The funny little balloons we see above the heads of characters in the comics are the place we look to see what words the personalities are speaking.
They appear to contain the "message"...the information we are meant to have. And, it is true, they do contain a message...just not ALL of it.
In the same way, the words we speak in real life contain a message but they actually do much more than that...they emit energy, sending a vibration out into the immediate vicinity and even much further on...to the universe.
It's interesting to imagine our words hanging above our heads in a balloon and wonder what kind of impression they would make.
If we could view them objectively, would they appear to be direct, friendly, well-considered, kind?
Would they be slapped together without much thought or consideration for the impression they would create?
Would they notice the beautiful things in life and express gratitude?
Most of all, would they enhance someone's life?
Would it make a difference to someone that WE were there...that the words we spoke felt affirming....showing the warmth of our hearts?
When we make the choice of which words to speak we are also determining what kind of energy we send out. Is it loving energy? Is it truth? Does it take into account the person to whom we are speaking and how that person will be able to receive the message?
Do our words affect someone's life in a positive way? Does the environment feel lighter and more beautiful because of what we have said?
What kind of balloon prints do we really leave in our wake? Are they skirting the air with ease... bouncing and bowing in pleasure and joy?
The effect of what we say lingers long after we have left…to delight or disorient someone's heart.
