Thoughts Create Forms
Nancy B. Detweiler
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” (I Corinthians 13:11-13)
At the present time, most of us cannot view the energy fields around ourselves, others, or within nature. For that reason, we are unaware of just how powerful our thoughts and emotions are. We do not know the energy of our thoughts and emotions actually manifest as shapes or forms within both our own auric field as well as the auric fields of others. These thought-forms also register within the invisible creative ethers in which all life exists. This is one reason being in a large city feels much more restrictive than being in the countryside with few people.
A clairvoyant can see the energetic creations of our thoughts and emotions. Most of us have exclaimed---usually to someone close to us---“you read my mind … I was just thinking the very same thing.” We have been amazed at the synchronicities that occur in our lives. We think of someone … and they call or we run into them in the grocery store.
Jesus demonstrated this ability to communicate on the inner levels in Luke 9:46-48. He could discern the real reason his disciples were arguing. “Jesus, aware of their inner thoughts ……” Another example of Jesus’ capacity to communicate on the inner levels is found in Luke 19:1-10. Zacchaeus, a wealthy tax collector, wanted to see who Jesus was. Because he was too short to see over the crowd, he climbed a sycamore tree and watched as Jesus approached. Remember Zacchaeus and Jesus had not met previously. “When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today.’” Jesus knew his name and perceived Zacchaeus’ desire to know him.
We have experienced being in a room of people when an angry person entered. The atmosphere of the room immediately changed---even if the angry person said nothing. Communication took place on the invisible level. My sister, who possesses deep attunement to animals, states animals can read our thoughts because they see the pictures in our auric field. They communicate with us on the level of the pictures formed by our emotions and thoughts.
The “childish thoughts” in I Corinthians 13 are typical of the way we think and feel, while believing no one else discerns those thoughts and feelings. When we awaken to higher levels of consciousness---when we become a spiritual adult---we perceive that the energy of our thoughts and feelings manifests as form on the inner planes. These forms impact us and the world around us, just as the angry person can impact the atmosphere of an entire room. Let’s look at some actual thought-emotional forms seen by a clairvoyant. I am taking all these examples from the book entitled Thought-Forms, by Annie Besant & C.W. Leadbeater. This book may be ordered from: http://www.questbooks.net/title.cfm?bookid=97
We can see how this angry energy can fill a room even though the individual is totally unaware of what he is doing to those around him. Childish thoughts are oblivious to the impact emotions and thoughts have upon others.
In contrast, we have all experienced a loving person walking into the room and seen how people immediately begin moving in his/her direction.
Jesus could easily heal long distance with a laser like highly developed, focused thought form and pure emotions.
NOTE the difference between an individual sending unconditional love to all in the room or on the planet … and … the selfish, grasping love most likely sent to only one person. Unconditional love expects nothing in return and is directed outward from the heart with no strings attached. Childish love is grasping for self-gratification … note how the energy of grasping love turns back toward the self. This grasping love will be full of demands on the object of that love. Grasping love is childish and has little to do with divine love. The spiritual adult knows the difference and consciously intends unconditional love for all.
Some of the most beautiful and comforting thought-forms relate to devotion.
When we pause to send devotion to our I AM PRESENCE, it is instantly returned a hundred-fold to us
NOTE the variation in the purity of color and the definition of form in the above three examples of affection/love. The pure, but largely undefined affection in the 1st example is typical of the person who is living life on an un-conscious level --- one who sees very dimly through the mirror of I Corinthians. The 2nd example denotes the individual who has selfish, greedy reasons for their affection/love --- “You can satisfy my needs.” … “I can’t do without you.” The thought-form is undefined and tainted with brown.
During this Lenten Season, may each of us evaluate our thoughts and emotions. Are we sending forth thought-forms of unconditional love or grasping love … sharing with others or selfish greed … helpful thoughts or thoughts that tear down ourselves and the ones to whom they are directed. Remember: We can heal with our thoughts; we can also destroy with our thoughts. The commandment: “Do Not Kill” applies to the childish thinker. The spiritual adult must “intend” to uplift, not dis-empower another with our thoughts.
Increasingly, people are awakening to the fact that life is far, far more than we have suspected while “looking through a mirror dimly.” As we awaken, we will become conscious of the inner planes of reality. Our sense of responsibility to do everything with unconditional love for all peoples will move from the childishness of a spiritual infant to the intentional, loving behavior of a spiritual adult. We will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that what we think matters greatly. For, along with our actions, we “reap what we sow” with our thoughts and emotions.
May we resurrect from our sleeping state and ascend into a higher consciousness of all life---on the physical plane and on the inner spiritual planes of existence. AMEN AND SO IT IS!
