WORDS CONTROL YOU
What makes words
You may say " Well, it depends on how someone says them". And if I were to say that's not true, you would probably disagree with me. Think about it, when someone is saying something unpleasant, it won't matter to you what they say, or how they say it, if you ignore them. So that rules out how things are said as the correct answer.
Words control for these reasons
If words can heal disease, they can relieve stress.
You simply allow your emotion to absorb their meaning. For example, if I say something rude to you, you emotionally respond to the meaning of the rude words, and immediately become insulted. If you can do that, you can emotionally respond to a relaxing, word and immediately become relaxed.
It is that simple.
Anger is programmed through accepting the meaning of words that provoke anger. Happiness is programmed through accepting the meanings of words that provoke happiness.
Stress can be relieved through accepting the meaning of words that relax.
I'm going to present you with the following words, penned by Anna Riva. If you allow yourself to feel the words, your stress will lessen, and for some people, it may go away all together.
The following is a prayer. If you think this will not work for you because you don't believe in God. I beg to differ...
Prayer means: a devout petition to God or an object of worship. So your religious beliefs or non-beliefs don't matter. What matters is that you allow yourself to feel the words.
"May this day be blessed with good health, clarity of mind, freedom from anxiety, and a restful spirit. I am an empty vessel that needs to be filled--my faith is weak, strengthen it--my love is shallow, deepen it--my defenses are feeble, fortify them--my fears are many, diminish them--my soul is sore, heal it. Make me to know that all things are possible through love."
