Practice Positive Thinking: Watch Your Words Part 8

The words you use are a direct reflection of what is happening within you.  And the words you use have a direct impact on your conscience and subconscious thoughts.  If you are making changes in your life, changing your use of words and phrases is a great place to start and consistently monitor.

I believe this is so important I have broken the list of 12 words from Debbie Friedman’s Cleaning Out the Closet of Your Mind Program into several blog posts.  Every Monday for the next few weeks I am posting about the power of words with a word or phrase to eliminate, why it’s important, and some possible replacements.

This week as we eliminate the words and phrases that do not serve us, let’s consider the use of


When your subconscious mind hears the word “lose” it sets out to find whatever has been lost.  There are times when this could serve you, when you lose your money alerting your subconscious to find it could be a rewarding experience.   However, when you want to lose weight, sending your subconscious mind on a search for those pounds and a few extra does not serve you.

To transition out of using “lose” replace it with a statement of what you want to find.  Transition your loss into a positive assignment for your subconscious or simply a confirming statement.

Here is an example:

  • I have lost 20 pounds.
  • I am lighter and feeling healthier every day.

Read those statements out loud, your subconscious mind heard it needs to find you 20 pounds?  The later statement tells your subconscious you are feeling healthy and want it to continue to seek healthy solutions?

Now it’s your turn…tap the comments link below and please share with me how you are removing “lose” so you can give your subconscious clear directions and assignments.

    What is amazing is I am around a person who is always complaining and always negative. I have learned how to surround myself in light. I also turn their – to positive (yes, it’s possible). See, those people are hurting deep inside. We have to watch what we say out loud, and if we are around a person 24/7 that is always – we must try to focus on light or love – change our words to them and send a love vibration. Great article. Your passion is THIS!! Jackie

    • Thank you Jackie 🙂
      I have also had a few key figures in my life who are the complaining and negative types. It is a challenge, but our light finds a way to shine inspite of our circumstances.
      Yes, you are right, this is my passion.
