Sing Your Heart Out
How will you sing your heart out? What do you do when the noise gets turned up?
We all have an inner voice that calls us to something great, greater than our current situation, greater than who we know ourselves to be, no matter how difficult the situation. This voice may start as a whisper, then eventually shouts, “Sing your heart out.”
What about the frustrations and upsets? How do you get there with all that noise in the way?
Many clients that I first talk with can’t hear that inner voice because something else is screaming at them-the challenges at work, the problems at home-maybe it’s being stuck in a relationship and not knowing what to do next. They create these heavy-ladened habits and when they go under the radar, weeks and months can go by-maybe years. They get comfortable with their mediocrity and therefore endure the suffering.
Haven’t we all done this at some point in our lives? The last thing we want to do is sing.
Sometimes our upsets slide in the background and we end up accepting the discomfort as a part of our life.
I find that as human beings, we get all clogged up mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. In the most constructive, responsible and safe way, we have got to allow ourselves to be expressed-all of it.
Consider allowing yourself to really open up to the noise and the upsets by acknowledging the existence of it in the first place. What do we do with those gremlins inside our heads? Maybe it gets expressed through journaling or talking to a friend. Or maybe through exercise. (Serotonin is “the happy hormone” that gets released when exercising.) It must be an action that fits and gives you power. A good outlet causes transformation.
With practice, you may find yourself slowing down and hearing that inner voice, that calling. Wayne Dyer says it best, “Don’t die with your music still in you.” And so we must first look at what is killing us. Then, and only then, will the music come out naturally.
What’s the melody that you want to bring to the world? How will you sing your heart out?
