Recently I have been reading the works of Thomas Troward, who is often referred to as one of the earlier pioneers of the New Thought movement, although I think he was much more than that. All of Troward's theories and principles seem to be in line with the manifesting processes here at Inward Quest. For instance, in his book The Law and The Word, Troward states,
That established, Troward goes on to talk about a process which he calls "addressing the soul of the subject." Rather than give a description here, I will simply paste the pertinent section in full:
I found this whole passage fascinating, and I am wondering if any of you out there have any knowledge or experience with addressing the soul of an object or abstract subject.

Hi @Lozenge 123,
This is reminding me of Bridge of Light by LaUna Huffines.
In her book, LaUna describes weaving a web of light strands that you project out from your heart center into a bridge of light, which you then anchor to anything or anyone you would like to connect to.
In the instance you are discussing, you would then walk out onto your bridge, and ask the other side to come and meet you there, and you can chat. :) You ask questions, if you like, and can receive some astonishing answers.
You can also picture the subject as a ball of light, and walk across your bridge and right into it, where you feel yourself desolve, and become one with it. This is a wonderful and (for me) a very effective meditation to match your vibration with that of love, peace, happiness, tranquility...whatever you would like.
If you want to connect to a person, you find that you can communicate with their spirit, or higher self, and ffind common ground, resolution and peace where there had been troubles. I have used this after a bad break up, when we were not speaking, and it had a wonderful effect. I felt such relief after hearing from him in this manner, and understanding that the love was still there, it had gone nowhere (always a confusing question to me), it was just being clouded over by fears, and our paths redirected. In the instance I'm thinking of, we actually reunited with new understanding. :)
While writing this it occurs to me that I had always thought of this practice as creating a connection, but now I believe it is more about acknowledging the connections that exist between ourselves and really anything else in the Universe, since there really isn't anything "else".
I like these ideas and meditations. They provide a context and a personification to help us translate that connection - or more accurately, lack of separation, into a workable and benefitial place of understanding.
