Are You Aware of the Power of Words and the Effects They Have?

As I was working on changing my life and setting my new intentions it really became clear to me how important the wording of the intentions is. Slight variances can have dramatic results or guide you in a completely different direction from where you want to be. If you really think about it the power of words on your life and the life all around you is amazing. I have seen the difference in results of talking nicely and angrily to a plant. And yet we use words everyday without really thinking of the impact we create with them. This inspired me to write this months entery....
The Power of Words

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light” and there was light ….In the beginning there was the Word” (Genesis)

Words have their own individual vibrational frequencies and they have a power of their own that influences the entire world. Each one of us has an ability to change the world by realizing the power of words.

To understand this lets first start from this viewpoint, the average human starts out life being 99% water as a fetus. When you are born you are 90% water. By adulthood your body is 70% water.

Through out your life you exist mostly as water. This connection applies to all people all over the world. In fact our world is 70% covered by water and is the only planet in our universe thus far discovered that has it.

It is the means by which nourishment is circulated through out your body and serves as a transporter of energy. You can only survive three days without it.

Across many cultures water is representative of emotions and a means of purification by cleansing. Many religions, from Christianity to Buddhism, use water to purify and cleanse. In Esoteric studies it also represents the cosmic consciousness.

Water, the universal solvent that is biologically critical for proliferation of life, is believed by scientists to be a by-product of star formation.

Dr. Masaru Emoto who wrote The Hidden Messages In Water spent more than 10 years studying the crystal formations of water and through his studies found out just how much impact words have on them.

In wanting to find physical evidenced of the ability of water to memorize information Dr. Masaru and his researcher began photographing water crystals. He used one hundred types of water in one hundred different Petri dishes. They were frozen at -20°C for three hours in a freezer which resulted in the formation of drops of ice in the Petri dishes about one millimeter across. The crystals appeared when they shined a light on the crowns of the drops of ice, which they then photographed.

They began experimenting by using only distilled water from the grocery store and exposing the water to different types of music and then words. They were astounded by the results. The variety of crystal shapes that were formed by both positive and negative words was amazing and unmistakable. Positive words created beautiful well-formed crystals that at times resembled the meaning of the words where negative words barely formed any crystals at all and were more often ill formed or completely dispersed.

Dr. Masaru states “water is the mirror to the soul…by aligning itself with the consciousness of human beings. To understand how water has this ability first you must understand this fact: existence is vibration”.

The science of quantum mechanics acknowledges that substance is nothing more than vibration. The entire universe is in a state of vibration and each thing generates its own frequency. What vibrates also creates a sound although you are not able to hear every one of them.

In the journal 21st Century Science and Technology, Warren Hamerman wrote that human beings generate a frequency that can be represented by sounds at approximately forty-two octaves above middle C.

Crystal formations of water are effected by words because they are vibration. Water mirrors all the vibrations created in the world, and these vibrations can then take on a form that can be seen with the human eye.

I’d like you to ask yourself if you haven’t had a similar experience. You enter a room and the atmosphere feels heavy and tense. You look around and see two people looking just plain ticked-off and fuming and you can tell that they have just finished having an argument. What I want you to think about is why you could feel that tension and heaviness before you knew what had happened.

Your emotions and feelings have an effect on the world moment by moment. If you send out words and feelings of creativity, love, and healing then you will be contributing to the creation of a beautiful world. However, emitting messages of hate and destruction, you contribute to the destruction of the universe.

Being aware of words is equally important when speaking to others. Everyone knows how draining it is to be around people who complain or gossip all the time. However we are drawn like magnets to cheerful people who make us laugh and fill us with energy. Based on the principals of vibration for every negative emotion there is an exactly opposite positive emotion, yin and yang.

An old Mother Goose rhyme goes “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words may never hurt me”. We all now know different. Words can hurt they can also heal and nourish.

Doctors of Alternative Medicines know that ailments are largely a result of negative emotions that can cloud your perception of the world and yourself. They can damage your body, mind, and spirit. If you can positively alter the cause of such emotions, you have the capacity to recover from illness.

Words are an expression of the soul. Thus the condition of your soul is very likely to have an enormous impact on the water that composes as much as 70% of your body and the impact will in no small way affect your bodies. Generally people who are in good health are in good spirits.

Change your life for the better by being aware of the things you say and choosing positive words to communicate with others. If you are constantly putting yourself down then you will no doubt feel as such. However, if you give yourself positive affirmations and words of gratitude you will feel more positive about yourself to aspire to such qualities. You will then be able to do the same for others.

This frozen water sample was taken from the Fujiwara Dam lake in Japan.

This is a sample from the same lake after a one-hour prayer conducted beside the dam by chief priest of the Jyuhouin Temple after the first sample was taken. The difference is truly stunning!
