Soul Music Success Story

"Becky, I want to personally thank you for bringing such a personal high vibrational energy to our Parapsychology Study Group. I feel that everyone in our group was pierced with the Love of Spirit and a true sense of inner-being Beauty.... I could never express in words how positively I was affected, but I do know how I was touched and enlightened.

- James-SilverShaman

 

 

"You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully."

- Anthony Robbins


QUICK NOTES

With the school year completely behind me now, I've been looking at what I want to Do, Be, and Have this summer. Plus, revising and facilitating my "Live Your Truth" workshop in May really started me thinking about the "Who" part: "who am I" and "who do I want to BE"?

It's always amazing to me how life gives you just what you need at exactly the time you need it.... Mid-May (during the time of all this soul-searching) I was invited to speak at the Huntsville Parapsychology Study Group about YourSoulMusic. I was both delighted and frightened at the same time! My first thought was, "What do I have to say to a room full of psychics!?"

I then quickly reminded myself that....

  • in the original Greek, "psychic" means "of or relating to the soul" and that I was reacting to the bad connotation of the word ingrained from my religious upbringing;
  • I DO believe we all have the ability to sense things above and beyond our 5 senses - hear, see, taste, touch, smell;
  • AND that I DO intuitively connect with a person when I play their Soul Music.

The whole experience was a great lesson for me and offered several growth opportunities...

  • the opportunity to uncover and work through more layers of limiting beliefs
  • the opportunity to work on my intuitive abilities - which mainly centered around paying attention to them and taking them seriously
  • a chance to debunk a fear
  • And, I think most importantly, it gave me an opportunity to be "validated" - internally and externally.

Typically, when I create someone's Soul Music, I am alone in my studio. My main "fear" in speaking to the study group was the unknown... can I intuitively connect with volunteers from the audience and play their Soul's Music?

So... I asked myself what I would have asked any coaching client, "Are there any times in your past where you have done the thing you are afraid of?".... in my case... Have I intuitively connected with something/someone while in a group before?

And of course the answer was "yes." Every time I perform - whether in a classical concert or performing my own improvisations, I "zone in" to the "soul" of the music and shut everything else out.

So, through doing the inner work and soul searching, I was able to validate my own self and my abilities.

And in the presentation that evening, I was indeed able to get into the "zone" so to speak, and let the music flow.

Plus, after playing the 3rd volunteer's music, several people in the audience commented that it sounded exactly like that person. (another "validation" :)

In the comments I've heard since, many people in the audience had their own personal experiences and insights as they listened to the music - another tribute to the fact that music has the power to move us at the Soul Level.

So what does all of this have to do with Being at a Crossroads?

Every morning when we wake up we have the opportunity to make new decisions and new choices. We are gifted the opportunity to ask:

Who am I today? Who do I want to become?

Will you be the same as you were yesterday or the day before, or the same as pick-a-day five years ago?

Have you stagnated into same-old-same old? Or are you growing, stretching, and blossoming into the vibrant, unique person you really are?

Key steps to Living the Truth of who you are include:

  • Examine your self-talk to uncover hidden limiting beliefs and fears
  • Acknowledge your gifts, talents, and strengths and appreciate them
  • Every experience is an opportunity that can propel you forward into your greatness, or that can sink you deeper into your shadow
  • YOU get to choose.

Who do you choose to be right now? Who have you decided to Become?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

- Marianne williamson, A Return to Love

P.S. Since this "Quick Notes" has turned out to be rather "Long" notes :) there will not be a Feature Article in this Issue. Be sure to check out the Soul Journey Resources for upcoming workshops and the Soul Song Strategy for Soul Music samples from the 3 volunteers!


SOUL JOURNEY RESOURCE

Shamanic Breathwork Intensive Weekend - The Shamanic Breathwork Process is a powerful healing process that enables you to remember and reconnect with your own inner healer. Old wounds and dysfunctional patterns are released and transformed, and you begin to regain lost soul parts and remember the magic of you you truly are. (If you are coming from out of town, please contact me for lodging info.)

Looking Ahead to July - I am planning to offer the Live Your Truth and the How Much Joy workshops again in July. Click on the titles for more information. (Tentative dates are July 11 - Live Your Truth and July 18 - How Much Joy. Location TBA)

Don't live close by? Both workshops work well in a teleclass or group coaching setting. If you are interested in either, please let me know.

Prefer one-on-one? The exercises, discussions, and teachings from Live Your Truth can easily integrate into your one-on-one coaching program, allowing room for more personalized, specific-to-you assignments and in-depth discussions. Send an email if you are interested in this coaching option.


SOUL SONG STRATEGY

"Our highest business is our daily life"

- John Cage

"The purpose of music is to sober and quiet the mind, thus making it susceptible to divine influences."

- Gita Sarabbai, Indian musician, influential to John Cage


Taking time to quiet the mind chatter is imperative to any kind of personal growth. And in the stress filled world we live in, it's critical to our emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Listening to meditative music has the ability to take us away from the cares of the day.... like taking a mini-vacation to refresh the soul. (slow instrumental music works best for this)

Listening to your favorite song - pop, religious, classical - can instantly transport you to the first time you heard it, and bring back old memories - (be sure to choose a song that holds pleasant memories!)

Then, of course, if you need to get energized there's nothing better than a hip-hop ditty or 70's disco to get you moving! (that doesn't necessarily prepare you for "divine influences" but you never know!)

I challenge you to take a music "time-out" everyday - even if it's just humming a few tunes on your drive home from work.

Music connects us to our Soul, making way to that place of inner joy and well-being.

Music expresses that which cannot be said
and on which it is impossible to be silent.

-Victor Hugo
