Power of Positive Prophecy

How many times do we walk around and make statements that are negative in nature and then find ourselves surprised when the outcome is exactly as stated.  Do you realize that every time you verbally state a point of view, a declaration (positive or negative), or a prediction, you are actually prophesying the future for yourself.  So many times these statements are made without any forethought or idea of what we are even saying.  I once had a friend who boldly declared ….”that WHEN I have cancer…”.  I was taken aback when I heard her words.  When I pointed out to her what she had just said, not if she ever was faced with cancer, but WHEN she will have cancer, she was surprised that those words came out of her mouth.  She wasn’t even aware she had said them.  How many times do we do this to ourselves in any given day.  We declare a disasterous outcome as if it is a given.  The Power of Prophecy is so incredible that it can make or destroy a life.

In her book, The Power of Positive Prophecy, Laurie Beth Jones explores the impact our words leave on children when they are told what will become of them in the future.  If the statement, or prophecy, was either positive or negative, if left an indelible mark on that child’s brain (and soul) and was the impetuous for their success or failure in life.  The words were so impactful that they subconsciously strived to make that prophecy true in their lives.  The words didn’t even have to come from a family member, although the words that we tell our children are the most devastating ones in their lives.  A child who may never had any encouragement from their homelife but had one person in their life that believed in them and told them so made all the difference in that person’s future success.  The individual in many cases were teachers, coaches, a neighbor or even the parent of a friend. 

Can you imagine if you could make one honest positive statement or compliment to one child and know that your words would map that child’s future. Wouldn’t you feel empowered of such a feat?  Well, you do have that ability.  This is not just true of children.  Your words can dramatically impact another’s life.  In the study of those that were considered child prodigies, where an innate and exceptional talent manifests at a very early age, just enhancement of those skills and talents would not have been exemplified if there had not been at least one person who prompted the child’s natural inclination of that talent.  When you are told you are very good at something and you see reward from enhancing those skills you can become expectional in your performance.  If,  however, you are told that you are not “good enough” those same skills will be hampered by ever developing to their fullest because of the belief that you are NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Once we become really aware of how powerful our words are, more thoughtfulness of what we say should become our way of living.  Imagine what a life you could create for yourself and for others if you became really aware of how powerful your words are.  If you truly believed that your words could change your world wouldn’t you become more careful of everything you said (or at least try to be careful of everything said).   Wouldn’t you be more careful about the criticisms you say about yourself if you believed that your words were self-actualizing your future?  Of course you would or would you?
