The Power of Your Words

the-power-of-your-words

In these trying times right now, what continues to warm my heart, is the Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life community. Week after week, using our words and inspiration we come together to be the change we all wish to see in this world. It’s such a joy for me to share my experiences with you, and pass on tips and tricks that I learn along the way that empower and encourage us to be our very best selves. What I want to share with you this week is pretty basic; however, it’s really important, especially right now; the very real power of your words.

As you know, everything is energy― words included. The words you speak and write have vibration. They imprint on your soul and to those you speak to. Words influence your future thoughts and actions. They have a ripple effect on our lives. Words are very powerful.

If you think about it, because of the internet, there are exponentially more conversations and interactions happening at all hours of the day than ever before. This means that there are infinite more opportunities to speak with hatred or to choose to speak with love.

With this in mind, I got thrown off my game this week when a stranger on the Internet called me a liar (and other not so nice words). Granted, I know this is pretty benign in internet troll speak, however, it truly shook me to my core that someone out there could be so incensed by my opinion to take to the internet to call me names.

This led me on a mission to peruse the internet in my “research” of how people talk to each other, especially when in a disagreement of some sort. It pains me to tell you this but, it’s really ugly out there.Yes, there is a lot of division in this country and in our world. Disagreement and debates are part of what makes us human, but it’s been taken to a new low,

It seems to me that we have lost the sense of how to talk to each other, how to hold thoughtful conversation, and how to disagree with grace. We can debate and argue with out negative, personal attacks. We can stand on opposite sides without taking digs and trying to inflict mental harm. It’s time that we start taking responsibility for our words, which I believe ultimately lead to our actions.

So I am here this week, to remind you that words matter. The power of your words can be used to further conflict or increase understanding.

The language you use in conversation with one another, especially when talking to someone you disagree with, is hugely important. What impact do you wish to make when you speak? And why? It’s important to ask yourself these questions daily.

When entering conversations this week, I challenge you to remember the the questions of The Three Gatekeepers from the Arab proverb:

Is it true?

Is it kind?

Is it necessary?

I would love to hear how your interactions with others are going this week as you keep this proverb top in your mind. Let me know in the comments below!

Wishing you all peace and so much love,

Michelle
