Navigating the Noise – How Sound, Tone & Frequency Affect Your Communication Style

 

Most likely you have all heard someone give a speech before. You may have either attended some kind of formal ceremony like graduation and heard the Valedictorian deliver a melancholy speech of memories past as well as new adventures to come. Or perhaps you’ve attended a wedding and got to hear a best man’s heartfelt, yet hilarious speech dedicated to the newlywed couple filled with a twist of embarrassing moments from the groom’s past topped off with some good old brotherly love. It doesn’t even have to be something you were physically present for. We’ve all seen someone speak on television, whether it be our local weatherman or the President of the United States.

Whatever the case might be, you understand that while listening and watching these various people speak, you felt differently amongst them. Some people may have been able to successfully draw up a feeling of motivation for some kind of cause perhaps. Maybe another got you angry for reporting that a foreign nation had done something cruel to its people. It’s good to take notice that it’s not always just the speaker, but also the information being spoken that carries an energy, a frequency and each has the potential to trigger you in different ways.

Some people are fully engaged when they speak and others, well, not so much. And it’s not so much just the person’s personality, but also a number of other factors that can help to determine not only what is communicated to, but also understood by the prospective audience. Some of these factors include their own current emotions and feelings, the overall environment (including the emotions and feelings of others – exponentially more so if you are an HSP, Empath, etc., just to mention.)

So, why is this? Why can some people deliver a speech and have the entire room hooked on their every word? And how can others be so dull and boring upon delivery that people can literally fall asleep to their continued speaking voice? Confidence, authenticity, and of course the choice of words! (will appear in and affect vibration, tone, etc.)

Another side we need to look at here is human perceptions. Not just from the speaker, but also the audience. And while each is playing a vital role in the delivery of information to and from one another, what is really important here is the energy. Why? Because that’s where the “feeling” and emotion come fully into play and where we can begin to take an active role in how well we communicate exactly what we are intending so that people are receiving from us exactly the same. Remember our emotions or “e-motions” are nothing more than energy-in-motion.

We learn from merely observing nature that everything moves and that movement or “flow” is, in essence, the natural order of things. If something comes to rest, it tends to stay at rest, otherwise, we, like the mighty pendulum must flow with our own inner spiritual swing, or else we risk making life a constant struggle, tragedy, and one huge lesson that we volunteered to suffer endlessly for and yet learn nothing from.

So, basically, that generic, cushy phrase we’ve all heard telling us to “go with the flow” has it right. But it’s only half right and missing a vital part of the equation that will help ensure success in our dualistic reality. And the missing half includes the part where you still need to row from time to time. Yes, you must let the main current of the Universe guide you for whenever you struggle against it, it will let you know via struggle and pain. But if you only flow and never row, you tend to keep your head underwater and so much noise of life gets garbled. Keep a confident grip on your oars, with full trust that the Universe will guide you to know when you must row. And when you trust this knowing and always row, and row with all you got, your boat will never sink, and will always, always, always play the most kick-ass music that will forever make your spirit sing! For when you live guided in trust and in grace, you have tuned into your Soul signature tone and are broadcasting it out to the world clearly.

Your frequency is high and attractive because it is putting out vibrations required to be in such a state which are love, trust, and humility mixed with fierce willingness to go for what you want and make sure you have what you need. This alone will not only change your life but will help to encourage others to want to change the channel of their own garbled broadcasts that perhaps have been causing them the pain in their own lives or preventing them from being heard the way they have been hoping.

This is sound. This is the sister of light and a vital tool of creation we are endowed with and never really taught much about other than it might be cool to play the piano or sing well enough to get rich and famous. We are not taught that the most important focus needs to be placed on our speaking voice. Not only in how we speak to the world, but how we speak to ourselves for this is what begins the roots of the foundation that houses our self-esteem, and beliefs about the world around us. Sound can truly be one of the destructive or one of the most healing elements in life; in YOUR life. What kind of world do you want to see? Speak it until you see it. 🙂

A Surprising Way to Let Go of Painful Feelings and the Past

By Maria Stenvinkel | Tiny Buddha

“We do not heal the past by dwelling there; we heal the past by living fully in the present.” ~Marianne Williamson

I’ve struggled with it.

Letting go, I mean. I’ve struggled with moving on from my past. I’ve struggled with ridding myself of guilt, shame, and grief. I’ve struggled with freeing myself from mistakes, past relationships, and worries about the future.

It’s not that I haven’t tried. Believe me, I’ve tried really hard. I’ve written goodbye letters, mentally cut the energetic cords, and fiercely gone back into the pain to free myself fully from it. I’ve cried my eyes out, talked about it, and brought it to my meditation pillow.

What I’ve tried has helped to some extent, but not completely. So, instead of moving on I’ve felt stuck between my past and my future. You know, like in limbo. And that’s not the place to set up camp; both you and I know that.

It’s frustrating because I’m fully aware of the importance of letting go and moving on. I know that attachment is the reason we suffer. I know that past pain, anger, and resentment holds us back. I know that holding on to the unwanted blocks the wanted from coming in.

Letting go is essential. But, it’s not always easy to apply theory to practice. If you’ve also struggled with it, here’s another approach that has helped me to truly let go and move on.

Why Letting Go is Hard

First of all, everything is energy. Our thoughts and feelings emit a vibration, and what we send out to the world is what we receive back. This isn’t some woo-woo thing—it’s quantum physics (source).

That means that whatever we give our attention to—wanted or unwanted—grows. If you focus on happiness, joy, and satisfaction, you’ll experience more of that. If you focus on pain, regret, and guilt, you’ll experience more of that.

Just think about it, have you ever tried to rid yourself of stress, only to have found yourself getting more stressed, especially when you knew you shouldn’t stress? Or have you told yourself to stop worrying, only to have found more things to worry about?

Mother Theresa knew about this. She said, “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

An anti-war demonstration focuses on war, which triggers feelings such as frustration, anger, and hopelessness. A pro-peace rally, on the other hand, focuses on peace.

The same goes for letting go. Unless you’re able to truly let it go—meaning that you withdraw your attention completely from it—you’re more likely to focus on the unwanted and thus draw more of that into your life.

Step 1: Say “yes” to what is.

You cannot reject or push against the unwanted. You cannot focus on a problem and find the solution. Because the solution is never where the problem is. So, you need to shift focus.

You shift focus by first accepting what is. If you want to let go of shame, start by first accepting that you’re feeling shameful. Don’t argue with your thoughts and feelings. Don’t resist them. Don’t try to push them away. Instead, give them permission to exist.

As Eckhart Tolle said, “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.” To reach complete acceptance, spiritual teacher Bentinho Massaro suggests a technique where you agree with your limiting and hurtful thoughts.

For example, to accept guilt over something that happened, tell yourself, “Yes, I’m guilty.” If you struggle with forgiveness, tell yourself, “Yes, that’s right, I can’t forgive this person.”

This doesn’t mean that what you’re saying is true. Instead, it’s a tool to control negative thoughts and emotions so they don’t control you. By agreeing with them, the battle between you and them ends. When there’s nothing more to argue about, they lose their power over you. Touché.
