Creating Worlds With Your Words
Language is the matrix of creation and connectivity. It is structured intentionality, given ordered form by the geometric will of consciousness. It is the principle that allows for creation’s simultaneous existence as the One and the Many.

As we began to explore in my previous article, words are potent tools of protection.
The last decade (or more) has seen a proliferation of linguistic manifestation techniques, mantra recitation is back in fashion, and personal affirmations are all the rave in myriad communities. This flowering of practice shows that we are building faith in language; we are approaching an experiential knowledge of how important words are.
It is difficult to fathom just how much power language holds. What goes through our minds when we read that “in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God”? Do we truly, unconditionally believe what this phrase suggests, namely that the entire phenomenal world is continually created and sustained by words?
A meta-discussion volumes in length could be spun about the exoteric and esoteric power of language, but we’ll sum things up for now with Terence McKenna’s dictum: “The world is made of language.”
Let’s break that down. When we talk about what something is “made of,” we’re usually referring to the thing’s constituent parts. For example, Democritus would say that the world is made of atoms, and theoretical physicists would say that the world is made of quarks, superstrings, M-brains, or whatever crazy new word they’ve come with to encapsulate what they believe to be the smallest unit of reality.
But what if the world isn’t composed of parts? What if these “parts” of the world are simply relationships between different reflections or versions of the same thing? What if there’s only one part, relating to Itself infinitely and endlessly? Zeno’s paradox. Heraclitus’s declaration that “all is flux,” and the mystical musings of philosophers like Plotinus and Parmenides all seem to point to this conclusion.
Note that in the phrase “in the beginning was the Word,” the actual word used is Logos, which can also be translated as logic, ratio, relation, or relatedness. Following this line of thought, it’s not too much of a stretch to say that “the world is made of language” and “the world is relatedness” convey the same essential meaning.
As such, language is the matrix of creation and connectivity. It is structured intentionality, given ordered form by the geometric will of consciousness. It is the principle that allows for creation’s simultaneous existence as the One and the Many.
Some Ascended Masters and spiritual intuitives call the primal language-grid of reality Keylonta, the Akashic Records, light language, partiki, or fire letters. Scientists call it the unified field, the morphogenetic field, or the plenum. Whatever name you choose, the underlying lesson is the same: Every word that is spoken manifests in the physical world to some degree. Its effect may be direct or indirect, immediate or delayed, noticed or unnoticed, aligned or misaligned, but be assured that every word counts.
This may sound like a big responsibility to carry…and it is. Linguistic awareness and expression is an astoundingly precious gift, and humanity has barely even finished tearing off the wrapping paper – let alone reading the instruction manual.
The point is not to fear that every word that leaves our mouths may be the wrong one, though. Guilt, shame, and regret only contribute to the negativity that is mirrored back to us by the World’s infinitely intelligent action-reaction wiring. The point is to be empowered, inspired, and driven by the knowledge that our words can create worlds of beauty and perfection beyond our wildest comprehension. When wielded masterfully, language can be the ultimate tool of protection, activation, and creation. If you wish to be protected, simply say that it is so. If you want to create the activated life of your dreams, simply figure out what it looks like (don’t skimp on the details), and speak it into being.
Here are some guidelines for achieving maximum leverage when using language:
Always tune in to the intention that you are holding before you speak. Without connecting to the intention behind your forthcoming words, how can you ever know whether those words are accomplishing what you want them to accomplish? Slow down the mind enough to ask “Why am I about to say what I’m going to say?” Feel the answers in your body, and allow your intuition to do its work. This simple exercise can be a fascinating tool for analyzing the underlying emotional and psycho-spiritual drivers of our everyday speech. The answers that we receive may lead to many more questions, which will help you to understand and refine your intentionality…
- Is my intention what I thought it was?
- Was I even aware of having an intention, or was I shooting blindly?
- In what parts of my body do I physically feel my intention?
- Is the physical sensation comfortable or uncomfortable?
- What events in the present are creating this intention?
- What events in the past have led me to have this intention?
- What events in the future are compelling this present intention?
- Is this intention my own?
- How would this intention affect the world if manifested through language?
- What will the world be like if this intention is never manifested through language?
- Who would I be without this intention?
This practice is especially important prior to affirmations or other consciously directed uses of language as a technology for effecting change in external reality. After all, if you want to hit a distant target, it helps to look at where it is before firing your arrow. And since speaking a sentence is more like creating a universe than hitting a bullseye, your aim must take non-linear dynamics into account. This kind of causality is better described by names like the butterfly effect or Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic field resonance. In this analogy, intention is akin to higher-dimensional directionality, and language is the propelling force and medium of transportation.
If you find this kind of self-inquiry interesting, I recommend also checking out Byron Katie’s materials.
Be specific. Whether you’re practicing conscious communication with a partner, setting goals for a professional project, or using affirmations to construct your own reality, specificity is key to attaining observable results. Instead of saying, “I feel upset,” try saying something like “I feel tightness in my chest because of what you said, and it makes me want to close down my heart and stop talking.” Instead of saying “I’ll make a lot of money this year,” try something like “By January 1st, 2014, I will double my current income.” In this second example, make sure to follow up with “I will accomplish this goal by taking the following actions,” and then list exactly what is necessary to meet your own expectations. Once you’ve talked the talk, you must walk the walk!
Speak in the present tense when using affirmations. The Universe is a singular, vast continuum in which everything has already happened and is happening in the Eternal Present. Thus, it responds only to belief structures related to what is happening right now. For example, saying that “I wish to be prosperous” only affirms and reinforces the limited belief that “I am not prosperous now,” and thus keeps my universal template directed toward the outcome that is exactly opposite my wishes. Saying that “I am prosperous now” or “I invoke perfect and unconditional prosperity, now and forever” affirms my personal belief in the present existence of my ideal wishes. As the outer reflects the inner, my external reality will inevitably mold itself to this internal belief.
