“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”~ Rudyard Kipling

Words can move mountains and bring about a revolution. I believe the most powerful positive weapon we each possess is our words. But just mere words don’t bring about change. Those words have to carry weight, have to mean something and must have a positive energy all their own to bring about positive change.

We each possess the power to plant a seed of love, success, happiness and healing with our words. In the process of using these powerful words, we not only nudge others positively, but reveal a bit of ourselves too. We reveal who we are, what we think and what we believe in.

So what are these powerful words that can bring about positive change? They are a combination of just short single words or a phrase….To use these words optimally in your speech and in your interactions creates healing magic on your well being. Here is how…..

Powerful WORDS to Positively Change Your Life

“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.” ~ Emily Dickinson

There was an old romantic song I used to love that went something like this “Words, don’t come easy to me. How can I find the way to make you feel I love you, words don’t come easy…”

Its funny how when we want to really speak from the heart and share our true feelings, the words don’t come easy. Yet, when we want to lash out or get angry, those words just pour out. It just goes to show how negatively entwined we are. We need to work at infusing our life and our speech with powerful words that can bring positive change in our life.

1) “We” instead of “me” : In your daily interactions with people, try to infuse more consolidating words like ‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’ etc . Using these words means you are being a team player and that you are bothered enough about the opposite person to include him/her in your life. On the other hand when you use words like “I”, “me”, “myself” all the time, you come across as self involved and self indulgent. For example instead of saying “I am so busy today, and can’t meet up.” say “Can we meet up another time for coffee?”. When you think about others hearts just like your own, we wont hurt them nor will we hurt ourselves. It expands your heart to include everyone and everything in it.

2) Use appreciative and asking words: There are simple words that show a person they are valued and they generate positive emotions and create heart satisfaction. Taking the time to sincerely say to another, ‘Thank you, I really appreciate your efforts,’ or ‘We couldn’t have done it without you!’ can really boost morale. Being appreciative and acknowledging others by asking for their opinion only takes seconds to say but can help create a sense of well-being in others. By acknowledging and appreciating others you are opening up to being more compassionate. A softer, compassionate heart is also a healing heart.

3) Use “love” all the time: I love to use the word “love”! Its my absolute favorite word. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and makes the opposite person feel what I am feeling for them in an instant. How amazing that one word “love” can have such a profound effect. To be able to instill a sense of being loved with the simple use of this word when you really feel it, is indeed being love. Right?!?!
