Sermoncitos, a family tradition
A radiant personality
The effect of your words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the life of the whole world. Every man has an atmosphere or a radiation that is affecting every person in the world. You cannot escape it. Into the hands of every individual is given a marvelous power for good or for evil. It is simply the constant radiation of what a man really is. Every man by his mere living is radiating positive or negative qualities. Life is a state of radiation. To exist is to be the radiation of our feelings, natures, doubts, schemes, or to be the recipient of those things from somebody else. You cannot escape it. Man cannot escape for one moment the radiation of his character. You will select the qualities that you will permit to be radiated…Man radiates what he is, and that radiation affects to a greater or lesser degree every person who comes within that radiation.
David O. McKay
Every person emits electromagnetic energy. A person’s thoughts are also electromagnetic energy. The human body, especially the brain, is actually a very powerful transmitter and receiver of electromagnetic energy. This is why you feel good around some people and bad around others. Have youy ever noticed that when certain people walk into a room, you can “sense” their presence? There are methods, which have not been accepted by the scientific community, which show the electromagnetic field around people and things. These technologies show the positive and negative effects of lectromagnetic energy.
- Kevin Trudeau
Another energy related to electromagnetic energy is ions. Just like in anything, there are good ions and bad ones…good energy and bad. The harmful ones make us feel horrible and fatigued and can suppress your immune system. Some more obvious other bombardments of bad energy (besides bad people) are: cell phones, electric power lines, loud noises, micro wave ovens, freeway traffic, inappropriate music and movies.
The good news is that we can selectively ingest good ions or energy into our bodies and receive as a result, better health and healing, happiness and joy, and spiritual strength. Can you add to my list?

President McKay stated: “What you sincerely in your heart think of Christ will determine what you are…No person can study this divine personality, can accept His teachings, without becoming conscious of an uplifting and refining influence with himself.
I pray that you will avoid all evil and as much as possible, other negative forces… that you may welcome the healing powers of Christ into your lives and along the way…bless others with your righteous radiance.
