We often hear people speak about the power of words. Our words have a creative force within them. We see that those who always say “I am lucky”, truly are lucky. And those constantly say “I can’t because…” often are stuck and can’t create the change they want.
Words carry a frequency, and attracts to it like things of that frequency. This is the law of attraction. Thousands of words spill from our minds and mouths each day, and each one carries a frequency. It can be quite overwhelming to weigh each word at all times. This is why meditation helps to quite the mind and the frequencies it is emitting so that you can return to your true vibration.
One of the most profound experiments and visual representations of the power and frequency of our words can be read about in Masaru Emoto’s book “The Hidden Messages In Water”. In this book, he describes experiments done by exposing water to certain words as it froze. The ice crystals that formed helped us see the power of these words. In some instances the water was spoken to, and in other instances the word was written on a piece of paper and placed around the clear glass holding the water. Words such as stupid, ugly, and hate created deformed crystals, if any at all. While words such as love, beautiful, peace, and gratitude created magnificent, intricate, and perfectly formed crystals. Whether the word is thought, written, or spoken, it has a frequency.
We seldom take the time to truly examine what our words mean beyond the Webster Dictionary’s definition, and the frequency it is generating. Consider the word “Retired”. The dictionary defines this word as “having left one's job and ceased to work”. But let’s break this word down another way. Re – tired. Re, meaning to do again or repeat. Tired, meaning in need of sleep or rest, weary, bored, no longer fresh or in new condition. So quite literally, retired means “I will be tired and weary over and over again”. Is it any wonder that when people retire, their health seems to fail them and they rapidly decline and age? Perhaps, we need to change our words to “I left my former job. Now I paint, tend the garden, chase my bliss, etc.”
As you can see, our language creates many limitations for us. New words are needed as we expand our consciousness and awareness of our true nature.
I was struck with a similar epiphany recently about the word “understand”. I was having a conversation recently with Al about God, God Consciousness, and Sovereignty. In particular, I have been trying to wrap my head around the ideal of being a Sovereign soul, and how being in alignment with our I Am at Source is also in alignment with Divine will. We approached the subject from many different angles, and referenced different teachings we have picked up along the way as we tried to understand this. And then that word “Understand” lit up for me. If we break it down, “under – stand” means to stand under something or a part from something. You can not stand within your Sovereignty by trying to understand it. You cannot stand within your truth by trying to understand it. You cannot stand within your God Consciousness by trying to understand it.
We tend to step back and view these concepts from the outside looking it. We believe that if we step back far enough, we can see the full picture and comprehend how it all inter-relates. And so we read endless books on the subject, believing that knowledge is understanding; and perhaps it is just that. In my book reading and knowledge seeking, I am standing under and apart from the truth. But if we want to truly experience our God Consciousness and Sovereignty, we must stand within our power. We must BE that which we seek. We must say I AM! This can be very scary. It can feel so safe to be so small. But to say “I AM” makes you a titan in that which you are claiming. I can feel within myself the fear of those words that keeps me from claiming them and keeps me small. It is the threshold of awareness, greatness, and spiritual evolution. Will you choose to cross that threshold?
Put another way; you can watch football religiously, study all the plays, and know the strengths of each player. You can understand this sport and know the job each team mate on the field is expected to preform. But you cannot know what it truly is like until you step out on that field.
So I will practice standing in my I AM, standing in my Sovereignty.
I had to look up the word “practice” to make sure it resonated correctly here. Practice is defined as:
1. “the actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method as opposed to theories about such application or use”, or
2. “repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it”.
So yes, the word practice is quite appropriate here.
I would share this experience with you, but you cannot under-stand it. You must stand within it if you want to experience it for yourself.
With so much love in my heart for each of you…. I AM LOVE.
