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.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZDOPQRdxJM
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.
