The Power of Your Words and How You Can Change Your Life

We have so many superpowers that can immediately change our lives, and yet we do not always pay enough attention.

One of the biggest superpowers we have is the power of our words. We underestimate how words affect our reality.  Working in the emotional health space I have seen how detrimental words can be in that we can carry emotional shackles from the time we are young based on what others have said to us. These emotional shackles can affect our confidence, our belief in ourselves and for many we can be holding ourselves back or keeping ourselves small all based on the effects that people’s words have had on us from the time we were a child.

The good news

As powerful as words can be to create trauma or negatively impact our abilities or trust in self, they also have the opposite effect by appropriately changing words to have a more positive impact.

The words we tell ourselves carry more power than what anyone else says to us. The emotional healing we can get from changing our inner dialogue to a more positive one can almost immediately create a change in our reality.

For example, if you are used to saying “This is so hard”, “It is hard for me to do this”, “Nothing comes easy in life”, then you are essentially programing “Hard” into your subconscious mind and as a result things do feel hard. I know for me this program was deeply coded in me from the time I was a kid. I got to a point in my life where I hit rock bottom burnout and knew I needed to make a change. I tried to change my outer world with no luck because the power of change is within. I then changed the dialogue in my own head and my biggest shift was replacing the word ‘Hard’ with ‘Ease’.

Incredible things started happening once I did this. Ease became my more familiar mantra. When things felt hard, I stopped and said no, this comes to me with ease. Scaling a business with ease, writing two books, raising teenagers etc. all shifted when I shifted the words within my head. This does not mean you will never face challenges however the challenges become growth opportunities, and steps to leap ahead rather than weigh you down or rock your confidence. Changing our words is about healthy living.  It is important to teach our kids this concept so that they understand the power within to create an incredible life. Words hold energy and being mindful of what we tell ourselves is the most self-loving and empowering tool we have.

Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work implies that our intentions and words carry weight and influences the world around us. His work suggests a stewardship of language and thought, proposing that the quality of our interactions could literally reshape the physical world. For example, this image shows a frozen water crystals under a microscope. One influenced by the words “I Can’t Do It” the other with “I Can Do It”.

Power Word Exercise: 💚

Take a piece of paper and outline 3 hearts on your paper.

In each one of the hearts write down your 3 power words you are embodying for the rest of this year.


  • Close your eyes and connect with your breath. Breath in for 4 counts hold for 2, breath out for 6. Repeat this 4-6 times until you feel yourself calm and centre.
  • Let the breath flow with ease and ask yourself for your 3 power words. Let your heart speak to you and don’t question what comes.
  • Write these 3 words down in your hearts, infuse them with love energy.
  • One by one close your eyes and feel the energy of each word in your body.
  • Use your paper as a visual anchor so you can look at your power words each day. This will help to code your subconscious mind.

My 3 power words this year are:

  1. Ease

Words carry energy, everything is energy, hence the power of our words have the power to change things we experience in our lives.
