Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers

Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers by William Walker Atkinson and edited by Clint Marsh is a reprint of the lessons that “Swami Panchadasi” wrote almost 100 years ago. It is still quite relatable though and brings wisdom into this field of metaphysics.

Book Description
“Curious about past-time clairvoyance and clairvoyance of distant scenes? Interested in developing your astral senses and gaining personal psychic influence over others? Then join Swami Panchadasi for twenty lessons in developing the outstanding powers of mentalism!

Prepare for your own adventure into worlds beyond our everyday perceptions with Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers.

First published in 1916, this metaphysical classic by occultism pioneer William Walker Atkinson’s guru Swami Panchadasi (who, it turns out, was actually Atkinson writing under a pseudonym) offers training for anyone to master a range of telepathic talents. From crystal gazing to clairvoyant reverie, psychic healing to astral travel, transference, and psychometry, the lessons are sure to delight student and adept alike.

The introduction by Clint Marsh, author of The Mentalist’s Handbook, takes us into the strange and multi-faceted life of William Walker Atkinson, a turn-of-the-century occultist, and a real Guru’s guru! A powerful book of knowledge, Clairvoyance and Occult Powers will confound and enchant readers today as it did nearly 100 years ago. ” – Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers

My Thoughts
Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers is essentially a reprint of the works by Swami Panchadasi. The lessons included are all an enjoyable read for anyone wanting to learn more about these fields. The lessons mainly include clairvoyance senses, psychometry, crystal gazing, psychic influence and psychic healing.

All of the chapters included in the book may not be something that everyone wants to read fully, and that is okay. You can choose to pick which topics are of interest and just read those.

For me, I enjoyed the lesson about crystal ball gazing the most. It is something I’ve always been interested in but seemed to lack the skill to actually do it. After reading the information in the book, I’ve decided to give it another try. Hopefully the tips I read will help.

Overall, I found this to be an insightful book filled with good tips and stories on each of the topics discussed. It is a great book and I recommend it to anyone who has interest in clairvoyance.

* Thank you to the publisher of Swami Panchadasi’s Clairvoyance and Occult Powers, Weiser Books, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
