Our Words Matter

Our Words Matter

The words we speak matter. Or more specifically, our words help to shape matter. What we say and the thoughts we think are creative and powerful. They are also the lens for how we currently view and experience the world.

Our words, and the intention behind them, have the power to comfort, heal, motivate and encourage. They also can shame, harm and wound. It is always our choice.

It is said that god spoke the world into being…”In the beginning was the Word.” And through science we have the Big Bang Theory and Quantum Mechanics. At their foundation, each viewpoint speaks to the expansive creative power of energy and frequency as the building blocks of our physical world. Everything is vibration, including our words, thoughts and emotions.
In 2008, a friend introduced me to the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto. He was a Japanese scientist who studied the effect of sound and vibration on water.

In his book, The Hidden Messages in Water, Dr. Emoto describes experiments where they showed the water either positive or negative words or played different types of music. Then the water was frozen.

What he discovered was quite incredible! The water that received positive words and attention formed beautiful crystalline structures. And the water that was exposed to negativity, formed crystals that had distortions and malformations.

His findings showed “water has the ability to copy and memorize information” which is incredibly important when we consider that as human beings, we are made up of about 70% water.

Dr. Emoto’s work demonstrates how our words, thoughts and feelings (all of which are vibration, energy and information) greatly impact the water in our body, affecting how we feel, the quality of our energy, and the frequencies of our cells.

Words can act like tuning forks.

In sound healing, we use tuning forks to introduce a particular frequency of vibration into the body’s subtle energy fields. The tone of the tuning fork establishes a resonance for reprogramming the body’s cells. And when we consider Dr. Emoto’s work, the waves produced by the tuning fork are also affecting the water within us.

I believe words work in a similar way. Words have resonance. They are symbols and containers of energy and meaning. By consciously choosing the words we use, we are inviting particular qualities of energy to resonate within and around us.

Let’s invite more positive energy into our days by choosing our words one week at a time.

In a world that feels increasingly chaotic, I’ve been thinking a lot about how to bring more peace and positivity into each day. When everything around us is swirling, it can help to have something to anchor to.

What has emerged is a simple weekly practice:

Word of the Week

By choosing a word to explore each week, we can consciously invite more of that energy into our lives. It’s a way to bring more of the frequency and meaning of that word into each day, while minimizing the things we don’t want.

At the start of each week, I’ll be sharing the Word of the Week (#wordoftheweek #wow) on Instagram and FB. We’ll have a visual reminder of our WoW, as well as writing prompts, audios or other tools to help us explore the energy and intention of that word and its qualities.

Each Word of the Week will also live on the website (you’ll find it here) so that you can dive in at any time. And after a while, you’ll have access to a growing list of words so you can pick a past Word of the Week if the one currently being offered doesn’t resonate with you.

I hope you’ll join me in exploring this new practice together. Let’s choose our words and use our words to create more health and happiness each day!
