Psychic & Clairvoyance

The Boy Who Saw True by Anonymous

Product Information

Information: 248 pages, paperback

They say: The Boy who saw true comes into a totally different category and differs materially from all the hundreds of books I have read on Spiritualism and kindred subjects,' writes Cyril Scott, the well-known occultist, in his preface to this unusual book. 'Not one of them has ever displayed the characteristics of this highly diverting human document, with its naive candours, its drolleries, its unconscious humour, its oscillations between the ridiculous and the exalted, and its power to convince, for the very reason that the young diarist never set out with the intention of carrying conviction. Here was a precocious young boy born with clairvoyance who could see auras and spirits, yet failed to realise that other people were not similarly gifted. In consequence he was misunderstood and had to suffer many indignities. Apart from this his diary is of interest in that it reveals the thoughts, emotions and perplexities of a Victorian youngster brought up a little prior to the 'naughty nineties.'

I started reading this expecting a diary literally of this young boy seeing spirits, not at all so. Full of humour and of life in the 1890's of how the middle classes lived. From the way he sees 'Lights' (Auras) to whom he believes to be 'Jesus' keeping the reader wanting more. Remembering that in the 1890's Spiritualism was totally frowned upon and totally alien too, this young boy takes an awful lot of risks but sticks to his diary nonetheless. His parent's particularly his mother truly believed he had a very vivid imagination and more than once the doctor was sent for only to be blamed on his weak heart and more trivial matters. His teacher was his saviour, helping the young boy throughout. Reincarnation explained in excellent detail and so easily understood, (because it was explained to a young boy) and also easily explained the 'spirit world'. A tribute to the young boy who stuck to his beliefs.
