“Words are like eggs dropped from great heights; you can no more call them back than ignore the mess they leave when they fall.”
― Jodi Picoult
Last I checked, the Yellow Pages doesn’t have an entry for “Prophets” like they probably would have back in Biblical days. But if you want a glimpse into your future, listen to the words you use to describe yourself and your life.
When you say things like “This is going to be a great day,” or “Things always work out for me,” you are using your words to predict and foretell a positive future.
When you talk smack about your life, even little things like, “Oh, I wish I’d gotten up earlier and wasn’t running so late. I wish that idiot in traffic hadn’t cut me off,” you create a resonant field of problems.
Instead of playing beautiful symphonies with our words, instead of utilizing them to come to our aid, we too often waste them moaning about problems.
Like a fingerprint, each word is unique. It has its own frequency and creative power. Each word has a vibration, same as hitting a particular piano key produces say, a Middle C.
At this point, most of us have little control over the ticker tape of thoughts that run through our minds, but we can monitor the commentary that proceeds out of our mouths.
Since I believe in taking my attention off problems and animating a different possibility from the infinite field, I decided to rerun a blog post about two important words.
The first is “Shazam!” I’d heard this word before. Captain Marvel uses it when transforming into his superself.
Jessica Ortner (from the Tapping Solution) told me that she and her friends always “shazam” each other as a way of sending positive energy. So whatever great goals you have for today, I send you “Shazam!”
The other word I love (and need to remind myself of) was invented by Phil Parker. He’s a brilliant London osteopath who is able to transform we humans’ “issues” seemingly overnight.
And it starts with the word du with a ^ over the “u.” Instead of saying “I am angry” or “I am poor” or “I am…. (whatever you don’t want to be) say, I am du^ing anger or I am du^ing poor which makes it a temporary state. It reduces the charge.
The reason he chose not to use the word “do” is because that reeks of blame. Last thing any of us want to do is point finger at ourselves. That’s what started the “issues” in the first place.
Two tiny words—huge possible change.
