Conscious Sounds

Conscious speech has the power of invocation. We can literally create reality through the power of our words. Every word we speak is an act of creation, yet we may not understand our own power.

Breath is God’s gift of life, and when we use it to utter sounds, those sounds carry the creative power of the universe within them, setting up a chain reaction in the cosmos. Everybody knows the saying, “Be careful what you pray for, you’re liable to get it!” That’s good advice.

It’s also a very good idea to be conscious of what we say all the time, because the words we choose plant vibratory seeds that sooner or later must sprout—for better or for worse.

Having a mantra going on in your head, or out loud, allowing your breath and all the rhythms of your life to “chant God’s Name” is extremely practical advice.
