Dis-empowering Language

Choose Your Language Wisely

Do you find yourself thinking or speaking things such as:

  • you (they) made me
  • I (you, they)should
  • If only
  • Life is a struggle
  • I had no choice but to…
  • They…
  • Always, never, must
  • Need to, have to, need you to…

And so many more phrases like these?

Many of you use this language without a thought to the etymology (root origins) of these words. Your subconscious mind responds to your language and believes everything you say. You (your conscious mind) are the boss and you are giving direction.

Your language creates both energy and images within your body and mind. Remember a time when you were told that you were less than, unworthy? Notice that your body reacts immediately once your mind realizes your self-esteem, your worth, has been attacked. These words seep into your subconscious and create your reality. Your thoughts become words, your words become action, your action creates your results. Your success or failure, happiness or sadness, abundance or scarcity is all rooted in your image of you and the world you live in.

Oddly enough, dis-empowering language is also a mechanism your mind uses to keep you safe, help you feel superior, or place distance between you and an unwanted event. You create a little cycle where your negative thoughts are fueled by the perceived need to protect you and thus creating the illusion that this “wall” of negativity is needed. It is a way for you not to take responsibility for the choices in your life, the circumstances you are living in, and the results you currently have.

It’s time to exercise free will and make different choices. Start noticing the language you are using and the feeling of victimization, blame, or frustration that is coming from these thoughts. Take just one example and switch it up:

  • I made this happen by…
  • I will…
  • Because this happened, I will
  • Life’s challenges have taught me to…
  • I made this choice based on…
  • This happened when they… so I choose to…
  • There have been times when…
  • I choose to…
  • I take responsibility and will…

Notice that when you start to acknowledge that you are in control, through free will, you now choose how you perceive your life. You make the decision to change your life, step into the world of responsibility, and take action that you can control. You choose how you want to be right now and transform your perspective.

I invite you to discover how you can show up, authentic in your ability to choose, and responsible for your energy and your results through the choice of your language. Engage in conscious living; take time to decide to empower your thoughts and words and define your own actions now.

If not now, when?

Make conscious choices for conscious living now.
