Do you mean "thought forms"?

If so, try Googling the term and you'll find a number of articles on the subject. I've written about the subject myself.

Thought forms are a form of energy created by the human mind. These energies are then used with the intention of doing bad or good.

maciader --

I was doing some light research on this a while ago. There are a coupla interesting wikis to getcha rolling:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoughtform

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyulu

These are Eastern-spiced, but various Buddhist and Tibetan traditions have an amazingly complex vocabulary to talk about these ideas, far more than English has to offer (far as I can tell, anyway).

There's also the idea of Daemons, which isn't an exact correlation but there are some parallels. Before "Demon" took on malevolent connotations, a Daemon was simply a spirit -- good/bad/neutral -- and in the first few centuries CE in Rome, a Daemon was a protective entity (largely with upperclass folks, if memory serves). The wiki here is a lot less clear (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daemon_%28mythology%29) but maybe a good jumping off point.

And last but not least, if you do some searching on irreality.net or any number of other occulture / chaos-magic sites, there's this idea of a servitor, which is essentially a summoned thoughtform.

Maybe this isn't the angle you were thinkiing? Not spiritual entities but the ways our thoughts kind of manifest in reality? Maybe there's some friendly psychology people who might help out in that department...what were you reading that triggered this interest?
