What words do you say?
Albert Einstein has been credited with the quotation,
"Everything is energy and that’s all there is. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics".
If everything is energy, then our words have an energy as well.
One of the ways we can match the frequency of the reality we want is to choose our words intentionally.
We have a habitual vocabulary that helps create our emotions and how we view a situation or condition. Words have a biochemical response in our bodies. When you say “I’m devastated” you’re going to produce a very different biochemical effect than if you say, “I’m feeling a bit disappointed.” Or “I can’t believe that happened to me” rather than just stating the facts.
Everything is created first in our thoughts and then we translate that into words. We can change what we are creating internally and then it how it shows up externally by being mindful of the words we choose.
We often say “I have to…” but in reality we “get to…”. “I get to go to the dentist.” I am grateful that I live where dentists are readily available and I can easily afford one. When I say “I get to”, it reminds me to feel gratitude rather than trepidation.
We often say “I can’t afford…”. This can set a tone for feeling lack. We can say “I choose not to spend my money on…”, which feels more empowered.
Here are a few easy word changes to shift your energy...
Change "I must..." (which implies we don’t have a choice) to "I want...".
Change "I should..." to "I choose...".
Change "I have to..." to "I get to...".
How we choose to think about something will affect our attitude and our energy level, which will affect the action steps we will or will not take and how we take them. Which in turn will affect our outcome or the level of success we will experience in all areas of our lives.
This week, I’d like to invite you to start to notice the words you are choosing to speak and ask if they feel empowering or disempowering? Choose words that will enable you to become an intentional match for what you want to create and how you want to feel.
