Watch your words

Posted by on Apr 19, 2011

Do you ever watch the words in your mind, or coming out of your mouth? I encourage everyone to cultivate the seed of language awareness. Can you clean up your language or improve your vocabulary? Are you articulate? What is the nature of your thinking? Can you catch yourself in the act? So much of what circulates in our minds is junk- negative self talk. Just observe, and then shift the wording. Do you “should” yourself or say negative comments. Be at least as kind to yourself as to others (assuming you are not a malicious person.)

A few years ago, a friend gave me a piece of pizza which she had made that had raw goat’s cheese on it. I like feta, but hate stinky barnyard smelly goat cheese. I spat the pizza out immediately and heard my guides saying, “Wow, you sure got rid of that food quickly. Why don’t you monitor your stinky thoughts like that?” I laughed outloud and still vividly recall that incident.

I wholeheartedly agree with the message I received… it all begins with the words.
