In this episode, I share why you need to pay attention to what you’re saying to yourself.
If you had a tape recorder in your mind and at the end of the day you played it back to yourself, what are the messages you would hear?
Are they positive, high frequency messages? Are they negative, low frequency messages?
What You Tell Yourself Matters
Click play below to watch this week’s episode and discover why it’s so vital to pay attention to the words you say and thoughts you think.
A study by Dr. Emoto shows that what we tell ourselves matters!
Dr. Emoto had multiple vials of water. Each vial was exposed to different types of words, music, prayers, etc. Some were exposed to high frequency words like, “I love you,” “thank you,” I’m grateful for you” or high frequency music, like Bach or Beethoven. Some vials of water were exposed to low frequency words like, “I hate you,” “You’re ugly,” “You never do anything right.” or low frequency music. Then he froze the water and looked at it under a microscope, and what he discovered was that words, thoughts, prayers, music, etc have an impact on the molecular structure of water.
When the water was exposed to high frequency words – kind, loving words – the water formed symmetrical, crystalline structures. They were beautiful. When the water was exposed to low frequency energy – angry, shaming words, the water structure was fragmented and chaotic.
What does this have to do with you?
Over 60% of your body is made up of water. Over 60% of the planet is made up of water. So, the frequency of your energy matters! What you tell yourself matters! What you listen to matters!
If I listened to your tape recorder, my guess is that many of the messages would be critical. We are often our own worst critic.
Do you say negative things to yourself like, “I’m not good enough,” or I’m not smart enough,” or “I’m not pretty enough?”
Your thoughts and words matter… they literally impact your internal being.
It is human nature to be critical of ourselves, compare ourselves and judge ourselves. One way to start working with these limiting thoughts and beliefs is to make the unfamiliar familiar.
You do this by consistently and repetitively feeding yourself with positive, high frequency words and images.
Take out a piece of paper or your journal and draw a line down the middle. On the left side, write down a limiting thoughts or belief. Then, on the right side, write down an empowering version of that limiting thought or belief. Do this with as many as you can think of.
There is one trick to this. It is challenging to move from a limiting belief to the complete opposite of that belief.
So, for example, it may feel challenging to go from “I’m not beautiful” to “I am beautiful.”
To actually have these beliefs begin to shift, the empowering thought have to FEEL real and empowering. It has to resonate. Otherwise, there is just resistance and the thought doesn’t shift. So, maybe start with the empowering thought as, “My eyes are beautiful.”
Say these frequently and put them in places you can see them – on your bathroom mirror, in your car and/or on your kitchen cabinet.
If you still have some doubts that what you tell your mind, your mind believes, then this may help.
I want you to imagine that you’re holding half of a freshly cut, juicy lemon. Imagine smelling the lemon. Imagine the acidic smell of the lemon going into your nostrils, into your core and notice what happens in your body. Now imagine slowly putting the lemon into your mouth and taking a bite out of that lemon, so the juice sprays into your mouth. You take another bite, chewing on the flesh of the lemon. Notice the feeling in your jaw, in your mouth.
What did you notice?
Did your saliva gland start working? Did you get a tingling or biting sensation in your jaw from the thought of the sour juice spraying into your mouth?
That was just a thought. You weren’t actually eating the lemon. You were just telling your mind that you were eating the lemon and notice all of the ways your body responded to that thought.
What you tell your mind, your mind believes.
This is the power of the mind, as well as the power of your words and the power of your thoughts.
For the next week, I invite you to write down your limiting thoughts and beliefs and rewrite them into empowering thoughts and beliefs that you actually have the ability to take in and feel!! That’s so important! It MUST resonate in your body when you say it! And then post them in places you will see them and say them frequently.
Share this people you know. Have your entire family do it together! It’s amazing how the energy can shift in the entire home when everyone does this together. I’ve even seen individuals have others in their work environment do it, and it changes the energy in the entire office.
Have fun with it!
