Breath of Gratitude
Have you ever been in a situation where you were singing, and even though you had practiced a million times at home, when you got up in front of someone else, your voice started to shake uncontrollably and left you feeling cheated?
I’d like to share an important tool that really works when it comes to singing with confidence. I used to be a nervous wreck during auditions and could not figure out why my voice wouldn’t cooperate with me. By doing the simple breath of gratitude it changed my perspective and actually rewired my nervous system for something awesome. Think about it – doesn’t gratitude feel good? Would you rather feel good before you sing, or defeated?
Like everything I teach, the Breath of Gratitude is integrative, so the more you do it, the more you’ll be able to access the power of it when you really need it.
Watch this video and try this before you sing and it will help you any time you need that extra boost of confidence. By acknowledging what you have in difficult situations, it takes your mind off of what is making your nervous – which is usually your fixation on the idea of a worst case scenario that hasn’t even happened yet. Doing this exercise simply helps you do the opposite. You’re thinking of something that lights up your soul! Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
