Ever heard of the expression 'sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never harm me'?
Do you agree? Can words harm us?
Negative self talk IS harmful to us, the story we continue to tell ourselves becomes our reality. The brain does not distinguish between what is real and what isn't (waking versus sleeping state)- the language we use with ourselves is invariably the reality we continue to attract.
Whether or not you believe in law of attraction or manifestation, one thing is scientifically proven. We are made of energy. Our words and thoughts are transmitted by our energy, conscious or unconsciously we are magnating people, things, situations to us. If we think from a place of lack we get more of it, if we think from a place of potentiality we get that.
Which would you rather have? Lack or potentiality? Which gives you more hope, energy and optimism? Words have power - undoubtably. The words you tell yourself, the words you use to express to others and the words that others tell you. If you hear them often enough you are likely to be those words.
To overcome negative self talk takes practice. Affirmations that you say become more powerful as you feel them; self exploratory, self enquiry, self reflection and self awareness are necessary for us to become in tune with our language.
