Thank you, I’’m sorry, Go to hell, Please, That’s wonderful, That’s awful, That will never work, Good job…. The power of words, each one creating a vibration of its own and yet how much do we think about what we say and the effect it might have on another, the atmosphere around us, or inside us?
“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter - tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” - Mark Twain
Have you ever noticed if you’ve had an angry conversation with someone, or some kind of verbal conflict, there is this “vibe” left in the air even once the conversation is over? You might say, the air was so thick you could cut it with a knife. Have you ever wondered what that is and where that comes from? I’m not saying I have the answer to that question, this is just food for thought, bringing to light that maybe we should pay more attention to what we say and how we say it. We speak and molecules form, energy is created, molecules of joy and love or anger and despair the choice is ours. I think that is what we feel in the air after a conversation. It’s an actual combining of energies which form vibrational molecules which linger in the air. Crazy idea? Maybe, but maybe it’s worth some thought. Go to a comedy club and the air is filled with laughter and fun it’s contagious and feels good. Or have you ever gone into a place a house, a club, a restaurant and said “there’s something about the vibe here” where does that come from? Molecules lingering in the air perhaps? As I said, I’m not a scientist who has the answers to this but I’m a thinker who is willing to look at things differently and if you’re still reading this then obviously you are willing to do the same or you at least have a curious mind and a good imagination. You know what Einstein said about that: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Words can inspire, destroy, enlighten, heal, calm, disturb, irritate and more. Think of words as little containers that contain energy and every time you say something you are opening that little container and emptying it out into the atmosphere and most times, we are directing that little container of energy at someone. In writing this article, I am opening little containers of energy with the words I’m using and in reading this you are absorbing that energy on some level. So, if you work on it, you can harness the power of your words and have those little containers be filled with things like - hope, peace, love, joy, enthusiasm or just the opposite, the choice is yours to make. Once you realize that you absorb the energy behind the words you say, hear or read, you can then watch what you say, stay away from negative and destructive talk coming from others and be sure to read inspiring, and uplifting words.
We are so used to having knee-jerk verbal reactions to things every day that for the most part people don’t realize the power they have and the vibrations that they are putting out into the world when they speak. It just becomes “OK” to react and say things like “oh, that’s too bad” or “how awful” or “the world is just a mess.” Each of those responses has its own flavor, its own rate of vibration and will leave both the speaker and the listener with a bit of the residue from such statements. Why talk like that? How does it help anyone? What good does it do? If everyone thought about it and started putting out only good positive thoughts and words into the world, who knows what shift might happen? There is a phenomena called collective consciousness that is actually being studied and researched. When there is a large number of people believing the same thing or thinking the same thought/s there is a power behind that mass consciousness that can actually change things, repair cells, stop violence etc…. So it might be time to decide which side of the consciousness meter you want to be on.
“If our collective consciousness reaches a place of peace, harmony, laughter and love. It will be a different world.” - DC
Here’s what’s great about becoming aware of this, you can turn it all around and choose your words more wisely and with more conscious thought. It will take vigilance and effort but it’s a worthy task and will make a big difference in your life and the lives of those around you if you decide to take your power back over the words you speak and how you speak them.
Here’s an example of how a different approach to what you say might have a different effect. Let’s say you are meeting a friend and you get stuck in traffic, so you wind up getting to the meeting place 30 minutes late. Now, you can immediately say “I’m so sorry, I was stuck in this horrible traffic, and no one would let me in the lane, people are so selfish, and I’m never late but I’m telling you the traffic was just beyond awful.” OR you might say, “thank you so much for waiting for me, I am really so happy to be here with you and couldn’t wait to see you. I just really couldn’t wait to get here.” See the difference? Feel the difference? One is a reliving of the unpleasant traffic and being late and the other approach is filled with gratitude for the positive side of it all.
Words are actually “things” they have energy and are imbued with a vibration which is determined by who is saying it and the feeling and intent behind it.
I leave you with this:
Before you speak THINK
T - Is it True
H - Is it Helpful
I - Is it Inspiring
N - Is it Necessary
K - Is it Kind.
