If the written word is more powerful, why? How does it work? For instance, I give thanks for things that go well during the day and also I show appreciation saying 'I looooove this!' as many times as the opportunity presents during the day. Would there be some significant difference if I write these things down? What is the process involved in that?

Thanks in advance!

Here's an exerpt from 'wealth beyond reason' about writing things down:

  1. Writing things down brings your desire Into physical form

  2. Writing helps you gain clarity and further refine your desire into something you absolutely know you want.

  3. Writing allows your desire to stand alone without being surrounded by the clutter that normally exists in our thoughts regarding what we want.

I guess it works the same for writing a gratitude list.saying that if you can find things to appreciate in the moment throughout the day it would be a more powerful practise than spending 20 minutes a day recalling all those things for a gratitude list:)

I have been an avid reader since I was 7yrs old ,think how powerfully books conjure up emotions and pictures in your mind , how you feel like your right there and if it's a good read , how like me sometimes you stay up all night reading it to the end :-) I read a while back that "Words contain a Power Germ which expands and projects in the direction your word indicates and ultimately develops into a physical expression.The Bible says God is the Word and the Word was with God,good enough for me

I don't think there is a process, as such, involved BJ09. For me writing things down gives me more clarity and especially if an insight pops into my mind... if I don't write it down, I might lose it later.

I have a journal I've labelled What I learned today that I've been keeping for almost 2 yrs. Although I don't write in it every day I do a few times a week and occasionally when I go back and peruse some of the entries, it never fails to amaze me some of the insights I've gained. Although I do remember quite a few, without this written record, I'm not sure I would have absorbed as much.

I also think a gratitude journal is priceless because it really does place your focus on the good things in life and if done at the end of the day, it's a nice thought to go to sleep on :)

I think as well it cultivates a sense of discipline, if you can make it a practice, which can be advantageous if you're anything like me and tend to procrastinate now and then :)

A friend of mine said this, actualy my friend ursixx from this site. Said that the written word is soooo much stronger way that the spoken or thought. I never really bought that. I asked him how it is for people like me who don't read or write very well. He said to try, and I did.
I am now writing a book about my channeled sources information. and also transcribing all of the sessions we have done. Now I have listened to all these sooo many times ! But after a friend wrote the very very 2nd session I ever shared publicly, i read it. At that moment, wow!!!! i was so so impressed .. I felt the physical chill down my back! It was such a great way to finally see how my friend was right after all!

love n light,

you are using more of yourself when something is written as opposed to just being thought,
the process of composing words to match what you are thinking forces a complted subject, action word and object.
it may matter more to you, the creator of the thought, than to a listener;
willed, thought and acted upon.

What do you think happens to your thoughts? They go out into the universal consiousness. There is not one thought ever thought that is not captured (therefore be careful what you think).

How does it make you feel when you think these thoughts of gratitude - does your energy level rise and you feel good? That higher energy affects everything around you.

Its a positive thoughtform that affects your vibration and that in turn affects all other things around you in a positive manner. This is a great thing. If this is how it makes you feel keep doing just what you are doing.

what if i tell you that all your though are seen and recorded and affect this world and affect you and people around you? what if i tell you that someone looked at me with bad though and i said with though you will get what you deserve and 2 weeks later he got arrested.

Jeremiah 17:10 "I the LORD search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve."

so experience and enjoy.

no i did not know him or annything about him before that bad though. so no it was not something that one could predict as a natural outcome of probability. he was a wolf hiding in sheep clothing.
