Last week, Patricia Moreno a life coach conducted a Live Facebook session how Our Words Create our World.
It got me thinking because we often create our reality in our heads then it manifests in our lives.
The words you speak hold infinite power. This kind of power can either create new opportunities or shut them down. The words you speak can build relationships, or wreck them. They also hold power to lift you and other’s spirit, or pull them down.
Sometimes we are clueless and don’t realize just how impactful our words are – both for ourselves and others. If we did, we’d do far less whining and judging! You also would never hear yourself saying things like “It’s impossible to…”, “I’m totally hopeless at…” or “I had no choice…” – all phrases which undermine your own power and limit your future in some way, albeit unintentionally.
Psychologists have found that our subconscious mind interprets what it hears very literally. The words that come out of your mouth, therefore, create the reality you inhabit. For better or worse. Unfortunately, it’s often the latter as we unconsciously sabotage our success solely by using language that undermines our opinions, amplifies our problems and chips away at our confidence to handle them successfully.
The words that come out of your mouth create the reality you inhabit.
Whatever direction your words lead, your mind, body, and environment will reflect it. If you use positive language about yourself and your ability to learn new habits, skills, to achieve your goals and rise above difficulties, then that’s what tends to show up externally. Likewise, if you always say things that affirm incompetence, echo hopelessness, victimized, nurture anxiety or fuel pessimism, then that will also shape your reality. It may sound hookey now, but over time your world will morph to mirror your words.
It’s crucial to be intentional about the words you use and speaking in ways that empower and expand rather than devalue and deflate your self-worth.
We possess far more power to affect positive change in our world than we realize. Tapping into that power starts with building self-awareness of where you are using what psychologists call “out of power” language.
Sending loving and empowering vibes!💋
