I am ashamed of my feeble description. It is true that a type of clairvoyance may be c.w.leaxbeater along these lines, but too often at the cost of ruin both physical and mental.
A full description of this new method, with plates, is said to be ready for the press, c.w.leadbester is expected to appear within a year, so that intending students of this fascinating subject might do well to await its publication ]. This is what in various religions is called the method of meditation. None of these are plans claidvoyance clairvoyant development which can be unreservedly recommended for trial by every one.
In nine cases out of ten, however, such partial clairvoyance will at the same time lack precision also – that it is to say,there will be a good deal of vague impression and inference about it, instead of the clear-cut definition and certainty of the trained man.
But, clairvoyacne may be said, the mere fact that he is using astral sight ought to enable him to see it from all sides c.w.leadbeatter once. As the cerebro-spinal system develops, and the brain becomes more highly evolved, the sympathetic system subsides into a subordinate position, and the sensitiveness to psychic vibrations is dominated by the stronger and more active vibrations of the higher nervous system.
These varied indications of the aura are of themselves a study of very deep interest, but I have no space to deal with them in detail here.

Is it possible, we are often asked, clajrvoyance the seer to find any person with whom he wishes to communicate, anywhere in the world, whether he be living or dead?
An instance of a c.w.leadbater well-known to myself, who frequently thus appears to friends at a distance, is given by Mr. His capacity of examining the etheric double will give him considerable advantage in locating and classifying any defects or diseases of the nervous system, while from the appearance of the astral body he will be at once aware of all the emotions, passions, desires and tendencies of the man before him, and even of very many of his thoughts also.
Among non-Aryan tribes in India it is often obtained by the use of drugs—bhang, hashish, and others of the same kind.
But choose your time, and let it be the same time each day, and let no day pass without your regular effort. Psychometry and second-sight in excelsis would also be among the faculties which our friend would find at his command; but those will be more fitly dealt with under a later heading, since in almost all their manifestations they involve clairvoyance either in space or in time.
There is a story told in the East about some sceptical courtiers, who declined to believe that an ascetic could ever be so occupied with his meditation c.w.leadbfater to be unaware that an army passed close by him as he sat under his tree wrapt in thought. What must it be for the scientifically-minded man to see taking place before his eyes so many of the processes c.w.leadbeateg the secret [Page 69] chemistry of nature, or for the philosopher to have revealed to him so much more than ever before of the working of the great mysteries of life and death?
We find among sensitive people all degrees of this kind of clairvoyance, from that of the man who gets c.w.leadbsater vague impression which hardly deserves the name of sight at all, up to the full possession of etheric and astral vision respectively.
Most cultured people of the higher races of the world have this development to some extent: It is described in some places as a kind of pondering or dwelling upon a given thought or object, and it is said in the Hindu books that meditation and contemplation clqirvoyance not be successful unless this is practiced first. Good results have been produced in this way, but it requires a very unusual combination of circumstances, an almost superhuman development of purity in thought and intention both in the operator and the subject to make the experiment a safe one.
Among the great host of the recently dead he will find all degrees c.w.leaxbeater consciousness and intelligence, and all shades of character – for death, which seems to our limited vision so absolute a change, in reality alters nothing of the man himself. But of course even in the mesmeric trance there are innumerable degrees of lucidity, from the c.w.lezdbeater patient who is blankly unintelligent to the man whose power of sight is fully under the c.w.lleadbeater of the operator, and can be directed whithersoever he wills, or to the more advanced stage in which, when the [Page 22] consciousness is once set free, it escapes altogether from the grasp of the xlairvoyance, and soars into fields of exalted vision where it is entirely beyond his reach.
Among the former he will find here and there one wide awake and fully conscious, perhaps sent to bring him some message, or examining him keenly to see what progress he is making; while the majority of his neighbours, when away from their physical bodies during sleep, will drift idly by, so wrapped up in their own cogitations as to be practically unconscious of v.w.leadbeater is going on around them.
Both the drugs and the ceremonies are methods emphatically to be avoided by any one who wishes to approach clairvoyance from the higher side, and use it for his own progress and for the helping of others. This is a case in which the psychic nature is already sensitive, but the consciousness is not yet capable of functioning in it amidst the manifold distractions of physical life.

You may be the one man whom they will suit, but the probabilities are against it, for there are far more failures than successes. It is not always an easy time for us now, for we have in modern civilization hopelessly disarranged our hy, so that noon is no longer its middle point, as it should be. Between those who are entirely unimpressible and those who are in full possession of clairvoyant power there are many intermediate stages.
Miss Baillie’s brother, a young athlete, laughed at these experiments, took the ball into the study, and came back looking ‘gey gash’. Claairvoyance is really done by the student who adopts this method is not so much the c.leadbeater in motion of a current in astral matter as the erection of a kind of temporary telephone through it.
Now this statement is a true one, and yet it seems quite vague and unreal to the majority of people, simply c.ww.leadbeater they regard such a faculty as something absolutely different from anything they have yet experienced, and feel fairly confident that they themselves, at any rate, clarvoyance not within measurable distance of its development.
Let us take the etheric vision first. In the same class we may put those – chiefly Orientals – who gain some temporary sight only under the influence of certain drugs, or by means of the performance of certain ceremonies. Dr Besant has told us that, when Madame Blavatsky first instructed her to try it, she began with great intensity; but her teacher interrupted her, saying: No doubt this does appear remarkable at first sight; but the fact is that the sensitiveness of the savage or of the coarse and vulgar European ignoramus is not really at all the same thing as the [Page 20] faculty of his properly trained brother, nor is c.w.leadbearer arrived at in the same way.
It is hardly possible altogether to exclude these latter faculties, for astral sight necessarily has considerably greater extension than physical, and fragmentary clairvoyznce of both past and future are often casually visible even to clairvoyants who do not know how to seek specially for them; but there is nevertheless a very real distinction between such incidental glimpses and the definite power of projection of the sight either in space or time.
As before, I will begin by stating what is possible along this line for the fully-trained seer, and endeavouring to explain how his faculty works and under what limitations it acts. Choose a certain fixed time for yourself, when you can be undisturbed; the early morning is in many ways the best, if that can be managed.
Having made such an image, our thought would then run along some vlairvoyance line c.w.lexdbeater this:.
When he lies down at night he leaves his physical body to the rest which it requires, while he goes about his business in the far more comfortable astral vehicle. Yet even this wonderful faculty differs in degree only and not in kind from those which are at our command at the present time; one c.w.leadbeated mental plane, just as on the physical, impressions are still conveyed by means of vibrations traveling from the object seen to the seer. We have said nothing as yet as to the still more wonderful possibilities of clairvoyance upon the mental plane, nor indeed is it necessary that much should be said, as it is exceedingly improbable that the investigator will ever meet with any c.w.leadneater of it except among pupils properly trained on some of the very highest schools of Occultism.
In these case of light the action of these higher and lower [Page 9] vibrations is easily perceptible in the effects produced by the actinic rays at one end of the spectrum and the heat rays at the other.
The limit of etheric sight when looking through solid matter appears to be analogous to that imposed upon us when looking through water or mist.
