These are important to me. These are important to all of us, because these concepts, Language and Linguistics, are the way in which we not only
express our thoughts outwards, but also we internalize our thoughts linguistically.
If you say "Thank you" in your head, to yourself, you have the ability, if you say it with enough intention, to feel grateful. A simple sentence,
"Thank you" can make you FEEL "Thank you". It doesn't matter how you say it. It doesn't matter if in your head you said "tahanak yuou" or
"thx u", you will FEEL "Thank you" (grammatically correct and all!). Language and Linguistics can go a lot further than that. Internally, we can
use it to mnemonically induce practically any state of being and mind that we desire. Externally, we can turn our internal dialogue into an intricate
(or, should I say, extricate) flow of words which can accurately (at least to the person writing) describe what we are experiencing, which exists
outside of words, language and linguistics.
Using these concepts can enrich our life. It may also have absolutely no effect on our life what-so-ever. However, it will not decrease your quality
of life. The only thing we would do well to remember is that, if we cannot convey our thoughts expressively in a way others can understand it, are you
sure you can convey your thoughts to yourself in a way that your subconscious mind can understand you? What I mean here, has taken me a long time to
try and understand. Our subconscious mind, from what I understand, can only understand very direct and very concise and clear 'directions'. If you
say "I don't want to not feel happy" your subconscious will not pick all of that up. It will understand "I want to feel happy".
Here is a personal anecdote of how I came about portions of this knowledge. I was at a loss trying to figure out how I could successfully induce Lucid
Dreams consistently. I then learned of a method which was called "MILD" which stood for Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams. Basically, before bed, I
would repeat in my head, putting as much weight in every single word, really meaning what I said "When I dream, I will remember I am dreaming and
control my dream." First night, no results, second night, no results... I couldn't figure out what I had been doing wrong. And then, it dawned on
me, my instructions were muddled! Though to my conscious they seemed perfectly clear, after all, I could understand it perfectly... I changed the
wording "I will remember I am dreaming and control my dream." I achieved results that night. Why? My subconscious had picked up "When I" dream as
a signal to 'wait' for the dream to come. Well, of course, the dream would come, but my subconscious would still be waiting for the 'when'!
It's simple things like that. Language and Linguistics is very important to me. That is why I take care to be grammatically correct, to have correct
spelling and make my writing easy to understand for myself and others.
