A few years ago some Russian scientists Pjotr Garjajav, and his research group revealed that 90% of our DNA that was once labeled as ‘junk’ (by findings of The ENCODE project led by Prof. Chris Ponting) actually possessed a higher use and intelligence.
It was revealed that our genetic code followed the same rules as all our languages. Words have a specific vibrational frequencies which can influence our DNA and our body can be programmed by language, words and thought.
The words we use shape not only our belief systems, values and feelings but impact our physical bodies on a cellular level; shaping the foundation of our reality. This means it’s important to choose our words wisely and with our highest good at heart. Here are some ways words can transform our realities and what we manifest:
1) Express yourself honestly
Truthful expression is extremely important. Every feeling and thought you have is valid. When you try to contain it instead of letting it out, you will feel your emotional body struggling in its attempt to break free. It’s necessary to gives ourselves an outlet to express all our negative emotions before we move on to replacing them with positive affirmations. There can be no transformation without acceptance first.
Scrap words and phrases like ‘ugly’, ‘fat’, ‘I can’t’ and ‘I hate’ as these words create dissonant energy within us, and stir negative frequencies of worthlessness, suffering and fear.
When you want to express a negative emotion or thought, use words like ‘I feel’ or ‘I prefer’ over ‘I hate’ and ‘I can’t’. Using positive words like ‘loving, grateful, superb, beautiful, thriving, energized, healthy, creative, incredible’ will transform your feelings and impressions of yourself.
3) Feed the emotional body with a healthy vocabulary
Just like our bodies respond better to balanced fresh meals, our emotional bodies need to be encouraged, loved and cared for.
Repeat to yourself, “I am good enough,” “I am strong and capable,” “Wherever I am, whatever I do and whoever I become, I am safe and I am loved,” “I open myself up to love and light.”
This incites a greater confidence and ease within us. It will free you from anxiety and fear as we start to function out of love.
4) Choose what you feed your mind
The words that impact us are not only the ones we speak but the ones we voluntarily expose ourselves to. We can choose films to watch that open our minds, educate and evolve us. Darren Aronovksy’s The Fountain is a great graphic novel and also film to start with. We can listen to music that soothes our soul, that does not dwell/focus on pain, angst, toxicity and suffering.
A personal favorite is Ho’oponopono, an ancient Hawaiian healing song which translates to “I am sorry, please forgive me, I thank you and I love you.” There are several versions of it ranging from psychedelic trance to authentic tribal tunes.
5) Learn mantras for different purposes
A mantra is not just an ordinary combination of letters and syllables, but a living force that acts as a medicine for the soul. Each word has its own power and triggers a certain reaction within us. They work deep within our subconscious, destroying the unwanted and replacing it with light like medicine.
Here are some chants that can help in raising our consciousness:
Chanting Om, the sound of the universe, binds you to the source. It reminds you of your roots. Not the superficial ones of nationality or race but much deeper; the ‘you’ at the universal level.
Used for conscious spiritual growth, the Gayatri Mantra is aimed at purification of the self.
Om buhr, bhuva svah
tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhīmahi
dhiyo yo nah pracodayat
It is roughly translated to:
We meditate on the glory of the Creator;
Who has created the Universe;
Who is worthy of Worship;
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;
Who is the remover of Sin and Ignorance;
May He open our hearts and enlighten our Intellect.
Also known as the Compassion Buddha Mantra, it focuses on non-attachment to your pain, anger or suffering. Through non-attachment, one can love something for what it truly is. The Dalai Lama speaks of it as a mantra that helps you find your own ‘buddhahood’: the divine inside of you.
It is said that “In dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.” Every sound has a deep and intricate meaning.
When we choose certain words to describe our thoughts, our selves or other people, we have subconsciously foretold how they will impact us. It is as if we have made a contract with ourselves to receive only the extent of our definitions. The universe listens to the vibrational intention of all the words we speak and all the thoughts we believe to be true, and as we evolve, more and more of our subconscious nature is revealed to us.
