I can feel my voice getting louder.
Not only with the words that I say to myself but to the words I speak to others. And not necessarily in the volume but in the passion/compassion behind the content.
I’ve become more conscious about the ripple affect that words have on my surroundings, energetic and physical. We all have a language and a tone that carry with them a very large spectrum of emotions. Either we speak from compassion or we speak from fear, and in between those two rests joy, hatred, friendliness, resentment, acceptance, and judgement, etc.
Around us is the reality we’ve created from not only our actions but also from our words. How we choose to speak not only to ourselves but to our family, friends, coworkers, strangers, animals, etc. directly affects the place we are in both physically and mentally.
Our words hold so much energy behind the sounds that come out of our mouths.
Many times I’ve heard people say, “they are just words, don’t take them so seriously.” And while they are just words/sounds, the emotions and energy and intention behind what we speak are what we end up carrying on our backs for so long.
As a mother, I’m realizing how important it is for me to not only speak to myself with kindness but also to use understanding and soft language to others so that our surroundings don’t carry judgments or expectations or fear.
Babies and kids absorb energy in its purest form. When they feel happiness, it radiates from the core of their being. Sadness pours from their whole body just as anger shakes their physical form. It’s a reminder of just how sensitive they are and how sensitive we were before the grind of everyday life desensitized us from this innocence.
We have the power to tune into our own emotions and choose to send out compassion and acceptance. We have a duty to future generations to raise our babies with the ability to understand their emotions and speak compassionate energy into existence.
Because like you’ve probably heard before, “If speaking kindly to plants helps them grow, imagine what speaking kindly to humans would do.”
