi and those of high psychical development. The aim of the magician is to achieve the ability of putting the Sushumna into operation, and the means of achieving this aim is through the science of Pranayma via the control of the breath. Thus the process...
In the Hindu practice of Pranayama, in which prana is generated, directed, and applied in various ways by certain methods of breathing, it will be found that the principle of rhythm is present in all these techniques. This is based upon the recognition by the Hindu Sages of the important part played by rhythm in the activities of the Universe. The Hindu sages attach great importance to the maintenance of rhythm in the Pranayama breathing. They hold that in this way they become in tune with the rhythmic vibrations of Nature, and are thus able to partake of her energies and strength. They hold that by falling in with certain established rhythms of Nature, the magician is able to manifest power which otherwise would not be at his disposal. Accordingly, by mastering the inner rhythm of certain manifestations of prana, the magician is able to master, control, and direct the energies and forces of prana according to his desires and will. In the rhythmic beathing in Pranayama, the Yogis seek...
The Nadis are psychic nerve channels which extend to all parts of the body in countless number, and which serve to carry the prana to every organ and part thereof. The Yogi teach that these channels of the nadis must be kept open and free, so as to allow an uninterrupted flow of prana through them. They have designed special exercises for this purpose. There are specifically three of these The Nadi Purifier, The Nadi Stimulator, and The Nadi Vibrator. The Nadi Purifying Exercise should be used at the beginning of any practice of rhythmic breathing as it clears and cleanses, purifies and rends free the channels of the nadis, and thus allows for an excellent flow of prana through the. system. It is performed by this fourfold process
This thought form is created by thought in the akasha, and powerfully energized with prana manifests an intense degree of vibratory motion. Coming in contact with the chitta, or mind stuff of the other person or persons, it imposes upon it its distinct character and rate of psychic vibration, and thus sets up vritti waves in the chitta of the person, or, in other words, it reproduces in his mind the thought projected to him. This thought projection in silent psychic influence, however, is different from ordinary thought transference, as the latter usually requires a specific rapport between persons. In silent psychic influence there is no such attunement, and it is not mere thoughts which are projected but rather a thought form along a psychic path through space which is physically set up between the projector and the recipient. In this there is not merely a wave or energy charged with thought instead there is an astral or etheric form charged with prana which travels unerroringly to...
3 During the performance of the rhythmic breathing in unison, you must visualize, feel, and will the flow of prana as passing from out of yourself and into the other person picturing, feeling, and willing it to flow through your hands into his or hers. The second method for this purpose is to have the other person seated back to back with you the two spinal columns touching each other, each person assuming the Asana position as used in the living battery process which you have studied. Then breathe in unison, precisely as described in the first method while projecting the prana into the other person by visualization, feeling, and willing it to flow from one spinal column to the other. Either of these two methods of imparting pranic energy to others may be used, and are employed by the magicians in helping the other person use these psychic methods to gain physical improvement, circumstances, etc. In all such cases (which the magicians refer to as treatments by prana ), the thought of...
You will note that I use the words apparently defying the laws of nature and seeming to accomplish the impossible because nothing ever really defies Nature. The Adept produces his magic by controlling nature in advanced ways unsuspected by the average person. To accomplish this magical purpose, the Adept employs exactly the same principles of magic which you have learned, but to such a degree has he advanced his powers that his visualization projected upon the akasha, held firm by unshakable will, and energized by highly concentrated prana is sufficient to cause an actual materialization in the substance of the akaska, bringing forth a unique physical occurrence which to the uninitiated seems most magical in nature. This is the modus operandi of the As an instance of how an effect of High Magic has been imitated, recall the Mango Tree Trick of the fakir, and the deceptive way it was accomplished. In an Adept's performance of this same effect, there occurs a real and actual rapid...
In the production of this form of magic, Bandu told me, the magician employs the power of concentrated visualization, energized by what is called prana. By directing his will, the magician causes his mental images to project themselves as real to the vision of his audience. In this way, he produces an illusion a form of which the Adepts call maya, whereby the senses of the observers report as fact things that have no real existence. In other words, the magician creates and projects a powerful and concentrated thought form, which to the observers seems temporarily to exist as reality. Here, at last, is the real secret of the famous East Indian Rope Trick. It is held by the Hindu Sages that there is-no magic that is supernatural. The supernatural belongs to the superstitious, while real magic is supernormal. In otherwords, magic is above and beyond the normal occurrences in nature but functions always in complete accordance with her laws. The Adepts instruct that there are three...
Since I want yon all to stay healthy, the memory feats in this lesson utilize a regular deck of cards not with five, but with the usual four Aces. Truthfully, although this chapter is devoted entirely to remembering playing cards, I am stressing the demonstrations you can do with a deck of cards and your trained memory. The systems, however, can be applied to many card games. Please don't think that after you've mastered these you can always win at cards. Keep in mind that you can't beat a man at his own game. I will leave the applications of the systems up to you I use them for demonstration purposes only.
We come now to one further point in the directions of the Eastern Adepts for Oriental Hypnotism, and that is to charge your visualized projected thoughts with Prana. As you have learned, prana is regarded as a form of psychical energy of universal presence that can be used by the Adept to energize his psychic efforts. You use it in precisely this way in the present instance of visualization, projection, and affirmation in relation to this hypnotic process. As access to prana is effectively generated by rhythmic breathing, in this connection you will now be given a simple means of charging both yourself and your subject with prana. As occidental procedure of hypnosis recognizes a dynamic condition of cooperation between the hypnotist and the subject, it will be found good procedure to commence this cooperation on a mutual effort right during the interview portion of the induction. By having your subject engage in the prana charging exercise with you, you accomplish thus a dual purpose...
In employing this principle of affirmation or verbal statement in relation to the performance of magic, keep in mind the statement of Swami Vivekananda in which he reminds his pupils that the highest form of mantra is that in which there is no utterance by the voice, but in which there is rather a mental muttering accompanied by a tKinkingof the meaning. The vocal mantram is too apt to dissipate its power in mere sound. The subtle mentally-uttered mantram, on the other hand, conserves its power and energy, and employs it in the mental projection and psychic propulsion. In this handling, the words are converted into bullets of energy saturated by prana, instead of being shot of lifeless verbal material. Used thus, we have the true magic of words.

The generation and distribution of certain forms of prana within the nervous system. In Pranayma, the practice of the correct rhythmic breathing, there is set into action the forces of the sushumna and its associated chakras in the direction of arousing, releasing, and directing the kundalini or serpent power. Thus by the oriental system of rhythmic breathing the magician releases and directs the potent kundalini according to his will, and in this process produces the power for his performance of the real magic of India. In the rhythmic breathing of Pranayama comes a tendency of all the molecules of the body to flow in the same direction. And when mind changes into will, these currents change into a motion similar to that of electricity in exact manner that the nerves show polarity under the action of electric currents. For your understanding, this shows that will evokes within the nerve currents an action very similar to electricity. Indeed, it is intimately related to electricity....

You are very much worried about your health - there appears to be some basis for this worry, and also you are allowing your imagination to run away with your logic. You are discouraged because your doctor hasn't been able to do more for you - you have reached a point where your confidence in your doctor is almost gone. This is an unfortunate situation, and because you no longer have confidence in him. I do believe a change of physicians would help you. However, you must be patient, and stop worrying. You can do much for yourself - and I am sure
Of course, the process can also be reversed in order to promote empowering beliefs. A behavior or capability may be elevated to an identity level statement. For example, one could say, Your ability to be creative in that situation means that you are a creative person. Other examples include surviving - survivor achieving health - healthy person succeeding - successful person and so on. This type of reformulation serves to deepen or strengthen a person's sense of his or her resources.
The Yogis lay great stress upon the subject of asanas, which means the right postures or physical carriage when performing Pranayama and esoteric practices. The Yogi aphorism states, The ideal of asana is relaxation, ease, and balance of mind and body. During the practice of Pranayama, there is a good deal of action going on within the body. Nerve currents are displaced and given a new channel. New sorts of vibrations begin the whole constitution is remodeled. The main part of this action lies along the spinal column, so that the one most important necessity for the correct asana is to hold the spinal column free by sitting erect, and holding the chest, neck, and head in a straight line. The chief elements in the Yogi posture or asana which you should employ in your Pranayama methods are In the next chapter of this book, I shall instruct you further into specific techniques of Oriental Rhythmic Breathing for various purposes, and of the force and power of prana.

The wonderful book Show-Time at the Tom Foolery by Richard Kaufman contains the methods for most of Tom's devastating routines. But withheld from that book was the method for The Nicotine Nincompoop.

So now you too can do amazing things with cigarettes, the only drawback being that you'll risk destroying your health and incurring the wrath of politically correct audiences for whom cigarette smokers are about as popular as bubonic plague carriers.

You have many untroubled years ahead when your faculties, both physical and mental, will serve you well in pursuit of your ambitions. You are naturally disposed to take an interest in your health, and are rarely if ever inclined to be reckless in health matters or to take unnecessary risks.
Before we start, let me give you a little background on the prop itself- Most hospitals have gone to the plastic, disposeable bedpans. They are discarded after a single use . Those of you who don't like to pay for your magic (like the people who contribute to this sheet for free issues) have at least two options to get the prop for free. First, you may wish to run through the trash of the local hospital until you come across one that has already been discarded. Your other (less demeaning) option is to check into the hospital with seme phony disease. Your health insurance will pay the bills. You can tell the nurse that you had a big lunch and will need two bedpans. When finished with one of them, use David Brenner's idea of pouring water around the outside of the pan before handing it back. When whe feels the pan, she will forget that she gave you two of them to start with and you will have a free prop.
In general, making healing passes with the hands are used in this method of healing for the distribution of prana. One method is to extend the open fingers of each hand, like the sticks of a folding fan. Hold the opened hands about one foot from the body of the patient. Then raise them above the patient's head, and bring them down along the body in a slow, sweeping motion from his head to his feet. When the pass is completed, move the hands side wise, making a motion as though you were flicking water from them. Then close the fingers together, Showing various methods of projecting prana to the patient by the hands. In the upper photograph, the patient's hands are gripped by the magician, with the inside of the balls of thumbs touching. The prana is projected from thumbs to thumbs, and accordingly into the hands and up the arms. In the lower photograph, the prana is projected from the magician s hands encircling the patient's head the thumbs are placed on the patient's forehead...
Anyway, I hold fast to my point -- fuck challenges. Now, its true, it may sound like a bitter decry from someone who likes to whine and complain about the difficulty of getting laid. But allow me to clarify. I do not like chellenges when it comes to getting NECESSITIES of life. Challenges getting food, shelter, and water are not fun, nor are they conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Same thing with sex. I look at sex much like other vital functions such as breathing, urinating, and taking a shit. It is a necessary human action. Men need to ejaculate. It is a NECESSITY to do so. Failure to do so can lead to disease and other medical problems. In fact, when men do not ejaculate, the body finds a way to do so on its own, through the use of wet dreams and such.
Now, it is a status symbol. Showing off your 125 balsamic vinegars, imported Scottish game hens, gourmet cooking classes and huge trophy kitchen is just another way of advertising how wealthy you are.
