Manifestation From Thoughts and Mental Energy

“There is a manifestation of energy or force (in the from of vibrations) in every mental or emotional state. This is true not only in the case of deep thought or vivid feeling, but also in the case of general mental ‘feelings.’ and emotional states. During such manifestations there is a radiation of mental or emotional vibrations from the brain or nervous centers of the system, which flows out in all directions just as do light and wireless electricity. The principal seats of these radiations are (1) the several brains of man, viz., the cerebrum, cerebellum, and the medula oblongata, respectfully; and (2) the several great centers of nerve substance in the human system, called the plexi such as the solar plexus, etc.

“The vibrations rising from emotional excitement are sent out principally from the plexi. … Those arising from the more strictly mental states emanate from certain centers of the brain.” `William Walker Atkinson

Mental Energy

Mental energy is no longer a weird idea of mystics and spiritual people. It is completely accepted by science. Brain waves are a real thing. But is isn’t just the brain that is sending out energy waves. Our nerve centers, which Atkinson calls “plexi,” are areas where many nerves are centered. Today, the accepted plural of plexus is plexuses. The best known of these is the solar plexus, but we have several others. These all send and receive mental energy of different frequencies. These energies can be picked up by others and sometimes understood on some level. In other cases, they can affect other beings including animals, plants, and even inanimate things. It is a basic law of science that energy does work. The energy we send out from our brain and nerve centers are no different.

Radiation of Vibration

Thought waves do emanate in all directions from our brain and nerve centers constantly. Some believe this means they can control the world around them with their thoughts. What their equation is missing is that everyone else is sending out thoughts or mental energy. All of those thoughts together are controlling the world to a large degree. But the thoughts of one person do very little. Especially if it is just an ordinary person with a normal level of energy and vibrations.

Hindu Three Suns (gods)

Hindu Three Suns Represent Three Bodies of Man

“There is an Oriental painting which shows three sunbursts. One sunburst covers the heads, in the midst of which sits Brama with four heads, his body a mysterious dark color. The second sunburst—which covers the heart, solar plexus, and upper abdominal region—shows Vishnu sitting in the blossom of the lotus on a couch formed of the coils of the serpent of cosmic motion. … The third sunburst is over the generative system, in the midst of which sits Shiva, his body a grayish white and the Ganges river flowing out of the crown of his head. This painting was the work of a Hindu mystic. … The Christian legends could be related to the human body by the same method as the Oriental, for the arcane meanings hidden in the teachings of both schools are identical.” ~Manly P. Hall

Hindu Three Suns

Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the painting described by Hall online. I can’t even find one similar to it. The closest I could come was an image showing the three Hindu gods mentioned with a sun behind each of their heads, but not overlaying a human body. This is not surprising as such a spiritual image is likely to be downplayed, if not suppressed, in our modern materialist societies.

There are a number of possible interpretations of the three suns. It could be a reference to three ages of man. It could represent three major energy centers in man. But I think it represents the three bodies or levels of man’s being: Physical, mental/psychic, spiritual.

A few years ago, I wrote an article about the three suns according to Rosicrucian traditions. That article was also based on the writings of Manly P. Hall.

The First Sun

The first of the Hindu three suns is he sun over the head of the person which has Brama in it. Brama is the creator god in Hinduism. According to Wikipedia, this god is not important in modern Hinduism. But since he overlays the head in the painting mentioned, he seems important to me.

The head is associated with the brain and the mind. Having the god of creation there indicates the importance of the brain in creation. We know the brain is important in the creation of the illusions of the realm of matter. It is possible that it has some importance on higher levels of creation as well.

In many spiritual schools, part of the spiritual practice is to raise energy from the bottom of the spine up to the head. On the other hand, solar energy enters through the head and moves down to the bottom of the spine.

The head is also associated with the intellect. This would make this sun the one representing the mental and psychic levels of being. Continue reading “Hindu Three Suns Represent Three Bodies of Man”
