There was such a long period of time in my life when my song was stuck and locked away in a part of myself that I had lost access to it altogether. As I regained connection to my inner music, it became outer music. It felt like a miracle. And I learned something…. something that Salim Michael says so well:
“Take care… not to interere in any way with the tone of your voice, or purposely attempt to change it simply because you may not like its intonation, but continue patiently and dispassionately to listen. You will then find that your voice will, of its own, take on another tone, a special tone, one which will feel astonishingly true, tranquil, familiar, and natural, corresponding to … who you are.”
Just being with your voice, your sound, your vibration, simply and with curiosity rather than judgement, allows the voice to grow and expand and the music in every human heart to emerge. We can’t all be Mariah Carey, but we all can sing and enjoy the experience of our voices.
Have you been singing a little bit?
How has that been for you?
If you ever want to reach out and just talk about singing – anytime – I’m available.
Its one of my favorite subjects 😉
With that in mind, I’ve created a two-hour attunement called “Sounding Through The Chakras.”
Click through to get more details on what its about and stay tuned for dates/times coming in the future.
And this is for everyone.
No singing ability is required for this at all.
I think you’re really going to enjoy the process.
Also, I found out this week that “In Dreams” was nominated for Best Vocal Album + Track of the Year for my version of Tina Malia’s song, “Heal This Land,” for the 2019 One World Music Awards.
I am, of course, delighted.
It means so much to have our art acknowledged, doesn’t it?
There are a few events coming in the next weeks where we can meet up in person!
Have a look and choose one that’s convenient to where you are in Los Angeles 🙂
P.S. LA peeps – I hope you won’t mind me sending you a reminder about these coming events before the next Sunday Special goes out. Looking forward to seeing you!
