Speak It Into Being
Our words are powerful. You can speak your dreams into being. This has got to be one of the simplest, most effective ways to change your life. Listen to how you speak about your finances, your job, your love life. You will soon be able to see that you have created your current life with your words. The Bible says “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” What’s in your heart? What are you speaking?
The easiest way to change a destructive way of thinking and speaking is through the repetitive speaking into being that which you long for. This not only changes our future, it actually changes the way we speak and feel about our situation. Please note the word repetitive, you have to make this a part of your routine. For example, if you have a lack of finances, here are some of the things you might say to change this.
- “I have more than enough money to meet my needs.”
- “I spend my money wisely”.
- “I am rich beyond my wildest dreams.”
- “I am a money magnet.”
Speak these as though it were in the NOW, not in some distant hazy future. You do not say “Someday I will be wealthy.” You claim your dream now, you already own it, then watch it happen.
For love you might say:
- “I am loved.”
- “I have happy, satisfying, relationships in all areas of my life.”
- “I am a loving, happy person.”
One thing you cannot do is say “I am loved by Jane/Joe.” We cannot manipulate others with our words.
If you have a short temper or are easily upset by life you might say “ I am a calm, rational person.”
This may be awkward at first, you may feel as though you are just telling a lot of big lies.
Soon your subconscious starts to believe what you say and then it becomes part of your reality. You stop doubting what you are saying because it is real. Your subconscious does not rationalize, it just believes exactly what you tell it. When we give ‘orders’ to our subconscious, it has to go through a period of cancelling out old orders. It is very literal and does not rationalize.
- You: I want to be loved by someone who will be faithful and will love me.
- You: I want him to have a sense of humor and love watching old black and white movies.
- You: I know that’s not possible because my nose is so big.
- You: I just do not seem to attract the kind of man I want, I may have to settle for Joe.
We attract exactly what we put out there. Nothing has to change but you.
I have clients who tell me they are making lists and speaking things into being. This is awesome, however what are they speaking to their friends? Listen carefully to what you say about yourself and your situation. Are these friends supportive of your dream? Or do they ‘know’ you cannot lose that last 10 pounds because you never pass up dessert? Do they feel they know you so well that change is just not possible? Some dreams are best left secret, the last thing we need is someone telling us that _____ is just not possible for us.
When you blab your dreams to anyone who will listen, you let the power out of this dream.
It’s a bit like a big balloon, you slowly let the air out each time you talk about it.
What are you doing to support your dreams? If you want to be an artist, are you going to museums and galleries looking at works of art? Are you buying paints, taking classes, or are you talking about how you will never get recognition because you did not go to a prestigious art school?
"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." (Mark 11:23)
