Authenticity  

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. 

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… 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.

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...

Reclaiming Our Natural Power

‘At first we must distinguish and then we unite’ - Goethe Singing requires us to separate the body parts to identify what the role is for each part. For example the throat, solar plexus, the rib cage and belly.  What does each part do? How does it assist the voice to...

The walk to the stage… So you’ve worked really hard on your art whether that’s singing, dancing, acting or speaking.   You’ve spent years developing, practicing and honing your talent and you want to share it with your audience.  You’ve developed your voice and you...

Exercising My Will – The developmental stages of the will centre.

Can you exercise your will and state your side in an argument?  Do you even know what your side is? I like to look at situations, and especially heated discussions, from ‘above the battlefield’ in order to try to understand both sides of the equation. This can...
