SOUNDS UNDERWATER

A voice touched me so deeply today I cried.

It pulled on a cord of soul cognition instantly and unexpectedly.

It wasn’t the boy that was singing, but his voice that so uncannily resembled the voice of one already gone by.

A voice that no one has managed to come close to since she left.

I wasn’t a fan but she undoubtedly had a voice that you could recognize anywhere instantly through time and space.

In this single, brief instant today I connected to a feel of longing, of missing the ‘vibration’ that this voice transmitted.

Almost like a frequency that came and went and in doing so allowed us a glimpse of heaven in its wake.

Perhaps a longing for those memories that came with it.

But it was more about the power of a voice to awaken, to connect, to reduce us to the essence of who we are in one holy instant.

We don’t all come with big, famous, life changing voices but we all have a unique sound.

One that was released into the universe the moment of our conception.

A cry at birth that could only be us.

A scream, a shout, a laugh or a sigh that has our unique signature resonance transmitting at all time.

It is not something fixed or unchangeable. We can cultivate, refine and consciously occupy our voice.

It is a powerful tool beyond measure.

Becoming aware of how we transmit asks that we listen to the sounds that we make.

Record it, silence it, record it, amplify it, share it, get to know it.

How do others respond? Can a shift in tone, trigger a shift in a response?

The pool can be a place to safely open that bottled voice up. Above and bellow water.

The more we occupy our voices, the more of ourselves we become.

Allowing children to explore their voices through directed song, movement and play is empowering.

Try:

  • Sounding vowels above and bellow water.
  • Play with different volumes underwater.
  • Say your name underwater.
  • Sounds charades – guess what the other peson is saying.
  • Say the number your friend or parent is showing underwater with his fingers.
  • What do animals sound like underwater?

Making sounds has a ‘coming out’ feeling about it. Emotionally it is all about being heard for who we trully are.

Making sounds underwater goes beyond learning how to swim and overcoming the fear of drowning.

Learning Through Transmission is all about vibration asking to be expressed.

It’s all about the energy being transmitted. It is about learning how to use what we do naturally.

„You are the center of everything. Everything that happens around you, comes from you. Your vibration is like a wave, creating ripples and moving on. You are the vibration of Life itself.”
