It has been a while since I wrote a blog and I think this Easter is a perfect time to cover this topic. This is the final blog in the health series, NEWSTART.
Trust in Divine Power
This piece is about TRUST. Our spiritual health is actually MORE important than anything physical. Even if we have all our ducks in a row and are eating well, drinking water, resting, exercising, living moderately, balancing our rest and receiving adequate sunshine and fresh air, we still need to nurture our spirit. Over and above all!
Easter is a time for celebrating Christ dying on the Cross to save the world and rising again three days later. It takes faith and TRUST to believe that there is a Higher Power. Easter is one of my favourite times of the year. It is reflective and powerful and more and more I feel that way about this time of year.
Trust also blends into your emotional life, patterns, behaviors, actions and attitudes.
When you live with hope and with a belief that you can trust in a power greater than you, you will find that you live with more love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness and self control. These nine attributes are a direct result of living this way. Nine benefits that I want to harness and I am sure you do too.
How is your attitude? Is the glass half empty or half full? Do you cultivate gratitude on a daily basis? Do you whinge and complain easily?
When I find myself falling into a negative mindset I immediately arrest the thoughts to align back with how I want to think and speak and be. This can be even harder when you have “good reason” to just stay negative or even in a victim mindset. It actually takes concentrated effort to not allow such a mentality to take over. You can overcome. Keep your faith and TRUST and you can overcome anything. You are more free than you think you are.
I hope this has been a wonderful Easter for you and that you continually consider how to keep your spiritual and emotional life in check and in a joyful and positive place. It is the most important out of every step outlined here in the acronym NEWSTART.
For singing news I am so happy to officially announce that my double CD set ADVANCED VOCAL TECHNIQUE EXERCISES is now available. There is literally nothing like it out there. I found there was such a need for singers to understand harmony, scales and theory whilst learning exercises, so after much hard work and labour I have created this CD set that I extremely proud of. Each exercise has a different tempo and feel which helps you become comfortable with different styles and sounds whilst learning your scales and practicing your technique. It includes scales that are not usually sung during lessons as they are slightly more advanced and go beyond the level of warming up. Exercises like harmonic minor, melodic minor, major and minor pentatonics, chromatic scales, modes, and so much more. Even an explanation and practical examples of improvising and understanding structure of a song from a singers point of view, so that you can have greater knowledge, skill and ability to do what you want to do with your voice!
I strongly recommend this to anyone wanting to reach the next level with their voice. Your best option would be to work with FUNDAMENTAL VOCAL TECHNIQUE EXERCISES and move onto ADVANCED VOCAL TECHNIQUE EXERCISES.
Please go straight to the STORE to order your copy and you will not be disappointed. Truly great stuff. Live musicians playing too, which makes it even more special!
We have now run seven EXPERIENCE THE RECORDING STUDIO workshops and have made forty three CD singles! It is an incredible day and 100% satisfaction rate! Wow. Many have returned two or three times to the studio as they have loved it so much. Please book in here for our next one in June. All ages and levels welcome. We would love for you to come and record in a professional studio and teach you the ropes in a safe and encouraging environment. Places are limited so get in quick! Honestly, if I wasn’t running it, I would be attending myself. It is that good.
So please book in right now for recording and grab your CD sets of exercises to make sure you are moving forward and investing in yourself.
YOU HAVE A VOICE!
