Did you know that our childhood magic word “abracadabra” is from the Aramaic abruq ad babra, which literally means “I will create as I speak?” The idea was to give voice to a desire, say the magic word, and it would appear.
Apparently that’s how it works. What we say creates our reality. I guess we’d better monitor both our words and our thoughts.
Everything is energy
In our human form we experience and understand very little of the Great Mystery. In many of the world’s spiritual philosophies each person is thought to be collectively dreaming. Therefore each person can, with awareness and an act of will, change the dream.
What kind of dream are you creating with your thoughts and words?
I can. I can’t. I deserve. I don’t deserve. It’s hard. It’s easy. Whatever you tell yourself, that’s what you‘ll get. So a major step to begin to change your life is to become aware of what you’re thinking and saying.
Change your thinking, change your life!
Phrase your affirmation in the present tense
Begin to speak in affirmations. Not “I’m going to…” but rather “I now….”
I learned this practice as I studied to become a practitioner in the Center for Spiritual Living. One time, when I was first learning to speak positively all the time, I was asked my opinion about a carpet that I really didn’t like very much. I knew the owner was pleased with it, but it was far removed from my taste. It took me a long time to offer a comment because I had to sort out all the negatives that were my first response in order to find one positive thing I could say.
As I practice speaking more positively, the positive observations are now the first ones that showed up. And I’ve become sensitive to what people actually want to hear rather than what they ask.
Modify your vocabulary
I don’t like to use the word “compassion” because it makes me feel “pity”. I prefer “empathy”, which means we are equals on a similar plane of understanding.
“Inclusion” is more common in my present vocabulary as the need for it grows more prevalent. What does it mean? How do I practice it? What do I need to change within me to become more inclusive?
Be aware of how your choice of words will be received. The more unusual my exploration into various forms of spiritual philosophy, the more cautious I am about who I share them with. “Metaphysics”, “Shamanism”, “transpersonal” are not part of everyone’s vocabulary or realm of understanding.
Believe it can happen
You need to believe that change/healing/opportunity can happen. I’m working with an age-related eye degeneration for which the world says there’s no cure. Every day I have to work on my belief. With each wholing work I do on myself I also have to send energy to my belief. The spiritual world says it’s all energy and energy can be shifted. So in order to make my “abracadabra” process work, I have to believe what I say with my whole being. “My eyes are perfect and whole. I see clearly, especially on the physical plane”.
Look for any doubt that lies behind your abracadabra “I create as a speak” and rephrase it so you believe is. “My eyes are healing.” “My eyes are healed.” Better still “I see clearly.” Remember to word your affirmation in the present tense. Then believe what you say.
DEEPER SONG PROCESS
– “I create as I speak.” Choose something you want to change, something you’ll notice when it does change.
– Create an affirmative statement in the present tense as if it has already happened around what you want to change. “I am whole.”
– Say this affirmation out loud seven times each day.
– In seven days, notice what changes have occurred.
– In 21 days, notice what changes have occurred.
– Repeat as desired.
