Thought Forms (9)

Perhaps the supreme example of a thought-form is that known in the Christian Church as the Angel of the Presence. This is not a member of the kingdom of the Angels, but a thought-form of the Christ, wearing His likeness and being an extension of the consciousness of the Christ Himself. It is by means … Continue reading Thought Forms (9)

There is, however, a type of clairvoyance rather more advanced than ordinary clairvoyance, necessitating a certain amount of control upon the mental plane. It is necessary to retain so much hold over a newly created thought-form as will render it possible to receive impressions by means of it. Such impressions as were made upon the … Continue reading Thought Forms (8)

The student will readily perceive that a thought-form can affect another person only if in the aura of that person there are materials capable of responding sympathetically to the vibration of the thought-form. In cases where the vibrations of the thought-form are outside the limits within which the person’s aura is capable of vibrating, the … Continue reading Thought Forms (7)

The difference between the effect of a thought-wave and that of a thought-form is that the thought-wave, does not produce a definite complete idea, but tends to produce a thought as the same character as itself; a thought-wave is thus much less definite in its action, but reaches a far wider circle. A thought-form on … Continue reading Thought Forms (6)

Or it may be made so objective that the hypnotised person will see and feel it as though it were an actual physical object. Many thought-forms exist, more or less … Continue reading Thought Forms (4)

Abstract ideas usually represent themselves by all kinds of perfect and most beautiful geometrical forms. It should be remembered in this connection that the merest abstractions to us down here become definite facts, on the mental plane. The strength of thought and emotion determines the size of the thought-form as well as its duration as … Continue reading Thought Forms (3)

A thought, then, as stated, becomes for the time a kind of living creature; the thought-force is the soul, the elemental essence of the body. These thought-forms are called elementals, or sometimes artificial elementals. The principles underlying the production of all thought-forms are: [1] Quality of thought determines colour [2] Nature of thought determines form … Continue reading Thought Forms (2)

We come now to consider the second effect produced when a man uses his mental body in thinking, viz., the formation of thought forms. As we have seen, a thought gives rise to a set of vibrations in the matter of the mental body. Under this impulse the mental body throws off a vibrating portion … Continue reading Thought Forms (1)

The Mental Plane (3)

The mental plane is that which reflects the Universal Mind in Nature, the plane which in our little system corresponds with that of the Great Mind in the Cosmos. In its higher regions exist all the archetypal ideas which are now in course of concrete evolution; in its lower these are worked out into successive … Continue reading The Mental Plane (3)
