My book, The Vision of Eagle Lake, A Novel Approach to Manifestation, is based on a rural/recreational area in the foothills of the Ozarks. The community needs a hospital, and events that actually occurred in the past year have brought us closer to our goal. This article first appeared in a local newspaper.

Hold That Thought
Positive Thinking: Hope, Prayer, & Intention

Believe it or not, it is possible for a group of people to have a major influence on an event when they have the same thought. The influence can be positive – or negative, depending on the thought process. Building a new hospital in the Village may be accomplished if we truly believe it can be done. The more people who hold this belief, the easier it will be to succeed.


Lynne McTaggart, author of The Field, and The Intention Experiment, explains how one community may have controlled the weather on graduation day – for 30 years. A former Princeton scientist and researcher for the Global Consciousness Project conducted a study, when he realized that the sun had shone on graduation day at Princeton for years. He reviewed weather reports for Princeton and the surrounding areas for the times around graduation day for a 30-year period and found that Princeton was drier and sunnier than surrounding communities on graduation day. McTaggart said, “If figures were to be believed, the collective wish for good weather by the community of Princeton may have created some sort of mental umbrella that stretched only to their borders during that single day.”


Closer to home, in a news story in the October 3-9, 2007 issue of the Villager Journal, “Eagle Fest Slated” Chris Murphy wrote, “With all the planning, the committee is simply praying for good weather.” Charlotte Goodwin commented, “We’ve been so lucky Mother Nature has blessed us with good weather for 12 years now. We’re hoping she will again this year, too.” You may have noticed that it did not rain on the 2007 Eagle Fest.

What happens when a large number of people think the same thought at the same time? What could happen if a large number of Sharp County residents held the same positive thought about a new hospital? McTaggart turned to people who had successfully managed to master intention to understand the processes they underwent to be able to use their thoughts for positive results. She found many ways that intention is used in real life. In sports for example, Olympic athletes visualize their routines and see them winning medals before they compete.


How do we promote healthy, positive thoughts about a new hospital? Encourage the belief that such a facility is possible, that sending out good thoughts (in the form of hopes, prayers, and intentions) will increase the possibility it will be built. Consider this activity as laying a thoughtful foundation for a positive outcome. Then as our talented business, financial, and government leaders begin to work with our educators, community organizations, and medical professionals to do the hard work of actually building our new hospital, they will have our full, positive support.

Just as “The sun always shines in Princeton on graduation day.” Our positive intention is, “We’re successfully building a new hospital in Cherokee Village.” The more people who accept the premise that it can be done and hold positive thoughts about the outcome, the more likely it will be done.
