"In this fast-forward world, where geographic boundaries are erased via instant communication, there is nothing more vital to success in life than win-win dialogue. Read and internalize [Oswald's] teachings, and you will realize, as well as materialize, your loftiest goals." -- Denis Waitley, author of The Psychology of Winning

"Yvonne Oswald's book will change your life. She takes the complicated world of metaphysics and interpersonal relationships and puts it in a language that even the most novice of readers can absorb and be transformed by. I loved it." -- Master Cameron Shayne, Budokon creator

"Changing my words consciously has changed my whole attitude and that of my clients.

"Being aware of my language has transformed my life in unexpected ways. It has shown me where I need to heal. I learned that any unpleasant thought I had came with a corresponding unpleasant feeling. As I consciously began to change my thoughts, my feelings towards my husband grew more loving and accepting. It felt like my heart was expanding, and I saw him through compassionate eyes. Our interactions became more positive because he was open to using the same tools. Happily, we have fallen in love all over again." - Dr. Carrie Bailey, PhD, psychologist, Connect Department, Canadian Hearing Society

Every Word Has Power is one of the most powerful and transforming books I have ever read - it is so full of wisdom. As I read it I marked it up with my yellow marker, pen and pencil! In the introduction the author describes the human brain and elaborates that the language we are using today has many words that are in essence outdated - they evolved out of our middle brain polarity thinking. This book teaches us not only a new `updated' language but also how to communicate by accessing our higher brain - the `more recently' developed neocortex. When I read this section, this was such a revelation for me - a light went off! I took German language classes as a teen and learning it was a process which required attention, intention and practice - so why would my learning to think and talk a new language of high-energy communication be any different. I suddenly had a patient mindset. The wisdom in this book goes beyond `think positive' - it offers real life examples and exercises - to teach us how to interact with our world from a high energy state. There is a simple and powerful decision making technique which taps you into your higher consciousness (and this process works for me, even when my ego does not like the answers! Seems my higher consciousness prefers that I eat more vegetables and decrease the ice cream!) And just wait till you do the forgiveness technique! Since working with this material I feel a self-strength in my life again. I am grateful to the author and thank her for providing this information for 'the many' - it truly is a gift. Be prepared to change your life for the absolute BEST!

I am still reading this little book and it is taking me longer than it normally takes for me to read other books because I want to savor every word. Yvonne's book has something for everyone and if one is willing to do the exercises your life can be changed for the better,or if you feel you life is great this book can help with your job,your relationships,your self esteem and many other areas in your life that could use some fine tuning. These types of books are NOT the solve all your problems overnight magic bullet but tools to help you as long as your are willing to do what they suggest.
I will tell you that at 56 years of age I am just now learning the difference in how negative and positive emotions affect the body.
As well as how our words and thoughts affect your life, your relationships,your career, and much more. I was truly amazed.
Thank You Yvonne for this powerful,easy to read and easy to apply book.

Format: Paperback
...All Day Long! Yvonne Oswald has done a tremendous job in laying out the blueprint on how we can not only improve the communication with ourselves but also with the people in our lives.

This book is filled with many truths. One of the core concepts of this book is that Switching your language provides a wonderful solution to nonproductive selftalk.

For example,

'It's hard' becomes 'It's not easy'
'I'm broke' becomes 'I'm not rich'

The beauty of this strategy is that your unconscious mind doesn't hear the word 'not'. Therefore it hears,

'It's easy'
'I'm rich'

Now those words are music to my ears!

The author states that the unconscious mind thinks you're talking about yourself when you are talking about other people. In other words, it accepts things literally and personally.

Makes you think twice about speaking negatively about other people,huh?:)

Another key concept that was discussed was the fact that the unconscious mind's prime directive is to operate and preserve the physical body, so all suggestions that have to do with keeping the body healthy are immediately accepted, remembered and acted upon.

This is an incredible value piece of information because you can use this when setting your goals. Now, like many self-help people, she talks about using affirmations that incorporate preserving your health. I think that's excellent advice. If affirmations work for you, be all means, continue to use them as a method of presenting your desire to the unconscious mind.

However, if you are like most people, and have challenges with affirmations, I suggest you present your desires to the unconscious mind in the form of a question instead.

Every Word Has Power is a delightful read for truth seekers and their friends. Yvonne Oswald's sparkling wit and brilliant insight are shown to advantage in this wonderful hands-on book about the power of the spoken and written Word. The modest title belies the wisdom she has obviously accumulated over a lifetime. A fine mind and truthful presence, she knows her subject so well she renders the principles of the language of manifestation accessible to all.
