Just a word on the subject of words

I want to share this powerful excerpt from an amazing writer who truly understood what words could do when we take control of them. I changed the rather elderly language for how we speak today.

“So let’s break all the old, bad records in your subconscious mind. The records of the life which you do not wish to keep. Let’s make new and beautiful ones. Speak these words out loud with power and conviction. I now smash and demolish any spoken word, every untrue record in your subconscious mind. These false beliefs will disintegrate to nothing because they were based on false assumptions. I now make my perfect records, to play repeatedly, records of health, wealth, love and perfect self-expression. I will show you how man can change his conditions by changing his words . Any man who does not know the power of the word is not living the powerful life that is his as of right.” – paraphrased, Florence Scovel Shinn.

Every time I read that I say just say “wow, she absolutely got it!”. We can indeed change everything by the power of the words we use.
