    Unless there is a performance or rehearsal scheduled in which I sing, I do not have singing ‘scheduled’ during my day. My beliefs that ‘other things’ are more important prevent me from singing more. The daily VitaMIN homework for MU1206 class 4 encouraged me to bring singing back in my life as a daily routine.
    When asked to sing in public, thoughts of “I didn’t practice this enough”, “What if I mess up?”, “I’m not sure how to start on the right note”, “Will I be able to live up to the listeners’ expectations?”, and “These notes are too high for me to sing perfectly” prevents me from accepting the invitation with enthusiasm.

    I used to think, “I leave composing to the composers” until I discovered that Heartfriends enjoyed the melodies that came to my mind and heart!

    I believe the limiting thoughts that I had of myself. I have felt unworthy most of my life, and did not believe anything I did was of any consequence.
    This was so much of who I thought I was, that I became extremely shy and reclusive in many ways.

    I am singing more and more and I love it. I realized that when my children were young, I always made songs up for them. It was very natural. I did not think much about it until this class.

    Even though I have never studied music or been trained in anyway in regard to music,it is a part of who I AM, and I choose to practice more and more. I believe the angels come when I do, and I am so happy!

    Bravo for your sharing, beloved Dee. Indeed, music is part of who we are. Some have developed their musical skills more then others and... it’s never too late to discover your musical talents, experiment and feel that joy bubbling up inside or your being and consequently touching the hearts of other souls.

    I actually love to sing, but don't have a voice worthy of singing in public. My father said he couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. I realize my bucket has a hole in it, too. :0) That being said, I did create a song a few days ago, which I named, "Singing with Angels". It's not clever like the songs Maria, Carol and David create. Last year during Saint Germain's Alchemy class, I wrote a song to El Morya., "I Love You Truly". I do sing it to him every day.

    So what keeps me from singing more? Thin walls and lack of talent. What keeps me from creating songs? Lack of creativity, but I am working on it..

    Thanks for sharing what’s alive in you, beloved Eileen.
    Your ‘bucket-story’ seems to fit in with the following expression I recently heard, “There is not one musical bone in my body”. Both beliefs, when accepted, create an energy field that seems absolute and unchangeable.
    From your post, I conclude that you are transforming this energy field and subsequently shifting its boundaries. I applaud your willingness to explore your musical talents in a playful ‘hidden’ way. The following interview with Per Bristow may inspire you:
    http://www.perbristow.com...nger-can-you-become/

    When I read your words “It's not clever like the songs Maria, Carol and David create”, I was reminded of Marshall Rosenberg's teaching of Non-violent Communication/A Language of Life. On p. 18 it reads "Another form of judgment is the use of comparisons. In his book, How to Make Yourself Miserable, Dan Greenberg demonstrates through humor the insidious power that comparative thinking can exert over us...". and subsequently become a reality in your life.

    Musical Blessings to you and all readers of this post!

    I am so grateful for all the musical talelnts of others and at home I appreciate the joy that comes with singing spontaneously the songs that are well programmed in me from the hearts center. Now I have broken out into creating my own words to familiar tunes like "zippy-oo-da, zippidy-eh, my or my what a wonderful day, plenty of money coming my way, prosperity and abundance, they're here to stay." Oh what a beautiful morning, of what a beautiful life, I've got a wonderful feeling, abundance is heading my way! Thanksgiving is now my favorite holiday so putting the many things I am grateful for into familiar tunes is becoming fun. Thanks Maria for your encouragement and examples. Music has not been one of my gifts in this lifetime but when i taught first grade I remember enjoying teaching some key lessons by way of songs and I really enjoyed that. Morning sunshine seems to stimualate a joy of singing for me, and also singing to the elementals when I am gardening. There are lots of opportunities to sing in our day, we simply require the spirit to move us to the joy if brings.

    Mary breaks out of her old mold and braving it!
    Copy and paste this weblink to your browser and hear the audio of Mary's little jingles! (As mentioned in her forum post):

    http://audio-published.he...1118_Mary_Topero.mp3

    Are you the next ONE creating AND sharing an audio of your song?

    Here are the steps to make the last part happen:
    1. Call in with a good telephone (not cell phone) to one of our HC rewired phone numbers (such as 206-826-1777) and then dial 3345
    2. Sing/record your song (up to 8 minutes)
    3. Press the # key or hang up when done.

    I stay tuned to new VITA-tunes!
