The Power Of Your Words




“Because even the smallest of words can be the ones to hurt you, or save you.”
Natsuki Takaya

The words we speak are powerful forces. If we could see the energy behind our words and how they command, are responded to and manifest, we would use them very carefully. Yet we use words as a method of communicating with each other and often unaware that we are also communicating on many other levels each time we speak.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me’.…. You will most probably of heard this phrase before. Yet words do have the power to hurt us. Words are a powerful force and the powerful effects of negative words cannot be underestimated. We all know how horrid and degrading it feels to be called insulting names or be told that we are stupid or deficient in some way.

Sometimes a single derogatory sentence from a parent, partner or close friend can remain stuck in the brain for life, serving, as a toxic seed that grows into a belief that one will never be good enough, smart enough, or beautiful enough. It is much harder to remove these seeds than not to plant them in the first place.

Every negative word we use against ourselves is potentially a deadly weapon. It has the power to slowly chip away at our dreams and ambitions and our energy.

If you use negative words you owe it to yourself to begin to change that pattern. Surely you deserve to live your life in a more positive way? It is time to become your best friend rather than an enemy and support yourself with positively.

What positive words can you use to describe yourself and those around you today?

“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.”
Patrick Rothfuss
