What is vital for each of us to remember is that we have power.
We have the capacity to create our experience of the world painfully or joyfully.
Have you ever noticed the ongoing dialogue you have with the voice inside your head?
This voice is telling us a story all the time.
We invite you to make friends with the voice inside your head, your Maker of meaning.
You can change the story you’re hearing.

In an article by Chris Hedges, he eloquently describes that “The role of knowledge and art, as the ancient Greeks understood, is to create ekstasis (ecstasy) which means standing outside one’s self to give our individual life and struggle meaning and perspective.” Link
No matter what is going on in our lives, what if there is the possibility that we can stand outside of ourselves, reclaim a lost power and feel ecstatic all at the same time?
1. Now that you’ve met your maker, try seeing the “drama” going on around you as a work of art. As the artist you can change how things look, feel and sound to you.
2. Remember, everyone has a voice or two inside their heads, you’re not alone.
3. As you notice the chatting voice in your head, smile and ask it if it needs a drink of water. Simple kindness creates great change.
Want to have some fun? Get curious.
As you notice the voice inside your head, ask it some questions.
In the midst of all the chatter, there may be some gems that can be used to quiet the voice and calm the message.
The Untethered Soul by Michael A. Singer
Here’s a book we’ve read aloud to each other many times. It’s rare that words on a page can point so clearly to a set of high speed processes in our brains that we live with but don’t often notice.
“ In case you haven’t noticed, you have a mental dialogue going on inside your head that never stops. It just keeps going and going. Have you ever wondered why it talks in there? How does it decide what to say and when to say it? How much of what it says turns out to be true? How much of what it says is even important? And if right now you’re hearing, “ I don’t know what you’re talking about, I don’t have any voice inside my head!” — That’s the voice we’re talking about” p.7.
Personally, when I’m trying to be really nice to one of my inner voices, I offer it a martini rather than a glass of water… Agreement is unilateral and all of them are much happier that way…
