Love's a Flame.. Setting the world on fire with song! In this month's edition of the Rose Window Newsletter: 🌹 Flame Album Launch - Tickets now available!! 🌹 BLOG/ ZOOMCAST - The Speaker's Voice with Elaine Powell 🌹 ROSY THANKYOU TO MY CHOIRS 🌹 COACHING - claim the joy, magic and power of your voice
Thank you for listening, reading and staying tuned! Sending you all a big singing hug
🌹 🎶 The Speaker's Voice🎶🌹 On this month's episode of Vocal Revolution (video below - or listen on Apple Podcasts) Elaine Powell - Professional Speaker, Peak Performance & Public Speaking Coach Research shows that Public Speaking is our No 1 fear, above death! Elaine shares her golden nuggets of wisdom on how to create an unstoppable mindset and become a confident, powerful communicator.
1. Be comfortable with the uncomfortable The growth is in the stretch - Elaine Powell Talking about the main inhibitors of public speaking - lack of confidence, fear of failure and perfectionism, Elaine encourages us to listen to the way we talk to ourselves and to address our fears honestly. It's absolutely natural and normal to feel nervous about public speaking, especially if it's new to us, as it can trigger powerful flight or fight survival responses. The good news is that we can develop both the skills and mindset to grow beyond our discomfort. We can access states of powerful, creative expression and enjoy an authentic experience with our audiences in the moment.
2. Let Go! Trust that life is always for me - Elaine Powell Elaine shares her deep insights about getting into a flow state of surrender when she speaks. One of the fundamental strategies she recommends, like many of my other guests, is breathing deeply, so that we can row, row, row our boats gently down the stream. Rather than battle ourselves, we can learn to trust in the stories and wisdom we have, not just within us, but in everything around us - the whole universe!
3. You Have a Voice for a Reason Get in touch with your why, know that you've gone through whatever you've gone through for a reason and part of that reason is to make a huge difference in someone else's life - they're waiting to hear from you - Elaine Powell One of the things that helps us surrender our fears about speaking is connecting to a bigger purpose for our voices. For me personally, this dissolves self consciousness which is usually small minded worries and insecurities. A Big Why has the power to inspire, uplift and soothe not just ourselves but also to enchant and enthral our audience. It enables us to alchemise our experiences into heart spun gold for our listeners. By sharing our hard won wisdom from our life lessons, our voices become a vessel of transformation. Whether it's having a chat with someone on the bus, posting on social media or giving a speech onstage, your story can bring hope, comfort and encouragement to others.
Your Responses We'd love to hear what you gleaned from this episode/ blog! Please do let us know in the video/ podcast comments or drop me a line!
Your voice matters and can bring great service to this mad, crazy world. May we all be bold and brave this July in sharing our wisdom and creativity generously with each other.
🌹 🎶 Be well, be safe, breathe deep, sing loudly - Lots of love, virtual hugs and good singing vibes
A Big Rosy Thankyou to My Choirs It's been an extraordinary term of singing both virtually and in person in woody glens or circles of logs, accompanied by parakeets and traffic.
Thanks to all my brave, bold singers in Welcome Choir, ManSong, Caterham Choir, Carers Support Centre Choir and Lung Songs for their perseverance. I am also hopeful that the Hive Community Choir & HeartSong will be able to resume meeting soon.
