Your Vivid Creative Fancy Evokes Illusive Gurus & Chelas

Master Koot Hoomi wrote to Mrs. Laura Holloway:

"You cannot acquire psychic power until the causes of psychic debility are removed. . . . You have scarcely learned the elements of self-control in psychism. . . . Your vivid creative fancy [imagination] evokes illusive Gurus and chelas, and puts into their mouths words coined the instant before in the mint of your mind, unknown to yourself. The false appears as real, as the true, and you have no exact method of detection, since you are yet prone to force your communications to agree with your preconceptions...." 

This rationale given by the Master can explain the experiences of many individuals who after H.P. Blavatsky's death claimed to be in contact with her Masters.  

Even during H.P.B's lifetime she had sounded the warning in these words:

"Great are the desecrations to which the names of two of the Masters have been subjected. There is hardly a medium who has not claimed to have seen them."  

H.P.B. and the Mahatmas also warned about "imitations of Occultism and Theosophy" and "disfigured" expositions of Theosophy. 

H.P.B. and the Masters also corrected "wild and fanciful speculation" and "erroneous notions" about Theosophy that were distorting the original teachings that they had given. 

Concerning certain "false ideas" grafted onto Theosophy, Madame Blavatsky penned the following: 

"Nothing is more dangerous to Esoteric Truth than the garbled and distorted versions disfigured to suit the prejudices and tastes of men in general." 

On at least two occasions, Master Koot Hoomi warned against claims that he was communicating through some psychic.

In 1884, he wrote:

"You ask me if you can tell Miss Arundale what I told you thro' Mrs. 
H[olloway]. . . . . .[But] I have never . . . communicated with you
or any one else thro' her. . . . . She is an excellent but quite
undeveloped clairvoyante. . . . ." 

And in 1888, again the Master warned:

"Since 1885 I have not written, nor caused to be written save thro' her [H.P. Blavatsky's ] agency, direct or remote, a letter or line to anybody in Europe or America, nor communicated orally with, or thro' any third party.  THEOSOPHISTS SHOULD LEARN IT.  . You will understand later the significance of this declaration so keep it in mind. Her [HPB's] fidelity to our work being constant, and her sufferings having come upon her thro' it, neither I nor either of my Brother associates will desert or supplant her." caps added.
