Sacred Voices and Sharing Your Gifts…“I believe the voice is the most sacred tool we have in our possession and to not use it allows us not be our full potential as an expressive form in our modern world…be the voice you want to hear.”TWA
An Art of Living…a way of seeing, a way of being, an expressive form brought here on earth, on the planet and universe. Nature always replenishes itself to speak a life of beauty and order, as should we in our daily lives, in our steps of traveling in our present journey. We are mere reflections waiting to be ourselves, an echo of creation and truth…a sacred voice…a chime, bell, drum, violin or cello…our voice celebrates the announcement and acknowledgement of celebration in words spoken and sung…words spoken from the mouth, the heart….Sweet Sounds of the Sacred Voices.
Sacred sounds are a celebration of the spirit of life, songs to the souls, the connective voice that is timeless, void of our emotional attachment carried in the reservoir of memory. Purification of sound, taking the sounds of the voice beyond the reactionary echoes and establish a purity,clarity of the vocal expression, an awakening of the true self. It is not a competition, but a joining of voices that unites us as a human choir. Everything in the universe is a unique individualization or expression of the One Thing that is Cause, the maker of all things. The thoughts and sounds we bring to the world are our gift to the world.
What is the gift that you bring to the world…what is your internal sacred song that names your voice which exists within the universal world choir and what story so you want to tell…what chorus and verse do want to sing daily…what is the phrasing of your lines and do they tell the full story of your heart and soul…
it is truly a fertilizer laid upon the holy ground of this earth…is this a story to last seven generations with its ringing full choruses…what is the reason why you share your gifts and who will receive them…and will there be love and soul kisses embedded within the fabric of your stories…will the women carry the stories in their wombs as the men walk them in their working steps…sharing your gifts while being your gift…in rituals of words and action…sacred voices and sharing the gifts of spirit and love. Shall we share the talking stick and speak the words of our sacred souls.
The words of our dialogue create the truth of our story, holds the threads of our being that create an unique pathway that leads all of us home to our own place of belonging within the slices of life, stepping stones that are but only the sentences, the paragraphs that make the page which makes the book of our truth.
Our books and dreams are as sacred as our souls, the threads that keep us within the Circle of Loving…giving love, being love and receiving love. Our art of living must be active and not just reactive. We must sing our songs without ceasing…until the song is heard. And in our song books we have chapters, verses, paragraphs, refrains and choruses…sentences of sighing and releasing.When we know our choruses and refrains, the verses become more clear and more intentional.
And in order to know our story, we must be intimate with ourselves, be willing to reveal ourselves and create an open portal of change, a sift of deeper awareness of mind, body and spirit.
So, what is your story today? Can you take the headlines from the pages our daily newspaper and make a prayer, a poem of being? Can you allow your fears to surface and greet them, sit with them in conversation. Can your story change somebody else’s life…can your story save and change yours?
