Editorial Reviews

Review

William Hewitt maintains that everyone is born with some degree of psychic ability. That, if they knew how to access and utilize their inborn psychic abilities they could succeed at everything they turned their mind to, from solving everyday problems to enjoying dynamic and fulfilling relationships. Psychic Development For Beginners shows some fast, easy ways to unleash personal psychic force and become a happy, healthy, fully developed human being. These 44 practical exercises will quickly enable the reader to realize a host of spiritual and material benefits, from learning how to contact a spirit guide to alerting oneself of imminent danger with psychic warnings. These exercises are simple, take little time, and they allow the reader to design a personal psychic development program and proceed at their own pace. These exercises are presented along with 28 psychic case studies that illustrate the incredible capabilities at the reader's command -- once they've released their natural psychic potential. Psychic Development For Beginners is a unique and unusual self-help book. -- Midwest Book Review

From the Publisher

For many years I have said one of the goals of Llewellyn is what I call the "democratization of magic." By this I mean that various techniques which put you back in control of your life should be available to everyone. A prime example of this can be found in William W. Hewitt's Psychic Development for Beginners.

With the information in this book you don't have to go to a psychic. Now, you can be your own psychic. You can share the more than three-dozen exercises that will help you develop your psychic abilities. You can even do psychic healing for yourself and others.

This book puts you in control. Do you think you are under psychic attack? You will be able to deal with it. Do you need to communicate with someone who is not near a phone? You can learn telepathy. Would you like to contact spirits? This book shows you how.

Virtually all of the major psychic abilities are not only described, but are fully explained so you can do them. The exercises teaches you the skills, and helps you expand them. You can use them for your own purposes, even for such mundane things as finding a good parking place or waking up on time. But you can also use them to astral travel and heal others.

Whatever your goals in life, you'll find that Psychic Development for Beginners will give you a boost to achieve your desires.

As a SPECIAL OFFER we're including with every copy of this book a card that will allow you to receive a free copy of FATE, the world's leading magazine of the paranormal (new subscribers only). This would cost you $4.95 at the newsstand, so this is a great deal!

The book then explains how visualization improves your psychic skills and performance as it gives you very good exercises to improve your visualization skills.

This book is very easy to read and understand and the excerises in this book are also very easy to practice.

This is one of my favorite metaphysical books. It contains 44 practical exercises that you can use to help develop your psychic abilities, including creating a psychic shield for protection, sensing psychic information just by touching an object, and creating a psychic goal bowl. It can be used by beginners and non-beginners alike. I find that every time I return to it, I learn something new. There are many metaphysical truths lying buried in William Hewitt's words. Very highly recommended.

I readed this book in one sitting . As I read it I try out some of the things he offers. I have been working with the psychic world for a few months on a serious level. I always knew I could do it . I just hide it away. Like so many people do. So when I started I try to find a book that was plain and to the point on the how too.I had read books by John Edwards and Sylvia Brown for years.And I have gotten some good ideas from John Edwards. But I think this book is more to the point for all who are really interested it trying all they can . They all give examples . But this book is more the hands on do it your self type that a person needs who knows they need to take one more step . But what is that step. I borrow this book from a library to see if it was what I thought I wanted . After reading it I am now buying it today . In the book he mentions that you need only one good book in a time frame of say one year to get you started and I would say this is the one good book. I have read MANY books on the subject and so far this by far the easiest to understand and work with.

I simply could not allow myself to go buy other books without commenting on William H. Hewitt's book, Psychic Development for Beginners. It is an excellent book with simple, practical excercises that make meditation and awakening the awareness of one's inner self as easy as following a proven recipe in a cookbook, and it works! The simple undeniable assurance that all ages, genders, nationalities, vocations, etc have psychic abilities is wonderfully refreshing, and releases doubt one may have in the matter. Afterwards practical information creates a sensible understanding of why we have such abilities, and how they can be best used. William H. Hewitt is a humanitarian, and an excellent author. The excercises are reasonable with out any need for special equipment, except your mind. The steps lead to wonderful daily tools, greater abilities and safeguards to help you protect them and yourself from mismanagement. Mr. Hewitt encourages practical daily applications without fear of wearing something or someone's welcome out. The "More practice the better" is encouraged with a lighthearted "be creative and have fun with it" attitude. I have found wonderful tools in my psychic abilities. Thank you Mr. Hewitt for helping me to see that I could programm my subcounscious for an alarmclock which means that now I don't have to worry about power outages, it just works so well! :D And thank you for the Beach of Time, my favorite place now to do a great many things. All the excercises can develop and gradually become more advanced without discouragement, many of my internet friends have read my tiny excerpts and have bought their own copies just for some tidbit of common sense here or there they missed in other books. The excercises and references are easy to relocate.Read more ›

I am so glad I found this book, "Psychic Development for Beginners" by William W. Hewitt, it is an excellent book to read if your interested in your natural psychic abilities or would like to learn more on how to better use your psychic gift. It both confirmed and taught me more about some of the experiences that I have been having and brought me more in tune with myself and my abilities. I have so many of the excerises highlighted and practice them on a daily basis. This book is very easy to read and understand and the excerises in this book are also very easy to practice. All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is wanting to learn more about the gifts that Our Creator has given us. A book I couldn't put down and finished reading in less than 2 days. Very well done William W. Hewitt, I applaud you!!!

Format: Paperback
William Hewitt is a hypnotherapist who trained himself to be psychic. The premise behind his book, Psychic Development for Beginners, is that anyone can train themselves to be psychic. From this empowering and very accessible stance, Hewitt builds a book that includes 44 exercises and nearly thirty "case histories" -- brief, anecdotal tales derived from Hewitt's own life experiences.

Hewitt has a considerable amount of experience that he brings to bear in Psychic Development. Born in 1929, he has been a practicing psychic for nearly forty years. In addition to working as a hypnotherapist, Hewitt is also a lecturer who leads workshops on both hypnotherapy and psychic development. His main experience in communicating his ideas comes from these workshops, and it is very clear from the arrangement of "Psychic Development for Beginners" that the book grew out of Hewitt's classes.

* Hewitt's writing style is heavily influenced by his background in leading workshops. He is clearly a speaker first and a writer second. While this gives Psychic Development a very easy-to-read style, there are times where it feels unfinished and even skeletal.

* Hewitt's teaching style is heavily influenced by his profession as a hypnotherapist, to the extent that many of the exercises default to what amounts to self-hypnosis. The biggest problem with this is that Hewitt uses the self-affirmations in place of actual theory that might allow his readers to understand the mechanics well enough to develop techniques of their own.

* Hewitt's "Psychic Development" falls into the same trap that most "for beginners" books fall into, presenting the material in such simplistic terms that only people with absolutely basic knowledge will be able to find anything relevant in the text.
