Checkmate

Hierarchy empire,
kings and queens
in days of yore
ruled the peasants
with iron fist,
wrung the gold
from slaves’ sweat,
their inherent
birthrights stolen
away…

“That was in
ancient times,”
I hear your retort,
but no, wake up!
See the deceit,
game is in play,
want-to-be kings
shroud their decrees,
money buys power,
little pawns weep.

Words that Empower Us

Our words and stories are powerful. We must be very careful with them, because they create a positive or negative reality when we utter them.

Focusing on negative narrative keeps everyone’s minds confirming and expanding that reality. Have you noticed? Words used in the current COVID narrative too often leave us feeling weak, reliant, and disempowered. But, we’re not. This is just the story that has been thrust upon us, in this moment. We did not create it, but we are responsible if we choose to perpetuate it. We have the power to overcome this negativity with selective word and thought replacement.

Let’s Program Ourselves for the Positive

Start to create a positive narrative now, by actively using expansive and encouraging language. These words aren’t new; we all have them in our vocabularies. We’ve just been using them much less lately. How is this for a short list, just as a start?

Wellness
Love
Joy
Life
Birth
Creation
Beginnings
Beauty
Adventure
Playing
Cooperation
Abundance
Preparedness
Self-reliance
Independence
Celebration

When we use positive words, we raise our vibration and increase our power, as well as that of people around us. Positivity in our minds and hearts does affect the resiliency of our bodies. It keeps us in a healthier state holistically. We are then in a place of taking responsibility for our overall health, and, envisioning and creating a better future.

Taking responsibility for our words sounds simple, but it is not necessarily easy; it takes some practice and discipline, particularly when others around us try to engage us in the negative narrative. However, this is a fundamental way to exercise our own personal power to create positive change. We’ve got this!
