If a room is too small and crowded, it can affect our feelings and thoughts.
What we see and what we surround ourselves with also penetrates our thinking.
With our thought we are creating a place on the astral plane where we do our magical work.
What we think receives our energy and can thus manifest itself.
This can be done passively, but also actively. This means that we are no longer influenced from the outside, but rather creating an image from our inside which we give energy.
The beauty of this is that our subconscious minds cannot tell whether this is a fantasy or whether this is real, but through practice and repetition we convince our subconscious minds that this is reality and there begins the process of changing our paradigm and loosening our fears and doubts to enable a richer more fulfilling life.
