Sending the right messages goes beyond the traditional concept of “saying the right thing”.
We all use different tools for communication:
- Body language/expressions
What the … are you talking about?
One of the most impactful phrases I ever read is part of Don Miguel Ruiz’s book “The Four Agreements”: Be Impeccable with your Word. What do you say? What do you mean when you say it? The words you use have power in them. And I’m not the only one saying this. Did you ever hear of the study regarding plants and bullying? The language we use has an intention, a frequency, and emotion connected to it. Do you know the real meaning of the words you use? Do you understand the background around them? Your words can heal or hurt. Words are powerful things!
Have you ever been kissed by a rose?
Well, maybe not a rose, but a soft caress is quite different from a slap on the face, right? Your body, your gestures, and your touch are also sending messages. But, again, are you sending the right messages? Are you making sure that your body and your mouth are in sync? Furthermore… are they really aligned with what you feel and think?
It’s not what you said, it’s how you said it.
Probably one of the most common quotes used by women and sensitive beings worldwide. Yes, we are all capable on picking on the tone and intention behind what we hear. Have you ever felt your skin react to a wonderful movie or an amazing song? The feelings behind our communication are important. Are your feelings sending the right messages?
It’s as if you could read my mind!
Just as it happens with emotions, our thoughts can go beyond what our words and body language are saying. Just like plants and bullying, there’s a very interesting study by Dr. Masaru Emoto on thoughts and their energy. Your thoughts can be “read” in many ways. Your thoughts “imprint” their energy in the language you use and the messages you are sending. So again, I have to ask, are you sending the right messages?
All on board!
When you are in alignment with your values, your thoughts, your feelings… Then you don’t have to second-guess and make sure you are sending the right messages. The more you practice being who you truly are, the more you know you are sending the right message with your words, with your intentions, and your actions. Whether it is through a word, a piece of music, sound, hug or handshake (God! Do we miss those during lockdown!); you will say what you mean and mean what you say.
Why am I writing about this?
Well, my blog posts are focused on marketing, branding, and business practices with soul. What would it be of your business if you aligned all of your communication with yourself? I can tell you! It would thrive! At least if you have built a set of solid heart-filled values around you! If the title of this blogpost caught your attention, I am sure it was because I placed the right intentions and emotions, and not just keywords, to get to you! I also want to share this, because we all spend more and more time online these days. Sharing our thoughts, emotions, and a lot of information we did NOT create ourselves. So be mindful, you may be helping the wrong message spread. Or, you have a chance to send some healing messages around!
