Day 14: The Blue Ritual
Restoring Ritual: The Rock Your Voice Blue Ritual
Main Points for Today:
In addition to my online wellness, yoga and fitness teaching, I’m also a rock n roll singer.
It took me many years to gather the courage to speak my truth through teaching, and then many more to do the same with my other expression: singing.
In fact, I almost didn’t do it at all. Karaoke was fine, but part of me would have rather stayed silent than endure the discomfort of vulnerability that came from stepping onstage with a real band!
When I got the chance to write and record my own original music, and start my own group, “Sadie & The Tribe”, at first, I freaked out.
Then I got to work. And I did it. And I rocked it. And I still do.
I want you to feel the unbelievable empowerment of letting your truth move up and out through your voice too—whether that’s actual singing, or expressing yourself to others in a confident and boundaries way that protects and increases your personal freedom and success.
And hey—karaoke is a great way to open your throat Chakra, too, for future reference!
The fifth, or Throat Chakra, rules your ability to share your true voice—and when blocked, you will be likely to shut your own needs down in favor of keeping other people more comfortable.
This doesn’t do you, or them, any favors. When you can respectfully but firmly state your reality out loud, you will feel so much more aligned and confident—and others will get what they needed, which is the gift of knowing your truth, so they can more easily determine theirs in relationship to it!
This may mean you have to endure a momentary discomfort if someone doesn’t like or get your truths, or want to be around them, but I can tell you from experience that it’s FAR better to be who you are than live a half-life being kind of yourself, which can cause a lifetime of horrible feelings, goals and projects undone, and your story forever locked inside of you.
You’ve come this far. Let’s go all the way into your fullest self-expression today!
I’ll help you to deepen this ritual’s effectiveness with a Rockstar Breath (all the breath techniques you’ve learned thus far all joined together) to power the mantra Ham that will train you to be most authentically YOU, in any situation.
We will add in the sound Lam, for the root, to bring some grounding earth energy into your expression. Balancing too much expression with the containment of Lam will help you speak your mind—while maintaining your healthy boundaries!
Go find some blue stones or items and meet me back on the mat!
Thank you for rocking your voice with me today,
