Here’s an interesting quote from Prentice Mulford, a popular New Thought author:

“We need to be careful of what we think and talk. Because thought runs in currents as real as those of air and water. Of what we think and talk we attract to us a like current of thought. This acts on mind or body for good or ill.

If thought was visible to the physical eye we should its currents flowing to and from people. We should see that persons similar in temperament, character and motive are in the same literal current of thought.

We should see that the person in a despondent and angry mood was in the same current with others despondent or angry, and that each on in such moods serves as an additional battery or generator of such thought and is strengthening that particular current.

We should see these forces working in similar manner and connecting the hopeful, courageous and cheerful with all others hopeful, courageous and cheerful.

When you are in low spirits or “blue” you have acting on you the thought current coming from all others in low spirits.

You are in oneness with the despondent order of thought. The mind is then sick. It can be cured, but a permanent cure cannot always come immediately when one has long been in the habit of opening the mind to this current of thought.”

Remember that thought here encompasses a large range of phenomenons. The verbal thoughts you think in your mind are only one aspect of it. Your mental images, your energy, your mental state are others – also very important – aspects that you have to take into consideration when reflecting on this quote.
