What is Inner Voice?


I’m sure you have heard of the term “inner voice”! it’s that little, dim and whispering voice coming from the depth of your thoughts telling to do things, or reprimanding you for doing this and not doing that. Generally speaking, this voice can affect every aspect of your life, and if you succumb to its power, you are doomed and you will become like a slave to yourself. Almost everyone experienced that little voice whispering and telling you to “take the remaining cookie”, ordering “extra fries or coke”. It tells you to “talk to that girl now” or “that man is full of crap!”…etc. Another picture of that voice is when you hear it in the morning telling you ”not go to work or school today”. It tells you that you’ve been doing this for a long time and it is time to rest. This is the destructive side of the inner voice where it drags you to be a negative person, a person who becomes a slave and who is always lazy and sluggish.



Our ability to sense the value of ourselves affects directly our ability to appreciate ourselves, that’s why we should re-evaluate our actions and have little appreciation and say that we deserve happiness. Well, the destructive inner voice will be the hindrance to that appreciation if it persists to tell you that: you will never succeed, and you cannot do it, and you are not worthy of it.



We might feel more confident of ourselves when we can correct our actions in a positive way depending on our values and inner social convictions. Having trust in your abilities is the way to train your inner voice and force it to be positive. No one can claim that there are super humans who are perfect by nature. We all have our flaws and make mistakes, but the difference here is to have the desire as well as the aspiration to be a better person. In other words, accepting ourselves as we are will lead eventually to self-confidence, which will lead consequently to better understanding our inner selves. Thus, you turn from being a slave, who’s manipulated by sheer voice coming from nowhere, into a person who’s is at peace with their souls and who actually control their own inner voice and direct them to be constructive.


How to train your destructive inner voice:


Your voice is louder than inner voice: how to avoid the destructive effects of the inner voice is the key here and there are no certain “methods” per say. It all depends on the person and the way he/she reacts to their voice negativity. If you hear it saying: “I can’t do this” or “I don’t deserve this much”, fight it with a firm assertive voice and say “yes, I can, yes I do deserve even more. Vocalizing this positivity will eliminate the inner voices and neutralize their bad remnants. If you keep doing this and always assert yourself, you might have a trained inner voice which we call perseverance.


Avoid the Bad Experiences of the Past: everyone failed in the past many times, and there is no shame in it. But the shameful thing is to let your past overshadow your present and future. This past presence might weaken your positive energy and let your inner voice take over, because your mind will judge reality depending on the previous experiences of failure. For example, you had a bad experience driving a car and you had few accidents. When you have the chance to grab the wheel again, your inner voice will scream in your head and say: “what the heck are you doing? Get off the car or you’ll kill someone”. Well, that is a bad past experience affecting your presence, consequently, preventing you from being positive in anything.

I always listen to my gut is the way I've put it for a long time. It is that inner voice that gives us that little warning when we are about to make a bad decision. I found your hub to be very interesting. Rated up!

Listen to your heart....! We must have ever heard this expression. Actually, all positive whispers come from ourselves; but the negative ones usually come from the bad experience(s) in one{'s} live....
