Thought for the Week … Sun Jul 25th …

Posted on July 24, 2010. Filed under: Personal Magnetism |

This Post is on Self Development – the smooth undulating tones and movements interspersed with bursts of  intensity – of speech and movement.

Nervous and Vocal Undulations Develop Intensity

The two great essentials of Personal Magnetism are Undulations and Purpose. Undulations are developed by practice and are a cultivated power. Adopt Undulations in all that you say or do.

Nervous and vocal undulations increase the power of Intensity.

Intensity is a quality that exists in the voice and in the entire nervous system. Intensity is fire. It burns in the nerves, in the brain and in the heart. No person can attain too much intensity. It is kept dormant when not needed.

Develop intensity by reciting intense selections from the works of the past. Use mental pictures to add power and better impress what you are reciting. Never discard this practice because of the exhilaration which followsb it.

Here is a Quote for developing Intensity. It is from the Play ‘Richelieu’. Soldiers have been sent to bring back a girl who has escaped from the King. Before she can reach the sanctuary of a Church, Richelieu gives her his protection. He tells the soldiers that she has gained safety because the country, which is mother to all, has given her sanctuary. The Sergeant says, “The country is the Kings”. Cardinal

Richelieu then responds thus.

“Aye, is it so?

Then wakes the power that in the age of iron burst forth to curb the great and raise the low.

Mark where she stands!

Around her form I draw the awful circle of our solemn Church.

Step but a foot within that holy ground and on the head,  yea, though it wore a crown, I shall call the curse of Rome!”

Memorize and recite this with intense feeling. Use mental pictures to increase the intensity. Avoid physical movement. Dead Stillness increases the power of intensity.

 

 

 

Intensity
