There comes a time in everyone’s life, hopefully, when what we have been trying to fix, perfect and improve in our own warped way has to be accepted, completely.
There is an inner longing that grows stronger inside of us that has a need for unconditional love above all else. Above all of the reaching, searching or grasping for something more than what is right here.
This realization that fixing and perfecting our voices, our bodies or our wounds has to come to an end.
That this outside need for approval from others or the nod of approval from ourselves is not enough anymore.
For singers we know how good it feels to sing really well and we also know the kind of dizzying affect it has on others, and we want nothing more than to always have our voice be like That.
We know it’s in us, this beauty, this freedom and this capacity for well, more.
This freedom can be found but not through the lens of perfection, it’s the other way around.
Perfection can be found through but through the doorway of freedom.
This is the path of authenticity, the path of loving ourselves versus fixing or altering ourselves.
To uncover the voice and for beauty to arrive and grow up inside we are asked to let go of any fixing, working, pushing and perfecting and to move towards an inner wholeness, an opening and an embracing of The Authentic Self.
When we move gently towards this search the inner space grows and fills us up from the inside and begins to bloom outwards.
The beauty of our voice is a direct reflection from this inner sound space.
This Tone is felt by others but in a quieter, more gentle way.
The healing sound of the voice then points others towards themselves rather towards you.
It’s a revelation.
Those statements that locked time into a small room along with their voice and carefulness crept up around them to replace freedom.
Once every 4 years we all sit down and watch these super athletes do feats that are incredible and unimaginable. But for the rest of the time we don’t watch them, we don’t see them train and work hard and push past their own inner voices that are begging them to stop.
