When we sing together we join in vibration that acts as a sort of connective tissue. 
Coming together in this sound and singing helps us to feel and to connect with that what has been held out of our awareness, before that coming together.
The vibrations capture something that we had no idea of was there before.
Like they take a photo of where you are and show it to you through the actually vibrations of the music. 
 
Singing can also take care of some immediate symptoms simply by its presence and ability to be this ‘connective tissue.’
Participants arrive and share what they are feeling – aches and pains, headaches etc, and after a short time the symptoms magically disappear.
But make no mistake that there is a deeper level that is being touched every time we move into the stillness, light and beauty of true vibration.
 
This conscious connecting in voice and vibration is reshuffling the whole foundation of who you are.
Being held in its gaze is very subtle but very powerful.
Sound, singing and light want to remind you of who you really are and it’s not really interested in anything else that is in the way of this reminding, or rewinding of you.
 
Now we are all quite skilled at ‘checking out’ to this powerful connection otherwise anyone who sings would be enlightened!
It takes a container of deep presence to hold the light of the sound while others go into it and sing.
I call this Presonance.  A concoction of resonance and presence. 
Someone has to be awake inside of it, otherwise it’s just like going on an acid trip or getting high and this might feel good for a moment but losing our balance is not the point.
 
Over time there is a tolerance that is built to Withstand this Light.
It, the light wants to wipe the slate clean in you, however, the control that we all have will have none of that and so it takes tiny drops of sound, light and vibration to widdle and burn away the grip of control that we have built up in us over the years.
 
Sounds like fun?

Chiaroscuro – dark and light

Mind your tone! Watch your tone with me! You may or may not remember these words from your younger days? We can’t help the tone of our voice telling on us! The truth is inside the tone and not the actual words we are saying. It is our Living Word. Let’s see what’s...

We are like trees…

We are like trees… We are like trees. Twisting around life the best we can. Twisting, growing, bending and changing into the beautiful works of art that we are. She said, ‘but how do I untwist myself?’ She didn’t know she was twisted and closed off until she tried to...

Shake off the nasty…

Shake off the nasty…

Those statements that locked time into a small room along with their voice and carefulness crept up around them to replace freedom.

Singing and Safety

I did a podcast yesterday and the interviewer shared her experience of when she was a child she was told by a family member to be quiet after she sang.  She shared that at the time that she was singing she felt so open and free and then a familiar voice said to...

Digging roots in the playground…

I call the root chakra the Playground. It is the ground of play that we as children were raised in.  Play started with our Mothers and the play between Mother and child with cooing and the wiggling of arms and legs and such as well as the playful and loving sound...

I think confidence is overrated. I really don’t think we’re built like this - to work to achieve confidence. It takes courage to move in this world, and it takes courage to sing. Our vulnerability is our strength and when we try too hard to be confident inadvertently...

Getting out of the way!

I was trying to help Louis find a new pathway for his voice using boring old musical scales.  Up and down, up and down with each time introducing very subtle movements for him to try.  Listen to the vowel! Focus your gaze forward! Soften your eyes! Enjoy yourself!  I...

Rants of a voice teacher…

The rants of a voice teacher…. Do you know the kind of mess that is being made inside the body because of the cork, words, truth etc that gets stuck in the throat?  Not expressing and being silent creates a bottle neck of energy that is like a log jam in the...

The Pleaser and the Voice

Are you a people pleaser?  Putting others needs before yours is understandable yes, but here's the thing, it kills the authentic voice.  Having a voice for real is about coming face-to-face with this protective, knee-jerk grip that speaks first out of our mouths out...

Open & Release Your Voice!

The singing voice gets a bad rap. It’s criticized and judged from a very early age. I don’t know what compels grade school music teachers to shame innocent children into ‘standing at the back‘, or to ‘mouth the words,‘ but it happens all the time. There are so many...
