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