Your words have power...
A quote that came to me when I started to think about the power of the word, clearly being married to a sci-fi geek for the past 20 years is finally rubbing off on me.
Words are so extremely powerful and with that does come a lot of responsibility, as the words you use determine your reality.
Whether it is the words you use when you are talking to yourself, the words you use to describe yourself or the words you use when you are communicating with others.
The words you use when talking to yourself are the most powerful, as you are the person that one you spend the most time with and two listen to the most.
The words you use to describe yourself also have such a big impact on you, if you think about the way in which you describe yourself you can either empower or dis-empower yourself.
This is where you can start to see the affect that your words have on your energy, when you are feeling empowered and confident your energy levels are high.
But when you are feeling dis-empowered due to the words you are using, your energy is going to be low.
I always remember been told as a young mum of two girls that I am their biggest influence as the same sex parent, the way in which I describe myself to them can have a huge affect on how they then see themselves.
For example, say I say something like “I look fat today”, they can then internalise that and think if mum thinks she is fat, maybe I am too.
This really leads into the power of the word when you are also communicating with others, you have an affect on those around you, even if you are not aware of it.
I know for me my kids don’t seem to be listening for the most part, teenage girls for you.
But there will be times where I hear my words coming out of their mouth, so clearly they are listening.
I feel this is very well demonstrated in our current issues in schools around bullying, for the most part for our kids, it is the words that are being said as opposed to physical bullying.
All you have to do is look at the rate of teen/kid suicide from being bullied at school and online, again the words have power.
The old saying goes:
“Sticks and Stones may break my Bones but Words will never Hurt me”
Boy is that all kinds of wrong, the emotional trauma that comes from the words used against you, words used to describe you and words used to hurt you is so damaging.
Emotional wounds take so long to heal and unfortunately are not given enough attention in today’s world, if you are emotional you are seen as weak, if you are sensitive, you are seen as weak.
We need to start to give our words more attention, to really understand that words have power, their influence and their affect not just on us but on those that we interact with.
A great way to start to connect in more with your words is to allow them to move through the following pathways:
Making this a habit is going to help you so much to spend more time feeling empowered and influential, using your words for good.
Knowing you have the power to decide how it is you want to feel and how it is you want to make others feel when they are in your presence.
Because not only will the use of your words make a difference, your energy level will be different and those around you will feel it.
How you can work with me privately:
“I am a Holistic Counsellor and Accredited & Certified Clinical EFT Practitioner based in Pimpama, Gold Coast, Australia.
My approach is to bridge traditional and alternative therapies, my experience has shown me that being a bridge between the two worlds and combining talk therapy with EFT Tapping is very effective.
You don’t have to wait till all the wheels fall off to ask for help, I have noticed with some of my clients that this is where they have to get to before they will reach out.
My role is to provide a safe space for you to express how you are feeling, knowing I will hear you; I will understand you and I will validate how you are feeling.
I help you to find what is causing you to feel the way you do and using EFT to help heal the underlying cause.”
