How do you use the witness voice?

The internal language pattern is “what is Larry [ or your name or this body] experiencing?” I just used it to identify a pattern I was stuck in and to get ideas for a change. It may work because the language pattern creates some dissociation from the ongoing flow of feeling, while allowing impersonal and analytic thought to continue working. It is important to pause after asking the question, then experience what responses the mind sends up. Often unexpected!
