Book Description:
THOUGHT FORMS: A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation, is based on the idea that ‘thoughts are things’ and that a persons emotions emit colorful auras of pattern and form. Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant attempt to help us conceive this truth by describing their clairvoyant observations to painters who produced the 58 illustrations contained in the book and then by providing their interpretations of those illustrations.

They wrote that, “It is well for us ever to bear in mind that there is a hidden side to life—that each act and word and thought has its consequence in the unseen world which is always so near to us, and that usually these unseen results are of infinitely greater importance than those which are visible to all upon the physical plane.”

Thought Forms is considered to have had a major influence on abstract artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Hilma Af Klint, and Paul Klee.

Annie Besant was a well respected orator, writer, social rights activist, and president of the Theosophical Society based in Adyar, Chennai, India from 1907 to her death in 1933. Charles Webster Leadbeater was known for his writings, his clairvoyant observations, and his raising and educating of Jiddu Krishnamurti. Leadbeater went on to write over 60 books and pamphlets and gave lectures until his death in 1934.
