Hi, my friends, I have here a very interesting article about thought vibration. The american writer William Atkinson explains in his many books how thought waves work and which is their process of reproduction.
Like a stone that was thrown into the water, thought produces ripples and waves which spread out over the great ocean of thought. There is this difference, however: the waves on the water move only on a level plane in all directions, whereas thought waves move in all directions from a common center, just as do the rays from the sun.
Just as we here on earth are surrounded by a great sea of air, so are we surrounded by a great sea of Mind. Our thought waves move through this vast mental ether, extending, however, in all directions, becoming somewhat lessened in intensity, according to the distance traversed.
These thought waves have other qualities differing from the waves on the water. They have the property of reproducing themselves; in this respect they resemble sound raves rather than waves upon the water. Just as a note of the violin will cause the thin glass to vibrate and “sing”, so will a strong thought tend to awaken similar vibrations in minds attuned to receive it.
Many of the “stray thoughts” which come to us are but reflections or answering vibrations to some strong thought sent out by another. But unless our minds are attuned to receive it, the thought will not likely affect us. If we are thinking high and great thoughts our minds acquire a certain keyword corresponding to the character of the thoughts we have been thinking. And this keyword, once established, we will be apt to catch the vibrations of other mind keyed to the same thought.
Our general mental attitude determines the character of the thought waves received from others as well as the thoughts emanating from ourselves. We receive only such thoughts as are in harmony with the general mental attitude held by ourselves. The thoughts not in harmony are affecting us very little, as they awaken no response in us.
The man who believes thoroughly in himself and maintains a positive strong mental attitude of confidence and determination is not likely to be affected by the adverse and negative thoughts of discouragement and failure emanating from the minds of other persons in whom these last qualities predominate.
At the same time these negative thoughts, if they reach one whose mental attitude is picked on a low key, deepen his negative state and add fuel to the fire, which is consuming his strength.
We attract to us the thoughts of others of the same order of thought.
The man who thinks success will be apt to get into tune with the minds of others thinking likewise, and they will help him and he them.
The man who allows his mind to dwell constantly upon thoughts of failure brings himself into close touch with the minds of the “failure” people, and each will tend to pull the other down still more.
The man who thinks that all is evil is apt to see more evil and will be brought into contact with others who will seem to prove his theory.
And the man who looks for good in everything and everybody will be likely to attract to himself the things and people corresponding to his thought.
We generally see that for which we look.
So, once again, we can help ourselves being positive in thinking and attitude.
Show me your opinion, please.
