Each word we say or THINK (yup, think!!!) has power. It has the power to give life to new ideas, new mindsets, new opportunities or it has the power to discourage, hurt and even plant lies in our mind.
I have come across the term “Conscious Language” through a video I watched. What stood out to me is how a small shift in the words we use can create mindset shifts and that’s powerful. Our brain will believe ANYTHING we tell it, so why not tell it things we want to see in our lives?
First step is to start paying attention to the words or phrases you say without even thinking about it for example, “Things like this always happened to me”, “I am not good at technology”, “I wish I could afford that”, “I’m afraid we can’t do this” and any negative thoughts directed at ourselves “I am not creative”, “I can never be like…”, “I am ugly” etc.
This is not to say that now you are going to start saying words or phrases that are not true, it’s just the way we phrase them will change. For example replacing “I wish I could afford that” with “Every day I am getting closer and closer to my goal”, or “I am not good at technology” with “Every day I learn more and more about technology”, “I’m so stupid” with “I am learning through my experiences”. Give the brain HOPE! EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS POSSIBLE! But it all starts with our BELIEF that it’s possible and our words play a key role in that!
STEPS TO START CHANGING YOUR WORDING
1 – Begin to notice any phrases that you would like to replace.
2 – Replace them with a positive thought or use Google to find affirmations that can help you replace those thoughts.
3 – Try out the new wording and the new idea and adjust it until it feels right for you!
