Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkison – with some notes from me:

“Thought-Waves are manifested in a variety of forms and phases.

Some are the waves emanated from the minds of all thinkers, unconsciously and without purpose, and usually without much force.”

My note: these are your normal everyday thoughts, daydreaming, unconscious thoughts with little consequence. Although they don’t have much force individually, they have a huge strength in your body and energy constitution when they are piled up over the course of months and years.

“Others are sent forth with great force, and travel far, manifesting a degree of influence commensurate with the force with which they are projected.”

My note: this is the equivalent of a willful concentrated directed thought. It happens when your focus your mind in one specific thought or direction. It’s a strong concentration power.

It’s particularly easy to differentiate when you compare someone with a strong direction in life versus one that is carried by whatever direction the wind is blowing.

“Others are directed purposely toward certain individuals or places, and travel along rapidly in a straight line to the point towards which they have been directed or aimed.”

My note: this is the equivalent of a direct projection as we discussed before. You focus your mind and energy to project into one specific individual or objective. It’s a laser like projection in a straight line, as Atkinson mentions.

“Others are sent forth with great strength and power, but instead of being directed toward any particular person or place, are designed to sweep around in great whirlpools of energy affecting all who happen to fall within their field of force.”

My note: this is the full power magnetism as we constantly discuss here.

As I often mention, it’s like a perfume that anyone can smell. It’s not directed to one particular person, but instead it’s spread around you like a “whirlpool of energy”.

“The vibratory force of these Thought-Waves does not cease with the sending forth of the wave, but persists for a long time afterward. Just as heat in a room persists long after the fire in the stove has been extinguished—just as the perfume of the flower exists in a room long after the flower has been removed — just as a ray of light travels through space for millions of miles, and for centuries after the star itself has been blotted out of existence—just as any and all forms of vibratory energy persist in manifestation after the initial impulse has been withdrawn — so do the vibrations of Thought continue long after the thought, yes, long after the brain which sent them forth has passed into dust.”

My note: It’s very easy to understand this particularly when you enter historical places. It’s like some part of the old energy remained frozen in that particular place.

If you have any kind of energy awareness you can feel quite differently in a battling ground where some historical battle has took place, or an old cathedral or a medieval castle.

Even though those events happened hundreds of years ago, you can still feel some part of it.

“You will readily understand that there is a great difference between Thought-Waves sent forth idly and unconsciously, and without knowledge of the underlying laws of Mental Influence, and those projected with a full knowledge of the laws governing the phenomena and urged on and directed by a powerful Will of the sender. The force is the same, but the degree of its power, and the measure of its effect, is determined by the conditions of its sending forth.”

My note: Now you can understand why concentration is so essential in the development of magnetism. It gives you the direction and the power to whatever you want to project. Everything you do in terms of energy projection will become stronger and have better overall effects.

It’s a crucial and imperative part of magnetism and that’s why we created the Concentration and Mind Control course to give you a specific training that develops this part of your mind.
