One thing which we don’t always realize is the impact that the vibration from our words and prayers have. When you speak it has a vibration. This vibration can communicate love, hate, or just anything. Different words and languages have different vibrations and effects.
For example, reciting Gurbani has an uplifting vibration which can elevate your consciousness (whether you understand the meaning or not). This is why we bless the Gurparshad and Langar in Gurdwara. Giving the food the vibration of our prayers and the Guru’s Bani. You don’t want to be arguing for fighting with someone while you are preparing food. This is why we normally "bless" our food by chanting long "Saaaat Naaam"s, or by saying a prayer together with the food.
If you look at each language you will notice a different energy to it. Some are blunt, some are "sensual", some are smooth, etc.
To Illustrate the effects of prayers and our words I wanted to share with you some research that was done by Masaru Emoto, a creative and visionary Japanese researcher. In an nut shell he photographed water crystals before and after certain words or prayers were done. Our bodies are over 70% water, so you can see how this relates to us. It is pretty striking to see the difference from the same water when a sentence like "I’m going to kill you", as opposed to "I love you". Here are a few images.

It really makes it apparent how our words have impact. Hopefully this will make you think twice before you speak. Speak to communicate and share something uplifting. So much of our communication is not really needed and is wasted energy. When you speak, speak with a conscious purpose and intent.
If you are game, try this this: Get a tape recorder and record yourself for a while during the day when you are talking. Later, listen to it. I’ll let you come to the conclusions. :)
