"FREEING THE VOICE SOUNDING THE SOUL"
Aspect of SOUND HEALING
by Saruah Benson
no place to hide in the sound of our voice. It carries the vibration
of the truth of the moment, of the life. Our fear, anger, guilt
and shame - our love and joy are reflected in the sound of our
voice. As we learn to release the fear, anger, guilt and shame
through releasing the voice, blockages, both physical and emotional,
are released and the energy begins to flow with greater ease.
In the release of our emotions, we have more space to experience
love, joy, and soul integration which can also be sounded by the
voice. Songs of anger, songs of love, walk hand in hand as we
explore mysterious regions in the forest of the self.
lullaby to the child within brings comfort and healing. It's as
simple as hugging yourself and humming-perhaps beginning with
two sounds going back and forth, and then letting the song emerge.
It's wonderful to do this anytime, but especially before sleeping.
If you're very brave, sing a lullaby to your friend or partner.
As we experience
the retelling of our story, we open to another level of expression
when we let our story become our song. Or after a particularly
strong cathartic release, to then translate the emotion into sound
and allow the energy of the emotion to ride the current of music
our identity with the archetypes of artist, healer, priest-priestess-shaman
and educator, we extend that identity into the song of each character
living within. Being led through vision/meditation and movement,
discovering what is becoming alive in us in the moment and giving
our truth entrance through words, poetry and song, is a wondrous
process of mystery, creation and intimacy.
When we are
in nature, or in sacred space, allowing the energy of the place,
the rock, the flower, the ocean, the mountain, the ancestors,
to have expression through our song is another facet of Source
Energetics and the crystalline voice. Stand or sit in the space,
declare your intention to be an instrument for the highest good,
breathe the light and the energy of the place or object, feel
the merging, the "becoming one with," and let the song
be born from the breath, the beauty or the pain from the coming
together of your being with the spirit of nature, the spirit of
with our soul and the Beloved, the sacred marriage, the eternal
light living within, and expressing that union, wholeness and
deep peace through silence or sound is a powerful and empowering
experience. Resonating with the light of the soul sounding through
the body voice can be ecstatic. Singing to another, becoming one
with their essence and allowing that energy to sound and express
the beauty of the being, is a profound and healing experience.
is an extension of the breath and the breath is the extension
of light. If we speak and/or sing with the awareness and intention
that we are carrying Divine Light Love Sound Vibration through
our body voice, transformation may happen for ourselves and others.
The human being is an amazing instrument for the music and dance
of prana, chi, spirit, lifeforce, light and love. This energy
is as close as our breath, our voice, our true story/song, the
sound of the sacred and the song of our soul.
