Consider this. Your voice may be the ultimate link with who you truly are.
Through it you have the ability to communicate from essence, revealing what is new within yourself. It is your instrument that can deliver true communication, sharing an energetic presence as you speak. The energy of your words impacts the listener, creating a vibratory resonance within them. This resonance is the body’s way of discerning the truth of any communication.
Tone is an integral element of communication and is often overlooked. Your energetic state is reflected and revealed in your tone. If your words communicate a different message from your tone, the listener hears and feels a dissonance. Your communication will lack integrity.
If you are worried about how you are coming across, or if you feel a need to appear in a certain way, that, too, is communicated. When your body is relaxed and your energy is clear, the tone in your voice reflects that.
When you speak from your true essence, there is power and integrity.
There is no need to edit what you say for fear of how you will be received. You are able to surrender to the spoken word as you are speaking it, acknowledging what is available to receive.
Some time to reflect
Take a breath. Release it. Take another. Devote some dedicated time of concentration/meditation. It doesn’t need to be hours of quiet, perhaps only 15 minutes. Then allow the question to simmer within you through the weekend. Let responses bubble up into your awareness. Notice new ways of thinking, of images or ideas that arise spontaneously. Pay attention to your dreams. Let it happen. Be aware. See where it leads you next. Let yourself savor this process of receiving from yourself. Don’t judge whatever comes up, just receive it. Make notes.
You may want to share something from this process. Sharing can be an important way to anchor an insight in your body. It can lead you to deeper insight. It can stimulate action.
Feel free to use this arena to share what moves you.
