If you can gently slap a person on the shoulder in a more artful than a bold way, and, at the same time, concentrate your mind upon the contact, and will that you emit a current of your magnetism to them, you will find that in many cases he will experience a tingling feeling of warmth, or a noticeable shock as from an electric battery.
There is no one that is not susceptible to magnetism, but there is a big difference in people. Those who have a powerful mentality could only be influenced by another of exceedingly powerful mentality. Before you can influence another they must be in a passive or open mind. Those who you think you could least affect would be the easiest for you to affect.
Never try to influence a person when they are excited, nervous or under great anxiety or mental trouble. If these conditions exist try to remove them by sympathy, cheerfulness and your assurance that everything will probably turn out all right in the end. The more passive a person is, the easier he is to affect.
The hands can be made a powerful means of imparting your magnetic fluid to others. If your hands are naturally soft and silky, and perspire freely, it is of great help, as the magnetic fluid has an easy outlet. But if your hands are not so they must be made so by dabbing them with some good oil every night. Also rub your hands together a good deal. In this way your circulation is increased. This will soften and freshen them up, and cause the magnetic fluid to flow more freely.
Whenever you have the chance of placing your hands on one you wish to influence you should do it, and at the same time will that you are imparting a flow of your magnetism to them. This will arouse the force within you and increase your magnetic power.
