Our world is made up of energy from the tiniest single-celled organism to the largest piece of granite on the planet, El Capitan in Yosemite, California. It doesn’t matter if you are a table, a bunny or a human being – you are energy. In fact, everything in the universe is made up of various combinations of energetic cells wrapped in molecules, atoms and subatomic particles.
Most of us know that lightning, wind, gas and electricity are all examples of energy. However, when we look at ourselves in the mirror, we see a person, not a giant network of cellular electricity. Are we really a walking ball of energy? We certainly are and we can easily prove it. Have you ever shuffled your feet across the carpet and then rushed over to touch your little brother on the head for a good shock? I know I did. Shuffling your feet across the carpet charges you up with electricity and your body holds that charge until it comes in contact with the right source of energy to discharge it. You can certainly feel this discharge of energy as each of you experiences the power of your own energy. Not only do we feel this energy, we hear it, too, as it makes that special sound like something crisping up at the speed of light. And on a lucky day when the conditions are perfect you can even see the electrical shock. How else could this happen if we weren’t already part of the electrical circuitry of the universe?
Carpet and little brothers aren’t the only examples of energy. Actions, words and thoughts are examples of energy, too. In fact, actions, words and thoughts are powerful forms of energy that we often use against ourselves and each other. The good news is that we also use these forms of energy to create a lot of love in the world. Science has shown that it doesn’t matter if we speak words or think words; it’s all energy that is projected into the world. It’s energy we feel and energy we give off. Some of this energy is low frequency energy, and some of the energy is high frequency energy. What does it matter if low or high energy is created? All energy produces experiences for us and others. That means if our beliefs, thoughts, words and actions carry a low energy, we will experience that low energy within ourselves. By contrast, if we believe, think, speak and act in ways that are high frequency, we experience that energy ourselves, too.
Low vs. High Energy Vibrations
One of the qualities of energy is that it is always some form of movement or vibration. We aren’t just energy, then—we are energy in motion. We are all vibrating at various frequencies at different times. Some of the frequencies are low or slow and others are higher or faster.
Low or slow frequencies are denser, or what is often called negative energy. A low or slow frequency doesn’t automatically mean a harmful energy is present, though that may be the case. Low frequency things seem more solid to us, though nothing really is. Low energy has less movement and can feel like sludge in our system. This stuck, sludgy energy can lead to preventable illness. When our low frequency beliefs, thoughts, words and actions are repetitively low, various parts of the body are affected depending on the content of the low frequency energy. There is a proven mind-body connection between repetitive negative thoughts and specific preventable illnesses. Check out Louise Hay’s book, You Can Heal Your Life. This doesn’t mean that you or anyone else is to blame for some illness you have. All that is happening when we become unwell is that the body is telling us we are out of balance in some area. We poke at it with our low frequencies and it pokes back to help us see what needs to be healed. Preventable illness is an opportunity—all is divine.
By contrast, higher or faster frequencies are lighter, or more positive, as many might say. Higher frequencies are also healthier than low frequencies. Kindness, understanding, connection, gratitude, peace and love are all examples of higher, faster energetic frequencies and they serve us well as they create balance within the mind and body. This balance is also called healing. Check the chart below to gain a better understanding of the contrasting experiences that we have with low and high energetic frequencies. Remember that low frequencies often cause us pain, suffering and separation whereas high frequencies bring us support, tranquility and connectedness.
So, what are some examples of negative words and positive words that we use in daily conversation without ever thinking of the true effect they are having? See if you can imagine saying and feeling any of the sentences below. How do they feel in your body when you say them to yourself? Do they match how you truly feel in your heart? Can you feel the imbalance that occurs with low and slow energetic words?
|LOW & SLOW||HIGH & FAST|
|“I hate you!”||“I think you are fantastic!”|
|“I’m an idiot.”||“I’m happy being me.”|
|“You make me so angry! It’s all your fault.”||“Let’s work together and find a solution.”|
|“I will never forgive you!”||“Everyone is struggling and needs understanding and love.”|
Do yourself a favor. Cut low frequency beliefs, thoughts, words and actions out of your day as often as you can. You don’t need to replace them with anything because the natural, normal, true you will come through automatically and you will experience that instead. How does it feel to vibrate at a higher energetic frequency? Like freedom. See for yourself what you experience with this.
The Ripple Effect
We are all connected. That means we are all affected by the energy each of us puts out into the world. Just as a pebble creates a ripple in a pond, we, too, create ripples all around us as we move and speak. So, when you are yelling obscenities at someone, the energy you are creating is low, or negative, and that negativity has a ripple effect that touches the lives of those around you, including your pets and your children. On the other hand, the same is true for words of love, kindness and encouragement. These, too, create far-reaching effects for those around you. The difference is in the overall effect of the words – one is detrimental and the other is healing.
The big question is, “What kind of energy are we creating each day?” Taking another look at the chart above will provide you with a quick reference to see what you are creating each day with your actions, thoughts and words. Choose your words wisely since the energy they carry may not be invisible to the naked eye, but the energy is definitely in motion. If you are going to leave any energetic impression at all, why not leave one that is loving and healing?
Words That Heal
We now have an understanding of the magical healing power of words as energy. Be aware of negative self-talk that is so detrimental to our health and happiness. If you hear yourself saying you are a loser or using some other negative banter to describe yourself or someone else, stop in that moment. Don’t say another word. If you wish to replace that negative word with a high frequency word, or a positive word, that is fine, but it is not necessary. There is no doing needed here. There is only not doing. This is all that it takes to be who we truly are and experience a life that is in alignment with our truth—with love.
I used to call myself names. In fact, I hated myself, though I didn’t realize it. One day, after reading The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, I decided to listen for any words that I used against me. I was shocked. I had no idea I said so many negative things about me and used so many words against myself. With a little practice, I stopped using words that worked against me and now I use words that work in my favor to bring relief, peace and love. See if you can do the same for yourself.
Over the years, science has proven that we can change our DNA with high frequency thoughts and words no matter if we are saying them to ourselves or someone else. This means that we can heal our heart, our body and our life with a shift to higher frequencies. We no longer have to be held back, feel bad about ourselves, get sick and separate ourselves from our loved ones. We can become aware of our frequency and shift it, if it requires shifting, in that one movement.
With awareness, the energy we create and then experience is a now choice. The words we use are a choice and thoughts we have are a choice. And because beliefs are not truths, they are just trained thinking, we can choose not to believe in something that carries a low, or negative, frequency. This is us undoing our training to come into alignment with our authentic, soul self—our deepest truth—that we are love itself. Love is the most powerful force in the universe and every single one of us is that.
