We all remember the phrase, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.” Well, that’s a flat out lie! Words certainly have the power to define our reality, to shape personality, and to set up a playing field that can impact the ways in which we navigate our lives.
Comprehending the true power of words should be mandatory for educators, parents, in the workplace, everywhere. Even a basic understanding could alleviate so much pain, hurt, loss, or the fear of failure.
Our perception of reality is based heavily on the input of complex data streams.
If the goal is to impact our personal evolution, we must first consider changing the data input. However, far too many of us are feeding into our human technology (the innermost self), by utilizing the wrong programming.
Imagine for a moment that some form of AI had been given corrupted data, causing it to malfunction or become easily hackable. Or worst case (as portrayed in many sci-fi films), it turns inward, away from programmers, thus becoming a system of war and destruction. After destroying the world that created it, we then ask the operating system “Why?” It’s response, “I’m following my program.”
Well, we’re not that far off from our own internal AI computers, also built on code. The human brain is a remarkable power source. It maintains a similar technology, wired to follow programs and execute them into our reality. Our perception of this reality is based heavily on the input of complex data streams. Most of these streams have been programed into us based on code.
The only thing limiting your happiness and success, is the corrupted data you’ve received.
We’re oftentimes held within a sphere of our own intelligence, meaning we surround ourselves with likeminded people, or those running on similar programs and operating systems. As a result, it can be quite the task to override defeatist programs, especially if those within our circles are maintaining a synthesis of shared, negative data streams. These reinforced data streams pack a mean punch, oftentimes causing severe setbacks in our personal growth. Many of us feel trapped in programs that are not our own, causing pain, anger, fear, feelings of loss, or judgment.
However, what you might perceive as impenetrable, can indeed be rewritten. The only thing limiting your happiness and success, is the corrupted data you’ve received. In other words, your programmers—parents, authority figures, teachers, guardians, and friends might have input you incorrectly.
What was the input you heard as a child?
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The egg represents you–the wide-eyed child, coming into this world as a blank program, and ready to be given data in order to understand this new and wonderous place you’re in. However, the chickens are oftentimes giving you faulty input, impacting heavily your chances of becoming all that you desire. So, to answer the question, I’d dare to say that the chicken came first, as the programmer most often determines the outcome.
What was the input you heard as a child? “You are stupid,” or “You are smart.” “You will never amount to anything,” or “You are a brilliant, lovely child with the ability to move through any obstacle.” We all wish we heard the latter, right? But, how can we expect anyone to have a fair shot at life, when the data is oftentimes corrupted from the start? I’m here to tell you that it’s never too late, as there’s always a light inside the tunnel of consciousness, one that’s able to dismantle failing programs, turning off the ‘tyranny of the mind,’ while reconstructing a better, and more powerful you.
With all the positive affirmations we’re pouring over ourselves, why isn’t much of it getting under our skin?
Many new-age books are filled with affirmations that are intended to reprogram, and direct us away from faulty thought patterns. You’ve heard it on ‘global repeat’ in most of the spiritual, health, and wellness communities, or seen it used by Fortune 500 companies as a means to lift morale, and boost efficiency of their workers. Passages like, “Yes, I am beautiful, I am powerful, I am the master of my destiny, etc.”
With all the positive affirmations we’re pouring over ourselves, why isn’t much of it getting under our skin? Well, here’s an interesting fact in regard to this lexicon. Whenever you say, “I AM,” this or that, you’re making a proclamation of self. It might sound like the right thing to say, however, this is not how we write programs or input data. The correct way to input data is to swap out, “I AM,” with “YOU ARE.”
Contrary to popular opinion, “I AM,” is not a known stream of code into your deep subconscious. It is instead what I refer to as a ‘glaze,’ or a temporary covering of words. Glazing doesn’t have any long-lasting effects, as your operating system cannot receive, or recognize it as anything deep-reaching. On the other hand, “YOU ARE,” is the code that we all recognize, it’s the code we heard as children, from our partners, our friends, family, and co-workers. “YOU ARE,” is the code that resonates, it gets under the skin and into the soul. “YOU ARE,” becomes imprinted not only in the hearing conscious, but deeper into the ‘feeling/knowing’ subconscious.
Whenever you speak to the soul, your innermost-self listens and believes!
We must learn to rebuild our computers within the realm of a more spiritual understanding. However, we can only build what we ‘know’ of ourselves. Some might ask, how can we know? What do I know? You know because “You are!” “You can!” “You will!” Do you see where I’m coming from? Oh yeah, baby! As we begin to hack into our own technology, you’ll see and feel the results.
Start today by rewriting your own code! Tear up those antiquated, “I AM,” post-it notes, and begin rewriting new ones! Begin speaking to yourself in way that your soul understands, takes in, and holds. You are now creating a more cohesive way for your ‘being’ to operate, which will become embedded within your code of awareness, and deepest subconscious. Whenever you speak to the soul, your innermost-self listens and believes! Not only that, my loves, this simple game-changing tool opens a new way for you to see, feel, and to construct your life. Take the power of words back into your hands!
Love you, Tribe!
