A local hostess, well known to serve large delicious meals of self pity, complete with several courses of hurt, rejection, self concern and loneliness, suddenly and without warning refused to serve a well known Elemental who had come in for his daily meal.
The elemental was “a regular” and had arrived as usual during the quiet hours when there was less activity in the restaurant. Sitting down in its usual place, a quiet table in the area of the heart, it asked for “the usual”, a dinner it had ordered regularly without a problem.
The hostess, having a sudden surge of self awareness, recognized the elemental for what it was. “You are a vampire”, she screamed as she quickly stopped the flow of energy which had already started to leach into the Elemental’s mouth.
Apparently, an informant* had “ratted” on the Elemental. He said that the elemental had disguised itself and attached to the unsuspecting hostess during several unfortunate incidences of loss. It was using her energy not only to maintain its vitality but to send “negative energy” out into the community in “a fishing scheme” with the hopes of finding others who might be opening a similar restaurant.
The Elemental screamed that it was unfair and that she had served him on a daily basis before. In fact he said that he had become so close to her it was like a common law relationship. Then he tried to convince her that she should serve up a large portion of guilt and remorse when she realized that her friends had been terrorized too.
The hostess quickly realized that the elemental had simply chosen another item from the menu. She refused to serve him, in any way and showed him the door vowing to reveal his identity to the public along with his “viral like scam” which was poisoning the community.
*C.W. Leadbeater – Astral Plain
I have just read a book by A.E. Powell called “The Astral Body”. It’s actually a series of quotes from Blavatsky, Leadbeater, Besant and others. I rarely read Besant and Leadbeater, preferring to stick to Blavatsky for the purest teachings, however this seems to be a good compilation on the subject. I did credit this information in the blog, by using the term “the informant” , to Leadbeater, however I could have used Blavatsky or Besant, as both have also written extensively on this subject.
One of the chapters in the book, talks about thought forms. An impersonal thought perhaps about mathematics or science, etc. would be a purely mental thought form. On the other hand if the thought has in it something of a personal nature, desire, etc. it draws around it an Kama manasic elemental essence in addition to the mental, If it is of a spiritual divine nature, tinged with love, unselfishness and aspiration towards spiritual things, it may even have something of the Buddhic plane in it.
When a thought is produced by us, it is energetically carried by something called an “Elemental”. The Elemental is like an energy bundle; the combination of thought and energy is called a thought form. Since our brains are thinking all the time, we are constantly emitting thought forms of all kinds. When we walk down the street or are with others, we are in a sea of thought forms from others. Thought forms are attracted to other thoughts of the same vibration, we exchange them with others all the time.
When we respond to the mood of the moment, be it harmonizing, cheerful, energetic, or discordant, angry, emotional, we are actually “reading” the astral atmospheric conditions which are produced by the though forms of others.
The Hostess in this metaphor represents any one of us who has suffered loss and unfortunate events in life, on which a great deal of emotionally charged thoughts have been centered. At a certain time of the day, regularly, these thoughts well up, triggered perhaps by a moment alone, and they fill her heart with negativity. The Hostess had been taking this time to think over the past and relive the situation, over and over again until she was exhausted. She thought that by doing this she was coming to some resolution of the past, but in reality that had not happened, and probably wasn’t going to happen, instead she was giving energy to the thought forms and keeping them alive.
One day she realized this, she decided it was time the end this cycle that was getting her nowhere. Not only was she recharging her negative thoughts, she was sending them out into the atmosphere of everyone around her, unconsciously affecting everyone who came in contact with her.
With her realization of what she was doing to others and herself, she resolves not the give these thoughts energy. For a moment she felt remorse when she realized how she had affected others, but quickly she saw that trap too. She stopped all negative thinking.
The moment of Self Awareness occurred when she actually saw her own cycle of negative thinking.
Anyone who has gone through periods of depression, has been overcome with angry thoughts, sadness, self pity or loneliness knows how very difficult it is to stop it. The Elemental thought forms have a great deal of energy, and not only that, they have an affinity to and gain strength from the thought forms of people around them who have similar issues.
Taking responsibility for how we think involves conscious positive effort. Replacing negativity with thoughts of love, harmony and peace can produce amazing results, not only for our own mental health and emotional well being, but for all the people we include in our circle of life.
The above blog is actually a metaphor, which points out that with Self Awareness we can stop a pattern of negativity. Self Awareness in this case would be achieved by reaching a state of consciousness where one could actually see one’s own thought patterns without falling into the entanglement of them.
