Good Energy begets Good Thinking…and Visa Versa

I believe in mind over matter.   I don’t believe “you are what you eat”, (although I do understand that diet can affect my emotions and energy, and those things can impact how I feel about myself.) That’s why I bless my food.  It’s not a religious thing; I just...
