If you trust your body, you know that it will go towards health and wholeness if it is allowed to do so. If you eat well, exercise every day, get 8 hours sleep and drink 8 glasses of water every day, if you eat fresh, healthy food and maintain your optimum weight, you increase your life expectancy in a significant way. Do most of us do these things? Well…………..perhaps not.
If your body is in good shape, your voice is likely to be also. There is actual research that says this (although I can’t tell you how to find it, it’s out there). The better you are in general, the better your voice will be as well.
If your body has a health problem, how you deal with it matters. You want to look at the symptoms you may have as that – symptoms. All illnesses have symptoms but those symptoms are indicators of something else. If you deal with illness as if it were something that was happening to you, something that is passing through, that’s different from dealing with it as if you have to accept it forever and can do nothing at all about it. The first puts you in a position of empowerment, the second makes you a victim. If you become your disease, or your illness, you give away the possibility that your body could find a way to heal itself that you may not know about. In fact, no one may know about it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.
Your throat will open if you allow it to. It has to really relax, deeply and you have to help it by making an effort to allow your breath to move in and out of your throat. When it does this, it is easy to sing a beautiful sound with very little effort. Sadly, some people never experience this even after seeking it for a very long time. It’s a truly wonderful feeling and experience, one that is a “natural high” and can’t easily be explained in words. The only way you can discover this joyful sensation is by learning to trust your body and your throat. You must believe your body is wise and willing. When you live that, it will do the rest for you.
