Listening to Your Inner Voice

The inner voice - sometimes called intuition, inner monologue, self-talk, guiding whispers and many others - is a way to commune with your God Self. From it can come your genius and creativity in dealing with any and all matters with which you may be confronted. Unfortunately it also a way to commune with your most judgmental/critical human self and those utterances which represent “you’re not good enough” or are fear-driven. 

This voice may prod or protect, reveal or reflect, remind or reprimand, and simultaneously connect with both your Divine Self and that bloated nothingness that Emerson tells us to get out of our way.

Richard Carson in “Taming Your Gremlins” wrote these five pathways to listening to your inner voice: 
  1. Check in with your heart
  2. Connect with your body
  3. Listen to your intuition
  4. Notice your self-sabotage
  5. Identify limiting beliefs.

Though I concur with all five, allow me to simplify this even more for you....

If what you hear is destructive, it is from your human ego, which includes such undesirable characters as:
the self-saboteur
Dr. Limiting Core Beliefs

the dreaded fear-based inner child

They do not serve you.
(the exception being that they may inform you of what you need to heal in your thinking patterns)

If what you hear is constructive, 
it is of the Divine and will serve you well.
(you probably want to make them a habit)

Notice I did not write positive or negative, but constructive and destructive. 

If you stay cognitive of those two simple distinctions, I know your inner voice will put you squarely on the path to your best life communing with your Best Self. As you actively, consciously, intentionally and mindfully speak the Truth in a Spiritual Mind Treatment, so too should you learn to do so with your inner voice (which when oft repeated can take on a similar power). 

Take with a grain of salt, or not at all, that which is destructive and invalidating of your True Self and listen/learn from what is constructive and affirming. You will restore balance and joy, rediscover passion and harmony, and enliven enthusiasm and vibrancy in all the corners of your life.
