        A Journey for Answers

        by Lesley Almer

                                             

    My skin still felt the vibrations bouncing off the walls.  Always at this time, I assimilated and felt the most energy…in silence.  The room was dim. I could see the outline of participants as my tingshas lured them back into their bodies.  By the look on their faces I knew many had a lot to say about their sonic journey.

    “What did it mean?” One individual asked after their elaborate description of colors and immersion of water.  Some of my suggestions were received; but I knew they weren’t completely satisfied.  Little did they know, they already had the answer.  Many of us do.  Instead, we seek clarity and confirmation from other sources, diminishing our own intuitive capabilities.

    It was time for me to create a new event, something I hadn’t facilitated before.  I wasn’t sure what this concept even looked like.  Whenever I find myself in doubt of a direction splattered with question marks, I dust off my shamanic tools and journey inward.  The guidance was encouraging me to continue a ritual of journeys each day for thirty days.  I plunged into the lower and upper realms for clarity and brought back energies, images and wisdom recommended by my guides.  At the end of this time span, what manifested was a guided shamanic journey for connecting with one’s shaman teacher.

    In the summer of 2016, I facilitated this new event and the guided shamanic journey was well-received.  It confirmed the nudges during previous rehearsals to make it widely accessible for anyone interested in exploring their higher consciousness.  Darn nudges, thank you.

    When fellow sound healer, Lynda Arnold, asked what I had in mind as regards recording this album, I responded, “A guided adventure.”  I called upon her expertise in music production to help breathe life into the project.  I wanted to incorporate all the senses and make it more of an experience rather than a flat recorded meditation.

    Like two inner-children at play, Lynda and I beat drums and included other instruments to animate the layers in the journey.  Every listener was to transport into the lower realm easily, regardless of their experience.  The crystal bowls were to have their voices heard, as well as my integrated vocals.  Once I have the listener in a higher frequency state, I infuse earthly guttural chants of the directional deities to incorporate all aspects of space and protection.

    Even now, I discover new symbolism in this guided journey.  Every animal, sound, and image had its purpose.  I researched the meanings behind the animals and revealed mysticism and initiation.  I love synchronicity; and find it happens quite often with this work. 

    This guided journey may not be for everyone.  However, for those who are ready for it, I wish them an experience beyond their imaginations and hope this new tool will unite them not, only with their inner wisdom, but with a deep sense of empowerment.

  • Do you use the power of sound to enhance your speaking voice?

    You can use it to manage nerves, release challenging thoughts and bring yourself into the full power of your presence.


    The first time I experienced Sound Healing I was in a voice class at drama school, repeating sounds, feeling the vibration through our bodies. I wanted to stop. I was feeling all sorts of things I didn’t want to feel.  Our teacher said it meant my voice was opening areas it hadn’t accessed for a long time; and I burst into a flood of tears.

    Eight years later, I discovered sound-healer Stewart Pearce (who taught my drama-school voice teacher!).  After taking Stewart’s course I began incorporating sound in my massage work. I went to Egypt on a spiritual holiday and was invited to lead my first group sound circles. 

    Then one day, a massage client asked if I knew anyone who could help her husband gain confidence in public speaking.  I did. Me! 

    This started what I do today, sound healer and vocal confidence and communication specialist.  I reconnect people to who they really are, and release the restrictions they hold around speaking and self-expression to find their confident voice.

    Why? When I was about 9 years old, a music teacher said to open our mouths when we sing.  I did, and three girls started making fun of me.  Suddenly the thing I loved was ‘dangerous’ and might ostracise me.  This stuck with me.  It got so bad when auditioning for musicals huge nerves would kick in, my body shake, and my voice would go. 

    These are the same kinds of challenges people face when they don’t like speaking in front of others or are afraid to have a challenging conversation.  You shut down, or shut off the parts of your voice that connect with the experiences your brain remembers as vulnerable - and your body responds.

    Your voice affects every part of your life.  Whether you are expressing yourself personally or professionally you need to let go of the barriers and blocks a younger you created mentally, physically and emotionally around self-expression.

    Next time you are nervous about speaking, I invite you to hum and ‘Haw’.  Let your voice vibration ground you, bring you back into your body and release those emotional charges too. It is the simplest way to change your state because it works in a moment. It is physical, emotional and spiritual.  It is accessible immediately and you need no special tools to create it. 

    This is how I connect my clients to their deepest truth, to the passion behind their purpose to speak with clarity, confidence and conviction.  Every one of them a pebble into the ocean of creating global vocal-liberation and sending “Sound Around The World.”


    I ask them … words make waves – so why not speak with the power of Your Whole Voice?!
