Practical Psychomancy and Crystal Gazing by William Walker Atkinson Unabridged Audiobook || EP 130

William Walker Atkinson (December 5, 1862 – November 22, 1932) was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement. He is the author of the pseudonymous works attributed to Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka.

He wrote an estimated 100 books, all in the last 30 years of his life. He was mentioned in past editions of Who’s Who in America, in Religious Leaders of America, and in several[quantify] similar publications. His works have remained in print more or less continuously since 1900.

He is considered by many the father of the law of attraction, being one of the very first authors to ever mention it in a book. His writing is still fresh and relevant to today with deep methaphysical knowledge and explorations.

His book Practical Psychomancy and Crystal Gazing was published in 1908.

“New Thought” adherents at the turn of the 20th century vehemently believed they could tap into latent and mysterious mental powers, and one of the most influential thinkers of this early “New Age” philosophy offers here, in this delightfully weird 1908 work, a crash course in this benign and useful magic. You’ll discover how to see through solid objects, how to diagnose hidden disease, how to peek into a person’s secret history, how to travel by astral projection, how to see into the past, and more!

For such a small book, this is packed with a lot of great information, some of the practical some of that informative but all of it useful. It is divided into easy to read chapters dedicated to the different skills and clarifies terminologies.

We are adding this to the reality revolution pantheon because it is an early exploration on how to explore the space of variations or the alternative space.

Welcome to the reality revolution. I’m your host Brian Scott, and today I’ll be narrating an incredible book called practical psycho Mancy and crystal gazing by William Walker Atkinson. It’s a course lesson on S on the psychic phenomenon of distance sensing, clairvoyance, psychometry, crystal gazing, et cetera. This book was written in 1908 and is an incredible exploration of something called [inaudible] and it discusses everything from astral projection to the Akashic records, exploring dreams to understand the alternative space or something similar to it. There is a lot of discussion of the Akashic records and it’s a fascinating exploration of a certain kind of metaphysical science that is not discussed a lot and is very, very interesting. Okay. William Walker Atkinson is a super fascinating writer. When you go and read his bio on Wikipedia and if you’ve read any of his books, he’s as good as the Vadim Zealand’s that we see now. He wrote over a hundred books, so the story goes is he’s an attorney in like New Jersey and he’s pretty popular but super stressed out and then something happens and he has complete physical, mental breakdown. Total financial disaster loses everything. And then this is like a in the, in the eighties sometime around there and he found a particular application of using yoga, mental techniques to restore his health and found material prosperity. And so when you read his books, some of them are pretty advanced and it’s interesting, he writes very good detailed analysis of different yoga principles and Hinduism. He even changes his name and writes under several names because back then with this kind of stuff, people weren’t gonna it. You may, you didn’t even want to put your own name on it. You might get made fun of or chastised. So he wrote under the name Yogi, Rama chakra Rocca and also under a French name, the wrong Domo. So that um, and some of these books are great. They’re, they’re about concentration and the mind and using willpower. But this particular book, I just wanted to bring it into the realm of the reality revolution and share it with you so that you could get some of the ideas out of it. It’s, it’s simple and fast. And it discusses everything from using crystal balls, crystal gazing to accessing the Akashic records, looking at dreams. It has some exercises and techniques. It talks about the aura and the astral tube and psychometry and astral projection. And this is written in 1908 and this is stuff that I’m talking about today. So why not go back to one of the masters and see what he had to say. So once again, practical psycho Mancy and crystal gazing by William Walker Atkinson, a course of lessons on the psychic phenomena of distance sensing, clairvoyance, psychometry, crystal gazing, et cetera. [inaudible] so if you’d like to learn how to read your dreams, read the future astral project, travel outside of your body, then listen up because this is completely fascinating. [inaudible] lesson one, the nature of psycho Mancy the term psycho Mancy pronounced sigh co man C is derived from two Greek words. The first psycho meaning the soul, the mind, the understanding, and generally used to indicate psychic or unusual powers of the soul or mind. The second word, Mancy meaning to divine, to foresee or for know to detect secret things and in a cult parlance to sense or to receive impressions by the astral senses. So the word as we use it may be said to mean psychic sensing. And in this work will be so used. The word psycho Mansur means one practicing psycho Mancy. And the word psycho mantic means relating to psycho Mansi [inaudible]. The word clairvoyance is frequently used by people to designate some of the phases of psycho Mansie. But strictly speaking, this is incorrect when used in this sense the true occult meaning of the word clairvoyance being transcendental vision or the perception of beings on another plane of existence, the seeing of disembodied souls, elementals, et cetera. And so in this work we shall consider the true phenomena of clairvoyance as distinct from that of psycho Mancy. In this work, we shall regard as the true phenomena of psycho Mancy, all the various phenomena known as psychometry, crystal gazing, perceiving distance scenes, a perception of past events and indication of future events either in the full waking state, the state of reverie or the state of dreams. And so this work we’ll examine, consider and explain the various phases of phenomena above indicated. In short, the phenomena of sensing objects by means of astral senses omitting the phenomena of clairvoyance or seeing disembodied souls which we regard as belonging to a different phase of the general subject and which require special consideration and examination. The majority of works upon bees lines begin by an elaborate attempt to prove the reality of the phenomenon in question, but we shall not fall into this error for such. We regard it the time for the necessity of such proof is past. The records of the societies for psychical research are full of proofs and evidence which are full, complete and strong as ever required by any court to hang or clear a man. And the bookshelves of the libraries are full of other books giving like proof. And for that matter. This work is not written to convince people of the truth of this phenomenon. It is intended for those who have already convinced themselves of its reality, but who wish for specific information regarding its nature, manner of manifestation, et cetera, where we quote instances of the manifestation of some form of psycho mantic phenomena. In this we do so simply to illustrate the characteristics of some particular form of the phenomena and not as corroborative proof. This explanation we propose plunging right into the main subject itself. There have been many attempted explanations of and theories regarding the phenomena of psycho Mancy, some of which are more or less plausible. While others are quite visionary, wild and fantastic. In this work, we shall pay no attention to those more or less ingenious guesses of the theorists, but shall instead give you plainly, clearly and simply the time honored teachings of the advanced occultists, which teachings we believe to be the truth tested and tried by centuries of investigation and experiment. The astral senses. The occult teachings inform us that in addition to the five physical senses possessed by man vis, seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting, and smelling, each of which has its appropriate sense organ. Every individual is also possessed of five astral senses which form a part of what is known to occultists as the astral body. These astral senses, which are the astral counterparts of the five physical senses operate upon what a cult is, call the astral plane, which is next above the physical plane. In the seven fold scale of planes, just as do the physical senses operate upon the physical plane, so to the astral senses operate upon the astral plane by means of these astral senses. One may sense outside objects without the use of physical senses usually employed and is through this sensing by these astral senses that the phenomenon of psycho Mancy becomes possible by the employment of the astral sense of seeing. The psycho Mansour is able to perceive occurrences, scenes, et cetera, added distance sometimes almost incredibly far to see through solid objects to see records of past occurrences in Astro ether and to see future scenes thrown ahead in time like the shadows cast by material objects coming. Events cast their shadows before you’ve heard, but the use of the astral sense of hearing, he is able to sense sounds over immense distances and often after the passage of great periods of time for the astral vibrations continue for many years. The astral senses of taste and smell are seldom used, although are abundant proofs of their existence. The astral sense of feeling enables the psycho Mansour to become aware of certain occurrences on the astral plane and to perceive impressions, mental and otherwise that are being manifested at a distance. The astral sense of feeling may be explained as being rather a sense of awareness than a mere feeling in as much as the psycho Mansour through its channel becomes aware of certain occurrences other than by astral sight or hearing and yet, which is not feeling as the word is used on the physical plane. It may be well called sensing for want of a better name and manifests in a vague consciousness or awareness, but still we must not overlook the fact that there are many instances of true feeling on the astral plane, for instance, cases where the psycho Mansour actually feels the pain of another, which phenomenon is commonly known as sympathetic pains taking on the condition, et cetera, and which are well known to all investigators as belonging to the phenomena of the astral senses. But to understand the Astro senses, one must be made acquainted with the existence of what a cultist know as the astral body. There is no point in the occult teachings, better established, longer held, or more thoroughly proven than that of the existence of the astral body. This teaching of the ancient occultists is being corroborated by the experiments and investigations of the psychic researchers of the present day. The astral body belonging to every person is an exact counterpart of the perfect physical body of the person. It is composed of fine ethereal matter and is usually encased in the physical body. In ordinary cases, the detaching of the astral body from its physical counterpart, it’s accomplished only with great difficulty, but in the case of dreams, great mental stress and under certain conditions of a Colt development, the astral body may become detached and sent on long journeys traveling at a rate of speed greater than that of light waves. On these journeys. It is always connected with the physical body by a long fill me connecting link. If this link were to become broken, the person would die instantly, but this is an almost unheard of occurrence in the ordinary planes of action. The astral body exists a long time after the death of the physical body, but it disintegrates in time. It’s sometimes hovers around the resting place of the physical corpse and is mistaken for the spirit of the deceased person, although really it is merely a show or finer outer coating of the soul. The astral body of a dying person is often projected to the presence of friends and loved ones a few moments before the physical death. The phenomenon arising from the strong desire of the dying person to see and be seen. The astral body frequently travels from its physical counterpart in psycho mantic phenomenon and visits scenes far distant. They’re sensing what is occurring. It also leaves the body during what are known as psycho mantic dreams or under the influence of anesthetics or in some deeper phases of hypnosis when it’s visit strange scenes and places and often holds mental conversations with other astral bodies or else with disembodied entities. The jumbled and distorted recollections of these dreams are occasioned by the brain not having received perfect impressions transmitted to it by reason of lack of training, development, et cetera. The result being like a blurred or distorted photographic plate. In order to intelligently grasp the underlying principles of the phenomena of psycho Mancy and its allied subjects, you must familiarize yourself with the truth concerning the astral senses, which we have just stated. Unless you understand and accept this truth and fact, you will not be able to grasp the principles underlying the phenomenon in question, but will be lost in the quagmire of idle theories and fantastic explanation. Hazarded by investigators of psychic phenomena who have not made themselves acquainted with the occult teachings, which alone give the student an intelligent key to the mysteries of the astral plane. The three classes [inaudible], the phenomenon of psycho Mancy, et cetera, maybe grouped into three classes each being produced by its own special class because in either or all cases, the impressions are received by and through the astral senses, but there are three distinct ways in which and by which these impressions are received. These ways which we shall now proceed to consider in detail may be classified under the following terms, one sensing by the quickening of one astral senses sufficient to perceive more clearly the theoric vibrations or currents, the ORIC emanations of persons and things and similar phases of psycho Mancy but which does not include the power to sense occurrences happening in distant places, nor the power to sense the records of the past or to receive indications of the future to sensing by means of the astral tube erected in the ether by the operation of one’s will or desire and which acts as a psychic telescope or microscope with x-ray features which will be discussed in lesson four and three. Sensing by means of the actual of one’s own astral body to the distance scene which will be discussed in lesson seven. Claire audience clairaudience is a term sometimes used to indicate astral hearing. Some writers on this subject treat Clair audience as a separate class of phenomena, but we fail to see the distinction they make. It of course employs a different astral sense from that. Generally employed, but both are astral senses functioning. On the astral plane just as the physical senses of seeing and hearing function on the physical plane and more important, both forms of Astro sensing are subject to the same laws and rules. In other words, all that is said in the lessons of this book on the subject of psycho mantic vision holds equally true of Clare audience. Thus there may be simple, clear audience space, clear audience past time, clear audience, future time. Claire, your audience also clairaudience, psychometry clairaudience through crystal gazing. Psycho mantic vision is the employment of the astrocyte. While clairaudience is the employment of Astro hearing and in many cases of psycho mantic vision, there is an accompaniment of clear audience. While in others it may be missing. Likewise, psycho mantic vision usually accompanied clairaudience, although sometimes one may be able to hear Astro Lea, although no scene, you will notice that in many of the instances of psycho mantic vision related in this book, there is a mention of the person hearing words or sounds while seeing the vision. This, of course is clear audience lesson two, how to develop yourself [inaudible] passing to the actual practice. We desire to inform our students that the faculty of psycho Mancy lies dormant in every person that is the astral senses are present in everyone and the possibility of there being awakened into activity is always present. The different degrees of power observable in different persons depends chiefly upon the degree of development or unfoldment rather than upon the comparative strength of the faculties. In some persons of certain temperaments, the astral senses are very near the manifesting point at all times. Flashes of what are considered to be intuition. Premonitions are really manifestations of psycho Mancy in some phase. In the case of other persons. On the other hand, the Astro senses are almost atrophied, so merged and materialistic, thought and life are these people. The element of faith also plays an important point in this phenomenon as it does in all occult phenomena for that matter. That is to say that one’s belief tends to open up the latent powers and faculty in man while a corresponding disbelief tends to prevent the unfoldment or manifestation. There is very good psychological reason for this is all students have the subject well no belief and disbelief are too potent psychological factors on all planes of action occultists know and teach that the astral senses and faculties of the human race will unfold as the race Progress’s at which time that which we now call psycho mantic power will be a common possession of all persons just as the use of physical senses are to the race at the present time. In the meantime, there are persons who are not waiting for the evolution of the race are beginning to manifest this power in a greater or lesser degree depending much upon favorable circumstances, et cetera. There are many more persons in this stage of development than is generally realized. In fact, many persons manifesting psycho mantic power occasionally are apt to pass by the phenomenon as imagination and foolishness refusing to recognize its reality. Then again, many persons manifest the power during sleeping hours and dismiss the matter as merely a dream regarding this matter of the dawning of psycho Mansie. A well known authority writes as follows, students often ask how this psychic faculty will first be manifested in themselves, how they may know when they have reached the stage at which it’s first faint. Foreshadowings are beginning to be visible. Cases differ so widely that it is impossible to give to this question and answer that will be universally applicable. Some people begin by a plunge as it were and under some unusual stimulus become able just for to see some striking vision and very often in such a case because the experience does not repeat itself. The seer comes in time to believe that on that occasion he must have been the victim of hallucination. Others begin by becoming intermittently conscious of the brilliant colors and vibrations of the human aura. Others find themselves with increasing frequency, seeing and hearing something to which those around them are blind and deaf. Others again see faces, landscapes, or colored clouds floating before their eyes in the dark before they sink to rest. While perhaps the communist experience of all is that of those who begin to writ recollect with greater and greater clearness what they have seen and heard on other planes during sleep. Very many persons possess respectable degrees of simple psycho Mansie, varying from vague impressions to full manifestation of the faculty as described in these lessons. Such a person has intuitions, notions, pre sentiments and the faculty of getting ideas regarding other persons and things other than by the usual mental processes. Others manifest certain degrees of psychometric powers which develop rapidly by practice. Others find themselves possessing certain degrees of power of scrying through crystals, which power also may be developed by practice. The phases of time cycle, Mancy past and future and that UB space psycho Mancy and its higher degrees are far more rare and few persons possess them and still fewer persist in the practice until they develop it. They lacking the patience, persistence in application necessary. While it is very difficult to lay down a set of method of instructions in the development of psycho mantic power owing two reasons already given and because of the varying temperaments et cetera of students. If there is a possible, have a plan of giving general information which you followed. We’ll put the student upon the right path toward future development and this plan, we shall now proceed to give the students of this little book development methods concentration in the first place. The students should cultivate the faculty of concentration. That is the power to hold the attention upon any object for some time. Very few persons possess this power, although they may think they do. The best way to develop concentration is to practice on some familiar and common object such as a pencil book ornament. Take up the object and study it in detail, forcing the mind to examine and consider it in every part until every detail of the object has been observed and noted. Then lay the object, decide and a few hours after, pick it up again and repeat the process and you’ll be surprised to see how many points you’ve missed on the first trial. Repeat this until you feel that you’ve exhausted your object the next day. Take up another object and repeat the process. A drill of this kind will not only greatly develop the powers of perception, but will also strengthen your powers of concentration in a manner which will be of great value to you in a cult development visualizing. The second point of development for the student is the development of the faculty of visualization. In order to visualize, you must cultivate the faculty of forming mental pictures of distant scenes, places, people, et cetera, until you can summon them before you at-will, when you place yourself in the proper mental condition. Another plan is to place yourself in a comfortable position and then make a mental journey to some place that you’ve previously visited. Prepare for the journey and then mentally see yourself starting on your trip. Then seeing all the intermediate places in points, then arriving at your destination and visiting the points of interest, et cetera, and turning home. Then later to try to visit places that you’ve never seen in some way. This is not clairvoyance, but it is a training of the mental faculties for the exercise of the real power psychometry. After you have developed yourself along the lines of concentration and visualization. As stated above, you may begin to practice psychometry as follows, take a lock of hair or handkerchief or ribbon or ring belonging to some other person and then press it against your forehead, lightly closing your eyes and assuming a receptive and passive mental state then desire calmly that you psychometry buys the past history of the object. Do not be in too much of a hurry, but a weight calmly the impressions. After awhile you will begin to receive impressions concerning the person owning the object pressed against your forehead. [inaudible] we’ll form a mental picture of the person and will soon begin to receive impressions about his or her characteristics. You may practice with a number of objects at different times and will gradually develop this psychometric power by such practice and experiments. Remember that you are developing what is practically a new sense and must have perseverance and patience and educating and unfolding it. Another form of psychometric development is that of tracing the past history, surroundings, [inaudible], et cetera of metals, minerals. The process is identical to that just described. The mineral is pressed against the forehead with the eyes closed. The personal weights, the psychometric impression, some who have highly developed the faculty have been able to describe the veins of mineral metal and to give much valuable information regarding the same all arising from the psychic clue afforded by a sample of the rock, mineral, metal, et cetera. There are other cases of record in which underground streams of water have been discovered by psychometric tests by means of the clue given by a bit of earth stone from the surface in this as in other phase mentioned, practice practice practice is the summing up of the instruction regarding development [inaudible] crystal gazing. We consider the use of the crystal glass ball or other forms of what the ancients called the magic mirror to be the best plan of developing psycho mantic power. As we have already explained, this method serves to focus the concentrated desire will and thought of the person and thereby becomes the starting point for the astral tube of which we have frequently spoken in this work. The student becoming proficient in this class of phenomenon passes by easy, gradual and natural stages to the higher and more complex phases of the subject, the magic mirror of which the crystal is, but a form was used by the ancient occultists and developing the powers of their students and in all countries and in all ages. It has played a similar part in the process of developing psychic powers and serving as a focal point for the erection and operation of the astral tube in psycho Mansi and other forms of a cult and psychic phenomenon. At this point, we wish to tell you that there is no special virtue or magical properties or qualities in the crystal itself. It is merely an instrument for the astral vision just as the telescope microscope and other optical instruments are instruments employed in the phenomena of physical vision. It is true that the atomic and molecular characteristics of glass, crystal, et cetera tend to be produced the best results, but after all water inc may have been and may be similarly used. No, there is no special magic in the crystal itself, so do not allow yourself to fall into any superstition regarding its use. Various teachers use different forms of the crystal or substitutes for it. Some of the teachers whose patrons are among the wealthier classes of the community insist upon their pupils possessing Globes of pure crystal, insisting that the ladder alone gives the best results, but others who have pupils among people with shorter purses have found that there are pupils obtained just as good as results by the use of a ball of plain glass, which is inexpensive. Others have advocated the use of watch crystals laid over a piece of cloth, preferably velvet. Others have polished steel objects or pieces of polished metal of various kinds. A new silver coin for instance. Others still have used large drop of ink poured into a small dish. Others have had cups painted black on their inner surface into which they poured water and claimed to have obtained the finest results. All the old talk about magic ceremonies and incantations being necessary in manufacturing. The magic mirror is pure nonsense, which has grown around the scientific facts of the case as is so often the case do not be deceived by any such Tom Foolery. A number of persons prefer to gaze into the bright substance of a precious stone, so you see when we use the term crystal, we mean the student may make his choice of any or several of the above mentioned objects or that he or she may even a substitute, some other object of his own choosing, possessing the requisite power of reflection, but there are very few directions to be given in the use of the crystal. Read what we have to say at the conclusion of our lesson in crystal gazing in this book in lesson six the principal point insisted upon by nearly all teachers is that a placing the back of the glaze gazer to the light instead of having him face the light. The simple general direction is that the gazers should practice by himself at first in a quiet room sitting with his back toward the light with the crystal placed before him on a table on a piece of black cloth or other dark material, and then gays calmly at the crystal do not be afraid of winking and do not strain or tire the eyes. Some prefer making funnels of their hand and gazing through them as if they were opera glasses and we think this plan a very good one. Four it serves to shout out distracting light and sights. If you fail to see anything at first trial, don’t be discouraged but persevere. A number of trials are necessary in some cases while another’s wonderful results have been obtained at the first experiment, an English authority recommends that beginner’s failing to get direct results. Then try to visualize something that they have already seen or something familiar such as a chair, a ring, a face, and then turning to the crystal endeavor to reproduce it. There. It is claimed that this practice will often gradually lead to actually seeing in the crystal the first signs of the actual scene and the crystal comes in the form of a cloudiness or Milky mist in the crystal, which slowly resolves itself into a form or scene which appears gradually like the precipitation of a photograph upon a sensitive plate in the developing room. In some cases, the Misty cloud deepens into a black one from which the pictures appear. General advice in this work, we give you a comprehensive, although condensed account of the various phases of the phenomena of psycho Mansie together with a number of instances of typical manifestations by reading the following lessons. After having read the present one, the student will be able to gather much practical instruction on the subject of the manifestation of the power. He will be able to understand the nature and general workings of the phenomenon so that he undertakes the work of developing the power within himself. He will recognize the indication of his increasing power and unfolding faculties which otherwise would be Greek to him in order to get the very best results of instruction. In this line. The student would of course do well to secure some competent Instructure who could give him personal lessons, but the person who has the patience and perseverance to work through the thing out for himself as many before him have done will obtain results. Nonetheless valuable because they were worked for without assistance. We feel that we have given the students of this little work such an idea of general subject and its fundamental laws together with such general instruction in the methods of developing and manifesting the power that it will be one’s own fault if he fails to get at least a fair degree of success from his undertakings. Self-development. Along these lines, there is no Royal road to a cult or psychic power or magic word, which when once pronounced will provide an open Sesame to the doors of psycho Mancy and we would warn the student against persons who undertake to impart the secret upon the payment of a goodly sum of money. There is no secret to be so imparted. It is all a matter first of general understanding and then to practice and work to some it comes easier than to others, but even to such the higher degrees mean work. In practice we trust that we have given you food for thought and material for practice. The rest depends upon yourself. [inaudible] well, lesson three simple psycho Mansi. The phenomenon of psycho Mancy made be divided into three general classes depending upon the nature of the scene as follows. Number one simple psycho Mancy by which has meant the power of sensing by means of the astral senses in the degree of a mere quickening of the astral senses sufficiently to enable one to sense more clearly any if theoric vibrations or currents, the ORIC emanations of persons and things and similar phases of psycho mantic phenomenon, but which does not include the power to sense actual occurrences happening in distant places, nor the power to sense the records of the past or to receive indications of the future. Number two, space psycho by which is meant the power to sense distant scenes, persons or objects and number three time cycle Mancy by which is meant the power to sense objects, events, persons, et cetera in the records of the past and also the power to sense the indications of the future, the shadows of coming events. Simple psycho Mancy is very much more common than is generally supposed. Very many people are quite sensitive to impressions coming to them in this way which while akin to the impressions of telepathy, nevertheless belonged to the higher grade of psychic phenomenon known as psycho Mancy. It may be well to state here the difference between ordinary telepathic impressions and those of simple psycho Mancy. Many students are perplexed by the similarity between the two mentioned classes of phenomenon and we think it is advisable to set them straight regarding the matter at this point. As we have stated in our previous work in this series entitled practical mind reading, telepathy is occasioned by the passage of thought waves or currents passing from one brain to another just as past the waves of heat, light, electricity, et cetera. In telepathy. The brain of the transmitter sends forth the vibration waves or currents and the brain of the receiver registers the same receiving them by means of the pineal gland which acts in a manner closer resembling that of the receiving instrument in wireless to look graphy and telepathy. There is merely the sending and receiving of thought vibrations over the physical organs. But in simple psycho Mansie the person may and does receive the thought vibrations emanating from the mind of another but not over the physical channels as in telepathy but by means of the astral senses. In this lies the difference now and now it follows that the astral senses being far more keen and acute than the physical senses. The former will register vibrations and impressions far more readily than the louder and we’ll often register impressions that the physical senses take no account of. In this way. The person in whom the astral senses are even partially developed will receive impressions of the thoughts of others and that even the most acute mind reader will fail to notice as well as words actually spoken by the other person and ideas forming in the mind of the other person. Not yet expressed in active thought waves, but it should be added. The development of telepathic powers very frequently grow into a development of psycho mantic powers and so the former is one of the easiest paths to the louder and maybe used in developing clairvoyant power and in unfolding the astral senses. In this way, the person possessing even a moderate degree of psycho mantic power often feels the thoughts, ideas, emotions, and other mental States of the people around him and knows without any words being used just with the others are thinking and feeling. This is often perceived by merely the increased power to receive and register the thought vibrations, but in some cases the ability to sense the aura of the other person heighten the impression the aura. The majority of our readers are familiar with the fact that all persons and objects are surrounded by an emanation called an aura or egg shaped psychic emanation extending several feet around them. This aura is charged with the thought vibrations of the persons and is really the atmosphere that we feel surrounding people and by which we feel attracted or repelled as the case may be. The trained and developed psycho Mansour is able to see the colors by which the various emotions, thoughts, et cetera are indicated, but even when that degree of power is lacking, he may feel the general character of the various component parts of the person’s aura. While it is not our intention to go deeply into this matter of ORIC colors in this work. Still we think it well to indicate the same here by quoting from a well known authority on the subject who says as he looks at a person, he will see him surrounded by the luminous mist of the Astro aura flashing with all sorts of brilliant colors and constantly changing and Hugh and brilliancy with every variation of the person that thoughts and feelings he will see this aura flooded with the beautiful Rose color of pure affection, the rich blue of devotional feeling the hard Dole Brown of selfishness, the deep Scarlet of anger, the horrible lurid red of sensuality, the livid gray of fear, the black clouds of hatred and malice or any of the other hundred fold indications so easily to be read in it by a practice dye. And thus it will be impossible for any persons to conceal from him the real state of their feelings on any subject. Okay. But only a comparatively few are able to distinctly see these ORIC colors by reason of their lack of development along these special lines. But a great number of people are able to feel the subtle vibrations which give rise to these colors just as there are well authenticated cases of blind men and women being able to distinguish by the sense of feeling in touch the various colors which they’re blind eyes fail to see soar. Thousands of people able to feel the ORIC shades which their imperfectly developed clairvoyant vision fails to perceive in this connection. It is interesting to note that science informs us that the sense of feeling was the first developed of any of the physical senses. In fact, all the other senses are developments of an extensions of the original sense of feeling and there is also a close correspondence between this phenomena of the five physical senses and that of the astral senses. But there are other and perhaps more wonderful features of simple psycho Mancy. It is a well established scientific fact that nearly, if not indeed all objects are constantly emanating streams of radiant energy or streams of electrons as they are called by some the delicate instruments of science are able to and register some of the core vibrations of this energy. But the more delicate ones have so far escaped them. But the astral senses of the developed cycle, Mansour, register and record many of the finer vibrations. And in this way, many so-called miracles of a cultism are explained. Let us examine this phenomena. At this point, it becomes apparent to any student of the subject early in his investigations that the psycho Mansur is able to see things hidden by other objects and often surrounded by the densest matter. In other words, he’s able to see through solid objects to see through a brick wall to use the familiar phrase. Now this may seem almost incredible to one at the first mention of the subject, but when the skeptic’s attention is called to the fact that the x-rays and similar forms of energy recently discovered by science readily Pearce through solid objects and maybe actually seen by the eye, aided by the proper instruments or recorded on a photographic plate than the impossible feat of seeing through a brick wall becomes a very simple, understandable matter indeed, and in almost identical manner. The psycho Mansur sees through solid objects and the most solid material becomes transparent to his astral site. Defined streams or waves of energy constantly being emanated by. All objects which are invisible to the naked physical eye are registered and recorded by the Astro sense of sight, the cycle amounts or even by means of the comparatively elementary power of simple psycho Mansie is able to see what is going on in an adjoining room or other nearby place to read the contents of a sealed letter to describe the contents of a locked steel book or to read a chosen passage in a closed book to the developed and trained psycho Mansour. When he concentrates his power, the solid ground over which he is walking becomes transparent and he is able to see down into its depths to a considerable distance. In this way, he may see living underground creatures at work and play and to discover veins of mineral, coal, etc. Or underground streams of water. In these cases, the clairvoyants does not travel in the astral, but merely receives and perceives the subtle vibrations or streams of fine energy constantly being emanated by the objects. Some clairvoyants have developed certain other less common faculties of astrocyte which gives the telescopic and microscopic vision. In these cases, in addition to the main faculty of seeing things through solid coverings, the question will naturally arise in the mind of the student whether there is any limit to the depth open to the astrocyte of the psycho man. Sir, in this phase of the phenomena as for instance when he is looking into the solid earth, it may be urged that is objects at immense distances, underground emanate rays. Just as truly as do objects nearer the surface, then there should be no difference in the power of vision answering this question. We would say that the same objection and obstacle arises in this case as in the corresponding physical phenomenon such as the X rays. While a far distant objects emits res just as well as a nearby one, still there’s a loss of energy according to distance and the Astro sense like the physical sense fails to clearly register after a certain distance is attained. This distance varies in the case of different persons using their astral vision just as it does. In the case of different degrees of eyesight possessed by various persons, and then again, it must not be supposed that the earth becomes as clear as glass to the astral vision. On the contrary, it presents a similar appearance to that obtained when one is seeing through objects, through water or mist with the physical eye. One can see quite away through water or missed with the physical eye, but after a certain distance the impressions grow dim and finally fade from view. Of course, in the case of the erecting of the astral tube, better results may be obtained, but this phenomenon belongs to the class of space Sika Mansie. There is another power open to the psycho Mansour. Along the lines of simple psycho Mancy, we refer to the phenomena of seeing into the physical bodies of other people, examining the internal organs, diagnosing diseases, et cetera. Of course, in this case before the clairvoyant is able to correctly diagnose a disease, he must be acquainted with the nature of the organs and their appearance in their normal state so that he will recognize a disease condition when he sees it. One must need have an X Quinton’s with anatomy and physiology as well as possessing trained psycho mantic powers for this work. [inaudible] lesson four the astral tube [inaudible]. The term the astral tube is frequently met within the writings of occultists, but you will find very little more than a mention of it in many such works, the proverbial caution of the older riders having acted in the direction of preventing, they’re entering into a fuller description or explanation for fear of the information falling into improper hands. This will be more readily understood when we tell you that the astral tube is and may be used for classes of phenomena other than that of psycho Mancy, notably that of mental influencing, treating, which however forms no part of the present work but which will be discussed in future volume of the series to be called mental influence. Great. The astral plane is composed of an ethereal form of matter, very much rarer and finer than the matter of the physical plane, but matter nevertheless, and subject to fixed laws and conditions and just as it is possible to establish lines of force in the physical nature. So may corresponding lines of horse be established in astral matter. And this astral tube is really such a line of force. In other words, it is possible to set up and establish a line of force on the astral plane that will serve as a ready conductor of astral vibrations, currents, et cetera, and which affords a highly efficient channel of communication between objects far removed from each other in space. And this channel is actually created and used in a variety of forms of a cult phenomena, polarization. You have heard of polarity and polarization in connection with electrical phenomenon. Polarity is defined by Webster as that quality or condition of a body by virtue of which it exhibits opposite or contrast it properties or powers in opposite or contrasted parts or directions or a condition giving rise to a contrast of properties corresponding to a contrast of positions. And polarization is defined by the same authority as act of polarizing state of having polarity. Well. Then the process of erecting the astral tube is practically that of the polarization of the particles of astral matter by an effort of the human will set in motion by means of a strong desire or determination under certain conditions when the human will is directed toward a person or object, distant or close under the proper psychic conditions, it tends to polarize a path or channel through the Astro atmosphere toward the desired point which channel becomes at once an easy course of psychic communication for the transmission or receiving of psychic impressions or expressions as the case may be. And in the case of psycho Mancy and kindred phenomena, the astral senses of the person, even though his astral body be still within its physical counterpart or able to readily sense the impressions being manifested at a far distant point in space. The above mentioned channel of communication. The astral tube has not, of course the advantage of actual travel in the astral body and is besides effected by a certain astral happening such as the breaking up of the tube or an impairment of its efficiency by reason of some stronger astral current or channel, et cetera. For instance, when one considers the currents and cross currents constantly an operation on the astral plane, it will be seen how likely the above dimension interference is to happen. Though the Astro tube, the Astro senses actually sense the sites and often the sounds being manifested at a distance. Just as one may see distant sites through a telescope or hear distant sounds through a telephone for instance, it may also be used as a microscope as we shall see as we proceed. The student’s attention is especially directed toward the fact that in this form of phenomenon, the psycho Mansour remains within his physical body and does not travel in the Astro at all. He sees the distance scenes just as a man sees them through a telescope. His consciousness remains within his physical body. A well known writer on this subject has truly said the limitations resemble those of a man using a telescope on the physical plane. The experimenter for example, has a particular field of view which cannot be enlarged or altered. He is looking at his scene from a certain direction and he cannot suddenly turn it all around and see how it looks from the other side. If he has sufficient psychic energy to spare, he may drop altogether the telescope that he is using and manufacturer and entirely new one for himself, which will approach his objectively somewhat differently. But this is not a course at all likely to be adopted in practice, but it may be said the mere fact that he is using astrocyte ought to enable him to see it from all sides at once and so it would if he were using the site in the normal way upon an object, which is fairly near him within his astral reach as it were, but at a distance of hundreds or thousands of miles, the cases very different. Astral site gives us the advantage of an additional dimension. There is still such a thing as position in that dimension and it is naturally a potent factor in limiting the use of the powers of its plane, astral site when it’s cramped by being directed along what is practically a tube. It is limited very much as physical sight would be under similar circumstances though if possessed in perfection, it will continue to show even at that distance the auras and therefore all the emotions and most of the thoughts of the people under observation. The astral tube in connection with psycho Mancy is used in a variety of forms is often used unconsciously and Springs into existence spontaneously under the power of some strong emotion, desire or will. It is also observed in some cases of hypnotic phenomena in which the hypnotist uses his will to cause his subject to form an astral tube and then report his impressions. It is also used by the train psycho man sir, without the use of any starting point or focal center simply by the exercise of his trained developed and concentrated will, but it’s most familiar and common use is in connection with some object serving. As a starting point or focal center. The starting point or focal center above mentioned is generally either what is known as the associated object in the class of phenomenon, commonly known as psychometry or else a glass or crystal ball or similar polished reflecting surface and what is known as crystal gazing in the two next succeeding lessons, we shall consider these forms of phenomenon respectively. Lesson five psychometry the phenomenon commonly known as psychometry is but one phase of psycho Mancy or even may be said to be, but a method employed to bring into action. The astral senses. The psychometrician merely gets into rapport with the distance scene, a period of time or person or object by using some bit of physical materials associated with that seen time person, object, et cetera. In order to open up communications along the usual lines of psycho Mancy. This has been compared to the use of objects associated with the thing. In the case of memory. We all know how this site of some object will recall it once, memories of things long since forgotten to all appearances, but which memories have been merely stored away in the great storehouse of the mind to be recalled readily when the association is furnished, what association is in the case of memory. So is the material object presented as the associated object in psychometry, the occult teachings inform us that there is a psychic connection over existing between things once associated and that when we throw ourselves into the psychic current surrounding an object, we may readily follow the current back until we reach the associated object for which we seek on the astral plane. In the Akashic records lesson nine all memories are registered and recorded and if we have a good starting point, we may travel back until we find which we desire. In the same way the associated object furnishes us with a ready means of starting our astral tube into being and use. This is the secret of the use of the lock of hair, the bit of clothing, the piece of metal or mineral used by psychometrist. The well known authority on the subject has said concerning psychometry. It may well be asked how it is possible amid the bewildering confusion of these records of the past to find any particular picture when it is wanted. As a matter of fact, the untrained psychic usually cannot do so without some special link to put him in rapport with the subject required. Psychometry is an instance in point and it is quite probable that our ordinary memory is really only another present moment of the same idea. It seems as though there were sort of magnetic attachment or affinity between any particle of matter and the record which contains its history and affinity which enables it to act as a kind of conductor between that record and the faculties of anyone who can read it. For instance, I once brought from Stonehenge a tiny fragment of stone, not larger than a pins head and on putting this into an envelope and handing it to a psychometrician who had no idea what it was. She at once began to describe the wonderful ruin from which it came and the desolate country surrounding it and then went on to picture vividly what were evidently seen from an early history showing that the infant test animal fragment had been sufficient to put her into communication with the records connected with the spot from which it came. The scenes through which we pass in the course of our life seem to act in the same manner upon the cells of our brain. As did the history of Stonehenge upon the particle of stone. They establish a connection with those cells by means of which our mind is put in rapport with that particular portion of the records and so we remember what we have seen, the five methods, the method of psychometry may be employed in a number of ways among which are the following, all of which are subject many variations and combinations. One, locating a person by means of a lock of hair, article of clothing, handkerchief ribbon, piece of jewelry, bit of writing, et cetera. In this manner, not only may a good psychometrist locate the person, but will also be able to give an idea of his characteristics, habits, health, et cetera, to describing a person’s characteristics, past life, future, et cetera, by means of the rapport condition made possible by the person’s presence. Three, describing a purse, present distance seen by means of a bit of mineral plant or similar object once located at the place for describing the surrounding underground characteristics by means of a bit of mineral, et cetera, and five, getting into touch with the past history of an object or its surroundings by means of the object itself. For instance, a bullet from the battlefield may give the history of the battle a bit of ancient pottery, the characteristics and habits of the people who made or used it as well as the appearance of the land in which they dwell in all of these phases with their variations and combination. The student will see the operation of the phenomenon under the various heads as classified by us in the work. Each occurrence or manifestation will be found to fit into the class of simple, psycho Mansie space, sacraments,Z past time, psycho Mancy or future times Sika MNC referring also to lesson two for judge [inaudible] regarding development of psychometric power. Lesson six crystal gazing. There has been a great revival of interest in the subject of crystal gazing, particularly in England of late years and many interesting accounts have appeared in the papers and magazines regarding the results of the experiments, but the majority of the writers on the per subject persist in treating it as a thing separate and apart from other forms of psycho antsy. In fact, many of them ignore psycho Mancy altogether and are apparently under the impression that there is no connection between it and their favorite subject of crystal. This attitude is somewhat amusing to persons who have made a careful study of psychic phenomenon and who know that crystal gazing is not a distinct phenomena but is merely a method of bringing into action the psycho mantic faculties. In many respects. The crystal acts in a manner akin to that of associated object in psychometry, but there is one point of distinction which should not be overlooked by the student. The associated object gives to the psychometrist a starting point for the Astro tube and also serves to point the astral telescope if one may use the term in the right direction by reason of its affinity with the distance scene, but the crystal does not so act for it is not closely allied to Orrin sympathy with other things when used in the ordinary manner instead of being the islands of the telescope. It is really a magic mirror which is turned first this way and that and which reflects whatever comes within its field. Just as does any other mirror. The trained and developed psycho man sir, however, may direct his mirror to any desired point and may hold it there by means of a concentrated will. The favor with which crystal gazing meets with at the hands of beginners is due to the fact that it is the easiest method known by which astral vision may be awakened with the majority of people. The power may be awakened only by the aid of some physical object which may act as a starting point for the astral tube or as one writer as expressed at a convenient focus for the willpower. A number of objects may be so employed, but the crystal or glass ball is the best for the purpose because of the certain atomic and molecular rains. Rents which tend to promote manifestations of the psychic power and faculties. Crystal gazing as a method for inducing psychometric vision has been quite common among all peoples in all times. Not only the crystal, but many other objects are similarly used in Australia. The native priests use water in shining objects or in some cases flame in New Zealand, some of the natives use a drop of blood. The Fijians fill a hole with water and gaze into it. Some South American tribes use the Polish surface of a black zone. The American Indians used water in shining bits of flints or courts and so the story goes as Lang it people stare into a crystal ball, a cup, a mirror, a blot of ink in Egypt, in India, a drop of blood. The Mary’s son of New Zealand, a bowl of water, the American Indians, a pond Roman, an African, a water in a glass bowl, Fez, or almost any polished surface, et cetera. We quote a typical case of crystal gazing related by Mr. Andrew Lang. He says, I had given a glass ball to a young lady, miss bale, who had scarcely any success with it. She lent it to miss Leslie, who saw large square, old fashion red sofa covered with muslin, which she afterward found in the next country house. She visited ms Bailey’s brother. A young athlete, laughed at these experiments, took the ball into his study and came back looking a gash. He admitted that he had seen a vision. Somebody he knew under a lamp. He said he would discover during the week whether he saw a ride or not. This was at five 30 on a Sunday afternoon. On Tuesday, Mr. Bailey was at a dance in a town 40 miles from his home and met a Ms. Preston on Sunday. He said about half past five you were sitting under a standard lamp and address. I never saw you wear a blue blouse with a lace over the shoulders pouring out T for a man in blue surge whose back was towards me so that I only saw the tip of the mustache. Why the blinds must have been up, said Ms. Preston. I was at Dolby, said Ms. Bailey and he undeniably was stead. Relates the following experience with the crystal miss X upon looking into the crystal on two occasions as a test to see if she could see men when she was several miles off, saw not me, but a different friend of mine on each occasion. She had never seen either of my friends before but immediately identified them both on seeing them afterward at my office on one of the evenings on which we experimented in the vain attempt to photograph a double, I dined with Madame C and her friend at a neighboring restaurant as she glanced at the water bottle. Madame see saw picture beginning to form and looking at it from curiosity described with a considerable detail an elderly gentleman who she had never seen before and whom I did not in the least recognize from her description at the moment. Three hours afterwards when the sounds was over, Madam C entered the room and recognized mr Elliot of Messrs Elliot and fry as gentleman whom she had seen and described in the water bottle at the restaurant. On another occasion, the picture was less agreeable. It was an old man lying in dead in bed with someone weeping at his feet, but who it was or what it related to. No one knew. As a matter of general interest, we also quote mr [inaudible] remarks on crystal gazing, which agree with our own views and experience. He said there are some people who cannot look into an ordinary globular bottle without seeing pictures form themselves without any effort or will on their part. In the crystal globe, crystal gazing seems to be the least dangerous and most simple of all forms of experimenting. You simply look into a crystal globe the size of five shilling piece or water bottle, which is full of clear water and which is placed so that too much light does not fall upon it and simply look at it. You make no incantations and engage in no mumbo jumbo business. You simply look at it for two to three minutes taking care not to tire yourself, winking as much as you please, but fixing your thought upon whatever you see. Then if you have the faculty, the glass will cloud over with a Milky mist and in the center the image is gradually precipitated in just the same way as a photograph forms on the sensitive plate. Lesson seven astral projection. Okay. In our last three lessons, we considered that law, the class of psycho Mancy arising from the erection and employment of the astral tube. In the present lesson, we pass to a consideration of the third class of phenomena, namely that occasioned by the actual projection of one’s astral body to distant points. In this class of phenomena. The consciousness of the person does not remain within the physical organism, but is actually projected along with the astral body to the point being physically viewed or examined. This form of psycho Mansie is of course a higher degree of manifestation than the class previously described here. Physical consciousness is temporarily suspended perhaps for but a moment or so and the astral body containing the consciousness of the individual is projected to some point, perhaps far distant with the rapidity of thought, where it examines objects, they’re situated receiving sensations through and by means of the astral senses. This phenomena may arise while the person is in trance or sleep, et cetera, or else in a moment of abstraction when one is daydreaming in a Brown study or wrapped in thought as the familiar terms run. When he returns to his physical body, he comes to himself and what have you seen or heard to him like a daydream or fantasy, unless he retrained sear in which the two planes of consciousness will be closely related and almost continuous. Besides the more familiar phases of this class of phenomena, there are wonderful possibilities open for the developed cycle. Mansour along these lines as a leading writer on this subject has said concerning it. He is also the immense advantage of being able to take part as it were and the scenes which come before his eyes. If in addition he can learn how to materialize himself, he will be able to take part in physical events or conversations at a distance and to show himself to an absent friend at will. The trained experimenter. Along these lines as also the advantage of being able to search about on the astral plane for what he desires to find or locate, he’s able to direct his astral body to definite places either by means submit to finding one’s way on the physical plane or else by following up the psychic clue afforded by a piece of clothing, a lock of hair, piece of stone or some other object connected with the person or place desired by means of a higher form of psychometry. Of course the person whose powers are not so highly developed is not able to have such control over his astral body or to manifest such a degree of trained power. He’s like a child learning to walk. They’ll read, he is awkward and must learn to direct his movements. There are many degrees of power from the occasional spontaneous manifestations to those of the highly trained cultist who travel in the Astro even more easily than in the physical and with the same degree of certainty and control. The pages of reliable works on a cultism and psychic research are filled with illustrations and examples of cases along these lines in which the astral body of persons have traveled to distant scenes and reported currencies and scenes witnessed there sometimes materializing so as to be seen by the person in the places visited. We hear with mention a few of these cases in order to illustrate the principle. A well known example is that of the Philadelphian mentioned by the German writer, young stilling and quoted by some English writers. The man in question was a well known character, respected, have good reputation and steady habits. He had the reputation of possessing psycho mantic powers, which he sometimes manifested for the benefits of friends and others. He was once consulted by the wife of a sea captain whose husband was on a voyage to Europe and Africa and whose vessel had been long overdue and from whom no tidings had been received for a long time. The psycho Mansour listen to the story of the anxious and distressed wife and then excused himself from the room for a short time retiring into an adjoining room becoming alarmed at his continued absence from the room. The lady quietly opened the connecting door and peeped in the second room or much to her surprise and alarm. She saw the old man lying on a couch showing all the appearances of death. She waited in great alarm for a long time when you roused himself and returned to her. He told her the had visit her husband in a coffee house in London and gave her the reasons for his not having written, adding that he would soon were returned to Philadelphia. When the husband finally returned his wife question him regarding the matter and he informed her that the reason given by the psycho Mansur were correct in every detail upon being taken into the presence of the man. The old sea captain uttered an exclamation of surprise saying that he had seen the man on a certain day in a coffee house in London and that the man had told him that his wife was worried about him and that he had answered the man saying that he had been prevented from writing for certain reasons and that he was on the very Eve of sailing for America. He said that he had then lost the sight of the stranger. Suddenly WT stead relates to the case of a lady of his acquaintance who is spontaneously developed the power to travel in her astral body and to materialize the same. Unconsciously she became a source of great worry and distress to many of her friends. To whom she would pay unexpected and involuntary visits, frightening them out of their widths by the materialization of what they suppose must be the ghost of the lady whom they thought must’ve died. Suddenly, the occurrences, however, became so frequent that her friends at lasts became familiar with the nature of the appearances and viewed them with merely great interest in wonder. The English society for psychical research have several hundred well authenticated instances of such appearances in their published records. One of the well known cases is that of a gentleman described as S H B a member of the stock exchange and a man of considerable business. Note, he relates his story as follows, one Sunday night in November, 1881 I was in Kildare gardens when I willed very strongly that I would visit in the spirit two lady friends, the mrs V who are living three miles off in Hogarth road. I willed that I would, I should do this at one o’clock in the morning and having willed it. I went to sleep next Thursday when I first met my friends. The older lady told me, she woke up and saw my apparition advancing to her bedside. She screamed and woke her sister who also saw me. A signed statement of the two sisters accompanies this statement. Both ladies fixing the time at one o’clock and saying that mr B wore an evening dress again on December 1st, 1882 I was at South hall at half past nine I sat down to endeavor to fix my mind so strongly upon the interior of a house at cue where miss V and her sister lived that I seem to be actually in the house. I was conscious but was in a kind of mesmeric sleep. When I went to bed that night, I willed to be in the front bedroom of that house at cue at 12 and to make my presence felt by the inmates. Next day I went to cue miss V’s. Married sister told me without any prompting from me. She had seen me in the passage going from one room to another at half past nine o’clock and that at 12 when she was wide awake she saw me come to the front bedroom where she slept and take her hair, which is very long into my hand. She said I then took her hand and gazed into the Palm intently. She said, you need not look at the lines for, I never had any trouble. She then woke her sister. When msL told me this, I took out the entry that I had made the previous night and read it to mrs L is quite sure she was not dreaming. She had only seen me once before two years previously at a fancy ball. Again on March 22nd, 1884 I wrote to mr gurney of the psychical research telling him I was going to make my presence felt by miss V at 44 new Orleans square at midnight 10 days afterwards. I saw miss V when she voluntarily told me that on Saturday at midnight, she distinctly saw me when she was quite wide awake. We’ve related these accounts in order to show instances of the appearance of a materialized astral body, but we must remember that these cases of materialization are very rare as compared to the cases of astral projection without materialization in ordinary clairvoyance and yet the phenomenon is practically the same in both instances, leaving out the phase of materialization. In many instances, the individual actually travels in his astral body to the distance scene and their witnesses the events occurring. At that point there is a ghost within each one of us which under certain favorable conditions travels away from our physical body and sees things at far off points. Under certain conditions it materializes and is visible to others, but in the majority of cases it merely sees without being seen. The psycho Mansur in this phase of the phenomena actually travels from the location of the physical body to the other points desired and reports what he or she sees and hears. Their astral projection is frequently developed by faithful practice of and demonstration of the simpler forms of psycho Mancy. It is all a matter of successful steps of development. Lesson eight, space psycho Mansie. As we stated in previous lessons space psycho Mancy is the exercise of the faculty in the direction of perceiving far distance scenes, persons, objects, et cetera. Of course, there’s really an exercise of space psycho Mancy in some instances of simple cycle Manzi, but we make the distinction because in the case of objects seen by simple cycle Mancy at some little distance from the observer, the impression is received by means of the rays or vibrations from the objects themselves by means of the developed astral senses acting in a simple manner while in the case of space cycle Mansi in the technical sense of the term, the impression is received by means of either the erection of the astral tube or else by the actual projection of the consciousness in the astral body. The latter being an actual visiting of the scene. A little illustration may perhaps make clear the above distinction. Let us suppose a man on the physical plane with ordinary eyesight, such a man could not see an object beyond the average distance of vision and he would be like a person devoid of psycho mantic powers. Then let us suppose a man of extraordinary visual powers such as many hunters or seafaring men, such a one could see the things invisible to the first man and would thus resemble the person manifesting. Simple psycho Mansie then let us suppose a third man using a telescope. This man could see things that neither of the other two could perceive and he would thus resemble the person manifesting along the lines of space. Mancy by means of the astral tube. And finally let us suppose a fourth man who possessed magical wings, which would instantly transport him to the distance scene. Once he could view the objects personally and at close range. Well, this man would be like the person who is able to project his astral body and thus view the distance scenes at will and at short range without the difficulties attendant upon the use of the telescope like astral tube to see the object on any and all sides and from all points of view to get inside of it as well as outside the following. Interesting cases are quoted to illustrate the principle. Captain Yount of the Napa Valley, California had a peculiar experience while asleep. He had a remarkably clear vision in which appeared a band of emigrants perishing from cold and hunger amidst a mountain range. He noted particularly and in detail the scenery and appearance of the Canyon. He saw a huge perpendicular cliff of white rock and the emigrants cutting off what appeared to be the tops of trees arising from great drifts of snow. He even saw plainly the features of some of the party. He woke sorely distressed by the vividness and the nature of his dream for so he considered it to be, but by and by he fell asleep again and saw the scene repeated with equal distinctness. In the morning, he found that he could not get the dream out of his mind and he told it to some of his friends. One of the heroes of the story was an old Hunter who at once recognized the place, seen in the dream as a place across the Sierras, known as a point in the Carson Valley pass. So earnest was the old Hunter that captain he out and his friends organized a rescue party and set out with provisions, mules and blankets to seek the perishing immigrants not withstanding the ridicule of the public, the rescuers persisted in their search and finally about 150 miles distant in the Carson Valley pass, they found the scene as described by captain Yount and in the identical spot scene in the dream were found the party of immigrants that surviving members of whom were rescued and brought over the mountain. Another interesting account is given in the reports of the society for psychical research of England. It relates that an English lady, mr Broughton, awoke one night in 1844 and aroused her husband telling him that she had a strange vision of a scene and in France. She stated that she had seen a broken down carriage, evidently wrecked in an accident and a crowd gathered around the figure of a man whose body was then raised and carried into a nearby house. She said that the body was then placed in a bed when she recognized his features as those of the Duke of Orleans. Then friends gathered around the bed and later came the King and queen of France all weeping. She saw the doctor who stood over the Duke feeling his pulse with his watch in his other hand, but she could only see the doctors back then. The scene had faded from her vision. When daylight finally came, she recorded the vision in her journal. It was before the days of the Telegraph and it was more than two days before the newspapers announced the death of the Duke of Orleans. The lady visited Paris afterwards and recognize the place of the accident. It then appeared that the attending physician who’s faced she could not see and her vision was an old friend of hers who then told her that as he watched the bed, his mind had involuntarily dwelt upon her and her family. The well known case of Swedenborg gave us another illustration of this class of psycho Mancy. It is related that in the latter part of September, 1759 at four o’clock one Saturday afternoon, Swedenborg arrived home from England and disembarked at Gotham Burke. Mr w Castelle met him and invited him to dinner. At which meal there were 15 persons gathered around the table at six o’clock that evening, Swedenborg went out a few minutes returning to the table, excited and pale. When questioned, he said there was a fire at Stockholm 200 miles distant, which was steadily spreading. He grew very restless and frequently left the room. He said that the house of one of his friends whose name he mentioned was already in ashes and that his own was in danger at eight o’clock after he had been out again, he returned crying out, cheerfully, thank heaven. The fire is out the third door from my house, the news of the occurrence excited the whole town and the officials made an inquiry regarding it and Swedenborg was summoned before the governor and requested to relate what he had seen in detail answering the governor. He told when and where the fire had started, how it had begun, how when and where did it stopped and the last time it lasted, the number of houses destroyed people injured. On the following Monday morning, a courier arrived from Stockholm bringing news of the fire, having left the town while it was still burning. On the next day after Tuesday morning, another courier arrived at the governor’s palace with a full report of the fire, which corresponded precisely with the vision of Swedenborg. The fire had stopped precisely at eight o’clock the minute that Swedenborg had so announced it to the company. Stead relates the following instance of this class of Sika Mancy, which was told him by the wife of a Dean of the Episcopal church. The lady said, I was visiting in Virginia once, some hundred miles away from home when one morning about 11 o’clock I felt an overpowering sleepiness, which drowsiness was quite unusual and which caused me to lie down in my sleep. I saw quite distinctly my home in Richmond in flames. The fire had broken out one wing of the house, which I saw with dismay was where I kept all my best dresses. The people were all trying to check the flames, but it was no use. My husband was there walking about before the burning house carrying a portrait in his hand. Everything was quite clear and distinct exactly as if I had actually been present and seen everything. After a time I woke up and going downstairs, told my friends the strange dream I had. They laughed at me and made such game of my vision that I did my best to think no more about it. I was traveling about a day or two past and when Sunday came I found myself in a church where some relatives were worshiping and when I entered the Pew they looked rather strange and as soon as the service was over, I asked them what was the matter? Don’t be alarmed. They said there’s nothing than they had handed me a postcard from her, my husband, which simply said house burned out covered by insurance. The day the was the date upon which my dream occurred, I hastened home and then I learned that everything had had happened exactly as I had seen. The fire had broken out in the wing. I had seen blazing, my clothes were all burnt and the oddest thing about it was that my husband having rescued a favorite picture from the burning building had carried it about among the crowd for some time before he could find a place in which to put it safely. Okay. A well authenticated case is that of the wreck of the ship. Strathmore stead relates the story as follows. The father of a son who had sailed in the Strathmore and emigrant ship outbound from Clyde saw one night the ship foundering amid the waves and saw that his son was with some others, had escaped safely to a desert Island near which the wrecked had taken place. He was so much impressed by this vision that he wrote to the owner of the Strathmore telling him what he’d seen. His information was scouted, but after awhile the Strathmore became overdue and the owner became uneasy day, followed day and still no tidings of the missing ship. [inaudible] then like Pharaoh’s Butler, the owner remembered his sins one day and hunted up the letter describing the vision. It supplied at least a theory to account for the vessels disappearance. All outward bound ships were requested to look out for any survivors on the Island. Indicated in the vision. These orders being obeyed. The survivors at the Strathmore were found exactly where the father had seen them. Another interesting case is reported by the society previously mentioned. It reports that dr Golinski, a physician of chroma Chang Russia, was taking an after dinner nap in the afternoon. About half past three o’clock. He had a vision in which he saw himself called out on a professional visit, which took him to a little room with dark hangings to the right of the door. He saw a chest of drawers upon which rested a little paraffin lamp of special pattern, different from anything he had ever seen before. On the left of the door, he saw a woman suffering from a severe hemorrhage. He then saw himself giving her professional treatment and then he awoke suddenly and saw that it was half past four o’clock. Then comes the string sequel. Within 10 minutes after you woke, he was called out on a professional visit and an entering a bedroom. He saw all the details that it appeared to him. In his vision. There was the chest of drawers. There was the peculiar lamp. There was the woman on the bed suffering from the hemorrhage upon inquiry. He found that she had grown worse between three and four o’clock and it anxiously desired that he come to her about that time. Finally, dispatching a messenger for him and half past four. The moment at which you woke. We could fill page after page with these interesting and well authenticated instances, but our lack of space prevents, we’ve stated enough to illustrate the principle and then besides many of our readers will know of many similar instances in the actual experience of themselves, relatives or friends. Volumes would not contain all the true stories of phenomena of this kind and still people smile in a superior way at the mere suggestion of the phenomenon. Lesson nine past time psycho Mansie as we have previously stated time cycle. Mancy is a term used to designate that phase of the phenomenon in which one sense is objects, events, persons, et cetera in the records of the past and also in which he senses the indications of the future, the shadows of coming events for convenience, we shall separate our consideration of the subject into two parts of is one past time cycle Mancy and two future times cycle Mancy. The first question that naturally arises in the minds of careful students in connection with this phase of the phenomenon is how is the person able to sense the occurrences and objects of the past? There are no vibrations emanating from past scenes as they no longer exist. How can anyone see them by astral vision or by any other means? This question is a most proper one for even those who readily grasp the explanation of space cycle. Mancy find themselves at a loss to understand the past time phenomena without knowledge of the occult teachings on the subject [inaudible] the Akashic records the secret of pastime, psycho sacraments Sacramento is found in the occult teachings of the Akashic records by which is meant that on the higher planes of universal substance, there are to be found records of all that has happened and occurred during the entire world cycle of which the present time forms apart. These records are preserved until the termination of the world cycle. When they pass away with the world of which they are a record. This does not mean that there is any great book in which the doings good and bad of people are written down by the recording angel as popular. Fanciful legends have it, but it does mean that there is a scientific occult basis for the popular legend. In spite of sneers of the skeptics, we must turn to modern science for corroboration. It is now taught by scientists that there is no such thing as a destruction of energy, but that energy always exists in some form. The occult teachings verify this and go further when they state that every action thought happening, event, occurrence, et cetera, no matter how small or insignificant leaves an indelible record on the Akasha or the universal ether with which space is filled. In other words, every auction or scene that has ever occurred or existed in the past has left an impression in the universal either or CATIA, where it may be read by developed psycho Mansie. There’s nothing especially wonderful about this when you compare it with other facts in nature. Astronomy teaches us that light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles a second and that there are fixed stars in space so far removed from the earth that there light leaving them hundreds. Yes, thousands of years ago is only now reaching our site. In other words, and when we look at some of the fixed stars, we do not see them as they are now or where they now are, but nearly see them where and how they were hundreds of years ago when the rays of light left them. Astronomers tell us that if one of these stars happened to be blotted out of existence hundreds of years ago, we would still be seeing the light that left them before the event. In other words, we’d be seeing them hundreds of years after they had ceased to be an our children and children’s children for several generations would still see them and would not learn of the terrible catastrophe for hundreds of years before it actually happened. The vibrations of light once set into motion would persist for centuries and even for thousands of years after their source had disappeared. This is no wild occult fancy, but a well-proven and thoroughly established scientific fact as any one may see for himself by reference to any work on astronomy. And the same is true of waves of electricity or electronic emanations or waves of any kind of energy really even in the physical view of things, nothing can exist without leaving a record in the universal ether. And so the occult teachings now find their corroboration in modern science. Another illustration is found in the phenomena of the Mont memory of man stored away in our brain. Cells are records of things, events, scenes, occurrences, people and objects registered there in past years. [inaudible] you often find yourself thinking about people, things and events of years long since passed away and by a mere effort of the will, you bring the records of these people things or events before your mental vision and see them reproduced in detail, dissect a brain cell and you will find no trace of the thing there. But nevertheless, every exercise of memory proves that the record is there and there is nothing more wonderful or miraculous in the Akashic records of past events than there is in the memory record of past events. The universal ether or Akasha has within itself a true and full record of anything and everything that has ever existed within its space. And if one develops the power to read these records at will, he has a full and complete key to the past from the speaking of the creative word, which begins this great world cycle. But in order to avoid ms apprehension, we must say to our students that none but the most advanced and highly developed occultists and masters have clear access to the Plains upon which these records are to be found. The majority of psycho Mansour’s merely see on the lower astral plane a reflection of the Akashic records, which reflection may be compared to the reflection of the trees and landscape in a pond of water, which of course is often more or less imperfect, distorted and disturbed by the ripples and waves. Occasionally by passing breezes and sometimes being made muddy and clouded the records of the past open to the average cycle. Mansour are merely reflections of records which are apt to be more or less distorted or cloudy by reason of the disturbances of the surface of the reflecting medium. This is a brief and simple statement of an important occult scientific truth which would require volumes to explain. Technically the illustration of the reflecting surface of the water, however, is so true to the real facts that the student may confidently adopt the same as his mental image of the phenomena of past time, psycho Mancy. In actual practice, we find the phenomena of pastime psycho Mancy manifested principally along the line of psychometry and crystal gazing. The consideration of which phases of phenomena has been made in previous lessons. In this book, there are to be found however many instances of at least a partial manifestation of this phase of power among individuals in everyday life who when meeting a person frequently get impressions more or less correct of his or her past life, past scenes, et cetera. The German writer Joshkey in his autobiography, writes as follows, regarding this power of pastimes, psycho Mancy possessed by him and which was often set into operation when he came into the presence of strangers for the first time he States it has happened to me sometimes on my first meetings with strangers as I silently listened to their discourse that their former life with many trifling circumstances there with connected or frequently some particular scene in that life has passed quite in voluntarily and as it were dreamlike yet perfectly distinct before me. During this time, I usually feel so entirely absorbed in the contemplation of the stranger’s life that it lasts. I no longer see clearly the face of the unknown where an eye under zine Adley read nor distinctly hear the voices of the speakers, which before served in some measure as a commentary on the text of their features. For a long time I held such visions as delusions of the fancy and the more so as they showed me even the dress and emotions of the actors, rooms, furniture, and other accessories, but I soon discovered otherwise on one occasion in a gay mood. I narrated to my family the secret history of a seamstress who had just created the room I’d never seen the young moment before. Nevertheless, the heres were astonished and laughed and would not be persuaded, but that I had a previous acquaintance with her and the facts of her former life in as much as I w what I had stated was perfectly true. I was not the less astonished. Then they defined that my vision agreed with reality. I then gave more attention to the subject and as often as propriety allowed it, I related to those whose lives had passed before me, the substance of my visions in order to obtain from them a contradiction or verification thereof on every occasion, the confirmation followed not without amazement on the part of those who gave it. One day in the city of walled shift, I entered in in the vine in company with two young students. We supped with a numerous company at the table dealt where the guests were making very Mary with the peculiarities of the Swiss with Mesmer’s magnetism, lava terrors, physiognomy, et cetera. One of my companions whose national pride was wounded by their mockery, begged me to make some reply, particularly to a handsome young man who set up opposite to us and who had allowed himself extraordinary license. This man’s life was at that moment, present did to my mind. I turned to him and asked whether he would answer me candidly if I related to him some of the most secret passages of his life. I knowing as little of him personally as he did of me, he promised if I were to correct to admit it, frankly, I then related that my vision has shown me and the whole company were made acquainted with the private history of the young merchant. His school years is you for errors and lasted we with a fault committed in reference to the strong box of his principle. I described the uninhabited room with whitened walls where do the right of the Brown door on a table stood the black money box, a dead silence prevailed during the whole narrative, which I alone occasionally interrupted by inquiring whether I spoke the truth. The startled young man confirmed every particular and even what I had scarcely expected. The last mentioned touched by his candor. I shook hands with him and said no more. He is probably still living lesson 10 future time, psycho Mansie, future times psych and Mancy as the term itself indicates is the name given to that class of phenomenon in which one is able to sense the astral plane impression of coming events, the psychic shadows thrown before by coming events in order to give the student a technical nature of the occult cause. Behind this phenomenon would require volumes of the deepest metaphysical law, which field is foreign to the purposes of this work which deals with phenomena alone and does not enter into the metaphysical side of the subject. It will be sufficient for the student to understand that in the astral as well as on the physical plane coming events cast their shadows before without entering into a discussion of destiny or fate or anything of that kind. It may be stated that when causes are set into motion, the effects follow unless other causes intervene. In some cases, certain effects have been averted by reason of the previous vision. In such cases, the other causes intervened which showed that the matter was not wholly cut and dry. It is like a man walking toward a precipice. He will walk over unless he is warned in some way. He is not faded to walk over, but over he will go unless warned and prevented. Do you see what we mean? On the other hand, there seems to be cases in which the person seems unable to escape the effect of causes once set into motion. He even seems to run into the effect while seeking to escape it. In this connection, the little fable of the Persians may be quoted. The story goes that a friend was with Solomon when the angel of death entered and gazed at him. Fixedly upon learning who the strange visitor was, the friend said to Solomon, pray, transport me on the magic carpet to Damascus that I may escape this dread messenger and Solomon complied with his request and the man was instantly magically transported to Damascus. Then said the angel of death to Solomon. Oh Solomon. The reason that I gave so intently at Dai friend was because I had orders from on high to take him from the body at Damascus and low finding him here at Jerusalem. I was sore, perplexed as how to obey my orders, but thou by transporting him to Damascus hath rendered my task and easy one. Many thanks for the help at by friend’s suggestion Oh King and saying which the angel of death was wafted away to Damascus to take the man according to his orders, the phenomenon of PERMA premonitions provision and second site or all forms or phases of future times psych, MNC and these various forms. The phenomena is of quite common and frequent occurrence and is met with all over the world and the isle of Skye. Many persons possessed the gift of second sight in varying degree, but they claim that a native of the Island loses the power when he moves to the mainland. In the same way the scotch Highlander among whose people the gift is quite common is said to sometimes lose the faculty when he removes to the low lands. The Westphalian pheasants also are noted for the power of second sight and instance of this phase of the phenomenon well known in England. Is that connected with the assassination of mr Percival in the lobby of the house of commons? This deed was foreseen by John Williams, a Cornish mine manager some nine days before its actual occurrence. The vision was being perfect down to the most minute details. Williams had the vision three times in succession. He saw a small man dressed in a blue coat and white waistcoat entered the lobby of the house of commons. When another person dressed in a snuff colored coat stepped forward and drawing a pistol from an inside pocket fired out and shot the little man, the bullet lodging in the left breast. He seemed to ask some bystander who was the victim, and he received the reply that it was mr Percival, the chancellor of the extra Drucker. Williams was so much wrought up over the vision that he seriously can contemplated going to London to warn the victim, but his friends to whom he told the story, ridiculed him and persuaded him not to go on a fool’s errand. A few days later, the news was received. The sassy nation of mr Percival in precisely the manner indicated by the vision George Fox. The Quaker experienced the impression of a waft of death about Cromwell when he met him riding at Hampton court. Shortly before his fatal illness, Fox also foretold the expulsion of the rump parliament, the restoration of Charles the second and the fire of London. Caesar’s wife had a warning of her husband’s death. The Bible is filled with similar instances. We will conclude this lesson with a recital of the wonderful instance of [inaudible] whose prediction and its literal fulfillment are now matters of French history. LA Harpe tells the story as follows, it appears, but as yesterday, and yet nevertheless, it was at the beginning of the year 1788 we were dining with one of our brethren at the Academy, a man of considerable wealth and genius. The conversation became serious, much admiration was expressed on the revolution in thought, which Voltaire had affected and it was agreed that it was his first claim to the reputation he enjoyed. We concluded that the revolution must soon be consummated, that it was indispensable, that superstition and fanaticism should give place to philosophy and we began to calculate the probability of the period when this should be and which of the present companies should live to see it. The oldest complained they could scarcely flatter themselves with the hope, the younger rejoiced, that they might entertain this very probable expectation and they congratulated the Academy, especially for having prepared this great work and for having been the great rallying point, the center and prime mover of the Liberty of thought. Only one of the guests had not taken part in all the joyousness of this conversation and had even gently and cheerfully checked our splendid enthusiasm. This was Cozadd and amicable and original man, but unhappily infatuated with the reveries of the Illuminati. He spoke and with the most serious tone gentlemen said he be satisfied. You will all see this great and sublime revolution, which you so much desire. You know that I’m a little inclined to prophecy. I repeat. You will see it. He was answered by the common rejoinder. One need not be a conjurer to see that be it. So, but perhaps one must be a little more than conjurer for what remains for me to tell you. Do you know what will be the consequence of this revolution? What will be the consequence to all of you and what will be the immediate result, the well-established effect, the thoroughly recognized consequence to all of you here present, ah, said con Condorcet with his insolent and half suppressed smile. Let us hear. A philosopher is not sorry to encounter a prophet, you Moser Dick on beset, you will yield up your last breath on the floor of a dungeon. You will die from poison, which you will have taken in order to escape from execution, from poison, which the happiness of that time will oblige you to carry about. Your person won’t sewer, they shall fall. You will open your veins with 22 cuts of the razor and yet you will not die until some months afterward. They looked at each other and laughed again. Human server, victim victims here, you will not open your own veins, but you will cause yourself to bleed six times in one day during a Peraza ism of the gout in order to make more sure of your end. And you will die in the night you mole sewer, they knock Nikolai. You will die upon the scaffold and new mole sewer by lay on the scaffold you mow, Sue de Marcia bass on the scaffold. Ah God. Be thanked, exclaimed rule Cher and what of I you, you also will die upon the scaffold. Yes, replies shall for. But when will this all happen? Six years will not pass over. Before all that I have said to you shall be accomplished. Here are some astonishing miracles and this time it was I, myself, the harp who had spoke, but you’ve not included me in your list, would you will be there as an equally extraordinary miracle. You will then be a Christian vehement exclamation on all sides. Ah replied, Sean forte, I am comfort, comforted if we shall perish. Only when the harp shall be a Christian. We are immortal. As for that, then observed Madame LA Dushay de grandma, we women, we are happy to be counted for nothing in these revolution. When I say for nothing, it is not. We do not always mix ourselves up with them a little, but it is a received Maxim that they take no notice of us and of our sex. Your sex ladies will not protect you this time and you had far better metal with nothing for you will be treated entirely as men without any difference, whatever. But what then are you really telling us of mole sewer? Cozart you are preaching to us the end of the world. I know nothing on the subject, but what I do know is that you, Madame lad to chase will be conducted to the scaffold, you and many other ladies with you in the cart of the execution and with your hands tied your backs. Ah, I hope that in that case I shall at least have a carriage hung in black. No MME higher ladies than yourself. We’ll go like you in the common car with their hands tied behind them. Higher ladies, what the princess is, a blood still more exalted percentages here is sensible emotion pervaded the whole company and the countenance of the host was dark and lowering. They began to feel that the joke was become too serious, but Dom digital mall, in order to dissipate the cloud, took no notice of the reply and contented herself with the saying in a careless tone. You see that he will not leave me even a confessor Nova dent. Madame, you will not have one. Neither you nor anyone besides the last victim to whom this February will be afforded will be. He stopped for a moment. Well, who then will it be mortal to whom this prerogative will be given? TIS the only one which he will have then retained and that will be the King of France. The amazing sequel to this historical prediction is that it was verified in every detail as all students of the French revolution. No. And all within the six years as Cassat four told [inaudible] [inaudible] lesson 11 dream psycho. Mansi [inaudible]. The student will have noted that in many cases and mentioned it in these lessons. The psychometric vision manifested during physical sleep. The reason of this occurrence is that in the majority of persons, the physical nature, when awake holds the attention of the individual to such an extent as to prevent him from manifesting the psychic faculties clearly, but when the physical body sinks into sleep, then the field is clear for the exercise of the astral senses, which not being fatigued or in fine condition to manifest. In fact, the majority of persons do manifest psycho Mancy during sleep, but have little or no recollection of the same when waking beyond indistinct. Recollections of dreams still, many of you who read these lines will have a more or less clear remembrance of certain dreams in which you seem to visit other places, scenes, lands, countries, et cetera. Seeing strange faces, landscapes, and upon awakening or somewhat annoyed at having been brought back from your pleasant travels. It is not our intention to enter into an extended consideration of the general subject of dreams at this time and place. Rewrite these few lines merely for the purpose of calling your attention to the fact that the phenomenon of psycho Mancy very frequently manifest itself in dreams. For the reasons stated above, the principle and both the waking and dream phenomena is precisely the same. The apparent difference being that the dreamer very seldom carries back with him a clear and connected memory of his vision. While the waking person is able to impress his astral vision upon a wide awake physical brain there to be remembered, you will find several instances of dream psycho Mancy recorded in the various lessons of this work inserted for the purpose of illustrating the several phases of the phenomenon. In such cases, we have made no distinction between the psycho mantic phenomenon experienced in dreams on the one hand and that experienced in the waking state. On the other hand, the principle is the same in both cases and there is no necessity for making any such distinction between the phenomenon occurring under any one of the several general classes, but as we still have to spare a few pages of the space allotted to us in the preparation of these lessons, we think that we should give you a few more of the interesting cases of record. A well known and interesting case is that mentioned in the proceedings of the cycle research society of London. It is related as follows. On September 9th, 1848 at the siege of [inaudible] [inaudible] major general AR was most severely in dangerously wounded and supposing himself to be dying. Axed one of his officers with him to take the ring off his finger and send it to his wife where the time was fully 150 miles distant at for Rosa por on the night of September 9th, 1848 writes his wife. I was lying on my bed between sleeping and waking when I distinctly saw my husband being carried off the field, seriously wounded and hurt his voice saying, take this ring off my finger and send it to my wife all the next day. I could not get the sight of or the voice out of my mind in due time. I heard of general our having been seriously wounded in the assault of Milton. He survived however, and he’s still living. It was not for some time after the seeds that I heard from generalL the officer who helped to carry my husband off the field, that the request as to the ring was actually made by him. Just as I heard at frozen pore at that very time. The following related by mrs Crow is interesting, particularly in its aspect as a warning. A few days ago, Dr. Watson now residing at Glasgow, dreamt that he received a summons to attend a patient at a place some miles away from where he was living, that he started on horseback and that he was crossing a more, he saw bull making furiously, Adam, whose horns he escaped only by taking refuge on a spot inaccessible to the animal where he waited a long time till some people observing the situation came to his assistance and released him. While at breakfast. The following morning, the summons came and smiling at the odd coincidence as he thought it, he started on horseback. He was quite ignorant of the road he had to go, but by and by he arrived at the more which he recognized and presented. The bull appeared coming full tort towards him, but his dream had shown him the place of refuge for which the instantly made and dare. He spent three or four hours besieged by the animal till the country people set him free. Dr. Watson declared that before a dream, he should not him known in what direction to run for safety. This case is an instance of future time Sika Mancy as the student will readily see. Here’s another case coming under the same classification. It is related by Dr. Lee. Mrs. Hannah Green, the housekeeper of a country family in Oxford. Char dreamt one night she’d been left alone in the house on a Sunday evening, and that hearing a knock at the door of the chief entrance, she went to it and found confronting her and ugly tramp armed with a big club who forced himself into the house in spite of her struggles, striking her insensible with his club during the conflict. She awoke at this point, a considerable period of time elapsed and she had almost forgotten her dream until it was recalled in a startling manner. She was then in charge of an isolated mansion at Kensington and on a Sunday afternoon when the servants had taken all holiday, leaving her alone, she was startled by a loud knock at the door at once. The memory of her dream flashed before her with a singular vividness and remarkable force. She knew that she was alone, but for the purpose of frightening away the intruder, she lied at a lamp on the hall table and afterwards in other places in the house, and also rang the bells violently in different parts of the house. She also made that the doors and windows were fastened. She succeeded in scaring off the man, but making him believe that the house was occupied by the family or several people at least, but not until she had thrown up the window over the stair landing and there to her intense terror, saw the identical man of her dream armed with the same club and demanding an entrance. She’d not been warned by the stream of several years previous. She would have met with the fate such as she had dreamed of the following. Case of dream Sika Mancy, which is a good example of astral projection during sleep is related by a correspondent of the psychical research society as follows. One morning in December, 1836 he had the following dream or he would prefer to call it revelation. He found himself suddenly at the gate of major and M’s Avenue, many miles from his home. Close to him was a group of persons, one of whom was a woman with a basket on her arm. The rest of the men, four of whom were tenants of his own, while the other words were unknown to him, some of the strangers seem to be assaulting, HW, one of his tenants, and he interfered. I struck violently at the man on my left and then with greater violence in the man’s face on my right, finding to my surprise that I had not knocked down either. I struck again and again with all the violence of a man frenzied at the site of my poor friends, murder. To my great amazement, I saw my arms, although visible to my eye or without substance and the bodies of the men, I struck it. My own came close together. After each blow through the shadowy arms. I struck with my blows were delivered with more extreme violence than I ever think I exerted, but I became painfully convinced of my incompetency. I have no consciousness of what happened after this feeling of unsubstantiated [inaudible] came upon me the next morning. EI, experienced the stiffness and soreness of violent bodily exercise and was informed by his wife that in the course of the night he had much alarmed her by striking out again and again with his arms in a terrific manner. As if fighting for his life. He in turn informed her of his dream and begged her to remember the names of those actors in it who are known to him. On the morning of the following day. Wednesday a received a letter from his agent who resided in the town close to the scene of the dream informing that is attendant had been found on Tuesday morning at major NMS gate, speechless and apparently dying from a fracture of the skull and that there was no trace of the murderers that night a started for the town and arrived there on Thursday morning on his way to a meeting of magistrates. He met this senior magistrate of that part of the country and requested him to give orders for the arrest of three men whom besides H w he had recognized in his dream and to have them examined separately. This was done at once. The three men gave identical accounts of the occurrence and all named the woman who was with them. She was then arrested and gay. Precisely similar testimony. They said that between 11 and 12 on the Monday night, they had been walking home words altogether along the road when they were overtaken by three strangers, two of whom savagely assaulted, HW while the other prevented his friends from interfering. HW did not die but was never the same man afterwards. He subsequently, the emigrated stead relates the following case which was imparted to him as a truthful and correct account of the vision of a murder scene in all of its details by a brother of the murdered man. It is a case of astral projection. Undoubtedly Saint egos is situated about 10 miles from the Atlantic and not quite so far from the old market town of turboed winner Hart and George Northey were brothers and from childhood. Their lives had been marked by the strongest brotherly affection. Hart and George Northey had never been separated from their birth until George became a sailor. Hurt. Meantime, joining his father in business on the 8th of February, 1840 while George ne ship was lying in port st Elena. He had the following, strange dream last night. I dreamt my brother was at treble when a market and that I was with him quite close by his side during the whole market transaction. Although I could see and hear everything which passed around me, I felt sure that I was not my bodily presence, which does accompanied him, but my shadow or rather my spiritual presence for he seemed quite unconscious that I was near him. I felt that my being thus present in this strange way, but token some hidden danger which he was destined to meet in which I knew my presence could not avert for I could not speak to warm him of its peril. The brother having collected considerable money, Ben started on his ride Homeward. The story then continues my terror gradually increased as hard approached the Hamlet of poker Rao until I was in perfect frenzy, frantically desirous, yet unable to warn my brother in some way and prevent him from going further. I suddenly became aware of two dark shadows thrown across the road. I felt my brother’s hour had come and I was powerless to aid him. Two men appeared whom I instantly recognize as notorious poachers who lived in a lonely wood near st Glos. The men wished him good night muster civilly enough. He replied and entered into conversation with them. About some work he had promised them. After a few minutes, they asked him for some money. The older of the two brothers who was standing near the horses had said, mr Northey, we know you have just come from triple Dwayne a market with plenty of money in your pockets. We are desperate men and you beat going to leave this place until we’ve got that money. So handed over. My brother made no reply except slash at him with the whip and spur the horse at him. The younger the rough [inaudible] instantly drew a pistol and fired heart, dropped lifeless from the saddle and one of the Villiam villains held him by the throat with a grip of iron some minutes away as though to make assurance doubly sure and crush out any particle of life. My poor brother might have left the murderers, secured the horse to a tree in the orchard and having rifled the corpse. They dragged it up the stream, concealing it under the overhanging banks of the watercourse. They then carefully covered all the marks of blood on the road and he had the pistol in the thatch of a disused hut close to the road side. Then setting the horse free to Gallup home alone, they decamped across the country to their own cottage. The vessel left st Helena next day and reached Plymouth in due course. George Northern he had during the whole of the voyage never altered his conviction that Hart had been killed as he had drempt and that retribution was by his means to fall on the murderers. The SQL shows that the murder was actually committed in precisely the manner in which he had appeared in his brother’s dream. The crime aroused universal horror and indignation and every effort was made to discover the murderers and bring them to justice. Two brothers named Highwood were suspected and a search of their cottage revealed bloodstained garments, but no trace of the pistol was to be found. Although the younger brother admitted having had one and lost it, the story continues. Both brothers were arrested and brought before the magistrates. The evidence against them was certainly not strong, but their manner seemed that of guilty men. They were ordered to take their trial at the forthcoming as eases and trebled Wiener. They each confessed in hope of saving their lives and both were sentenced to be hanged. There was however some doubt about the pistol before the execution Jordan nor the arrived from st Helena and declared that the pistol was in the thatch of the old cottage close by the house where they murdered Hart Northey and where they hit it. How did you know he was asked? Jordan Northey replied, I saw the foul deed committed in a dream I had the night of the murder when st Helena I a pistol was found as George Northey had predicted in the thatch of the ruined cottage. We trust that we have established the identity of waking psycho Mancy and dream psycho Mancy to your satisfaction and that is the wonderful book written by William Walker Atkinson, practical psycho Mancy and crystal gazing. I hope that you can see why I read this book for the reality revolution, one of the most popular concepts that I discuss on multiple episodes is the idea of the space of variations of the alternative space, that there’s a space available to us that has all of the information of the future. In the past, I’ve tried to give you access to that from different meditations and teachings that I’ve done, but this idea of the Akashic record is exactly that. What’s interesting is that this book, which was so long ago, the copyright was 1908 we’ll tell you that this has been around for more than 110 hundred 11 years and these things sound new. This isn’t, this book is very evergreen. A few things and observation of this book. It’s very matter of fact written and it does give you the idea that looking back on older works of occult teachings can be very helpful considering the fact that this book was written in 1908 it will tell you that perhaps in the past when there was less technology, when we had more time to go inside, that we had higher psychic faculties. People didn’t have their phones or their computers or their TVs or their, even their radios. In 1908 they had books and they explored the way their mind worked by looking at projecting things into different areas. Some of the examples that he gives of people projecting themselves materially are fascinating and in fact are mentioned in many books. I was just reading the Odo autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda and in that book there are several instances where people project their bodies materially to other places. They just do it matter of factly. This is about the same time, so this is something that you read about with a lot of yoga gurus that do this kind of thing. Nonchalant all the time. The interesting thing when you read about people that have these sort of capabilities, the ones that have it the most seemed to reduce the importance of it. But clearly there is this field of information that we can access. Dr Joe Dispenza calls it the quantum field, quasi Joe here in his book calls it the all space and some people call it source like Abraham, but it’s the Akashic record and all of it is one fantastically interesting thing and it’s a, it’s a wonderful idea. The reason that this book spoke to me directly is that I had had what felt like dream psycho Mancy and future psych emergency ride seen and experienced events. Exactly. They’d happened. I had a traumatic event where somebody attempted to break into my house and I remembered it all clearly beforehand and as it was happening to me. So the reason that this book spoke out to me is because that had happened to me. So if you’ve had some vivid dream or experience, put it in the notes and I would love to hear your experiences of having dream visions and in those particular cases what exactly happened for you. We can access this if we move away from using our phones and minimize our technology and go inside, we can access this. Another interesting subject that was described in this was the astral tube and frankly it wasn’t completely clear. There’s a section on polarization for the astral tube, which is more to me, the definitions that we read acted like a balance that was happening, but a channel four channel to form there has to, it has to polarize as it says, when the human will is directed toward a distant person or object under the proper psychic condition. It tends to polarize a path or channel through the Astro atmosphere toward the desired point. And so when you read about string theory, it’s very much like we’re using a string that connects all things and that is already there and we’re using and tuning into that string that is connected to that other object or time or place or event or thing. And we’re connecting into that string and some level, everything is entangled, but you may be able to create entanglement with other objects. This allows us to see them, to experience them. I have never looked at a crystal ball, but supposedly in my family, I’ve had my great grandmother was really, really good at looking at crystal balls or another reason this book spoke to me when I saw that. Uh, I’ve always thought that there is something to psycho psychometry and I love going to antique shops and picking up objects or getting close to them and getting a sense of what had happened in the history of it. Sometimes that’s what is so wonderful to be at a antique shop. It’s not the, the objects, it’s the feeling that you get that brings this history that is tuned into the past. And he also talks about astral projection all the way back in 1908 and the stories that he gave are interesting. We’re getting better and better about learning how to do astral projection since this book of course that there’ve been some wonderful books that have been written and I experiment a little bit about with Ash projection on a recent meditation for the deep sleep meditation. But there are wonderful things that you can experience with that. The very interesting thing was space cycle Mancy which is something that I’m very fascinated by, which is looking at a distance at different things that are happening. Uh, similar to remote viewing from the way he described it and if you’ve ever read about remote viewing, there is programs in the CIA where people are developed this. And if you look up Russell targ a very good researcher on this. It is a real thing and I believe I’ve been able to get impressions by using this particular skill. All of it seems to be related. The reason that this book is so interesting is it brings these skills and talents into one figure. If you go back and look at the discoveries that we’ve made in quantum physics, this book still resonates. It has an evergreen feeling to it. The other thing is the discussion of the Akashic record, which is something that I am fascinated by on this podcast and if you, I believe that I’ve actually accessed it. It may have been in dreams, but if you don’t know what the Akashic record as we described in the book it is, is the idea of a library full of information, all the information that you could ever need about yourself, about the world, about what’s going on, about what’s going to happen 10 days from now, what happened to you 200 years ago, and that library actually exists and this library is called the Akashic records. And I know that there are people that do not believe that this exists, but science is proving more and more that it does, that the void of space contains holographic part and properties, meaning that all of it, all of space is in every particle. And so we can access this if we tune into it and we can develop our psychic abilities by reading this. This is giving you some different techniques that you can use this space to access the Akashic records. These are old things in the past you can certainly experiment with and what is in these records. While the term Akashik comes from the Sanskrit word, a Casa, which means sky or ethers, and this represents the unending expanse of vibrating consciousness as both are shared and individual truth. Every energetic vibration thought, emotion and information including your personal information from your own internal history. It’s amazing and I will be doing additional episodes. We will continue to explore how to go through the Akashic records. If you check out, I have a couple of meditations you can check out the infinity, uh, you can check out the infinity palace meditation and also meeting your quantum higher self. And I, I take you to the Akashic records in those meditations. As I have said on a couple of episodes previously, I have visited in my dreams or deep meditation places that appear to be like a, it’s almost like a tourist resort right next to the Akashic records, an actual fields like place on the astral plane where people play around with all of this information where they look at all of the, the great loves in your life, in other lives, and you can experience all these different variant emotions and anything, the infinity of anything creates some incredible imagine all of the greatest roller coasters to ever exist in the universe and you can experience them in one place, that kind of thing. It’s kind of like the Disneyland of the universe. So another interesting place to read about, and we may look into this a little bit more as Edgar Casey and the caustic Ram Kaushik records and the modern mystic Edgar Casey wrote extensively about the Akashic records. Very fascinating to read about. He conducted thousands of sessions where he called readings where he would meditate, take meticulous record and information when he would go into meditation and he would answer medical questions in these altered States using these Akashic records. And Edgar Casey stated that the, that, that he would get this information from either the individual subconscious or the Akashic records. And one of the readings he describes both the expansiveness and the individuality of the experience. He says the entity itself sees and is being taught. The records are written in nature, in the rocks, in the Hills, and the trees in that term, the genealogical log of nature itself, just as true in the record, the mind makes upon the film of time and space in the activities of a body with its soul. So these records exist and it’s very interesting to explore. And this book will give you a step by step lessons on how to access these. So I challenge you, find some objects in your house, bring them up to your forehead, let the impressions flow start to go inside cause it’s easy to lose sense of your, of your senses. Develop your Astro senses. One of the things that I have taught in other episodes of the reality revolution is the idea of wave fronts, information from the future that is coming towards us and as is described in this book that they, that they can sense future events on the astral plane as ripples. So there’s waves coming in. That is why give yourself some time in silence. Give yourself some time in meditation on a regular basis to access these wave fronts. These wave fronts have the information of the universe for you. So maybe I will possibly create a meditation around the idea of the astral tube. If I can understand that section on polarization than I might, and I’ll probably definitely create a separate Akashic records meditation. Why not? It’s good to have one so that you can go specifically to explore all of the information that’s available. Okay. But it’s not as easy as just accessing it through meditation and there are some pretty good examples on how to do it. A lot of this book is just examples, so I would love to get your idea of how you access the Akashic records. Impressions from the future and past if you’ve ever found something or information on somebody through objects or any or any experience, anything that as described from this old in wonderful book. As always, it’s a pleasure to share these experiences with you and I would love to get your impressions of this and there are several more books by Mr. Atkinson that I will be sharing at some point in the future.
