For about the last three weeks I have had a three-part conversation rambling around in my mind. At first, the three elements seemed to be unrelated but as I pondered each of them, I realized that they were pointing me in the same direction: spoken language carries within it a powerful energy that can bless or curse. In each moment that power is ours to use. How often do we consider before we speak whether what we are about to say will be an energy of destruction, or one of blessing?
The first message I found myself turning over in my mind is from the Bible, Proverbs 18:21: “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
This verse reminds us that every word that rolls off our tongue has the power to enliven us , as well as the people, things and situations around us, OR it can deplete that life force, even to the point of death. The second part of this verse affirms the Law of Attraction that we will draw to us the consequences of our speaking for good or ill.
The second idea I began to consider in light of this is the old “superstitions” that people in ancient cultures and native tribes used to believe (and therefore experienced) about blessings and curses. People in earlier ages truly believed that another person or shaman or enemy could speak so powerfully as to kill them. On the other hand, these same earlier people would seek the blessing of a religious teacher, holy person (even a parent’s blessing would be sought) with the conviction that this benediction would grant them comfort, good fortune and peace.
The third part of this interesting dialogue that developed in my head was the scientific understanding that our DNA contains a structure similar to the letters of an alphabet. It doesn’t matter what language you speak, your DNA will respond to your words, both spoken and mentally thought. Russian linguistic researchers have discovered that our DNA is formulated like a language with syntax, semantics and the rudiments of grammar. It is a communication link between us and the physical world and it responds to our words and thoughts, changing its codes in our body to adapt to the “environment” that we thereby create within and around us. We are also impacted by what others add to our “environment” with their thoughts and words. In other words, our words have the power to code our DNA.
Well — this conversation finally became too big for my brain and so I am writing it down and sharing it with you. This is another piece of our creation work that will net results more quickly as we move into the higher dimensions.
We’ve all heard the saying: “Be careful what you wish for, you may get it.” Never has this been more true. Now is the time of nearly instant manifestation of thoughts and words, so if something appears in front of you that is not to your liking, it’s time to track back a few thoughts and see “what you just ordered.” But I digress (slightly.)
The first two parts of my conversation came from ancient times and speak to the understanding that people had about the power of words and their ability to impact the surrounding environment. The third part of my conversation comes from modern scientific research. Our bodies are considered part of the environment, so consider the impact of the following statements on our physical forms:
“I’m just dying to do that!”
“I love her to death!”
I hate my nose (eyes, thighs . . .whatever.)
“I”m such an idot!”
Yes, BUT — those are just “sayings;” I was only kidding; I didn’t really mean it; It’s just an expression.
Perhaps — EXCEPT that our DNA (and the Universe) does not differentiate between kidding and not kidding — everything that comes through our mind or out of our mouth is given equal consideration. The energy of our thoughts and words does not “die.” It continues on, omni-directionally, eternally, forever. That’s a lot of directions and too much time to keep track of. “. . .and those who love it will eat its fruits.” Somewhere, sometime, in some reality or dimension, our thoughts and words will bear fruit, either bitter or sweet. And remember — it always comes back to us, its creator.
After pondering these ideas, I have some questions to ask.
How might we be creating and/or maintaining illnesses in our bodies with our thoughts and words?
What impact is watching the nightly news on TV having on my body? What about the commercials?
Is our defense of “Free Speech” supporting Freedom of Different Perspectives or are we unconsciously supporting Hate Speech and Violent Speech, thinking that there is no harm in just expressing words?
When we lash out with angry words at a loved one or a co-worker, what is happening in the cells of their bodies? In the cells of OUR bodies?
I feel that it’s time to look at language as a tool of sacredness. We have become so casual about what we say that most of the time, we don’t even realize that we are speaking words and ideas that we would not actually want to happen, were we to take them seriously, as our cells do.
The power of life and death is in the tongue. DNA is a language. Are our words (to ourselves or others) a curse or a blessing? Let’s consider this.
