“I am connected to the mightiness of my truth and use it with wisdom, compassion, and humility.”
Our words are as impactful as our thoughts to both ourselves and others. Your words can speak both life and death into any circumstance and person. With such power, it’s essential to be responsible with what we sow into others as well as our own internal dialogue. Looking at it and questioning if our words are growing us or tearing us down. Also, measuring conversations with other individuals by the same standard. The onus is on us to be mindful about when, how, and what we say that needs to be expressed. Doing so with poise, insight, and diffidence. This is why there is so much emphasis on speaking the truth and not inflated egotistical ideals or flat out lies.
Ponder this, please
- Is what you’re looking to say meant to be of benefit to yourself or the other person?
- Are your words cloaked in love wrapped with truth?
- Have you checked your intention before speaking?
- Are you expressing what you know to be the truth?
- Have you asked to see if your advice or opinion is welcomed or even wanted?
Lotus Medicine: The tongue is mightier than the sword, and the tongue of the wise brings healing. Our words can unite, heal, bring about change, facilitate growth, or express love and everything in between. They can also be the most divisive and destructive force, the choice is ours. We can embrace the sacredness in our communications or be passively dismissive toward it. The force is strong in us padawan, the question is, what will we do with it?
Love and Light,
