The Power Of Your Spoken Word

Anyone who has ever stuck their proverbial foot in their mouth and said something they regretted later, doing irreparable damage to a friendship, relationship or saw their promotion going right out the door, experienced a small example of the powerful energy the spoken word has. The reality of words that when we speak from a place that is not from the heart, we can NEVER take back, and they hang in the air surrounding the damage they did.

Each word we speak has a life of its own, a vibratory signature that creates waves into the great expanse of the universe. When we speak or write, we use this vehicle to carry meaning, as well as energy, from ourselves to another person or group of people. Our words spoken and written take on a life of their own just by the tone they are used in. When we are conscious of the energy behind our words, we become capable of creating beautiful relationships. If we are unconscious of the power of our words, we run the risk of creating an energetic disturbance that can escalate into unwanted results.

“Language shapes our behavior and each word we use is imbued with multitudes of personal meaning. The right words spoken in the right way can bring us love, money and respect, while the wrong words—or even the right words spoken in the wrong way — can lead to a country to war. We must carefully orchestrate our speech if we want to achieve our goals and bring our dreams to fruition. — Dr. Andrew Newberg, Words Can Change Your Brain”

With such a powerful resource at our disposal and the power that lies within them, we can get an idea of how our words within any relationship, whether it be work, romantic, friends or family can be altered, uplifted or destroyed by our choice of words dealing with any situation. Our brains work at high speeds, so has a tendency of using the same words repeatedly in expressing ourselves. Many times, we use shortcuts, but these shortcuts often shortchange us and who we are communicating with emotionally.

Words and emotions are interwoven together seamlessly. Out of the 3,000 words we have for emotions, most people feel only about five or six good feelings with the bad feelings usually taking center stage. We first tend to get happy and excited, then angry, frustrated, sad, or even depressed. Taking a happy situation and within just a few ill-chosen words, turn those emotions into something that does not feel good. The problem is that we most often do not choose our words consciously to describe our emotions, having habitual words that we unconsciously attach to them. The challenge of course, is the words we attach to our experience become our experience. Words have a biochemical effect on the body. The minute you use a word like “devastated” you’re going to produce a very different biochemical effect than if you say, “I’m a bit disappointed.” Bottom line, the less drama you keep out of your vocabulary in a relationship, the better the communication.

Change your words, change your life. It is very feasible that our words we attach to an experience, actually become our experience, called your reality. Your words also have a biochemical effect on your brain, which if not recognized, allows our 4-year-old ego to gain control over the conversation. Then we are all in trouble. It is a small but important shift of vocabulary to describe our emotions within us that can be a life transforming experience. For example: Instead of saying: “you really pissed me off!” to “I am a little angry at you because of such and such.” YOU own the statement, not push the responsibility of defending themselves from the beginning of the conversation.

Susan Z’s Verdict

Intellectually, it just sounds like similar interpretations but if you test it in your own life experience, you’ll see the difference. Using more kinder definitions of your emotions than aggressive ones. What would your life be like if you took all your negative vocabulary and emotions and lower their intensity? More fulfilling, calmer, more self-satisfying and filled with cooperation instead of adversity.
