The Power of Kind Words

nice words, kind words

Use nice, kind words to create your reality.

Our words create our reality. That is the power of language.


Magicians know this. They say “abracadabra,” which is an Aramaic word meaning “I will create as I speak.” Their words have transformative properties. They then pull a rabbit out of their hat…or disappear. Aramaic, by the way, is the original language of Jesus. And speaking of Jesus…


Christians pray. They pray for good things to happen; they pray for healing. They use their words to communicate with the Divine to ask for what they want. They pray it into being. In same cases, whatever the problem, they have to #prayitaway.

Motivational Speakers

Motivational speakers and success coaches use positive affirmations to set and reach goals: Today I joyfully reach my goal of speaking to ten people. Repeating affirmations daily keeps attention and focus on activities that allow them to reach their stated goals.

It doesn’t matter what you call it–magic words, prayer, affirmations–speaking our desires out loud moves our energy and our being closer to attaining what we desire.

Many people spend more time thinking about and talking about what they DON’T want. That’s what worry is–a prayer for what you don’t want. If you’re going to spend time focused on the future, why not think and talk about what you WANT to have happen. Speak whatever that is into being.

Helping Others and Helping Ourselves

If I’m not in a great headspace; if I’m feeling unkind and hypercritical of myself; if I have a hard time focusing on what I do want, I often start thinking of the most important people in my life: my sweetheart, my babies, my folks, my sibs, my friends. Sometimes it’s easier using my words to create a great life for them. I pray for them, their partners and friends, for joy to come their way. I use nice words, kind words.

Once I show kindness to others it’s easier to use nice words on myself and create a kinder reality for all I encounter.

Today I pray that all my words are kind words, nice words. #Amen #abracadabra

A Conduit with a Can-Do-It Attitude

A Conduit with a Can-Do-It Attitude

   A conduit is a “means of access, communication” states the World Dictionary. It doesn’t list examples or show pictures, but if it did, I’d be there, you’d be there, we’d all be there. Isn’t communication, after all, an essential part of who we are and what we do as living, breathing human beings on the planet?

   Aren’t we all conduits of some sort, passing information from one person to another, one situation to another?  When problems arise it’s because communication breaks down, which usually means a “conduit” has been mocked, ridiculed, or chastised in to silence. Don’t let that happened! 


    It’s the steady flow of information that keeps people on task, projects on time, and the world spinning reliably on its axis. A person with a passion, purpose and a “can-do” attitude will continue to relay information because that’s what conduits do. Especially after a communication breakdown!


   We are all conduits for each other. It’s our job to keep the information flowing, like a global game of the kids party game, Telephone, except today we have cell phones, text messaging, email, and the social platforms to help in our quest.


   What can you do to keep the information flowing? Be a conduit with a can-do-it attitude.
