Word Energy

Here’s a snippet that you may want to think about.

When we speak or write, we use the vehicles of words to carry meaning, as well as energy, from ourselves to another person or group of people. We may be speaking to our baby, our boss, or to an audience of 500 people. We may be writing a love letter, a work-related memo, or an entry in our own diary. Whatever the case, each word we speak or write has a life of its own, a vibratory signature that creates waves in the same way that a note of music creates waves. And like musical notes, our words live in communities of other words and change in relation to the words that surround them. When we are conscious of the energy behind our words, we become capable of making beautiful music in the world. If we are unconscious of the power of words, we run the risk of creating a noisy disturbance. Some of us know this instinctively, while others come to this understanding slowly. Most of us, though, speak without thinking at least some of the time, blurting out our feelings and thoughts without much regard for the words we choose to express them. When we remind ourselves that our words have an impact on the world at the level of energy, we may find within ourselves the desire to be more aware of our use of language. A fun way to increase our sensitivity to the power of words is to simply make a list of our favourite words and notice the energy they contain. We can write them down and post them where we can see them, or we can speak them aloud, feeling them reverberate in our bodies and in the air around us. This is like learning to consciously play an instrument that we have been playing unconsciously for most of our lives, and the effect can be startling and delightful. As we grow more comfortable and confident playing the instrument of language, we will begin to compose beautiful messages, creating positive energy every time we write or speak

    Hope you had an enjoyable birthday celebration. I agree, however coming from the industrial north,I tend to call a spade a spade! No matter how you bury an insult in flowery prose – it remains an insult. Sadly I am at the stage where, when writing, although I know a word exists to illustrate the ‘correct note’ – it has slipped from my memory !!

    Good Afternoon Kate, I wonder if you were to list three of your favourite words what would they be? I like synergy because it suggests the combination of two or more dynamics. Tranquility for its calm and open state of existance and laughter because it is the most common language on the planet.

    As writers we do indeed become musicians of language and hear in presents the problem, what if your reader is tone deaf and percieves message differantly? Is it the writer at fault for not being more explicit or is it down to the mindset of the reader? Wishing you a good week Kate.

    Beware Weasel words…. words that suck the life out of the words next to them. Just like a Weasel sucks and leaves the shell .

    An interesting concept weasel words, used in advertising to detract from the product and create impetus to buy into the need. Language and gender also play an important part in the comprehension of meaning. Women often perceive things in a different light to their counterparts don’t you think?

    Good Morning to all and Good morning Laird……this last comment of yours brought a good laugh to the start of my day. Hope you are all keeping well. Have fun and have a nice day.

    This is a very interesting concept and one that is also true, one can generate a masterpiece with words or an absolute nightmare, it is all in the selective processes and by exploring these routes to the very depths of one’s own creativity the pieces are placed together, much like a jigsaw puzzle to be solved but all in a very exciting way too… This is an attention-grabbing piece Kate, and very nicely written… Androgoth Xx
