Soulful Children – I Want to hear My Own Voice !

Luca’s friend came round the other day and I talked to him and Luca about their throat and voice. Both the boys said that sometimes they didn’t want to hear what people were saying or things around them  because it seemed to interfere with what was in their own heads.

There is so much noise in today’s world that maybe children are not able to hear themselves any more – their own feelings, tastes, thoughts and opinions. Some are happy to  take on other’s thoughts and opinions and have become followers of other people – like celebrities. But others are rebelling and saying “Please be quiet. I want to hear what’s in my own head.”

I asked the boys to paint their throat or their voice and I did a painting too. And an amazing thing happened. We all started off painting our own voice but as the panting developed other people’s voices crept into our pictures. It was as if we all had this revelation that to be a lone voice is lonely and ineffective but to join voices – well, that is power!

Why not have a go and paint your voice. You may be surprised about what is inside you waiting to be expressed into the world!

Hi. Welcome to my blog. I am a visionary and my vision is to see more people healthy, happy and fulfilled. My Insights: Relationship is bigger than the interaction. Creativity is bigger than the project. Journey is bigger than the plans of the day. Vulnerability is the new self-sufficiency. Feeling good enough is the new enlightenment. Attachment is the new detachment. Sensitivity is being alive - Soulfulness is our deep heart-felt response to being alive. Separation is the biggest cause of dis-ease. Healing is transformation. The Christian message is an invitation to a warm embrace with God.
