Clarividencia, literalmente, no significa
otra cosa que "ver con claridad", siendo una
palabra que ha sido muy mal aplicada y
degradada, hasta el punto de empleársela para
describir las tretas de un saltimbanqui en un
espectáculo de feria. Aun en un sentido más
restringido abarca una gran variedad de
fenómenos que difieren tanto en carácter, que
no es fácil dar una definición de la palabra
que a la vez sea exacta y sucinta. Ha sido
llamada "visión espiritual", pero no hay
interpretation más errónea que ésta, pues en
la mayor parte de los casos no existe facultad
alguna relacionada con ella, que tenga el
menor derecho a honrarse con nombre tan

Al objeto de este trabajo podríamos quizá
definirla como el poder de ver lo que se halla
oculto a la mirada física ordinaria. Conviene
igualmente exponer desde luego que con
mucha frecuencia (aunque de ningún modo

First words
Clairvoyance means literally nothing more than "clear seeing", and it is a word which has been sorely misused, and even degraded so far as to be employed to describe the trickery of a mountebank in a variety show.

Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854-1934), English clergyman and theosophical author, contributed to world thought mostly through his work as an alleged clairvoyant. His uncle, was the prominent Anglican clergyman, William Wolfe Capes. By his uncle's influence, Leadbeater was ordained an Anglican priest in 1879 at Farnham, by the Bishop of Winchester. His interest in occultism was stimulated by A. P. Sinnett's Occult World, and he joined the Theosophical Society in 1883. The next year he met Helena Petrovna Blavatsky when she came to London. At this time he was the recipient of a few Mahatma letters which influenced him to go to India, where he arrived at Adyar in 1884. This was the start of a long career in the Theosophical Society. Among Leadbeater's famous works are: The Astral Plane (1895), Reincarnation (1898), and A Textbook of Theosophy (1912). He had a close friendship with Annie Besant (1847-1933), starting in 1895. Annie later is said to have allowed her occult powers to diminish, while Leadbeater's grew stronger. Together they wrote: Thought Forms (1901) and Occult Chemistry: Clairvoyant Observations on the Chemical Elements (1919).

First published in 1899, Clairvoyance is Charles Leadbeater's inspiring yet matter-of-fact handbook on the perception of what's beyond the normal human range of sight and sound. This practice constitutes clairvoyant vision, since one must use one's astral senses to attain such new information. After a rundown of different types of clairvoyance, Leadbeater provides the reader with a path to develop his or her own clairvoyance.… (more)
