The 3 Inner Voices

Video Course

Learn to discern the different influential voices within you.

A Welcome Letter from Salima, Kamila and Dr. Jaffe

Dear Friends on the Journey,

With the many distractions competing for our attention, we can often feel pulled in hundreds of directions at once. You may be asking yourself:

“How can I keep this feeling going every day?”

“What can I do now to be more aligned?”

“Where can I learn more?”

After we awaken to the truth that there is more to be had when we foster our connection with God, we begin to question what our next steps are.

And as we do, it is important to also ask yourself: 

“What voice am I listening to?”

At the Institute for Spiritual Healing, one of the core teachings is to be able to discern what inner voices you are listening to.

Is it that of the ego? Is it the voice of the darkness, or saboteur?

Or are you listening closely to the voice of God as it guides you toward a loving new life and reality?

Without even being aware of them, these voices dictate the choices we make and either lead us to joy and freedom or they bring us into pain and unhappiness. 

For those that aren’t sure which voice they are listening to in their lives, Ibrahim, Kamila, and Salima have released a teaching that helps you understand the difference between each one and how each affects your life. 

We are thrilled to introduce to you an incredible video course: The 3 Inner Voices.

We will teach you how to discern which voice is most prevalent in your life, and how to listen to the true voice of God in its boundless love and guidance. Easing depression, anxiety, and bringing peace to your life in each and every moment. 

In this video course you will learn about:

  • The Voice of the Self 
  • The Voice of Darkness
  • The Voice of the Divine

God’s infinite love can only be listened to from the deep heart, and you need nothing more than to know how you FEEL when listening to a voice to know whether it is for your highest good or not.

All faiths and all paths are welcome.

Peace & Blessings,

Ibrahim Jaffe, MD

What are The 3 Inner Voices?

In Sufism, there are three main voices that impact our lives. The voice that rings the loudest within you – though it may not be the voice with your highest good behind it – will hold the most power over your daily life.

The first of the three voices is what Sufism refers to as the voice of the Self. This can be many smaller voices of your inner child, the controller, the protector, or even the parts of you that feel afraid. All of these subpersonalities exist in combination with each other to create the voice of the Self, but one eventually rises above the others to create the primary voice of Self within you. This is often the voice we are most aware of, and influences our daily thoughts about life, God, and ourselves.

The second of the three voices is what Sufis refer to as the voice of Darkness. This is the saboteur that, as we say in Sufism, is both outside and inside of us. It often comes in the form of others’ voices that live in our subconscious minds, showing where we are distanced from faith or trust in God. Affecting everything we do, this voice presses us toward fear rather than love as we try to heal our wounds and walk closer to God. This voice is often what holds us back from taking divinely-guided action to better ourselves and our lives.

The third and final voice is the one that rises above the rest and will come to mean the most in your life: the voice of God. It can come to us in the form of Angels or direct transmissions from behind the veil. This is the voice that leads you to your highest, holiest, and healthiest life. Though there will still be trials in order to grow and learn, the voice of God will lead you to the path of least resistance. To the path that is made for​ you, not one that simply happens to​ you.

As multifaceted beings, we must address the different voices within ourselves and discern which of them are here to help us expand, and which ones keep us in a state of disease and feeling “stuck.” Follow along with the teachers as they address the different processes and voices in which you can find the guidance you seek and the healing on God’s path to peace, joy, freedom, and Oneness.
