T. Stead That Aaybody Was Plawaas
Cam las the Oecmlt A raw wt tbm Slaa
pler Iastrwationa Easily Understood.
- William T. Stead, author, journalist,
theosophist and general student of all
that is odd, now announces that be has
received by the means of automatic
writing from a very well known spirit
the information that every living per
son has what is called the sixth sense.
In other words, we are all mediums,
contrary to tbe general supposition,
even among the advanced disciples of
Tbe message or communication is
given to the -world through Editor
Stead, who for tbe time being is under
the guidance of this feminine control.
the real author of tbe statements being
known as Julia. Her messages have
been coming at intervals for five years
and among the students of tbe occult
are regarded as absolutely true. That is
why Mr. Stead lays so much importance
upon them. It is for this reason -he
holds that the communication between
the inhabitants of the world and those
who have passed away can be much
more free if only people will have it
that way. In the message Julia says :
"What I have to tell you is that all
those who really wish to have the sixth
sense, or whatever yon may choose to
term it, so developed that they can at
will become sensibly or to their senses
cognizant of the reality of the existence
of the beings who encompass them
about can acquire the gift or faculty if
tney will but adapt themselves to the
laws of the region into which they wish
to penetrate. It is a potentiality of the
universal Human race. Nor is it only
human. Many animals have the open
eye. They see when their owners are
blind. But you can see if you choose.
It rests with yourselves.
"There is no short cut to the sixth
sense. There may be something like it
in mesmerism and hypnotism, but that
is not at all what I mean. What is pos
sible is for every child of man to be
come what you call normally clairvoy
antthat is, for any one to possess
himself of the power of seeing and
hearing, as plainly as he sees and bears
material things, the invisible forms
and voices that surround him.
"Tbe power is one that ought to be
under control. There will be only harm
done if you do not shut at will the clair
voyant eye. Imagine the mischief that
would Happen if when life and death
hung on the absolute concentration of
all faculties on the subject immediately
before you, if at the supreme moment
yon were to see tbe whole phantasma
goria or borderland pass between you
and the point of exclusive interest. If
you cannot control your sixth sense, yon
had better not acquire it. It is much
better to do without it than to be con
trolled by it
" Vou should have the sense at com'
mand when you need it, as yon have
your microscope or your telescope, but
better have neither if you are to be
oompulsorily doomed at other will than
yours to interrupt the work of life by a
spectacle of the infinitely little or the
infinitely remote. Man should always
be master of his senses, especially of
tne sixth sense, as it is called. "
In her further statements to Mr. Stead
Julia goes on to say that the investigator
must always be simple and not to be
constantly thinking of himself. In
other words, self consciousness must be
avoided, or it will play havoo with the
chances of success. All one's mental
faculties are needed. Everything must
oe examined and tested without preiu
dice and without partiality. Nothing
can oe achieved without time and pa
The first thing to be done to see the
invisible ones, Julia says, is to be very
still and to wait. When quite still and
passive, close your eyes and think of
the one whom you wish to see. If it is
a friend still alive in tbe body, it will
help you if at tbe same time, although
that is not essential, ha or she be also
passive and alone. When you have two
spirits in accord, both seeking the same
thing, the difficulties are less, but you
must be agreed in heart and soul. If
you could keep the concentrated quiet
attention lor a longer period than five
minutes without becoming tired, then
you bad better do so. At no time, bow-
ever, force yourself, for a strain means
failure. - -
If in this way, Julia declares, one
succeeds in acquiring success, it is ac
quired forever. There will be no more
parting between the one who has gained
bis object and the spirit world. The
greatest danger is that the sixth sense
may control the individual instead of
being in itself controlled. New York
