Alright you guys, here it is, the song I told you about in THIS blogpost..the one for the contest ~ the winner will be announced in april 2012.. It's unlisted on youtube, that is, only a sneak-a-peak, especially for YOU :))) Enjoy, Muah!!!!
Since somewhere around March-April 2010 I've been enjoying my voice more and more. As a teen (aroudn 13 yrs of age) I was told by a music teacher I couldn't sing, so I believed it and never sang again, at least not when someone else was around or could hear me. I still sang at concerts when I thought noone would hear me anyways. But I never sang even in a choir even if my heart was longing for it, I actually applied once, but declined when I remembered I actually "couldn't sing". As a child I wanted to be a singer and sang along to all my favourite artists, even recorded myself sometimes...and kinda enjoyed what I heard as I listened to it...and I really enjoyed the music lessons!!! I didn't have the confidence to sing solo, but I really loved to do the "choir" things and did some performances (playback) with some friends on the "big stage". I really enjoyed it until high school, cuz that was when we got a new teacher, and got to do an exame. The exame was divided into three parts, with given grades to each part, that then would be part of the final grade in the mandatory subject of music.. We were all around 12-13 yrs of age... one part was "Theory" (music history, hearing for example "baroque" and recognize it).. the other two were "practical" ~ one of which was to play two different combinations on a drum set. We had to practice at home using our hands tapping on our legs or in the air.. (for the high hat), if not having a whole drum set at home (maybe one of us were lucky enough to have that lol). The other part of the practical exame was to sing along to a predeterminate song, in a predeterminate key that our teacher played on the piano. The song, now looking back, is actually a pretty hard piece with lotsa high notes. And actually we didn't get any guidance more than that we were supposed to sing it by heart. The melody was a known song, so seemed no problem in that regard. And I remember that when I sang it at home to practice it - it actually went pretty alright despite the "high-key parts". But at the test - not only cuz I was nervous to get "evaluated" and be singing "solo" in front of the evaluator,lol but becasue HE PLAYED ALONG in the same key that he always did - that is, I was not able to CHOOSE the "key" I was confortable with (which I had automatically done when practicing at home). Little did I know then (!), I just noticed that I couldn't sing-a-long well at all. And I didn't pass that part of the exame, he told me I couldn't sing, and that was it. No such thing as "there are singing lessons to make it to comfortably sing that high"..or whatever.. Nope.. This made me so ashamed of my voice that I actually never took the step to follow through with taking singing lessons, I actually thought I was "born that way" LOL. But it all shifted for me in 2010. I was at a chanting retreat, and I had been chanting (singing mantras) pretty regularly for a couple of years. I dared to sing it becasue it was a yogic practice, so there was a meditative purpose rather than a "performance"... So ~ although I still really thought I couldn't sing ~ I sang and loved it. "Sing a little Song Project" contest ~ songs for a yogic kids album :))) I've now posted a sneak-a-peak of what I sent in, click HERE to watch it :))) Ps.2: The picutre was found through google images searching "Singing"
More Goodies to Share...So ~ If you read my last blogpost , you already know that our emotions represent communication or even guidance from our "broader self", the part of us that has The Whole Picture..the Broader Picture and KNOWS what we personally prefer at all times.... And as I wrote to a dear friend recently.. An "uncomfy" emotion is actually kinda like a really good friend or a life partner (your broader part is a really great life partner btw lol) that is holding out their hand, and with the Unconditional Love that it IS, calling you towards it ~ and This broader part of the physical you IS actually right now experiencing what YOU just created (that is, you have just experienced something NOT preferred and a preferred version has been created instantly)...and of course wants to SHARE this wonderful experience with you, experience it together.. So the "uncomfiness" is actually the kinda separation from the broader-you that you acknowledge... "Come and Enjoy this Wonder with me", is calls you .. as you're still having your focus on what actually MADE you prefer something different.. LOL...And I've found that, more and more, since I have gotten the hang of this knowlege.. I'm more an more prone.. on all subjects.. to come along and hang out with my Life Partner ..and checking out, and let myself experience all the new creation has just happened, and that is MY OWN preferred version.. So, uncomfy emotion is nothing to fear or beware of..On the contrary, its something to really appreciate.. and FOLLOW :))) I LOVE following these indicators of Unconditional Love, lovingly and infinitly patiently... calling me towards what I personally prefer... The Geniousest :))))
As you might already know, I started an experiment with myself some time ago. The Theme was kinda "is it possible to feel good under any and all conditions".. This process has turned alot around for me pretty quick and I have become quite a master at deciding how I want to feel and create my reality the way I want it. It has been quite a delicious experience and very eye-opening, and it continues to get BETTER even tho it always seems that it kinda "cant get any better"... LOL... so I though I'd share some of this GOOD STUFF with you guys :))) My favourite part of this experiment could have been "the creating of a great life for myself" and YES that is part of it.. but actually my favourite part has been to understand the Benefit of different kinds of emotions and what they actually INDICATE. So, as I live my life I bump up to things I prefer and things I dont prefer.. thats how it is for all of us... and when we bump up to the not-preferred, we WANT it differently, right?? :))) Atleast I definatley do..lol :))) So.. well, and that experience usually is accompanied by a so called "negative emotion".. and actually I thought before that THAT emotion was only a response to what I was currently observing.. but I've now understood how it works.. which is quite amazing!!! So, well, we are actually Spiritual Beings and our emotions is the communication from the Broader Perspective, the "All-knowing" and the Unconditional Love part of us, that is at our core. And it's so geniously made that everytime an individual part of the All knowing, to make it simple, lets say its ME (or You).. so when I encounter something I do NOT prefer, the "broader perspective" of ME actually BECOMES my "wish" .. I know this is a little brain-twisting lol...at least it was for me in the beginning..lol.. but when you start experimenting with it you will have your OWN personal experience with it, so you will OWN it.. and KNOW it just as clearly as I do now. It's very thrilling to know and live this, I must say.. It's life experience, personal experience that makes you KNOW, and when I started this experiment I didn't know this, I was just going to have "a try at it" LOL :))) And it just threw me into the most amazing life experience.. HERE is a great way of seeing it...a favourite.. :))) Ps. Nothing wrong with getting off track from time to time, altho it really is delicious to recognize the guidance and follow it.. towards the All Dreams Come True.. It's FAB :))) Ps2: The picture was found through Google Images searching "U-turn".
