Entering The Trance

"Let the influence have its course--say what you feel you MUST say, and

never mind about your own state of consciousness. You will be much more

likely to pass into the unconsciousness of the trance (if you desire to

do so) if you say, 'Now, spirit friend, I trust myself to you, and will

yield my body and brain to your control, for you to do the best you can

with and through me. I am willing to co-operate with you for the time

being, and trust you to do your utmost for the good of others.' It is

not necessary that you should be utterly unconscious, although you may

think it is, to prove that another intelligence is operating upon and

through you. The evidence of that fact will be displayed in the nature

of the message and the unusual ability displayed by you when under the

stimulating influence of the operator.
