Everything is energy; energy is vibration; vibration is frequency. All of our thoughts and words have their own frequency and we are magnets, which means that whatever frequency we send out, the Universe sends back to us; this is how we create our own reality.
Language is therefore a very powerful tool in your manifestation toolbox and witches know this, since they may choose to craft particular phrases to focus and set their intention for what they wish to manifest into physical reality. Hence, the term 'spelling' is derived from the knowledge that words cast spells.
Knowing this, have you considered that every time you speak, you are essentially casting a spell? This is why it is so important to pay special attention to how you speak about yourself, your life, the world and others.
For example, if you are struggling with a difficult task and in frustration you say "I can't do it!” What do you expect to happen? You are telling the Universe that you cannot do it and at that time dooming yourself to failure, until you change your mind set. When we are in a negative mind set we can literally curse ourselves with our words, by speaking about ourselves in a derogatory way.
When you speak, try to speak in a loving way. Whatever you think, decide to speak about it from a positive point of view, with love. If you can do this consistently, you will see how much your life improves as you begin to see the good, and the Universe sends more good back to you.
Start out by 'taking a moment' when you are stressed, having a bad day or feeling anxious - before you speak, take a moment to consider if what you are going to say focusses on the negative and if it does, find a way of speaking about the positive instead by maintaining a more balanced, objective point of view - just pause before you speak rather than launching straight into a moan or a rant.
An example from my personal experience relates to social anxiety. I am an empath, which means that I feel other peoples' energies intensely, which could be very unpleasant and overwhelming for me before I learnt to protect myself and transmute negative energies. I am also an introvert. So, when I was faced with social situations that would lead to feelings of anxiety for me, because for example I was surrounded by lots of people or absorbing negative emotions from others, I might say things to my partner like "I can't cope with this" and "it's too much". What I could have said to avoid perpetuating those feelings of anxiety was "I just need to take a minute to recharge my batteries" and "there is a lot going on here at the moment isn't there".
A common example of people cursing themselves relates to personal appearance, such as people saying "I look so fat" or "I hate my bum". What they could say is "I'd like to lose some weight" or "I would prefer my bum to look...”
It really is as simple as changing your focus and once you recognise the power of your words you can start to make the changes you want in your life. It is a matter of empowering yourself and looking for the lessons rather than feeling like a victim and being hopeless.
You are a Creator Being and have the responsibility for what you send out into the Universe; send out love.
What are you going to spell now you know the power of your words?
