Speakers and Singers: Can You Hear Yourself Thinking?
Nevertheless, this is an invaluable skill to have.
The fact is that the majority of people do not possess that skill, as they are simply out-of-balance and out of alignment. Some of them think long and hard before producing the speaking or singing sounds and thus, evidently, “missing the boat”.
The others, opposite; they speak and sing without boarders and think, if at all, after the fact.
It is especially crucial for those who have been undergoing a non-surgical voice repair ordeal. In fact, the above-described imbalance was also a contributing factor to their voice disorder in the first place.
The human being who is, in fact, in balance, is most likely able to think and act on a parallel track, which means that his/her subconscious mind and conscious mind are aligned and thus, work on a parallel track with each other.
The subconscious mind is responsible for the thinking and the conscious mind plays the role of the driving force. If they are in agreement with each other, the voice should come out as the outcome of the above equation.
If the synchronicity between the subconscious and conscious mind is disrupted, the person will not be able to produce any sound upon design and will get stagnated with their thinking and no action, or with the action, which is not supported by any structural thinking.
In this case, the singer most likely will be going out of tune and out of timing and, no doubts, sooner or later, will end up with some kind of voice disorder.
The regular speaking person, who is very loud in an everyday basis, screaming and shouting at all given times and without boarders, also will end up with some kind of voice damage down the road. As these people have no understanding of any kind that their voice is also one of their organs and if abused, it will lose its functionality, just like a liver will give up its functions for the alcoholics.
To conclude – The balance is everything, and so is the knowledge. Stop yelling and screaming before, during and after the voice repair work.
Speak in moderation and be always on guard that the voice is a fragile human organ and could snap and become damaged at any given time.
For singers - don’t push your voice to the extreme high or low notes without knowledge how to approach and access it. Please learn how to hear yourself thinking and act accordingly and timely.
