Everything begins in the mental plane first before it manifests in the physical plane. You think to yourself first, “I would like some ice cream,” then you get up and get yourself some ice cream. But it began in your mind with a thought. Each thought has a picture, sound and color associated with it. Prolonged concentration on a thought eventually brings it into manifestation on the physical plane. The longer you think about wanting an ice cream the stronger the thought form becomes. As the thought form becomes stronger, you start to speak it out loud. You may express this intention to someone by saying, “I feel like having some ice cream.” As you think more about this and, hence, put more energy into the thought form, you will start to manifest it in the physical plane. Now you will stand up and say, “I’m going to go and get myself some ice cream.”
Be careful of what you think and how much energy you put into those thoughts, lest they manifest in your life.
