Words As Spells

Sep 06, 2021

Words are powerful. This saying has been around for ages. We’ve heard it so many times that it’s become part of the background. Its meaning doesn’t register when we come across it in written form or when we hear someone say it. Not fully, anyway. Not in a way that makes us stop and consider before choosing what to say. But what if there is some truth to this saying?

What if words are much more powerful than we ever imagined them to be?

 This might not be a totally new concept to you, especially if you’ve dabbled in the self-help arena. The idea that how we talk to ourselves – that critical inner voice that surfaces during all sorts of situations – and how it reinforces a heap of damaging, negative programming is explored in therapy everywhere. Some examples of this type of self-talk are:

  • I’m too fat/skinny
  • I’m too tall/short
  • I’m such an idiot
  • I never do anything right
  • I never have enough money
  • The pain in my knee will never go away


All of these words are taken in by our subconscious, and because the subconscious can’t distinguish fact from fiction, it takes them at face value and begins conspiring with all of the subtle bodies to make these statements our reality.


But what if there’s more?

What if words are spells?

What if by uttering them, or hurling them in anger, or reciting them in reverence we’re actually initiating a reaction or creating a situation that sets something into motion that binds us, traps us, or has the potential to impact us in ways that we haven’t been taught to perceive?


What if words, along with the energy of the intent behind them, have the power to create energetic bindings that are not bound by time and space? What if the promise to “be yours forever” creates an agreement between you and the other person where you are now energetically tied together? And not just in this lifetime, but in lifetime after lifetime … as long as this vow remains in place?


Here are some everyday examples:

  • Till death do us part
  • You’ll always be mine
  • I promise to love and honor
  • Forever and ever
  • I curse the day you were born
  • I promise to always have your back
  • I promise to obey
  • I promise to be yours forever
  • We’ll be best friends forever


When viewed in this light, everything takes on new meaning. In a traditional marriage vow, reciting “till death us do part” is commonplace. If, down the road, you decide to split up, you’re free and clear once it all becomes final, right? Not so fast. You’re still energetically tied to your ex-spouse because of this vow.


Maybe your best friend is someone you swear you’ve known forever; you do everything together, and you love your relationship. Or, maybe there’s someone who shows up in your life and gives off vibes of wanting to hang out and be your friend, but you’re not feeling it. She keeps hanging around, commenting on your social media posts, trying to get in your world. Here’s where a promise of “we’ll be best friends forever” takes on significance. It doesn’t matter if the promise was made yesterday or in 1322 … the energetic binding will keep it running – and you in each other’s orbits – until you have the awareness to choose otherwise.


Let’s look at it from a different angle. Say you had a lifetime where you were a nun or a monk and took a vow of poverty, or a vow of celibacy. This is common practice in these vocations and was most likely appropriate for the beliefs and worldviews of that timeline. The problem is that the vow isn’t limited to just that lifetime; it recycles, repeats, and plays out in all lifetimes, even the one you’re living now. If this is you and you took this vow once upon a time, you might see its impact in any number of ways. Maybe you just can’t seem to get ahead no matter how many financial strategies you put into place. Or, maybe you have trouble holding a steady job, or your credit cards are always maxed out. Maybe you move from relationship to relationship, or maybe your love life seems to be on permanent hiatus. The energy of the vow continues running in your fields, showing up again and again, until you revoke it.


Awareness is key.

When we know better, we do better, right? And we work to unwind all of the oaths, vows, curses that are still impacting us in this life.
