What happens to the words that come out of our mouth or take form in our mind? I used to wonder often. Sometimes I would see a wish miraculously fulfilled. At others, I would sense my words coming back to haunt me. That’s when I realised that what we speak doesn’t get lost in space. It reaches the Universe. Just like how our mothers grasp all that we think but don’t say, so does the Universe grasp things that we say aloud, or even in our heart.
The secret wish that got fulfilled, the fear that got squashed, the anger aimed at someone that came right back at us, our scathing remarks that taught us how wrong we can be about people we don’t know, the happiness that we unknowingly spread, all of it, heard by the Universe and replied to as and when It deems fit.
That’s how I began watching my words, my thoughts.
You know, sometimes, the Universe gives me such pleasant surprises! There have been instances when I craved for something in my heart, and in a matter of minutes it was in front of me, inviting me to partake of it and fill my tummy and my heart with joy!
There have been instances when something I haven’t wanted, something I feared, came into my life because the Universe wanted me to have it. I learned so much from it, received so much happiness from it. On hindsight, I realised how I would have missed a golden opportunity had the Universe not played its part so well.
That’s the reason I have become so careful of what I think, what I say. One can’t be sure when the Universe might grant you your wish! That’s not to say It always listens to you, or grants you your wishes. There are times the Universe wants us to make mistakes, learn precious lessons, and improve as human beings. But, it does help thinking good things, staying positive and spreading love and happiness with our words.
The Universe is just waiting to bless us. We need to play our part well, too, right?
