Super Sonic Summer Solstice Mantra Gift



Super Sonic Summer Solstice


As we celebrate the longest, brightest days, take a moment to connect with your biggest, boldest vision for your life - what would it look like for you to be operating at your brightest? How would it be for you to be totally expressed in the world?  What would it take? What would you need to give up and/or amplify?


 


This month we look at Tips for Busting Fears about Singing and Speaking and work with our Mantra of the Month, the Gayatri Mantra - to expand our luminescence in the world and experience a truly Super Sonic Summer Solstice.

5 Steps to Busting Fears About Singing and Speaking


1. Make it About Them


Turning the spotlight off ourselves and onto our audience helps us remember that singing is actually a service, a communication and a transmission of energy.  It takes the self-consciousness away when we get clear about what it is we want to give.  We let go of being concerned about what sort of reception we will get and focus on gifting our audience with our committed, loving presence.


 


2. Tune Your Instrument


Just like any other instrument there are immediate physical actions you can take to make yourself fit to sing - breathing deeply being the first and foremost - which when done with intention will dissolve the biggest waves of fear.  Taking our attention to the breath allows us to Tune In to Deeper Listening FM - to the part of us that is Attuned to stillness and observation.  The witness within can watch the fearful part of us throwing a hissy fit with compassion and say ‘there now, it’s all ok’ -  all whilst taking one simple long deep breath.


 


3. De-clutter your Psyche


This means getting on the marigolds and cleaning out all your psychic cupboards and having a dance with all the old skeletons.  When we listen to the stories that are still humming within the very bones of us - ancestral, personal, collective tales - we can befriend them and start singing a new song.  Part of my journey involved making peace with the cripplingly shy part of me that I inherited from generations of very quiet people on one side of my family.  As I befriended and came to love the strength of silence, she began singing to me.


 


4. Transfer your strengths


Recall a time when you overcame a challenge nobly - the last time you helped a friend in trouble, saved a cat up a tree, climbed a mountain, ran a marathon, washed the dishes in record time.  Just thinking about it will make you feel strong and that that same energy, passion, determination and courage can be immediately recalled and applied in the moment of singing.  One lesson, at a time in my life where I was really enjoying giving Reiki treatments, my singing teacher said to me ‘sing as if you are giving Reiki.’  It completely transformed my singing because I could immediately align myself with powerful, calming energy and my positive experiences of Reiki and transfer it to my singing.


 


5. Sing everyday


Voice Gym is more fun than treadmills - you get to enjoy yourself and burn off calories singing your favourite songs. Choose a favourite song, mantra, chant, nursery rhyme, jingle and commit to singing it everyday, every which way and where you want to.
