What’s in a word?
We know that words have power. As a hypnotherapist, I was taught and have truly discovered the truth in the idea that words are the most powerful influence in our lives. Both the words others say to us, and (especially) the words we say to ourselves.
Brilliant minds have always understood the power of language. Language can harm and heal. Language creates reality.
J.K. Rowling (in the voice of Dumbledore), said, “Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
And of course, “In the beginning, there was the Word…”
As humans, we are suggestible to language.
The words we use to describe ourselves go right to our level of Identity; next to Spiritual (or Wisdom, if you’re atheistic), it’s the highest and most fundamental and influential upon our self concept. (Learn about the NLP Logical Levels here.)
