Spirit-lives are sensitive to thought formations and respond instinctively to such thought desires as reach their sphere or zone of life. The spirit-lives of the first spiritual zone are sufficiently near to the physical material world—in their vibratory correspondence—that they are influenced by every thought that is thought of them or about them.

When we persistently cling to our departed loved ones in our thought and will not let them go, we tend to retard them in their spiritual development and to hold them near to us. By so doing, we do them harm and produce a condition that is temporarily fatal either to their development or to our physical material existence.

When we retard the development of spirit-lives that are in the first spiritual zone by persistently holding them near to us through our thought, we produce a condition that tends to unhappiness and that finally results either in their breaking this tie that binds them or in their pulling us over to their side of life.
