Why Not Discover Your ‘Real’ Voice for the New Year?

Posted on Posted in Sound More Mature
  • Imagine a voice that can captivate your listeners…
  • Imagine a voice that sounds more mature…
  • Imagine a voice that can be projected without hurting your throat…
  • Imagine a voice that doesn’t embarrass you on your voicemail…
  • Imagine a voice that is heard in conversation…
  • Imagine a voice that is warm, rich, and resonant…
  • Imagine a voice that speaks with color, with emotion, with life.

All of these scenarios are possible if you decide to make the change. You have a better voice inside. It is merely a matter of discovering it. Powered by means of your chest cavity instead of your throat and voice box – or even possibly your nose – your ‘real’ voice has power, depth, and maturity that is not possible without the use of the largest of your 5 resonators, your chest cavity.

If you have ever wondered why James Earl Jones or George Clooney, why Kathleen Turner or Julia Ormond have voices that captivate you, it is because they are powering their sound by means of their chest cavity. All great voices do just that. And those voices are all warm, rich, mellow. They draw you in when you hear them.

When you realize that your voice is part of the image you project, then you should consider just how important your voice is. Can it get you the job you so desire? Or the raise? Or the promotion? Or maybe even the person you would like to date? A resonant sound can do wonders for your confidence. You will stand taller and carry yourself more professionally. And, in the process, you will discover the best means for controlling your nervousness in any form of public speaking because you will learn to breathe with the support of your diaphragm, something all mammals are doing except the most intelligent of the mammals!

The benefits of the techniques you will learn go far beyond the voice and presentation skills however. One woman, a professional golfer, is winning more tournaments. Why? Because when she addresses the ball, she breathes with the support of her diaphragm which relaxes her body. Whereas shallow or lazy increases your stress, breathing with support relieves it. I have clients who sleep better, run further, have lowered their blood pressure, and are able to eliminate minor pain just by breathing.

Why not discover your ‘real’ voice this year? Yes, you will definitely sound better but you will gain many other powerful benefits in the process!
