The portion of Sensibility which feels the influences of the human nervaura, is the highest portion of the organ, where it connects with
Not only does the nervaura, direct from the brain convey such impressions of organic action, but almost any substance held for

While the nervaura of the human constitution (which is as distinctly perceptible to the sensitive as its caloric and electricity) is emitted from every portion of the surface of the head and body, the quality and quantity of that which is emitted from the inner surface of the hand, render it most available, and the application of the hand of any one who has a respectable amount of vital and mental energy, will produce a distinct local stimulation of functions wherever it may be applied upon the head or body.
