Words are cheap

“Words are cheap”

This proverb / saying has been around for a long time and typically the meaning it conveys is quite self explanatory.

A proverb is defined as “a short popular saying that expresses effectively some truth”.

So, as such when we hear or read a proverb we tent to take it for granted, to believe that it is the truth.

Or is it?

Today you can find many studies from different researches (as well as variety of scriptural texts) explaining that our thoughts and our words vibrate at a certain frequency. Every word usually has a specific meaning to us and this meaning determines the frequency of it. 

Simple example are 2 often used words.

The word “Yes” generally has a positive, uplifting, feel good frequency, while the word “No” generally has a negative, heavier frequency.

Studies show that the average person says thousands words per day (from about 10’000 to 30’000 words).

So, if each word creates a certain frequency, well, you can imagine the consequences of that.

Depending on the choice of words we make, the proverb “words are cheap” will start to have a very different meaning to us.

If we use words that have a high frequency, positive vibration, then this is what we will be experiencing in our daily life.

On the contrary, if we mostly use words that resonate with a lower frequency, then that is what will be our experience.

In both cases, it is very obvious that words are not cheap at all but worth more than gold.


Next time you want to say something, choose your words carefully. Think before you speak and practice mindfulness. Be aware of what you are saying and what you are thinking as the sum total of all your thoughts and words creates your…LIFE.
