Power of Words

Words are powerful; they have the ability to create a moment and the strength to destroy that moment.

The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

Words consist of vibration and sound. It is these vibrations that create the very reality that surrounds us. Words are the creator, the creator of our universe, our lives, and our reality. Without words, a thought can never become reality.

The vibration of words will send sound waves to the ear and to the brain. The root is the Latin word vibratus, which means, "move quickly to and fro or shake."

Words have incredible power in our lives. For one, they provide us with a vehicle for expressing and sharing our experiences with others. Most of us don't realize, however, that the words you habitually choose also affect what you experience.

Transformational vocabulary is about how you can take control of your habitual vocabulary to change the quality of your life. Simply by changing your habitual vocabulary, the words you consistently use to describe the emotions of your life, you can instantly change how you think, feel, and live. When your desires and thoughts become words, change happens, and they become a reality.

What's interesting is how two people can experience the exact same sensations differently in their bodies by the labels they put on the experience. For example, one person may feel "frustrated" while the other just feels "a little confused." It amounts to a massive difference in the way we feel, and when we change the way we feel, we change the way we behave.

The word BUT negates or cancels everything that goes before it. And is generally accepted as a signal that the essential part of the sentence is coming up. When you use it most people listening to you will give more attention and more weight to what you say after you say BUT. In the book the Power is Within You written by Louise Hay, she states;

"A lot of us use the word BUT. We make statements then we use the word BUT, which heads us in two different directions. We give conflicting messages to ourselves. Listen to how you use the word BUT the next time you speak."

We have all heard this quote; “the tongue has no bones and yet it is strong enough to break a heart.” So be careful with your words.

Some reminders about words:

• Our words and thoughts are the tools with which we create our reality.

• Picking the very best words will create the very best reality.

• Words can inspire. Words can destroy.

• Choose your words well.

• Don't mix your words with your mood. You can change your mood, you can't take back your words.

You can change the course of your life with your words. Louise Hay said in her workbook Love Yourself, Heal Your Life: "If you want to change your life, you need to control your mouth."

Your words have power, use them wisely. One kind word can change someone's entire day.

I am. Two of the most powerful words. For what you put after them shapes our reality.
— Joel Osteen
