When we sing our brain releases the neurotransmitter endorphins and dopamine in our body. Both substances lift up our feelings and reduce our stress.
If we sing emotional, we exhaust our negative emotions and become happy…
If we sing in a choir with other people, we get connected to the people and don’t feel alone anymore.
Even better if we sing very emotional Gospels, Ragas, Bhakti songs for God, we can connect with God or the divine.
This is the easiest way to connect with God!
We can learn to improvise or to sing free instead to sing learned songs. It doesn’t matter how it sounds, it is more important that we enjoy it.
As a Taoist I have learned to sing free, it is called Soul Singing. This means we sing out our soul or what is in us. When we repeat a pattern of some notes, we should intentionally change what we sing.
We put one palm 5 to 10cm in front of our heart chakra and the other hand like a karate hand with the thumb pointing upward and fingers pointing forwards in front of our first hand. And then we sing what is coming from inside.
Where can we sing?
If we drive a car, we sing, and the car driving is much more relaxed. The singing will calm us down and somehow make it easier to be focused and relaxed when we drive.
The Chinese and Tibetan healing are using healing sounds and sound-mantras to heal the body and to spiritualize our being. These sound techniques are very powerful. After an extended training, we can go with healing sounds or sound-mantras within seconds in a blissful and calm state, or we can heal with them!!!! And we can even make the healing sounds in silence/ remote. Still, it works!
The other choice is we chose some Karaoke songs; we can find them on YouTube and sing after them.
