Through the 1990′s, dr. Masaru Emoto performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of words and prayers on the structure of water.
Dr. Emoto took water droplets, exposed them to various words, prayers and music and froze them for three hours. Then he examined the crystal formations under a microscope. And he took photographs. The results were totally mind-blowing.
The water stamped with positive words was far more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing than that stamped with dark, negative words.
You probably already knew that negative or positive thinking have a major impact on you and your surroundings.
That concept is relatively easy to grasp. Dr. Emoto’s experiments makes this visible and tangible.
If the words and thoughts that come out of us have this effect on water crystals, it’s amazing to think of what kind of effect they have on the people and events that come into our lives. Oh and by the way, the average human body is 75% water. Think about that for a while…
Dr. Emoto also experimented with cooked rice. He placed one cup of cooked rice in two airtight jars. On one jar, he wrote, ‘I love you’, and on the other, ‘You fool’. Everyday for 30 days, Dr. Emoto would say these words to each jar of rice. After 30 days, the ‘I love you’-rice was still white, but the ‘You fool’-rice was so rotten, it was black.
Although Emoto’s work is widely considered pseudoscience by professionals, it makes you think, doesn’t it?
So this week: the seven why’s for using only positive words!
Words are thoughts made into action
If your eyes are the window to your soul, then the words you choose are the road map to where you are going. Positive words lead the way! By choosing positive words to express yourself, you uplift your mood and the mood of those around you, you attract positives and you empower your life direction. Your words do make a difference, both to your own reality and the reality of others.
Positive words change your life
When you have made the conscious decision to improve your life, you need a starting point. Something which, no matter how minor, is going to change your direction. That change is your words. Your words are a positive feedback loop! Your conscious effort to change your words to positive words is going to be reinforced by constantly hearing the positive words you use.
You will see that if you start using optimistic and happy positive words, you are going to find yourself becoming happier and more joyful.
Your words are a double edged sword
Not only are we expressing messages to someone else, we also receive the messages ourselves!
When you give out negatives to others, you give negatives to yourself! Give negatives, get negatives. Give positives, get positives! Is listening to a recording to everything you said today an uplifting experience? Well, you are your own audience, so treat yourself with some respect!
You can not make a positive out of a negative
If someone says to you, ‘Don’t think of a pink elephant!’, then what image appears in your mind? The brain does not automatically process negatives. Putting a negation in front of a sentence does not work, either for your own mind or the universe at large.
For example :
I don’t want to catch a cold! The message is: Catch a cold.
Don’t behave like that! The message is: Behave like that.
Don’t touch that! The message is: Touch that.
I don’t want any more problems! The message is: More problems.
The message in these is exactly the opposite of what is being expressed. That is the message which our subconscious minds [and the Universe at large] receives. In other words, the negations of don’t, not or no, are simply ignored by the Universe, ourselves and others. Take into consideration that your success in life and what we receive is a result of what you put out there, your power words.
Positive words encourage others to be positive too
If somebody gives you a negative, it is important to reject or nullify the negative with power words. To agree, even for the sake of peace, is to accept the negatives as your own. Always counter a negative expression with a positive expression so that at worst you walk away without their negativity.
You can get away with an explanation such as: ‘You know, I used to think just like that, but lately I have been focusing on the more positive aspects………….’ If you can be helpful or encouraging to others then your interaction is positive.
Sometimes, of course, somebody is determined you have to receive their serve of doom and gloom for the day and the only action you can take is to say ‘Not interested’ and walk away.
Positive words build better relationships
Have you ever thought about how you speak to your partner, or how you treat them in private or public? The kind of words you choose can have a much deeper impact than you can imagine. The words you choose can make your relationship a lot better, or at times, it can push your partner away from you forever.
Positive words build a better life
By consciously choosing positive and empowering words, you build a positive and empowering life. By using positive words you send out positive high-energy vibrations. As you know similar vibrations will be attracted back to you. Before you speak, think about what your words will attract. If you’re like most people, you only want the best coming back to you.
So before you speak, THINK!
T – Is it TRUE?
H – Is it HELPFUL?
I – is it INSPIRING?
N – is it NECESSARY?
K – is it KIND?
Sharing is caring!
Is it easy or difficult for you to choose positive words?
How has this affected you and the people around you?
