Our words carry energy, they have weight. This energy gives power and the potential for our words to heal or hurt. Most of us can remember a time when someone said a word to us and it just stuck. Good or bad...either a compliment on a work accomplishment or being called a name from a friend. It just stuck!
This experience reminds us on the impact our words have on not only those around us, but ourselves. It reminds us that being conscious, means being aware of how we use our words.
Our words are are not just powerful transmitters to convey meaning, but transmitters of feeling. When you are more conscious, you can listen to others before you speak and center yourself as you gather your thoughts. This is when we attain the power of speech.
The words we use in our everyday life can either destroy or build relationships with ourselves and other people. Get mindful and convey words that are deep, sincere and positive. Choose your words wisely.
