Your little Inner voice
What 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 fulfilment 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.
“our subconscious minds have no sense of humour, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image.”Epictetus
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.
