Time to Use Your Voice

Time to Use Your Voice

Science tells us that he left side of the brain is responsible for controlling the right side of the body. It also performs tasks that have to do with logic, such as in science and mathematics. On the other hand, the right hemisphere coordinates the left side of the body and performs tasks that have do with creativity and the arts.  But for more individual personality traits, such as creativity or a tendency toward the rational rather than the intuitive, there has been little or no evidence supporting a residence in one area of the brain. 

As babies we connect our needs through crying. These needs have nothing to do with our thoughts, they are driven by a primitive need to survive. The sound is insistent, overwhelming, and produced by a tiny body with tiny vocal olds. As we grow up life concentrates us on facts and the situations we create for ourselves. We adapt and use our language in creative ways and for most of us, it is our full voice that gets left behind.

We can use language and voice together to create a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world we live in.  This is difficult, as the more you let go of the facts and let in the feelings you have, the more likely it is that your voice retreats or your emotions overcome you and you cry or laugh so much that you can’t speak.  You can learn how to stay away from things that bother you by not allowing them into your consciousness or by not giving them their full value.  But this dulls or restricts the voice by constricting muscles that would normally be free. 
Voice and speech exercises are valuable for freeing up the voice.   If you learn to open up your breath to feed and sustain your voice, you will find that your ability to speak and express yourself grows.  It gives you a deeper understanding of yourself when you connect your body with your thoughts.

When you hear someone speaking, who is also linked into a deeper understanding of being and of their belonging in the whole of here and now, you listen.  These are people that we know to be passionate about what they’re saying.  They have opened up their voices.  You, have that right to be passionate about your needs and wants, whether these are to do with your job or your personal life.   With voice work you can explore your voice and find that the ability to express yourself will grow.
