Why do the words that you choose to say determine the outcome in your life? Words have meaning and when you say particular words there is energy attached to them.
“I can’t afford it” to “I choose not to purchase it.”
When you say, “I can’t afford to take a vacation right now.” If feels very disempowering and creates a very low vibration. Instead of saying “I can’t afford XYZ”, say “I choose not to purchase this at this time. I choose to take a vacation later. I choose to do XYZ.” If you are saving your money to purchase a house and therefore feel you can’t go on a vacation and also purchase the home, focus on the fact that you are buying a new home. “I choose to save my money for my new house and take my vacation later.” Ask yourself right now, what feels better, “I can’t afford” or “I choose to”. Which one is more empowering?
“The problem is . . .” to “There is an opportunity”
When you start a sentence with “The problem is . . .” it sends out a signal that there is lack in some way. Based on the Law of Attraction, what you send out you will attract back to you. Saying the phrase, “The problem is . . .” focuses on a particular problem and not the solution. Say “There is an opportunity” instead. For example, if you currently do not have all the money that you want to purchase your new house and you say “The problem is I don’t know when I will have the money for a down payment”, say this instead: “There is an opportunity for me to experience new streams of income so I can put the full down payment on my new home.” When you look for the opportunity and not the problem, you will find the opportunity. What you focus on you will find more of. Do you want more problems or more opportunities? The choice is yours!
“I have to . . .” to “I get to”
My amazing friend, co-author of two upcoming books, and the co-host of the Goddess Weekend, Rebecca is so brilliant in how she helps her therapy clients. She reminds them that when you say “I have to clean my house. I have to rake my leaves. I have to pick up my kids from school” it carries a very different energy then if you say “I get to clean my house. I get to rake my leaves that are in my backyard. I get to pick up my amazing kids.” When you change the words from “I have to” to “I get to” it changes the energy from being something that is done out of drudgery to something that is a privilege to do. You are blessed because you have a house you get to clean. You are blessed because you have a child in your life that is healthy and able to go to school and learn. The small changes in the words you choose can literally change the way you feel and vibrate and therefore change your attraction.
Don’t, Not, No
Words like “Don’t”, “Not” and “No” are an indication that you are focused on what you do not want. When you catch yourself saying those three words ask yourself these three empowering questions:
What do I want?
Why do I want it?
What feeling do I expect to have when I receive it?
Practice using different words and see if it makes a difference in the way you FEEEEEEEL. Small little changes can make the BIGEST difference.
