First in a Series of Bios of Metaphysical Teachers

June 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 211

One of the most important parts of the field of metaphysics in general is of course those that teach it to other people. These are the people responsible for founding the concepts that have made the field of metaphysics what it is today. And even though it all seems remotely new, these insights have been developing for well over a hundred years.

These Metaphysical Teachers have processed a large body of knowledge in the field and have shared their insights with the world. They have also made great strides in the development of the teachings that are still being used today in metaphysics.

Here, you will be introduced to some of the most important founders and teachers that brought about metaphysics. These individuals will be introduced to you as follows:

  • Wallace D. Wattles
  • Elizabeth Towne
  • Charles Haanel
  • Robert Collier
  • Genevieve Behrend

You will be introduced to each of these remarkable individuals weekly in an article and the contributions that they made in the field of metaphysics in general. Not all of them have had the same sort of contributions, and many of them have had very different ideas as well. But, they all have played an undeniably important role in the development of the field.

If you are interested in metaphysics at all, learning about these individuals is unavoidable. If you had to choose teachers to research, these metaphysical teachers can tell you the most about the field and where it actually came from, as well as some of the concepts behind it, because some of their teachings are still in fact used today.

This is the first in the series of introductions of Metaphysical Teachers. The first in the series is one of my favorite metaphysical teachers. Meet Wallace D. Wattles, a pioneer in Metaphysics and the New Thought Movement.

Wallace Delois Wattles wrote a number of books The Science of Getting Rich, The Science of Being Great, The Science of Being Well, and a novel, Hellfire Harrison, short stories as well as several articles, but it is for his prosperity classic, The Science of Getting Rich that he is best known.

Wallace D. Wattles (1860 - 1911) came right around the same time as Charles Haanel and was yet another great, incredibly revolutionary teacher who paved the way for the formation of the metaphysical field in general. Though his life was much shorter, his contribution was not much less than Haanel's.

Wattles was also a New Thought writer, and his ideas were directed specifically toward the area of self-help, specifically in the area of financial success and well-being. His ideas are actually still used today in self-help and metaphysical teachings.

Wattles is known for a great work, just like Haanel. His most famous work is called The Science of Getting Rich. It was actually released one year before his untimely and unexpected death. This book was centered on the idea of learning how to become wealthy through New Thought and mental development.

Mr. Wattles was not known just for his writings, though. He was also quite well known for his speaking. He lectured to New Thought followers all over and eventually took up an idea known Christian Socialism. This became his trademark idea, and he preached on it to Christians all over.

Wallace Wattles was also known for being living proof of his teachings. He was not just a teacher, but he was a follower as well. Wattles followed and tested everything that he taught his listeners and readers. He did this right up until the time he died.

And obviously his ideas worked because Wattles lived a very successful life in literally every area. He was healthy, happy and quite wealthy as well. This led him to stress the fact that his teachings actually worked.

Wallace D. Wattles was not just a teacher of some of the first metaphysical ideas that lasted through to today. He was also living proof that the ideas he was teaching to people were actually working because he followed them.

Wallace D. Wattles was a successful writer he wrote several books. His articles were published in "Nautilus" magazine he was in almost every issue in the early 1900's until his death in 1911. Mr. Wattles most noted work was published in 1910 "The Science of Getting Rich, which I believe is the companion book to "The Science of Being Great. He wrote books on several subjects' health, relationships, love. He did write fiction he wrote short stories and a novel.

Mr. Wattles was a student reading and studying religions and philosophers of the world. He was a masterful writer; he used a few words that spoke volumes. If you haven't read his prosperity classic, The Science of Getting Rich, I highly recommend it. It may just change your life, as it has so many others.

"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

A thought, in this substance, produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.

In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; he must form a clear mental picture of the things he wants, and do, with faith and purpose, all that can be done each day, doing each separate thing in an efficient manner."
