Words have always been used as a tool for creation. If you have ever read the Bible, you may have noted something very interesting in the Book of Genesis and in the New Testament which tells about the creation of our present earth. When the earth was void and without form, the power that we now call God existed as a vapor (spirit, life force, or energy) full of potential, just waiting to differentiate into liquid and solid form that we now know as our daily reality. How did God create the world of dense matter? Through the creative power of words!
First, was the word, and the word was with God. The spoken word was used to manifest atmosphere, bodies of water, water creatures, lush foliage and trees, birds, animals and human flesh. This could have happened instantaneously or it could have happened over a period of thousands of years, but the point is that the spoken word made things happen. Words are the powerful, creative forces by which “something-ness” was brought forth from nothingness. Each thing the spoken word created was given the ability to continue the Request prophetic word creative process by reproducing in like kind, but humans were a cut above. Being made in the image of God, humans could continue the creative process in the same manner as God — by speaking things into existence. From this account of creation, we realize that words contain powerful vibrations. For example, in Genesis 1:3 “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.” With no other tools or building materials, the Creator engineered the very world we live in and the planet we live on by speaking it into existence. Many people do not realize that humans also have the Divine ability to speak and create. For that reason, we take our words for granted.
There is one scripture many folks would rather not deal with because it calls us to be responsible for everything we create. Many devout and faithful folks want to avoid Genesis 1:26 which says “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over all the earth.'” Rule over the earth? That means to be responsible for everything that goes on here and to give an account to the Universe, or God. We are responsible for our own lives and everything we create with our words, thoughts and deeds.
I am always surprised and inspired by the world we live in, the wonders and purpose of nature, the concept of time, and the reason for the existence of each being on planet Earth. When we contemplate on these things, we discover our place in the scheme of creation and we recognize that there are unseen forces at work wishing to communicate with us. These unseen forces are Universal Laws which cannot be broken regardless of whether we believe they exist or not. You do not have to believe in the Law of Gravity, but if you jump off the roof you will not fly like Superman; you will land with a thud. One of the laws of the universe is the Law of Reciprocity, better known as the principle of sowing and reaping which means that what we sow, we will reap. If we sow harmful words, they will produce harmful results. If we sow loving and kind words, we will reap love and kindness. Think of words as boomerangs. What you believe and speak will come back to you.
Getting a Clear Signal
When we empty our minds of social clutter and learn to listen to the forces of nature, and cooperate with the Laws of the Universe, God becomes our Instructor.
The American Indians understood the principles of nature’s symbols, cycles and instruction. They “listened” to the voice of The Great Spirit and then “spoke” the reality to their tribes. They projected these varying degrees of divine intelligence into consciousness through words and rituals and experienced the resulting fruits of the Spirit. They not only heard the voice of Spirit, they respected nature and every being on Mother Earth for they are vehicles for the voice of God.
It is said that we create our own reality in an altered state of consciousness, but I declare to you that we also do this consciously and unconsciously on a daily basis through the secret power of our words. The subconscious mind is the storehouse of everything we ever were and will become. We carry the cellular memory recorded in it. The mind carries spoken messages to every cell in the body; each cell having its own intelligence. For example, we take the beating of our heart and our breathing and sleeping for granted, yet this is one of the mysteries of the subconscious mind.
Look at the Bible Scholar and Sleeping Prophet, Edgar Cayce. He used his spiritual gift of prophecy to give over 14,000 documented clairvoyant readings to more than 6,000 people within a period of forty-three years. While in a trance-like sleep he gave medical diagnoses and remedies that cured people and answered metaphysical questions. This caused quite a stir among the religious folk of his day because it didn’t fit their theology and limited thinking. It tends to be that anything out of the ordinary that we can’t explain with doctrine, is automatically considered taboo before it has a chance to bear fruit.
As surely as false prophets are in the church, true prophets are at our New Age bookstores and psychic fairs. Don’t be alarmed if someone uses divination tools such as Tarot cards, Runes, gemstones or tea leaves to “read” the word of the Lord. The priests of the Old Testament used divination tools called the urim and thummin (probably gemstones) to determine a “yes” or “no” answer in seeking the Lord for guidance. It takes being in tune with your own Divine spirit and intuition to sense the difference between a prophet who hears from God for the benefit of encouraging others and those who are in the business for selfish or harmful reasons. You can’t judge a book by its cover, nor can you judge a prophet by whether his or her prophecies come true.
