Words to live by and the energy they carry
Speaking of energy we bring forward as we interact with the world, our words often represent our best ambassadors especially in this digital age where thousands of messages are fired off instantly without meaningful intention. I thought it was perfect that today’s DailyOM arrived in my inbox discussing this very topic so I wanted to share their wisdom with you here.

The Music of Language
Words Are Energy
Some of us know this instinctively, while others come to this understanding slowly. Most of us, though, speak without thinking at least some of the time, blurting out our feelings and thoughts without much regard for the words we choose to express them. When we remind ourselves that our words have an impact on the world at the level of energy, we may find within ourselves the desire to be more aware of our use of language.
A fun way to increase our sensitivity to the power of words is to simply make a list of our favorite words and notice the energy they contain. We can write them down and post them where we can see them, or we can speak them aloud, feeling them reverberate in our bodies and in the air around us. This is like learning to consciously play an instrument that we have been playing unconsciously for most of our lives, and the effect can be startling and delightful. As we grow more comfortable and confident playing the instrument of language, we will begin to compose beautiful messages, creating positive energy every time we write or speak.
