Power Words: Igniting Your Life with Lightning ForceI really liked this book. It’s made me so much more aware of my language, not only of the words I speak but also the words that appear in my self-talk (i.e. thoughts).

“Any word you use invokes the exact energy of that word from a very responsive world around you.”

~ Sharon Anne Klingler, Power Words

I’d have never imagined someone could write such a long book about simple words. But here you have it. At 236 pages (plus word lists) it’s not long because it’s full of fluff, it’s because there are so many ways to categorize and use words to take full advantage of their inherent power.

There are lots of exercises included. They provide you with experiential proof that each word has an actual, physical energy. Some words are negative and some are positive, and they carry their own, unique energy whether you’re using them consciously or not.

This book helps you make much more conscious decisions about your thoughts and words and since we use words almost constantly, can have a huge impact on your life and how you perceive it.

Everyday words create your daily reality—both for good and bad. In this sense, every word you use is a power word because each carries its own creative power.

~ Sharon Anne Klingler, Power Words

Word or Use Categories

A few of the categories I’m now much more aware of since reading this book are:

  • Words that trigger action, including commands, declarations, and proclamations
    These are extremely useful, and she gives you great ideas for using them for many different purposes — more than you would ever think of on your own, I guarantee it.
  • Words that uplift

Topics

Some of what she covers includes:

  • Breaking habits of negative thinking/speaking
  • Substitutes for swearing that turn your words into blessings which can effectively turn the blasted … er, blessed … situation around. (See how different those two words feel?)
  • Prayers and invocations, including healing prayers
    I don’t think this exactly fit the topic of this book — it could be it’s own useful little book — but it’s done well.
  • A few words to watch out for that most of us say all the time; yikes!
  • Lots of foreign words and phrases that pack a punch

A Bonus for Intuitives

A rather amazing section is where she shows you how to make decisions using word energy. It reminded me of techniques I learned when I studied with an amazing and well-known psychic (even deputized for her valuable work with a large city police force) to tap deeply and effectively into our intuition.

Within just this one section is almost a book in itself, so if you’re interested in tapping into your subconscious wisdom, this very thorough and detailed chapter alone is worth your time and money. (It wasn’t until after I finished reading and read “About the Author” at the end, that I saw she is one of the world’s leading intuitives. So you’re getting this from an expert.)

Highly Recommended!

In conclusion, this book raised my awareness of my habitual thinking/speaking and gave me excellent ideas for making improvements. With the many exercises and great real-life examples, it was engaging and fun to read. I’m also sure I’ll refer to it in the future for various purposes.

Note: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes and this review reflects my honest evaluation.

Until next time!
