Uncovering the Voice and Discovering Our Beauty – THE AUTHENTIC VOICE
(With excerpts from ‘Uncovering the Voice – Valborg Webeck-Scardstrom (1925)
“When the teacher and artist has turned towards research as the direction of the inner and spiritual, he enters on a path of slow and laborious wandering. He is approaching experiences that will shake him, bring him pain, doubt, happiness – in short, everything that stirs a person most deeply in his soul. In truth, he will not come easily to what must be called the research-results of his particular work.”
This process uncovers and discovers beyond words who we truly are in the spiritual sense of the word. This process wakes up and shakes up what needs to be disturbed and brought to the surface for a renegotiation of truth or not truth.
By the activation of these subtle, inner landscapes of tongue, palates, jaw, mouth and head along with the eyes we wake up our unconscious cast aside parts of us to see with fresh eyes the world of magic within everything. It’s time.
“In the face of that which wills to manifest itself…”
Through the singing voice, this invitation and at the same time, demand, for us to step aside and allow this spiritual being to manifest itself through us like a gentle wind blowing away unnecessary gross material thoughts and structures.
This work as much as it is the connecting to the body, it is only then that we do this to prepare the body to allow this wind of the voice to blow through the body without the material body hindering any of the willful nature and trapping its invisible nature along the way.
“For truly whoever will climb up to that higher reality must step through a narrow portal, the portal of a new kind of sensibility.”
Access to this higher reality and this narrow portal can be thought of as the upper realms of the spiritual chakras in the sixth and seventh chakras, these are the portals and the opportunities. It seems this is where the real work is to uncover and discover the wonders that are found here. In the bat cave of our upper realms. Because, as contrast is our guide, it illuminates our lower realms from which we are trapped inside of through beliefs and contracted, compressed trauma.
“The conditions for finding the real and the true is: to wait in humility and unshakable perseverance for those hours in which the deeper mysteries of the soul desire to reveal themselves.”
One of the goals among many, as I repeat myself over and over, is to develop a contrast between the belief that we are not beautiful and the experience of our beauty, directly.
To uncover and work through the levels that lie in the way of this beauty is the work of the Authentic Voice. It is not for the faint of heart because of the earth shattering discovery and discoveries that beauty brings to our earthliness reveals nothing other than our divine essence. And this is what we are covering over, hence the work of the Voice, to uncover the truth of who we are.
This uncomfortable and difficult journey of burning through these covers is slow and laborious if we are to be very honest, and we do need to be honest.
Everything it seems is two-fold. The work of uncovering is at first to attach to and connect to this landscape of our earthly bones and body, before we are allowed even a smidgen of truth to shine through our bones and light up our minds.
The trap is that we stay there and stop the search for beauty, trading it in for the trappings and safety of our earth, our bones, our reality. This is a necessary step, however, without a guide to keep us moving forward and upward towards beauty which awaits us, however, only a very few will reach these heights. Like climbing Mount Everest, we lose a great deal of souls on the way up to the summit.
