We’ve all heard of and seen people blurbing stuff on Facebook and other social media which they shouldn’t have, and have gotten into trouble for. I’m not the type of person who wishes to share my personal life in all its moments on any social platform, but I understand why it’s important for others, but you have to remember that people who read what you’ve written, see it through their rose-tinted, or sometimes (really) dark glasses, put 1 and 2 together, end with 13 and then pass it on with their spin on it, or comment out of fear, insecurity or boredom.
So sometimes things end up where you haven’t even thought of or would never think, because of other people’s interpretation, perspective or just plain bad manners.
This is why “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz is how I like to live by, and in this case – to be impeccable with my word.
Words have power, their vibration creates energy, as Dr. Masaru Emoto so beautifully illustrated with his photographs of water crystals formed by the words spoken to them.
I can literally feel the energy of words spoken to me and sometimes they hit me like a hammer, so I’ve experienced this first hand.
So be careful how you say something and why. Think first…don’t just blurb. You are affecting those around you on a very tangible level, and if you write it, it has an even more lasting effect and can be misinterpreted…so make sure you mean it and it comes from your heart, not your emotions.
Be Impeccable with your Word
