Feel the difference in these two words.
Can you feel the difference? Can you
feel the different energies of the two words?
One is negative and one is positive. Words have an energy, a vibration.
When I say "closed" my body seems to sag and when I say "open" my body straightens up. Many words we use every day are having this affect on us. You could say yes, but these two words mean different things. Yes they do, although instead of saying "it's closed", you could say it's "not open" or it "opens at ____".
Quite a few years ago I took a course on switching negative words to positive words. It has been very beneficial in many areas of my life, I use the techniques often when I am stuck or have gotten off track. One technique I use is each morning I think of a positive word, write it down and focus on it throughout the day. Simple but effective.
A suggestion I would have is to think about words or phrases you use regularly , write them down, now how can you make it more uplifting by changing a word or two. Practice using the new phrase until it comes natural
It's good to see you - Its great to see you
I like that color on you - that is a great color on you
We had a good time - We had a fantastic time
That was educational - That was inspiring
Using positive words can have the ability to lift up your energy, the more you use them the more uplifting and positive your life can become. Even making simple changes like "Its a good day" compared to "it's a great day" or "it's a wonderful day". Making this simple change can not only uplift the other person but your energy is lifted too.
