Words have vibration and our mindset and the vibrational energy of our words impacts everything in our life. How does our frequency change when we’re empowered vs. disempowered?
Words Have Vibration…
Thank you for joining me today. I’m recording this from beautiful San Diego and I love that you’re tuning in with me. Today, we’re going to talk about mindset and the vibrational energy of our words, because (spoken or silent) words have vibration.
But before we get into today’s topic, if you would join me in just taking a breathing break and what I would love for you to experiment with is to inhale, but we’re going to create a longer exhale then our inhale, so what I mean by that is if you’ll breathe in for a count of three (1, 2, 3) and then you’ll exhale longer for a count of five (4, 3, 2, 1)…. And, if you’ll do that again when you’re ready, inhale for a count of three… And exhale for a count of five (4, 3, 2, 1)….
When we exhale longer than we inhale, it actually sends a message to our heart, to our nervous system (Autonomic Nervous System – ANS), and it relaxes our Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS). It tells us that we’re safe, that things are calm and that our heart rate can then slow down.
We can use breath in a variety of ways to either stimulate our energy, or relax our energy. I’m going to do a podcast about breathing in a later episode. But I love to do this at the beginning of these episodes, because it really brings us into focus.
And the more we can do this during our day, the more we reset our energy, we re-tune ourselves and we get in the habit of actually being fully present.
Creating vibrational frequency with our words & phrases, because words have vibration.
So, in keeping with our theme of energetic wellbeing, we really need to talk about the topic of vibrational energy, vibrational frequency with the words and the phrases that we think and we use on a daily basis. And one of these phrases that came up for me recently was the term “hard work.” In our culture we’ve heard this term often and people will say,
“You know, it takes a lot of hard work to achieve anything.” “You’re not going to get anywhere without hard work.” “You know, it was worth it, but it was a lot of hard work.”
So, we have these, these typical phrases that we use over and over and over again.
And for some people the phrase hard work is highly motivating… For other people the phrase and the vibrational energy of that phrase, “hard work” is disempowering.
I had a client recently who was dealing with this specific phrase and she said to me,
“My energy has been really low and I’ve been working on rebuilding my energy and I know that I need to put in the hard work to create what I want, but then I don’t do it because it just feels exhausting to me. And then I feel guilty. And it’s this vicious cycle.”
When I spoke with her about the actual phrase of how she was actually speaking and thinking about doing the “work” that she needed to do…
I asked her…
How did it make her feel in her body?
And she said that it made her feel exhausted.
This is very typical.
We don’t realize that we are actually saying and thinking things that are affecting the vibrational flow in our body.
Words have vibration.
And in order to change our mindset, all we need to do is to change the words and the phrases that we’re using and attune them to what really serves us individually.
Again, for somebody else the phrase hard work can be highly motivating because they have a memory, they have a memory of a family member who worked really hard to build something and they achieve something wonderful and that inspires them.
But for other people, the phrase hard work just does not vibrationally fit.
An exercise that I’d like to give you today…
If you’d like to start to explore the vibrational energies of your words and belief systems, is to simply break down these “thought forms” that are occurring in your life.
If we take the phrase hard work – for me, what I did was – I went for a walk because, that’s a beautiful way to move energy and open up the mind – gets the blood flowing and the Qi (energy) flowing.
And I thought about the phrase “hard work.” For me the phrase, “hard work” does not really inspire a forward motion of elevated energy for me. I often also feel like why should I do that if it’s going to be hard work? It doesn’t make sense to me because I feel that everything should be aligned work.
So I started to think about this and I started to break down the phrase and thought, well okay, I understand the concept that you have to put in the hours. You have to put in the consistency.
But what about “strategic” work?
And I started to play with words and when I saw the word in my mind – “strategic” – what I saw were pictures – I saw arrows and lines and connect the dots – and it was a more inspiring phrase. The vibrational energy of it for me was more inspiring.
It was like a stepping stone forward, instead of hard, it was strategic. There’s a plan, there’s a forward motion.
So then, I continued to play with it and I said, okay well, “work.” Work is such a loaded word, right?
You know, I’ve done many things in my life and they’ve taken a lot of time and they have taken consistency, and so it did look like a lot of work, but I didn’t personally think about it as work because I was enjoying it. So I thought, well, it wasn’t really work. It was a “path.” I was on a path or I was “on a journey.” And then that kept me moving forward. Okay, so now I’m on a strategic path or a strategic “journey.”
And I did the same things with the word “path and journey” for me, they are forward moving. A path can be winding and you experience different things, but it’s still going forward. A journey still goes forward.
So I began to put phrases together, for example, such as I am on my “strategic business path,” or “this is a journey” for me and I do “strategic things” to help me move forward.
Everything that you can do in your life that will eliminate words and phrases that cause your energy to actually drop, or be stuck or blocked. It’s really valuable to look at those things.
And you may be completely unconscious of them, but this is why this exercise is really great.
If you’re looking to explore more, you may want to listen or read to my post called “Freedom from Stuck Patterns.”
Taking any phrase, any word, any topic, something that you’re thinking about over and over in your head… Feel how the energy feels in your body. Is it inspiring you? You’ll know you’ll feel elevated, you’ll just be doing things, it won’t even be an issue.
But if there’s something that’s coming up where you feel guilty or you feel stuck, or you feel depressed, or you feel fearful, think about the actual vibration of the words and the phrases that you’re hearing and that you’re thinking about.
If you get in the habit of doing this consistently and looking at things in your life as to whether they’re really working for you, or not working for you, and how attuned are they to you, you’ll notice great shifts in everything that you begin to manifest in your life.
Thank you for being here, for being everything you are and for tuning in with me today.
