A baffling subject that’s been in the news lately concerns a means of surveillance called wiretapping. Without providing any evidence for such a claim, the current president of the United States accused the outgoing president of wiretapping communications in his home and office during the 2016 presidential campaign.
But really, there’s no need for wiretaps. Each one of us is constantly sending out messages by means of our own wiring all the time. The loudest and most easily interpreted form of these vibratory messages is our own words.
Words vibrate out from us. And just like pebbles tossed into a pond ripple out and affect the shoreline, our words have an effect.
Over 2,000 years ago, the Greek philosopher Plutarch wrote:
“In words are seen the state of mind and
character and disposition of the speaker.”
We all have the ability to tap into the true character or motivation of a person simply by listening to their words. When we hear them incessantly speak words that center on themselves, we better understand their disposition. When they say things that seem to be dishonest or deceitful, we tend not to trust the speaker. When a person’s words are hate-filled and disrespectful, we interpret those words as signs of a volatile temperament and it causes us to feel fearful or violated.
We all know the power of words because at one time or another we have felt their impact on our lives. We know that critical words can shatter the dreams of a loved one. Speaking words of doubt or disapproval can destroy a child’s opportunity for a successful future. Belittling or disrespecting an elderly parent or grandparent can cause them to wither emotionally and physically.
Words really matter. But there’s another form of communication expressing through us that’s just as important to tap into if we really want to know what another person is up to. And that is our intuition.
The word intuition comes from the Latin word tueri which means to protect, to watch, or to guard.
Our intuition is that inner voice that protects and guards us by giving us tiny, and sometimes not so tiny nudges about people and situations. Our intuition helps us uncover the true thoughts and motives behind words that are said to us. Sometimes it warns us of negative or dangerous snares, prompting us to turn and run away in the opposite direction. Sometimes it’s like a wake-up call bringing us back to ourselves and our core values as it also reveals the right path to take and the higher action to perform.
So, we don’t need wiretaps. In the same way a computer connects to the Internet, we’re all connected to a communication superhighway which broadcasts through the interchange of words, thoughts, feelings, etc.
Right now in our world there’s a lot of static in the information coming from the political realm and from the media. Your charge is threefold: First, dial into the clearest channel you can. Secondly, receive only those communications that resonate with the coherent truth that’s written on your heart. And thirdly, through your words, attitudes, thoughts, actions and reactions transmit on the highest and clearest frequency you can.
The world needs you.
Stand in truth.
Be love in action.
