“Thoughts are Things”

Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkinson:

“That great writer on the power of the mind – Prentice Mulford, has summed up much of his philosophy in the statement: “Thoughts are Things”. In these words he gave expression to a mighty truth, which, if fully apprehended by mankind, would revolutionize the world.

Thought is not only a dynamic force, it’s a real thing, just as is any other material object. Thought is merely a finer form of mater, or grosser form or spirit – you may call it either with equal correctness.

Matter is but a grosser form of mind, mind but a finer form of matter. There is but one substance in nature, but that substance has many forms, ranging from the most material (so-called forms), to the highest form – Spirit.

When we think, we send out vibrations of a fine ethereal substance, which is as real as the finer vapor or gasses, the liquids, the solids. […]

The character of the thought vibrations sent out by us depends upon the nature of the thought itself.

If thought had color (and some say they have), we should see our fear and worry thought as murky, heavy, clouds hanging close to earth; our bright, cheerful, happy, confident, “I can and I will” thought as light, fleecy, vapory clouds hanging close to earth.

No matter how far your thought waves may travel, they retain a certain connection with you and exert an influence over you as well as others. You cannot easily get rid of the influence over you as well as others. If you have been sending out bad thoughts, you are subject to their influence, and your only hope is to neutralize and counteract them by sending out strong, new thought waves of the proper sort.”

Our thoughts and feelings influence everything inside of us as well as around us.

I’m sure you can identify all those with a negative magnetism around them, as well as the positive. Some people just have that great glow around them!

While others have a shadow of doom that you can feel as soon as you look at them.

As Atkinson says, it’s never too late to change and to develop a healthy glowing magnetism around you!
