Let there be light. Have more powerful words ever been spoken?
Words are a form of communication that acts as a link between the non-physical and the physical world. Words are preceded only by their thoughts.
Many religious texts state that the world was created when God said, “Let there be light.”
In many ways, our focus is the light we shine upon all things. And our words are a way to communicate and reaffirm our focus to others. Since what we focus on expands, we give voice to new worlds every day.
Your words are more powerful than you realize.
This is why it is so important to control your words. Else, you may find yourself in a world that you dislike, which was created in your image.
Words Are Meaningless without You
To understand the role that words play in manifesting your reality, take a look at this quote that I love…
Words act as the link between your thoughts and the world. What’s interesting is that neither your thoughts nor your words have to be true for them to be effective in your life.
It’s the repetition that gives them meaning because, to say or even think a group of words, you must first repeatedly give them the focus/attention/light to be worth saying.
Words are meaningless, but what makes the words/phrases important are the meanings that you give them. 💡
Think Before You Speak
It is quite simple to use this to your advantage.
Speak ONLY the words that you would like manifested within your life and it will be.
Similarly, don’t speak words against yourself, others, or anything you don’t want in your reality. Doing so will actually bring these things deeper into your awareness, and ultimately, your reality.
Take this phrase for example, “Don’t eat that or you will get sick.”
By telling another this, you have weakened yourself. Although not in reality, just in your reality.
You have given voice/life/power to sickness itself. You have given it dominion over both you and others by implying that it is something that must be avoided.
Not only that, you’ve introduced to all a world where food also has power over you. You’ve created a separation of foods you should eat and those you should not.
The reason this truly does not weaken you is that you can redirect your life at any time by directly speaking for what you want to experience.
This still may take some “time”, but only because your habits and beliefs have told you that it does.
But remember, your beliefs are just based on these powerful words you’ve said, heard, or read repeatedly. So they can be changed with more words.
Maximize Your Peace by Limiting Your Words
Until you get in the habit of changing your habits at will, changing habits can come with a transitional period. This period can range from a few hours to many years depending on how focused you are on changing the habit.
During this transitional period, there will be many opportunities for you to voice your old beliefs in favor of your desired beliefs. Recognize this for what it is, but don’t give voice to it.
Hold your tongue as they say, if necessary. Since you aren’t sharing these old beliefs with others, they are not being strengthened in yourself.
You would be creating the habit of speaking what you want and not speaking what you don’t want.
By not speaking mindlessly, it makes your words more powerful because whenever you speak, it will be with conviction. Nothing but powerful words will flow out of your mouth. Others will take notice because they know that you have something important to say, else you wouldn’t say anything at all.
Even if what you now said is not yet true, many would regard it as truth. They would hold you firmly to it as well as associate you with what you are speaking. Thus they would join you in the manifestation of your spoken powerful words.
Deceiving Others Deceives Both Yourself & Others
As I mentioned earlier and as you can better understand, words don’t have to be true for them to be effective in your life.
As you’ve grown, you may have even let go of many “truths” because these “truths” no longer served you.
But what is truth and how can you know if something is true?
Truth is something that never changes and is true for all always. A simple truth is that “you are.”
The statement “you are” leaves room for all possibilities.
As soon as I attempt to define you by saying you are this or you are that, I limit what I believe you are capable of. And so I limit what I believe I’m capable of because we are made of the same simple truth.
By speaking what we do not believe to be true and passing it off as truth, we are telling our world and those in it, “Don’t believe the words that are coming out of my mouth.”
This is not necessarily bad. However, if you want to be able to say something and know without a doubt that it will come to fruition, practice speaking only what is and what will be.
The constant connection
We all have had certain people in our lives that when they say they are going to do a thing, they always do it. What’s funny about it is that even if those people didn’t truly believe the words they said, we believed the words enough for them so that they could still make it a reality.
When you are certain with your words and definite in your purpose, others will do the same for you.
We are more connected than we care to realize. What happens within, happens without. When you help others, you are helping yourself because you are creating a world of help. And thus, others will always help you.
When you deceive others, you are deceiving yourself because you are creating a world where deceit is possible. And thus, others will deceive you.
Show Compassion for Others and Their Words
Now that we agree that words are meaningless, don’t take them so personally when they are directed at you. If a phrase irritates or annoys you, it’s only because you’ve given it that meaning to you.
Everyone has not been taught how to use their words properly. Better yet, many have not been taught the effects of recklessly using their words.
You can be that teacher, not by demanding that others change, but by being an example of how to use your words to manifest suitably.
Every effect has its cause. So cause and effect are one.
When someone speaks words to you that you don’t agree with, you can do one of the following two things:
- Use this as an opportunity to politely share what you believe (or would like to believe).
- Remain silent and don’t react to what you’ve perceived.
When you react to words whether negatively or positively, you allow words to be your cause. But words are just an effect. They are the effect of thought.
Thought is just an effect of you choosing to think. Therefore you are always the cause. Don’t give away that ability, especially by speaking words that show you are not.
Remember, You Are
This article can be summarized in one sentence. Speak only what you want.
This can also imply that when you have everything, there is no need to speak. 😁
You get to create a massive world that others share in and are inspired by. Create that world. Use your words wisely.
