The Problem Is In Your Head

20 September 2016 Written by 

When nothing outwardly is going on, there’s this “Itty Bitty Committee” that lives in the mind – and it never shuts up. Talking all the time, sometimes yelling, sometimes scolding and shaming, warning, comparing, judging, commenting on everything that is happening – it’s a running dialogue. Enough already!

That “Itty Bitty Committee” in my head is my old brain ticking away, centered around an ego that wants to be in charge and thinks it knows EVERYTHING. I learned that I have a choice about listening to the “Itty Bitty Committee.” I have learned that I can change the channel.

There is another channel that lives inside me – but it’s not in my brain. I call it “The Whispers of the Heart.” Those thoughts originate from my deeper truth that is connected to Source. Those thoughts tell the truth, always. I have learned that I can turn my attention away from the “Itty Bitty Committee” and instead tune into the Truth channel. The Truth channel sets things straight.

It’s a shift. A shift from the brain to the heart. For me, journaling was a good way to teach me how to connect with the Truth channel.  Journaling allows the inner Truth channel to speak, and having it written down allows me the privilege of going back to that Truth as often as I need to.

I always have a choice. Which channel will I listen to?

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
