The Word of the Week
Language and Affirmations
I have mentioned before in my weekly missives the importance of language and the way we use it in our everyday lives. I cannot emphasise enough that this shift applied on a consistent basis, will improve the way you think about yourself and your interaction with others so that you live consistently upon a higher level of consciousness.
Words as well as sounds emit a vibration which has been scientifically proven to affect matter. To simplify in this context, the words you say to yourself as well as to others, more importantly the way you say it, affects you and others on a physical level. When you are living as a five sensory being (i.e. your life experience is limited to only what you can see, touch, smell, taste and hear), words can either uplift or hurt you by the emotion with which those words are said. If you label and tell yourself that you are stupid, you will become that which you think and say; moreover you will attract people and situations into your life that will reinforce this negative belief.
This is why affirmations are extremely important when you are desirous to change a particular aspect about yourself that no longer serves you. However, there is one crucial proviso that renders an affirmation useless and that is the intention coupled with the emotion with which it is said. You can tell yourself all day long that you are beautiful, but if YOU do not have the intention to eventually believe that you are beautiful, when you repeat this affirmation you will forever be saying the words but the vibration that it holds will diminish because the energy does not match the vibration. Even if you don’t believe an affirmation to be true for yourself at that particular moment you can still activate its power by having the intention that you WILL believe this to be true to you the more you say it. The affirmation “I am beautiful inside and out” can be initially said in a timid way, almost as a whisper when you do not quite believe it about yourself, but as you continue to affirm these words with the underlying intention that each time you do say it, your belief grows stronger, you will eventually have all the components to make them have a real physical change in your life.
Affirmation coupled with emotive Intention enforces the Belief and leads to change.
Have a wonderful weekend!
