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)

Thought Forms (7)

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)

Thought Forms (5)

Usually each definite thought creates a new thought-form; but if a thought-form of the same nature is already hovering round the thinker, under certain circumstances a new thought on the same subject, instead of creating a new form, coalesces with and strengthens the old one, so that by long brooding over the same subject a … Continue reading Thought Forms (5)

Thought Forms (4)

It is well known that the thought-form of an idea may be projected onto a blank paper, and there become visible to a hypnotised person. 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)

Thought Forms (1)

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)

Thought Waves (2)

It is not too much to say that one who harbours impure or evil thoughts thereby spreads moral contagion among his fellow men. Bearing in mind that large numbers of people have within them latent germs of evil, germs which may never bear fruit unless some force from without plays upon them and stirs them … Continue reading Thought Waves (2)

The Mental Plane (11)

Let us now consider, in this light, the relations between the higher and lower mind and their action on the brain. The mind, Manas, the Thinker is one, and is the Self in the causal body; it is the source of innumerable energies, of vibrations of innumerable kinds. These it sends out, raying outwards from … Continue reading The Mental Plane (11)

The Mental Plane (10)

A very little reflection will convince anyone how little material, suitable for the growth of this lofty body, he affords by his daily life; hence the slowness of evolution, the little progress made. The Thinker should have more of himself to put out in each successive life, and, when this is the case, evolution goes … Continue reading The Mental Plane (10)

The Mental Plane (7)

We have seen that the mental body is so closely mingled with the astral, that they act as a single body, but the dawning mental faculties add to the astral passions a certain strength and quality not apparent in them when they work as purely animal qualities. The impressions made on the mental body are … Continue reading The Mental Plane (7)

The Mental Plane (6)

Let us now turn to the study of the Thinker and his vesture as they are found in men on earth. The body of the consciousness, conditioning it in the four lower subdivisions of the mental plane—the mental body, as we term it —is formed of combinations of the matter of these subdivisions. The Thinker, … Continue reading The Mental Plane (6)

The Mental Plane (4)

On the mental plane, in both its great divisions, exist numberless Intelligences, whose lowest bodies are formed of the luminous matter and elemental essence of the plane—Shining Ones who guide the processes of natural order, overlooking the hosts of lower entities before spoken of, and yielding submission in their several hierarchies to their great overlords … Continue reading The Mental Plane (4)

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)

The Mental Plane (1)

The mental plane, as its name implies, is that which belongs to consciousness working as thought; not of the mind as it works through the brain, but as it works in its own world, unencumbered with physical spirit-matter. This world is the world of the real man. The word ‘‘ man ” comes from the … Continue reading The Mental Plane (1)

The Astral Senses (Part 5)

Again, by means of clairaudience, the person may hear the things of the astral world, past as well as present, and in rare cases, the future. The explanation is the same in each case— merely the receiving of vibrations on the astral plane instead of on the physical plane. In the same way, the astral … Continue reading The Astral Senses (Part 5)

The Astral Senses (Part 2)

Science tells us that of all the five senses, that of Touch or Feeling was the original— the fundamental sense. All the rest are held to be but modifications of, and specialized forms of, this original sense of feeling. I am telling you this not merely in the way of interesting and instructive scientific information, … Continue reading The Astral Senses (Part 2)
