The Power of Positive Words - Why the energy of words affect you!
The power of positive words: Words contain both meaning and energy
Words have many layers and are more than just a way to communicate because words have energy - they hold a vibration, have power and sometimes show our secrets.
Words have the power to impact us both negatively and positively on a daily basis. After reading Sharon Anne Klingler's book Power Words, I understand why we feel good or bad vibes from certain words. And that's because there are actually positive energy words and negative energy words.
More than a Definition - Words are Energy
A word is more then it's definition because it contains energy and power. Klingler explains that we actually feel words.
To try it out, close your eyes and think of the word inch. Notice what happens with your energy. What do you feel as you think or say the word?
Now, try the same thing with the word mile. Did you feel a difference in your energy between the those two words? I definitely did when I tried this.
And now close your eyes and think of the words short and tall? Did your energy shrink with short and expand with tall? What about the words shrink and expand? It's crazy how you really can feel the difference.
Klingler explains that even though words don't seem to have an emotional value we can still feel a difference between them. Words have energy.
Images and the Power of Words
You may not even realize it, but you have specific images and sensations attached to certain words.
Lets try another word experiment: think of the word soft. What comes to mind? What images or feelings pop up for you with the word soft?
How about the word hard?
Do you feel a difference between the words spark, light and shine versus dull, dark or heavy. Can you feel an energy shift with those words? I would consider the first group of words to be positive energy words!
Your Memories, Emotions and Words
Depending on your personal experiences, you will have positive or negative attachments to words. Happy times would be associated with a positive energy word, where unpleasant and painful memories would have negative words attached. Are there any words that trigger specific emotions in you? Maybe it's a specific name or a place that effects you?
Because of our emotional attachment to certain words, they create our lives. Our words color, and also expose, how we view our world. Can you think of any words that you use that actually reveal something about you?
The Power of Positive Words
Using words that inspire you on a daily basis will change your thoughts, energy, and therefore your actions - which will bring more positive energy to you. Using negative words, or self defeating words, only surround you with negative energy and bring more negative circumstances to you.
The fact that words have the power to reach us on an emotional level is just one reason to pay attention to the words we use!
“The language you use brings forth the life that you create. And the words that you use over and over are the language that teaches you - and teaches the world about you. Your words are reflections - images of yourself.” - Sharon Anne Klingler
The Vibrational Frequency of Words
Words also vibrate at different frequencies which has an effect on us. A good example is the word love. The word love vibrates at a much higher frequency than the word hate. You can actually feel the difference in the energy of the two words.
You can attract positive energy to you by using high vibrational words or attract negative energy to you with low vibrational words. Positive vibrational words are those said in meditation, chanting or during prayer.
Other positive energy words are words like love, inspiration, hope, joy, happiness and even words like possibility. You can feel the difference between the energy of negative and positive words if you pay attention to how they make you feel.
Color and the Energy of Words
Color also plays a part with the vibration and frequency of words. What colors do you see with the words hot versus cold? Or the word anger versus peace? I tend to see dark red for anger (I'm sure most would see red) and I see light blue and white for peace.
“Each word - even when it’s not spoken - carries a vibration that can impact your other senses. This vibration can cause you to sense heavy or light, cold or hot, bright colors or dark.”
Using the right words can actually raise your vibrational frequency so be on the look out for good energy words!
Shapes of Words
The shape of words on a page can also change how we feel. Check out the difference in the word below:
It's the same word but they cause very different feelings! I have an open feeling with the first word, feel very claustrophobic with the second, and I almost have a feeling of relief when I look at the last word that's correctly spaced.
Understand the power of Positive Energy by using positive energy words to motivate you, strengthen you and attract more good into your life!
Surround yourself every day with positive energy and raise your vibrational frequency.
