Hi there bright soul!
So alright--I will! (I am imagining your applause and taking a bow)
I have a confession to make--on some days, I am so tired that I am dozing off while writing the posts. But then I wake myself up, because I know you would be waiting. If my writing can make a difference in even one person's life, I am not going to let you down. I am fiercely committed that way, once I give my word. I always keep it up, no matter how hard it is.
Today something nice happened. Out of thousands of artists who are taking part in Sktchy's #30faces30days challenge, the portrait I made got picked to be displayed on the home page. That's a huge honour. Here's what I made today:
Those amongst us who are plant lovers will vouch that the caption in this artwork is true. I know my plants can 'sense' me. It is not something I imagine or project. I truly can 'see' the plant's happiness, when I am around and I water them.
I don't know if you have heard of the experiments which many conducted where they got two identical plants. One was spoken lovingly to and the other was bullied and yelled at. At the end of 30 days, the one which was spoken to positively flourished, while the other one didn't do well at all.
You can read one such experiment here and yet another one here.
For it to be scientifically accepted, the experiments would have to be replicated thousands of times in controlled lab conditions and it is hard to do this.
I for one, do not need any scientific proof. I instinctively know this, as I can SEE it, and FEEL it.
Words definitely have a power to affect energy. Words have a power to change us.
Words are magic.
I have experienced this over and over. I have manifested so many things, only by thoughts and words.
We have to be very careful with out words, with our narratives, with what we tell ourselves. We have to treat ourselves like how we treat a valued friend.
Example: If we accidentally drop a glass and it shatters. our immediate reaction usually is "I'm such an idiot..How could I?' we berate ourselves internally and for most of us this process is automatic,
If a friend of ours dropped and shattered the glass, we would immediately say 'It's okay. it's just a glass.'
Starting now, I want you to watch your internal chatter. What is it that you tell yourself? Do be aware.
I do love hearing back from you but do leave me your thoughts only in the comment box on my blog please, and do not dash off an email in reply.
( Though I keep saying this over and over, many mail me. I have decided not to read or respond to the emails simply because they add to my workload of sorting through hundreds of mails I get and they steal my time. When I blog, I have dedicated a block of my time for this, and it is easier for me to reply to all comments in one place. Also, it irks me because I have requested politely and people do not oblige. If they can't do this little thing I ask of them, then they don't deserve my time or attention.) *end rant*
If you are leaving comments in my comment box, then please ignore the above para. It is not for you!
Do you believe in the power of words? Do you believe in manifestation. I would love to know if you manifested anything. I look forward to your comments.
I shall reply to all the lovely comments, left on yesterday's post soon.
See you tomorrow!
Till then, say some kind words to yourself!
Lots of Love
