Welcome to my blog. The official site of Word Vibration of the Week (WVOW). My intention for this blog is to create a community where we can share our thoughts and ideas about how words resonant with our energy. I look forward to your comments and our discussions.
Today I pulled the word SELFISH for week 10 of Word Vibration of the Week. For those of you familiar with these posts, please feel free to jump to the next paragraph. For those of you new to my posts here is a brief description of Word Vibration of the Week (WVOW).
I have always been fascinated with the idea that words carry a certain vibration, an energy of their own. My fascination is fueled by the idea that two words having similar meanings can feel vastly different energetically. I wanted to know how particular words landed on other people. Do they feel a word’s individual character like I do? Do other people notice how the words we use, in large part, create the experience we are having? I decided to write random words, 103 to be exact, on pieces of paper. I folded them into little squares and tossed them into a bowl. Each week I will draw a new word and post how this word feels to me, energetically. These words are the basis for my interactive post(s), “Word Vibration of the Week.” I invite you to join me each week and share how each WVOW lands on you.
Week #10 – SELFISH.
Initially, the energy of the word SELFISH lands harsh on me. I think of how it feels when somebody’s wants and desires supersede my own. I feel resistance and a sense of confusion, “Don’t my needs matter?” Truth is SELFISH is a word that, for me, requires delicate balance.
In many ways I know I am SELFISH. I am and have always been a single woman. My first consideration is about me (and my pooch, Lucky). I do what I want, when I want to. As I matured I have watched my friends and family chase career goals, get married, have kids. The whole time I thought to myself “I don’t want to give up that much of my time taking care of other people.” I know it’s important to take care of “others” yet I know it’s equally important to consider my needs.
Webster’s Dictionary defines SELFISH as having or showing concern only for yourself and not for the needs or feelings of other people. I think Webster may have let me off the SELFISH hook. I do care about the needs of others. My life’s work is to empower others to be exactly what they want to be. I know without a shadow of a doubt that a balanced focus on “self” is required to manifest one’s dreams.
How does the word SELFISH resonate with you?
I look forward to your thoughts.
As always, in light and with love,
