I have always believed that what you focus on expands. There are many bible verses that support that words have power! Matthew 15:11, Proverbs 21:23 and Ephesians 4:29 to name a few.
As much as I KNOW this, I am not perfect and this over the past few weeks I have spoken some things into existence, and I am just like (face palm) oh emm gee, girl?! WTH?
As you know (or may not know) I am an entrepreneur – I am doing steady project management freelance work to keep the bills paid and I am a real estate investor focusing on a variety of strategies (note investing and marketing!). My plate has been full for many (many) months and I have been praying for a larger plate! Somewhere in this conversation I kept saying “I am overwhelmed”. “I am so busy”. Welp, all of a sudden it was like my whole world came crashing in to support me “being overwhelmed” and “being busy”.
You guys, I truly let my head get under water the past couple of weeks. And I KNOW it is because I spoke it into existence! I mean last Friday a friend and I were having coffee talking in GREAT detail about how neither of us have ever felt an earthquake in the (6 years) time we have lived here. WELL that same day there was a 7.1 aftershock in Ridgecrest! Guess who FELT their first earthquake? BOTH of us! While some may say we jinxed in, I do truly believe words have power!
I was recently in Vegas for an AMAZING (AMAZING) training by Rob Sperry and one of the BIGGEST gold nuggets I received was “LISTEN to yourself less and TALK to yourself more!” BOOM WORDS HAVE POWER!
Now, all the above has been somewhat negative and there IS a major positive to words HAVING power! Affirmations have been proven to work! Speaking kind words to others has a MAJOR impact as well! <hello, look at the little engine THAT COULD>.
So, the purpose of this blog is to speak powerful words into existence! Yes, my plate is full, but I have a HUGE plate and I am capable of handling everything on it! I am capable of doing it all and doing it all well! I have peace in my life. I have ample rest in my life. I have a lot (a LOT) of fun in my life. I am surrounded by love and I give love all the time! I have patience!
I am a child of God; I am on this planet to shine His light and impact lives This is being done in a myriad (have you seen the movie Heather’s?) of ways! Every day for me is a walk of faith and I embrace it!
I hope that you make it a habit to listen to yourself less and talk to yourself more! Please (please) remember that words have power! Use the power for GOOD
