Can you remember words that were spoken to you at an early age that literally created your life? These are powerful words that, while they may seem hidden, are really there to be discovered if you pay attention.
Words are vibrational patterns with energy just like everything else in the known universe. We know that light and sound are energetic frequencies, and that matter can also be broken down into vibrational patterns based on molecular structure. This is also true for thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and words.
One single word can alter a person’s trajectory for the rest of their life. Every word has tremendous creative and destructive power, especially words we hear from authority figures. Words, especially when tied with strong emotions, can become deeply embedded within us very quickly.
When I was in the first grade, I had to take an admission test to see if I could get into a prestigious school. When I failed the test, my father said to me, “You are a shameful and useless being.” These words stuck with me for the next 30 years and perpetuated the creation of negative emotional patterns that would fight to keep out anything positive about the state of my intelligence.
I created the belief “I am stupid” because of the power of these words from my father.
What Is Your “I Am”?
When we are born, we have virtually no identity. Our identity of who we are is formed at a very young age. Words will craft your “I am” statements via the language used around you and about you as a person, which will inform the type of person you become later on in life.
As our identity becomes deeply embedded in the psyche, our entire life revolves around “I am” statements and stories about ourselves. Your mind is full of the energetic imprints of the words that you have said and heard your whole life.
You become the words that you say and hear. Words reflect your thoughts, your behaviours, and your identity. But your identity is not set in stone because you have free will, and there are literally no restrictions to become what you want to become.
The world around you is a reflection of the words and images that you store in your mind. You begin to perceive the world as positive when you become encouraging and positive yourself. Not the other way around.
So often, we think that we need something external to change us. We need another healthy diet, a new self-help book or yoga class, a better partner, a different job; the list goes on and on.
If you want to change your world, change your internal words.
Once you begin replacing the negative words and the stories created by them in your life with positive words and stories, your whole life will change. This is not always easy to do, but it is certainly possible. You can do this on purpose and with intention, or not. The choice is yours.
Do you want to start speaking from your heart rather than your mind?
Do you want your thoughts, beliefs, and actions to be in alignment?
Do you want to live a life full of purpose and meaning?
When there are a lot of complex, deeply embedded negative patterns in one’s psyche, the best thing to do to heal and release them is to acknowledge their existence and bring them to light. Not because they are inherently bad and something to fix or get rid of, but because in the presence of your light within, their energy will transform and provide healing in associated areas of your mind, body, and spirit.
EVERYTHING in your life is the way it is because of the current state of your energetic vibration. Permanent true healing is about raising the vibration of the consciousness. Quick fixes cannot be sustained over a long period of time.
Bring the negativity to light with acknowledgement, which is awareness without judgement or condemnation.
You begin to say to yourself, “I feel really angry and frustrated about (an issue). I acknowledge this presence inside me; it is there. I feel this way and I do not judge it.”
We do this instead of suppressing the feeling, which makes it stick around longer, or feeling horrible about having the emotions, which just adds suffering on top of suffering. You start to become observant, asking why you are thinking, feeling, or behaving the way you do.
Acknowledging the emotions and asking ‘why’ can be painful at times. There is a constant tug of war between the old and new words, between the old and new patterns of being. However, bringing to the surface our patterns of thinking and behaving can help us to see our choices more clearly, taking the power of words into our own hands and growing our consciousness.
I hope that this helps you in your journey towards enlightenment.
Discover how you can live fearlessly without the need for validation or approval from others, so you can experience life without any barriers between you and the joy of your full, undiminished consciousness.
