Are you aware of how the words coming out of your mouth are affecting you? Do you realise that every word you speak is a manifesting generator of the reality you end up experiencing? Words matter for several reasons. They can quite literally change the way your mind perceives something.
Linguists and neuroscientists have proven what we always knew to be true; the words you speak shape the world you see.
Words aren’t just mere labels for objects or ideas. In fact, language can limit you by focusing your perception, attention, and thoughts on a more narrow band of reality.
I notice that when I speak or think in Polish, I almost take on a slightly different personality. I become aware of myself engaging with thoughts and others in a way that is altered from when speaking in English.
When I have spoken in Spanish, Thai, or Lao for an extended period of time, I noticed that it is almost as if the words carried with them the energy of all those who spoke them before me, imprinting a specific way of engaging h. Even mannerisms would change.
How We Understand Reality
As humans, we perceive and interpret everything through our basic senses (there are 5-20 of them based on what you include).
Through these senses, or sensors, we create a subjective understanding of what reality is, as well as how we perceive it is constructed.
Language has tremendous power. It’s a remarkable tool that can be used for good or ill.
Billions of people are controlled through fear by those who are seen as being authorities over others in some capacity.
Words have inspired others such as sages, to pursue virtuous and noble lives.
Aspects of reality that seem fundamental, such as time, can be perceived differently. For example, the Hopi do not have words to describe the past tense of verbs. This leads to their attention being focused on the present.
But besides the perception of time being altered, your sense of self can change as well. This is most apparent if you can speak and think in two different languages. When studies using Asian immigrants in North America in the 90s and 00s were done, it was found that when they described themselves using the English language in Canada, they were usually describing themselves using positive statements to match the Canadian consciousness.
However, when they did the same in Chinese, they described themselves in equal amounts of positive and negative statements. These differences align with the collective group consciousness of these two very different cultures. This shows how the language we use can shape how we perceive and think about ourselves.
Be Mindful of Your Words
Using words like he, mankind, god, and others can distort reality due to how these words have been used for hundreds of years. These three examples in particular have been used in the past to describe all-encompassing aspects of reality (he referring to any human, man, woman or otherwise, mankind referring to every human regardless of gender and insinuating male supremacy, and god generally referring to a male anthropomorphic deity).
Words such as these limit thoughts and perception to a narrow range of options. Other universal words that could be more accurately used include they, humanity, and source … for example.
Expanded forms of language releases our minds from linguistic limitations we have not even realised we were living under.
Understanding the True Meaning of Words
It is also important to understand what the true meaning of every word we verbalise is. This means what the root and original intention of a word is.
You should also expand this understanding out to words related to those words. Say the words and feel into them. Which one will move you forward in your life?
Let’s take a look at some examples of words that are either regressive for us, or cause us to be stuck and stagnant, as well as words that can promote growth and progression.
I can’t – Will stop growth
I won’t – Will create a blockage in your way of success
It’s hard – Will stop you from achieving anything in life
I don’t believe – Holds you back from being a seeker of truth and stops you from learning
I don’t like it – Stops you from gaining knowledge
Try – If you try something, you will do it over and over, yet never get to the end. Trying puts a block in your way.
I can try – A taught condition that holds you back from succeeding
I’m trying – Bears little to no worthwhile results
I will try – Pursuing something but never attaining it. I will attempt – never-ending and repetitious
I can – Promotes growth and is a command to your Self
I am – Identifies you with a declarative statement about yourself
I believe – Allows your wishes and needs to manifest
It is done – A behaviour of using helpful words
I can do it – Moves you forward in life
I can do anything – Propels you into a state of limitless conscious creation
When you become more aware of what words you use and how they make you feel, you will be able to speak in a more deliberate way that will create only helpful manifestations for you.
Keep in mind just how powerful language is as a liberator or limiter for our consciousness to express itself and engage with 3D reality.
Empower yourself to go beyond the artificial limitations, if they are there.
Allow your consciousness to reflect itself with as much clarity, authenticity, and purity as possible.
