About the Author

William Walker Atkinson (1862–1932) was a pivotal figure in the early 20th century's New Thought movement, a philosophy that espouses mind-over-matter principles and the power of positive thinking. Atkinson pursued a career in law, becoming a successful attorney. However, his intense workload led to a physical and mental breakdown, and his search for recovery catalyzed his interest in the power of the mind and alternative and spiritual healing methods. Atkinson's fascination with the esoteric, particularly the harnessing of one's personal psychic abilities, was reflected in his writing, including works such as 'Clairvoyance and Occult Powers' (1916). An adept at using pseudonyms, he authored numerous books under names such as Yogi Ramacharaka, Theron Q. Dumont, and Swami Panchadasi, catering to a diverse readership interested in themes ranging from eastern spirituality to self-help and the mystical. His literary style combined didactic instruction with an approachable narrative, aiming to make complex spiritual concepts accessible to the Western audience. Atkinson's contribution to the New Thought movement and modern spirituality is marked by his synthesis of thought systems, the promotion of self-empowerment, and his influence on subsequent generations of metaphysical authors and thinkers.
