Clairvoyance – C. W. Leadbeater

CW Leadbeater - Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is a psychic ability to see things beyond the range of the power of natural vision or vision assisted by technology. It is often referred to as your “sixth sense”.

When we have a clairvoyant experience, we see things in the mind’s eye. It is the faculty we use when we employ our imagination; visualize potential outcomes or even daydream. We use our clairvoyance at work to help us plan projects. We use it at home when we “keep our eyes” on our children. Sometimes when we receive information on this level, it is experienced as a fleeting thought or image. In fact, most people assume that when they use this capability it is just their imagination at work. The truth be told, it is not.

In his book, “Clairvoyance”, Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854-1934) defines clairvoyance as “…the power to see what is hidden from ordinary physical sight” and goes on to say “Clairvoyance means literally nothing more than ‘clear-seeing,’ and it is a word which has been sorely misused…”

This is a manual of the phenomena of Clairvoyance, the mental viewing of things far removed in space and/or time. CW Leadbeater appeals to the fourth dimension, the Akashic record, and the assistance of unseen spirits, as explanations of the phenomena. Students of the occult will find this a satisfying review, but more rationalist minded investigators will find this more of a counter-example of how to research psi. He presents clairvoyance as physical rather than supernatural, and describes its many different manifestations, including unintentional premonitions and ‘seeing’ the past.

CW Leadbeater, a leading figure in the Theosophical Society, first published this book in 1899. The Theosophical Society was established in 1875 with the objective to investigate, study, and explain, mediumistic phenomena.
