Many of us have had the experience of being unable to speak, frozen, or perhaps flying off the handle only to later blame ourselves for not communicating more effectively. This blog explores how our nervous system affects our voice and how we might regulate this system so that we can speak, listen, and express ourselves with clarity and resilience.
Singing, especially devotional singing is an excellent way to regulate our system. Not only does it create deeper breathing and extended exhales it also provides an arena where we can express and process our emotions and even release trauma.
Todays songs ‘Amazing Grace’ & ‘Hey Ya’ are both songs that I have sang hundreds of times, in a release of emotion and offering.
As always I deeply appreciate your shares, comments, and messages. Please let me know how these practices or songs impact you.
Thank you so much for allowing me this space to share.
