Abracadabra: I create what I speak
As a kid I have used it so many times while trying some stupid magic tricks, I did not even know what Abracadabra meant but when I got to know it curiosity consumed my mind and thus the quest knowledge . Well it’s one of those words which is used globally as it is, pronounced similarly without its translation. I have come across different stories about the origin of this word or say phrase.
The exact origin of the word is up for debate, as there are different theories and stories. Some say it originated from Armanic, Avrah KaDabra which means I will create as I speak and according to the belief it was used by physicians or healers to cure a disease or curse.
While others emphasize on it’s Hebrew origin, “ha-brachah”meaning “the blessing” and it also holds relevance with reference to the “father, son, and holy spirit”: “ab, ben, and ruach hakodesh” respectively.
Jewish achromatic heritage has contributed towards various fields of thought and practices as varied as alchemy, numerology, dream interpretation, astrology, amulets, divination, healing, and altered consciousness and that explains a lot about this phrase.
One of the oldest records of “Abracadabra” being used is a snippet from a Roman sage named Serenus Sammonicus in the 2nd century AD from his Liber Medicinalis.
But the meaning or say its essence remains the same “Abracadabra”: I create what I speak” and according to the belief mostly magicians, physicians and spiritual healers used it.
So, now the question is how it is beneficial for us in today’s world and are we going to use this word for helping ourselves or others. It will obviously look funny if we will start reciting it in front of others.
What I understand from this beautiful phrase irrespective of its origin is, it’s about our own self confidence and will power.
So for me it’s more like- “I create what I think”, “I achieve what I wish “and “i conquer what i desire”. The most protrusive message in the phrase for me was to believe in myself and giving me the sense of authority to use my positive energies to empower myself. So that I can acquire the best and help others around me in whatever way I can.
So this game is all about our willpower. I have experienced it in my life, the more I think about a certain thing and focus on it in a positive way I achieve it, it might take time but the result is what I desired, no matter what happens. The only barrier in the way could be a negative thought that interferes in the thought process. The elimination of negative thoughts would help this process tremendously as a catalyst and minimize the time period between setting your Goal and achieving it.
So, how can one work on Willpower? Do we have it or we have to create it?
Neither is it some rocket science nor a piece of cake, It’s in between, That means you have to put some honest efforts for your own self to make this work. So let’s see how we can improve our willpower step by step and get whatever we want on this Earth, but don’t kick the concept of practicality in all this, because it’s not hypothetical world.
Spiritual way to increases willpower:
- Self Love and Acceptance:
Shred off all the negative thoughts or doubts you have about yourself, Keep in mind no one is perfect on this Earth. Start Loving Your Self and accept who you are, you are not answerable to anyone but yourself.
The more positive you think about yourself more positivity you will attract, and eventually you will be in the bliss of being content with your own self.
- Setting the goal:
Think about what you want? Your goal should be crystal clear.
If you are not sure about what you want, whole universe won’t be able to help you. So set your Goals. We don’t board a flight without knowledge of destination, right? So ask yourself what you want.
- Discipline in regards to time:
Once you have the answer for what you want, ask yourself when you want it? Timeline will help you to move towards your goal with specific timely approach and discipline because its very necessary.Dont forgets to keep the big picture in mind, and try to visualize yourself meeting your goal within prescribed timeline. I am sure it’s going to give you the feeling of happiness and motivation.
- Exercise ,Meditation and Food:
Now after this mental preparation physical preparation is also required, Health is undoubtedly important. So, meditate and exercise. If you can Practice mindful meditation for a few minutes each day can actually boost willpower by helping your brain to process more cells and building up required conditions in areas of it that regulates emotions and will improvise your decision making.
Giving yourself 30 to 40 minutes every day to detoxify your body by doing any kind of exercise or yoga will benefit. Eat healthy and fresh food, Fruits and vegetables too. Because Detoxification of body is important for detoxification of mind and soul.
- Train your mind:
You can chant something which makes you feel happy, loved, blessed. It can be anything; you can use your imagination and creativity for it. It can be something like ‘I am loved, I am blessed’, ‘ I get what I desire’. ‘I am light, I am peace, and I am content’. These are positive thought which will train your grey matter to think in the direction of positivity.
- Channelize your energy:
I know this sounds a bit weird but it really does matter, as we encounter different energies every day we need to understand how to differentiate the good and the not so good. If you can feel or experience negative vibrations from anyone try to avoid them like looking in their eyes, shaking hands, spending so much of time around them, etc. This can be socially awkward at times so no compulsion about it. But honestly that’s how we exchange our energies. This may be one of the reasons for the palms-folded greeting, the Namaste, which Indians customarily use in place of the handshake or the way of greeting in Chinese culture and few more.
- Avoid Distraction:
Save yourself from temptations and desires which can interfere with the path of goal achievement and distract you. For that you should enlist the things that have distracted you mostly till date, in your journey, put a red flag on them in your mind and try to focus on your goal and the contentment you are going to feel once you reach there, imagine. That bliss.
So be your own sorcerer and enjoy the magic of…… Abracadabra!!!
