So. What the heck is Belly Singing?
First of all, did you know your true voice doesn’t come from your throat? It actually comes from your BELLY. You know what does come from your throat? Truths that want to be expressed.
Your throat is your Truth Centre. You know all those times you have had the experience of feeling like people don’t want to hear what you have to say? Or that they won’t get you? Or those times you were told by someone to shut up and be quiet? Every time that happens, a block is created or magnified in your throat. Not just energetically but physically as well.
Imagine how many unspoken truths you have trapped in your throat. No wonder people tell me that when they’re just about to get up the courage to sing, they feel a lump in their throat. It’s all of those unexpressed truths – things left unsaid – coming up to be released. And that’s really just a tiny bit of what goes on in our throat chakra.
The problem is, if you let your throat chakra get weighed down with all those unexpressed truths, and then you get into a networking or sales conversation with someone who triggers even just one of those unexpressed truths… you’re left feeling like you don’t know what to say, or like no matter what you say, it will be the wrong thing to say or come out stupid. Also, the energy behind what you say feels “off” to people when an unexpressed truth is triggered. Or you can end up expressing that truth but not in a very nice way – by yelling at someone or saying something you regret.
Now imagine if all of those unspoken truths were set free from your throat and you were suddenly able to say what you really want to say, even in a sales conversation or on stage in front of hundreds of people or in the media. Imagine the power you would have then.
So Where Does Your BELLY Fit Into All of This?
Remember, your voice doesn’t come from your throat – it comes from your belly. And what else is in your belly?
Your WOMB – your sacred sacral centre. Your creation centre. Your birthing centre. And. Your solar plexus, which is your POWER centre.
Most people are speaking out of their heads. If you connect first with your BELLY, breathe deep down into your whole belly, and then sing from that place, you open up your access to your Sacred Feminine Success Path. You allow your POWER to come up and merge with your TRUTH and your voice becomes far more powerful. Not just as in stronger, which it does, but I’m talking spiritual power.
When you sing from your belly and then you start your day or get on that sales call or go to that networking event, your message gets heard, people seem to understand you better, and you become more magnetic to your ideal client. People can FEEL the energy – the movement and merging of your power and truth – and then if they are your ideal client, whatever you say (when coming from your belly first) will be the right thing to say.
TRY IT OUT. Breathe into your belly and sing out. And then breathe into your belly and speak out one of your unexpressed truths. Say what’s on your mind – but not coming from your mind, coming from your belly.
There’s a bit more to this of course, like how to add in the heart centre to create truly powerful conversations even without words.
