Do you ever really think about the impact of your words?
As Pagan, one of the first things we are taught is the power of the spoken word, but, do you apply that teaching every day? I'm not judging, because honestly, I know I don't apply it every day, hell, I'm known not to have a filter, but, that "gift" of no filter has caused me some backlash and guilt feelings in my days.
So, again, I ask, do you ever really think about the impact of your words?
I want to brush on one word, a powerful word, a word that can open doors to an incredible amount of information, or open a door to another world, even save a person's life.
That word is, "Hello"
Now, there is one rule to using this magickal word, you have to mean it. If you are just saying it to say it, the power will not be as strong, if the power is even reflected from your lips to the essence of the word. Speaking an empty "Hello" can actually cause harm to not only others but to yourself. If that "Hello" is empty, then what it does is make your soul's doors harder to open, in turn, keeping in the kindness and it starts to rot from lack of oxygen and sunlight. Eventually, the kindness becomes nothing but a mound of waste that only makes the other kindnesses in your soul rot...and so on, and so on. So, in short, your soul becomes a waste mound of rotted and useless kindness.
But, if you mean it, then you have truly touched on a portal that will forever be open to you.
