When patients use the fingers themselves, the gravity works against the force if the hand is palm upward. It is a more spectacular performance. Any position is perfectly adequate, however.
INTUITIVE JUDGING OF TRANCE DEPTH QUESTION
What criteria are you using for checking depth of trance? ANSWER
Strictly intuition. I ask questions of my own fingers, numbering the thumb one, little finger five, on a one to five scale. One is the waking state, and five is over the edge into a deep trance. And I ask my unconscious periodically how deep the effect is. It's a matter of testing one's own hunches or intuitions. That, of course, is a matter of experience and practice. QUESTION
Then would you say there is rapport on the so-called unconscious level? ANSWER
Yes, I do feel that there is rapport on an unconscious level.
