Admit it. You say it and/or have said it. In my younger years, I swore that I was a sailor in a past life.
I have cleaned up my language for the most part long ago, but still sometimes that F Bomb slips out. Some people believe the word and other similar words have lower-level vibrational energies.
Backstory: The F Bomb was never to be said anywhere when I was growing up. I had the guts one time to say it at the dinner table. My dad had a reach like no other. I never said it again in his presence.
I grew up though and when I would say it in my own house, my dad chided me saying that my kids would use the language. I didn’t believe him. Guess what? They do and at this point I’m OK with it.
I have always said that regardless of what word one uses, it is the intention, the energy, behind it that counts. One of my master teachers disagreed with that idea, hence the curbing of my language.
Think about it – if one uses the F Bomb with anger, it is a lower-level vibration. On the other hand, if someone says the F Bomb with laughter, perhaps with a funny joke, I believe the vibrational quality is higher.
What about saying the F Bomb and having no energy around it?
Not too long ago, Tom Brady did an interview with Howard Stern and used the F Bomb in passing on several occasions. It was odd hearing it from him, but his intention was not of a lower-level vibration.
On another level, what if the F Bomb is said inside one’s head, not spoken out loud? Or written? Again, it’s the intention, the energy behind it. It’s not even just the F Bomb, it’s any word or words put out with negative connotations – hate, envy, fear, greed, etc. Think about it. Be mindful.
I shared with my daughter the other day what grandpa once said and her thought process is ‘as long as my children do not swear at people, I’m fine with it.’ I thought it made sense and I liked it!
The apple doesn’t fall from the tree!
P.S. I’ve had enough of writing and saying the F Bomb in my head for quite some time.
