Grand rising, dear Alchemist:
The power of words is often overlooked in our society. Sure, we have sayings like: the pen is mightier than the sword, but it feels like something no one really takes the time to examine at an energetic level. It's not simply that words can help shape the world through their effect on those who hear them, but also how it changes the individual doing the speaking. The words themselves carry with them a code that reprograms reality at the most fundamental level. This phenomenon is most effective within the body, where the words reverberate through every cell as they are spoken.
A common magical teaching is the phrase: abracadabra, which translates to I create as I speak. The ancients understood the power of words very well, which is why prayer and chanting are so prominent in all religions.
Even modern science is starting to get a grasp on the idea of vibrations and how they travel through speech. Just look at the work done by Dr. Masaru Emoto on water molecules being frozen with different words labeled on them. The water that was labeled with an "I love you" froze into beautiful patterns, while the water labeled with insults froze in a chaotic manner. Considering the fact that our bodies are mostly water, we should really be watching what we say to ourselves.
Imagine what happens after years of negative self-talk, how it can distort our bodies, and our reality in such a profound way.
Now imagine what would happen after years of saying good things about ourselves. We are so wary of what we put into our body, yet we seem to have no problem echoing a negative mantra through our being on a daily basis.
Just saying the words "I love you" to ourselves at the start of each day can heal our mind and body better than any medicine could.
Remember Alchemist, your words are powerful, so utter them wisely.
With love and sincerity,
The Alchemy by LA Council
