Today we are aware that words enable us to communicate, each having a symbolic meaning. But in ancient times, a secret was known about language — words contain vibratory energy within each sound packet.

To unlearn ordinary methods of speaking with symbolic words, the Pythagorean school required initiates (students) to refrain from all speech in their first five years of study. This was done in order to learn the reticence of speech, to be able to keep the school’s mysteries, strengthen silence and focus on the power of each different sound and word. Can you imagine voluntarily not speaking for five years?

One of the secrets that the Pythagorean students learned was the power within vowel sounds. In fact, many early alphabets excluded vowel sounds, as they were believed to be too stimulating.

Pythagorean students observed where words resonated within their bodies, which chakras were activated by which sounds, and the sounds that were associated with specific mental states. Some words subtly affected physical aspects, while others had power over the emotional levels of a person. Students were taught that energy follows thought and how to grasp the intention and feeling attached to people’s words. The symbolic meaning of a word is only its shell, as energy and information also exist in the sound.

Pythagoras taught that a well-modulated voice with pleasing speed could restore balance to the body and the soul. His students learned to identify healing sounds of language. They were also taught to avoid contradictions (for example, awfully nice) and exaggerations, believing that these vexed the astral energies.

Words make thought-forms that are energies surrounding us like a cloud. Have you ever wondered why it is unpleasant to sit next to people who always complain and use negative words?

Students of the Kabbalah practiced attaching an emotion to a word, such as love. They would feel love and then recite every alphabet of the language, while experiencing this feeling. So love would accompany all sounds coming out of their mouth.

Ancient masters used calming words on stressed people and voiced exciting sounds to those who were depressed. Subtly, this energy transferred onto their words, enabling them to heal people simply by speaking to them.

Consider now what you are attaching to your words. Use them wisely, as sounds are more than just symbolic representations. They also project an energetic influence that can affect those with whom you speak.
