Words we write or speak have a life of there own… rippling into the expanse of the universe.
The written or spoken words we use carry meaning, as well as energy, from ourselves to others. When we write a poem, a love letter, a song, make a journal entry, or write a story, etc., whatever the case, these words have a life of their own. Take music for example, music creates waves and energy. The energy behind a song can change your mood; it can be inspiring and uplifting or it can be the opposite. The words we choose have life and they can have an impact on people around the world.
Some of us have heard the phrase “be careful what you speak” because it just might happen. I remember hearing this phrase from my grandmother “Sweet one, be careful of what you speak. Words speak life.” Now, as a child, I didn’t understand what that even meant at the time. I remember hearing the elders and the preacher in church saying “Call those things that are not as though they were.” Translation: speak life into what you are declaring to be.
I remember as I got older and listened to elders in the neighborhood coaching younger parents on the importance of speaking positive words to and about their children. Words to inspire and uplift them, to be encouraging, to teach them early on, words— spoken or written really do matter.
When we remind ourselves that our words have an impact on the world, we may find within ourselves the desire to be more aware of our use of language.
A fun exercise I enjoy is reading positive affirmations. The power and energy they contain is priceless. I often write them down and post them where I can see them or I speak them aloud.
There are endless beautiful messages yet to be written to create positive energy.
