Inalienable Rights This is a response to the “No More State Theatre” in your August 24th edition. I think I will not be the only response to this pathetic and narrow-minded letter that seems rather out of place in the northern Michigan that I know. To think we will not be getting your 25 cents for the movie you refused to see, but more importantly we will be without your “two cents” on your thoughts of a marriage at the State Theatre...

Enthusiastically Democratic Since I was one of the approximately 160 people present at when Senator Debbie Stabenow spoke on August 14 in Charlevoix, I was surprised to read in a letter to Northern Express that there was a “rather muted” response to Debbie’s announcement that she has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president...

Not Hurting I surely think the State Theatre will survive not having the homophobic presence of Colleen Smith and her family attend any matinees. I think “Ms.” Smith might also want to make sure that any medical personnel, bank staff, grocery store staff, waiters and/or waitress, etc. are not homosexual before accepting any service or product from them...

Stay Home I did not know whether to laugh or cry when I read the letter of the extremely homophobic, “disgusted” writer. She now refuses to patronize the State Theatre because she evidently feels that its confines have been poisoned by the gay wedding ceremony held there...

Keep Away In response to Colleen Smith of Cadillac who refused to bring her family to the State Theatre because there was a gay wedding there: Keep your 25 cents and your family out of Traverse City...

Celebrating Moore And A Theatre I was 10 years old when I had the privilege to see my first film at the State Theatre. I will never forget that experience. The screen was almost the size of my bedroom I shared with my older sister. The bursting sounds made me believe I was part of the film...

Outdated Thinking This letter is in response to Colleen Smith. She made public her choice to no longer go to the State Theater due to the fact that “some homosexuals” got married there. I’m not outraged by her choice; we don’t need any more hateful, self-righteous bigots in our town. She can keep her 25 cents...

Mackinac Pipeline Must Be Shut Down Crude oil flowing through Enbridge’s 60-yearold pipeline beneath the Mackinac Straits and the largest collection of fresh water on the planet should be a serious concern for every resident of the USA and Canada. Enbridge has a very “accident” prone track record...

Your Rights To Colleen, who wrote about the State Theatre: Let me thank you for sharing your views; I think most of us are well in support of the first amendment, because as you know- it gives everyone the opportunity to express their opinions. I also wanted to thank Northern Express for not shutting down these types of letters right at the source but rather giving the community a platform for education...

No Role Model [Fascinating Person from last week’s issue] Jada quoted: “I want to be a role model for girls who are interested in being in the outdoors.” I enjoy being in the outdoors, but I don’t want to kill animals for trophy...

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
