“When we speak from our heart and say the words our soul has only dared to whisper, that's when miracles happen. When we communicate in a heartfelt way, it's dignified and compelling, and it usually evokes support and open-heartedness from others. Words create energy. From the spoken word to the written word, from the DNA messages encoded in cells to nerve impulses connecting our mind and body, words will influence life. Words spoken from the heart bring more inspiration , motivation and good energy into our world. … marinate your heart in your words so that what you speak from your heart will reflect the love you possess inside.”
