William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932) was a prolific writer. His works treat themes related to the mental world, occultism, divination, psychic reality, and mankind's nature.
"THERE EXISTS IN NATURE A DYNAMIC MENTAL PRINCIPLE—A MIND-POWER—PERVADING ALL SPACE—IMMANENT IN ALL THINGS—MANIFESTING IN AN INFINITE VARIETY OF FORMS, DEGREES, AND PHASES. I hold that this energy, or force, or dynamic principle, is no respecter of persons. Its service, like that of the sun and rain, and all natural forces, is open to all—just and unjust; good and bad; high and low; rich and poor. It responds to the proper efforts, no matter by whom exerted, or for what purpose called into effect. But the proper effort must be exerted, consciously or unconsciously, else there will be no operation of the force." (Extract)
Un pensamiento intenso o constante nos convertirá en el centro de atracción de las ondas correspondientes de los demás. Lo semejante atrae a lo semejante en el Mundo del Pensamiento; “cosecharéis lo que hayáis sembrado”. Los pájaros de plumaje parecido vuelan juntos en el mundo del pensamiento; y las maldiciones, como las gallinas, vienen a casa a cocinarse, además de traer a sus amigos con ellas.
Each man's character has its inner phase consisting of the accumulated impressions of the past which seek to manifest in the present. And, likewise, the character of each[Pg 30] man manifests in an outer phase of form, mark, and stamp of personality. There are no two characters precisely alike. There is an infinite possibility of combination of the elements that go to make up character. This is accordance with what appears to be a universal law of nature, for there are no two blades of grass exactly alike, nor two grains of sand bearing an exact resemblance to each other. Nature seems to seek after and to manifest variety of form and quality. But, still, just as we may classify all things, animate and inanimate, into general classes and then into subordinate ones—each genus and each species having its particular characteristics, qualities and attributes, so we may, and do, classify human character into general classes and then into particular subdivisions into which each individual is found to fit. This fact makes it possible for us to study Human Nature as a science.
This work can help you tap the latent powers of your potent mind with lessons and exercises on:
- the subtle current of thought waves
- influence through suggestion
- mental vibrations conveyed by the eye
- the affect of the magnetic gaze on animals
- why you must avoid using your new powers to satisfy vulgar curiosity
In other words, "How to Read Human Nature" is a pioneering New Thought work on how to read people based on physical appearance and attributes.
William Walker Atkinson (1862–1932) was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement.
A very succinct book, however, extremely rich in content and essential practical notes in everything related to the development of our superior innate talents.
William Walker Atkinson is not only a great connoisseur of the Mental Sciences, but he is also a scientist of the most experienced and reveals this character in all his writings.
Many of the practices and exercises he taught, I had the grateful opportunity to test them and testify to the high value in results they bring us. Exercises that I tested over several years and that I teach today with great mastery.
For this reason, as a translator and digitizer of this and many of Atkinson's works, I made a point of placing a Practical Supplement with exercises explained and detailed in its benefits and obstacles, so that the sincere seeker remains persevering and determined throughout his inner journey.
