Who’s that talking inside my head?
I am so sick of hearing her voice rattling around up there and cluttering my conscious mind. Doesn’t she know I have more important things to do with my time than visit yesterday’s regrets.
Have you lost control of the blabbermouth in your mind? The voice that never seems to stop telling you what you are not doing and judging everything you do.
It’s a conundrum…..a real puzzler. I tend to think that I am in charge of the voice, and then the voice goes in a different direction than my conscious mind was thinking just seconds before. How does that even happen? Why do I not have any control over that annoying voice; although sometimes she seems smarter than my conscious mind?
My Revelation: It’s the subconscious mind barging in and interrupting; just like an annoying child trying to get its mom’s attention. I know from experience that if I don’t acknowledge the interruption from my ego driven subconscious I will get no peace. However, the subconscious is the avenue to revelations. (Conundrum!)
The mind of the subconscious holds all the unsuccessful attempts to change a sow’s ear into a silk purse and neatly stores them in the subconscious. Every time we judge the couture of a co-worker it’s neatly stored in the subconscious, etc. There is plenty of room for our bias on all subjects to wait in perfect stasis for an opportunity to appear in the drama of our lives.
I wish I could honestly tell you how to quiet the voice once and for all, but I can’t. I can tell you however that I have made peace with her as we blend into our irreverent relationship.
Never forget to kiss your ego goodnight…Alexandra Alexander
