Is abundance seem like a impossibility? Does manifestation seem to fall short of needs? It's all in the words we think, write, and speak. Learn 5 simple steps to improve word choices, and increase abundance in our lives.
Words are powerful! Words move energy! Words define our inner beliefs, and define who we are. They communicate with the greater world how we view ourselves. Yet, we use words without thinking. We can be our own "worst" enemy, by sabotaging our inherent flow of abundance, well-being, and happiness.
Our choices of words define our place in our family, society, and the world at large. Whether thought, written or spoken, our choice of words continues our life circumstances. Our inner dialog is as important as the public face we choose to show to the world.
To change our circumstances or bring in more abundance, we need to consider what we are truly asking for with our words and thoughts. If we want monetary abundance, are we sabotaging ourselves with our thoughts and words? In other words, do we verbally ask for something, and think "it will never happen for me".
How do we change this series of events that continue to send us on the same cycle of frustration?
Document Words and Thoughts
The easiest way to learn what we are saying is to keep a journal. This could be in hard copy, on the computer, or a voice recording on a cell phone. The important part is to honestly document words and thoughts. This is a tool for the individual to use to gain perspective on their verbal, written, and thought word choices.
Look at What it with an Unbiased Perspective
This can be easier said than done. We need to analyze our words and word choices from a neutral perspective. It means to look at ourselves as if we were someone else. A question to ask would be "Would we want to be this person's friend?" Or, "Is this a positive or negative person?" It does take some practice to look at our own thoughts, and see them from an outsider's point of view.
This step could also include working with a trusted friend or family member. Sometimes, an outside voice helps us to see the subtle nuisances of our words, or choice of words. It gives us an outside perspective, and more information to work with to make changes.
Consciously Make Small Changes
We need to consciously decide to make a change. It's easiest to start with small changes that add up to a big change over time. It is easier to make these smaller changes, and make them permanent in our lives. A small change could be deciding that words like "should", "could", or "would" are not going to be part of our vocabulary, and a stronger, action-oriented verb replaces it.
Action-oriented verbs are stronger, and help us move forward. These words set us up for success, because they are geared to action. Passive verbiage give us a choice to not do anything, and just talk about the changes we would like to make in our lives.
With small changes, it may be difficult to notice any change at all. It is good to document feelings, actions, and choices. It is easy to change back to the known, when we feel discouraged or over-whelmed with our lives. It is important to look back through our journal entries to see the changes. It may be surprising how much change happens, and it just feels normal. This is a good sign. It means we have made changes, and these changes are more likely to be permanent in our lives.
This is the most difficult part of the process for most people. We find it easier to be patient with others than ourselves. Somewhere, we learned that we should be able to instantly change, and make the change become permanent.
We need to apply the patience we give others to ourselves. It will take time to make these changes, and keep them active in our lives. We may find that some of the changes may not be what we want, so it is good to keep working on ourselves until we make the changes we want.
