The Practical Magnetic Healer
G. M. Brown
    There are two ways by which communication can be established between two persons.  One is through objective and the other through subjective means.  By the latter is meant that the subjective minds of two persons can communicate between themselves without the aid of any materialistic contrivances, but simply by the power of the will of the person so desiring it.

    There are certain conditions that are necessary in order to make the desired communication a success.  The first, total passivity upon the part of the recipient is absolutely necessary for the purpose of receiving telepathic communications from the operator.  The most perfect condition of passivity is in the sleeping state, either natural or hypnotic.  It is claimed that there is no difference between natural and hypnotic sleep.  The sleep seems to be the same in both.  There are, however, degrees of difference.  What is meant by degrees is, in natural sleep the subject goes into sound sleep, and in health is always about the same.  But in hypnosis there seems to be well-defined degrees, say for instance there are six degrees in all.  But when it comes to natural sleep, there has never been more than two as far as the writer is aware.  Be this as it may, it is apparent that for the purpose of communication at a distance or to treat a patient by the absent method we can use to best advantage the condition of natural sleep.  This method of treatment is much like the office treatment inasmuch as the potent element to be reached is the same.  Hudson says:

    1st.  “The subjective mind is amenable to control by suggestion during natural sleep just the same as it is during induced sleep.

    2nd.  “The condition of natural sleep, being the most perfect passive condition attainable, is the best condition for the reception of telepathic impressions by the subjective mind.

    3rd.  “The subjective mind of the operator can be forced to communicate telepathic suggestions to the subjective mind of his patients by willing it to do so, upon retiring at night.”

    “The condition is irresistible that the best possible condition for the conveyance of therapeutic suggestions from the healer to the patient is attained when both are in a state of natural sleep, and that such suggestions can be communicated by an effort of will on the part of the healer just before going to sleep.  See Hudson’s L. of P. P.

    The most successful method of absent treatment while in the waking state is to at first have an understanding or an agreement with your patient previous to taking treatment.  The patient should have stated times for treatment, at which time he should be directed to go to a quiet and secluded place, preferably his sleeping apartment, and assume a recumbent position, and relax all physical and mental tension and make himself passive to the suggestions of health and strength from his operator.  If the patient goes to sleep with those thoughts upon his mind, all the better, for he is then in a condition to receive the suggestions sent to him for his benefit.  He will awake with a better feeling and will find his health much improved.  Usually those passive periods should be just after retiring at night and before arising in the morning.

    The united force of the two subjective minds, exercised with a special intention, for a certain purpose, the power of which is irresistible, and the patient will surely receive the benefit.

    It is possibly an advantage to know the character and extent of the disease, objectively, of which his patient is suffering.  He then could direct the subjective mind more specifically.  However, the subjective mind may be trusted to make its own diagnosis and apply the remedies to suit the case.  There is always a mutual benefit in treating patients by this method, as the suggestions passing through the subjective mind of the operator to that of the patient’s there seems to be a mutual stimulating effect on account of both minds being in rapport.

    The simple method for the opereator upon going to sleep is to concentrate his mind for the purpose of impressing upon his subjective mind the task of conveying to the subjective mind of the patient the suggestions intended for his benefit.

    Another is that the operator formulates a thought suggestion in his mind and sends it out for that particular patient.  This thought suggestion by intention goes on forever, or for any length of time so intended, and the patient receives this thought whenever he is passive to it, and his subjective mind is impressed with those suggestions and gives them expression in his own body.  His objective mind may recognize those thoughts as his own, which is to a certain extent true.  But that does not prevent them from originating within the mind of the operator.  The agreement may be for a certain length of time.  At the expiration of the time so agreed upon, the suggestions will have no further effect upon the patient.  Consequently it is necessary to inform the patient that the time has expired and treatment will cease until the agreement is renewed.

    The absent treatment patient must be thoroughly impressed with the importance of following your instructions to the very letter if the best results are to be expected, as the cure depends in a great measure upon the patient doing his part and doing it well.

    “See thou tell no man.”

    The patient should be cautioned against letting the fact be known that he is taking treatment, as any person that is suddenly healed by this treatment, it is absolutely necessary that he should not talk upon the subject for a few days, or to persons who are skeptical for obvious reasons.  Skeptics are always ready to give adverse suggestions, such as ridicule, doubts, fears, etc., etc.
