prepare the spiral
The device designed to rotate the spiral is no longer
If one becomes
available I will let you know. Currently the
best option is to rotate
the spiral on a phonographic
turntable. To prepare the spiral take a pin and punch a
small hole in the center of the spiral.
Take a 45-rpm
phonographic record and glue the spiral to the record in the following manner:
Place the spiral blank side up on a smooth, clean
apply the adhesive to the blank side.
Place the record on the blank side of the spiral and line up the pinhole in the
center of the hole
in the record. Press down firmly over the
entire surface, and place a heavy object on the record
and allow to dry. After drying scribe and trim the excess paper from around the
of the spiral. To attach the spiral to an
LP phonographic record (larger) scribe and trim the
excess paper first and then attach. Rotate spiral on a phonographic turntable.
speed (LP) is ideal. The spiral may also be hand held on a pin or nail and turned slowly.
use the spiral
The spiral has been specifically designed to
in your subject or in yourself with self hypnosis.
Sample suggestion for use with the spiral:
“Look into the center of the spiral. Do not, at any time,

large tree and you are
looking into a still pool of clear water. In the bottom of the pool you are

very slight breeze blowing.
It is a peaceful, sleepy day and you’re getting sleepier and sleepier. You are
tired and you want to
sleep. Sleep, sleep, you are going to sleep. Your eyes close and you drift into
These suggestions can be used for
self-hypnosis by substituting the word “you” with “I”, etc.
The above is only a suggestion. Watch the
spiral for a while yourself and you will discover
suggestions to give. Occasionally good results can be obtained by suddenly
telling the subject that the spiral is now expanding. This will
happen after one has
viewed the spiral for
1-2 minutes. You should be familiar with
procedure before experimenting with the spiral.
