OK, this sounds sort of crazy but here goes... The way you think actually effects the world around you. I thought it was bumpkis also but I did the experiment AND IT"S TRUE! Here it is... Take 4 carrots all about the same size. cut them about 1/2 inch below the green end and trim off any leaves etc.. place them in 2 saucers, cut side down. lable one dish with a (+) and one dish (-) and place them in a window for light. Keep them watered but every day look at the (+) carrots and think "You are beautiful plant, you will be green and lush" etc... on the (-) carrots think "you are horrible, I hate you, you will whither and die, brown and disgusting" In a few weeks the (+) one was nice a green growing well....the (-) one was dead and molding. You all should try this. It's really freaky. and makes you think about life in general.
