Master Your Inner Dialogue

Master Your Inner Dialogue

Inner dialogue is one of our most basic characteristics. When we meet new people and situations, a little voice inside our head is constantly assessing this and evaluating that. Useful though it is, this little voice would have you believe that you and it are one and the same, that its goals are your goals.

The two best ways to overcome being overruled by this little voice are to meditate and to consciously practice positive inner dialogue.

Positive inner dialogue helps move us in the right direction, fosters synchronicity, and promotes spiritual development. With positive internal dialogue, we can create self-power.

When we find ourselves looking at the world and saying “There’s nothing out there for me,” we should probably also look into our hearts and ask, “If there’s nothing out there, is there anything in here?” We need to examine our inner dialogue to discover where we might be blocking the conscious energy flow, then remove the ego, step out of the way, and let the fire of the soul shine through us.

The spirit is reflected in impeccable speech and behavior, refraining from anything that could potentially be considered hurtful. The spirit is reflected in confidence, happiness, good humor, fearlessness, kindness and thoughtfulness. The quality of your inner dialogue is instantly obvious to other people.

Practice for Positive Inner Dialogue
Imagine that you are centered and totally at peace.
Imagine that you are looking at the world with knowingness and peace.
Imagine that all beings are your equal.
Imagine that you are not affected by flattery or criticism.
Imagine that you are focused on the journey, not the destination.
Imagine that in your presence all hostility is overcome by a profound peace.
Imagine that you’re detached from the outcome.
Imagine that a deeply profound ocean of calm exists in you that is not affected by any turbulence.
Imagine that love radiates from you like light from a bonfire.
Imagine that you are in love with everything and everybody. Imagine that you are intoxicated with love.
Imagine that the right answer comes to you spontaneously whenever you are confronted by any question.
Imagine that you know exactly what to do in every situation.

I like the sound of that ocean of calm and love radiating out from me like a bonfire but if I really did imagine all that I think I'd be practising a huge amount of self-deception!

Thank you Deepak - I'll have to do more imagining on two of those points, until 'practice makes perfect'.

Andrew H. : I've hesitated before commenting on the points you have learned, but I am disturbed by their tone. I hope you soon realize that they are all negative ie to overcome fear, you don't repeat that word, rather "I am confident that ..... " or as Deepak recommends : 'Imagine that abundance manifests in your life'
