Your Words Can be Used to Hypnotize Yourself and Others, Choose Wisely
Your words are powerful so choose them wisely. They can be very magical creating heaven on earth or they can be destructive through gossip and opinions, creating hell on earth.
“The First Agreement: Be Impeccable with Your Word……. The word is not just a sound or a written symbol. The word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby to create the events in your life.” Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
Your words are like a double-edged swords which can be used to create the most beautiful experience or to destroy an entire group of people and everything around you.
When we are young, we are exposed to the opinions and beliefs of our parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, etc. our minds are very fertile and have not yet matured to the point where we create our own filter. We are easily hypnotized into accepting the beliefs of the people in our environment.
For example, if someone tells you all blondes are stupid and you accept this statement as true, you create a belief you will now live by, you will either think of yourself as stupid if you’re blonde, or you may treat blonde people as if they are stupid. This belief can follow you around your entire life and affect your job, your relationships and even your ability to interact positively with others.
Always take care to think through prior to speaking, to do your best always to be kind and careful not to judge others or situations. If someone is speaking badly about someone else, gossiping, decide not to accept their story as true. Listen without judgement and do your best to refrain from engaging in this kind of negative conversation.
If at all possible, walk away.
Your Own Words Are Creating Your Experience
What you tell yourself has the most power overall. Your thoughts have the ability to shape your experience because All Emotion Follows Thought! Let that sink in.
Your thoughts are words you tell yourself.
Your thoughts are just as powerful as your words. Your thoughts and words also determine how you feel inside, and you will attract to you the very things you’re thinking about. Your thoughts are like a magic spell you cast on yourself.
The powerful subconscious mind does not know the difference between what is “real” and what is a thought in your mind. Furthermore, your thoughts integrate with your imagination.
Your imagination is so powerful, it is the beginning of creation. Think about this, EVERYTHING on this planet exists by imagination. Everything we have created, everything we enjoy began as an idea in someone’s imagination.
Whatever you think or imagine is like an instruction to your subconscious mind, directing how you feel and what you experience in your world. Your subconscious mind is like a magic lamp with your magic genie inside. Your wish (thought) is my command.
Your subconscious mind uses your thoughts like an instruction, then looks through all your memories, experiences and beliefs to give you exactly what you’re thinking about.
How would you like to get your subconscious mind to work with you? Don’t take anything at face value, take a moment to step back and discern if something is true for you.
If you’re not feeling as good as you would like, or your day is filled with challenges and feelings of defeat and sadness, stop and observe what you’ve been thinking about, what has been your focus.
The secret is in moving into the space of the “observer” instead of the “thinker.”
Try this: take 6-10 deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. Next, close your eyes and follow your breath in and out. Imagine you can see your nostrils in your mind, feel your beautiful breath as it naturally flows in and out.
Observe any thoughts that are drifting through your mind behind the scenes. Are your thoughts positive and uplifting? Or are they negative and sad? Try not to judge yourself, just observe.
You have moved yourself into a position of power where you can adjust your focus on something you love and enjoy. Imagine yourself in your favorite place, enjoying love and hugs, laughter and good times with someone you love.
Reflect on those times when you succeeded or accomplished something you set out to do. Recall those amazing memories in full detail, pulling up your emotions of confidence and achievement.
Enjoy those wonderful feelings. Now you are in charge, not the thoughts. You are consciously creating what you desire, instead of what you don’t and feeling like a victim.
This takes practice to master and is a lifelong pursuit. But the implement being consciously aware and changing your thoughts and focus towards what you want, it will become easier.
You are a courageous soul, but I promise the journey will be worth it!
