What is your relationship with your voice?
How well can you hear your voice and it’s needs?
Our voice is really not separate from us. Your voice is a part of you, it is you. Still it can feel like it is separate. Hearing your voice can bring a lot of emotions and thoughts. Maybe you are even afraid to hear your own voice. The cycle of not being satisfied with your voice and criticizing it can go on and on, never allowing to listen to what is really going on. It can feel like your voice is totally disconnected with what you really want to say.
More than judgement our voice needs nourishment.
If we think of our body, the way that it is nourished or NOT nourished affects our whole being. If you’re really hungry, you might start to feel irritated, tired, out of energy. Lack of important nutrients can show up as imbalances in body’s health. So naturally you nourish your body. Your voice is not any different – any ”cranks” or difficulties in your voice are signs of nutrients missing.
It is not a sign that your voice sucks.
Your voice will show you if it feels neglected. Not taking care of it has tangible results. Difficulties to speak up, tense voice, not knowing what you want to express, restricted pitch etc.
Can you ask your voice what is it missing?
Maybe you can give it more time, acceptance, conscious breathing, rituals, exercise, stretching, laughing, yellow color or a holiday. Remember your voice is connected to everything. Even if it might feel funny, receive what your voice wants to communicate to you. There are multiple layers to the voice – it can be connected to your emotional, physical, spiritual or mental side. It can be connected to your relationships, your diet, your work or your home.
By listening to it’s needs you strengthen the connection to your voice.
With a clearer communication pathway, you are more able to express YOU with your voice, and you both have a satisfying relationship together. You can emerge as one – you are one.
