As I was aimlessly scrolling through my social media feed recently, I suddenly came upon a post that shared three simple words...
*Words Are Sacred*
I stopped my scrolling and felt the truth in what I read. And it got me thinking... How often do I consider the words I use to be sacred?
As I was pondering this, I felt an overwhelming sense of responsibility for my words. I saw them as if they were precious seedlings needing care and nurturing. I felt it deep-down in my body. Honestly, this visceral response was surprising and interesting to me.
In my work, I’m highly aware of the sacredness of my words. When I’m channeling Spirit, guides or loved ones, each word is divine and sacred.
But this got me thinking about how I honor and hold space for the words I use in other areas of my life.
I know that I’m am not always aware of this truth when I’m feeling angry, fearful or hurt. At times, I fling my words around quite haphazardly, especially when I’m frustrated.
This line of pondering isn’t to judge or shame myself. In fact, quite the opposite. When I’m able to recognize these ah-ha moments, it’s when real change can happen. And it’s empowering to know that I get to choose how I want to use my words and what energy gets associated with them.
For example, I can choose to use my words to complain, lash out, or gossip. Or I can use my words for kindness towards myself and others. And if I’m truly aware of the sacredness of my words, I can also speak hard truths, set boundaries and stand my ground in a way that is honoring.
I get to decide how I want to feel after the words are spoken, written or thought.
This is a really powerful realization for me! And it’s one that I’m getting on a much deeper level then ever before.
Perhaps you are now starting to see the sacredness in your own words.
May you wield them wisely.
