We all know that we create our reality through our thoughts, beliefs and emotions. That means what we focus we attract. Besides, thoughts, beliefs and emotions, words which we use also play a significant role in creating our reality.
Positive words can help us raise our vibrations where as when we indulge in conversations using negative words, leads to draining of our energies. When we are exposed to criticism and negative words, we pick up the energy of the negative words and feel our stomach clench and feel uncomfortable.
In my last article “Mind Your Mind Games, I had discussed the famous Dr. Emoto’s experiment on how water molecules transform their shapes when exposed to positive and negative written words placed on them. After Dr. Emoto’s experiments, several experiments have been carried out on the effects of positive and negative words. One of the widely carried out experiments were with plants. Different pots were planted with seeds and different words and phrases like love, hate, gratitude, jealousy, hatred, thank you, you are stupid etc. pasted on the pots. All the plants were given same amount of sunlight and water. After few days it was found that plants exposed to positive words were healthy and robust whereas the plants with negative words written on their pots were sick and had shrivelled up.
Just as the positive and negative words have impacts on water molecules and plants, you can imagine the impacts of these words on the physiology of human bodies and brain. A famous study carried out by Dr. Thomas Weiss, a professor of psychology at Germany’s Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena, carried out an experiment to show that merely reading negative words triggered pain centres in brain. Dr. Weiss used magnetic resonance tomography to scan the brain of the subjects while they read negative words related to pain like tormenting, gruelling, plaguing etc. It was seen that the pain centres in their brain were activated.
In their book, “Words can Change Your Brain”, authors Andrew Newberg , a neuroscientist and Mark Robert Waldmen have proved that a single word has the power to influence the expression of genes that regulate physical and emotional stress. Positive words have the power to strengthen areas in the frontal lobes and promote the cognitive functions of the brain. On the other hand, negative words increase the activity in the amygdala and release stress producing hormones and neurotransmitters.
It has been seen that words like love, appreciation, respect etc are high vibration words compared to words like jealousy, hatred, anger etc. Graphical representations of positive and negative words, have yielded larger and wider graphs, whereas the negative words recorded smaller and restricted graphs.
Why this happens? Because, words like everything else is a unique form of energy, vibration and frequency. When we expose ourselves to negative words, it attracts negativity and on the other hand when we expose to positive words, we attract positivity. As Albert Einstein had said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there to it. Match the frequency of reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
David Hawkin in his book, “Power vs. Force” had given a vibration scale to measure the energetic vibration of everything. The scale goes from 0 to 1000. Negative emotions like shame, hurt, guilt, jealousy etc. are at the lowest of the vibration scale while love vibrates at 500 and joy, peace and enlightenment at much higher levels.
The choice of our words and phrases we use while conversing tells the emotions or thoughts we hold. When we are using words of appreciation combined with gratitude, we are proclaiming an abundant mindset to the Universe. When we use sentences like, “Wow, it is so awesome that he is a successful person. He is an inspiration to all of us and he motivates us,”…such sentences reveal an expansive and generous mindset. In contrast, if we say, “How can he be so successful? It is not fair that he is so successful and I am not,” such phrases reveals the jealousy mindset and the lack mentality and the fear behind the expression.
Words are the powerful tools to heal any issue in your life. If you are facing any challenge in any aspect of your life, be it relationships, finances, work etc., you can change the situation by altering your vocabulary and start using positive statements. The words you chose can build your life or ruin it. And you have the power to choose the words you say write or hear. Positive words look beautiful and can uplift you and elevate your energies and inspire you. And once you are surrounded by the positive words and their uplifting energies, the negative words will have little impact on you.
I would like to explain this further by giving you an example. A student of mine, when she first came to my course had financial problems and was worried about her finances and was not happy in her job. When I spoke to her, I found out that she only used statements like, “I do not have money, “ “My finances are in a mess,” “My confidences levels are low.” All of her statements describing her, her finances, her work were all negative self talk. I advised her to indulge in positive self talk. So she changed her statements to “I am financially abundant,” I am doing a great job at my work,” “I am confident,” “My work is appreciated” She even started writing these sentences daily. Not even a month passed, she got an unexpected promotion at work and today she is much more confident person and her finances are stable. And most importantly, she does not worry about her future and is a much happier person.
Therefore, by altering our vocabulary and using positive affirming sentences can turn our lives into a miracle.
