“Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree. Merry, merry king of the bush is he. Laugh, Kookaburra! Laugh, Kookaburra! Gay your life must be.” – Marion Sinclair, 1932

The Merriam-Webster dictionary states:

The Urban dictionary states:

- a homosexual male or female
- often used to describe something stupid or unfortunate. originating from homophobia.
- quite preferable among many teenage males in order to buff up their “masculinity”… (Um)
With so many definitions. It’s a no wonder why some from other countries find the English language to be one of the hardest languages to learn. We add to or change definitions as we go, we change the spelling or abbreviate a word, and we create slang words.
Let’s look at another definition for ‘gay’, this time from the Etymology dictionary. Etymology is the study of the history of words, their origins, and how their form and meaning have changed over time.
From Old French gai “joyful, happy; pleasant, agreeably charming; forward, pert; light-coloured”. In Middle English (c. 1400) it meant “excellent person, noble lady, gallant knight,” also “something gay or bright; an ornament or badge”
The slang meaning “homosexual” appeared in late 1940s, and picked up for gay slang. The association with (male) homosexuality derived from the term gay cat, used as far back as 1893 in American English for “young hobo,” one who is new on the road, also one who sometimes does jobs. By 1971 this word became “a (usually male) homosexual.” And from 2000 it became a teen slang word meaning “bad, inferior, undesirable,” without reference to sexuality.
Why is this important to know?
Albert Einstein told us this; “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
“Everything is Energy.” This has been proven many times by Nobel Prize winning physicists, such as Niels Bohr, including numerous scientists and quantum physicists from past to present. Things we can see, including us, and that which cannot been seen is energy. And all energy has conscious intent. A purpose, goal and end-result.
Thoughts, words, and emotions are also energy; and when created carry with it conscious intent to bring into our physical experience the exact match of the frequency we relay.
When a word is first created it first appears as thought in the imagination. The inventor of any particular word, imagined this word and in that same moment they also had a particular sensation, or, as we call it, emotion; just as we all have emotions in every moment. We are never without emotional sensation, we could be happy, sad, calm, frustrated, serene or angry, and this can change from moment to moment.
When a word is invented the alphabetic combination creates a sound. This sound and the emotion felt by the inventor in that moment merge and create a pattern, a pattern of a unique frequency and this originates into another ‘something’ that has conscious intent.
The words we speak or write come from our thoughts. Whether the words are spoken, thought or written they impact our outcomes in life, and regardless of what new or expanded definition is attached to them, the only frequency that counts is the sound and the original meaning of the word. When we don’t use a word in context to the original meaning we confine our possibilities and this can block our path to abundance.
The conscious intent or unique frequency (purpose, goal and end result) of any word can be distorted, veiled or muffled when used in the wrong context with the unique frequency of another word/s. Therefore it is essential for us to be mindful of context, correct word and sound as an important part of our language when we are to choose exactly what we want.
All words have origins. Many English words have been borrowed from others known as root or origin words, for example; Anglo-Saxon, German, Greek, Latin, or French. And the root words are the ones that hold power (unique frequency), immense power, when they were created.
Here are some examples of word origin and alterations:
Fun: from verb fun (1680s) “to cheat, hoax.”
Altered: “Something that provides mirth or amusement: enjoyment or playfulness.”
Awesome: from awe (n.) + -some. “Fear causing or terror causing.”
‘Awe’: from c.1300, aue, “fear, terror, great reverence,” earlier aghe, c. 1200, from a Scandinavian source, Old Norse agi “fright;”
‘–Some’: from Old English –sum, “tending to; causing; to a considerable degree.”
Altered: Slang “very impressive.”
Homophobia: Panic fear of one and the same.
‘Homo’: from Greek homos “one and the same,” also “belonging to two or more jointly.”
‘phobia’: from Latin -phobia, “panic fear of.”
Altered: Related to same sex relationships.
Every sound we convey and every word we think sends out a frequency, an energy stream that creates our reality. We attract like energy, like attracts like, the Law of Attraction. And because of tampered definitions and lack in awareness, we are either improving or destroying our health, relationships, or our prosperity automatically. The Law of Attraction is listening to our transmissions, disregarding whether we know or do not know what the frequency means, and giving us what we ask for, every time.
Success in all areas of life comes in part from communication with our thoughts, to ourselves, to and from others. We use words to relay these thoughts, concepts, ideas, images and intentions. It is essential that we develop an awareness of our thought process as well as the way we and others around us use language by practicing words as they were designed to be used and understand what particular outcomes they carry. We can choose to Define with the truest definition or stay on automatic and Confine our ability to create abundance.
Words are a command to our thoughts and this IS a way we create energy (frequency). When we speak, we also think, which doubles the transmission with the Law of Attraction. To forward our opportunity towards abundance we can choose to quit using the words that hold us back and replace them with power words that will serve us well. Words that will increase and align our energetic experience. Because, everything is energy. Including words!
Every day I find joy and just as the Kookaburra I laugh daily. I am ‘Gay’. I am joyful, and happy.
