Mentored by Henry Reed Ph.D.
June 25 - July 22, 2014
"…the study of self…may best be done by suggestive forces to the body through hypnosis."
Edgar Cayce 1135-6
During this experimental training with self-hypnosis you will be opened up to a new skill. Edgar Cayce advised that we all could learn much about ourselves through hypnosis. This eGroup will provide you with plenty of learning material and experience with practical application that you'll be able to utilize effectively during and after this eGroup. Each week you'll have a brief reading assignment, instructions for an experiment in self-hypnosis, and the ability to discuss your findings with Dr. Reed and the group.
For optimal results, you will need a way to record your own voice reading the self-hypnosis scripts. (i.e. cassette player, digital voice recorder, computer) As a backup, you could have a friend or family member read the scripts to you. However, listening to one's own voice is much better when learning self- hypnosis.
Additionally, you’ll receive free online copies of four books for you to download and add to your reference library:
Self-Hypnosis: Creating Your Own Destiny, by Henry Leo Bolduc
Law of Psychic Phenomena: A Working Hypothesis for the Systematic Study of Hypnotism,
Spiritism and Mental Therapeutics, by Thomas Jay Hudson
(the book Cayce recommended we all read.)
The Journey Within: Past Life Regression and Channeling, by Henry Leo Bolduc
Life Patterns, Soul Lessons, and Forgiveness, by Henry Leo Bolduc
We'll learn how to use self-hypnosis to:
- Find peace and relaxation
- Gain a more positive outlook on life
- Learn about and improve your abilities
- Experience a past life.
- Receive guidance from the higher self, as did Edgar Cayce.
In this first week we will focus our vision on self-hypnosis. The goal is to help you form a constructive understanding of suggestion, drop non-helpful assumptions and ideas, and practice a very basic approach to learning the skill of letting and allowing it to happen on its own. You will also address the roll of ego during these exercises.
The focus of this week is to create a self-hypnosis recording. You will gain experience in creating your own self-hypnosis recording(s) which will support your efforts in using self-hypnosis it reach your goals.
In the third week you will build on what you have learned and experienced in the first two weeks. You will continue to use self-hypnosis to plant and rehearse positive suggestions, to experience deep affirmations of an ideal, and to have that manifest more fully in the physical life.
Finally, you will put to use the skills that you have learned in the first three weeks and you will direct the power of self-hypnosis toward seeking guidance. You will, as Edgar Cayce did, give a reading for yourself.

What's An eGroup?
Your A.R.E. eGroup will meet on an Internet discussion board. This discussion board has been created especially for A.R.E. by BulletinBoards.com, a secure Internet site that makes learning online interactive and easy. In Internet terms, your eGroup is called a "discussion board", a virtual meeting room where you will join with other like-minded people and your mentor, Henry Reed, in an interactive discussion on Self-Hypnosis.
In the virtual meeting room, you will have access to the written and audio/video materials prepared for you by Dr. Reed. Every Wednesday, he will post a lesson along with exercises for you to practice during the week. Posting is very similar to sending an e-mail, except that all the e-mails are viewed within your virtual meeting room. You may post your thoughts, questions, and experiences on the site for Dr. Reed and the other participants to read and respond to. In this way, everyone will benefit from one another's experiences and insights and the coaching offered by Dr. Reed to individuals.
Once you register for your A.R.E. eGroup, we will send you an e-mail from eGroups@edgarcayce.org detailing how to access and navigate our discussion board for the eGroup The Spiritual Applications of Self-Hypnosis. Then, you're in! You will be able to visit your eGroup any time you desire. The meeting room is accessible 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and you may participate at your convenience from anywhere in the world. There are no specified times that you have to be in the room. You decide when and how often you wish to participate.
