“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” – Dumbledore aka the mac daddy of magic words

And he’s so right – our words hold an enormous amount of power.

When we use them to speak up for those who don’t have the privilege to use them freely – powerful.

When we use them to encourage those around us to rise – powerful.

When we use affirmations to speak our world in to creation – powerful.

And when we use them to gossip, spread fear, fail to use them at all or reaffirm to ourselves stories that hold us back – also powerful.

Our thoughts create our words, that create our blueprint for our individual & collective reality.

I used to think affirmations were bullshit. I never spoke kindly to myself. Because even if I did, I didn’t believe it anyway. Plus who has the time?

Creating lasting change starts with being radically responsible for ourselves. What words are you choosing to create your reality?

Speak the version of yourself you want in to existence. Speak it until you believe it.

Speak the life of your dreams in to existence. Speak it until you believe it. Until your words match your unshakeable belief to take aligned action.

Speak for those who can’t. Shower others in encouragement & help them grow. Be in integrity to your word. Choose your words wisely, remembering the power they hold.
