Our words are so powerful, they carry so much energy that we are able to manifest anything within our lives by just a simple word. How we talk to others is a reflection of our inner self. How we talk to ourselves in our minds is a reflection of our true selves. What we fear, what we doubt, what we want etc. is all held within our inner selves and it comes to the surface in our inner dialogue. Our inner dialogues are extremely important in order to understand ourselves and how we feel about ourselves. The word is a powerful thing even when its not spoken – even when its used in secret conversations with ourselves. So all my little ” I don’t knows” to myself have been silently accumulating over the last 6 months and now have began to rear their nasty head in an accumulation of events that can either affirm a negative belief or allow me to acknowledge the need for change within myself yet again. There will always be room for improvement within oneself that’s for sure.
Our inner dialogue is a key to our outer existence or lives as a whole. We wouldn’t tell someone who was doubtful and fearful that they have every reason to be? We would tell them not to be silly, that they have all they need within them to succeed. So why don’t we tell ourselves that which we tell another? Our brain is wired the way we choose to think. Your inner dialogue is a good indication of who you believe yourself to be, so the more doubt, fear and apprehension you feel and reaffirm it through inner dialogue with yourself, the more you will witness and manifest those outcomes within your life, again affirming the negative. The opposite is a better choice. Sometimes we can’t avoid the hardships we have to face, life is full of ups and downs, but ultimately its our choice how we deal with the situation, do we allow it to rock our ground and feel doubt within ourselves? Or do we remind ourselves how truly strong and beautiful we are as a divine being and we can deal with everything. I believe the latter is a better choice.
What we acknowledge within our selves within our minds to be a solid truth is what we manifest in our lives, be it negative or positive, our lives are a reflection of our inner thinking.
