Language, whether it's emerging from our mind, our heart, or
our lips, says a lot about ourselves. It tells others what
state we're in at the time, actually where we are in our
life, as well as how we dress our self, our body and our
soul. It also tells us what we will do now, what we did in
the past, and what we will do in the future. Yet, we are so
comfortable with our own voice and too busy to hear its
voice that negative expressions escape constantly. Does
what you say and how you say it count? U-betcha.
For those of you that are a student with the laws of
attraction, also known as manifesting what you desire with
the power of energy, this is another way you can use the law
for your benefit. Let me expound on this in the simplest of
What you say is how you are. There are usually many ways to
say what you say. Many ways will not attract, others will.
Let's journey together on this with an example. Let's use
an expression we tend to use more mindfully and less
expressively, "I could care less."
"I could care less," taken literally means "I care more than
I might seem to." You are saying that you do care some and
that isn't what you intended to mean which was not caring at
all. The true way to state your feelings would be, "I
couldn't care less." It may sound harsher yet it's the
truth. It is important to be true to your words.
Being true in your language is a vital step to being in a
place of truth in yourself and in the world. As a I child,
my Dad drummed the expression into me, and probably you as
well, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say
anything at all." Practicing the laws isn't about sugar
coating your feelings or your language. It's about
expressing them from your own truth. But what the saying
tells us that even though we can acknowledge this as our
truth we don't have to express that truth verbally.
Because we are so comfortable with our language that we have
stopped hearing what we are saying 90% of the time. The
only way to catch your language is to use this exercise.
Here is a practice that will help you begin your journey in
how to uncover the truth to your language. It will also
change your hearing process anytime you speak. After
listening consciously to your words, then and only then, can
you begin a strong path to attractiveness. Also, hearing and
acknowledging what you said takes courage. Is it easy to
listen to yourself? Heck no. To me, my voice sounds like
chalk squeaking on a blackboard. Focus on the outcome to
move past the squeal. The shift in attractiveness is well
worth the practice.
Audio record your telephone conversations. Just your side
of the conversation. There isn't any country or state laws
that affect you since they are one sided like there are in
recording two-way conversations or in-person conversations.
And you don't have to ask the other person's permission.
Extra tip: This is also a great way to improve your
marketing and telephone skills as well.
Listen to the recording. Listen for the incomplete
sentences, unfinished thoughts, and vocal expressiveness or
flatness. Did you really say what you meant? What wasn't
said that you thought you said? What wasn't finished and
you thought it was? What words were slung together that
attracted the opposite of what you wanted?
Extra tip: Tape record your conversations with your
children. We become so comfortable with those that we love
our language sabotages our relationships frequently.
Especially with teenagers.
Awareness and acknowledgment are the first two steps to
changing anything. We can't do either without hearing it
first. And you can't change what you don't acknowledge.
Attractive language allows you to walk a different path
through life. Take the leap, find just enough courage to
practice this exercise, it may be painful at times, but it
will rewrite your life and all those that touch it.
