Choose Words Wisely
Communication is key for sustaining relationships, be it professional or personal ones. The words communicated can either accelerate or decelerate the pace of either relationship. The expression is essential but expression needs to be worth expressing.
Choose your words wisely. Words once spoken can either transform or destroy the reputation, relation, or life. Words have the power to cast an image and to leave behind a mark; it can be either good or bad. The choice of words can make or break a relationship. Things once said are irrevocable. Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven not forgotten.
The Power of Words
Jeff Brown said, “Words are so powerful. They can crush a heart or heal it. They can shame a soul or liberate it. They can shatter dreams or energize them. They can obstruct the connection or invite it. They can create defenses or melt then. We have to use words wisely.”
Words truly have magic. Say something, Abracadabra, a beautiful magical life trick or merely a broken relationship. Words have energy. Masaru Emoto proposed a hypothesis which states that “words have the ability to directly affect the material world”. He had a series of water crystal experiments and hypothesized that emotional energy and vibrations could change the physical structure of water. His experiments consisted of exposing different water samples with different words and music. Then froze them and examined crystals under a microscope. Water samples that were exposed to positive speech had visually appealing crystals than those with negative words. Human body is approximately 60% water and according to Emoto, words we use may have an intense effect on our bodies, health and well-being.
You have two ears and one mouth for a reason, listen patiently and speak wisely. Make your speech to be spell-bounding rather than deterring. By the end of World War II the allies directed a message to Japanese, to surrender. They responded with mokusatsu, which can either be translated as “to withhold comment” or “to ignore”. History says that Japanese meant to have discussion and then decide, but the allies interpreted it as to ignore the demand for surrender. And the allies ended World War II by dropping bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki transforming the globe.
The choice of words has an immediate and direct impact on our surroundings. It can be from words said by others or the inner self-talk, choose them wisely. Words have energy, use that energy positively. Eliminate thoughts and words that bring on negative energy. Think words that make you cheerful and exude cheerfulness.
