Words are what make up how we describe our lives. They are also powerful determiners of what directions our lives take. If the words we say to ourselves are positive they strongly guide our lives into positive directions. Much of this happens automatically through the direction of our subconscious mind which regulates our lives much like an autopilot on an airplane.
The use of positive words or phrases in the form of positive affirmations have been used for thousands of years as a part of spiritual practices in prayers, mantras, and affirmations to facilitate transformation and realizations. This is testimony to the power of the practice of repeating words as a means of attaining the positive outcomes wanted. Many have found that repeating specific words can help open and integrate a person with their deepest inner connections as well as lead to the positive outcomes desired. You may find yourself drawn to choose certain words or phrases more than others perhaps due to prior training and associations. I suggest you try several until you find those that have the most meaning and effect for you.
7 Suggestions for Using Positive Words
- 1. Use only one or two phrases of positive words in any given session.
- 2. Repeat the positive word or phrase out loud and few times and then begin repeating it silently.
- 3. Even though you are repeating the positive words silently you will find it helpful to move your lips.
- 4. This process is often found to be most effective when done in the middle of the night or early in the morning.
- 5. There are often shifts or breakthroughs at 20 minutes, 40 minutes and 60 minutes.
- 6. While repeating the positive words intend to connect more and more deeply with the intention behind the words.
- 7. Repeat it silently to yourself and be aware that the embodiment of the words lives within your heart. This helps to incorporate the creative power of positive feelings with your words. Listen and attune to the qualities that emerge within you as you repeat the positive words.
A Concluding Word on Positive Words
Of course there are thousands of positive word phrases to choose from and you will want to choose ones that are based on your specific needs and background.
After you repeat the positive words for the designated time and you have decided to stop, remain in a peaceful still state or bring an inquiry to mind. Speak into the stillness and ask for clarification or elaboration on the subject of your positive word practice. Such questions as, “Is there anything important for me to know at this time?” Then be receptive to see or hear what arises. Periodically ask, “Is there anything else I need to know,” or “tell me more.” Allow the insights to bubble to the surface. They may come as flashes or glimpses. Sometimes they come as single words, sometimes as feelings, and at other times deeper insights unfold. Use whatever arises as springboards to formulate more positive words for your next session.
