There are days when I feel pressured for no apparent reason, at least not a reason I can see. Nothing much is going on. Does this ever happen to you? No earth-shattering appointments, no pressing deadlines, just the usual to-do list with many options. But my mind is over active, and I feel like a big dose of relief is in order. What’s a girl to do?
I sing. I find a place to make sound all by myself. This is speed therapy — I don’t even have to tell anyone a story. No need to explain a thing, words are not necessary. Just make sound, beautiful sound.
If you can find a place to sing that’s acoustically friendly, all the better — an empty stairwell, a church, underground parking when no one is around, or a room in your own home with no carpet and smooth cement walls and ceiling — wait, that’s probably not in your home, but you get the idea! Preferably, go where no one can hear you (or find you). You can put all your attention on making sound and vibrating your way to a better feeling. This is good.
And then sing — loud or soft or whatever feels right. Either one is healing if it resonates with your state of being. And this is important — you don’t need a song, just make sound. Looong slooooooow sound.
Don’t worry about changing notes all that often, it doesn’t matter. Feel the sound go all the way through you, from your head to your toes and everywhere in between. Feel your tension leaving. Yes, you’re raising your vibration and you feel better. Time is disappearing, too. Life is slowing down. You’re relaxing. Everything is getting more OK by the minute. Your brain is defragging. More room for new creativity, those wonderful bursts of brilliance and whatever else rings your chimes.
Try it an let me know what vibrated in you! Do we have liftoff? Are we jumping for joy?
