Words hold power, therefore what we do with them can change our whole world or at least our little part of it.
As I’ve talked about before everything is energy and everything has a vibration. Words are no different, but not every word will have a vibration. Consider how words affect your mood, the images they create in your mind. For example, the word “daffodil” might bring images of yellow flowers, springtime, and new growth, whereas “prison” might bring thoughts of confinement, reform etc.
Writers of books, films or scripts use their choice of words, to hook their audiences and to tell their tales.
Also, think about Songs, their lyric words have the power to connect us to our memories. When we hear the songs from our past we can be triggered and taken back within our memories to our past, stirring up all sort of feelings and emotions. For example, a song played at the school disco, in our teenage years or a lullaby, that you sang to your child.
“Words have magic. Spells and curses. Some of them, the best of them, once said change everything.”― Nora Roberts, Jewels of the Sun
Writing them down
When we write things down we give them extra power. For example, we write our shopping list to aid our memory. Writing in a journal can help us to arrange our thoughts and feelings to make sense of. Imagine if you got a phone call from the Tax office saying you owed money. If you are like me, you might query a phone call and the chat that went along with that. But a written letter would be more powerful.
Scammers on email rely on this tactic and that we don’t read everything in front of us. So they use keywords to make the email seem authentic. To hook you in and trust you’ll believe it enough to take the action clicking a link or sending them money.
Writing down our wishes or desires can be beneficial.
The act of writing things down is telling your brain this is information is something new. By repeating this act, we are adding our focus our efforts, increasing the power behind it and telling our brains that it is important to us.
These writings can then become something physical we can use for example sending birthday wishes in a card. Writing a spell to release someone or something that no longer serves you, can then physically be destroyed in a fire.
Words can bring us down or build us up.
Imagine if the first written word you saw was the vibe, you set for yourself the whole day, good or bad. If you reach for your social media hit first thing in the morning, it’s full of messages of negativity, the horrors of the world. As well as what someone had for dinner last night. Choose your mindset for the day find ways to inspire your creativity, uplift your mood – messages on mugs, wall art etc.
You can’t control what others write, especially on social media, where people think it gives them free rein to voice their opinions and belittle people that they may never have even met. But we can make the effort to control what expose ourselves to.
Choose the words you use today carefully these words hold power. They’ll affect you, your friends and family and ripple out affecting everyone.
