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.
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.
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.
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.
What has emerged is a simple weekly practice:
Word of the Week
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!
