I was reminded again today of the power our words hold. I've spoken before about the wounding they cause but our words manifest our realities too.
How conscious are you of the words that come out of your mouth? How conscious are you of the negativity or the positivity that you're voicing?
If you look around you and see a world that is hostile, dangerous and unhappy, then maybe it's time to take a step back and look at the words you have been speaking. Then look at what you post on Facebook and what you watch on TV. Do you focus on bad news? Do you give more power to the unhappiness in life by investing your energy in it?
We might not be able to change the actions of others but we can make damn sure that we don't add to their energy.
If we were all to become mindful of speaking only what we would like to manifest then we'd change the world around us. I challenge you to try it for a week. I challenge you to write down what you would like to see in the world around you for a week. I challenge you to change your world and then to tell me it doesn't work.
