Basically, because it's your mind psychic space, imagination, emotions you can change the game to one you can win. A thought form normally manifests to us as a kind of habit, bad or good, that acts as an external shaping context for how we live our lives and see the choices confronting us. The voice of the latter sets in motion waves of sound in the air which radiate from him in all directions, and convey his message to all those who are within hearing, and the distance to which his voice can penetrate depends upon its power and upon the clearness of his enunciation. Reacting in this context means thinking more thoughts resulting form one that was primarily implanted by the that know you better than you know yourself! One very important result of meditation is to begin separating ourselves from identification with our thoughts. Thus the community owes a very real debt of gratitude to the musician who pours forth such helpful influences, for he may affect for good hundreds whom he never saw and will never know upon the physical plane. Unless you're very experienced at this and even then I'm not convinced you can both invent and experience at the same time you're going to have the hardest time actually experiencing it emotionally as a space because you'll be trying to figure out what texture the grass is and whether or not you want a tree just there, etc. Again, all of this can be very difficult and involves a detailed and experienced understanding of how energy works.
The thought is a good and pure one of its kind, for if there were anything base or selfish in the desire it would inevitably show itself in the darkening of the clear orange hue by dull reds, browns, or greys. So I know this world well enough. Absolutely pure affection of course exists; but we very often find it tinged with pride or with selfishness, with jealousy or with animal passion. To exist is not enough; we desire to live intelligently. Counselling often helps, because once someone learns to take ownership of their choices they often find their way back to stability and learn they can increasingly control the effect of these influences. With a touch of the blue of devotion in it, this may express a strong realisation of the universal brotherhood of humanity. It will serve to overcome thought-forms and bring you back to empty space and stillness, where there is only now.
The persons who generated these two thought-forms were both animated by affectionate interest in the victim and deep compassion for his suffering, and so their thought-forms exhibited exactly the same colours, although the outlines are absolutely unlike. An attempt is made in Fig. Some argue that a belief in evil spirits is a product of mental illness and should be treated by medical professionals. The energy of thought is for the good of all and for the furtherance of the Plan of God. If applied to internal thought forms it can be damaging to the person the thought form is attached to. The colour is fully equal to that of Fig. Often circumstances arise which prevent us from giving physical help either by word or deed, however much we may desire to do so; but there is no case in which help by thought may not be given, and no case in which it can fail to produce a definite result.
They were seen simultaneously, arranged exactly as represented, though in the midst of indescribable confusion, so their relative positions have been retained, though in explaining them it will be convenient to take them in reverse order. At the present time observers outside the Theosophical Society are concerning themselves with the fact that emotional changes show their nature by changes of colour in the cloud-like ovoid, or aura, that encompasses all living beings. Hope this helps those looking to read the book with the illustrations. Such a thought-form is capable of acting upon the astral bodies of other men as well as their minds, so that it can not only raise thought within them, but can also stir up their feelings. Here we have a great clear-cut spear or pencil of the pure pale violet which indicates devotion to the highest ideal, and it is outlined and strengthened by an exceedingly fine manifestation of the noblest development of intellect. When a sudden wave of some emotion sweeps over a man, for example, his astral body is thrown into violent agitation, and its original colours are or the time almost obscured by the flush of carmine, of blue, or of scarlet which corresponds with the rate of vibration of that particular emotion. I tried, tried, I felt like floating in the dark Universe, but something invisible prevented me from entering.
A gigantic thought-form hovers over the entire human family, built by men everywhere during the ages, energised by the insane desires and evil inclinations of all that is worst in man's nature, and kept alive by the promptings of his lower desires. Affect Current observed emotional state. Mentally draw the light down into your head and bring it to rest directly between your eyebrows. It must not be forgotten that very far less detail is given in this illustration than in Plate M; for example, each of these points or projections has within it as integral parts, at least the four lines or bands of varying colour which were shown as separate in Plate M, but here they are blended into one shade, and only the general effect of the chord is given. No attempt has been made in this drawing to show the effect of single notes or single chords; each range of mimic rocks represents in size, shape, and colour only the general effect of one of the sections of the piece of music as seen from a distance. Even with a melody so comparatively simple as this there are tints and shades far too finely modulated to be reproduced on any scale at all within our reach; therefore it must be said that each of the short lines expressing a note has a colour of its own, so that although as a whole that outer line gives an impression of blueness, and the one next within it of carmine, each yet varies in every inch of its length; so that what is shown is not a correct reproduction of every tint, but only the general impression. To paint in earth's dull colours the forms clothed in the living light of other worlds is a hard and thankless task; so much the more gratitude is due to those who have attempted it.
It should be understood that this radiating vibration conveys the character of the thought, but not its subject. All creative art will be fostered by this training, and the new art of the future in all departments of creativity, will be rapidly developed as the training proceeds. In the Christian scheme they appear as the seven great archangels, sometimes called the seven spirits before the throne of God. A strong vortex is formed by a feeling of deep sadness. On every plane of His solar system our Logos pours forth His light, His power, His life, and naturally it is on the higher planes that this outpouring of divine strength can be given most fully. But to do this implies knowledge—that knowledge which is power; and in our Western world such knowledge is practically obtainable only through the literature of Theosophy.
Traumatic deaths in battle, accidents, and murders also make it so they do not realize they are dead. Judgment Intact to impaired judgment. If an evil thought, projected with malefic intent, strikes such a body, it can only rebound from it, and it is flung back with all its own energy; it then flies backward along the magnetic line of least resistance, that which it has just traversed, and strikes its projector; he, having matter in his astral and mental bodies similar to that of the thought-form he generated, is thrown into respondent vibrations, and suffers the destructive effects he had intended to cause to another. Some are couched in terms symbolic, others are necessarily blinds, still others express the truth just as it is. The difference in colour between the two is also worthy of note. I joined the group about 15 minutes later than our apointment.
That which takes the image of the thinker. It may often happen that at the moment our friend may be too entirely occupied with his own suffering, or perhaps too much excited, to receive and accept any suggestion from without, but presently a time comes when our thought-form can penetrate and discharge itself, and then assuredly our sympathy will produce its due result. Thought Forms goes much deeper taking you into a spiritual panorama of color, the different levels energy vibrates and more. Yet there is good in the man who generates this second cloud, though as yet it is but partially evolved. It can also remove anything that is outside of them such as a demon or spirit that blocks good out of their life. Ability to identify potentially pathological events e. I had done that because I wanted to touch things, feel the fabric of the couch etc.
Sometimes this even works with strangers. In just the same way the forceful thought will carry very much further than the weak and undecided thought; but clearness and definiteness are of even greater importance than strength. The selfish words, sent forth with strong intent, build up a wall of separation. The name is also used by other churches which practice Christianity to indicate a form of banishing a evil spirit. It is very important to remove yourself out of duality so that you may not feed two different sides of the same illusion with thoughts.
