I wrote this 3 years ago for the book 365 Ways to Connect with Your Soul
book. So much is coming up over the last 2 weeks around TUNING UP TO TUNE IN that it feels like a good time to share again.
“You know how your favourite piece of music or a song can conjure up a sense of peace or joy, sometimes in just a few notes? Well, you can tune into your own Soul’s frequency in a very similar way without a radio, iPod or CD player!
I used to sing and hum a lot as a child. My bursts of vocal joy weren’t always appreciated, however. I was scolded by a teacher for belting out Zip A Dee Doo Dah on the way to class and mortified when my consulting manager asked me to stop singing in the breakroom as it disturbed my colleagues. I understood their perspectives, but that didn’t make it hurt any less. Gradually, I learned to suppress this impulse.
Years later, after a healing crisis sparked my personal healing journey, I was blessed to live in the countryside where I loved to walk in the woods every day to meditate. As I tuned into the rhythm of Nature, I began to feel the urge to hum. One day I simply couldn’t resist any longer and my intentions burst forth in a song. I felt so free, with no need to monitor the volume or wonder what someone might think or say.
I began to sing my intentions every day, often surprised when the words would rhyme in the most beautifully fluid ways. My inner melody bubbled up more often and now I honour instead of repress it.
You are pulsing with energy. When you hum or sing, you act as a tuning fork and channel a frequency through your cells so they can dance to your soul’s rhythm.
Don’t worry about how you sound as that takes you away from your feelings which are the language of your soul!
Instead, focus on your intention, prayer or the next notes in your heart. Let the words or sounds move up from your chest, through your throat and into the air around you. Breathe them in, then breathe them out into your world.
Enjoy tuning into your soul so harmony can flow!”
