Book: “Power Words” by Sharon Anne Klingler
Book Review by Mary Mikawoz
I just finished reading this book, “Power Words, Igniting your Life with Lightning Force” by Sharon Anne Klingler. Overall, it is very well written and an easy read.
I found that this is a basic book regarding the power of words whether they are affirmations, prayers or trigger words. If you have ever read any material by Shakti Gawain or Louise Hay, then you are knowledgeable about affirmations. Sharon Anne Klingler shows how words and even thoughts are important in that they carry either positive or negative energies. Sharon discusses a number of studies to show how positive prayer affected some patients as compared to the control group.
She compares a number of words by asking you to go into yourself with eyes closed to feel the energy of the word. For example, if you close your eyes and think of a word such as “hate,” you may feel a heaviness in your body, perhaps in your heart area. Then, you are to blow out that feeling and replace it with the word “love.” Again, you may feel something in your heart area but this time it is lighter and not as negative as the “hate” word.
I found that doing these exercises reinforced how negative words ended up showing up in my lower chakras and sometimes in my heart chakra. I found that positive words ended up showing up in my heart chakra and above. There is a direct relationship of feeling between the two energies of the two words.
Doing this feeling work of energetic words in my body was a visceral experience for me. I really felt it in my core.
I have not read any other material or books by Sharon Anne Klingler so I was pleased to see that this book was well-written based on what she said and how she did give case examples of people who have changed their lives while focussing on power words. I found some of the material reminiscent of what Rhonda Byrne talked about in “The Secret.” The difference is that it is not only the word that is followed but also the need to make some action towards the goal or objective. You can not idly stand by and hope your situation will change on its own without some work on your part.
I particularly liked the reference to Dr. Masaru Emoto who photographed water crystals and how they were affected respectively by words. If the words were negative, the water crystals were not clear and in most cases deformed or malformed. However, if the words were positive, the water crystals were beautiful and symmetrical.
I also appreciated knowing which areas the Archangels are responsible for when invoking higher beings to help with your problems.
All in all, after having read and reflected upon this book, I would recommend this book for people who are interested in learning about energies and are new to the New Age philosophies or if you would like a recap or reminder of how important your words are to manifesting your desires.
I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
