“Every word we speak is saturated with energy that will create or destroy. We are accountable for “every idle word” we speak, for it brings forth after its kind. In a very real way, the word becomes flesh and dwells among us and in us and as us. We cannot help becoming what we say we are. The more resolutely and intensely we speak the word of who and what we are, the more surely we move toward becoming what we say. If we happen to accept the words directed to us by others, if we make their words our own, then we will move in that direction as well.
The words you use reflect your state of consciousness, but they are more than that. They are the very cause of the maintaining of that consciousness. So, if you tell yourself, “You messed up again. You really are worthless,” you are not only affirming your present sense of worth, you are setting the parameters of your worth for the future: Today’s words become tomorrow’s reality.”
Richard and Mary-Alice Jafolla, in “The Quest”
