Understanding the power of your words

Your words can either make or break you. They can motivate you or discourage. They have the power to stimulate, encourage and even praise you but at the same time they can destroy, belittle and even shame you into action or contention for with contention there is no need to take action.

Are you conscious of the words that you speak? Do you allow your words to properly guide and enlighten your life and the lives of those you encounter or do you deliberately use your words to sting and insult?

When we consciously choose our words to inspire, encourage and support, we have the power to change our world and the world of those around us.

Think about it for a moment your words can create a spell on the person that the words are directed towards. It is worth saying that part of expressing ourselves in a clear way is our ability to choose to use the words that most clearly express the truth of how we are feeling and the message we wish to convey.

Let me take this thought a little further. Do you know what happens when you string words together to express a thought? You create a sentence. The words that we string together in a sentence are so powerful that they actually "sentence" you or the person that you have directed your words towards in a positive or negative fashion. Therefore, If what you are saying is "not" what you want to live out, it would be worth your time to restate your feelings and sentence yourself to a life of joy.

Too often, I have spoken to people who actually sentence themselves to pain, despair or some other negative emotions because of the way they perceive their lives and that is a shame. I invite you to become more conscious of the way you choose to use your words and begin to express yourself in a manner that is rewarding and beneficial to your overall wellbeing.

In life clarity is the magnet that attracts the results. It sound so simple and easy to do yet most of us fail to understand that the real power of our words is unveiled for the most part without our conscious consent.

Therefore my message to you this day is to always:

1. Be conscious of how you use your words.

2. Get resourceful and listen to God's guidance through the power of yourintuition

3. Take inspired action towards yourself and others

4. Allow your words to nurture and enrich your life and the lives of others

When we take right action from resourcefulness, which is from your heart space, you actually vibrate with clarity and purpose. That is when you know that you are in perfect alignment with Creator.

We do not need to add to our pain or any one else's pain by using words that injure. Well chosen words can offer hope, create vision, impact thinking and alter results. Learn to harness your word power to work for you not against you. Our ability to communicate is vital to our success and I ask you to never forget your words have the power to transform the world.
