The Power of Words

“Words have the power to destroy or heal.

When words are true and kind, they can change the world.”

~ Buddha ~

Words, words everywhere in what you hear, speak, and think  …and what you drink?!?

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s book, “Hidden Messages in Water” chronicles the effects of words on water.  Dr. Emoto discovered that words affect the formation of water crystals.  Beautiful words create elegant, intricate crystals, and unappealing words form unattractive and misshapen crystals.  Test it yourself by creating an easy home experiment utilizing cooked rice.  (Details on conducting the experiment are included at the end of the video.)

How is Dr. Emoto’s work significant for you?  Water defines over seventy percent of the human body, which means everything that is heard, spoken, or thought creates a vibration in water affecting every single cell in the body.  How?  The human body is a group of atoms vibrating so quickly that it gives the illusion of being a solid mass.  Jefferson Lab estimates the average human body is 7*1027 atoms (7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000) – that is seven billion billion billion atoms.  Wow!  Water’s hydrogen atoms form polar bonds to the oxygen atoms to create a web.  Huh?  Water creates a network that keeps the body’s atoms connected while still allowing them to vibrate in place.

Words are also give great significance in the spiritual realm.  Most religions reference, in on form or another, that the power of the word is crucial to the creative process.  Christianity notes that God created the heavens and the earth with a word.  “God said…”, and it was done.  There was no magic wand, no fairy dust, rather simply words that brought all creating into existence.  What mighty words!   Additionally, the power of the word was bestowed on humans when God created man in His image and likeness, “in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  That includes You, too!

Why are words so powerful?

Has a friend every called you moments after thoughts of him/her popped into your brain?  Have you thought about a new car, and suddenly you see it everywhere?  Why?  Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of “The Thrones of Divinity”, appearing in What the Bleep, states, “Our human brain processes 400 billion bits of information every second; however, we are only aware of about 2000 of those billions of bits of data.”  How, then, does the brain determine how to filter the data it receives?   Words.  Words that are heard, spoken, and thought create receptors, homing beacons, in the brain, which the brain utilizes as a guide to filter information.  The brain is a dutiful servant and will focus on what its master tells it to.

How do we choose our words?

The selection criteria for the words we choose to hear, speak, and say is belief.  Belief is defined by The Princeton Dictionary as, “any cognitive content held as true”.  Notice it carefully distinguishes, “held as true” versus stating “is true”.  Beliefs exist solely in the mind requiring validation to exist. and the ego is in charge of collecting information to support the belief system.  The ego messages the brain, and the brain creates a filter to collect information to support the beliefs, and, voila!  Words.  (Please see the upcoming blog, “The Power of Belief” for more information on beliefs).

How can the power of words help for me?

Do you know race car drivers are taught to focus on where they’d like their car to go because it keeps them safe?  (Thank You, Tony Robbins, for sharing.)  Focus on where you’re going, not where you’ve been or where you are.  Both faith and the law of attraction highlight claiming what it is you desire.  Why?  It keeps your mind focused on where you’d like to be and ultimately determines where you are going.  Words create vibrations that attract similar words that attract atoms that group together to eventually form something.  The experience your words shape is your choice.  Hear, speak, and think only those things you’d like to manifest in your life, and be patient as your thoughts shape your new reality …and enjoy your daydreams in the meantime.

Still skeptical?  Okay.  Write down a list of ten words – five positive and five negative.  Focus on one word for a few minutes.  Allow it to roll around in your brain and on your tongue.  Think about the meaning that word has for you.  Pay attention to how your body responds.  Are you breathing deeply or shallowly?  Is your posture straight or slouched?  Are you smiling or not?  Your body is automatically responding to the vibration of the meaning you’ve attached to the word.

What if it seems like nothing is happening?

Research has proven the human brain cannot distinguish between something it has actually seen versus something it has imagined.  Images for the brain are incredibly powerful and help determine the words chosen to describe them.  It may help to create a clear picture of what you’d like to experience then focus your thoughts on that picture.  People sometimes experience resistance when there is a subconscious fear or “worth” issues around receiving.  See if you can coax the fear to the surface and shift its focus to what you truly desire because your words will follow.  Fear is simply love confused.  (I’ll include a helpful tip for this in a future blog).  Keep choosing words that affirm abundance, blessing, happiness, health, and wealth in what you hear, speak, and think, and eventually things will shift.  Remember, it’s like exercising – you’re likely to see more positive results as things progress.

It’s important to be very clear about the meaning attached to words, specifically that each person attaches individual meaning to words based on their experience.  Words’ meanings are the ones the individual chooses to give them.  Example: Love is a very powerfully charged word, and most people define love by their first experience of it, which is usually either largely positive or negative.  For some it means unconditional acceptance, and they feel nurtured and cherished when someone says, “I love you.”  For others, love was wrought with expectation and not measuring up, so they feel insecure and inadequate when someone says, “I love you.”  The individual experiences their definition of “love” whenever they hear, speak, or think the word “love”.  Be clear about what your words mean by exploring the meaning you attach them, and decide if that’s a meaning you’d like to keep or redefine.  Sometimes simply attaching a more positive meaning to a word creates wonderful results.

Can words create world peace?

Research documents people with major medical conditions that defied explanation cured themselves simply by saying aloud several times a day, “I’m getting better and better every day in every way”.

Do you ever wonder if society is being brainwashed by all the negative, fear-based advertising and news in the media?  Consider how things would change if media, benefits, concerts, foundations, research centers, walk-a-thons, etc.. began celebrating, honoring, hearing, speaking, and thinking abundance, happiness, health, love, and wealth?  What if it was the Susan G. Komen foundation for Breast Health?  What if October became Breast Health Awareness month?  What if homeless became homebless to focus on them being blessed with homes forthcoming?  What if we eradicated the word “victim” and replaced it instead with “champion”?  How would the world change if everyone speaks the language of Love?

Please share this message with as many people as possible and join me in starting a global movement of celebrating positive words that inspire, heal, and uplift.  Claim your marvelous destiny and what you truly desire – abundance, happiness, health, love, wealth, etc., and you’ll begin to see changes in your life.

“I’ve got to keep breathing because tomorrow the sun will rise, and who knows what the tide will bring?”

~ Chuck Noland, Castaway ~

Do you enjoy films? I do. Very much. I especially savor movies that magically transport me to another world entirely. Amazingly, I seem to learn the most about myself in films that are far-removed from my reality, perhaps because my brain relaxes and views life from a broader perspective. The walls disintegrate, and the silly rules behind which I hide to protect myself from the illusion of fear dissolve. I dance gleefully in the garden of possibilities delighting in the luscious trees ripe for harvest. I swim freely in the ocean of peace as sunshine glistens upon me as if to say, “It’s alright.” My dreams transform into glittering stars frolicking upon an infinite ebony canvas basking in the moon’s radiance. I am transported, enthralled, and empowered by the sheer force of the human will’s survival instinct. I am inspired as determination, perseverance, and persistence emanate. My heart, much like The Grinch’s, grows exponentially as Love, once again, is the catalytic for miracles with a dual existence as both a reason to hang on and to let go. I am transported, transformed, and renter my body renewed and refreshed with greater insight into myself and deeper wisdom about life.

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged

to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”

~ Nelson Mandela ~

Castaway is the story of Chuck Noland, played by Tom Hanks, who is stranded on a desert island …for years. The story profiles the strength and innovation of the human spirit to keep pressing forward, or as Chuck says, the determination to “keep breathing”. His journey is one of courage, determination, vulnerability, and total self reliance sans modern conveniences and expert input. Chuck’s return to “normal” life is particularly striking as he finds himself lost in places that were once comfortable and familiar. “Home” and “Self” become question marks as he searches within and outside of himself to rediscover and redefine his life.

“Who am I?” “Where is home?” are two questions Castaway offers for viewers to answer for themselves, taking it a step further, inquiring, “Who would you be, and how would you define home if your world was suddenly turned upside down?” Chuck’s character is a metaphor for every person on the planet. Everyone is lost in one sense or another and searching for self and home. All people are wayward travelers plucked from the ether and gifted with the opportunity to experience the journey to self. Self is discovered through the mirrors of relationships infused in every facet of life. Every living being in existence begins with a seed, an individual blueprint, guiding it to grow into unique creation, a watermelon, a tree, an animal, a person, etc.. The primary purpose of life then becomes one of “being” in which on comes to know self .

“Fabulous, Rich, and Homeless” a television show on Planet Green, profiled several prominent, successful, wealthy social figures as they voluntarily became homeless. The arduous experiment revealed surprising results, and the participants almost unanimously cited the issue’s root stems largely from missing identity and no sense of community. It suggests a primary definition of “self” and “home”, even artificial, is crucial in developing the confidence. curiosity, and stability from which to springboard and further explore and expand one’s self-awareness.  True freedom is when one recognizes the interconnectedness of all beings, which reveals that one’s sense of self and home are ultimately however one chooses to define them independent of external circumstances.

What if we recognize we are all castaways searching for ourselves on our journey home? What if we encouraged, inspired, and uplifted one another? How would our attitudes and behaviors change if we viewed every person as a cherished friend and trusted travel companion? Would we be more open-minded and understanding toward one another? Would we be more willing to help others? Would Love unite us as one big family by celebrating our diversity as beautiful threads weaving the world’s magnificent tapestry?

I declare myself a “castaway”. I am casting away anxiety, apprehension, doubt, fear, hesitation, and judgment of others and replacing it with adventure, exploration, joy, kindness, and Love. I am casting away living as a human doing and choosing instead to live as a human being. I am releasing preconceived notions of who I think I am supposed to be and instead acting as The Creator’s Beloved. I am nurturing that special seed inside me that “knows” allowing it to grow into what it was destined to be while praising the glorious journey on which it has brought me. I am forgoing shrinking in fear and instead opening my heart in Love as a conduit for manifesting a magnificent masterpiece. I am casting away my yesterdays and tomorrows and celebrating the blessings and miracles in this moment. Here’s to doing less and being more, to knowing “self” and “home” are a choice, and to casting away fear to live in Love.

Inside Water

“Water is everything. I think this is the final chance for the human being to stay on this planet. If this time we cannot resonate with water, our human being future on this planet will dissolve.”

~ Dr. Masaru Emoto “The Hidden Messages in Water”

The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF report that more than 2.6 billion people – over 40 percent of the world’s population – do not have basic sanitation, and more than one billion people still use unsafe sources of drinking water.

What if You discovered You are unknowingly consuming contaminated water while contributing to water pollution?  That’s exactly what happens every time You consume a bottle of water.

Marcus Eriksen, director of project development at California’s Algalita Marine Research Foundation, rafted 2,000 miles down the Mississippi River on a craft constructed from plastic bottles.  He caught and ate fish during his journey, and he found bits of undigested plastic inside the fish that they had ingested from the the polluted water.  The bits of plastic come from discarded plastic bottles and plastic shopping bags.

Watch this video, and read below to learn more about what’s really in your water.

* Plastic production accounts for an estimated 4 percent of energy consumption in the U.S.
* Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year
* Nearly eight out of every 10 bottles will end up in a landfill.
* Less than 1 percent of all plastics is recycled. Almost all plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill.
* Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve energy to light a 60-watt light bulb for up to six hours.
* Recycled plastic bottles can be made into clothing, carpeting, detergent bottles and lumber.
* More than 80 percent of U.S. households have access to a plastics recycling program through curbside or community drop-off centers.
* Producing new plastic products from recycled materials uses two-thirds less energy than required to make products from raw (virgin) materials. It also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Bottled Water versus Tap & Filtered Tap Water

* Home water filtration offers better quality water than bottled.
* Home water filtration is 1/10th the cost of bottled.
* Home water filtration is far more convenient, “Pure water on tap!”
* Home water filtration is virtually pollution free!

The U.S. FDA says: “Companies that promote bottled water as being safer than tap water are defrauding the American public.”  In March of 1999, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) released a report called “Bottled Water: Pure Drink or Pure Hype?”

* City tap water can have no confirmed E.Coli or fecal coliform bacteria. FDA bottled water rules include no such prohibition (a certain amount of any type of coliform bacteria is allowed in bottled water).
* City tap water, from surface water, must be filtered and disinfected. In contrast, there are no federal filtration or disinfection requirements for bottled water.
* Most cities using surface water have had to test for Cryptosporidium or Giardia, two common water pathogens, that can cause diarrhea and other intestinal problems, yet bottled water companies have no such test.
* City tap water must meet standards for certain important toxic or cancer-causing chemicals, such as phthalate (a chemical that can leach from plastic, including plastic bottles); some in the industry persuaded FDA to exempt bottled water from the regulations regarding these chemicals.
* City water systems must issue annual “right to know” reports, telling consumers what is in their water. Bottlers successfully killed a “right to know” requirement for bottled water.

Why is water so important? Water is the vehicle that brings nourishment to your cells and connects the atoms in your body. The water in your body is affected by everything in the environment, including words and music. Dr. Masaru Emoto conducted a study shared in “The Hidden Messages in Water”, in which he analyzed the effects of words and music on water. The results are astounding.
