Disconnecting That Voice In Your Subconscious Head

Last Update: April 18, 2013
FRUSTRATION! FRUSTRATION! FRUSTRATION!

This has been a week of it. Spending hours on tedious little things. Trying to find a solution to the tiniest issues. Only to find out that in the end they were so easy. Attempting now to breathe slow.

So, this morning, when I sat down at my computer, I found myself frozen, just staring at the screen. I think I was expecting it to talk back to me and tell me what to do. Silence. Staring, staring, staring, fear gripping me like a wicked vice.

The voice in my head.

I know that voice in my head was talking to me, thus the vice-like frozen state. Not my conscious voice. I can hear that. But my unconscious one. I'm pretty sure it was telling me nasty little things.

Then I started thinking consciously.

"Why in the world," I asked my conscious self, "Am I just staring at my computer screen, watching the devil stare back at me?" And then an angel appeared. No, not really. But, over-dramatization sometimes helps the read.

So the angel in my head said...

"You have met frustration (the devil indeed) at every IM online corner this week. So your subconscious mind is telling you to just give up. What better way to end frustration? So, let me shed a little light on the issue: Don't give up and the devil will go away (at least for awhile since he never gives up either!)"

So the solution to disconnecting that unconscious voice in your head is: Talk To The Angel In Your Head because the devil in your head will always be lurking about.

My head is saying, "Stop this procrastinating writing thing and get back to work!" Devil or Angel? Who cares? I know what I have to do now. Question to your conscious self: "Are you working on your site today?" Good, I knew you were going to say that!

I'm the same way Sherry. It seems when you get going you wonder, "what was so hard about that?" I know there are those out there who feel a lot like I do at times and I want to encourage them and also give them a chance to laugh at themselves a little cuz we all gotta do that. This was just me laughing at myself. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment.

Love this! I find myself being pretty good at procrastinating even though I want to get stuff done on my site and article writing, I catch myself doing the same thing! Which is silly since once I get started writing something, I do enjoy it!

The angel and the devil. Reminds me of Disney animation with each one whispering in your ear. :)

PS. What do you want to write about? Your answer should be in about 500 words or so. lol

Okay, Kal, were you trying to say this was too long? "LOL" is used only when you're kidding I think, and I don't think you were. :) Tell me what you really mean. No LOL attached. :)

It was a friendly nudge, nudge, wink, wink as they say back home in England.

When staring at the screen, you are looking at something encouraging! So if someone asked me a question, I could probably answer their question with something to write about for quite a few hundred words.

Hence, the question, What do you want to write about?

I thought it was funny to throw a question and therefore your query above sort of created a few words, lol.

In other words (no pun intended) If you get stuck, find a question and likely the creative juices start flowing and voila! you have a paragraph or two or three and so on and all of a sudden you have an article.

Yes, you are so right, Kal. I hadn't really thought about it quite that way, but it certainly clicked when you wrote it. ;) Thanks!

It is funny that when you asked what do you want to write about my answer would be I do not know.
but I took what you said a little further and I am sure this is what you are saying if someone asked me a question about my niche that i am passionate about .
You could not get me to shut up. like ask me about my grand kids. well now there I go lol

Thats is great Kal thanks and thanks again for your awesome blogs love them

Hope to see you tomorrow at the hang out.

I guess depending on the topic, the first question will get you rolling......

Just a few words in your answer and then I would say "why do you not know what to write?" and again your answer will be "because" and I will keep asking questions until you have something that looks like a topic about why most people could relate to not knowing what to write about.

We can test it if you like.

I'll just keep asking questions based on your answers! :)

Just an idea... food for words/thought.

I understand what you are saying. I find the way that works for me is to just start anywhere even if it is nonsense.

Good idea, Patricia! I can go with nonsense. :) Thanks for reading and commenting.
