this, place your hand on the top of his head and press your thumb 

firmly on the organ of individuality, bearing partially downward, and 

with the other thumb still pressing the _ulnar nerve_, tell him, _You 

cannot open your eyes!_ Remember that your manner, your expression of 

countenance, your motions, and your language must all be of the same 

positive character. If he succeed in opening his eyes, try it once or 

twice more, because impressions, whether physical or mental, continue 

to deepen by repetition. In case, however, that you cannot close his 

eyes, nor see any effect produced upon them, you should cease making 

any further efforts, because you have now fairly tested that his mind 

and body both stand in a positive relation as regards the doctrine of 

impressions. If you succeed in closing the subject's eyes by the above 

mode, you may then request him to put his hands on his head, or in any 

other position you choose, and tell him, _You cannot stir them!_ In 

case you succeed, request him to be seated, and tell him, _You cannot 

rise!_ If you are successful in this, request him to put his hands in 

motion, and tell him, _You cannot stop them!_ If you succeed, request 

him to walk on the floor, and tell him, _You cannot cease walking!_ As 

so you may continue to perform experiments, involving muscular motion 

and paralysis of any kind that may recur to your mind, till you can 

completely control him in arresting or moving all the voluntary parts 

of his system. 

 

 

MESMERISM. 

 

If you desire to mesmerize a person, who has never been put in that 

state, nor in the least affected, the plan is to set him in an easy 

posture and request him to be calm and resigned. Take him by both 

hands, or else by one hand and place your other gently on his 

forehead. But with whatever part of his body you choose to come in 

contact, be sure to always touch two points, answering to the 

_positive_ and _negative_ forces. Having taken him by both hands, fix 

your eyes upon his, and, if possible, let him contentedly and steadily 

look you in the face. Remain in this position until his eyes close. 

Then place both your hands on his head, gently pass them to his 

shoulders, down the arms, and off at the ends of his fingers. Throw 

your hands outward as you return them to his head, and continue these 

passes till he can hear no voice but yours. He is then entirely in the 

mesmeric state. When a person is in the mesmeric state, whether put 

there by yourself or someone else, you can awake him by the upward 

passes, or else do it by an impression, as follows: Tell him, "I will 

count _three_, and at the same instant I say _three_ I will slap my 

hands together, and you will be wide awake and in your perfect senses. 

Are you ready?" If he answers in the affirmative, you will proceed to 

count "One, two, three!" The word three should be spoken suddenly, and
