Speaking is an extension of thinking, and thought is power. So, spoken words have power which the average person does not even remotely suspect. Spoken words set to work, and help guide, the subconscious mind. When you come to understand the great power of the spoken word, you come to understand why you would want to exercise great care when speaking.
“Speak As If” is the title of chapter 8 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. Here‘s a quote I use in the chapter:
“Thoughts are living things, and spoken words give to thoughts a body of physical vibrations which makes them still stronger.”
–Walter DeVoe, Mystic Words of Mighty Power, 1905
Yes, spoken words actually increase the power of thought. Spoken words magnify the power of thought. If you have some understanding of the power of thought, you’ll undoubtedly respect the power of spoken words.
Here’s the speak-as-if technique as it is used to attract money: Always strive to speak as if those things you want to be true about your finances are or will be true. It’s a simple concept to grasp; it’s a challenging task to do consistently. The rewards for doing it, though, are tremendous. Consistently use the speak-as-if technique for your money matters and you will begin to have more positive money-related experiences. You’ll attract more money. You’ll also begin to have fewer negative money-related experiences.
As an example of how not to speak, suppose you want to tell your spouse you lost money in an investment. You might say something like this: “The ABC stock took a dive and now we’ve lost thirty thousand dollars. Our overall financial health has taken a big hit and I don’t know how we’ll recover from this. I’m worried. This is really bad.” Those words would likely relay a message of loss and lack of hope to your spouse and to you. They would likely put your spouse and you into negative mental states. They would likely incite money-related fear. And those words would likely cause you to repel money.
Of course, you could instead say something like this: “Stay positive because I know everything will work out fine, but I need to tell you that the ABC stock is down thirty thousand dollars. This isn’t the first downturn we’ve experienced. Loss is part of the investing process. We’ve come back before, and I know we’ll recover from this. We’re learning. We’ll end up being better off than ever. We just need to stay positive and to keep moving forward.” What effect do you think those words would have on your spouse’s and your mental states? Those words would likely help your spouse and you to stay in an abundant, optimistic, expectant state of mind concerning money. Those words would likely cause you to attract money.
That’s just one example of how you can speak in such a way as to make it more likely than not that you will bring about the financial results you want to bring about. Here are a few more examples from my book. Instead of saying “I can’t afford that” or “It’s too expensive” you could say “I’m not going to buy that.” Instead of saying “I don’t make enough money” you could say “I make plenty of money.” Instead of saying “Business is slow” you could say “Business is good.” Do you get the idea? You can likely think of many more examples yourself.
Begin to pay attention to the words and phrases and sentences you use when discussing money and financial matters. Begin to notice which ones will tend to cause you to attract money and which ones will tend to cause you to repel money. Begin to speak more in the ways which will cause you to attract money and less in the ways which will cause you to repel money.
What you say about money reveals how you think about money. Some people believe they think positively about their finances. But if you listen to those people speak about their finances, you’ll get a peek into the way they really think. And it’s often not positive. It’s often far from positive. If people really think positively about their finances, their words about their finances will be positive too.
Not only do your words reveal the way you think, but they also affect the way you think. The words you speak help to mold your conscious and subconscious beliefs. Knowing this, it should come as no surprise to you that the things you say about your finances are the things you are helping to cause regarding your finances. It follows that if you speak of lack and poverty, that is what you will bring into your experience. And of course if you speak of abundance and wealth, that is what you will bring into your experience.
Your subconscious mind translates your words into images which it then uses to create your day-to-day financial reality. You want to always be aware of the kinds of images your money-related words are likely to give rise to.
If you improve the way you think about money, the way you speak about money will just naturally improve as well. And, if you improve the way you speak about money, the way you think about money will just naturally improve as well.
Here’s another quote I use in the speak-as-if chapter:
“Words are a powerful factor in your life; use them wisely, and you will recreate all the conditions about you.”
–Louise B. Brownell, Life Abundant for You, 1928
Speaking as if is an easy mind-power technique to use. This one simple technique (like many of the techniques I teach), if applied correctly and consistently, would transform your financial status. This stuff works. But you must work it. Hour by hour, day by day, week by week, you will improve your money mindset. You will learn to attract all of the money you want and need. You will become wealthy.
