“Will Murtha: How can we decipher what voice is leading us to our own highest truth? Like most people, I have an inner dialogue going on in my head, telling me what to do. Some of this dialogue is needy and wanting. It criticizes and condemns. Yet, other times, my inner dialogue is compassionate and loving. It is supportive and caring. How do I know which voice will lead me to my truth? How can I differentiate between good guidance and bad guidance? It is hard enough to decide what outside influences to take in and believe without wondering what inner dialogue to choose. Please help me out here.
Voice of Higher Presence: The static, or mind chatter, that constantly rolls through your head is a combination of all your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Some of the thoughts are positive and feel good; others are self-criticizing and negative. Some of these thoughts empower you. Yet many others make you believe that you are inadequate and small.
The key, when listening to this inner dialogue, is to watch for how it makes you feel. Be conscious of all the feelings in your body. By conscious, I mean become aware. Scan your awareness all over your body. See what vibrations, or vibes, your body is giving out or picking up. If you hear a negative voice rolling through your mind, go deeper into it and watch for the associated feeling. All thoughts mirror and project a corresponding feeling in the body. This is because all thoughts are energy, and this energy is being imprinted on your cellular system.”
William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”
