Words are powerful symbols. Each word anchoring a specific energy within it when spoken. And within a definition, each word may be holding several meanings. However, the true power of any word rests within the meaning that we chose to give it with our emotions. We can change the meaning of a word simply by holding that word differently in our hearts and minds.
Words that linger in our minds, or strike our hearts, powerfully influence our thoughts. Making the use of our words similar to waving a magical wand simply through the use of meaningful speech. And equally powerful, we can chose to use our words to empower others.
Within our mental spaces, we use words to describe our feelings, thoughts, wishes and prayers. Words can equally bless us or harm, depending on how they’re used. This is why it’s so important to really consider the words that we use and entertain in our speech. Especially, when we are engaged in self-reflection or self-talk. So much can shift when we ignite the power within us by supporting ourselves with positive imagery and words.
To change our speech, we must first change the way we think. The thoughts we have, come from the way we perceive ourselves and the world. Often this perception is a mixture with parts of our culture, our family values and our experiences, and anything we’ve feed our minds through the media. We often form opinions that not openly discussed based on these perceptions that can misguide us from seeing clearly.
Equally the words we use to describe others can be very reflective of how we feel within ourselves. So, it’s important to be mindful of our speech and our thoughts. Some of us are still working on editing our responses to heal inner wounds that will not be forgotten. Others are mindful so long as they are not pushed beyond their comfort level. While, still others deflect all accountability through absolute denial that leads to great self-harm, as well as harming others out of willful ignorance.
Our words are our own. Each of us is molded by the thought we entertain. Nothing is innocuous, or without cause. We are responsible to ourselves, but also to each other. What we think for ourselves expands outwardly. All that we speech to ourselves reveals our world and equally mirrors our expectations.
We can make such amazing, immediate, long-effecting change by simply focusing our thoughts and being mindful of our words. It sounds simple and it is. However, the challenge is breaking the old thought patterns or beliefs that limit and destroy opportunity before any action is taken.
It is through ‘listening’ to ourselves, to the words we use, that we become aware. Are we being accurate within our speech? Do the words we’re using actually reflect what we’re meaning to say? Are we repeating some message that is underserving the intentional change we wish to achieve?
Sometimes, taking a step back allows the change in perspective that’s needed to see a better solution. It’s not that instantly you know how to fix everything. It’s the space that is created that allows inspiration to enter. We can create that space for ourselves by choosing words that open doors to new worlds.
Having a supportive inner dialogue can make all the difference in the way a challenge is met. This does not negate the need for self-critique or honest inquiry. In fact, it encourages authenticity by allowing true reflection on meaning. What it means to you. That is a different process than simply repeating positive words without thinking of what anything means, a sort of escapism from inner reality.
It is important to pay attention to our words. Each time we hear ourselves speaking something that doesn’t feel right. Stop and consider, if the words being used are accurate. When we cultivate speaking our truth, we become stronger and more resilient. It’s understanding the power within our minds to create attention that can be focused through our words.
Our choice to cultivate health begin with healthy thoughts that start with the words we use to describe ourselves. How we hold anything within our minds leads to how we define it. The meaning not only defines, it invites how we relate to ourselves. This is largely based on the meaning or feelings words create as we use them to describe something.
As a writer, I often enjoy the use of words in their ability to carry forward a though, feeling or visualization. As a metaphysician, I know the power that is held within the words that we choose. The words that we entertain both in our speech and especially in our thoughts dictate our experience.
With words we have all the tools we need to transform our lives. The way that we phase a situation can mean the difference in the way it is viewed. Our words liberate through the value they inherently displace. The words we chose to use play a powerful role in directing our lives. Why not direct them towards healing and success.
To communicate our perception, our heritage and cultural group, we must also think about how those words may affect others. Words are very powerful, especially when used with awareness. When we understand the power held within our speech, it becomes a great tool for transcendence and global change.
There are ways to use words that can lead to understanding when we are first willing to listen. Listening to how we speak to ourselves is the first step. As we are respectful to ourselves, it becomes second nature to respect our dreams, hopes and wishes, as well as other people.
So much change happens through the use of the right spoken words. For with the awareness of our words true meaning follows all demonstrations of their worth. Life’s potential is said to have been spoken into form with the phrase ‘Let there be Light”. What magical potential could be set forth with the right words? The value we claim for ourselves first arrives with the words we keep.
Let the words that we speak to ourselves be ones that fill us with integrity, beauty, strength, health and harmony. May the words we share with each other be ones of peace, justice, honesty, respect and compassion. Remembering, each word is an opportunity to magically transform.
