History has a lot of cool examples illustrating the power of language.
One of the more famous is the love triangle between Marc Anthony, Cleopatra, and Caesar.
Cleopatra was allied with Anthony, against Caesar, back before Caesar took over Rome.
Caesar had them on the run, and chased them into Egypt.
It looked bad for the two, as Caesar was looking better and better.
While Marc Anthony’s soldiers weren’t a match for Caesar, Cleopatra didn’t accept defeat.
“I got this,” she told her people.
She had them sneak her into where Caesar was staying.
She slipped in, and in one of the most talked about conversations in the history of civilization, she convinced Caesar not kill her, and not destroy Egypt.
And she ended up having his kid.
At the time, she was only 21.
And it’s easy to discount this as a hot young princess talking her way into the brain of a 51 year old general.
But there’s much more to it to that.
For that reason, many believe Cleopatra had magical powers.
So much that plays, books and movies have been written about her, and about that fateful conversation that changed history.
But consider this idea.
A magic “spell” is a bunch of words said in the correct order, that have a profound impact on the receiver.
The same word, “spell” is used to describe how the right letters put in the right order, will have the same effect.
Powerful words like love, fortune, freedom, slavery, hate, can evoke powerful emotions.
But you jumble the letters around and they are meaningless.
Most people when they speak, don’t give ANY thought to the order of words.
But when you put your words in the right order, your “spell” will have as profound an effect.
Imagine that most people say, “vole and nuftore”
While thinking, “Love and fortune.”
People look at them and say, “Dude, what?”
But you say, “Love and fortune,” and they look at you and smile.
Take this to a sentence or paragraph level.
Most people jumble up words, so when they speak, it sounds like jumbled up nonsense.
But when you “spell” your words in the right order, you will have a magical effect on your listeners.
Able to move generals and change the course of history.
