Stand up For Yourself. Speak up For Yourself.
I am so excited to be immersing myself in a sixteen week training with Chloe Goodchild called "Liberate the Voice of Your Soul." "And the word was made flesh" truly comes alive as we sound from a place of stillness deep into the core of our bones.
Here is a little practice that changed my life!
Imagine you are like a tree with roots sinking deep into the core of the earth.
Feel your feet planted on the ground.
Bring your awareness to the bones in your calves, knees, thighs, pelvis, spine, ribs, sternum, neck and skull.
Sound on one note.
Be still and know that I am here. (Pause and listen)
Be still and know that I am. (Pause and listen)
Be still and know. (Pause and listen)
Be still. (Pause and listen)
Be. (Pause and listen)
Later that day, I was speaking with a lady who usually intimidates me with her skilful and forceful rhetoric and critical eye. I would usually shrink away into being invisible.
However, I was able to stand up for myself and speak up for myself. The result was quite amazing! She really softened and admitted that she felt anxious around me because I was in my heart!
Feel free to try this for yourself. I would love to hear your experiences!
