"WATCH YOUR MOUTH!"
Despite our protestations, there's something to be said for heeding this advice.
So many of our word choices, emphasized phrases and even speech patterns can reflect how we physically manifest our thoughts.
Don't we all know someone—Our Self?—who repeats phrases like:
I hate it when.... I'm not good at that.
I can't because .... If only....
I couldn't possibly....
It's because of my background....
I call it "trauma talk"—verbalizing an insistent pattern that's not only inaccurate but also hampers our growth and transcendence. It's also another way we polarize Our Selves -- not a hint of gray in these embodied absolutes.
So -- why not shake things up a bit and track your speech?—even your mind chatter for a while?
Does what I'm saying reflect:
A part of me reluctant to change or heal?
A limiting comfort zone?
Dare to remove them, or at least modify them so they are stumbling blocks instead of brick walls. I sense you'll be struck by your self-imposed limitations.
All the talk in the world isn't going to change one breath of your life. Allow Your Self to trust the silence that's the impetus for action.
Talk may be cheap, yet you're paying dearly for it.
