    When Im happy or sad,

    my inner voice always sings instead of talking, without me thinking about it. Has this ever happened to you?

    I need to do this more often in moments of

    doubt. My emotions and behaviour, based on the past, are causing me to react and think in a way I don't need or want anymore. I need to listen more to my recent inner voice. Convince myself about what I can do, what I achieved and the beautiful person I am. That's just so hard...

    once, wished all the races would just get along.

    Then I pondered the horror of groupthink. We need to check each other. Uchecked group think has brought us many tragedies. Slavery, holocaust, religious wars, the space program--just kidding about the space program :-). We should learn to agree to disagree without bloodshed...

    Hi I joined the website hoping to find someone

    who I can talk to and shares my... umm shall we say...condition... I hear voices in my head, they talk to me, to each other, apart from me, about me, but in pretty sure they are me. At least in some way but this is not my inner voice that I know most people have, I know this...

    Until it says to dance in the rain.

    Naked. Oh I wish I was a child again. No breasts... Careless abandonment dancing in the rain. Innner voice. 'what will you whisper to me while I am sitting in jail for indecent exposure'

    Your mind has different dimensions weird,

    sensitive, childish, ....etc and all of them have distinct voices, this is the reason why our inner voices are so numerous sometimes

    Quiet.....

    There is a small still voice inside of me that whispers truth.  It calms and encourages me.  It keeps me safe from harm. When I am listening.

    There was a point several years back

    when I used to think just blocking out any thoughts and gut feelings was okay, even dare I say it more grown up but I found it just left my heart frozen. Since exploring rather more of my child-like self, I find myself more finding time to sit quietly and tune into what I am...

    I dropped out from college an year back becoz i

    My inner voice is quiet

    and only speaks once. If I don't listen to it, I will make a mistake. When I do listen and act, I feel that I have achieved a small victory, and am back on-track.

    I feel like my inner voice is GOD.

    One time I was is sitting somewhere, and the voice said 'get up'. I ignored it, and then I wished I didn't. A huge dog, came running to where I was sitting. It was not only up to my waist, but it was thick as well. His owner didn't have him on the leash, and the dog started...

    Although these days we argue a lot,

    the little voice thinks he knows better than me but I'll prove it wrong. Sometimes I even have full conversations with my inner monologue, it's actually pretty interesting.

    This Is a Goal For Me

    I listen to it, I feel it is right and know that it is what I should follow. Yet I then share it and let others stamp upon it with their heavy weapons of 'common sense' and 'practicality'. I silence my soul and my heart in favour of the voices of the brain which are often not my...

    My inner voice has always challenged me,

    as if there was another thing inside me. Sometimes it has been quite harsh, but with a little help from others, it has seen that there is no good thing to come out of that. I used to keep it to myself, but over time I have been fortunate to find people who also want to hear...

    One thing that really changed my life was the

    moment I started to train myself to trust my gut feeling. Your subconscious mind knows way more than you think you know. Your "gut feeling" is your subconscious mind trying to tell you something, trust it, you'll be right 99.99% of the time. My life has never been the same since...

    People often say "If only I had listened to my

    intuition." Never have I heard anyone say "If only I had ignored my intuition." Intuition is the voice of our inner selves... The part of ourselves in tune with all around us. It is the clear vision and expression of what is real and true... The Inner SatNav of our...

    If someone is doing something wrong to you,

    it doesn't help anyone to keep it bottled up inside. Let the person know in a respectful way they they hurt you in whatever way. Be specific, be clear, and be confident. People will always respect you if you show you aren't afraid to stand up for yourself. Sometimes people...

    For almost a year my gut was saying something

    was off, so I got creative and yes I was so dead on it scared the hell out of me. Now that I know the truth I have the upper hand. My husband has come up with some dumb answers and all I can hear my head tell me is "if the answer is confusing then the truth is missing".

    A Voice

    I don't really like the process of creating

    drawing designing n al but i have a very imaginative mind and do very well creatively. I love the feeling a completed creative project gives me. Is it an emotional need i am wanting from my work and is it right to do so or should i spend my time doing something i enjoy?

    It's never failed me.

    Even if sometimes it's not based on any solid form of logic at least I can be fully accountable for any outcome that arises from choosing to listen to it (whether bad or good) and therefore can never have regrets regardless of that outcome.

    I've always felt an internal conflict

    Sometimes I feel like a lonely rowboat floating

    on a vast ocean. It isn't a sad feeling, it's peaceful to look around and to see no shore. I can go in any direction and find something unexpected. I am the most connected to myself and the universe in those moments of complete freedom and endless possibility.

    It's Funny...

    When you meet someone like you. Its rare, but you can def feel your inner voices talking to each other. I don't know how to explain it really, but its almost like you have a connection with them without even knowing them. Or something like that lol
