Every person’s voice is specific to them, just like a fingerprint. Emotional stress has a profound effect on our lives and on our physical bodies and using the voice is the best way to determine what is happening – emotionally. It is also the fastest and surest way to calculate the release of emotions that have been traps and triggers to you for days, months or even years. The production of your voice involves nearly the entire body, psychological and physical. This makes your voice an extremely reliable indicator of physiological stress.
When an emotional pattern becomes rigid or destructive, most people recognize that they want to implement change. Some look to classes, week-end courses, expensive programs with tapes that you continue to listen to. Often change does not happen even though these programs have value. The truth is that change must come from inside the body to be lasting.
Our emotions are stored in every cell of our body. When we think of people or situations, emotions erupt within us causing us to feel pain, sorrow, guilt, happiness, joy or peace. Of course, remembering is not a bad thing unless there are unresolved emotional issues and traumas that cause you pain.
Most everyone has experienced trauma on some level. Some perceived the incident so badly, that they have buried it at a very deep cellular level. The degree in which this can affect the person is an individual experience. Some are unable to consciously feel at all, developing feelings of worthlessness. Some may experience degrees of numbness inside, stopping the person from feeling a full array of emotions and being authentic in who they are. Some may be overcome with emotions and some may harbor deep seated anger which can cause further trauma.
