Over the years you have probably heard this expression or read it somewhere in a book or article. “By your words you will be praised or condemned”. It is in the Bible and used casually today in various forms of speech. We go on our merry way saying things with little thought of the impact of our words. This is dangerous business. Letters have vibrational sounds and send out a force field that creates them into manifestation. We wonder why odd things happen to us when there seems to be no cause for their experience. I thought it might be helpful to listen to some of the things you say. I reviewed a book called “The Greatest Story Never Told” by Ron Watson. It’s a really super little book but, alas, out of print. If you can find it, buy it. In it contains some really everyday destructive language we use to destroy ourselves. Listen to what you say:
It’s killing me
This job is killing me (earth death attributable to job stress)
It’s a killer
You scared me to death
It (or he/she) is breaking my heart.
I’m eating my heart out seeing them together
What are you trying to do, give me a heart attack
You almost gave me a heart attack
My heart’s breaking over this
You broke my heart
What a heartbreaker!
Makes me sick to my stomach
I can’t stomach it
It nauseates me
I have no stomach for it (ulcers to surgical removal)
Oh my aching back (obvious)
I can’t stand it anymore (balance disorders to back problems)
I’m bent out of shape (numerous possibilities here, from disabling & disfiguring arthritic problems to back disorders)
Carrying all the weight on my shoulders (shoulder and back problems)
He’s always stabbing me in the back (stabbing back pains)
He’s a back stabber (stabbing back pains)
I can’t bear to see it (vision problems)
I can’t see my way through this
I don’t want to hear it (hearing disorders)
I won’t listen to you
I am sick and tired (many people are)
I’m retired (it is bad enough to be tired, but to be “re-tired!) Remember the soul did not come here to retire.
Other miscellaneous disorders
It makes my head swim (sinus & congestive disorders)
I can’t keep my head above water (sinus & congestive disorders)
I need a little breathing space (try breathing out of a stuffed up nose)
I’ll breathe better when I get on my feet (breathing problems upon lying down and sleeping)
Get your bowels in an uproar (diarrhea and flatulence)
I’m fed up to here with him (constipation)
My heart bleeds for you
I bleed for them
What a bloody state of affairs (England)
It burns me up (fevers)
He gets on my nerves (nervous disorders)
Personal true life story of condemnation by my own words
Several years ago I purchased a wonderful old home. The renovation took much longer and was much harder than anticipated. It was one thing after another and by the time we could move in, I was exhausted. Once we moved in, guests came and I found I was even more tired. Then came Christmas and more guests came. I said numerous times, “I just need a break so I can catch my breath”. I said it several times. Finally two days before Christmas, I slipped and fell in the kitchen. I slammed so hard into the dishwasher handle that I broke (not cracked) my rib.
I could barely breathe and the pain was so bad, I could barely move. So I did get my “break” and I had to try and breathe through pain. I literally had to “catch my breath”. The next few months were pretty miserable. BUT, I did get the break and the opportunity to catch my breath as I had requested.
Beware. We must learn to praise our situations no matter how nasty and harsh. We will be taken out of our “prison”.
