You may not realize it, but words affect us. If you don’t believe me, take a look around you. Words are on billboards, words are in songs, words are coming off your computer and your television screen. Many people know that words affect people and can put a “spell” on you. This spell that words put on you is called programming. Some people don’t know why they do what they do, blaming the devil for it. However, it is words and images in their head that make them behave the way they do.
A significant part of my self-development blog is helping us start using better vocabulary, particularly as it relates to wealth. This is why I have a word of the month blog segment. Some of us have been programmed by family, friends, and culture, to use words that are preventing our manifestations. As a result, one of the biggest inhibitors interfering with us manifesting the lifestyle we want is the types of words we use.
Take a moment and consciously listen to the words your closest friends use. Do they fill you with hope and desire for success or gloom and dread? You know the saying, “birds of a feather flock together.” Therefore, if your friends are using horrible words, you probably are, too. Now, take some time to reflect on the words you use when talking to other people. Think about the words floating around in your head. Are they positive or negative? Now is the time to make an effort to change the words you use to change your life.
This month’s word of the month is “Lushness.” I chose this word because this year’s focus is words that encourage wealth. The forces at play in this world always want us to focus on lack and poverty-consciousness. However, this year, we are moving toward prosperity-consciousness just by changing the words we use.
Lushness – (noun) the property of being lush and abundant and a pleasure to the senses
Use of the word in a sentence. The lushness of the apple tree allowed everyone to be able to enjoy fresh, delicious fruit from it.
