We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry.
Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.
I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.
Here are they:
1.The Animal Voice
The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, and other factors necessary for our survival. If you are hungry, this voice will constantly talk about food, and it will try to help you find food. If you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.
2.The Ego Voice
This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.
The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.
The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality.
Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.
3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God
Knowing the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. It cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.
This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.
It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must ignore.
Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.
