The thickness of a wall, or the number of walls intervening between the observer and the object, would make a great deal of difference to the clearness of the etheric sight; they would make no difference whatever to the astral sight, clairvoyancf on the astral plane they would not intervene between the observer and the object.

The most secret places are open to his gaze, and intervening obstacles have no existence for him, because of the change in his point of view; so that if we grant him the power of moving about in the astral body he can without difficulty go anywhere and see anything within the limits of the planet.

When there is anything hindering our progress it is always the lower self which stands in the way of the Great Self. In this latter case obviously the subject clairvoyaance not enough will to form a tube for himself, and the operator, though possessed of the necessary will-power, is not clairvoyant, or he could see through his own tube without needing help. To him those who are gone from this plane are dead no longer, but living and within reach for a long time to come; for him many of the conceptions of religion c.w.leasbeater no longer matters clairvpyance faith, but of knowledge.

How Clairvoyance Is Developed – Concentration – Meditation | Theosophists

A striking instance, which I have described before, arises in my mind as apposite. To this there can be no possible objection; yet the man who tries to do even this much would do well to acquaint himself thoroughly with the literature of the subject, for there must always remain a certain element of danger in playing, even with the noblest intentions, with forces which you do not understand, clairfoyance to you are still abnormal forces.

They differ so widely both in character and in degree that it is not very easy to decide how they can most satisfactorily be classified. It may be remembered that the poet Tennyson tells us that he was able by the recitation of his own name many times in rapid succession to pass into another condition of consciousness. It coairvoyance written to a gentleman who communicated to him certain strange experiences he had when passing from under the effect of anaesthetics.

Clairvoyance by C. W. Leadbeater

Naturally a seer whose consciousness did not range higher than the astral plane – who employed therefore one of the earlier methods of seeing – would not be able to find a person upon the [devachanic] mental plane at all; yet even he would at least be able to tell that the man sought for was upon that plane, from the mere fact that the striking of the chord as far up as the astral level produced no response. Some have more in one direction, and some in another, according to the line along which each has worked most in past lives.

The truth is that the whole Theosophical system hangs together so closely, and its various parts are so interdependent, that to give a full explanation of every term used would necessitate an exhaustive treatise on Theosophy as a preface even to this short account of clairvoyance.

The story is related of a seer who is stated to have resided in the neighbourhood of Philadelphia, in America.

Our ordinary three-dimensional sight enables us to see at once every point of the interior of a two-dimensional figure, such as a square, but in order to do that the square must be within a reasonable distance from our eyes; the mere additional dimension will avail a man in London but little in his endeavour to examine a square in Calcutta.

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. Examples of this type are constantly to be found, especially among those who advertise themselves as “test and business clairvoyance”. Such vagaries are explicable in various ways, but principally as effects of some partial astral development, for it will be found that the sensitive parts of the body almost invariably correspond with one or other of the chakramsor centres of vitality in the astral body.

But to make that fact of any use to them down here in the physical body, two changes are usually necessary: The ceremonialist sometimes hypnotizes himself by his repetitions, and in that condition becomes to some extent clairvoyant; more often he simply reduces himself to a passive condition in which some other entity can obsess him and speak through him.

To this the reply must be a conditional affirmative. In so small a work as this I have no space for that; such people must study the many books containing lists of cases, or make experiments for themselves along mesmeric lines. I have seen something of this, and also of the practices of the Obeah or Voodoo votaries among the Negroes; but these latter are usually connected with magical ceremonies, loathsome, indecent, horrible, such as none of us would dream of touching for any purpose, whatever results might be promised to us.

c.w.leaadbeater Cases differ so widely that it is impossible to give to this question any answer that will be universally applicable. In the case of another subdivision of them the solitary case has been the seeing of an apparition most commonly of some friend or relative at the point of death.

We have the habit of calling all our exercises of that sort by the general name of meditation, though it is appropriate only to some clarivoyance them.


After death, when it withdraws entirely from the dense body, it would be clearly visible to him, and he would frequently see it hovering over newly-made graves as he passed through a church yard or cemetery. But of course even in the mesmeric trance there are innumerable degrees of lucidity, from the ordinary patient who is blankly unintelligent to the man whose power of sight is fully under the control 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 magnetizer, and soars into fields of exalted vision where it is entirely beyond his reach.

If he will learn what there really is to be seen with astral and etheric sight, and what their respective limitations are, he will then have, as it were, a standard by which to measure the cases which he observes. But even this is by no means all that it gives to its possessor. There remains, however, an irresolvable residuum of cases in which a solitary instance occurs of the exercise of undoubted clairvoyance, while yet the occasion seems to us wholly trivial and unimportant.

It shall flow into me to the uttermost degree in which I am capable of receiving it. For example, one of my dearest friends has all his life had the power to see the atomic ether and atomic astral matter, and to recognize their structure, alike in darkness or in light, as interpenetrating everything else; yet he has only rarely seen entities whose bodies are composed of the much more obvious lower ethers or denser astral matter, and at any rate is certainly not permanently able to see them.

In c.w.leadbeatter with the phenomena, then, we will arrange them rather according to the capacity of the sight employed than to the plane upon which it is exercised, so that we may group instances of clairvoyance under some such headings as these: Have I succeeded so far in doing this?

It is usual to begin the practice of concentration with simple things.

Such a line is established, be it understood, not by a direct projection through space of astral matter, but by such action upon a line or rather many lines of particles of that matter as will render them capable of forming a conductor for vibrations of the character required.

She lent it to Miss Leslie, who saw a large square, old-fashioned red sofa covered with muslin, which she found in the next country-house she visited.
