I – “The tongue has the power of life and death,
and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
(Proverbs 18:21 – NIV)
II – “Words kill, words give life;
they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”
(Proverbs 18:21 – The Message)
III – “Words have power in matters of life and death,
and those who love them will savor their fruit.”
(Proverbs 18:21 – The Voice
IV – “There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword,
But the tongue of the wise promotes health.”
(Proverbs 12:18 – NKJV)
V – “Like caterpillars our metamorphosis begins with what comes from our mouth. Caterpillars spin silk cocoons from the mouth. We speak life or death, success or failure. All transformation starts with what comes from our mouth.”
― Brandi L. Bates
VI – “Regardless of the language we speak, words connect us on a far deeper level than just getting our point across. Each word carries its own energetic vibration and can have a profound impact on the quality of our lives. The gift of language allows us to become active creators from the moment we utter our first word. When a child transitions from vocalizing sounds to speaking words, it is a celebrated event. More than just a developmental milestone, it marks the day when a child enters the realm of conscious creation. Conscious choice replaces natural instincts, and the child begins the journey of creating his or her destiny.
Many of us are familiar with the law of attraction which states “like attracts like”; in other words, what we think about we bring about (positive or negative). Although this law works when correctly and consistently applied, it can be tricky business keeping our focus on what we desire 100 percent of the time (we’re only human). Doubt often sets in and we begin to fall back into negative thought and speech patterns undermining our attempts to make positive changes.
The important word here is patterns. As creatures of habit, examining and changing our negative patterns is the key to unlocking our full manifestation power. Thinking about what we want is only half the equation; changing our autopilot language program is the missing variable.
We think, speak, and write using words, yet these seemingly neutral forms are actually the building blocks of our lives. Language is undeniably a gift and, as the only species to have this tool available to us, we have a responsibility to use it consciously. Words afford us the ability to have a proactive role in the creation and progression of our lives. Imagine a world where language suddenly became obsolete—talk about being at a loss for words!”
VII – “Let the weak one throw out his chest
and say, ‘I’m tough, I’m a fighter.’”
(Joel 3:10 – The Message)
