"The Development of Seership presents an occult subject and idea to the masses, attempting to teach the reader to reach higher planes, search the inner eye, and attempt to become clairvoyant. Atkinson, as Vishita, lays out Lessons that take the reader through the steps of developing a mystic sense, reading and interpreting the future, communing with the afterlife, and using clairvoyant knowledge for good. SWAMI BHAKA VISHITA is one of three Hindu aliases and pen names of American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862-1932), editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books under numerous pseudonyms, including 'Yogi,' some of which are likely still unknown today." [Amazon] Please see picture for a complete Table of Contents.
