We can use the power of words for good, or for bad. Words can create, or they can destroy. Once you learn the true power of your words you will consider what you are saying the next time you speak.
Words are created from vibrations. They are a thought that has come to life.
You can make someone sick, feel bad, you can make them cry, or make them very happy and feel loved with the power of your words. Most of us have heard the story about how several different coworkers went up to a guy, they work with, and told him he did not look so good.
Let’s call him Bob. Well, a little while later another coworker came up and asked if he was feeling ok. This went on for a couple of hours. Soon Bob started to feel sick. Bob went to his boss and said he needed to go home. He was not feeling well.
Of course, there was nothing wrong with bob, it was the power of suggestion, the power of spoken words from people he trusted.
Before your words come out of your mouth the thought had to be in your head. You can really get an idea of what someone is thinking, and what they are attracting into their life, by the words they speak. Everything we say either affects us or someone else. You can use this power for good or evil.
As the saying goes, with great power comes great responsibility, use your words wisely. Yes… words have great power.
There was a famous experiment done with water. Dr. Emoto proved that words have a vibration and will alter the structure of water crystals. He proved that you can actually alter the molecular structure of water with words.
You can Google the entire experiment but basically, he placed several vials of water and placed labels on the vials with negative words on them. The other half he placed positive words. The words on the label were also spoken and repeated out loud. He then viewed the frozen water crystals under a microscope.
The ones with positive words were beautiful looking while the negative destructive words were very ugly, deformed water crystals. He also has a book called The Hidden Messages in Water, if you are interested.
So here is something to think about. The human body is 60% water, our lungs are 83% water, the brain and heart are 73% water. Since we are mostly water, it makes you think what our words are doing to us? I hope you will think before you speak next time. Are we altering the water in our bodies or others?
We know we can influence other people with the things we say. Let’s say you are going to an event, you tell your friend you’re going to love this, we are going to have a great time. The pictures that start forming in their mind is that of having a great time. You both do.
Of course, you can reverse this and be destructive by talking bad. You are on your way to meet someone and you say this guy’s an idiot, you are not going to like him, he’s got a bad attitude.
The person you just said that to already has formed an opinion about someone they never met. When they do meet, they’re more than likely going to seek out the negative in this person and say…yes you were right. Can’t stand him.
Think about all the times you say I’m an idiot why did I do that? I’ll never get this right, I’ll never meet the right man or women. I just can’t get ahead, I can’t make enough money. Now, if you took all that and reversed it things would begin to change for you. You would attract what you desire in your life. You need to change your thoughts and words if you want to create a better reality.
Thinking Before You Speak
I hope after reading this article you will think before you speak negatively. Gossip, complaining and negative self-talk is very destructive. Words have energy. Think about that group of friends that sit around and gossip about other people. Ever walk into a room and just feel that people have been talking about you?
Words have energy. They vibrate through the air. We are made of vibrations.
Other people feel the same thing when you talk bad or negative about them. How about the group of friends that sit around and talk about how bad things are. How bad the economy is. Corrupt politics, how we are ruining the world. There are no jobs out there, people are bad, and so on and so on.
Just remember, the way the law of attraction works is, you attract more of what you think, feel, and talk about. Choose your words wisely.
Let’s talk about verbal abuse. The statistics on verbal abuse is staggering. I am not going to go into the subject too deeply, but your words can easily crush another person. Many times it is worse than physical abuse. People that were abused when they were growing up carry the same behavior over into their adult life.
Many times two people that meet our attracted to each other because they came from a similar background, without knowing it. One is the verbal abuser and the other one so used to being abused they attract the abuser.
I’m sure we all know a friend that finally gets out of an abusive relationship only to find another one just like it, or worse. This is the law of attraction in action.
The Power of the Words “I am”
The words “I am” are very powerful. Perhaps the two most powerful words we know. If you use affirmations starting with “I am” you can, and will, begin to completely change your life. No matter where you are right now you can turn everything around 180° and create your life better than you ever dreamed it could be.
Get rid of negative words like I can’t, I shouldn’t do that, I need this, I’m not good enough, I don’t deserve that. Replace those with I am.
I am powerful, I am wealthy, I am creating my own world, I am in control, I am loved, I am healthy. Positive affirmations like these should be used every day. Start your morning with your own list of affirmations.
Words and the Law of Attraction
Words, thoughts, and feelings create our reality. look around you, everything you see was drawn to you by you. You attracted it all. Every bit of it.
You create your reality. The good, the bad, all of it it’s all because of you, like it or not. If you want things to change in your life it all begins with your thoughts and your words.
We live in a world filled with vibrations right down to the smallest particle. Everything in our world vibrates with energy. Words, sounds, speech are just vibrations.
Everything you say goes out into the universe. You get back what you send out. Continually speaking negative words will attract more of the same.
Let’s say you constantly talk about sickness. You hang around with your group of friends and talk about some person that got some terrible disease. How bad they are doing. How terrible they look.
You start to worry about the same thing happening to you. Every time your with your group of friends you ask how much worse this person is. The more you talk about something the more you are likely to attract the same thing for you.
Many people attract diseases through their words and thoughts. If they knew how the law of attraction works they would not talk about such things.
The same principles apply to everything. If you worry about getting in a car accident, getting robbed, going broke, not being able to pay bills, whatever you worry about will attract more of the same to you.
Not to mention speaking like this will definitely make you feel bad. Why not turn it around and speak positive words about everything
Power of Words in the Bible
We have learned about the power of words a long time ago. It is written clearly in the Bible. I did some quick research and in a very short time found over 100 Verses in the Bible that speak about words. The power of the tongue, corrupt talk, rash words, etc.
Matthew 15:18 But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Prov. 18:21).
Next time you pray think about what you are saying. Are you creating? Is it going to bring you or someone else a better future? When you pray do you ask? Beg? Please bring me this… I really need this right now.
Instead, you should be giving thanks. Even if you do not currently have your desire, give thanks and know it is on its way.
I will talk about this more and another post but, through my studies and research on the law of attraction, I learned a great deal about the Bible and the words written in it.
I am not talking about the Bible most of us know. The one most of us know has been edited heavily. It is a condensed version from many other books. Some say 14 others will say 27 or more.
I have searched out and found many of these old books and went through them. The information that was left out is amazing. Some of the most popular phrases in our modern Bible are condensed versions of much more detailed writings.
How to use the law of attraction is clearly spelled out. However, for some reason, most of that was left out of our edited version. Why?
Power of Words in Advertising
Let’s face it, we are surrounded by negative media. Billboards, radio, TV, movies it’s everywhere. Bad news sells. Watching the news nightly is a sure way to put you in a negative mood. Corrupt politics, murderers, traffic accidents, terrible weather. It’s all there for your viewing pleasure. Ever notice how excited newscasters get when there’s a major hurricane coming?
They will tell us what we need to know to stay alive and broadcast it 24 hours a day. What they actually do is cause a big panic, stores sell out, gas runs out, fights will start over water at the local stores. The negative media is powerful. I’m not saying you should not be informed, but don’t get sucked into their negative reporting.
Watch TV for a couple of hours. You will be bombarded by advertising for lawyers, pills, new drugs, lawyers suing about the terrible side effects of the new pills. Medical conditions, back problems, sleeping problems, car insurance, life insurance, are there any good commercials out there?
Advertising companies hire expert copywriters to carefully craft their advertising. They choose the exact words and phrases that will influence people to either buy, pick up a phone or whatever action they desire. Words can influence viewers or listeners to purchase a certain product. Ever notice when you’re in a store the brand names stand out to you. Yes … words are powerful
Let’s take a look at most of the movies that are out there currently. Very few of them are uplifting, encouraging and will make you feel better after watching them. Sure movies are entertaining, but if you are constantly bombarded by car chases, shootings, murderers, robberies, and death, eventually it will influence your thoughts and feelings.
Bad news sells. Look at the news, the media. 95% of the time all they report on is bad news. If you want to feel better go on a media fast.
We did a few media fast experiments and the results were stunning. People started feeling better, eating less, and sleeping better.
They were in much better moods and more positive than they have been in a long time. Since they had more free time much of our group started exercising and reading. Their stress levels decreased and their relationships increased.
Constantly hearing negative bad words from the media is not doing your health any good. Giving up the TV and other media is hard since we are so conditioned by it. However, in many cases, people that do, do not go back to it or drastically cut down the amount of time they spend watching TV.
Subliminal messages are nothing more than positive affirmations that are recorded just below our normal hearing range. They are still spoken words. Your conscious mind does not hear them but your subconscious mind definitely does.
The power of words has made us who we are. When we are born we are a blank slate. Our subconscious mind is empty. We get programmed between birth and the age of 7 by our parents, teachers and other surroundings.
The words they say to you get locked in your subconscious mind and you may go through your entire life believing something that probably isn’t true. If your parents, even kiddingly constantly called you stupid or dumb or maybe they said you’re never going to grow up to be anything, then it probably became true.
This is how words have set us up for failure before we even had a chance.
The same self-defeating programs run in our subconscious mind day after day, 24 hours a day, keeping us down. Since we run 95% of our day on our subconscious mind it is no wonder why it’s so hard to change anything in our life permanently. Words can create or destroy. You can also use words for great good, especially in yourself.
30-day Challenge – I Dare You…
Considering how powerful words are I challenge you to go the next 30 days thinking about the words that come out of your mouth. Every time, before you speak, think about what you are about to say. Is it negative, or is it positive? Is it going to help someone or is it a useless destructive comment.
Most of us will say the first thing that comes into our mind. Without thinking about it. We have been influenced by the media, our friends, and our surroundings to say whatever we want whenever we want. Freedom of speech….right?
I want you to also consider everything you say out loud about yourself. Think every time before you speak.
If you do this you will change everyone’s views about you. You will seem like a different person. In fact, you will be. People love a positive person. You will automatically become someone that people are naturally drawn to.
Our words matter. It may not seem like it, but everything we say out loud influences someone or something. Before speaking take a few moments to consider what you are about to say. Stop gossiping, stop complaining. Next time you’re around your group of friends pay attention to the way they are speaking it’s almost always negative. Turn the conversation around by saying nice positive things.
It takes a little practice and may seem odd at first if you are used to talking negatively most of the time. It’s actually funny when you do this in a group, watch what happens.
Most people get quiet and don’t know what to say, you throw them off of their game. Start talking about how nice and great someone is that they are bashing and they don’t know what to do.
Why do we miss-use our words? In my opinion, most of us do not know the real power behind them. We do not know they create our future. We use them haphazardly with no thought into anything we say. Talking about other people, swearing, talking bad about politics, the place you work at. All that is going to attract more of the same.
Complain enough about something around other people and you will start to influence them. Nothing good can come out of this. Eventually, you will attract what you’re complaining about. This is how the law of attraction works. It is the language of the universe.
Think of it like this. The source, the universal power, or whatever you want to call the higher power, hears you. It does not know any difference between good or bad it only delivers. If you sit and complain and miss-use your words it is going to say, okay this is what you want, no problem here is more of it. Glad I could help.
Ever meet a person and within a few minutes you know if you’re going to like them, or not. The words that come streaming out of their mouth will immediately influence your opinion about them. When you meet someone that is happy, talks well of others has nothing but good things to say, you are automatically drawn to.
The way that your life is currently going is a reflection upon the words that you have been thinking and speaking.
All you have to do is look around you to know what you have been attracting. Same goes for another person. Look around them, you know what they have been thinking and speaking about.
Thinking about what we are about to speak is much easier than controlling our thoughts. If you control your speech for 30 days you will be absolutely amazed at the changes in your life…Try it.
