The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Contact Mind Reading

DEFINITIONS

Contact Mind Reading: A technique, traditionally used in the beginning of training for the development of telepathy, where one person reads the mind of another while lightly touching the other person (usually holding the hand or an arm). Also known as muscle reading or Hellstromism, after the performer Hellstrom who demonstrated this in public shows. To develop true mind reading, first learn contact mind reading, then, instead of touching the person, connect with the person through a hard objects such as a yardstick or broom handle. Once that is perfected, replace the hard object with a soft one such as a handkerchief. When that is perfected, eliminated the physical contact, but look at the personís eyes. Finally, perform tests without looking at the person.Donald Michael Kraig
