After Christmas thoughts on Consciousness

Hello friends and readers this morning after Christmas Day, I thought it might be a fun exercise to say a few words and put this out onto a blog article to answer the question of what the mind-body, soul, and spirit connection is a question that came up recently and I thought I would take a moment to meditate on those words mind, body, spirit, soul, and connection and see what if any thoughts drop in about that in my rational academic mind, the topic of mind body spirit soul connection brings me to consciousness. Because consciousness is an overarching word term that we can use to describe how all of these pieces fit together within us.

Consciousness is, as we know, not something that resides in one place within us as human beings, but it can be the consciousness most notably and closely associated with our brain and our thinking. How we come to have the thoughts we have and what we consider to be real about us. That our consciousness has learned is something that can reside throughout our body. So we have consciousness of thought, yes, but the cells of our body are conscious.

So we have consciousness throughout our bodies. There’s also the consciousness of mind. There’s a consciousness of the body because of the consciousness that envelops and resides within each cell 50 to 70 trillion cells of the body and then I believe there’s a consciousness of spirit too because the Spirit will continue to live on it. Some say consciousness exists apart from the body, but can also come into the body and envelop and embrace and live within and breathe within the body. And then the soul which I believe from what my husband has taught me, dear ‘love of my life’ loving husband. He has taught me that our soul is in our blood. This makes so much sense to me because we carry our ancestors with us in our blood, you know, their DNA.

You know, scientifically we know these things right? From the lineage from whom we’ve come, from whom this body has come that we reside in. That is our soul. So the soul of our ancestors is quite literally in our blood in our DNA and in the chemistry of the blood. And this is also a reason why we inherit certain diseases if you will. Because, you know, our mother, our father had certain tendencies and things sometimes skip a generation or things sometimes only come with this on the male side of the family or the female side of the family. You know, certain traits, characteristics, or ills. So, someone in your history your parent or grandparent had heart issues. You may have a tendency toward heart issues, but perhaps your job with your soul is to upon knowing such do whatever you can to prevent those kinds of issues in your body so that your soul doesn’t really experience that. But that’s just one brief example.

This idea of mind, body, soul, and spirit Connections is a matter of consciousness. It’s a matter of how conscious we are of this whole soup or petri dish that we are. And I believe this is also key to determining or discerning or deciphering why we get certain sensations in the body. I’m not talking about just a stomach ache or something. You know, I’m [indistinguishable]. I’m talking now more about how we can feel spiritually inclined to believe certain things or come to certain understandings or have certain knowings because we feel certain things in the body. This could be our we sense love, how we feel love, how we feel when we’re so full of love, our hearts going to just expand and burst, or, for me and my particular situation or instance,

I feel what I’ve talked about many times and written about this sensation in my body, mostly in my thighs, which I call GodBumps. And you may remember that I did an interview with Davey Pfaffle about GodBumps. He and his wife wrote the book, GodBumps. Here’s the link to that interview:

So the GodBumps sensation is similar to goosebumps, but it’s more internal. It’s something that it doesn’t necessarily show up as God bumps on the external flesh of my body, but within my body, I feel it. It’s like a bubbling effervescence thing, my word for how I feel the energy in my body. So it’s sort of tingly. It’s sort of goosebumpy. But it’s inside. It’s really like the best way I can explain it is when you drink a soda and you feel the bubbles on your tongue. That’s what I feel but it’s inside.

Now recently, I’ve come to learn through my Reiki classes and training, that when I hold dowsing rods, I asked the dowsing rods to show me my yes answer. At the same time, I feel the gut bumps in my thighs and all through my legs. I mean, it’ll just that sensation I’ll go all the way to my feet and swirl around and come right back up. The longer I sit with that yes answer. When I asked the dowsing rods to show me a knowing answer, I felt from my stomach all the way up. I felt God’s bumps was was unusual. And when that happened, I knew that I was a human dowsing rod. This doesn’t just work, you know willy nilly at any time of the day. But I really have to be in a serious question asking almost meditative thought. I don’t have to be meditating to ask the questions. But I just need to be present. I guess we could say sitting with the question. I have to make sure my feet are grounded. I have to make sure my legs aren’t crossed. And if I’m holding the dowsing rods, I have to be holding them up correctly and appropriately. And there’s a way to do that.

I had not learned the technique prior to the last couple of months. So whenever I used the dowsing rods before I got hit-or-miss responses, I had to be in a place like Sedona, Arizona where there’s a vortex before the dowsing rods really showed me that they did anything. So I didn’t use them very often because I didn’t really have much experience or belief in what they could show me because again, I hadn’t been drained. But a couple of months ago during my Reiki classes, I did receive that training and bought a new set of rods that were much more straight as an arrow robust copper, full copper, and a good length to not some $5 little cheapy dowsing rods that I’d had prior to that.

So now I have these good dowsing rods and I’m sitting there and I’m asking these yes, no questions. And the answers show up in the rods, but I also feel the answers in my body. So that’s been quite enlightening to me most recently, and then also working with studying the work of Dr. Raymond Moody. He’s written a book called Life after life. And also God is bigger than the Bible. And he’s written many books over the years. He’s an elder gentleman now, but his small team had reached out to me someone from his team and asked if I would be interested in volunteering to write some correspondence replies for him and I jumped at the opportunity I mean, my soul just here we go again to answer the question, coming back around spiraling around full circle to answer the question of what is mind-body, spirit, soul, and Connection.

Well, my whole consciousness was like singing in a chorus. I felt all through my body that I would do this work for free. Even though I felt a tad bit off, I don’t know if I have time. It was one of those decisions that I really didn’t have to think about because I knew that if I need to wake up an hour early every morning, two hours early, whatever it took. I was going to do that first it was going to be like saying thank you soon as my feet hit the floor. use the restroom. Go into meditation. Do the gratitude flow that I teach with integrated spiral and then sit and read and meditate upon and think about my answers to these persons who have written to Dr. Raymond and write up some correspondence.

Of course initially, I’ve just begun this work. So I’m very green about it. And so I just send my will or maybe become the responses to the persons who write Dr. Moody. send those to my team lead if you will. And she will review them and she may delete a sentence or two or Addison’s to that kind of thing. And then she’ll use that to send from the official address because of course I don’t have access to Dr. Moody’s email, system, or email addresses. But this gives me a purpose. This gives me a reason to formulate such kinds of response answers, and then send them back to my team lead. And then, of course, they can go out as they will. Or not, you know, but they have the choice to use them or not, and if they use them if you were to write Dr. Moody and receive an answer from me, it may or may not be 100% my words but it would have the tap the contact signature line of Sheila Murrey on behalf of Dr. Raymond Moody, you know, that kind of thing. I’m not exactly sure even how we’re signing those right now or how they’ll be signed in the future. But it’ll be something to that effect. So you would know if the answer came from me.

The point of this is what I’ve found in this process is that it’s given me a very pointed, very specific, very identified means of connecting my soul desire. The work that I desired to do on my soul desires to do you know, I’ve always known for many, many years now that I’m a writer.

A writer writes, so I write all kinds of things. I write so much that sometimes I write the same thing again, but can pull it in a completely different way because the way I said it many years ago was very different than how I would say it now because of everything I’ve learned. But that’s something that I feel my mind and my body have led me to do to become a writer, but my soul and my spirit they’re wanting to communicate, and they wanted to communicate my whole life but being raised and coming up in a family the way I did very small family as an only child. I didn’t often feel heard in many ways I had my voice squelched either by the bullies at school, or just, I don’t believe I was ever a shy person, but definitely, I’m an empath and an introvert so because when I would put myself out there and then feeling kind of the brunt of that exposure.

In fact, I remember telling my first husband this one when I first met him, and was probably one of the reasons I fell in love early in my life. was because I felt like I didn’t have skin. I felt like I was a very broad person. And so anytime I shared anything with anybody, I could feel the brunt of it being received. And that’s the empath to my nature, you know, but I didn’t know that I didn’t even know what the hell of an empath was.

So, here’s the point. I’m getting to consciousness now. I’m coming full circle back around to the answer here. Is that consciousness, capital see, it envelops all of us it envelops our body. It envelops our minds. It envelops our spirit and our soul. Because we’re always thinking of how we’re being perceived right? And whether we’re being heard, and then beyond that, are we being understood?

There are so many facets to us and ways that we can express ourselves which is why so many people turn to art, you know, so they can just express themselves in their art. Or in their music and they never really have to. They never really have to acknowledge or even perceive how they’re being perceived. So they just do their art they put it out in the world and then you know, let the chips fall where they may, whereas a speaker, a teacher, or rider, we’re always looking for, well, especially the speaker and the teacher, right? Educator is always looking out at their students or at their audience to see how their words are landing. We’re looking for people’s faces, or their eyes to light up for their ears to perk up, you know, that kind of thing. A writer is always looking for interaction, we’re looking for somebody to call us up and mirror back to us how they, how received our words, how, whether they understood them or not, whether they read them or not. And how they landed, they were they hit home, you know. So, we are looking for acknowledgment, not in the way of the ego necessarily where we’re Oh, you’re so wonderful, you know, your words spoke to me like no one else’s have ever, you know, or we become the best selling author, or we have our works published in magazines, that kind of thing. I mean, that’s all nice. And good and warm, fuzzy stuff. But that’s not necessarily what I’m talking about, because that’s getting into the realm of this ego whether that exists or not. But I mean, just from this soul level, and spiritual level of wanting to be acknowledged in a way that proves to us that we’re really here.

Obviously, we’re in a body so we know we’re, doing something here. Even people that feel like they’re soulless, you know, and they don’t feel like they know their soul or spirit identity. Are they questioning if they even have one? They do have one. Everyone has one. If they’re in a human body, and they were and they were born on planet Earth, they may not be in touch with it. They may not interact with it. They may totally reject the idea of having one like the atheist rejecting God. But obviously, if there is a God, that created everything that we see, touch, hear taste smell. Then just because you say there isn’t a God doesn’t mean there isn’t it just you’re not in touch with it. You’re not in touch with all that that is you know, whatever label you want to put on God. But again, that’s a spiral thought, by the way, I’m just been off for a moment.

So again, the very simplistic answer to all of this is consciousness is everywhere in the body and can be everywhere, anywhere, all at once.

Your consciousness makes you who you are. And it continues to grow you and just as I was drifting off to sleep last night, the thought occurred to me of when you’re a baby, and you’re born you your birth into this world, and you’re such a tiny, small package. of a human. What must it be like? To your mind, you really didn’t have any worries, right? You didn’t have many thoughts. It was whether you were hungry, it was probably just all sensation. You’re probably laying there in your little crib or in your mother’s arms and you’re just this bundle of sensations, which is probably why babies cry so much. But then there are other babies who hardly ever cry, right? So we’re each experiencing the world, the external around us so very different. And then we’re processing that internally. And I wonder now if, I wonder if as a baby, what thoughts I had and did those thoughts. I mean, I would think they did. Those thoughts would help me talk to the cells of my body and helped me you know, as I started looking around and started getting older, right? Oh, I want to be tall like Mommy, I want to be tall like Daddy or I want to have long hair like mommy or I want my eyes to look like mommy’s eyes.

Do you know what I mean? Like, did I help? CO create how my body began to look as I grew up, and then when I started meeting other children, you know, and I started going to school and admiring certain teachers and things like that. Did I literally tell the cells of my body what I wanted my body to look like? One of the first stories I remember is about body autonomy. Is my mother not being happy with the size of her breasts? So she always said I hope that you have large breasts like the women on your dad’s side of the family, you know, so it seems kind of silly to say that now but how many women do have an issue with the size of their breasts? I mean, look at the sheer numbers and amounts of money spent on breast augmentation, you know, so, in one way, it seems silly for me to bring that up as a topic here. But in another, it’s so real for millions of women, the feel the size of their breasts, either too small or too large, and I’m sure there’s some number of women that feel that their breasts are too large, but most women go out and spend a lot of money if they have small breasts on getting larger breasts. You know, it seems silly to me because it’s not something that I ever had any thoughts about other than just remembering my mother saying that to me because she said it many times. And, um, but I guess I had average-size breasts, so it just wasn’t something that I ever thought about, you know, I never desired to have my breasts made to be any larger. So I always felt like women who did that are somewhat silly.

I now realize how many women really get caught up in that kind of snare. You know, when they see women on TV and movies on the cover of magazines and so forth that look a certain way they really really, really, like that’s their prime focus is to look a certain way. And well, anyway, so I do have judgments about that, I guess, in that I just feel that’s somewhat silly. Just be happy in the body that you have. I mean, sure, if you can change something with a little nip and tuck, here they are. Why not? Then I look at the extreme cases of Joan Rivers and, and ladies who literally ended up dying over the continual process of the nip and tuck again, everything coming back into balance, the consciousness, mind, body, spirit, and soul when all of this is connecting and talking with each other. It helps us I believe, to reside or keep our being in more of a state of balance.

We’re always balancing. We never like to get that done. But what I’m saying is, if you imagine that yin and yang symbol in 3d breathing, the black, the white, always coming back into balance and balancing like a wave in the ocean. You have, I think, a better chance of living well. Living. Happy, finding joy in your day-to-day, and just being healthy and vibrant and thriving, no. And grow and enjoy.

And on that, I’ll close. Thank you for the opportunity to share this discourse. Many blessings to you in ALL ways

WORDPLAY to Empowerment

Using highly resonating words to empower ourselves and others

Launching the beginning of 2020, WORDPLAY to Empowerment is a new method and play-shop (a fun workshop class) developed by Sheila Murrey, self-help author of Transform Your Life! Inspirational Stories and Expert Advice (2014. Transformation Publishing); The Energy of Receiving (2015. Happiness Publishing); and Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life! (2018. Self.)

The WORDPLAY to Empowerment play-shop class shares a writer’s method specifically designed to ease one into feeling: better, balanced, supported, and stronger—one thought and word at a time. Plus, it can’t hurt!

Impetus for creation

In working alongside entrepreneurs and small business owners on copy and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for their websites, I discovered that a real need exists for wellness providers to become aware and more conscious of the words they speak, and put into their copy, websites, blogs, etc.

I’ve also been doing a lot (for years), to sort of play with words on a vibrational level, as demonstrated in Facebook comments, Tweets, T-shirt designs, blog articles, and more. You may have noticed how I used the word “Wholly” in the title of my recent book, instead of the more straightforward words of “Holy” or “Whole” to play off those words and create more curiosity.

As well, while testing my theories that would become the WordPLAY method, I began winning a LOT of things and new experiences! Read more about that here:

Birthing the creation

Thus, I developed the first workshop to test out my intuitive leaning into all of this. A writer speaks: Words Workshop has been rebranded.

I am thrilled to release this now as, WORDPLAY to Empowerment.

The goals of this engaging play-shop are to help us:

  • Release WORDS that no longer serve us (or our business)
  • Add uplifting, inspiring. and empowering WORDS to our daily vocabulary (and marketing copy)
  • Those looking for new and innovative ways to treat health conditions
  • Raise our consciousness
  • Raise and Connect the consciousness of ALL


Wellness practitioners and business owners, nurses, teachers, and parents. Anyone interested in Energy, Frequency, Vibration, Consciousness, Alternative health, Holism, or natural ways to improve one’s health and mindset.

The workshop that became a Method

The focus of the method is to:

Release the WORDS that no longer serve us, such as, low frequency cuss words, (notice when we use these words – typically when we’re angry, upset, or in pain; we often overuse, unnecessary words, or those said because we think we need to fill empty space.

Playfully identify the words we consistently USE and what our intention is when we speak them. We’ll specifically listen for the tone we use because that carries the frequency (Love = Creation, or Fear = “to destroy” / curse).


Participants are inspired and encouraged to PLAY in this interactive class (where the facilitator will be using a whiteboard and 3×5 index cards).

This will be an empowering exercise in Awareness, by a writer with over 33 years of career experience and two degrees, both in science (aviation business) and art (visual communications).

Uniquely connect

Together, we’ll use unique ways to explore how we can replace the lower vibration words we often use, with higher vibrating and more purposeful words, (which hold our deeper truths), to uplift and empower ourselves and others to raise our consciousness. This work benefits ALL.

Word mining

We’ll mine for energetic words that resonate higher (and actively reach into the ether) to become aware of the empowering CHOICES we have when it comes to improving our lives using authentically powerful words.

Improves speaking

Yes, voice matters in multitudinous ways.

We’ll spend some time playing and feeling the way in which our newly found, high frequency words FEEL when we speak them. This will allow us to fine tune the way in which we will deliver these words and the best feeling tone we will use (both to ourself and others) going forward.

Finding and using the best tone, when speaking these new words, will amplify the effects. You’ll be amazed!


We will uncover brilliant SEO keywords to expand our reach in the Mind, Body, Spirit, Soul Internet space. Yes, words that will not only empower you, but words that genuinely express who you are! These takeaways will become tangible ways for you and your technical team to upgrade your marketing copy and reach more potential clients!

Words are only as powerful as we allow

In many circles you will hear people say that “words are powerful,” but do you believe it?

If words are powerful, do you know why? Because words carry vibration. Vibrational TONE. The tone sets up something for people, and animals too, that carries your intention forward.

Think of a time when you called out to a loved one, or pet, by name. Maybe they came to you. Their choice. Their free will. But, maybe they didn’t come to you. Or maybe not immediately. Perhaps they chose to stop whatever it was they were doing that you didn’t like. Or, perhaps not!

You call out again. Still, they do not bend to YOUR will, wishes, or desire. You call AGAIN. This time your tone of voice changes, getting more irritated, annoyed, angry, and LOUD. You can’t understand why, with all of the energy your vocally transmitting to this person (or pet), that they aren’t listening. And hear me now (believe me later), you’re not commanding their attention.

You are attempting to control that person or animal with words.

Yet, the only difference in the words is the tone.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to drop whatever I am doing and go near a person who’s yelling at me, especially when I hear them using an angry tone. If however, I sense they are calling for me from a caring heart-centered place, I will go. Especially, since I am an empath.

If, however, I sense the yelling has a concern behind it, such as: “Get out of the way,” “Fire,” or “Help,” then yes, I will likely respond by moving quickly, calling out to others, getting help, or offering assistance.

You can tell someone’s intention by their tone of voice.

We almost instinctively perceive tone!

The first thing the person who yells a lot must get (understand) is that they do not control anyone.

The authoritative shouter may make someone uncomfortable enough that they choose to do something for them / bend to their will (think of a soldier going through boot camp) but, 100% of the time, all day, every day, the person on the receiving end of the shouting / yelling has a choice.

If you are yelling at me, I can choose to do as you desire, or NOT! The world does not revolve around you!

So, why do people feel the need to control others with their words? What is all the damned yelling and shouting about anyway?

Over time, yelling at me just desensitizes me to the shouting. Or, my body becomes so stressed that I leave, and get away from that person – even if it means quitting a job! Loud vocals stress my body, if I choose to internalize those commanding words.

I would simply say, loud vocals stress my body, but that is only true if I’m accepting of them.

For example, if I love a particular rock band, I can go to the concert and love the loud singer! So, again, it’s all in our interpretation or how we perceive the tones, or words.

Children hear, “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”. Is this true?

Studies show people who are constantly yelled at become negatively conditioned. (The particular study I linked to here says it also depends upon how much credit we give to the person yelling at us, someone in authority, or parent, etc. their words carry more weight!)

Words roared at us, even more so by those we love, either set us up to become aggressive (anger directed outward) or go into our shell, turning anger inward which, turns into depression or resentment. They may get to a point where they no longer pay attention to anyone who yells at them or they cry, become nervous, etc.

Yes, some words hurt, but maybe not for all the reasons we think.

The intention of the person using the word sets the tone. It’s not just the word that hurts.

Words after all, are just words. They are not REAL. They may represent something, but they are abstract and we can choose to define them any which way we want!

Words need to have a shared definition before they really count for anything anyway. Shared definition is very important – for example, you may define the word “fun” very different than I define the word “fun”. Interestingly we may define the words: “hurt,” “fear,” “pain,” etc. very differently based upon our understanding and experience.

When someone speaks light, fun, happy, or encouraging words to us the tone is typically lighter too! We feel it. Think of how your lover speaks to you. Think of how your best friend speaks to you when you’re engaging in fun, giggly, or perhaps deep insightful conversation. Think of how your grandparent or other close relative speaks to you WHEN they are flowing pure love (energy) to you. You feel loved, warm, and cared for as they speak! You know that they love you, their words are soothing and envelope you in love. Ah!

So let’s try a little experiment. As you sit there and read my words, be sure there is nothing else going to make you excited, no drama – ok? Make sure you’re not distracted and that you are relatively calm and peaceful.

As you begin to read the following list of words –  note if any push your buttons. Specifically do they get  you riled up, mad, sad, or other negative emotion. You’re safe. No one is physically going to harm you and you know this. Only check as you read each word slowly if you feel any mental or physical response. Here goes:

  • Confrontation
  • You’re ugly
  • Scream
  • Attack
  • You’re stupid
  • Betrayal
  • Fight
  • You’re bad
  • Struggle
  • Aggravate
  • Shut up
  • Insult
  • Coward
  • Assault

Do you feel anything in your mind or body as you read the words? Can you agree that these are just words. Characters on the screen. If you felt anything in your mind or body do you see where that is because of the way you define the word or link it with a previous experience?

When someone relays a hurtful story do you, do you find yourself wincing or in some other way empathizing with their story? Again, you are not IN their story – no one is attacking you, but often I find that many of us (especially empathic people) in some small way can sense or feel the pain the person went through during their experience. It’s also the reason I won’t watch certain movies. If I don’t feel the pain in my body I may have bad dreams because the movie assaulted my mind.

To take this topic, “Words are only as powerful as we allow” in another direction, what about doctors who tell their patients they only have 6 months to live? Those words hurt in another way.

In my opinion, doctors break the Hippocratic oath when they tell patients they only have x number of weeks or months to live or there’s nothing else they can do. The doctor may not shout at you, so it’s not the volume of the voice (such as yelling) but those words are very heavy to receive. In fact, it has been theorized that a doctor’s end of life time frame prediction could induce an auto-suggestion manifesting as self fulfilling prophecy.

What’s wrong in this scenario is that people ascribe so much weight to the doctor’s words because of the physician’s credentials and so-called authority. The finality of the meaning we ascribe to the time limit of this death sentence (no pun intended) really packs a punch! In fact, I recall several people telling me that when their doctor told them they only had x weeks or months to live they literally felt a “punch in the gut” of their body!

So, do you stop to question if the doctor’s statement is really true before reacting? Do you take a few minutes to engage your cognitive mind, stay calm, and let the doctor know you want a second, or third opinion? Do you seek out many other experts? Or do you take this one doctor’s word for when you will die? I invite you to think about that because the nocebo effect (read Bruce Lipton’s book “Biology of Belief”) is being proven every day. Of course if you challenge those negative words (and some do – thankfully) they prove the opposite and outlive the prescribed time frame and experience spontaneous healing!

I have been studying the placebo (and nocebo effect) that Bruce Lipton, Phd. speaks of for several years. When we got into the “raw and living foods” philosophy of eating back in 2008 we shared meals with many people who rejected their allopathic physician’s “limit on their life span” and took it upon themselves to gain knowledge and allow their bodies to heal naturally. Dr. Lipton still interviews about the placebo effect and how traditional western doctors only get about 15 minutes of education on it in medical school. In my opinion, even if doctors got a whole course on the placebo effect (and nocebo effect) it wouldn’t be enough.

Dr. Alison J. Kay talks about the placebo effect as well. She has studied in the east, Asia and India and thoroughly knows and understands the basis of the placebo effect (using several modalities, including meditation) and it’s relationship basis of subtle energy. (Reference my full article about Dr. Kay’s work here.)

Recently I’ve come upon an interview by Dr. Paul Drouin of along with Dr. Joe Dispenza where they discuss the placebo effect –>> Click here. This also may explain by how so called “false hope” may indeed be helpful to someone. When you look at the science (which is just measured observation) it begins to make sense.

Let me give you some happy and light words and see if now, they change your mood, or if you feel these in your mind or body:

  • Safe
  • Hug
  • Silly
  • Joke
  • Fun
  • Tickle
  • Whisper
  • Smile
  • Love
  • Laugh
  • Winning
  • Cuddle
  • Soft

How do you feel now? Again, just words. Again, just what meaning you attach to these. Did you think of your pets, loved ones, children, etc.?

One of the Pixar short video’s we love is called, “Dug’s Special Mission” from the movie “Up”. In it there’s a line that my husband and I say to each other often when we’re seeking to be understood. It’s always said in fun, and with a light heart. The line is: “Do you understand the words that I am speaking to you now”? It is our belief that the intention and tone used when words are spoken, often say much more than the word chosen implies.

I am a tonal. I read between the lines – a LOT! Sometimes I get it wrong, or maybe not. Maybe people just catch themselves and then clarify what they mean when I question their words, but I am always seeking to understand. Sometimes when I perceive someone speaking in a harsh or brisk tone it takes me awhile to figure out if they intend to be forceful, irritating, or hurtful. Their tone has probably caused me some undue fatigue. I have even been irritated by the tone of someone’s laughter! Has that ever happened to you?

If you are in any kind of pain or dis-ease, let’s try that same word power game. Focus on the pain in your body. Assign the pain a number 1-10 with 10 being the most intense. Now read the following words:

  • Trust myself
  • Kind
  • Hug myself
  • It’s OK
  • Allow
  • Comfort
  • Getting better
  • Peace
  • I’m alive
  • Knowing
  • Healing
  • Power
  • I’m still breathing
  • Pure Joy
  • Blessed
  • Pure Love
  • Light
  • Flow
  • Bliss

Check in with your pain again. Has your number 1-10 come down?

Even if your number only came down one number say, from a 9 to an 8, that’s improvement! If so, this validates and proves to you the power of words. Read them again but this time in the voice of one person (who either now or from your past) who has a voice you love and who always spoke in a nice, sweet, caring tone. Do it now.

Recheck your pain level.

Bottom line: Words only carry the power (vibration and energy) as we allow. The tone in which the words are spoken (either out loud or in our heads), or the authority of those who speak the words – attempts to make the words carry more meaning / power, however we still have a choice whether to buy in to that or not. If we do not buy into people’s authority, the power of their words mean less to us. If we can decipher someone’s intention based upon the tone we can also better choose whether to accept or reject their words.

Peace and love to all.
