BE STILL AND KNOW-
The precision of the sound brings the stillness into being. Like the threading of a needle we are asked to be extremely precise about where we are headed and where to place our attention. This knowing and confidence allows for stillness to be experienced. Again, it is from this space and place that we are able to see where we need and want to go.
Without this we are lost in the woods in the chaos of movement and energy adrift without a shore and no light house to guide us.The stillness gives us the opportunity to feel the depth of our being as well as our presence with all that is around us. The movement has to pay attention to the authority of our stillness and meets its command to Be Still and Know.
The singing bones give us our anchor to our body to be still and feel the resonation in and through us. We can then get in touch with the emotions that are present. The singing bones can reflect the emotional energy and build a relationship with emotions and resonation. Our emotions are a reflection from our connection. When we receive our own vibration and resonance then others will hear and see us. Using the focus of our minds we thread the sound through a precise portal outwards following through every note threading our sound out from our 3rd eye.
The tone reflects our emotional connection if we are being mindful and reflective.This intense threading of our essential being is two-fold. It sends our essence outwards as well as inwards and in doing so has the potential of bringing the stillness of the Present Moment. It is an experience of the present moment that is a tangible felt experience. It is as though this focused sound parts the seas between the worlds of spirit and earth and both are met in the moment. We know at once where we are and who’s we are. Our spiritual essence, life force and breath combined with the earthly bones being resonated and penetrated.
The felt sense of this is one of joy, beauty and pleasure.It reminds us of what is true, real and sustainable in our lives. It strikes and disturbs that which is not real and is of time; past or future. In my experience of this our nervous systems are charged and become reminded that there is indeed a frontal lobe to add to the picture of our wholeness, not just our reptilian fight or flight experience of what we have accrued inside of habitual reactions.
This is not only important but crucial to the evolution of our species to allow singing and sound to become our true rightful passage to joy and love.In my experience of teaching over the years singing has been triggering our fight or flight for millennia and setting fire to our senses in a way that, depending upon each persons neurology can be very eroding for our nervous systems.
It is not the fault of our beautiful singing voices, but, the hiding from being seen and heard from ourselves and others that puts the lid on our free voice from knowing itself. We need to light our senses on all cylinders, the cylinders that fire and fuel us into the now, not the then. This is not only possible but inevitable in our growth as our use and awareness of sound grows and unfolds before our very eyes and ears. I am humbled to my knees by this knowing.
