Thanks to the New Thought movement, we have known for a good while now about the power of thought and how positive thinking can transform our lives. All the Great Teachers and thinkers of humanity have pointed out the power of thought, which is capable of forming the essence of a human being. But how does it work, and what does the nature of thought actually look like?
Ever since ancient times it has been assumed that thought is the basis of everything in the Universe, that it is the subtlest fiery energy, to which all other types of energy are subordinate. One could say that thought represents a fiery energy that the human will enrobes in a material form which is invisible to physical eyes, but is visible to strong clairvoyants and can be registered by scientific methods as well. The outer wrapping of any thought is invisibly linked with its creator and has a magnetic force, with which the human will endowed it.
All thoughts aspire to realization, and sooner or later they must manifest themselves in action, even after many, many decades. Since the nature of thought is not physical, but subtle — meaning it is a higher energy — it can form the physical world around the person. But for this purpose it must have a clear and distinct image, which endues it with the appropriate strength and shape to overcome the limits of Time for fulfillment in the material world. Moreover, a person must work to create the necessary conditions for it. The magnetic power of thought attracts related elements from space on the principle of “like attracts like,” growing like a snowball. Thus the thought already sent into space is still linked with its owner, and periodically it returns to this person for affirmation or denial, moving like a boomerang. The thought can revolve, like a comet, around the one who put the initial bundle of energy into it, and that energy determines the corresponding radius and the orbit of revolution. If the person has not rejected it, and continues to make an effort to realize it, their will endows it with new force, and it again goes into space, increasing the radius of its influence, and so on until the thought becomes a reality, after receiving a sufficient amount of energy from both its creator and the surrounding environment. On the other hand, if at any moment the person begins to doubt it or they no longer need it, and they stop applying effort to realize it, then this thought loses its force, gradually weakens, and eventually breaks down into primary elements, never revealing its potential.
It should be noted that since they are essentially energy, thoughts are subject to the Supreme Laws which are discussed in all the sacred scriptures. The Supreme Laws are also the energies governing our entire Universe, but they are even higher in their power, and therefore all others submit to them, and people cannot change this. Thus, dark thoughts are doomed to destruction, and since they are all connected with their creators, they pull those people after them. In contrast, thoughts of light are eternal and can grow infinitely, giving spiritual ascent to their originators. Thoughts directed at oneself soar nearby the person, illuminating or darkening their consciousness, depending on their nature. It has already been scientifically proven that thoughts expressed in words affect water and plants, and therefore it is not difficult to continue this pattern and assume that they affect the human body and soul in the exact same way. Evil and negative thoughts will destroy the person’s vital force, while good and positive ones, on the contrary, will increase it.
Thoughts can protect a person, certain places, and objects, as well as help someone else, uniting instantly with the object of aspiration. So, for example, the infamous “curse of the pharaohs” is a consequence of the fact that the objects belonging to kings were long under the protection imposed by high priests with the help of thoughts. These objects of the past have a special energy and aura that have been in harmony for ages. When scientists disturb the peace of the pharaohs’ tombs, they do not control their thoughts, and it turns out that their thoughts of profit or worldly fame, which represent low energy, add dissonance, as though breaking a sacred protective net that had defended not only the mummified body of a pharaoh, but also his tomb, together with all the items placed there. And this protection, as a rule, is multi-level, when it comes to the pharaoh who had passed certain degrees of Initiation. Here the focus should be on invisible planes, and initially scientists should look at least through the microscopes that are available to them. Here, just like in Nature, the absolute heterogeneity of mental energies causes an invisible tornado, which lifts up dangerous microscopic particles that are inhaled by those who have disturbed the peace of the pharaoh, and then it can manifest itself in the form of a disease.
Now let us look at what exactly thinks and produces thoughts within us. It is generally accepted that thoughts are generated by the brain. Yet, in modern language, the brain can be called a physical computer that is able only to perceive our thoughts created on the invisible levels of human nature, both low and high, and to project them to our physical senses of perception. Thus, none of the experienced surgeons who have conducted craniotomies and intervened in different parts of the brain, and even removed malignant bodies, have ever seen thoughts soaring around inside there. They have even noticed that post-operative states, as a rule, do not affect mental capacity.
Clairvoyants are able to see a glow around people’s heads: these are generated thoughts flowing over the brain so that it can perceive them. They pass through the network of invisible luminous channels and superimpose themselves upon the gray matter in a certain pattern, forming convolutions. It has long been known that the gyri of the brain are reflected on our hands, and modern scientists have now proved the relationship between convolutions in the brain, its condition, and the lines on people’s palms. Thus, one can say that our thoughts indeed shape our destiny, because they are imprinted upon the gray matter of our brain in the form of convolutions, which are reflected on our palms as our destiny.
Hence, knowing perfectly the art of palm reading, it is possible to read the destiny of any person, which they themselves created, and it is also possible to notice changes in cases when people have taken on the effort to change themselves and their lives by force of will. The left hand, as a rule, reveals pages of our past and present lifetime, while the right hand shows the future that we can change for the better. And if you copy or take a picture of your palms on your birthday, then a year later on the same day, you will be able to see how you have changed your destiny in one or another direction. The main emphasis should be placed on the life line and the heart line. If you notice gaps or dark spots on them, you should not give up. But those who have advanced on the path toward improving their karma and destiny advice that you take a pencil or pen and draw distinct lines of bright and cheerful colors on your palm, and the thought-forms that are triggered at the mental level will turn on the mechanism of self-regulation in your brain. And your life will then take shape in brighter colors! Thus, according to your faith, you will be rewarded.
However, it is not only the brain that can perceive thoughts: the heart can, too. It is actually the heart that receives the thoughts produced by our higher centers of consciousness, and only after that does it transmit them to the brain for registration, often as flashes of intuition. Thus, the currents of thoughts passing through the heart are much more effective than those that go through the brain and bypass the heart, because the heart imbues them with a special kind of energy that will help them overcome any obstacles. And since God is Love, the thoughts created by the Power of Love are the most powerful of all, capable of conceiving entire worlds.
Given what we have laid out above, it becomes clear how powerful the collective thought of all humankind must be, and how strongly it affects the conditions of life on our planet. It is within our power to change not only our destiny, but also that of our cities, countries, and the entire Earth. And therefore the main task of each of us is to learn how to control our thoughts, which can lead us to the mastery of numerous mysteries of Nature and help us achieve omnipotence of the spirit.
Thought is a mystery, and it must be comprehended step by step:
- Thinking about how to think. Huge conglomerates of different thoughts generated by humankind, like a giant storm or bank of luminous clouds, are hanging over your head. Does the thought which has suddenly appeared gladden or upset you? Or maybe it is pushing you to take your own life or to harm another creature? In this way you will discern the true nature of the thought which has come to visit you. And here it is for you to decide whether to follow an aggressive path and to increase the destructive force, or to bring forth a prayer in response, with whose luminous power you will bring at least a tiny spark of light into the surrounding pitch-black darkness.
- Do not use foul language! Each uttered phrase carries an energy component, which can be permeated with either poisonous fumes or currents of salvation. Everyone is familiar with the phrase “words can kill,” and we must be aware that anyone who promotes death is killing his own self, his soul, first and foremost. Certainly we cannot say that too little blood been shed by our fellow men! The time has come to “resurrect by word,” and, instead of antipodal words, to produce pure, light phrases. May the light-bearing conglomerates grow for the benefit of the whole Human Race!
- Everything is within your power! Look at your palms, fill them with the Light, and share it with the suffering in the form of either a good word or a thought of salvation, or an act that brings peace to the world.
Zinovia Dushkova, Ph.D., is an award-winning Russian author and researcher of ancient mysteries. Her spiritual quest has taken her to remote Buddhist monasteries and sacred Abodes hidden within mountains and deserts in Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia, and India, where she has studied ancient manuscripts inaccessible to Western researchers. Thus, she gained admittance to the secret Book of Dzyan, the stanzas of which were first revealed by Helena Blavatsky, forming the basis of The Secret Doctrine. A new excerpt from this mysterious manuscript is published in The Book of Secret Wisdom.
