How to Use Switchwords

Updated on June 26, 2018

I've been writing about spiritual and self-development topics for many years. Switchwords are my new favorite thing. Together--Love.

What Are Switchwords?

Switchwords were first noted by the psychotherapist, Freud. He suggested that certain words have the power to reach into, and alter, our subconscious. This idea was seized upon by businessman, James T. Mangan, who wrote his book, “The Secret of Perfect Living”, but it didn’t sell very well at the time. The reading public was not ready for such a radical concept. They are now, and it's back in print.

So what are Switchwords? Well, they are just words. Simple, everyday words. No-one is certain exactly how they work, but it is likely that it is connected to the vibrational frequency of the word. The meaning of the word is not important - it may be related to its function or it may not.

Who Can Use Switchwords?

Anyone can make use of Switchwords. There’s no danger of harm by their use, so feel free to try them for any situation that they could relieve or improve.

Should you be a little bit witchy or Wiccan, Switchwords are fantastic spell-boosters: Witchcraft & Switchwords: How to Combine Them in Spells.

What Can I Use Switchwords For?

In a word, no pun intended, anything. Switchwords will increase your energy, unleash your creativity, help you find lost objects, deepen your connection to other, promote wealth, attract others to you, and increase your confidence.

Use them to promote your business by increasing your client base. Help you lose weight by making you motivated, deepen your understanding and even relieve constipation. There’s no end to their usefulness.

How I Learned About These 'Magic Words'

A long time ago, I was contacted via my tarot website by a gentleman called Shunyam Nirav. He gifted me a copy of an e-book that he had written after finding an old remaindered edition of Mangan’s book in a second-hand store. He’d been fascinated by the idea of these ‘Switchwords’. Nirav did a lot more research into the concept and identified many more words to add to Mangan’s original list. I was sad to hear that Shunyam Nirav passed away in 2008. I used some Switchwords as a scrolling banner (remember those?) across my page to attract business and make a connection with my readers.

How To Use Switchwords

Switchwords are used in many ways. You can:

  • Whisper or speak one throughout the day.
  • Write them down in a journal.
  • Use them in art or drop them into your writing.
  • Meditate on one or more Switchwords.
  • Some suggest writing them on your skin, or labeling your water.
  • Simply use them when you need to.

There are no hard and fast rules for Switchwords. Try them all, or simply use the one that resonates with you. I’ve included the three power words below, these are like the ignition switch in your vehicle. They are ‘power ups’.

Liz Dean has picked up the Switchword baton, and brought the concept right up to date in her book, "Switchwords: How to Use One Word to Get What You Want." It's available in print and as Kindle download. During my reading of Liz's book, I found it easy to pick up the Switchword concept where I'd left off all those years earlier.

Power Switchwords

There are three major power words:

  • Together - the Master Switchword. It helps you to focus on your intention. It can be spoken on its own or prior to any other Switchword. Think of it as a kind of magnifying glass through which you are guiding a beam of sunshine. It ignites your desire.
  • Divine - tells the universe/all-that-is to execute a miracle.
  • Bring - is the manifestation power word. Use it alone or with other words to bring you what you want or need.

There are many other power words:

  • Adjust - creates balance and helps you handle difficult and unpleasant circumstances.
  • Bingo - finds the right answer and promotes excitement.
  • Bluff - reduces or dispels fear, encourages inspiration.
  • Care - to remember, memorize and learn.
  • Charm - to bring your heart’s desire.
  • Crystal - to clarify, to see the future clearly.
  • Cut - to improve willpower; to sever ties.

  • Next - to finish detailed or boring work.
  • Plethora - abundance.

Multiple and Combined Switchwords

I’ve noticed that some people are using them in groups of words, all at the same time, by stringing a number of Switchwords together. Probably because they think they will have a greater effect. I disagree. I think doing this messes up their vibration. At most, I would only use two, or possibly three, together - a power word plus the relevant ‘instruction’ word - some of which are listed in the tables. The energy that makes all this work is not stupid. As long as you know what you want and choose the most appropriate word, it will deliver.

Examples of Combined Words

Divine Order -- to clean your home fast and efficiently.

Together Giggle -- to work on a team project.

Adjust Alone -- to speed up recuperation from an illness.

Switchwords and Your Spiritual Path

Switchwords seamlessly integrate with any other spiritual path, whether it be religious, prayer, energy work, healing, Law of Attraction-based, New Age, meditative, or if you are simply on a journey of self-discovery. It is enough to be aware of them and use them whenever you need to.

If you also go back over the lists and ideas given in the article, and understand that the suggestions I've given are infinitely adaptable, you'll probably find the exact word you need for your situation.

Oh, and that word to relieve constipation?- 'Swivel'.

      Hi Saras, to find lost objects, or to remember when you last saw them, use 'reach'. It works for things like forgotten names as well.

      Hi Yug, all the words you need are in the article. All you have to do is stretch their meaning to encompass your purpose. So Together, Between, With to improve your connection to the parents. Tap and Done, to attract a good job. Make use of the Master words too. Just play around with them.

      Hey Bev, that's a fascinating concept and a very well written, informative hub.

      I was reminded of the "Mantra Jaap" which is mentioned in Ancient Indian scriptures, and is followed throught India in Sanatan (Hindu) Faith. They would take a "Mala", a garland of beads, which help to keep count. Each time "Mantra" is chanted, a bead is shifted. Their are various counts, for e.g. 151 - considered an auspicious number - for chanting.

      Again, Great Hub. Will definitely figure out more about Switchwords.

      They certainly are :) The whole approach really resonated with me because I was hugely into dreams and dream interpretation for many years, so I'm no stranger to deciphering the language of our unconscious and subconscious mind.

      Switchwords has given me a way to speak back - a new tool in the box that I didn't have before. Very enlightening!

      After reading your article here I was inspired to buy the book and I'm so glad I did. Switchwords are making such a real difference to my life.

      I notice that I don't see the effects for a day or two. For instance yesterday I was having trouble focusing on work so I used some phrases to help, but it wasn't until today that i worked 5 hours straight without a problem. I'm not complaining!

      Hi Swatee, I can't guarantee anything, but there's no harm in trying. I suggest, "Together+ Divine+Move". How to use them is in the article above :) Then each day, you should take one small action that moves you closer to your goal.

      Dear Bev G,

      I m 40 years old female and have everything that a normal human being wants. Although I always wanted to shift to a big city and have a better quality of life. Can I achieve it through switchwords?

      Please suggest what needs to be done.

      Hi Anu, try Crystal - for clarity, Help - to reduce confusion and indecision, On - to get new ideas. Also use Divine to cause the universe to work on your behalf. You can use them separately or combine them. You don't have to chant them either. Write them down, whisper or think them. Be open to all kinds of situations and opportunities. Good luck!

      It can vary, Pratiksha. Obviously a switchword won't work if one (or both) partner is in a state of resistance. Switchwords work on the individual's energy. You can help matters by speaking as you would normally. If he wants to carry on the silent treatment, that's his choice, but you don't have to join in with him.

      Hi Anita, what you are describing is an affirmation; slightly different to switchwords. Most switchwords are not really to do with what they mean. Affirmations are pretty cool too.

      Super hub. Love the idea of switch words. I have one that works for me when my funds are low. 'I have money in abundance,' Don't think it is a switch word but works for me. I think that is what Freud meant. That sentence has the power to reach into my subconscious and put me in a happy place.

      That is the only bright idea of Freud that I admire.

      He also believed that you should act on your sexual impulses, no matter what the consequences. People actually agree with this bit of wisdom from an expert. Utter nonsense.

      As far as I am aware, Jagmeet, 'infinity' isn't a switchword, although it should be. All words have energy and I guess infinity would be a great one to mean 'no limits'.

      Switch words are so interesting. Although I have not kept it up long enough to see positive results I would imagine that it may cause a different mindset. I did have some astounding positive results with visualization. This took about a year and was something I desperately wanted. The chances of obtaining this desire was practically nil. And yet I achieved it with visualization. A shift?in your mindset can produce miracles. Even wanting to stop smoking or a drug addict that wants to stop taking drugs.will not have success unless they change their mindset and have the desire to stop. Nobody can help you unless you help yourselves. This is just my opinion. In my experiment with a different mindset I needed to buy a house and did not have the money. That I achieved this was a miracle. So yes I believe swithwords will work especially using it with visualization. Thank you for sharing such an interesting article. n

      Thank you for your kind words, Susie. If you feel 'build' has a certain strength or vibe, then it'll be a switchword for you.

      Everything has a vibration, from rocks to elephants. It's particle physics :) Watch some Abraham-Hicks vids on YouTube - they talk about vibration and emotions all the time.

      Such an interesting article. I have never heard of switchwords before, but will certainly try them. I could embrace the vibrational frequency of words. One word I love is 'the universe,' Don't think it is a switchword but when meditating that word just feels like magic. I often read 'Rasta's' hubs on aloe avera. According to his aloe hubs, the aloe plant has vibrational frequencies and also protect from evil spirits.
