How to Use Switchwords
What Are Switchwords?
The psychotherapist Freud first noted Switchwords. 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, although 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.

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, . It's available in print and as Kindle download.

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.
