"Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder." - Rumi
Start by knowing where you are:
Ready to start using your voice confidently? Start where it's safest and slowly expand:
"But what it my truth will trigger my audience??"
From a chakra perspective: we have a throat chakra, but we don't have ear chakras. The throat chakra governs speaking your truth, but the heart chakra governs giving and receiving. When you listen with your heart instead of your head, you create space in which others are more free to use their voices.
