Just as the physical atmosphere is the result of climatic conditions and air quality, there is a subtle (non-physical) atmosphere which cannot be seen, heard or measured but can be experienced and influenced by the mind and analyzed by the intellect. It is variously described as the “prevailing mood”, the “vibration” and so on. What is the cause of this non-physical atmosphere, these “vibrations?”
Thought has been proven to be a powerful yet non-physical “energy”, which can influence other souls and matter. Thoughts, emotions,
desires and moods generate a “field” around the soul (just like an electric field), which can be called positive, negative or neutral,
depending on the quality of its effect on other souls and on matter.
When a large number of souls are all experiencing positive thoughts, feelings and emotions, then the atmosphere becomes “charged” with positivity. When they are experiencing negative emotions, the opposite happens.
