Our Inner Dialogue

- POSTED ON: Feb 06, 2013


There is a continuous conversation going on in everyone's head. This conversation goes on from the moment of waking until falling asleep.

The inner dialogue continues while working, studying, reading, watching TV, talking, walking, eating, etc. There is a constant judging of people, commenting on what is going on, planning, gossiping, and mental conversations with people.

These inner dialogues bring about a snowball effect. The more we conduct them, the more we become chained to them and unable to stop them. When the emotions are also evoked, more power, energy and attachment are added. This affects our behavior, judgment and performance.

When our inner dialogue is negative, it strengthens any negative attitude and behavior. Negative inner dialogues are very common for just about everyone.

The process and effect of these inner conversations is similar to the way affirmations work. Constant thinking about the same subject affects the subconscious mind, which consequently, accepts these thoughts and words and acts on them.

Negative inner dialogues bring negative results, and Positive inner dialogues bring positive results.

It is not so easy to mentally separate oneself from the thoughts and words the flow through the mind.  However, over and over again, we can work to keep our attention on what is going inside our heads, and eventually we will be able to become aware of the inner dialogue for longer periods of times. Watching the mind and what is going on inside it helps us develop detachment, and this makes it easier to take control of the mind and its chatter.

Whenever we catch ourselves conducting a useless, futile conversation with ourselves, stop it.   Change it to something more useful and meaningful. Replace the subject, and the words. It is just like listening to a recording. So replace it with another recording that we like. We can change the words of the inner dialogue to positive ones, about good health, happiness and success. 

The video below is an amusing Example of Inner Dialogue.
