I found this old newsletter recently in my files from the Daily Om.
This is a topic that comes up with clients a lot. Words are energy.
What words are you speaking about yourself? Your relationships? Your finances? Your body? Your business?
The Universe is listening.
Choose your words carefully.
Words are Energy
Some of us know this instinctively, while others come to this understanding slowly. Most of us, though, speak without thinking at least some of the time, blurting out our feelings and thoughts without much regard for the words we choose to express them. When we remind ourselves that our words have an impact on the world at the level of energy, we may find within ourselves the desire to be more aware of our use of language.
A fun way to increase our sensitivity to the power of words is to simply make a list of our favorite words and notice the energy they contain. We can write them down and post them where we can see them, or we can speak them aloud, feeling them reverberate in our bodies and in the air around us. This is like learning to consciously play an instrument that we have been playing unconsciously for most of our lives, and the effect can be startling and delightful. As we grow more comfortable and confident playing the instrument of language, we will begin to compose beautiful messages, creating positive energy every time we write or speak.
I often hear people way they are “crazy busy.” That’s one I’m working to reframe. I often tell myself I’m overwhelmed. That’s another I’m practicing letting go.
What words do you need to rethink?
