“Royalty is born!” The announcements were made and the crowds gathered to wait for the presentation. There was a high level of excitement in the atmosphere. Eventually, attendants began to show up on the platform, passing through heavy, velvet, crimson curtains. Everyone directed their attention to the curtains, expecting, hoping, smiling. The curtains parted and the leader of the country stepped out. With admiration, the speech began, “Citizens of the universe, today I have an announcement to make. This day is a day of recognition. Today, I am staring into the faces of royalty. Each and every one of you carries the DNA of all the wisdom of the passing ages. The day you were born, your name was shouted among the stars and you were declared royal. I am reaffirming that declaration. You are royal!” The crowd cheered, danced, and clapped. The elevation of energy was creating such an atmosphere that could be felt throughout the venue and beyond. “Wear your crown. Carry yourself as royalty. Know that you are valued, unique, and highly cherished.”
I believe that words can be passed down through generations similar to a financial inheritance.
Think of a time when you were a child and you were reprimanded for something you did or didn’t do. Maybe those words were accompanied with a sense of anger or frustration on the part of the speaker. Do you recall the impact of their words and how that made you feel?
Maybe both, the emotions and the words, imparted something to you, but the words become like seeds that dropped down into the soil of your soul. That seed opens, and spreads its roots just the same as every tomato seed after it is planted in a garden. It’s in the seed’s genetic code to take root and produce.
Isn’t it funny, weird, or even scary when you say something and realize you sounded just like your parents? What you repeat is what was planted in you. Your words can create an inheritance in the life of those around you. They can shape the path of your life and they can shape the path of your children– just like an inheritance.
