Mystic eye is a phenomenon of physical reaction to your conscious subconscious
and super conscious mind. The mystic eye is that it sees all, knows all and
Instructions for the use of mystic eye
The mystic eye consists of psycho-activated pendulum and answers YES and NO.
Relax, hold the string of the Pendulum between the thumb and forefinger. Rest
your elbow on the table, so that the pendulum is suspended about ¼ inch about
the "eye". Think of a question or ask a question in a fairly loud tone. Remove
all skepticisms from your mind and concentrate your attention on the Eye. The
Pendulum will then swing in the direction of the answer. Do not move your hand
or attempt to control the motion of the Pendulum. You will discover that your
subconscious thoughts are as powerful as a giant motor.
Type of question one may ask
One may ask a question about any subject relevant to oneself or one's
surrounding, one's past, one's present or future, about love, health, business,
money or success. The mystic eye may also be used as a lie detector or self
The mystic eye responds when one ask or are asked a question, the pendulum will
start moving or swinging in the direction of the answer. It is not necessary to
stop the motion of the pendulum when asking a new question. If the pendulum is
answering "yes" to a question and the next question calls for a "no" answer,
the pendulum will automatically slow down with a circular motion and then swing
to "no" answer. If there is slight delay in motion of the Pendulum it indicates
lack of concentration. This can be corrected by starting with a more jotting
question. Besides one can know the date of birth of a person and answer to many
futuristic questions using mystic eye.

gazing and much about the mystic eye and way to use it can be found in the book
