Balancing the Internal “Board of Directors”
Voice Dialogue* is an empowering tool
that can help people reduce their stress levels
by creating more internal balance.
For many, internal “power struggles” are common, but often are unconscious and ignored. For example, Anna’s medical doctor referred her to Trina after she was showing signs of CHRONIC STRESS LEVELS:
- Digestive challenges
- Insomnia (busy mind, unable to turn off her worrying at night)
Trina explained to Anna that we all have a variety of aspects and parts of ourselves that show up in different situations. For example, our professional “Work Self” is probably quite different than the self that plays with our pets. We might be serious and no-nonsense at work and be playful and silly with our pets.
Each of us has various selves that come together to help us manage particular aspects of our lives.
Because of Anna’s health challenges, Trina worked with her using Voice Dialogue. Together they explored who was on Anna’s internal “Board of Directors.”
This diagram illustrates the various opposite “selves” that made up Anna’s internal “Board of Directors” when she began working with Trina.
As you can see inside the box on the lower right: the “Primary Selves” are the parts that are strong (on the Board of Directors), whereas the “Disowned Selves” aren’t available to offer balance (aren’t on the Board of Directors).
In Anna’s case, she had a super high-achiever self at the top, the Pusher/ “Do-er.” This part of her personality helped her accomplish lots of tasks at work. She was successful at work; however, her health was suffering because she lacked access to the opposite part, the “Being self.”
Now keep in mind, the Pusher/ “Do-er” is a wonderful asset on an internal “Board of Directors” —
IF he or she is not continually driving pedal to the metal toward BURNOUT.
In fact, many business professionals (and stay-at-home parents) have FABULOUS Pusher/ “Do-ers,” but without the polar opposite, the “Being Self” they risk burning themselves out.
By contrast, the “Being Self” knows when to pull back, relax, meditate, recharge and can offer valuable intuitive advice for the person’s business as well as personal life.
Now back to Anna.
She worked with Trina using Voice Dialogue and began to understand that her well-meaning Pusher/ “Do-er” was driving her toward exhaustion.
By accessing and integrating her disowned “Being Self” through regular meditation and other relaxing, recharging activities, Anna’s anxiety quieted down. In addition, her digestion improved and she was finally able to turn off her busy mind at night.
Restorative sleep uplifted Anna’s moods and increased her ability to appreciate and ENJOY her life.
Voice Dialogue is a valuable tool to help people understand and utilize their various selves to increase internal balance and integration.
As a result, people often:
- Have greater control over their lives
- Consciously manage their behaviors with more ease
(with less inner “power struggles”)
- Reduce their stress levels
- Increase their health and wellness
- Achieve more success — personally and professionally
