Less Ageism, Please The January 4 issue of this publication proved to me that there are some sensible voices of reason in our community regarding all things “inter-generational.” I offer a word of thanks to Elizabeth Myers. I too have worked hard for what I’ve earned throughout my years in the various positions I’ve held. While I too cannot speak for each millennial, brash generalizations about a lack of work ethic don’t sit well with me...Joe Connolly, Traverse City

Now That’s an Escalation I just read the letter from Greg and his defense of the AR15. The letter started with great information but then out of nowhere his opinion went off the rails. “The government wants total gun control and then confiscation; then the elimination of all Constitutional rights.” Wait... what?! To quote the great Ron Burgundy, “Well, that escalated quickly!”

Healthy Eating and Exercise for Children Healthy foods and exercise are important for children of all ages. It is important for children because it empowers them to do their best at school and be able to do their homework and study...

Mascots and Harsh Native American Truths The letter from the Choctaw lady deserves an answer. I have had a gutful of the whining about the fate of the American Indian. The American Indians were the losers in an imperial expansion; as such, they have, overall, fared much better than a lot of such losers throughout history. Everything the lady complains about in the way of what was done by the nasty, evil Whites was being done by Indians to other Indians long before Europeans arrived...

Snyder Must Go I believe it’s time. It’s time for Governor Snyder to go. The FBI, U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the EPA Criminal Investigation Division are now investigating the Flint water crisis that poisoned thousands of people. Governor Snyder signed the legislation that established the Emergency Manager law. Since its inception it has proven to be a dismal failure...

Erosion of Public Trust Let’s look at how we’ve been experiencing global warming. Between 1979 and 2013, increases in temperature and wind speeds along with more rain-free days have combined to stretch fire seasons worldwide by 20 percent. In the U.S., the fire seasons are 78 days longer than in the 1970s...

You are what you think you are

Mark Waggener - March 8th, 2007
Have you ever questioned whether your thoughts actually have a physical effect on things? Can it be assumed that our mental health and physical condition go hand-in-hand, based on the way we think? If you nod in agreement, then you are likely to recognize that thoughts contain a type of energy which can manifest into a positive or negative form
of overall well being. How you apply this energy on a day-to-day basis can directly contribute to experiences you have throughout your entire life.

Universal Laws
The universe is a field of magnetic energy and puts out a particular frequency. In the same sense, our bodies are continually sending signals in the form of energy which are derived from our individual thought processes. It has been noted scientifically that a human thought transmits a frequency which can be measured through brain waves.
Through the use of Kirlian photography, scientific evidence has also suggested that there is a distinct magnetic field that mirrors each and every one of us. This electromagnetic field sends signals to the universe just as the universe sends signals to us. You can consider this type of energy a life force -- or an aura -- that represents physical and emotional functions.

Endless Thoughts
Throughout each day, most people generate approximately 50,000 thoughts, which result from chemical and electrical activity within the brain. Since the human brain can be considered our main source of electrical energy, it is therefore responsible for gathering information and sending out instructions to the body and mind. The majority of this activity in a healthy human brain is involuntary, but when it comes to the way we choose to think, this voluntary process is overtly manageable. Being “tuned in,” so to speak, can materialize in so many ways. The frequency or signal you decide to emit on a consistent basis will draw that likeness back to you in the form of some type of energy.

Awareness
Although it is impossible to monitor all of our daily thoughts, it is conceivable to enhance the positive ones and dispel the negative ones. It is simply a matter of mental aerobics and re-programming your mind through continued awareness, repetition, and determination.
Subsequently, through emotions, we all have the power to distribute positive energy based solely on good thoughts. You don’t have to ask yourself, who talks to you more than anyone else in life; the answer is quite simple: you do. It’s the manner in which you choose to speak silently to yourself that can lay the groundwork for a self-fulfilling destiny.

Like attracts like
Whatever you have, or are, you attract more of. If someone is having a bad day at work, it can be quite apparent that they are sending out negative energy which most people can sense, and oftentimes prefer to avoid. The result of that energy heightens the negative situation and affects your immediate health and welfare. Regardless of what’s causing the negative vibes, it can be reversed in an instant by taking charge of those thoughts. It may be easier said than done, but the next time a negative notion enters your mind, send it to the recycle bin and replace it with an uplifting thought.

Fully Charged
In a harmonious equation, if someone is having a great day and exudes a smile and favorable mood, it can be just as apparent and creates an infectious field of good energy. A positive shift in energy affects everything around us and is beneficial in nourishing organs and cells within the body to support their vital functions. Like a rush of water, it can clear debris from our path so we can move forward. It is this type of charged energy that attracts like-minded people and positive situations, and generates a positive aura.

Magnetic Beings
If we think of ourselves as a magnet, we can attract or repel anything we choose. Dwelling on the things we don’t have or the situations we place ourselves in with dissenting thoughts can deter us from what we can achieve spiritually and emotionally.
Regardless of whether it is your health, your relationships, your financial situation, or your personal well-being, every thought and every emotion running through your mind has a profound effect on the outcome. Look around and take notice of the people who do exemplify a positive aura. Place your own order with the universe and attract what you want with spirited anticipation. By exerting an energetic mind and will, the potential to harness the automatic functions of our entire being can be realized.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” -- Henry Ford
