Most of us believe everything we say. When we say something we believe it because the spoken word gets charged with energy; it gets charged with power.
This power can be used to hurt and destroy or to empower and heal. How are you using this power on others? But most importantly, how are you using this power on yourself?
Charged vs empty words
Charged words come from the deepest part of you with emotion and vibe. Most of the time positive charged words come from your Soul or from your conscious awareness when you’re paying careful attention to what you’re saying and how you’re saying it, and they always feel good or true to you.
Negative charged words usually come from the rummaging mind especially when there have been unpleasant emotions that the mind has been thinking over and over until they turn in to false monsters.
Neutral or indifferent words are also spoken all the time. Although they’re still words, one can feel they are empty with no charge at all.
The kind of charged words that come out of your mouth are usually directly correlated to how you feel emotionally. If you feel regret, guilt, depression or sadness, most of the words you speak will be charged with those emotions you are feeling. If you feel angry, insecure, annoyed or indifferent, most of the words you speak will be charged with those emotions you are feeling. But if you are feeling optimistic, content, happy, forgiving, wise and loving, most of the words you speak will be charged with those emotions.
So, pay attention to how you’re feeling emotionally before you speak to others, but most importantly, before you speak to yourself.
Use positive charged words to empower and heal yourself
As a powerful creator that you are, you should be paying more attention to what you say to yourself. When you affirm something through words, either positive or negative, it’s like you’re asking the genie in the bottle to make it come true for you, and so your wish is granted. So be careful what you’re asking for.
Knowing the tremendous power you have in your words, should make it easier for you to begin treating yourself better.
How do you call yourself when you make a mistake? Do you say “Oh you dummy!” Or do you say “oh well, that’s interesting”? Notice the charge of self-blame in the first response compared to the charge or openness in the second one.
Remember, you’re always who you say you are. Who do you say you are? Take a look at these expressions, slowly read them and pay attention to how each one of them feels in your body:
Did you notice the difference? Did you notice how each one feels? If you have a strong connection with your Self, you must have had a kick in the stomach every time you affirmed the negative charged expressions. That bad feeling is a sign of your true Self not agreeing with that affirmation.
Once you know this information you cannot help it but be more conscious of what you say to yourself. So, make sure you are kind and compassionate to yourself please, this is another way of showing love for your Self.
Remember, you are your most precious possession, so how are you going to treat yourself? What are you going to say to yourself?
It will take time but with minute-by-minute practice you will become a master of your own words and a master of your own feelings. Do not rely on others to hear what you need to hear, they’re already struggling with their own war of words in their minds.
Use positive charged words to empower and heal others
Now that you know how to be kind and compassionate to yourself, you can then reach out and help others. Although the best way to help others is to show them through your example that it is possible to have a good life, still some of them might come to you for some words.
When this happens, make sure that you use the same evaluation method, the feeling in your gut, to determine the charge of the words you are offering to them.
I also recommend you to pay attention to the charge of their words more than to what they’re saying. Do not go about judging, criticizing or bring them out in the open, but with patience, kindness and compassion, and only when they ask you to, you’re going to translate to them the energy of what you are hearing.
Maybe they don’t even realize the energy they’re carrying around themselves and a small reflection from you can help them make a small change in their lives which may help to bring some healing to them. But remember, you have to work on yourself first.
Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.” —Lisa M. Hayes
Now you know how important and powerful it is to pay attention to how you feel and what you say to yourself, especially when those words can be used to destroy or empower. So, what are you saying to yourself this very moment?
