The VISION that I carry for the SCHOOL OF VOICE goes beyond the entertainment industry. The vision is that we understand the importance of VOICE in all that we do. That on the path of self-realization and global enlightenment, the voice is central. It resonates through our core and beyond. It is vibrational. It is the bridge between the heart and mind. Through voice, we evolve. Many of us are not aware, that even our actions, begin as small voices in our head. Voice is a tapestry of seed sounds that materialize into the matter and extend out to link other beings and of course objects. Creating neural magnetic pathways within our society and as well as our body. You design your reality via what you listen to, identify with, what words you choose to speak, write, sing, share. Voice permeates and moves through walls where as light stops. Slow down and think of the voices that have changed something in you. An author? A friend? Your mother? A teacher? A singer? Not only that, but a voice can change the trajectory of a whole nation and the world.
Yes, one voice can lift up a nation and one voice can divide a nation. But my question is, why do we take the voice for granted. When a leader begins to divide and war is on the horizon, do we surrender and lose heart? lose our voice? resign in disbelief and bow down to the heavier frequencies or can we be empowered to understand that the tool we have been given dwells within and if used well immediately brings harmony to where harm lurks. We can balance the vibrational fields by speaking words of kindness, write more love letters, sing songs as a community, and consciously give light via vibration so that we can ease the struggles. The more War, Assualt, Pain, Disease, Division - the more we focus on high-frequency medicine.
We feel ashamed to laugh in the face of danger, to sing when injustice is done. But uplifting voices are behind the powerful movements that have made the difference. It was SONG and VOICE that created the tight-knit communities that marched for civil rights, women’s rights, gathered to voice up against gun violence. We have given too much power to the radio infiltrating our cafes, shopping malls, kitchens and cars. We need to take it back.
We can tune into our selves and our body via voice. We can raise the frequency of the room through voice. We sing our babies to sleep, share poems with the beloved, live our dreams, say clear nos, set boundaries and the ultimate for me is transformational songwriting... SINGING TRUTH. SINGING personal stories. No matter which spoke of the wheel we choose, whether songwriting or journaling, speaking, capturing our inner voice in melody lines, tuning into our own tone while meditating.
In essence the VOICE is a PATH that brings us back to US.
It is a path that unites and connects - our inner worlds with our outer worlds, the spirit worlds with the earthbound life and yes, it can shed light and unite our world in PEACE as well as destroy, distract, and be used to manipulate. Voice is like fire. One needs to use it wisely. If you do, it can warm the hearts of many. If not, it can ignite a war, destroy families, injure children’s confidence forever, sound can even kill. It is that powerful.
There is not a day that goes by that I do not find a poem, a speech, a song, a play, a film, a piece of science shared via voice, that does not inspire me to believe in evolution and the allow the curiosity of how vibration and frequency work to consume me - vibration is key to living in peace.
“ May I stress the need for courageous, intelligent, and dedicated leadership... Leaders of sound integrity. Leaders not in love with publicity, but in love with justice. Leaders not in love with money, but in love with humanity. Leaders who can subject their particular egos to the greatness of the cause. “
Many Voices Have Risen. May we have the courage to not only have it be ONE person leading but for all of us to join together and lead with our hearts and minds joined and RISE. OUR MANY VOICES can shift Harm to Harmony.
Today, in the light of the war in Syria I was reading and reflecting and came across Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech. Here is a short excerpt. Today we celebrate the VOICE of Martin Luther King.
May you have the courage to persevere and stay true to your inner voice and clearest vision of how we may create a healthy and vibrant world. Stay Gold!
