In these days when the phrase 'extra-sensory perception' has become almost a by-word, our problem is not so much to discuss it, which is now relatively fruitless, but to develop it. It is really less a matter of development than of rendering explicit what is actually implicit. Just as everyone is moved by the spark of life without in most cases being aware of the direct mechanisms involved, so every man and woman possesses some latent capacity for extra-sensory perception. Some more, some less.
The major contribution of this book is not so much slanted in the direction of prediction of what is yet to come, but to facilitate the growth and expression of this inner psycho-spiritual ability. To this extent, any and all systems of divination may be considered useful. Amongst the more commonly used methods are the Tarot cards, astrology, palmistry, graphology, and many others. The method to be described here, geomancy, is favoured above all others because it is basically so simple to operate. One can use it quickly to obtain a simple 'yes' or 'no' answer. With sufficient practice, enough skill can be developed to provide considerable amplification of the first straight answer.
