Years ago, back in my early twenties, I discovered the power of words and how they shaped our lives. That discovery helped me to transform my life from the streets to becoming a legal entrepreneur and later a best-selling author (under my former name).
But somewhere along my journey, in the midst of the religion I was a part of for so many years, I lost my grasp of the power of words. Unconsciously, I began placing more emphasis on the abilities of a deity and a messiah, rather than my own; and things began to go downhill for me. Overtime, I became very frustrated with life, often times depressed; never understanding why my life was the way it was.
Since parting ways with religion in late 2018 and embarking on a more elevated spiritual growth journey, I regained my knowledge of the power of words, and my life began to climb back upward. And as of today, it’s night and day from where we were just 2 years ago. And this year is going to be our best year yet!!!
Looking back on it now though, I realize that the only real difference between where I am now and where I was then, is my use of words.
The Power of Words
It’s often said that, “our words have power”, but most people have no clue how true this saying really is. When we think of words, we usually only think about the ones that come out of our mouth. But the fact is that everything we think, do, create and experience is based on words, including the way we feel.
Think about it. When someone that you have unconditional love for, such as your children, tells you they love you, how does that make you feel? Happy or thankful, right? Yep! But what if that same person told you that they hated you? How would you feel then? Probably sad or angry, right? Exactly!
Well this proves that what we experience is based upon the power of words. And if how we feel can be shifted by the words of others, how much more so by our own words? This is an important question, because it’s our habitually feelings that determines our reality.
The Vibrations of Words
The reason why words have so much power has nothing to do with the words themselves, but our beliefs in their meanings. You see, words are simply meanings or definitions that we as a society agree upon. This is why in one society such as America, the word fat is received as an insult; but in another society like Ghana, the word fat is a taken as a compliment. Same word but with two different meanings, and as a result, two different outcomes.
From this example we can see that it’s our beliefs, which are developed through words, that create our reality. It works like this. The words we habitually consume — via what we think, speak, write, read, hear, or meditate on — make us feel a certain way and becomes our frequency. And since we are electromagnetic beings, our frequency signals out to universe to bring us more of our vibration. So whatever frequency we’ve been predominantly vibrating on, always manifest in our present reality.
Our vibrations shows up in the form of our moods, circumstances, relationships, finances, and all other experiences. It’s not a coincidence that the people you always see complaining, always have something to complain about and the people you always see being grateful, always have something to be grateful about. They each receive according to their vibration, which again is based on their words. And so do you.
Do You Believe in Your Words?
All of our present realities are mirrors of the vibrations of the predominant words we consume. Some of us are conscious of this and are able to utilize words to our advantage. But the majority of us are not aware of this and fall victim to our words. This is why an old man living in a Beverly Hills mansion can be depressed and contemplating suicide while a little boy living in the hood can be the happiest person in the world. It’s all about the words they choose to believe in.
This is what separates most of us from achieving our dreams. It’s not that we don’t won’t better. It’s that our words don’t match our beliefs. For instance, have you ever had someone tell you they’re sorry for doing something wrong to you, but in your heart you knew they were lying? We probably all have right! Well, the universe can pick up our vibrations as well, and it only responds to that which is true. So it’s not what we say verbally, which comes back to us; it’s what we believe internally that comes back to us.
For example, if you are speaking affirmations to yourself about starting a six-figure business, but your subconscious is filled with doubt, self-hate, lack and fear; then you are most likely not going to create a business that earns that type of income because your vibration is not a match for it. Instead, you will bring forth circumstances that mirror the doubt, self-hate, lack and fear within you. And this example applies to any situation. Whatever words we believe to be true in our heart always manifests in our lives.
Use Your Words To Change Your Life
I don’t know where you are in life right now, but I want you to know that you have the power to get wherever you desire to be. You are a magical being with a magical mind and if you can manifest almost anything you desire by the use and action of your words.
And this is not just some new age thought that white folks are teaching. Our ancient ancestors taught this and they were masters of words. Through their connection with nature, the universe, and the spiritual realm, they were able to perform what we would call miracles today. During slavery, they were the ones known by white folks as shamans, witch doctors, root workers, and spiritualists, because of their abilities to communicate with nature and ancestors to alter their realities. That’s why many of them were murdered and practicing indigenous cultures was forbidden.
But the power they had didn’t die with them. It still resides in us today. It’s just lying dormant in many of us, because we’re so indoctrinated with European ideologies to tap into to it. So I’m just here to remind you of who you are — the sons and daughters of the original hue-mans who ruled the planet for hundreds of thousands of years. And just like them, you can use your words to change your reality.
So this year, pay more attention to your words. Focus your inner and outer speech on what you desire to experience. Visualize your goals and plant them so deeply inside your subconscious, that you feel like they’re already accomplished. Then take action towards your goals, in gratitude of their fulfillment. And what you radiate inwardly, will eventually spring forth outwardly.
Enjoy your journey. Peace & Love!
