For years now, I always have a Latin Dictionary by my desk. Besides the academic and functional importance of language, words and their origins will usually lead you down a mystical road. Understanding the origin of words is a very alchemical, shamanic and magical process. Just like a Shaman will be able to read the “energetic” trace of what would look like a random event to the uninitiated; words in my experience will almost always lead back to some sort of mystical or archetypal force.
Let’s take the word “Opportunity” for example. It derives from “Opportune”, which could mean “Favorable”. If you look at my Latin Dictionary, in Latin you will have “Opportunus” which in meaning (energetic resemblance), similarity and a few words apart you will have the word: “OPS”…name of the Goddess of Plenty! For a Mystic, using this word literally activates a vibrational tone that may have been used in strong faith by many humans in ancient times, to call in energies of plenty, wealth, resource, power, etc. In other words there is a reason why certain words are put together the way they are. If you are conscientious of these reasons then by using certain words your inner vibration will invite the external equivalent vibrations that will create manifestations of that quality.
Nowadays, you don’t need to have a dictionary by your desk, it’s just a click away. If ever intrigued by a certain word try to research its origin (etymology), see where it leads you and if it is compatible with the manifestations you are aiming for.
