voice is power when you own your voice you own your power I am a communication strategist and teach empowerment through voice with my birthday next week it actually begins 53 years since I created the vocal awareness method which teaches mindful leadership and communication mastery throughout all these decades I've had the privilege of teaching Academy award-winning actors Tony
00:38
award-winning performers Grammy award-winning singers Olympic gold medal athletes Hall of Fame athletes in multiple sports broadcasters around the globe politicians leaders and something I say to all of them in a first lesson is that you brought the talent you brought the gift to your discipline but someone actually taught you every single thing you do which allowed you to
01:09
fulfill your vision but think about it who teaches us to be ourselves you see speech is habit we don't even think about it we just talk and we don't even know we have a choice and how we want to be known but you see every single thing in life revolves only around two things to choose to do something or to choose not to never matters how scary it is our seemingly daunting even an abdication we make a
01:43
choice by walking away but in empowerment through voice vocal awareness mindful leadership I only care does that choice empower us or disempower us the goal is sovereignty supreme excellence or an example of it we live in a society where perception is reality doesn't matter what's true merely what we perceive it to be becomes the truth
02:14
so tonight you're going to begin to learn how to choose how you actually want to be known we do have a choice it is not just the message but the messenger it is not simply what we say but how we say it that matters every one of these very talented focused individuals in their skill set is very
02:43
structured very disciplined one of the axioms and vocal awareness is that structure does not impinge it liberates freedom without Direction is chaos so tonight we're going to learn seven rituals that create a meticulous structure that will enable you to be who you are let's all stand please cup your hands behind your ears like
03:21
this and simply say when I ask you to in a moment when I speak I need to be aware in 3 2 when I speak and put your hands down that's your voice as we know you please take note because it's going to change profoundly in a few minutes now all mastery in any form requires the
03:52
integration of mind body spirit and all mastery in any form is only integrated at the subtlest of levels so that begins with our body language the body speaks and it begins with stature stature is not simply standing up straight stature is claiming your greatness embodying how you want to be known core begins 3
04:24
inches below your navel so we gracefully elegantly pull a thread right up through the top of the crown chakra just like this and we don't stop here follow-through is always necessary for efficiency in everything so we pull that thread and put our arms down we're going to do it again but notice the first thing your body does it inhales watch embody ourselves as men and women of
04:54
stature claiming who you are notice how your chest opens your core is engaged stature is not standing up straight the first of the seven rituals all rituals have a spiritual foundation begins with saying thank you we say this internally thank you to God thank you to source or simply a deep thank you to ourself our
05:27
Creator take a moment and take in the thought of saying thank you please and notice how quiet the room just got notice the first thing your bodies did they inhaled now turn off your left brains you don't need to empirically understand this for it to work I want you simply to hear the words love
05:59
and let go feel what it might be like to love and let go and please embrace that thought once again the first thing your body's just did was inhale is your space internally externally quieter the next
06:30
ritual the third ritual is breath breath is fuel if we don't put gas on the tank of our cars we don't get to our destination so if it's important enough to say it's important enough to breathe before I say it Tony Robbins used to refer to my rituals as pattern interrupts to create a new pattern you have to exaggerate behavior to break an old one breath is fundamental in that
07:05
change and that claiming of our power but a breath is not only physical it's also emotional it's the quickest way to open up and the quickest way to shut us down so in vocal awareness we don't simply take breath we allow breath and watch what's going to happen in your rib cage and your intercostals I'm going to ask you to allow a slow silent conscious
07:36
loving breath slow sigh conscious loving breath deeper deeper deeper and exhale notice the intercostals expanded a breath is not only physical it is emotional and it's a focused technique that will change every single thing you do when I had you get into stature when
08:09
I asked you to thank source to love and let go the first thing you did was inhale I didn't ask you to breathe it was primal the body breathed it's the body's way of saying thank you for giving me permission to be me I breathe to acknowledge that but it also recognizes that the root of the word spirit spirit who simply means to breathe it's breath I don't want to motivate you this
08:39
evening I want to inspire you I want all of you to go forth and inspire others inspirati to breathe in to us we don't simply drop a rock on the water and it sinks rather it sends concentric rings across the surface of the pond touching everything it comes in contact with our voice our energy does the same with
09:10
everyone we come in contact with so now the fourth ritual to see the edge and arc of sound and this is where those little gauze pads will come in handy so if you take a moment to open them please when you do this at home and if you don't have gauze handy don't use tissue or toweling because it will stick to your tongue rather use a hankie of washcloths something like that I use my
09:44
very special handkerchief in a moment you will see why the most complex joint in the body is the temporal mandibular joint 56 moving parts right there your jaw's capable of many thousands of pounds of force per square inch the base of your tongue muscle was actually the strongest muscle in your body per diameter I don't want you physically emotionally to be the cork in your own bottle so
10:16
technically we're going to learn how to extricate cork from bottle by getting rid of all of this extrinsic tension I'm going to in a moment ask you to take the V of your hand and put it right under your lip line and we're just going to stretch our jaws when you practice this at home and important to do it on the mirror because you're going to see your head dip your head rise all we want to do is keep everything perpendicular no
10:46
upper body tension at all and all I want you to do is stretch gently just like this with the weight of your hand like a pulley this will help you get rid of any TMJ literally relaxing now take that gauze and gently pull your tongues down
11:13
the neck huh don't scrunch up stature source no neck or shoulder tension hand to the jaw and I'm going to do an exercise called a yawn sigh you'll all join me in a moment it's like awning and sighing at the same time it's done exceedingly nasally we put on a weight vest sometimes when we exercise because it positively taxes the
11:48
muscle well the nasality does that for the larynx it literally makes it stronger it literally intensifies pressure flow helping our voices to be more dynamic so listen to how I do it first this will peel paint but wait till we get to do all together then we're gonna actually break glass here we go watch what I do notice I never rush aspirated H
12:22
exceedingly nasal hat as in the word hat no spreading no tightening no constriction all we're doing is pushing air all come core all support follow through follow through we don't throw a run out of target we run and throw through we are learning not to speak to the end of a thought but to speak through the end of the thought while moving energy through so let us
13:10
put ourselves in stature source love and let go what I call a CL be a conscious loving breath hand to your jaw's not forcing from the mandible pulling from the weight of your hand like a pulley gently pulling your tongues down we're gonna count in from five and then I'm going to guide you through this yawn sigh seeing the edge and the arc of
13:43
sound soaring just hanging in struts for a moment sound does not project to the last row of the house its soars it's a law of physics called the Bernoulli effect so here we're going to soar and release in five neck shoulders three deeper deeper deeper and rest we send like the Norman rabbit a coke why aren't we remarkable but notice the vibration immediately
14:23
changing do you notice any tingling cup your hands to your ears the phrases when I speak I need to be aware but in stature conscious loving breath and three two when I speak and rest it's shifting isn't it now we're gonna do this again in a moment but first the
14:58
other rituals of vocal awareness the fifth ritual take my time in all communication it is never how fast but how effective nothing is gained by going too fast potentially everything is lost the sixth ritual introduces the concept of integration and integrity which have the same root source meaning wholeness we listen deeply on the inside to what I
15:30
refer to as our inner voice our deeper self and pay attention on the outside the whole purpose is the sovereignty the supreme excellence of the seventh ritual be my self not two words three words that begin with a capital S notice it does not say present sociologists tell us the greatest fear in society is public speaking they're mistaken the
16:01
greatest fear actually two fears fear of abandonment and ownership of our power the fear of being who we are when we hold our breath when you look away when we wonder what others are thinking we're in the white noise we've abandoned self an empowerment through voice in mindful leaders this work you actually begin to claim who you're capable of being so now sound
16:36
is expressed emotion this isn't just a calisthenic exercise this is art it is your expression so as we go through this one more time followed by the statement when I speak I need to be aware release surrender serve and soar and enjoy the company you keep stature loving and letting go source
17:09
conscious loving breath seeing the edge an arc of sound as our hand goes right under our lip lines no upper body tension gently pulling our tongues down and soaring and five the sound of hat three deeper deeper two [Music] [Applause] superb thank you cup your hands one last
17:52
time when I speak I need to be aware five four three two when I speak and rest sit down I was going to sleep one night in 1980 reading quest magazine when a thought came to me that wouldn't go away until it made me get up and write it down the only paper I had was the cover of the
18:29
magazine which is framed on my studio wall today said voice is the only artistic experience which is both finite and infinite at the same time it is fallible and fragile gone in an instant unseen only felt remember from the past even a long moment ago anticipated sensing its future even as as present as just occurring its temporal visceral organic such a complex simple and
19:00
beguiling transcendent state that's what came through about ten o'clock one night as it began working with this thought over the next few years one of the things I did was substitute another word for the word voice life is the only artistic experience which has both finite and infinite at the same time love it is fallible and fragile gone in an instant unseen only felt and I came
19:31
to understand the paradigm of my work to travel the globe helping us learn how to live life and love and express it through the power of our voices the integrity of who were called to be my vision is to change the world through voice thank you for allowing me to teach tonight enjoy the journey thank you you
