I heard each of these sentences in the last couple of days. I had trouble hearing these statements and not getting in a discussion with each mutterer.
What power our words in Idaho Falls have is often completely missed. Our bodies are largely controlled by our subconscious minds. Our subconscious minds have no reason, no ability to discern right or wrong. They hear these negative statements and then work to support them. The direction we go with our statements is unbelievably powerful in terms of how our lives go. Whether we make positive statements or negative statements we are directing our bodies and our lives in those directions.
What choice do we have when we walk out of the house in the morning and are greeted by rain? We can say to ourselves, "I hate rainy days". Or we can say to ourselves, "What a wonderful change, look, it's raining today". No matter how we react, it is still going to rain. However, how we react and simply the choice of words we choose to tell ourselves, can greatly determine how our day goes. How our body responds and how our mind works that day.
I had friends complain of not having enough money. This mindset puts us in a state of want, a state of deprivation and need. We will never have enough when we are in this state of mind.
Conversely, I had friends that gave money to charities, gave money to homeless people, gave to their relatives. These friends had a mindset of abundance and humbleness. With this mindset there is no deprivation and there is seldom need.
Interestingly, the second group of friends had no more money or resources than the first group. Yet which group of friends is healthier, trimmer, quicker to laugh and more fun to be around?
Our words carry such power in our own lives. Of course, the words we hear in our work every day carry great power. When we hear a client state, "no matter what I do, I can't lose weight" we know this person needs help with their internal messages. This client will take much different coaching and supervision than a person that comes in and says, "I'm so ready for this, I can't wait to see how I change".
Be Blessed and live in abundance.
