Sacred Words

We have many sacred words and each culture have their own, whether these are magical, mystical or just words of wisdom we venerate them and choose to use them with reverence.

There are things in this world that defy explanation, that our current advanced grasp of science and technology can not explain, these are where our sacred words fit in, they not wield physical measurable power but belief can make a huge difference.

Sweet And Low


Sweet and low, sweet and low,

Wind of the western sea, ,

Low, low, breathe and blow,

Wind of the western sea!

Over the rolling waters go,

Come from the dying moon, and blow,

Blow him again to me;

While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps.


Sleep and rest, sleep and rest,

Father will come to thee soon;

Rest, rest, on mother's breast,

Father will come to his babe in the nest,

Silver sails all out of the west

Under the silver moon;

Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.

When we speak a word we can invoke the power of that word. When we speak a name we can invoke the memory of that person.
Back through the ages peoples throughout the world realized that words hold power, not just in their ability to move us emotionally but in the unseen as well as within our own minds.
Is it our belief in certain sacred words that give them their power? Or does the power of these words exist apart from us...have we made up these sacred words or have they come forward within our memory - passed down to us from those who came before, who discovered their inherent power?
