Is It Possible to Lie Without Saying a Word?

Yes. Lying without saying a word is what I call lying by omission: leaving out a factual detail deliberately that would drastically change the meaning of what was said.

For example:

It’s buying something and not telling the person you bought it. It’s meeting someone for a liaison and not telling your significant other about it. It’s cheating on a test and telling no one. Deleting a word or a phrase to change its meaning to suit your needs….

Lying by omission is when an important fact is omitted, deliberately leaving another person with a misconception. The consequences of lying are that eventually no one will listen to you, trust you or take you serious. It is worth being honest to others and yourself. The benefits to live a life of integrity magnifies a life filled with abundance, love and happiness all year round!

 

It’s a Poor Idea to Lie to Yourself

When you make a false statement with a deliberate intent to deceive, that is when you lie. You plant a tiny seed of deception that will manifest some way or another in your life and usually accompanied by suffering and pain.

When you lie to someone you automatically lie to yourself. At a recent party, I lied to a stranger about who I was. The next day I felt immense guilt from my poor actions.Why did I do that? Too much alcohol? After feeling sorry for myself, I looked at the reasons why I lied.

The root of the problem: ‘I was not proud of myself.’ This made me very sad and insecure. A couple of days later, I made the effort to really get to know myself by enrolling in a weekend workshop. The results were amazing!

The act of lying and its consequences are inevitable. It will catch up with you if you don’t make amends now.  Lying equals not trusting and loving yourself enough, to tell the truth.
