The Law of Psychic Phenomena - Psychology - 1908by Thomson Jay Hudson, Jay Hudson Thomson Jay Hudson
"I do not expect this book to stand upon its literary merits; for if it is unsound in principle, felicity of diction cannot save it, and if sound, homeliness of expression cannot destroy it. My primary object in offering it to the public is to assist in bringing Psychology within the domain of the exact sciences. That this has never been accomplished..."

Written in the late 1800¿s this timeless masterpiece is a must read for the student of healing and of the mind. Hudson, a brilliant author with a purposeful command of language, clearly lays out his working hypothesis for the ¿Systematic study of Hypnotism, Spiritism and Mental Therapeutics.¿ In it he makes many distinctions starting with that of the dualistic nature of the human mind and he points clearly to the roles that each aspect of the mind plays. The objective mind, is the mind of waking consciousness and reason. It is the mind that is associated and connected to the anatomical brain. The subjective mind, is the mind of perfect memory, totally controlled by suggestion both conscious and unconscious, which is not limited to or contained within the human body, but is connected to it by emotions henceforth, the soul. The subjective mind controls the functioning of the human body and this is why guarding what the subjective mind hears and accepts is of utmost importance, especially in the area of health and healing. It is through this route that healing can be understood and accomplished. His wisdom and writing filled in missing links for me, which I found transformational.
