The creative power of your words: Do your words betray you?

"A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled." -Ancient Scripture

Your reality is the sum total of the words you have been saying, thinking and believing of others. Every word you say, think or believe is a seed. And you reap the fruit of those words. When you set intentions and goals and then speak contrary words (because of what your senses tell you)--- you hold yourself apart from what you want to manifest!

Are you speaking of fear, doubt and unbelief? Or do you speak of vision, faith and expansion? The ancient scriptures, say that God/Source Energy created the heavens and the earth with words. He spoke the world into existence. "Let there be light."

Watch your words
Be aware of your internal dialogue and your conversations with others. Your words can be empowering or dis-empowering. 

"Death and life are in the power of the tongue."-Ancient Scripture

Your words can create or destroy your life. When someone asks you how your business, life, weight loss or relationship is going-- how do you respond? Do you gripe and complain? Or do you focus on the progress or positive aspects.

Exercise: For the next 21 days, whenever you catch yourself thinking/saying anything negative-- add the words "...and that's the way I want it" to the end of it (since good or bad-- your words are seeds). Then see how quickly you change how you  think and speak!


"I'm tired." becomes ("I'm tired and that's the way I want it.")


"I'm full of energy...and that's the way I want it!"

Which is better to think or say?

Honor your words
Do you make commitments to yourself and others and not keep them? When you do this your heart doubts your integrity and your words begin to lose their positive power.

Take every word captive
The tongue is a small part of your body, but it has a huge impact on your life. It takes effort to catch your communication patterns. Be aware of your conversation (internally and with others). Don't allow yourself to speak from your limited beliefs and fears.

            "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks."-Ancient Scripture

Your words are preceded by thoughts. Don't empower your thoughts by giving them a voice with your words! Speak positive, faith-filled and powerful words! Encourage yourself. Encourage others.

Use positive affirmations and mantras throughout the day
Affirm and confess with your mouth and believe in your heart. Don't speak wimpy, empty words!

Your words must be mixed with faith and feeling! Hebrews 4:2 says, "The word didn't profit them because it was not mixed with faith."  So, believe in your heart (and don't doubt) that the things you say will come to pass.

  1. Now this is powerful! I've been saying this for a long time that we have to be careful what we speak over ourselves. Whatever we are speaking, we are also planting seeds in our spirits and "it" will start to manifest into our life. Powerful article! I enjoyed reading it.
