What do we really know about the power contained in our minds? Is it possible that we are losing out, every day, on the powers which could be available to us to heal physical ailments and pyschological distress?

Why is the compelling evidence for past-life regression not more widely known? 

Read in this book how world-famous hypnotherapist Joe Keeton worked with thousands of volunteers to find the answers to these questions.

The Power of the Mind is hypnotherapist Joe Keeton’s account of his work in hypnosis, hypnotherapy and past life regression.

Joe, who died in 2003, was known all over the world for his skills as a hypnotist, and throughout his life he conducted thousands of sessions with people who came to him for help with physical and emotional traumas. In this book, he sets out many of his best-known cases, and presents a series of potential explanations for the parapsychology experiences which he relates. 

What secrets does the unconscious mind hold?

Joe’s hypnotherapy worked on many levels. For some patients, coming to him helped to release an unconscious psychological block which had caused problems throughout adult life. 

For others, the unconscious mind held an open door to allow the patient to enter a world it could not possibly imagine: a world where people long dead still lived.

Is it possible to access the lives of those who have lived before us?

What lies at the root of the extraordinary memories which so many members of the public revealed when under hypnosis with Joe? How is it possible for someone with no knowledge of a particular period of history to be able to impart the detailed memories of a person now long dead? Can it be true that the lives of those who have gone before us do not just end with death, but can live on in the memories of other people? Is reincarnation a reality?

‘Joe Keeton uses his vastly developed powers to treat, help and investigate an extraordinary variety of people. His work now demands formal study.’ World Medicine

Can hypnosis really be used to control the some of the body’s physical ailments?

In this book, Joe talks about how he helped thousands of people to face up to and then take control of physical symptoms which were holding them back in life. The truth is in the telling of their stories.

Read how one patient, Andrew Selby, used Joe’s hypnotic techiques to control the pain of a broken limb.

Read also how Joe met patients who were sent to him by the medical profession when all other avenues had failed.

If you are curious to know more about the workings of the mind and the memory it holds, and how we may all use the power of hypnosis to reach into ourselves to discover the strength to overcome many physical and emotional problems, then this book is for you.

Originally published in 1988, this new Kindle edition has been published in 2012 with a new Afterword by Joe’s widow, Monica. The focus on Joe’s work continues at
