Once upon a time ago, I needed money to pay my shop rent. During that time, I had been the target of my baby father’s mistress’s spiritual attacks (read Tying and Binding post for that story) and things had slowed down quite a bit, where customers were not coming as they used to. I had never owed rent before, even in this case the rent was not owed, but it was coming up, and I did not have it.
It became a worry and I prayed to God for things to pick up so that my enemy (I) would not go through shame. One of my clients, an older lady than me (we will call her Shirley) came to do her hair in my shop and she saw that my enemy’s demeanor was not as bright as it always was and of course she asked why.
I am an Aries, and I am honest and straightforward. It was my business but my enemy was overwhelmed and so I told her. Of course she “awwwed’ and said sorry, and showed her worry on my behalf, however, she went further with some advice.
We were alone in the shop and she told me that she knew something I could do so that the money would come quickly, but I could only do this thing once per year.
Interested, I asked her what was it? And she went on to tell me. She told me that I should read a particular Psalm from the Bible, but it should be read in a certain way, and she used her own voice as to let me hear exactly how it should be read.
She told me that I should be in a certain position and read this Psalm and I would see the money come to me. Before I was to read it, I would petition to God what I needed in humble supplication and then go ahead and follow her instructions.
If the money did not come in three days, she told me confidently, then there was an error in how I read the Psalm or I did not position myself in that specific position.
I thanked her and thanked God for sending her with a solution. I was willing to try anything except going on the back road where all the “girls” hung out with mesh stockings and pumpum shorts and red heels– that I would not do.
The next day I got up and did exactly as Shirley told me. I petitioned for the exact amount (had I been smarter I would I have asked for more). My dear readers, do you know the exact amount of money came to me by way of my father who had come to my shop a day after telling me that he won big at the race track and that he just stopped to give me some of his winnings (he did not know my plight). Dad said that I would always give him race track money, so before going home, he decided he would give a portion of his own to me this time.
I was shocked! The money came. I have never done that ritual again. Never. She had told me that I could do it but only once per year, yet I have never tried it again. Now looking back, I think, I understood unwritten and unsaid words from a younger age, and also there was never greed within me at all since growing up.
There is power in spoken words and written words, however, as the woman that day told me, I had to have the correct tone, position, and overall recital.
Beans are sold in a package and when you look at it, it is just beans, raw and uncooked. However, if the person is skilled, they will now turn these raw uncooked beans within this package, into a lovely dish that is tasty and filling to the stomach. It is the same as words — If a person understands spirituality from its depths, these ordinary words will now be converted into power words that can shift reality.
The beauty about this is that these keys are not known by many, and this is a good thing. Imagine such power in the hands of the wild and untamed?
But ordinary words thrown about frivolously and laced with negative intention can and do affect ordinary people, and this is one of the reasons why when I say anything negative pertaining to myself, I replace the personal pronoun with “my enemy” because words are powerful, regardless of language, and regardless if it is spoken or written.
Speaking of written words… Here is an example from the Book of Numbers in the Bible which shows the power of the written word when a wife is suspected by the husband to be an adulteress and is taken to the priest with offerings, so that the priest (the herbalist) will now bring the woman before the altar and perform a ritual where he writes curses against the adulteress, along with other rituals, to determine whether or not the woman is guilty.
23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water: 24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter. [....] 27 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water (that is, the water which contains the written curse) that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.
Now if the woman drinks this that the priest has pronounced with his mouth and has written down, if guilty, such a woman would have a miscarriage and never be able to have a child again.
I say all this to say that it matters not one’s religious affiliation or non-religious affiliation, there are extreme powers that exists everywhere. Often times people curse themselves when life does not go the way they want it to go, and they become depressed and begin self-deprecations.
Calling themselves “idiot”, “stupid” or “failure”, or even call themselves “broke” or “miserable”, but what they do not know is that every human being on this Earth is constantly surrounded by unseen forces, some negative and some positive, and at the time of their self-deprecations, malevolent forces may be present to seal and sign their fate pronounced by their own words or thoughts.
I gave birth several times and had two C-sections (after having all natural births before), because while in labor, I saw a woman who was out in short time. I asked the nurse why? And she told me that the woman had a C-Section. I then shouted out that I wanted a C-Section next time! (thinking that this would make the pain be over faster). My wish was (unfortunately) granted to my dismay and off to surgery my enemy went the next time. It is always better for a normal delivery.
It is also never good to curse someone (and by “curse” I also include name calling) because such words can also return back to the person speaking it, or to those they love. Always consider to take a higher road, but also know that you must try to use positive words for every situation. To do this affects your own consciousness, your own evolution, your own well-being and inner peace, as well as contributing to the general peace and evolution of the world itself, of which you are a part.
To think, speak, and act negatively, is to oppose all of these things.
Spirits do not communicate in English. English is a common language, which means it is spoken ordinarily and without sacred meaning. The English language is not a spiritual one because it is void of tone. This is why Shirley from the earlier story had to instruct me on how to recite the Psalms, because it is written in English, which when read ordinarily could not command a Force.
In Zion Revival, when celestial beings or other Beings possesses someone, the message is always “in tongues”, a strange language, that will either be interpreted by said possessed person, or another medium will enter possession to translate the message that comes in.
This is because Spirit communicates through sound, and the higher the sound (or frequency), the more the Divine is able to communicate to us. It is the mind of the medium that translates these sounds into images or words that is only closest to what the medium is already familiar with (which can be affected by the medium’s belief system, culture, education, etc.).
You might ask if English has little to no spiritual power, why would negative words and thoughts affect you/others? Remember your whole entire body is always vibrating. Blood pumps through your veins, your heart beats, and your organs are always at work. All of this comes together as your intention when voicing certain words, from once you have life in your body, it is your intention which is the fuel of your words, with the support of your own vibration.
So honor yourself, honor your life, and do the same for everyone else.
To speak destructive words against yourself is not only harmful to your physical self, but is extremely harmful to the spirit within you. It shrinks and withdraws as you take away its crown. It’s mastership that it has come to the world to assist you with is reduced to a meaningful nothing. With a weakened spirit, spiritual growth is more difficult, and physical life even more suffering. The negative words can create stagnancy, ill health, and a negative reception by others who, unknowingly, will read the “cloud” of darkness that is the negativity one has cast upon oneself.
Command your life by speaking positively about yourself and others. Find the positive within another regardless if you like them or not, this will assist your personal spiritual growth.
Use the power of your words wisely.
