I have noticed lately that people are not very aware of the words they are using, of the dis-empowering stance they take in their language, or the reality that words are spells; words have power.
If you begin to watch what you say, you may learn a bit about your own perspective of life, others, and yourself. Many times we focus on exactly what we don't like about life, and then we talk about it, and re-string ourselves into a web of it. This is a practice in self-victimization.
Over the next couple of weeks, watch your words.
Talking about how sad you are, and how you never do anything right?
Constantly retelling the story of why you are the way you are, as an excuse of why you can't do the things you want to do?
Telling stories in which you are doomed, or are the source of discouragement?
Now, when you find yourself talking badly, try to stop yourself. Notice your mood, and energy. Are you feeling drained, or does complaining give you an outlet for excess energy? Now, take a deep breath and begin to weave the story of your life as you'd always wished it was told.
Our words bond us to our reality. Our word is our bond.
We are the Weavers, we are the Web
We are the Flow, we are the Ebb...
Be aware of the web you are spinning, because, like a spider, it is sure that you will be living right in the middle of it.
