The Power Of Words

April 20, 2021

Ever heard the phrase, “Be careful what you ask for?”

Words have meaning, when spoken out loud. How many of you have said things and noticed maybe not immediately but at some point, did I create this? No? Only me? Ok, hold that thought!

I remember growing up and hearing especially from adults always be careful what you ask for or make sure that what you are asking for is what you really want. I never really knew the significance of these phrases until later in life, I guess the universe knew I wasn’t ready for what was about to come. Who knew that a simple 5-letter word could be so powerful? Do you believe in creating what you want by speaking it into existence? I know you read and hear all the time from life coaches, bloggers, spiritual guidance counselors, mentors and such this phrase.

The truth is you bring into your life what you speak on, whether you write it down, say it out loud or just a simple thought. Have you ever noticed when you constantly talk about good vibes, good energy, feeling good, surrounding yourself with good people, having a great life that is what you attract? The universe or spiritual guide is always listening.

I remember when I first started practicing the art of listening to what I was saying, how I was saying it and when I was saying it. When my energy is not at a 100%, I don’t want to talk to anyone on any level. Why? Well, think about it, once you put it out there you can’t take it back, whether the words are good or bad. The same way you attract good things, you can also attract some things you don’t want.

I remember I was a part of this 5-day challenge conference which I really enjoyed. At the end of the conference they had a grand prize drawing for one lucky attendee which required a one-year commitment. Of course, I immediately went into defensive mode, saying I don’t want to win, and I hope they don’t call me because my plate is full. As I am sitting there waiting for them to call the winner, the whole time I am saying, “don’t call me, don’t call me” and yes you guessed it “Felicia Shanken, congratulations.”

My first words were a 4-letter word, not the one you are thinking of but the other one. I did what any grateful person would do, I thanked them and accepted my gift with a smile.

Remembering the concept of you create what you think about, I forgot that can go either way. Not only where my words powerful but they even attracted what I didn’t want. In the long run, I will probably find out during the 1-year commitment it was exactly what my business and I needed. Remember the Universe is always listening and watching, it knows exactly what we need and when we need it. I’ll keep you posted on the outcome.

As you can see “words” have power. Referring to a quote from the Bible, “In the beginning was the word,” whether you are spiritual, believe in a higher power or not, everything was created from the words of God.

Think about that for a moment. How powerful is that phrase? Just by speaking into existence, heaven and earth as we know it was created by 4 letters – the “WORD.”

When you are talking, planning or thinking out loud next time, be mindful of the words you are putting out into the universe. They do have meaning; they create and attract what and what you don’t want. Once they are put out there, they cannot be taken back.

When you are thinking and talking about your business, be kind to yourself. We all are humans, we are still learning and trying to get it right. Create the life you want personally and professionally. Make sure the “words” you are projecting are powerful, but most of all kind. Everyone is going through something especially after last year, leave a kind word or thought on your journey to those you encounter.

The universe is always watching and listening. Have a great day on purpose my friends!
