Our thoughts and our words matter. With our words we can either uplift or diminish ourselves or another… our words can heal or hurt. Many of us carry with us into adulthood the wounds of word…scars that cut into our very soul….beliefs about ourselves that are not true.
Do you remember the incredible work of the late Dr. Masaru Emoto?
He “discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them…and that water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, water exposed to negative thoughts, form incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.”
What is in our thoughts or on our lips for a moment can become a heavy burden another carries for a lifetime. To feel into these striking images of how the vibration of our thoughts and words affect water crystals….and to imagine what we would see if we saw the results of what our thoughts and words do to ourselves and each other.
Our dreams show us this…how we were formed from the words that poured onto us and into us. These then became beliefs about ourselves and others. Are the characters in our dreams, including ourselves, whole and healthy, vibrant and alive…or are they damaged, fearful and aggressive. How we were spoken to is often how we learned to speak to and think about ourselves and others…and how we think of and speak to the most tender part of ourself…our child soul. Our dreams bring us these encounters, not to judge or shame us, but to help us understand the deep and lasting affect of the words spoken to us and by us and to help us learn….no, remember…the truer en-souled way of speaking.
