Harness the Power of Words
“This heat is killing me.”
It’s June 2nd, and summer weather is in full swing here in Florida. I love summer in Florida, but it is hot. My friends, stuck here because of jobs and spouses, wish they could be snowbirds and complain from May to October.
I don’t mind it when my friends complain about the weather, or anything else. But I mind very much when those complaints use exaggerations that invoke death, dismemberment and suffering.
Saying that the heat is killing you won’t actually make you die. The power of words is not such that if you simply speak, an action will occur. Since that doesn’t happen, we learn not to be careful about the energy we invoke.
Affirming over and over that something you can’t control is actually killing you does hurt you, each and every time you do it. It hurts you in two ways.
First, it gives something you can’t control more power over you than it really has.
Second, it surrounds you with negativity.
I get tired of people who avoid negative energy at all costs. Basically, if you live on the planet you will deal with some negative stuff.
But why create more negativity then you need to?
The heat is not killing you.
You won’t die if you don’t get the exact thing you want.
You won’t kill someone you love if they disappoint you.
A part of your body that aches is also not killing you.
We can harness the power of words for healing and empowerment. Why use it to do the opposite?
