Words can do all these things and much more. They have the potency to redefine personalities, lives, and entire communities.
Excerpt from THE POWER OF OUR WORDS:
Words are made up of letters from an alphabet that constitutes the building blocks for our words. Words are part of a universal language; therefore, they carry an energy vibration.
Words, along with the images they create, are a direct line of communication with the subconscious mind. They are the template and prescription for the process of manifestation. Herein, as I understand it, is the true and full power of our words. This will be discussed further on.
Words can determine our feelings, our outlook on life, our perception of reality, and our thinking on a level of communication that propels us into action.
Words can completely uplift, delight, and catapult us into a desirable mental state that keeps us in the present moment, fully in charge and ready to act at a moment’s notice.
Words are proactive in nature and can offer solutions. When the words we use are empowering, we and others also feel empowered.
Here are just a few ways we use words:
To describe our thoughts, images, and feelings
To communicate a message.
To express ourselves
To communicate and interact with others
To associate certain events in our lives
To associate meaning, intention, and tone, to name only a few
To keep a record of things
To write books, poetry, or exams, for example
To create advertising material
To tell stories
To create programs
To set goals
To create affirmations
The importance of words and their impact on ourselves, our environment and life itself is quite evident. Everything in our world came to be by the use of words and images.
The words we use every day are the means by which we program and/or condition our life. What we think, say, and do in this moment determines what we experience every day because we can only create in the present moment. So, for me, the power of our words and the images they create are utterly important. The more powerful the words are, the more powerful the images and vice versa. The selection of powerful words and images is conducive to a feeling of confidence in achieving personal mastery. It allows us to live an extraordinary life in service to the universal intelligence for the highest good of all.
How we live, move, and have our being in this world depends on how we use our words and translate them into actions that are beneficial for each and every one of us. We have a responsibility to be fully conscious of our thoughts, words, actions, and deeds. Individually as well as collectively, our words constitute a power house.
In our communication, it is essential that our words convey the meaning we wish to impart. If we considered our words as elixirs, we would constantly be refining our communication skills. We would truly say what we mean and mean what we say. Our communication would be clear and pure and our words absolutely empowering.
Confucius once said: “Put mind in gear, before putting tongue in motion.” This wisdom is noteworthy. How often have we heard the saying: “Think before you speak”? Putting this wisdom into practice translates into a more meaningful conversation as everyone who is listening receives the quality of our time, effort, and ingenuity. It also allows for a more captivating conversation and gives it a quintessential quality. Our conversation becomes the perfect embodiment of our breath because it expresses our essential truth. The breath we inhale, exhale, and use to communicate is Divine in nature.
Words have a powerful and transforming effect in that they can contribute to a more peaceful existence, optimal health, and well-being. They also enable us to become responsible citizens of the universe, thereby creating a much better environment in which to live, move, and have our being.
Accordingly, understanding the meaning of our words is paramount to making ourselves understood.
To be fully responsible for the words I use, I investigate what each word stands for in order to create a vocabulary that reflects my intention and the proper meaning I wish to convey. The following quote from an unknown author makes this point:
“A word is the final expression of a thought on the physical plane and, in other words, a word is a final creative act; and the word that you or I use is really indicative of our state of consciousness.” (author unknown)
