Monday Mantra:: I Choose Positive Language

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.

Monday Mantra:: I Choose to Use Positive Language

Today’s Monday Mantra is a pretty important one. It seems simple and it seems like it wouldn’t really be life changing but I can guarantee you that it is in fact life changing.

Here’s the thing. Your body remembers the last word you use. So imagine that all day, every day when someone asks you how you are, you say “Not bad”. Your body remembers the “bad” and each time you say it, you reinforce that word into your body’s cellular system. The same goes for when someone says “thank you” – a lot of people tend to use the term “No worries” or “no problem”. Your body remembers “Problem” or “Worries”. Be aware too that the people you say these phrases to also hear these words and it can be energy draining for them too.

Personally, as a practitioner, I hear these terms all day every day from clients and I am constantly rephrasing them for my clients  so that it helps them to build their energy up and reminds them to use more positive language and it helps me to not be drained by the words they use.

Consider phrases that get thrown around these days like:

– Fully sick
– That’s so depressing
– Does my head in
– Such a pain in the neck
– etc etc etc

Consider how these literally might effect your energy and your body. Lots of people use affirmations to boost their energy and manifest their desires. The phrases above, when used often become just like affirmations. So choose your phrases wisely.

So here’s a little fun exercise to do this week to start training yourself (and those around you) into some positive language habits.

– Instead of saying “Not bad” when someone asks you how you are, try “good” or “less than great”

– Instead of saying “No worries” or “No problems”, try “It’s a pleasure” (my personal favourite) or “you’re welcome”.

Then, take notice of how you feel at the end of the day after using these new terms and see if you can further enhance it by finding some new phrases for other common sayings you use that might be less than fabulous.

As always, download and save to your desktop or phone or print it and pin it somewhere you’ll see it. When you see it, say it. And if you know someone who would also benefit from this mantra, share it.
