Huna Bulletin 90
November 15, 1952
THE “WALL” STILL HOLDS
HRA S.H. of Glendale, Calif., added to my faith and pleasure with a letter of Nov. 6th, in which she writes, “I wish to report that my son-in-law has today returned safe and sound from Korea. His plane and that of his wing man were the only two in the squadron which did not get a single bullet hole. I wish to thank with all my heart the TMHG group which has been working on the “Wall of Protection.” It evidently is very potent action and so very much worthwhile. Our group here still has Breakfast Meetings – and Huna still works for us. Thanks again.”
We still have a perfect score on our “Wall” boys. The visualized “Wall of Protection” and the prayer to establish, strengthen and keep it around each of them, is made in the TMHG just after the gift of mana to na Aumakua through the “braided cord” – this mana is for their use as they see fit – and following the visualization and prayer for world peace and progression into the New Day of Hurtlessness, Helpfulness and Enlightenment. The signature, in ink, of your fighting man or one near to you for whom you will work faithfully, may be sent in for the TMHG at any time. A report on such men is to be sent in whenever there is a change in their service, such as leaving any part of the service that may endanger them. If any of you plan an auto trip of some length and wish such prayer protection as can be had through the TMHG, let me have the request and dates and the signatures of those making the trip a few days before the start.
THE MATCH BOX EXPERIMENT WORKS well for her, reports HRA Mrs. H.G.G, of Long Beach, California, who is one of our brand new HRAs and who is reading and testing out the things laid out for training and testing in the early Bulletins. She has followed the suggestion that one take several of the small match boxes to be had at the grocers, remove the matches and use the boxes instead of the pill boxes, which are more difficult to come by.
DEAR MR. LONG,
I am so excited at this point I’m not sure my letter will make good sense. However, I’ll risk it, knowing you have been through a similar experience! Tonight is the third time I’ve tried the match box experiment, and I’ve hit it four out of four! “George” seemed to tell me what was in the boxes, then I checked on each one again with “George” and the pendulum before opening the boxes. The first and second times I tried the experiment I was only able to get what was in the first box; the other three I couldn’t get straight with either “George” or the pendulum. You will know how I feel this evening, having got all four correct.
Yes, the Aunihipili can be trained, rapidly with some of us, more slowly with others. It is a good idea to try George on the boxes now and then to see if he is in good working [order].
Election predictions made by the use of the pendulum (despite my recent warning that prediction of the future was most uncertain with the pendulum) were attempted. Three pendulum tests made by Democrat HRAs who hoped Adlai would win; all came up with “yes” swings. Two tests made by Republican HRAs hoping that Ike would win, got “yes” for him, and one got correct answers on a number of other favored candidates who later won. Cigbo, who was not very well briefed as to what it was all about, suspended his pendulum from his tail and in due time voiced the somber prediction, “pendulum Harry is the one who is going to be ejected.” Later on, after consulting with Mr. Thomas Kat, in our alley, he was able to explain everything. He said, “It is very clear and unmistakable that only Republican Uncles and Aunties can predick with a pennylum, anyway, in this ejection.” I hurried out to consult Mr. Thomas Kat myself to get the straight of the matter, and he issued the following sage dictum. “Georges are always the same as the people that owns them. They wasn’t trying to predick. They just wanted to cast their votes.” If any of you got a pendulum prediction in this matter which was contrary to your personal hopes, will you kindly let me know so I can stand corrected on a blanket agreement with Mr. Kat?
SCRYING ALSO MISSED for a good Democrat HRA who allowed a full five minutes to get himself subconsciously neutral before looking into his glass to see who would win. An image formed and he saw a plane land and Adlai get off, soft dark hat and all. He took that to be the answer.
A TRANCE PREDICTION was obtained last December on the 16th (’51) by HRAs Hal and Mary Falvey of Chicago. Larry did the trance prediction, helped into trance by light suggestion. No spirit influence so far as I know. Their letter, sent to the Study at that time, is in the files and can now be checked. She had worked to get a telepathic contact with their son. When Mary was ready, Hal asked, “How’s son doing at the tank training camp?” Mary replied:
“Having a fine time. He likes it. (Pause) The fighting is about over anyway … 2-mile neutral strip in Korea … nobody’s to enter it but both sides do, though not to fight. (Pause) Elections coming. Same two miles of neutral zone in other countries. In about 18 months the lid blows off. Strange thing, we have no president then, not as we have now. A deputy or Premier runs things; the President is told he wasn’t elected to handle things as they have developed, and he is quite agreeable. It is all quite legal; it’s still the same U.S.A. Mr. Taft is in there somewhere, and in complete agreement. The Premier, or whatever he is, is a tall, dark-haired, balding square-faced man. Thus we get in there and really whip the situation.”
Hal wrote on October 28th, commenting on the matter and giving a later prediction. I quote:
“Note the ‘neutral strips,’ which have not only characterized the Korean treaty zone but, recently, East-West Europe. Acheson seemed to think last December 16th, that the Korean situation might blow up at any minute, but Mary did not, and it hasn’t.
“We were curious about Taft at the time; the prediction has him ‘in there,’ as well he might be, but not as President. We think that general predictions deal not only with ultimate events but the minds shaping them; the minds can shift as things develop, but the event will happen. Thus the time intervals can change, between now and the event, but the event has to happen ultimately. Predictions for individuals can be much more precise, we find, but even these, when dependent on other minds somehow involved, can happen sooner or later than predicted.
“All business predictions, including Mary’s, are that business will probably be good, indefinitely. A military government, the logical one for all-out war, might change that, though it would not necessarily stop the making or buying of goods.
“(Later) I asked Mary in trance just now about business in general. This is her first try at predicting in exactly this way. She says: ‘Good business for the next two years except for a slight, short dip next March, and expect trouble from the Russians next June’ — tho’ this evidently does not affect business. Says we get more military participation in government by next August.”
COMMENT: Our thanks for this interesting material, Hal and Mary. The letters go into the files for later checks. This type of prediction, with good documentation, is what we need. I can think of only one tall, dark, balding man at the moment who might take over in conjunction with Senator Taft in a war emergency, and this is General MacArthur. General Ike is not “dark,” but he is “in there” now and it may have been his shadow cast ahead that was seen.
OUR ASTROLOGERS ALSO PREDICTED, and one of our best in HRA circles comments in a recent note, “I sure thought that Saturn on Ike’s sun would be likely to do him considerable blocking, especially as old Saturn seemed to be favoring Adlai. Mr. Clancy, who publishes an astrology magazine was sure Ike would miss being elected, and some time ago, as reported in the Bulletin, another of our HRAs had checked the stars and decided that only Harry had stars good enough to win an election – this was before the conventions and she had checked on Taft as the main opposing entry. I tried for a dream of the future to see what I could get just before the election and dreamed I came out of a hut where men had gathered around a fire. Outside it was very cold and I stood on the top of a smooth, round hill top facing a long steep slope covered with ice. Taking a hand sled, I flattened myself on it and began to slide down, faster and faster, suddenly realizing that I could not stop, that I had forgotten to dress warmly, and that there was now no turning around. Ahead was a vast lake with spots of open water which I feared I might slide into, but I managed by inches to avoid them. Awakening, I asked my George for the meaning of the dream, and got the flash “slide.” I thought that one over and suddenly got the symbol. George had given me the nearest he could to a “landslide,” but had failed to make it understood which candidate it was to be for. Never having seen a landslide, but knowing about sled slides, he did his best to get at least that part of the idea across. The water and ice were clear in the dream, so I take it things will be tricky ahead of us, but that we will manage one way or another to keep from falling in.
A THREE-TIME WINNER of the “Pegleg Liars’ Contest”
The winner at the convention of mining men and prospectors held in the desert country recently, is our HRA Howard Clark. He tried to keep quiet to give the others a chance this year, but they made him get up and tell one, and, naturally, won the prize. Here’s his yarn.
“I was slipping on a ‘slichenslide’ surface toward a vast chasm, when I saw that I was nearing a very small crack in the rock. I quickly seized my trusty grubstake and drove it into the crack, and held on. My grubstake was pretty small in them days.”
In his letter, in addition to the story, there was, as usual, much interesting information and comment. He writes, “I was much interested in Bulletin 89 and the report of the man of the Eidetics Foundation – as on page 3 – saying that they had found such things as demons. Recently I read a most amazing book dating from the 1880 period, edited by Emma Hardinge Britten, and covering the life of a gifted psychic. He was terrified in localities by apparent ‘demons’ in the shape of ‘elementals’ – immature forms of life in nature, forms and shapes in partial development, utterly without an idea of anything but mischief, torment, terror, etc. These were visible to his psychic sight and often terrified his horse, giving rise to accounts of ‘haunted’ areas in the back country of Britain 100 years ago.”
Incidentally, the story of the lost mine discovered by Pegleg Smith, years ago, so HRA Clark and others tell me, is one of the best authenticated of the many such tales. The old prospector turned up after a prospecting trip in a part of the South West that is very broken and full of confusing jumbles of hills, canyons and washes. He reported that he had become lost, had come out on the top of a hill, and had been amazed to find the ground there strewn with large gold nuggets. (Go away, Cigbo! Stop trying to read over my shoulder!) To prove his story he had his pockets filled with the nuggets. The spot was never found again, although it has been searched for time and again and although several men have lost their lives in the maze of the desert in which the discovery was made.
Dr. Brunler hoped to be able by map dowsing with a pendulum, to locate some of the lost mines or buried treasure, and he and his friends made many long trips into far places to see what might be found at places marked on the map during the dowsing tests. One very promising spot marked on the map was investigated, and when the party arrived at the far place which had been indicated – it was at the end of a desert road which was hardly more than a track in the desert – the gold was there, and no question about it. The only catch was that someone else had found it first and that a mine was in full operation there. Pendulums and radionics instruments used in dowsing for gold, may one day turn up Pegleg’s mine. (Cigbo says that if any HRA should find it, to remember that he has – right now – put dibs on a nice big nugget for his cigar box.) If the lesson learned by the HRA experience with the pendulum in predicting the election is worth anything, it should warn us that when we use the pendulum to dowse for gold, we had better make certain that George is not all loaded up and over balanced with the hope and expectation of finding gold. I have a pet theory that I want to try out some day when I can find a good map dowser and a spare few hours. I would give the dowser a “sample” to hold while he used his pendulum. The sample would be natural gold – a small nugget, if I could get one for love or money, or borrow one. It would be wrapped in something so that the dowser would not know what he was dowsing for, and all precautions would be taken against the dowser being told that if he found the Pegleg mine on the map, he would be cut in on the deal in a large way. Of course, I have still to find a way to keep his George from finding out what was in the “sample” – and at the same time to recognize the substance of the gold so he could go in aka body to search for the stuff. Know a good dowser who never saw a nugget or native gold in the rocks?
MORE ABOUT E-THERAPY
As explained by HRA A.L. Kitselman, its originator, in response to Bulletin 89 touching on his work and the general field of Dianetics. Here is his letter:
“I am afraid I didn’t make things very clear to you on my last visit. The new therapy, ES or E-Suggestion, is an E-plus therapy and not a new form of E-Therapy. E-Therapy itself is simply opening the mind, heart and body to therapy by the Aumakua, and it is not, in itself, a method or ‘technique.’ Nor would I have any idea how to change or revise E-Therapy, since I have never known how to do E-Therapy in the first place. It is therapy done by ‘E’ – the Aumakua.
“Everyone who has called upon the Aumakua for help has been engaging in E-Therapy – to the extent that the mind, heart and body are willing to manifest whatever the Aumakua directs. There is nothing ‘new’ about this and I don’t see how there can be anything ‘old’ about it, either. So do not expect any changes in Aumakua.
“On the other hand, the Aumakua manifests in their cases with only about two-thirds of the population. In one-third of the people, the Aunihipili (low self of Huna) is distorted with some form of block. ES and other E-plus methods are ways of operating on the Aunihipili so that the manifestations of the Aumakua will no longer be blocked. These are ‘methods,’ and they come and go, but Aumakua-Therapy itself is timeless.
“Also, on behalf of Mr. Hubbard and myself, I must ask you not to speak of E-Therapy as a form of Dianetics. Both he and I – he first – have emphatically stated that E-Therapy is not Dianetics. In the language of SSBM, E-Therapy is Aumakua Therapy, whereas Dianetics is Auhane therapy. That is to say that Dianetic techniques and procedures are directed and controlled by the conscious mind of the auditor, the pre-clear, or of both, whereas E-Therapy is controlled only by the Aumakua of the observer, or of the transient, or of both. That is quite a difference.
“In reference to Mr. Johnson’s communication, he says that early Dianetic auditing produced ‘only a couple or so people who ever reached what they thought was a state of MEST clear.’ I don’t know where this statement came from, but when I was Executive Officer of the Hubbard Foundation in Honolulu, we had it straight from headquarters that fifty ‘clears’ had been produced before September of 1950, and one of them was put in charge of our branch of the Foundation. It is so easy to make claims. I have met most of the leading lights in both Dianetics and E-Therapy, and it is my sad duty to report that I do not know of any ‘clears’ produced by revery therapy alone, whether by Dianetics, psychotherapy, E-Therapy or hypno-therapy. Good ‘releases’ may be so produced, but stable clears are produced only by the age-old techniques of disidentifying such as are found in the teachings of Kapila, Krishna, Lao Tzu, Buddha, Christ, and Krishnamurti. I know a number of such clears, but they were not produced by revery-therapy.
“I have an E-Meter and have done much work with it, but it seems curious to me that the 1500 or so na Aumakua whom I have watched at work – and many of whom I have talked to – have not, to date, seen fit to expound to me any of the extraordinarily exciting revelations about the ‘ARSCLYANS,’ etc. I guess I’m just not one of the favored few.
“There is a voice within me – a demon circuit, maybe? or an injected entity? – which keeps suggesting that Mr. Hubbard is a reincarnation of Madame Blavatsky. Of course, I keep saying, ‘Preposterous! Go back where you came from, foul imp!’ but the voice answers, ‘Just look at the facts. Both taught former lives, different races of beings, planetary incarnations, exaltation of super-beings; both complained of being persecuted and misunderstood; both received and dispensed revelations; both were world-travelers; both were disarmingly candid in evaluating their own importance, and both followed the same pattern of professional conduct.’ Can anyone free me from this obsession?”
(Signed) A.L. Kitselman
Comment: As they say cautiously in the magazines and on the radio, the opinions of the writers of letters to this Bulletin are not necessarily those of the Bulletin or its editor. I would hate to have Madame Blavatsky rise from the grave to sue, or Dr. Hubbard arrive from Arizona for the same purpose.
THE SUCCESSFUL USE OF HUNA
The successful use of Huna was reported in a letter of October 10th by HRA H.B.D. of Evanston, Ill. I quote:
“About a month ago the 17-year old son of some good friends of ours was stricken with polio, arms, legs and neck paralyzed. I heard about it the second day and decided to include a request for his recovery in my prayer. The very instant that I mentioned his name in my prayer I got a powerful tingle all over, a charge of mana going places. This for 5 or 6 consecutive days, then no more. Upon inquiry I found out that he was over the hump and on the way to recovery. For a week his condition had been critical and the doctor didn’t know which way it would turn. Two weeks later he was about 100% recovered and took part in a sailboat race.
“This would seem to indicate that the Aumakua accepts mana only as long as there is need for it for use in a worthy cause. If this line of reasoning holds water, then there must have been a terrific need for the mana I offered one evening about three weeks ago during the DEG period. I got a terrific tingle all over for about five minutes. It left me groggy for a while. The only request I made in that prayer was that I might help with whatever cause you were praying for at the time. It might have been an emergency in the Wall of Protection.
“Aside from this, I have kept down the aches and pains of my wife, but have had to repeat treatment every three or four weeks. We can’t seem to get to the cause of her troubles. I no longer transfer her aches to myself. I include in my prayer the request that I be permitted to radiate off harmlessly any off-key vibrations I may have picked up, into infinite space. This seems to work for me.
“About two months ago I had an accident – backed accidentally into the hot exhaust pipe on my boat with my bare back and got a burn of about 25 square inches, about half of it second degree and a little of it third degree. I willed a charge of mana to go to work on the burn and in approximately two minutes all pain was gone. I used no dressing. The next morning the blisters were torn open and it was quite a mess, so I decided to try autosuggestion that there should be no infection … and there was none, in spite of considerable irritation while driving my car, and while sleeping on it at night.
“Ten days later it was healed perfectly, leaving no scars. In the past, ruptured blisters frequently became infected when not dressed and took longer to heal.
“In the past I have been bothered with nose bleeds which would last from ten to thirty minutes. Lately I have willed a charge of mana to stop the bleeding and, so far, it has always stopped it in from ten to fifteen seconds. Once I tried faith alone, and told myself that with the help of the Aumakua this could stop instantly, and I got a tingle and it stopped right then.
“In Bulletin 61, page 7, you tell of the spirit kahuna who said ‘Think only good, good, good, and some day you will see a big white light, Once in her life, my wife has seen that kind of an intense white light. Her sisters were with her at the time, but did not see it. They thought she must have been dreaming.
“In Bulletin 64, page 4, I am again with you 100%. I, too, want to know WHY, very much so. If this leads to the seventh deed of Maui, so be it. Before I read your book I was a complete materialist, never went to church, don’t now – can’t swallow the dogmatism – but man needs religion, and at long last the study of Huna gives it to me. It makes sense and lets me hope that I may yet get guidance from the Aumakua, come hell or high water – or even conditions such as described in the BSRA release, ‘LAST DAYS.’ It may be very late.
“Meanwhile the study of Huna is to me a spiritual anchor to windward [and] much needed. It is the most interesting and the most worthwhile study that I have ever undertaken, but because my psychic ability, if any, seems to be very nearly nil, it will probably never be much more than just a study with me.”
Comment: Many thanks for such a good report, H.B.D., and for trying out things as you get into the Huna studies. Huna is to be put to use as well as to be used as material about which to speculate. Your experience of finding at times that the mana moves in you greatly, with much tingling, is a very familiar one to me, as is the use of so much mana at times that I have suddenly awakened, the TMHG letter box still in my hands, to find that I had either blacked out or fallen asleep when the mana supply gave out. I agree that this gives every evidence of being the indication of a time of emergency when na Aumakua have very important work to do on the dense earth level and are only too pleased to have a place where mana can be obtained for what they have to do. We may serve better than we know. In any event, I have yet to feel more than a momentary lack of vital force after such an experience. Often there is a fine uplifted feeling after strong tingling actions have stopped.
THE PAMPHLET, “PROJECTION OF THE MIND”
This pamphlet, and the small globes made of light blue glass, which HRA Walter Bissel-Smith (Am. Gas & Electric, 30 Church St., New York 8, N.Y.) made available not long ago to HRAs who wished to test his system of “Mental Projection,” have resulted in interesting reports. Letters offering these items for those who wished to test the method were sent to 34 HRAs listed in the Huna Directory sheets. Seven did not reply. Five said ‘no,” and twenty-two agreed to make tests and were sent the literature explaining it and a globe. HRA Bissel-Smith received a number of interesting reports on results, among them one from George and Helen Sandwith who ran tests in Suva. Fiji, down in the South Pacific, where they are hard at work.
I have been happy to have a copy of the report to read and pass on:
“Your generosity in sending the glass spheres and pamphlet is much appreciated … Helen, my wife, saw a thin mist and shapes trying to form for several days, then, suddenly, one day she saw a beautiful Polynesian girl, her back turned toward her, sitting under a tree with her lap full of flowers. She says the coloring was superb – like a tropical sunset, and the golden skin of the girl gleaming.
“Two nights later she saw a herd of small, light brown humped native cattle race past, their coats shining and radiating. Behind them stood a grove of palms of a kind she said she had not seen before. A few days later on, when we were driving up country, she exclaimed, ‘There are the palms I saw in my vision!’ They were a Fijian type that I have never seen elsewhere.
“On one occasion I found myself looking down a street in Suva. The road was dusty and a herd of dark humped cattle were passing along it. I get better results not using the sphere, but imagining it, or using the idea behind it. I find that I am in closer touch with the Entities of our ikons and can converse with one of them far more easily than in the past. The idea of the glass sphere was emphasized for us both recently when we were initiated as associates of a Hindu Fire-Walkers’ temple. The High Priest made the mark on our foreheads of a third eye with yellow ochre. Incidentally, our fire-walking friends say they can see the goddess, Kali, walking about the inner sanctum of the temple. Her power certainly can be felt! I have also seen picture writing on the wall at night without a sphere and with my eyes open.
Very kind regards from us both. We hope to learn a lot about Fijian Sacred Stones using your methods.”
August 26, 1952 (Signed) George Sandwith
The Sandwiths have just spent some time in Samoa and have sent a fine report on the sacred stones there, together with a most interesting set of pictures, three enlargements of which await pendulum tests as well as Aurameter investigation for radiations. Fine work in the field and much appreciated by all of us, I am sure.

ABOUT BRUNLER-BOVIS BIOMETER SUPPLY
I have had many recent inquires, [and] I can only say that at present these are not available. When Dr. Brunler was alive, he had a few made up for his students who had taken the $200 course in the use of the instruments. The price of the instruments probably ran as high as $500 each. The Bovis Biometer [is] not made now.
