Words are things. When I say “Words are things” … what do I mean? I mean:
(1.) You can gather a flock of words together and throw them into the world.
(2.) You can say something and make it
(3.) You can be a prophet if you want to.
You can embrace someone with a string of comfortable words that make them feel good: “I really like you.” “You are very talented.” “That’s a wonderful thing you did.”
When you use language this way, you gather words, put them in a sentence, and toss them out there in the world … and they make someone feel good. NICE!
You can also throw words at someone just like you throw a hand grenade. You can destroy their attitude with a string of words. You can harm their psychic state with your language. Can’t you! Horrible?! Folks are vulnerable.
Words are things; they are forces of energy. A string of words can cause healing or cause infections. You can offer them as a gift, or offer them as a poison. When you gather words together, string them in a sentence and toss them out there in the world, they have an affect. Do you take your language that seriously?
Language is the invisible part of life ; it is not concrete; you cannot measure or weigh it … but it has a great impact on the visible part. President John F. Kennedy said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade …” When he said it, thousands got a mental picture of what it meant … and within a decade man was walking on the moon. How are you languaging your future?
What are your plans for the next decade? What is the language you use when speaking to yourself? Do you speak to yourself about the next decade? Do you take your personal self-talk seriously?
Your life unfolds from the language you use with yourself. Words are the things from which miracles unfold. If words were not things, there would be no faith healing, there would be no marvelous breakthroughs in science, there would be no uplifting changes in society.
If language was not available, your life would be mechanical and robot-like. You would not be able to design your personal destiny.
When you believe you are marvelously made and destined to win at whatever affirmation you listen to, and you language it in a way that motivates you – powerful universal forces work with you. Language is a magnetic force. It attracts the interactive forces of creation to comply with your wishes.
Your self-talk blesses you when the language you use attracts good things unto you. Your self-talk curses you when the language you use attracts bad things unto you.
(A.) Language consists of a collection of words.
(B.) A collection of words is an accumulation of thought-energy.
(C.) An accumulation of thought-energy is a powerful force that can cause White Magic or Black Magic.
You really are here to live an extraordinary life of enriching experiences. Allow your language to cause White Magic.
Your language contains a great force. It represents your thoughts. You are a powerful thinker because you can language your thoughts. Your language creates your world. There is no such thing as coincidence.
Please share what stirs in you after reading this post. What truth sits clearly before you about language and your world? Your input offers clarity to what is being spoken.
Thank you & blessings
