    When I use words with intention, I feel more solidly rooted in and informed by what is true for me, ideally beyond that moment. Then, whatever the response or outcome, I can let it go I, knowing I have given my best.

    I was trained as a nurse to try to explain care and experiences using positive words, even when circumstances were dire. To encourage in the face of sorrow, fear or tragedy. I notice this tendency remains with me as I carry on conversations now in my retiring years.
    I also learned somewhere along the way to consider using “and” instead of “but” when speaking, regarding two possibly opposing situations. I think of this as letting both circumstances stand without diminishing the first. “Your work in this area is progressing well AND we’ll continue to focus on this area where you are having challenges.”

    Intentions usually have lots of thoughts, and emotions behind it. This can equal to power behind words used with intention. Whatever you say intentionally will come across powerfully to those that are aware and sensitive to the nature of what you are saying.

    The people I deal with are often a minefield of emotional time bombs. I defuse my reactions when I focus on what will be the most helpful. I feel like I’m wrapped in a weighed blanket.

      Wise approach. ‘Words’, all words are elementals carrying the Desire – though or Thought – desire of their creator. I use a bright white egg shell shaped, full body protection, cloud myself. It allows the positive thoughts to pass through but stops and de-energizes the non-positive. I that way I can more assuredly emmet open Positive constructive words – thoughts myself from within that luminous white shell, Also I can maintain easily maintain positive only thought in that shell and they pass on freely to the outer-ness .

    When I use the word intention, I find that my view of myself softens. Guilt lessens, self-criticism is soothed, and a sense of peace increases. With intention, I’m also able to extend positivity to myself and others, and gentleness is felt.

    “Think before you speak.” Wise words from my father. Did I listen?? Not always but I am better at it now. 🙂

    Understanding

    Words are very important to me. It takes me a long time to process answers to questions, to write posts on Facebook, sometimes even to make a list (especially if it’s too be shared with others). Misunderstanding happens so easily. I’ve been told, “Just say it…!” My husband finishes my sentences or supplies words for me while I’m thinking of the word(s) of my choosing. I know it is frustrating for others. But words matter.

    I am constantly amazed at how I agree with everyone’s answers, and often find them better than what I have to say.
    I would only add to everyone’s comments that when I speak with intention, I slow down and am more aware myself of what I am saying. My wish is that when I do speak, just like others have said, I do no harm to anyone. I try, but that doesn’t always happen. It is something I would like to get better at doing.

    Working on being a better listener has helped me in turn use my words with more intention. Intention fosters a more meaningful dialogue with others.

      Thank you, sizaah – ‘working on being a better listener’ is something I need to do 🙂

    Much depends upon what my words, and intentions, truly are.
    Words can heal, encourage, guide, inform, teach, question, connect, and lead to so many other positive things. But – words can also hurt, discourage, mislead, misinform, ridicule, spread divisiveness, hate, anger, and result in much waste and destruction of people and things. The very same words that are helpful when used with good intent can be very hurtful when used with ill intent. So one’s ultimate intentions will determine in large part what results from the particular words used…
