When you listen to it, you can assess what you want to do in a given situation.
Most people aren't aware of such a voice.
Few of us have been trained to pay attention to our feelings, thoughts and intuitions.
Connecting to your inner voice
quiet time and introspection, qualities that are not encouraged for value in our achievement-oriented society.
All of us experience our inner voice differently.
Sometimes we get stuck with negative messages.
Negative messages create negative feelings.
Identifying and tracing the roots of negative messages is a big step toward eradicating them.
When you can see where your bad feelings originate, you affirm the fact that they come from somewhere, that you are not crazy or creating them to torture yourself, and
that they are not, in fact, true.
In the beginning pinpointing the thoughts that make you feel bad will be a slow trial and error process. With practice, you will be able to search out their origins in a matter of moments.
To get rid of a negative message, you can to replace it with a positive affirmation about yourself.
An affirmation is a way of stating your strengths in a powerful, declarative way: "I am a big strong woman who can defend myself." "I am a vulnerable man who can cry and still be lovable." "Just because I am alive, I deserve love and respect."
Affirmations are an effective antidote to the negative messages that come and go.
As you surround yourself with others who affirm your strengths and your healing,
the negative messages will gradually be replaced
with the truth--that you are a powerful, strong, person.
