Commanding Language, Conquering Dialogue: Perceptions and Pain

  [ 1 vote ]   [ Discuss This Article ]

Commanding Language, Conquering Dialogue: Perceptions and Pain
Reprinted with the kind permission of Celeste Cooper.
 
The words we speak to ourselves have a commanding impact on our emotions and even our physical pain. What I call power words can improve our self-talk when we use them to conquer the dialogue we associate with our pain.
 

The Impact of Words
 
Feelings that destroy our inner language when used with I AM:
  • worried
  • apprehensive
  • guilty
  • fearful 
Action words that improve self-reflection when used with I AM:
  • overjoyed
  • decisive
  • peaceful
  • devoted 
[Excerpt] Cooper, C and Miller, J. Broken Body Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain, Summer Devotions edition, The Power of Language.
 
Speaking Affirmatively
 
Writing affirmations is a powerful coping strategy that improves our self-dialogue. These authoritative sentences reflect a positive goal or characteristic. They can be short or long, but the shorter they are, the more likely we are to remember them. A good example is:
 
I can...         I try...           I will...
 
You can read more about what affirmations do for us, examples of affirmations, and clues for writing your own affirmations on my website at “Writing Affirmatively.”
 
Exercise
 
What power words do you use to improve your self-talk? Grab a pencil and paper and write down three of your favorites. Carry them with you and refer to them when you find yourself slipping off the wagon.
 
Lately, I have been personally put to the test of my own advice; my top three power words today are…
 
empowering  
uplifting
grit
 
“I will keep my mind’s inbox devoid of energy-draining
thoughts by replacing them with affirmations.”
