Change your environment by choosing your words

For last week’s blog post, I wrote that “We live in a vibrational universe.” I received a number of comments from people who “resonated” with this post and some who wanted to know a bit more about how this shows up in everyday life.

Did you know that words carry their own vibrational frequencies?

The words and phrases you use carry their own intonations and vibrations, allowing you the choice to either uplift or weaken your environment.

Here are some examples of phrases some people say that carry lower vibrational frequencies:

  • “Life is a struggle.”
  • “It’s too good to be true.”
  • “I can never catch a break.”

If you say these phrases out loud, you might notice how “heavy” you start to feel. These expressions emit a gravitational force that weighs you down.

However, see how you feel with these phrases that carry higher vibrational frequencies:

  • “I am grateful for all the good in my life.”
  • “Life is full of possibilities.”
  • “Wonderful opportunities come my way.”

When you say these words out loud, you might find yourself lifted up and pulled into a more expansive way of being.

If you’re up to it, you can explore and “tune up” your vibrations with your coaching assignment for this week. You can choose one of the exercises below:

  1. Start and end your day by saying something to yourself that raises your vibrational frequency.
    Here’s an example. Wake up in the morning and proclaim that this is going to be your best day yet. End the day by acknowledging one person, thing or situation that you’re grateful for. By having something in the morning and in the evening, you create a sacred container for the day.
  2. Don’t complain for a whole week.
    See if you can refrain from saying something negative about someone or a situation. And, if you can, stop yourself from carrying negative thoughts when they arise. This doesn’t mean you allow unhelpful people or destructive situations in your life. There’s a difference between complaining and being constructively critical. Being critical attempts to move a situation forward, while complaining focuses on negativity.

If you’re feeling especially ambitious, you can try both exercises for the whole week!

At the heart of today’s post is this spiritual lesson:

Your words are creative and powerful. Choose them with kindness and care.

In the end, not only do your words affect how you feel, but they also impact your surrounding environment and the people around you.

What type of atmosphere do you want to carry around with you? How do you want people to know you and remember you? What footprints do you want to leave behind in the world?

To assist you with your journey this week, here are my prayerful words for you:

May Life vibrate for you with a frequency of harmony, joy and love, and attract people, experiences and situations that bring you to greater heights of being.

Abundant Blessings and Namaste.
