You might have noticed that if you speak to someone in a noisy, crowded room, the best thing to do is move closer and whisper near their ear. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was known to speak very, very softly and people had to move closer to hear her. She had mastered the art of intimate conversation no matter where she was. Furthermore, whispering grabs people’s attention because they think it is something only a few will hear and each person wants to be one of the few.
Yelling to be heard has the opposite effect – the louder you speak it compels others in the room; to speak louder. Similarly, that still, small voice within you does not compete with the mental chatter on the surface of your mind, nor does it seek to overpower the volume of the raucous world outside. If you want to hear your Inner Voice, no matter what is going on around you; you can tune in to that soft voice underneath the surrounding noise.
It is basically true that the more insistent voices in your head delivering messages that make you feel panicky or afraid; your authority will be questioned. Your Inner Voice is internalized from childhood or culture, and as such you only have half-truths about who you truly are. Your negative urgent messages stem from your disconnectedness from the center of your being, and their urgency is what catches your attention, as if it is who you truly are.
The other voice that whispers reassurances that everything is fundamentally okay simply delivers its message with quiet confidence. When you hear it, you know it speaks the truth. Generally, when you hear what your Inner Voice says, a powerful sense of calm settles over your entire being; it is like the wind of truth bringing in calmness and tranquility. The other voices and sounds, which were once dominant, fade into the background, suddenly seeming small and far away.
You may find that your communications in the world begin to be influenced by the quiet certainty of your Inner Voice more often. You will be less inclined to indulge in idle chatter as you become more interested in maintaining your connection to the whispers of truth of its message like the sound of the wind shaking the leaves of a tree. As you align yourself more with this quiet confidence of your Inner Voice, you become an extension of the whisper, penetrating the noise of the world and creating more peace, trust and confidence in your life and relationships.
