Florence Scovel Shinn in her wonderfully powerful book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It,” teaches us that our word is our wand.
Dr. Zhi Gang Sha in his book, “Divine Soul Songs: Sacred Practical Treasures to Heal, Rejuvenate, and Transform You, Humanity, Mother Earth, and All Universes,” demonstrates how chanting “lu la lu la li,” meaning “Love, Peace and Harmony,” can change your life for the better.
I had the pleasure of meeting him many years ago in a workshop he was presenting. I felt and knew then, he was a genuine, real master spiritual teacher. He has many books and International Organizations teaching these simple practices of Words. Positive Words. Singing Love, Peace, Harmony. He has recorded many testimonials in his books of all manner of healings, by doing the simple practices of positive, loving Words.
Why are Words so powerful?
The Bible teaches us:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (Psalm 107:20)
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.(Isaiah 55:11).
Our Words are very powerful because we are Divine Children. We are Creators. We are Love, and Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Affirmations and chanting positive Words align us with our Divine Source our powerful thoughts, and keep out fear, doubt and negativity that we don’t want in our Reality. Aren’t you most happy when you are creating? Singing, dancing, writing, gardening and being the Love that you are creates worlds.
When I am in a negative space, anger or doubt, disappointment or hurt feelings, I know I don’t want to stay there. I choose, as quickly as I can, positive “I am” statements. “I am Love. I am Peace. I am as God created me: perfect, whole and complete.” After a time, I can feel the inner Peace that allows the good ideas from the Divine to flow in. Solutions to the problems causing the upset arise. Rest from the worry allows the healing light to come in. Little by little I see my part in the conflict and can forgive and move on. It really is that simple, though sometimes we are caught up in our “rightness,” which makes it seem not easy. Even one thought in the right direction can bring us to our peace, because peace is always available to us. Esther and Jerry Hicks, in their many books on the teachings of Abraham, tell us it only takes 17 seconds of positive thinking to redirect yourself into the positive flow of wellbeing.
Since we have been created out of Love, and we are still Love, let’s Love ourselves, our friends, our enemies and our Creator. What a concept. Let’s see what will happen when we do.
