Week 17!!!! Welcome back 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. 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.
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 17 – ABANDON
When I pulled this word my first reaction was “What a cool word.” It triggered an image of Gene Kelly, joyously singing in the rain, twirling his umbrella and jumping on lamp posts. Its a fun, exciting invitation to venture into any situation with complete lack of inhibition or restraint.
It took me two or three days to realize this is one of those double sided words. As a noun its energy is bright and vital yet as a verb it takes on a dark, lonely energy. To cease to support or look after [someone]; to desert [something]. This is a word often used when someone has lost trust and faith in others as a result of being ABANDON. So much sad energy attached to its verb form that I can’t help but feel immensely grateful for my first reaction.
I have traveled the road of life long enough to have developed a strong sense of who I am and where I am going. I have left the dark energy of ABANDON and am embracing the brilliance of living my life with ABANDON.
How does the word ABANDON resonate with you?
I look forward to your thoughts.
As always, in light and with love,
