People think that what they believe is true even if they are faced with facts to the contrary. Belief is a frozen thought, and it is difficult for them to stop seeing it how they have always seen it. Belief is a waste of energy, because it always has to be defended and protected. Belief is a road block in your life, as you live your life from them. You believe that it is true, yet they are lies, and the tone of the voice will give it away (that it is a lie).
You might not notice at first, but your voice has a different tonal quality to it when you are speaking the truth. It is important that you be able to hear when you are telling a lie or speaking the truth. You have been a liar all your life, so there is only one voice you are accustomed to hearing from yourself, and that is the voice of a lie. Your voice will sound differently when you speak the truth. In speaking truth often enough, even if it is out loud to yourself, you will become accustomed to what it sounds like. You will begin to hear yourself clearly. Most of us don’t hear ourselves at all.
Do an experiment and say something that is the truth (I ate the cookie, or I slammed the door…etc) and then tell a lie (I didn’t eat the cookie, or I didn’t slam the door…), and listen to the tone of your voice. If you listen closely you will hear a difference in the tone. This will assist you when you are dealing with issues that aren’t so “cut and dry” as slamming a door or eating a cookie. You will be able to tell if you are telling the truth or not.
If you notice an irritating quality to your voice, don’t try to change it as that will almost always make it more pronounced. Sometimes you might want to experiment with exaggerating the tone so you can really hear it, or so you can become more aware of it. Play with it a bit to see what happens with your voice when you are excited or angry or feel guilty – notice if your voice changes for each of these, or if they are the same for some and not for others.
So speak what you have to say in several different ways.
Often you will hear me ask you to say, “I’m the world’s biggest liar,” (or something similar) and I will ask you to repeat what I say. The only reason I ask you to do that is so your ear can learn to hear the truth from you. If I can get you to say, even in jest, that you are the most vain person or the most unworthy person,or the biggest liar etc. on the planet, then maybe you can hear what it sounds like when you say it and hear if it is different from all the other things you say.
All the thoughts about good and bad and right and wrong or even worthy and unworthy are all beliefs we have accepted (as truths). These beliefs don’t just affect a tiny little speck in your life. They are in everything you do and say every day.
This is why it is important for you to be aware of the tone of your voice, as you are fooled by your beliefs about what is truth or a lie.
