The groundbreaking work of Masaru Emoto suggests that a word’s vibration has the ability to change how matter behaves. When words such as love, thank you, spirit, and truth were written on a vial of water, the crystals formed when the water was frozen were beautiful and many times symmetrical. Words and phrases such as you disgust me, evil and you fool were distinctively different producing what he called “disfigured crystals.”
Maya Angelou thinks that words “…are things….They get on the walls. They get in your wallpaper. They get in your rugs, in your upholstery and your clothes, and finally into you.” Furthermore, she advises that “you must be careful about the words you use.”
Whether we are aware of it or not, the words we speak and think have a powerful impact on the quality and unfolding of our lives. Let’s take for example, choose vs. need.
I need to make more money vs. I choose to make more money.
I need to get healthier vs. I choose to get healthier.
I need to make a change vs. I choose to make a change.
Think of an aspect in your life that you would like to be different, and say the statement to yourself using both I need and I choose. Pay attention to your body. Do you sense a difference in the energy and feeling as you express each statement? Most likely you will.
When we say we need, we are relating to ourselves from a position of diminished strength. Something is lacking, something is wrong with us or our surroundings, something bad may happen if we don’t change. The energy we generate with these thoughts will affect our body as well as the ways in which we move through the world.
When we decide to choose, it is a statement of empowerment. We align with the energy of intention and creation. I choose says, what I want is possible and I have to power to do what is necessary to make it happen.
It is necessary to recognize our needs and express them to those whom we are in relationship. This is an important step. However, when we relate constantly to life from the perspective of need, we become a victim of lack.
When we desire and are ready to create change, it is worthwhile to harness the power of the word to speak to and support the manifestation we seek. Your words can call forth the limitless creator in you or they can close the door to your heart’s desire. Which do you choose?image courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net/nuttakit
