Shadow Self-Love Journey
Day 5: Shadow Voice
Directions: Sing or howl or scream or shout or moan or wail or whine or hum or growl or roar! Whichever feels right today! How do you silence yourself? Why and when? How is your voice kept in shadows?
WARNING ⚠️ if you scream, be careful of your Throat because you can hurt it, so just don't scream like bloody murder because I dont want you hurting I want you healing.
We often silence ourselves, whether being afraid of our own anger and frustration or being afraid of using our beautiful voices or afraid our voices or words aren't “good enough” to be heard.
I was always told “you're so quiet” because I really was as a kid. So I think I stayed quiet a lot longer than I should have. We tend to do that. Women especially but men too. I don't hear men sing enough. I don't hear women sing enough.
I used to think I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket with a lid on it. (Who gets this reference?)
I remember being 10 and singing My Heart Will Go On in front of my Canadian relatives and they thought it was super cute. But puberty hit and I closed up like a clamshell. I dont know why I developed such doubt in my voice. I dont know why I told myself not to bother taking singing lessons because I thought my voice would never be as good as the Vocal Majors at my arts school.
True, I took speech and debate for 5 years and I talked in front of big groups of people and judges and it was always fine because my heart was never in it. My heart shows when I sing and now I see how beautiful it is just to let your heart be heard no matter if you're trained or not.
A big step was that my grandfather loved to sing and towards the end of his life we'd sing together sometimes.
And when he passed and I was next to him and watched him leave I swear I felt his voice inside me. And I sang to him as we washed his body before sending him off.
I cant imagine if I'd been too afraid to sing and hadn't gotten to sing to him one last time.
I know he always hears my voice and I know he's so proud.
♡ Non poteva non essere mia. 😍❄🗡 "Cala la notte, e la mia guardia ha inizio. Non si concluderà fino alla mia morte. Io non avrò moglie, non possiederò terra, non sarò padre di figli. Non porterò corona e non vorrò gloria. Io vivrò e morirò al mio posto. Io sono la spada nelle tenebre. Io sono la sentinella che veglia sul muro. Sono il fuoco che arde contro il freddo, la luce che porta l'alba, il corno che risveglia i dormienti, lo scudo che protegge i regni degli uomini. Consacro la mia vita e il mio onore ai Guardiani della notte, per questa notte e per tutte le notti a venire". @shopgocase #gocase#MATHASNOW#gameofthrones#got#jonsnow#nightswatch ♡
