Conscious Language

on July 7, 2010

This is a shared message from my friend Tony Burroughs (a link to his website is provided below).  This message is so well stated that it is included here in its entirety.  Just remember that your words are like prayers, so be careful what you wish for!    

The Bridge ~ Step 21 ~ Conscious Language

Know that you are assisting others by your own realizations.
You then enhance and increase the possibilities
for others to go where you have been.
    

So much of our lives have been spent thinking that we can be frivolous with our spoken words, but now we’re finding out that it’s to our great advantage to be clear and concise about what we desire to manifest. We know that our words are the building-blocks of our future. With this in mind, we’ve eliminated five words that kept us un-empowered and no longer serve us well. In our circles, we’ve stopped using trying, hoping, wanting, to be, and not because they were interfering with the manifestation of our intentions. Today we will talk about the first three of these sabotaging words.

      We eliminated “trying” because it’s a halfway word. It provides a built-in excuse to be unsuccessful. If you’re having a conversation with someone and you say, “I’ll meet you tomorrow morning at 11 o’clock ,” and their response is, “I’ll try,” it isn’t very reassuring.

     We’ve also dropped “hoping” and “hopefully” from our vocabulary. When a person is “hoping” that something will happen, he or she is holding on to a little bit of doubt about whether their intention will really come true. If they replace “I hope” and “hopefully” with “I intend”, and really trust in the Intention Process, then things will begin to change for them. They will stop limiting themselves unknowingly.

     Wanting is another word that we refrain from using in our Intenders Circles because it implies that there is a scarcity of things. We looked it up in the dictionary and it said that if we were in a state of wanting, then we were lacking. So now, instead of saying, “I want a new car,” we say, “I intend that I have a new car.” This slight change, though very subtle, has taken scarcity out of the picture and brought us much closer to our own empowerment.

     You can easily tell what’s going on in the lives of your friends and acquaintances by listening closely to what they’re saying. If they are using these un-empowered words, then they are most-likely creating scarcity and limitation in their lives. You can help them to raise their level of consciousness by setting an example for them and, when they’re receptive, by gently explaining to them how their words are limiting their experience. When you do this, everyone is uplifted. And that energy radiates outward into your community and into the world you live in.

My Intention for today is:
I intend that I am only using words that serve me.
