Expressing your sense of joy, appreciation, thankfulness or gratitude has a greater effect than simply making a relationship work more smoothly. Think about this: God “spoke” and creation was the result. He spoke and there was light, the planets and stars, living things in the sea, the air and on land.
What happens when you speak joy?
One researcher looking into sound and its effects upon substances is Dr. Masaru Emoto. To view some of his research, click here. 70% – 80% of your body is water and water vibrates to sound…even sound that is below or above your hearing threshold. Your thoughts and intents create sound frequencies that you cannot hear but they have an effect upon your own body as well as the bodies of those around you.
The photo of the effects of “thank you” versus “I hate you, I’m going to kill you”and the photo of the effects of heavy metal were all very dramatic. Many times we say nothing, even though we feel gratitude and thankfulness. Doubtless, that is not without effect, but I would think, to speak would set an even stronger sound frequency into motion.
Imagine the beauty you could create in your family, friends and colleagues, or the damage you could do with hateful thoughts and words. It is no wonder the Psalmist asked the Lord to put a watch upon his lips! Psalm 141:3
I was struck by another comment in this video (click here) Please view past the beginning to the presentation. (David Lee in not really my favorite!) The comment was that “particles are held in formation as long as the frequency remains the same.” If you remove the frequency it essentially falls apart. Is this so different from Act 17:28, “In Him we live and move and have our being.” We are here because God called us into being and sustains us. Pretty amazing.
I want to align, spirit, soul and body, with the creative power of blessing that comes constantly from God so that I might reflect His purposes into my family, church and community. How about you?
Action Step: This week don’t be shy and keep your feelings and thoughts inside. Bless someone out loud and set up a strong positive frequency they can vibrate to for a long time!
We would love to hear what you created by your expressions of thankfulness and appreciation.
May your joy be full, Chris & Carol
