I have held for years that language is tremendously powerful. It influences how we think and even how we feel. And because it has such a strong influence, it also alters our actions. Political leaders have known this for a long time and I hate to bring up the election campaign now, but anyone who has been following it, can see how language is affecting everything in this campaign. That is why I continually urge people to vote from a place of love and not fear.
At any rate, to get back to the main point here: today I cam across an article that seems to validate everything I have felt about language. I know that when I speak a different language, I think differently and feel differently. And, when I use words of love and kindness, they alter my day.
This scientific article goes on to validate much more: the power of affirmations, group thought and actions – even our health are all affected by language because language affects our very DNA. None of this surprises me. But I am terrifically excited to see all this in print. It also makes me very excited about the future. We live in a world of tremendous possibilities. The evolution of our very souls is accelerating.
