Sound is vibration. Matter is vibration. Everything is sound. Everything vibrates.
Singing and the voice are related to expressing yourself and speaking your truth. The throat is the link between the heart and the head. Therefore, you want a clear channel to allow the head and heart to come into conversation and balance with each other. The throat is connected to divine will, being in right relationship to your life’s purpose.
When you can speak, sing and sound your truth, you can move confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Singing is one of the best activities you can do for your health. By taking long exhalations, you calm down your nervous system. You also release endorphins and dopamine (happy chemicals!) and when you sing in group, you release oxytocin, which is the bonding/attachment hormone. In short, singing makes you happy!
Chanting/toning through the chakras allow you to open up your whole body through sound. This helps bring chakras into balance and alignment. You can literally feel sound opening up your body, releasing tension and knots, helping breath and energy flow through blocked areas, and giving your body an internal massage.
Group singing is such a powerful way to come together to bring healing energy to the world. Singing spirit songs–songs of love, devotion, hope, and freedom–is such a powerful vibration to put out into the world together. I have watched how free your voice classes have transformed people’s lives, and witnessed my own transformation into a more free, confident, expressive, spontaneous, playful being. It’s infectious to be in a community of people who are freeing their voices, creativity, and spirits together.
