A restorative system for home and private use, preceded by a study of the laws of mental healing.
This book was described by James Allen as "...a work of great originality and practical utility. In it he enunciates, and graphically illustrates by whole-page word-pictures, a system of "ideal suggestion" for the cure of disease and the eradication of inharmonious conditions, which, though grounded upon deep spiritual Truths, is simple and easily grasped. For those who are just beginning to awaken spiritually, it cannot fail to prove of great value in helping them to create spiritual suggestions in themselves by which to overcome downward tendencies. His method is widely distinguished from self-hypnotism, and is, in reality, the outward presentation of an inward process that is continually going on in the souls of those who aspire to wholeness of life, and the author points out that his word-pictures are merely "aids during the educational unfoldment of the concentrative faculty." He deals with the mental causation and cure of disease, but points out that "the overcoming of disease is not the chief and primary object in the aspiration to spiritual consciousness," but the attainment of divine Life."
Part I. of this work Is a study of the Laws of Mental Healing, and Part II. embodies them in a restorative system, formulated and arranged for home and private use. Visionary and impracticable aspects of the subject are eliminated, and a scientific basis is found. The book is not technical, but thoroughly plain and concise, and will prove a boon to invalids and a valuable addition to the substantial literature of the subject.
