Your Words Are Your Power

words have power
From runes to modern language, there’s always been magic in words.


What you say to yourself, even what you write down, tends to come true. I know that sounds strange, but there’s power in words, the ones we say to ourselves and to the world. And I’ve found in my career that writing down my goals, for myself, my business, and my life in general, helps bring those goals true. I don’t know why, or even where it comes from, but I’m not the only one to whom this happens. Even all our modern gurus, from Eckhart Tolle to the late Wayne Dyer, say the same: the way to connect with intention is to make it real, to bring it into being. The very act of doing that brings something new into the world, and it’s like dowsing rods moving to a water source: part of the equipment here for finding the wellspring of your life is your own words, since words are intentions and they have power.

When I start every year, I choose a new word for myself. Something I feel connected to, or respect, and want to attract abundantly into my life. So, my tradition for myself is to find the word I want more of in my life in the next year. I’ve made it a tradition to find that word engraved, etched into stone, which makes it more real for me. And I keep it with me to remind myself what my intention for my life this year will be.

If you follow our YouTube channel, you’ll know what that Power word is for me in 2020. And if you haven’t seen my video on this yet, I encourage you to watch it as I go into greater detail about the importance of setting your intentions for yourself. You don’t have to do what I do, and have it etched in stone; others I talk to write their goals for themselves. Simply. Even financial goals, written and said, seem to have a greater chance of happening. But for me the attractors are the words that help me grow as a person in the world, from which, I believe, everything else comes.

So, set some goals for yourself and share them into the world. You don’t have to tell anyone else. You only need to tell yourself. Write it to yourself, or carry a reminder of that word, like I do.

Dreams have a better chance of happening if they are given a chance to be real. The first step, for me at least, is to make real a resonant connection that draws me to the paths of opportunity, self realization, and meaningful relationships. For me, my intention in stone is like a compass. Without one we don’t know where we are going. With a negative word on that stone, my power is taken from me. With a powerful and resonant and intentional word, I feel empowered, like I’m always more ready to take on new challenges, to overcome new obstacles, and overcome my own automatic negative thoughts. Words are power, that’s something to recognize. And putting your own power into the world makes you more powerful, and more able to let you get from where you are now to where you want and deserve to be.
