“Most people don’t realize that the mind constantly chatters. And yet that chatter winds up being the force that drives us much of the day in terms of what we do, what we react to, and how we feel.” - Michael A. Singer
Have you ever listened closely to that little voice inside your head? It sounds abstract to say “that little voice” but we all have one. The real question is, should we listen to it? Is this voice helping or hindering us?
I know for myself, I listened to my thoughts as if they were fact. They felt so real to me. It was as if I had no other choice than to listen to it, accept it and act on it. If I would have questioned the validity of the voice/thoughts, I would have noticed all the inconsistencies. The negativity with little evidence to back it up, from one day to the next, depending on my environment, the situation, even my self-care routine and so on.
I had to reach a place of higher consciousness to become aware of my thoughts and to understand that they are exactly that; just thoughts. I didn’t have to ignore them, but I also did not need to give them power in my life. I just had to observe them and let them go.
It is said that human beings have 60,000 thoughts per day and 90% of these are repetitive. The act of awareness and letting go, made room for new, more positive, thoughts. “There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it.” - Michael A.
