How many voices does consciousness have?
Here’s a ‘not news’ news flash: We all hear talk in our heads. It’s our consciousness sifting through the massive amounts of data which is being called to process.
We hear ourselves thinking – entertaining dialogue within our imaginations – all day and even night. Some of it’s fun. Some of it’s not. Some of it’s useful. Some of it’s not. Some talk to themselves in the mirror in order to get a clearer understanding, because doing so provides both audio and visual input from a most trusted source (you :), to assist; to validate the thoughts one wishes to focus on, as opposed to those one would prefer to stop entertaining.
It’s something I’ve done myself on occasion; ‘talking it out’ with the person I have the closest relationship with. Who will always guide me aptly, with honesty, integrity and love. With subject matter that might be preferable to keep to oneself (that which often whispers most loudly), it stands to good reason that such inner content – while in conflict, anyway – is best handled (and honoured) in privacy. Sharing it with Self – hearing it out loud – is not only a quick, private and effective way to ‘let it be heard’, but more importantly, to obtain sound feedback.
That which whispers loudest tends to also be more persistent than the things which are ‘already figured out’. And I’ve noticed the uncomfortable ‘mind spin’ tends to seep in at times when we are most vulnerable. Tired, hungry, lonely, having had a bad day, etc. Perhaps because the resonant frequency of that which seeks attention, trapped within our cellular memory, is also vulnerable. Like speaks to and hears likewise.
This is why – to get back to the origin of this piece – meditation is so important.
This series is about focusing on that which serves our Greatest Outcomes; that which allows us access to the ‘level up’ timelines. This involves addressing that which is on repeat cycles in our minds; that which has perhaps been forgotten, ignored or pushed down, even with good reason. It’s also about addressing our collective amnesia, to get a better understanding as to why it is so challenging to move past the past; to escape the roller coaster ride of conditioning, repeat patterns and past timelines.
Understanding how to navigate this (in essence, how to manifest a higher, multidimensional experience, even if this perspective exists only in the power of the imagination), is as important as why we should. Invoking the imagination – being able to use this power to visualize anything – is not only an apt means of ensuring health and wellness, but also allows for an infinitely more interesting and fulfilling life than what our limiting cycles offer.
As you read this, whether you care to see things in terms of linear timelines and three dimensional forms, or in terms of infinite timelines and quantum dimensional possibility, please bear in mind that hearing yourself hear yourself – even if it sounds like it’s not you spinning stories in there – is totally normal. And I encourage you to talk it out with your most trusted source: You.
It can be a heavy process, but it can also be extremely fun. Even funny.
Me: Will someone help me with this!
Also me: No, no not like that! Here, just let me do it.
Reach in. Pull relatable thought. Visualize it. Make it real. Keep it real.
Keep a light heart, and an open mind.
The next chapter will elaborate on what has been said here. It will also include a visualization exercise, designed to enhance your higher sensibilities.
