The Secret of the Mystery of Mesmerism. By Mrs. Annie Besant




Publications abstracted:

Annie Besant Universal Review


Mesmerism, Animal Magnetism, Light, Force, Soul

    When hypnotised a subject's bodily powers are pacified allowing the more powerful Inner Self to reveal itself as a light 'called Odic force'. Because perception is always based upon sensation, the force vibrations produced by the Inner Self may become visible to people with 'abnormally sharpened senses'.
