3 Streams Of Human Thought-Talk (Internal Communication)

3 Streams of Internal Human Communication

The flow of thought-talk (internal communication) through the human mind is called often self-talk or the stream of consciousness.  Many people are confused and falsely believe that all of the thought that passes through their mind is self-talk.  However, in reality, there are three distinct sources (or channels) of our internal thought:

1) Me & My Pride (MMP):  Some human thought-talk is indeed self-talk.  It’s source is simply the individual talking to herself/himself.  It is the self (or soul) mentally desiring, planning, pondering, reacting, emoting, analyzing, etc.

2) The Tempting & Tormenting Tide (TTTT):  Another source of the human inner voice is an external thought tide that flows into and out of the mind, sometimes seducing and sometimes scolding.  TTTT alternates between bringing various forms of allurement, anger, attitude, and accusation.  It is forceful, compulsive, coercive, self-destructive, and deceptive; and it requires much courage and effort resist TTTT.  Because of that many people fail to turn the tide and instead simply surrender to The Tempting & Tormenting Tide and become its obedient slave.

3) The Guide Inside (TGI):  The living God also releases internal communication inside the human mind in the form of insight, encouragement, direction/correction, warning, and revelation; through images, words, sounds, impressions, aha moments, etc.  TGI speaks like a whisper in a “still, small voice” and is gentle, kind, and loving; and can easily be resisted, ignored, or snuffed out.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
