Mind Reading

Perhaps the best plan for the beginner is to practice the popular "mind

reading" experiment or game, which is quite popular in some localities,

and among persons interested in this line of thought. The experiments of

this kind are performed, generally, about as follows: The receiver

leaves the room, and during his or her absence the company in the room

select some object, large or small, such as a chair or a small penknife,
r /> etc., and the same is shown and named to the sender. Then the receiver

is called back into the room for the experiment, and is blindfolded

securely. Then the receiver takes the right hand of the sender and

places it in his (the receiver's) left hand, holding it firmly there.

The sender then concentrates his mind upon the object to be "found," and

mentally wills that the receiver move toward it. The receiver then

experiences a peculiar faint impulse in the direction of the object, and

accordingly moves toward it. After considerable practice, the receiver

acquires the faculty of not only finding large objects, but also is able

to locate small objects, such as concealed rings, pins, etc.
