A Word Person

I am a word person. I write, but also I listen to every word that is spoken to me. I take them all to heart. I realize now that earlier in my life I often spoke before I thought deeply about my words.

Words can stab like a sword. Abusive words remain in your thoughts, even if subconscious, to sting you again and again.

Try today to think before you spontaneously blurt out any words. If need be, and this will help your day anyway, take a breath. Breathing calms you and empowers you because you have time to use your intellect instead of your emotions!

Just for today try to speak words that are positive; even benign words will be better than words of hatred and anger….these words only inflame YOUR fire. They resolve little.

Challenge yourself for just one day and “feel” the difference from within yourself! Your thoughtful words can change YOUR day – as well as the day of others.

If you can find a kind word, be honest about something, and share it. We always hear the negative. Make a difference in your own sphere of living and perhaps, it will become a habit – a good one!

Create a brilliant day with your words!

Words / Negativity / Stress/ Change/ and Crisis Management

When your life is spilling out of control on the highway to stress hell, keep these important “management words” in mind, and refer to them as a secret empowerment to aid you.

Truth does not waiver:  When you speak you are prophesizing what happens next!

Words come to life.  If you are negative there is a ninety-nine percent chance that you will get negativity back and have a less than perfect settlement of the “challenge” you face.

I am angry

I don’t know how I will get through this

I can’t forget the past

I won’t ever get out of this mess

These are self-fulfilling prophecies.  As sure as these words come out of your mouth, they have been engaged in the cycle of coming to life – in your life!

“The relation that exists between the mind and body is very intimate. When one is affected, the other sympathizes. The condition of the mind affects the health to a far greater degree than many realize. Many of the diseases from which men suffer are the result of mental depression. Grief, anxiety, discontent, remorse, guilt, distrust, all tend to break down the life forces and to invite decay and death….

Courage, hope, faith, sympathy, and love, promote health and prolong life. A contented mind, a cheerful spirit, is health to the body and strength to the soul.”

Ellen G. White

1827-1915

These words were written many, many years ago, but they are the absolute truth, and truth NEVER waivers.

If you practice these three simple techniques, you will find your life will actually improve in many ways.  Stress management is up to you though – no matter how you “say” you want to change, YOU are the only one that can instigate change….and you are the only one who can practice, therein creating new brain cell impressions and new feelings about a stressful scenario.

1.  The number one management technique is using your oxygen in a crisis situation.  Take a few breaths to get the oxygen you need.  It will also give you a few moments to think about your coming response.

2.  Drop the negative words and EVEN IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IT works such miracle changes, incorporate positive words.  If you are thinking “impossible” – don’t!  Think instead, “I can do this.”  Words CAN empower you.

3.  Speak slowly and calmly.  Never let anyone or any challenge turn you into a nasty, mouthy, and dull witted person!  Don’t let anything change your life like that without your permission!

4.  Never forget (particularly with women) – WORDS can pierce a person’s heart with the same intensity and pain that a sharp sword would deliver.  Most physical pain is healed with time, but ill spoken and cruel words can pierce a person’s heart over and over again, and sometimes, stay with a person for his or her life.

(If you are faced with challenge after challenge in the stress arena, it may be time to seek outside help such as counseling, classes,  various forms of yoga, meditation classes, CD relaxation tapes, or perhaps a church group.  You have one mind and you don’t want to loose it to stress!)

Your Words

Words come to life

“I am angry.”

“I don’t know how I will get through this.”

“I can’t forget the past.”

“I won’t ever get out of this mess.”

These are self-fulfilling prophecies.  As sure as these words come out of your mouth, they are actively engaged in the cycle of coming to life – in your life!  These words are stressful words that give in to almost a weakness of spirit.

Life isn’t always fair, but it can still be good.  There are enough “outside stresses” to sometimes overwhelm your mind.  Don’t make the mistake of creating added negative feelings and stress by letting negative words dominate your reaction to life.

The next time you find yourself frustrated and feeling defeated by life’s circumstances, STOP!  Before you speak do this: Take in a mindful plug of oxygen slowly.  Remember this is going to calm you don’t and sharpen your intellect.  As you exhale think of all the burdensome negativity flying away from you.  Do it again.

For these few seconds of using one of the best stress management techniques you have readily available, you can truly change your life.  Your reactions and your words will improve.  You will gain control of your emotions and use your wits instead of just reacting.  Get in the habit and it will come naturally at some point in the near future.

Put new words into action that can modify a terrible scenario to one of lesser consequence for all parties involved.  Think:

“I am calmer.”

“I will get though this scenario with ease.”

“I learn from the past but live in the present.”

“I will find a good resolve to any challenge.”

If you need additional training seek it out.  There many classes on breathing, meditation, and relaxation.  Join one.  You will appreciate these techniques as they are available twenty-four seven, and are a true empowerment to mind and body.
