As a teacher, it’s always interesting to hear new students come into the class room talking because their language is not as positive as those who have been studying Kinesiology for some time.
One of the key things we begin to teach our students is the power of language and how what we say has an effect on ourselves and those we converse with.
The mind is so powerful that it will often remember the last words or so you say in any sentence. And being so powerful, it takes on the words as fact. It does not discern what is tone or sarcasm. It doesn’t know what a joke is or what is fact or fiction. All it knows is words.
Think about what most people say when you ask them “how are you today?”. I often get the response “not bad”. When I hear “not bad”, that makes me feel a little icky and I’m not even the person saying it. Your body remembers ‘bad’ and takes that energy on. My trick for these people (and more for myself to raise my own energy) is to repeat back to them “So, you’re less than good?”. Not only do i raise my own vibration by saying the word ‘good’ but I also help others to raise theirs by allowing them to hear the word ‘good’. I once worked with a gentleman who when asked how he was today, he would always say “‘t’riffic” as in terrific and he couldn’t help but feel positive when he said it. That’s not to say that we should lie about it and pretend that we’re fine but we should attempt changing the words around so they feel and sound more positive.
Consider your sayings, the things you say often as a figure of speech that may be keeping you from your higher vibration or higher energy levels. (I heard a few “It does my head in” and “It’s quite difficult” over the weekend which are less than fabulous expressions – think about what you say and consider how the body might take these on as fact).
Language is incredibly powerful and without us knowing, we pick up other people’s sayings which is why it’s so important to be clear about the language you are using. For your benefit and the benefit of others.
Try some of these sentences for some common things this week:
Instead of I feel sick
Try I feel less than good today or I feel less than 100% healthy
A Response to “Thank you”
Instead of no worries or not a problem
Try It’s a pleasure or you’re welcome
Instead of I’m so tired
try I’m not very energised at the moment or I could do with a good night’s sleep
Start tuning in to what you say and consider how the body might take it on as fact.
This week, choose positive language.
