Your little Inner voice

inner voiceWhat is our “Inner Speech,” our “little, inner monologue?” Our inner  speech or dialogue is how we converse  with ourselves. It is the small voice in our head that we talk with–the mental process of the moment–that connects us with our  environment.

Your little, inner monologue is your communication bridge linking your  conscious and subconscious mind. It is the way we form impressions  about things; it is how we interpret  external events related to our  lives, our circumstances, and our environment–the inner monologue  is the way we try to make sense of what is happening around us.

“It is very obvious that we are not influenced  by facts but by our interpretation of the  facts.”

Alfred Adler.

The importance of your little, inner voice. . .

Our inner monologue is our best friend who can easily become our enemy.  With our self-talk, we may live in harmony, or be in a constant struggle,  making our life  “heaven on Earth” on one hand, or a “living hell” on  the other. How much mental health and how much joy and   fulfillment we experience in life is directly proportional to the  quality of our inner dialogue,  our little, inner speech,  the way we converse with ourselves, by forming impressions about what  is happening in life, in our circumstances, in our surroundings.

 

Another remarkable attribute of our inner self, as Epictetus pointed out  is:

“our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no  jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an  imagined thought or image.”


Conclusively, taking into account the above ancient ideas coupled with  modern research about the communication bridge between our conscious and  subconscious, a main way of changing our subconscious programming  is how we reply to it, through our little  self-dialogue.

We can change…

We can change the impression of what is going on around us by the way we  interpret events, or by the way we talk back to ourselves about  what is happening to us–by improving, in other words, the quality  of our little, inner self-talk.

A healthful inner monologue create interpretations of life  circumstances that contributes to self-acceptance, self-love, and high  self-esteem.

A healthy self-dialogue confirms that we accept ourselves as we  are, and that we are at peace with the way we relate with our little, inner  voice. It implies friendship and love with the “little voice-guy” that we  are going to carry him around for the rest of our lives! In addition, when  our inner monologue is harmonious, we are better in touch with  our feelings, which means that we can enjoy and able to express the  real part of us spontaneously.

The two-way channel is in harmony as the relation between the two  components of the mind is harmonious as the conscious mind and the  subconscious refreshes each other, building and strengthening each other as  an ongoing process. A healthy outgrowing emotional and  spiritual maturity is the result, as it is a product from our  correct understanding of and a healthy  relationship with, reality. way we interact, talk, and relate with  our inner little voice.
