What you are describing sounds like the intuition i.e. the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. If we define mind as "the faculty of consciousness and thought" as it often is, then in so far as one is conscious of such "inner voice" such as you describe we are conscious of it in the mind. When you state " we can learn to discern between the two" what faculty of discernment are you referring to other then the mind? In other words, where do you experience the "inner voice" other then in your mind? Perhaps the inner voice may be realized in the mind during a hazardous situation, before one's thoughts have had time to catch up. Nevertheless, both the voice and the thoughts occur in the mind or synonymously in one's consciousness.
