It is written.
The words one chooses. The words that define form create certain responses in our minds. Words can hurt and words can heal. Words can separate and words can unite. Words are sign posts to the language of the soul.
Breathe out tension
Language is an incredible gift. It allows us to express. When we feel stuck, blocked, unsure, spoken words and written words can help release that tension and rationalise ones experience. Journaling is a powerful way to transform, reflect and release. If you can't sleep, get up and write down everything that is keeping you up. It'll take the tension out of your mind. Writing a journal and practicing being grateful is a great way to relieve tension through word.
"Gratitude opens the door to the power, the wisdom, the creativity of the Universe. You open the door through gratitude" - Deepak Chopra.
Be mindful of the stories one tells oneself.
Words help us create. Words have a special power. Ask yourself what it is in your heart that is not in your reality. Write it down, put it in to the present tense, speak these words to yourself everyday and watch the magic happen.
