In 1892, Thomson Jay Hudson discovered a truth that, when it is fully realized, will change the course of human evolution and civilization. Hudson discovered, through his own exhaustive experiments, that anonymously intending the healing of another person results in the genuine healing of that person.*
The technology for this healing is the use of a healing suggestion directed to the subconscious of an afflicted person while they sleep. Sleep is a state of consciousness where the subconscious mind is freed from managing waking life in the physical body and, hence, is most pristinely accessible to the field of suggestion.
The healing agent must also be in a deeply relaxed, trancelike state, where telepathy can easily make the communicative link to the subconscious mind of the person to be healed. The catch is that the receiver of the healing intention must not know that such a healing effort is being made on their behalf.
To truly be effective, healing requires the complete cancellation of self-importance on the part of the healer. No one will ever know the source of the healing suggestion. There is no money to be made in this form of healing.
On 1/19/24 The Washington Post had a feature article on a new technology that could potentially cure tinnitus. In truth, the article and research itself appear to be largely derived from the producers of the healing devices. This is influencer journalism, hardly befitting The Washington Post’s prestigious legacy of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s Watergate investigation.
Most interesting was the reporting of the research and treatment outcomes, which have not yet advanced enough to be certain that the positive results could not be attributable to merely placebo. Once again, science so automatically delegitimizes the potential healing power of suggestion.
A placebo reaction is the concrete physical proof of the power of a suggestion to heal. If it is determined in this case that belief alone in the power of the device to heal resulted in placebo success, it validates the use of suggestion to heal.
Science dismisses placebo because it denies the existence of the mind as a subtle soul body, separate from the physical brain, that has tremendous power to impact the state of the body. The medical label for such a mysterious cure is the pedestrian phrase: spontaneous remission.
Of course, it is entirely possible that the devices themselves may be determined to be the healing agent. Yet, I can’t escape the possibility that scientific validation merely fortifies and raises the level of acceptance of a healing device, which becomes a powerful collective suggestion that enables a placebo cure. Perhaps all healing is, ultimately, placebo.
Aside from the materialist bias of science at present, the truth is that there is no money to be made by science, the medical profession, or industry, if healing can be affected by the power of suggestion alone. Imagine a future world where the powers of personal healing are truly awakened in the minds of all human beings. How empowering and Marxist can it get!
Of course, if it’s as simple to heal as Hudson suggests, why aren’t we there? Firstly, and a major reason why healing intentions must remain hidden, is that the knowing of them attracts the vengeance of the rational mind of self and others, whose hegemony over human life at present casts doubt and negative suggestions upon the power of healing suggestion. Such thoughts interfere with and weaken the otherwise potent healing messages presented to the subconscious mind.
To be clear, nobody can actually heal another person. Everyone has control of their own subconscious mind, which will decide what suggestions it will fulfill. The power of a healer lies in their power to present to the subconscious mind of themselves, or another, and have entertained, a healing suggestion.
There is no doubt that there are powerful hypnotists who are impacting the subconscious minds of the masses on our present world stage. However, regardless of their persuasiveness, it is ultimately up to all individuals to wake up and assume responsibility for their own entrancement. Take back your own power of suggestion to change the self, and change the world.
It is true that the ancient indigenous shamanic practices assigned the shaman the task of dropping into the underworld and retrieving the soul of the afflicted to generate healing. However, Carlos Castaneda realized that modern shamans are teachers who should empower all to take their own soul retrieval journeys. These are the healings that result in lasting transformation. No one can grow for us. We live in a time where all must wake up to the power and responsibility to direct their own healing potential for the greater good.
Furthermore, physical illnesses are often actually employed by a person’s High Self as a means to awaken them to the necessity of major changes in their life, to advance their true fulfillment. In these cases, healing suggestions taken up by the subconscious mind will likely result in healing of limited duration, as the more deeply needed change has not occurred and a return of the illness is needed to restore the path to that deeper cure.
The other major factor that inhibits healing is blocking beliefs. This is particularly the case with autosuggestion, where the conscious mind is aware of the healing suggestion to the subconscious and can inflict its rational shadow to oppose it. Beyond rationality are all sorts of beliefs around unworthiness, or the dangers of change, that can intrude upon the effectiveness of a healing suggestion.
One approach to overcome such a conundrum is to dissociate from the rational mind, and blocking beliefs, to allow a suggestion to the subconscious to be enacted. For many, this may be the power of a psychedelic substance that, once ingested, whisks the mind beyond its rational boundaries into the transpersonal realms of experience.
Robert Monroe suggests a gentler form of dissociation to reach the transpersonal. He tells people, as they deepen their relaxation, to put their rational mind and blocking beliefs into a sealed box that they will then retrieve after their journey. Freed of the weight of those blocks one can travel to the higher planes of emotional, mental and spiritual existence.
Blocking beliefs and rationality can also be allowed to remain while healing suggestions are incessantly and rotely repeated. It is not necessary for the conscious mind to believe in a suggestion; its job is to impress, via saturation, the subconscious to the point that it takes up its imperative.
What is required of the conscious mind is to have the faith that, despite all its doubts and blocks, anything is possible, and to perseveringly repeat the healing suggestions. The caveat is to not attach to the outcome.
Healing is a mysterious journey that requires us to let go of control and track the path presented in response to our healing suggestion. Sometimes that path might deepen the illness through a healing crisis that results in major transformation. Sometimes that path leads to death’s door, a healing that requires the ultimate transformation beyond human form.
Though we share our lives with others at various levels of transparency and intimacy, when it comes to healing suggestions there is great benefit to keeping the existence of those suggestions to oneself. Avoiding the trappings of self-importance, as well as the adverse suggestions of others, gives one’s suggestions optimal opportunity for an audience with the subconscious mind, the one part of the self that truly does have the power to heal.
No one knows,
