This Week's Quotation:
Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
~ Don Miguel Ruiz
I developed the self-betraying habit of people pleasing when I was quite young. As a result, breaking that habit and learning to be impeccable with my word has been a great lesson throughout my adult life. I had to learn to pause before speaking to ensure my words did not betray the integrity of my authentic self.
We are living in a time where human misconceptions are being revealed. Efforts to keep the truth hidden have also increased. Yet I’ve learned that having access to the truth and speaking the truth is another of our superpowers—it creates angelic energy fields.
This past year I’ve been struck time and again by the incomprehensible mystery we navigate here in time and space. Certainly, we are all being given opportunities to live in loyal alignment with the truth of oneness and to honor that with our words.
There’s a hunger for spiritual truth. It plants the seeds of higher consciousness. It encourages soulful communication and increases trust between ourselves and others. Speaking the truth lovingly is to sing the song of our soul.
May we all have the courage to honor the truth of unity and vibrationally welcome experiences that vitalize and feed the soul of humanity. Let our words bring the healing power of love to work through us in blessing to all that exists.
