For starters, embrace common humanity and know that we ALL have that voice.

Let’s approach it with curiosity and love, like we would for our most caring friend. Play with it.

Maybe create an algorithm for what to do in the moment: “IF I hear that voice, THEN I will _____.” Take a walk? Repeat a mantra—a tool of the mind? Both? Whatever works.

Then, learn from the experience! It’s all just data. Throw on the lab coat. Study it.

Zoom out, see the situation from the perspective of the moon and recognize that it’s “no big deal.” Revisit what might have caused the voice to surface and how to do better next time.
