The energy of words, thoughts and intentions- blessings or curses
“It ain’t what you say, it’s the way that you say it” went the song. This was also told to me by one of my school teachers when I was growing up. I couldn’t quite grasp what they meant by this at the time but thought they were commenting on my tone in how I said something, being, at the time, a surly teenager. It wasn’t till I got older and, maybe, a bit wiser, that I fully understand what was actually being said to me.
Words carry enormous power to them. Words can, and do, change worlds.
Look at manifesting, praying, affirmations, taking an oath and such other ceremonies. The words are so very important in making the impact of the intention behind them.
Intention is a key factor in how we express ourselves verbally. Every word that comes out of our mouths or written down, start with a thought and it’s from that thought, we try and find the words which validates or explains that thought. Give that thought a feeling and out comes the words in the style of the emotion. The words are the vessels that contain the emotion and thought.
Ever gone into a room where some people have been arguing and felt the energy?
You don’t really have to be psychic to feel that uncomfortable atmosphere as you pick up on the energy of those words still in the air and the emotion that went with them.
The opposite of that scenario is when someone has something joyful happen in their life. Maybe it’s a new baby to the family or a celebration. The energy felt in those situations are light and joy.
If a friend wants to share one of their life situations with you and you choose to see it in a negative light, and you respond in a negative way, that’s akin as cursing them. Yet if you chose to respond to that friend’s situation in a positive light, that counts as a blessing.
Respectfully disagreeing with how situations are perceived is very different then offering a negative response.
When making affirmations, the words used are positive and precise, as behind those words, it is the intent to be and feel positive. If you are told “You’ll never be able to achieve that”, you can put an affirmation out to “Achieve anything you choose to” so rather than letting the negative words pull you down, you turn it round into something that works on a positive level for you.
Affirmations are great ways of directing your mind towards a more uplifted state and can remind you of just how special you really are. Affirmations are a way of saying ‘yes’ to something you want in life. They can be written down, sung or spoken out loud. Repeating affirmations can help with making your own energy field become more receptive to your Higher Self and the knowledge already within you.
When casting a spell, intentions are, literally, spelt out. Imagine if you wanted to lose weight, you wouldn’t just say you wanted to lose weight, as if the spell worked, it could be through a gastric virus and yes, there would be a weight loss but not in the best way. But if you were to cast a spell to lose weight in a healthy way, then the results would be much better!
When manifesting, the way you chose to put your words together can affect the outcome of what’s manifested. Using words wisely and focusing on your goal with positive intentions will help in achieving your dreams and goals. Along with the words that are used, let the feelings behind those words shine through, so you actually get to feel what it would be like once manifested.
When we start to send out what we want to be manifested, the Universe listens and will then start to send signs and opportunities for us to notice. It’s being open to these that help with manifesting. So being clear with your focus, intent and wording, really helps in getting what you want.
Negative self -talk, we all do it but what does it really achieve?
It affects all of our relationships as we perceive our world from a place of negativity so everything we experience will be tainted with a negative sheen.
How can we break through the negative self-talk?
By acknowledging and accepting that we can find ourselves in situations where our needs are not being met and that is okay as not every situation will meet our needs. It’s when we feel vulnerable that the negative thoughts can be produced and when that negativity gets going, we start berating ourselves and/or others.
Becoming mindful of where the seeds of negativity get sown is a very useful tool in dealing with this.
Be honest with yourself to why you think and feel this way. You can even thank these thoughts, thus acknowledging them as they do have meaning to them.
A great piece of advice I was given about how to deal with those types of thoughts was to see them as the opposite of a positive way of telling you something. For example, the thought you may have is that people aren’t friendly; this could be telling you that you would like be around people who were like-minded so you could enjoy more social interaction or that you were feeling lonely and wanted to make new friends.
Once we can start understanding the power of our thoughts, our words and intentions, this can make our world and that of others, a more wonderful place to be….so be it!
