The words we use make a huge difference in shaping our life and our reality. We must carefully choose what we say to ourselves and to others, both verbally and non-verbally.
In The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, the first agreement is Be impeccable with your word. “Being impeccable with your word is the correct use of energy; it means to use your energy in the direction of truth and love for yourself.” He goes on to say that being impeccable with your word can act as protection against being affected by negative things others say to you, as the ‘garden’ of your mind will only be fertile for what you ready it for.
Words carry a vibration just like everything else in our world. Changing your thoughts can change your life. Your thoughts create the way you see the world and your perspective will have an effect on how you think, feel, and behave in response to the world around you.
Dr. Masaru Emoto was a Japanese researcher who explored the effects of words on water molecules. His book, The Miracle of Water, highlights the work he did in exposing water samples to different words prior to freezing them. Some of the words were kind in intention, for example ‘love’, ‘gratitude’, ‘hope’, and some of the words or phrases were unkind, for example ‘hopeless’, ‘hate’, ‘you’re no good’. When examined under a microscope, we are able to see that when the water was frozen, the molecules created either beautiful or ‘unsightly’ crystals depending on the words that were spoken to it. “The energy of the words is reflected in the formation of crystals.” (Emoto 2007)
Here are a few examples of the water crystal formations:
There is a great deal of proof showing that negative people typically suffer from more illness and pain than more optimistic and positive thinking people. There are also reports of people becoming healthier and even healing from severe illness through the use of laughter, positive attitude, and affirmations.
Emoto goes on to say that “since our bodies consist of 70% water, we can infer from the crystals that the water within us also contains the energy of [our] words.”
If saying words with positive energy to drinking water prior to freezing it can create these beautiful patterns and shapes, imagine what our negative thoughts are doing to the water in our own bodies!
We must start with ourselves, so begin to notice what you are “saying” to yourself- about your life, your body, your relationships, your worth. The vibration of our intentions, thoughts, and speech is shaping our lives. We can see the proof of how changing our words can literally change the state of our bodies. Your water is listening. What are you going to say to it today?
Every day is different and some days it will be easier to say nice words than others. Just keep practicing and you know that I will be practicing right along with you.
