AFFIRMATIONS: The Power of Spoken Words
The power of spoken words
Affirmations and the power of spoken words.
Creation rides on the wave of spoken words. The world was framed by the Word of God. Just as we are made in the likeness of God, we have been given equal power with our words. You can create your world with your affirmations, with the power of your spoken words.
“Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble” – Yehuda Berg
Our words can create, and our words can pull down too. This is how powerful our words are.
I have seen and heard people jokingly utter words that they really do not mean to their friends, family or even to strangers. And when you ask them why they said what they said, they will say “I was just joking. I didn’t mean it“.
Just in case you haven’t understood the power of words, I will take you through it, and if you have, it will be great to relearn too.
Beyond the fact that words have the power to hurt someone, it does leave a bad impression on the user, if such words are bad.
What do you say to you?
What do you say to others?
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit” – Proverbs 18:21 MSB
Be conscious of the words that you speak to yourself first and then to others even when you are joking. Don’t use negative words on your friends just because you are having fun or unwinding. Be mindful of your words.
“Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily” – Tim Walker
There is so much going on in and around us. Sometimes our mind messes with us and at other times, it’s the toxic environment or bad energy of people surrounding us wanting to rub off on us.
All of these put together can let negative emotions almost overshadow us, hence the need for renewal of mind.
You are to counter those negative words you must have heard from a toxic boss at work, or from an angry person while you commute, with healthy words.
You silence negative thoughts with positive spoken words. In the same vein, you counter negative words with positive spoken words. Herein lies the power of affirmations.
Most of the time, our brains cannot differentiate between reality and imagination. What ever you give it, it process, real or imaginary. So when you create a mental picture of you acing an interview, delivering a powerful speech, or winning an award for a writing contest, you activate many of the same brain areas that actually experiencing these situations would and with your actions, the universe works towards making it happen. Interesting, right?
That’s how powerful our words are, so use them to your advantage. Don’t shortchange yourself.
For the different seasons of your life, you can have corresponding affirmations that would help you go through them. When you are trying to make your health work, what kind of words do you say out loud to yourself?
When your finances are not smiling what words to you say to you that keeps you going and tells you that you’ve got what it takes to bounce back?
If you’re trying to build quality relationships, what do you say to yourself and about your relationships?
What affirmations are you saying to yourself today?
I bet you now know that your spoken words are that powerful because you are what you say.
