How many times have we set goals, visualized our desired outcome,
created and repeated positive affirmations, and yet still not achieved what
we had hoped? There are numerous potential causes for this. Sometimes its
simply a matter of WORDS.
Every sound we utter sends out an energy wave that aids in
creating our world. With every sentence we speak we are improving or destroying
our health, relationships, finances, etc.
The most powerful example I've ever heard was a story told
to me directly by the woman who had the experience. This woman had developed
an incurable disease of the eyes. She was quickly going blind. Her physicians
said there was NOTHING they could do. Being very determined and not liking
what she heard, she turned to alternative therapies for a possible cure
- something she never would have done had she not been in this desperate
situation. A friend recommended she see someone that did crystal healing.
She thought that sounded ridiculous but decided to give it a try. During
her appointment, the crystal healing therapist asked her to describe herself,
her life, etc. and she let her talk for about 10 minutes. Suddenly, the
therapist stopped her and said "Did you know that in the last 10 minutes
you said the words 'I hate to see' 15 times?" The woman was shocked.
She used the words "I hate to see" before many things. "I
hate to see the way the world is going." "I hate to see how they
are treating the children in schools." On and on she made reference
to "I hate to see" this or that. This was literally an eye opening
experience. She switched her words and now years later has perfect vision.
How Many Words Do We Use That Destroy Our
NEVER NEVER NEVER say "I'm Sorry." Two of the most
powerful words in the English language are the words I AM. These words tell
every part of you - your personality, your subconscious, your ego, your
spirit - who you are. They define WHO YOU ARE. Be very careful what you
place behind those words. When you say "I'm sorry," you are saying
that WHO YOU ARE is a sorry individual. Replace the words "I'm sorry"
with "I apologize." Anyone who eliminates the words "I'm
sorry" from their vocabulary will increase their self esteem almost
immediately! The same goes for "I'm
sick." "I'm tired." "I'm stupid." - you get the
idea. Replace those with "I feel ___" and eliminate the stupid
So What Does This Have To Do With Goal Achievement?
Another very important aspect of conscious language is the
LAW OF FOCUS. Whatever we place our attention on is what we create. It's
important to focus on the positive thing we desire rather than the negative
thing we want to avoid. For example, never focus on NOT AGING. Focusing
on not aging ensures that you will age and quickly. Instead focus on being
healthy, vibrant, and youthful.
An interesting and often overlooked part of all this is the
need to avoid words that are negating a negative. What the heck do I mean
by that? A word like LIMITLESS is actually drawing the subconscious mind
to focus on LIMITS. This is NOT what we want. So saying something like LIMITLESS
ABUNDANCE is placing limits on the abundance.
An example from my own life is the word EFFORTLESS. In the
past when I made affirmations, I would typically end them with the words
"easy, effortless, and fun." An example might be "Having
a wonderful relationship is easy, effortless, and fun." This was actually
drawing EFFORT into my life. Since I have eliminated that word and now only
use "easy and fun" EVERYTHING has shifted. We sold our house in
2 weeks because it was "easy and fun." - and there was no EFFORT
involved. Doug's immigration process to the U.S. was taken care of in less
than 2 months. There are many, many other examples of how this has made
things move very quickly and easily for us.
Review your own affirmations and the words you say out loud
or just to yourself and see how POSITIVE you are actually being. It does
make a difference!
