As we begin the New Year of 2018 and promise many things we will change about ourselves, we might just go back to the very basics, what we say, how we say it and what it does to our lives. We can memorize affirmations, change our eating habits, promise ourselves we’ll be better with our money but if we can’t get the basics down, unknown self-sabotage continues. The very basic is your sound and how you use it to create a world of beneficial or harmful words.
After many years of working with numbers and sounds, I have come to realize the powerful force of words. In each word are many sounds and these sounds move “particles” into shape and form. For example by just saying the word “one”, you are saying four separate sounds. The ancients knew this and worked with sound energy for healing and manifesting. In fact, they knew that each of us has what I call a “forever” sound or a phoneme. If you know your own sound, you can vibrate the atomic structure of the body into balance and health. Alas, we have lost this ability to recognize our own phoneme or how to say the sound repetitively to balance and repair.
The ancients and indigenous people also could see the shapes produced in the ethers by sounds. Eventually they represented these shapes as their letters of their alphabet. It would seem then that very early languages controlled and represented that which the people were expressing. In today’s modern world we just open our mouths and speak not recognizing what we are creating or destroying. We are out of touch with our own sounds. We have lost the ability to discipline ourselves by what we think and say. We wonder how we have created certain challenging conditions in our lives. We speak of lack, fake news and we speak of anger, rage and despair. We forget about this powerful instrument called the human voice and its ability to manifest both positive and negative by speaking out into the ethers.
I do a great deal of work with clients on the phone. In fact, most of my work is on phone. This is a very powerful opportunity to hear the voice of the client without interference of the physical form getting in the way. In the voice is the harmony or inharmonious quality of the person I am working with. You can immediately hear many levels of energy going on at one time. Some sounds are weary, some angry, some calm, some controlling and a whole gambit of various sounds. One thing we know for sure, we all recognize and respond to ugly, destructive sounds. We have heard much of it over the last year as it has spewed out from those in power and repeated on social media and various television networks. Our country is exhausted from listening to these sounds for the last 18 months. They are destructive and jar on our nerves. This in turn can keep us all on edge. Eventually, the body becomes ill and unhappy from listening to continuous harsh, destructive sounds.
Once we really understand the true power of sound and its creating ability, we can learn to manage ourselves when we speak. It is imperative to think prior to speaking. Our thoughts contain energy that produces sound. How many times have we said to ourselves, I wish I had never said that or I wish I had said this? How many times do we think one thing and say something different. I also suggest people listen to what they say “yes” to. Many of us find ourselves in situations that we never really wanted to be in but we said yes without thinking it through. It might have been better to say “that’s an interesting idea. Let me think about it and I will get back to you tomorrow…or next week etc.” It is part of the management of ourselves.
Remember sound is so powerful that it moved creation into creating. We hear Biblical verses referring to “in the beginning there was the word and the word became flesh”. The interpretation is that in the beginning there was sound and it created various vibrations that formed shapes, particles and the universe. This is just as true today. Be very careful of what you say, the tones you use in saying it and true intention of your words. You will reap what you say. It may or may not be immediate. If you say something enough times, it will become a reality.
Today, more than ever, we need to stop adding to noise pollution and cultivate lovely, healing sounds so that we can appreciate the silence of our own inner wisdom.
Thank you for a perfect reminder as we begin 2018. I’m setting an intention to be aware of the sounds I bestow on the world and to listen for my “sound”. Happy New Year!
Thanks for the powerful reminder Gail. Love and Light to you………….
Hi Gail! Seeking clarification – how does one come to learn their “sound,” their atomic vibration of healing that’s unique to the individual, etc? Is it induced by loving thoughts, words, reading, classical music, etc?
Always, Love & Light!!
This is something that I have been working with since before Karen’s crossing. Shutting out the noise of television, radio talk and social media restores inner peace and the ability to focus on what matters. Without the noise, healing is more easily achieved. Energy can be more easily focused and directed to where it is needed. We can better concentrate our attention on those we are with, or are communicating with. We can more easily really hear and internalize others’ communication with us. Space becomes sacred again.
Thank you, Gail, and Happy New Year! May the feminine of a “2” year help to tone down this incredibly non-beneficial political energy.
Perhaps those of us who work with words are more conscious of their power, but as usual you have added new illumination to this important topic. The historical perspective is illuminating., as is the reminder that forwarding emails is low-tech involvement! Thanks, as always, Gail, for your gentle wisdom. All best to you and your readers for a hopeful new year!
The last line is a great progressive step into our future.
Beautiful – lets keep our voices kind, we get much more with happiness with a sweet voice than we do with vinegar, and much better results, thank-you Gayle for your wisdom and insight to help spread the love!
