Words – Your Power

What we speak is very well connected to what we think and what we do. Our mouth, mind & body are very well connected. By changing the words we use we can very well change our act and/or our thoughts. The same is true for our thoughts and actions. Words are the programs we use to run our mind and body. Hence it is very important to use the correct and positive words and equally important to avoid negative words. This posting aims to throw some light on the power of words and lets you know how you can change/improve your life situation by using correct words.

            The human brain, that incredibly powerful personal computer control center that each of us has, is    capable of doing for you anything reasonable that you’d like it to do. But you have to know how to treat it. If you treat it just right, and carefully give it the right directions, it will do the right thing-it will work for you in the right way. But if you give your mental computer the wrong directions it will act on those wrong directions; it will continue to respond to the negative programming that you and the rest of the world have been giving it without even being aware of it.
We communicate through:
               – body language
               – tonality/attitude
               – words.
        Words used, shapes the way you think, you act. Words are the dresses of your thoughts.
        The body posture, the way you think, the way you act are all connected to the way you ‘say’ the words you use. It is not what you say but how you say forms the impression.
How people evaluate you & vice-versa:
            •Non-verbal, actions, body language, postures, gestures(before you open your mouth.)
            •Once you open your mouth:
                    – Tonality: it reveals your attitude.
                    – Specific word choice.
            •We all size(evaluate) each other up. It is human nature.
Every phrase you use ….
   •Shapes your image.
           •Guides co-operation.
           •Programs your brain.
          Language of success: use these words as frequently as possible.
           •Positively: positively I am going to improve my financial situation.
           •Absolutely: I am absolutely confident about my preparation for exams.
           •Guaranteed: I am guaranteed to improve my relationship.
           •Certainly: Certainly I am the best.
           •Obviously: Obviously I have  great sense of humour.
           •Definitely: Definitely I can reach my goal.
Words to avoid:
  • But- negates any words that are stated before it. For example if you say, ” you communicate       well, but your tonality needs to improve”. Instead you can say, ” you communicate well and certainly you can work on your tonality.”
  •   Try – presupposes failure.
  •   If – presupposes that you may not.
  •   Might – it does nothing definite. It leaves options for your listener.
  •   Would have- past tense that draws attention to things that didn’t act.
  •   Should have- past tense that draws attention to things that didn’t act. It implies guilt.
  •   Could have- past tense that draws attention to things that didn’t act. Person tries to take credit as if it did   happen.
  •   Can’t/Don’t- These words force the listener to focus on exactly what don’t they want. This is a classic mistake that parents and coaches make.

         Every word contains the essence of a particular life experience or desired result. “Switchwords” are one word affirmations. Using them is like turning on an electric lamp with a switch. The desired result invariably appears. They can be used in a variety of creative ways to positively shape our reality. Declare, chant, affirm, sing, say them just once, or repeat them mantra style several times and watch how effortlessly reality is shaped by your intentions.

The essence of a switchword feels like a laser focusing our thought on the desired energy. These switchwords were discovered by James T. Mangan in 1963 (and exposed in his book, The Secret of Perfect Living) and have been proven in the lives of many people. They offer a real means to mastering our health and our happiness.
Here are a few examples of these main switchwords and their creative influence:
  • To find a lost item: OBTAIN.
  • To solve a problem: OBTAIN
  • To stay young: LEARN
  • To wipe out a negative thought: CANCEL
  • To dispel fear: BLUFF
  • To regain energy: MOVE
  • To improve interpersonal relationships: SWEET and WITH
  • To be healthy: BE
  • To beat the blues: UP
  • To stick to a resolution: DONE
  • To stop regrets: THANKS
  • The Master Switchword, the one which activates the whole of our mental machinery is the word TOGETHER.
  • To switch your request over to your subconscious, you now only need to use the Master word “TOGETHER” before the appropriate switchword. For example, the person who wishes to find a lost item may repeat several times: “Together-Obtain”.

Use correct words and live a ever lasting happy life!
