Words matter … whether you realize it or not! Are you intentional about the words you choose to use? If not, you might want to check yourself after watching my brief video.
Everything in your life is based on relationships … yes, your relationship with others, but more importantly, your relationship with YOURSELF. Your inner, subconscious dialogue shapes who you are being in your relationship AND it shapes your reality.
Neuroscience has made huge leaps and bounds in telling us more about who we are. Scientifically, our minds can’t distinguish between what is real and what is imagined. How amazing is that? Basically, if your mind believes what you tell it, it will make it your reality. This is one of the reasons why professional athletes will visualize their movements before a competition over and over again … in an attempt to lock in that muscle memory and make their mind believe it is true. And if our mind believes our inner thoughts … and those thoughts are negative, self-limiting beliefs, it will flood our bodies with depressive chemicals … and make it true. Conversely, if our mind believes positive thoughts about ourselves, it will flood our body with feel-good chemicals, like dopamine and serotonin. Meditation re-wires the neural pathways of your brain. So, our subconscious is immensely powerful. And there is a huge opportunity to bring those subconscious thoughts into the conscious mind and create powerful intentions for your life.
In this video, I use several examples, the first being the word “should.” That word … should … is a judgement. It actually comes from our subconscious inner critic who judges others and judges ourselves. The energy of the word “should” is incredibly pressure-laden. So, use the word “want” instead. What’s the energy of THAT in comparison? You have an opportunity to change your world … simply by being intentional about words that contain positive energy. Watch my video … and try it out! You will be amazed at the positive change that will start coming your way!
