Wellness: the importance of word choice

Wellness: the importance of word choice

UPGRADE DAY

Every day, we talk and think internally using words, images without giving too much importance to them. However, in her book, The Power of Words, the author Sylvie Provencher proves the importance of words, and this, on all plans. 

Anyone can choose the wrong words and hurt someone without meaning to. We can on the spot of emotion or eagerness irritate a friend, a colleague, a member of his family to whom we speak without however having bad intentions. Hence the importance of words, and of thinking before speaking.

The impact of words 

While there is the semantic side which is intended to be very rational, there is also, for the author, another importance to the choice of words which is on the vibrational plane. Words are also the essence of our being in the same way as thoughts.

Do you ever put yourself down by using unflattering words, calling yourself useless, stupid or stupid on certain occasions? Unconsciously, this choice of words towards you would have a negative impact not only at the time of saying it, but also in the long term. If you drop your cup of coffee one morning and say or think you'll be unlucky that day, chances are you'll attract several goofs. The famous law of attraction. Thus, if before leaving for a job interview, you tell yourself internally that you do not deserve this job, or that the chances are slim, it is highly likely that you will not get the job in question, because without wanting it you will release a set of negative factors.

Conversely, the author gives examples in her book to value yourself internally, to congratulate yourself and to compliment yourself. By immersing yourself in his values, unconsciously, there is a good chance that we will find positive words about him that will make a better impression. By having excellent self-esteem, we will speak with kindness and from our heart, which will be to our advantage. 

Understanding Hypersensitivity

We hear more and more about hypersensitivity. Not because there are more and more hypersensitive people, in fact there always have been, but rather because there are more studies on the subject and we are coming to make associations with various personalities. The Danish author, who is a psychotherapist, also makes a connection between hypersensitive people and those who are introverted. A person can be one or the other, but also both. They are the ones who are often apart or who are wrongly judged to be antisocial. Using personality tests, the reader can better understand their personality type and then learn to live with this difference. 

Hypersensitive people, in addition to being very sensitive to a host of things, are often those who have strong reactions. They reflect a lot on themselves and on life. They are often, more than others, disturbed by noises and even poorly adapted light. They are those who do not like conflict and who are very reactive when they hear about suffering, to the point of having an impact on their mood for several hours or even days. They will be more affected than average by grief, sadness and emotional wounds. Social networks that favor extroverted people can harm introverts who will be more inclined to isolate themselves. Yet introverts and hypersensitives have a host of qualities that simply beg to be tapped into, including their great creativity. The author proposes to make this difference a force for better success in life. 

Self-hypnosis

Do you want to lose weight, quit smoking, be less anxious or better yet, change your life? Hypnosis would be one of your assets to get there according to the author, Jean-Marc Benhaiem. And the good news is that it is possible to hypnotize yourself by applying the techniques in his book. The benefits of hypnosis are numerous. In addition to allowing you to get away from various addictions, hypnosis can be a solution to several health problems, such as migraines, chronic pain, back pain, among others.

Written in an accessible way, with concrete examples, the book explains how hypnosis works. As everything is a matter of emotion and perception, it is possible to change the course of things. First, you have to stop wanting to control or even to understand, the idea being to let go, to stop mental activity and to surrender completely. This is the first step to succeed in modifying one's consciousness and perceptions in order to then modify certain behaviors. But the author warns, to heal or get rid of a bad habit or any addiction, you have to get involved and I would add to be patient. Nevertheless, the game is certainly worth the candle.
