A lot of us have a language problem. And we’re not talking about the potty-mouth stuff.
We have our affirmations. We make our V.I.B.E. (vision) boards. We write in our journals, we make our big dreams and plans, and oh, we dream BIG and we dream beautifully and we think positively and we make sure to state whatever it is that we want as if it is already here: I am a creator of abundance. I am healthy and fit. Money flows easily to me. I am in harmony in all my supportive and loving relationships.
And then, dang it, we leave the house.
And we say to our children, “No, I’m not buying you that 1000-piece Star Wars Lego set, we don’t have the money for that!”
And we say to our friends, “Do I look fat in these capri pants? I swear, my butt is as wide as a barn door.”
And we say to our partners, “What, you’re working late again??? It’s like we’re just ROOMMATES!”
Funny how we forget that the Universe–and we–are listening no matter where we are, isn’t it? It’s like those people–you know who you are–who think we can’t see you picking your nose while you idle at a stoplight in your car.
We can see you. The Universe can hear you. Your own subconscious has a glass held up to the wall, and it’s listening to every word you say.
Just like we tell our kids: use your words. But hey, a footnote to that? Use ’em carefully.
