All of reality is composed of thought forms. When you are able to perceive this concept clearly, you are able to view life from a higher vantage point, since you are able to choose which thoughts you want to exist within your consciousness.
This does not mean negative thought forms cease to exist altogether; that is impossible, since creation cannot be destroyed. It simply means you do not allow debilitating thoughts to reside within your field, and if they do, you expel them.
Think of it like this: If you take a leaf off the ground, you clearly see that it exists in the physical realm, because you can sense it. This is the most dense form of matter, and if you grind it up into a powder, then it becomes even less dense, and if you burn it, once it evaporates, what happens to it? It becomes even less dense. Just like a deceased human, that leaf still exists, but in a less dense plane, the thought plane. It still exists as an idea regardless of it being physical or not.
This example is the blueprint for all creation that makes up reality, and at all times we decide which thoughts we want to invoke. Over time we can even build up ideas so strongly that they materialize in the physical plane. It takes personal willpower to do this, more or less depending on the scope of the idea, and this works in exactly the same way for both positive and negative manifestations.
If you are stressed out, eventually that stress will materialize as disease in the body. It’s the same with attracting abundance. If you are constantly emitting thought forms of abundance, that is what will materialize in physical reality.
What tends to happen is we become stagnant from living repetitive lifestyles which block flow and cause disease in the body. Constant restrictive thoughts of fear debilitate the mind and body and are the reason for dissatisfaction in life.
We build up certain thought forms over time and get stuck within the constraints of these thoughts which keep us bound to lower levels of consciousness. The advice of “think happy thoughts” has been so overused over time that we have become desensitized to this advice, making it no longer useful for the most part.
Open communication with other people or simply with the universe is the most effective method of therapy, although speaking with others can be destructive to them as well, so it must be done only if the proper preparation has been taken.
It is best to avoid all negative thought forms altogether simply by not putting yourself in environments that include them. This means not going to places with unconscious people, not listening to aggressive music, not watching television programs that perpetuate unconsciousness and lock you into that state of being, etc. It is easy to become addicted to these types of activities, because they are designed to be immersive, indulge the senses, and create emotional attachment.
When it comes to the question of which television programs are safe to watch, while the highest quality programs tend to be the most dramatic and include high levels of turmoil, stress, violence, and aggressive behavior, they also portray the full range of emotions and provide relatable depictions of peak experiences.
Since there are both pros and cons to the argument of the risks of watching television, it is tough to give a clear-cut answer to this question, because it is ultimately up to the viewer to decide if there is more value in experiencing the traumas depicted in the events of the programs for the benefit of education, or if the negativity expressed therein is too detrimental and should be avoided.
Regardless, from a clinical standpoint, I will always recommend avoiding all negativity, but in the case of entertainment, there is a desire to expand the consciousness, so the bottom line is exploration into darkness from a safe distance is acceptable if the being is mentally prepared to process the trauma.
Of course, the trauma will still affect the psyche regardless of preparation; it is simply impossible for it not to. This is only such a debate, because when it comes to the exploration and expansion of the mind, it is vital to gain as much experience as possible, but the question is, at what cost to personal health?
If the reason for watching a program that contains violent behavior is for education, how long does it take to learn the lesson? Is the lesson, in fact, not to watch violent programs? That’s what I wonder. Does one need to watch pornography in order to learn the detriments of watching pornography?
If there was no lesson to learn, would these outlets still be explored in the first place? If you have a healthy sex life, would you still have a need to watch porn? The desire derives from the personal dissatisfaction of not being free, not being fulfilled, so we settle for watching others act out our fantasies instead.
This is what we do; we externalize our desires when we are unfulfilled. We watch porn when we can’t have sex. We watch television when we can’t experience adventure. We always say it’s fine in moderation, which means it’s fine as long as there is no attachment, but is this a cop-out, an excuse to go to the dark side?
What if you’re consciously doing something that is not healthy for you, yet you continue to do it anyway? We tend to fall into this trap, because the impulsive action typically provides a sense of instant gratification, a quick fix to a problem, and it becomes hard to reverse it once a habit is formed, a mental addiction.
So here’s the litmus test: If you were existing in your most divine state, would you still allow these habits to exist in your life? Would you still allow yourself to watch violent television programs? Would you allow your children, if you had children, to be subjected to them, as well? The answer is for you to decide.
