Atkinson was a prolific writer, and his many books achieved wide circulation among New Thought devotees and occult practitioners. He published under several pen names, including Magus Incognito, Theodore Sheldon, Theron Q. Dumont, Swami Panchadasi, Yogi Ramacharaka, Swami Bhakta Vishita, and probably other names not identified at present. The works published under the name of William Walker Atkinson generally treat themes related to the mental world, occultism, divination, psychic reality, and mankind’s nature. They constitute a basis for what Atkinson called ‘New Thought’. Due in part to Atkinson’s intense personal secrecy and extensive use of pseudonyms, he is now largely forgotten, despite having obtained mention in past editions of Who’s Who in America, Religious Leaders of America, and several similar publications—and having written more than 100 books in the last 30 years of his life. His works have remained in print more or less continuously since 1900.
Thought Vibration : The Law of Attraction in the Thought World
William Walker atkinson’s ‘thought vibration’ is a classic treatise of new age philosophy. Atkinson examines the nature of mental thought and its power to affect one’s life in a thought-provoking discourse that elucidates the power of positive mental thought. The new thought movement of the early 20th century vehemently believed in the concept of ‘mind over matter,’ and one of the most influential thinkers of this early ‘new age’ philosophy promises to show you how to harness the extraordinary mental powers you already possess.
