Singing in the Shower

31 Jan

I have previously discussed the benefits of singing in terms of the physical connection between the brain, the heart, and the voice created by the 10th cranial nerve, or vagus nerve as it is also known. Singing free, uninhibited – whether you know the words or not, whether you hit the notes accurately or note – is a liberator of spirit. It’s healthy.

To those who sing in the shower – you may have been getting additional benefits all along that the rest of us can also enjoy. There is evidence described in the work of a Japanese researcher, Dr.Masara Emoto, suggesting that the molecular structure of water can actually carry and transmit emotions, and thus can be affected by emotions and words. He has drawn a parallel to the human body, which is about 60% water and the Earth, 70% of which is covered by water, and the effects of emotions expressed as words and those held only in thought.

Consider for a moment that everything can be reduced to a common denominator = Energy. Solid objects are energy. Radio waves are Energy. Thoughts are Energy. Everything in the Universe is Energy.

Now consider that Water can act as a magnifier or conductor or Thoughts or Emotions. Then the emotional state that you are in while taking a shower or immersed in water can have either an adverse or beneficial effect on the molecules that make up your body.

If you use your shower to rehearse an argument with the boss, you are focused on anger. Anger magnified by the water surrounding and touching your body is transmuted through the water that comprises your human body. The results? Your anger is amplified and sent as a molecular message to all parts of your body. Anger flows as energy and permeates your Being.

Those who sing in the shower, unabashed by what others may say or think of their vocal skills, and genuinely enjoy the experience are radiating pleasure, happiness and self-love. These energies are also conducted in the same manner and have positive effects of creating a sense of well-being. “Joy” flows as an energy and permeates your Being.

We can take that a step further and use this time to talk to our bodies. If there are areas that hurt or injuries or deformities we can talk to those parts of our body lovingly and speak affirmations of wholeness and health as an outcome.

“If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.” — Deepak Chopra

I catch myself every morning – because as I step into the shower there’s a tendency to start reviewing my day. That can lead to anticipation and rehearsals or confrontations, all of which are just projections anyway. I can remember the words of my spiritual mentor and Elder Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha who once advised to be in a singular focus. In other words, when you’re in the shower – just Be in the shower. Make that the experience. Just focusing on enjoyment of the water on your skin can create a heightened awareness of appreciation. Appreciation creates more.  -Deborah Adler

Take charge and respond with the ability to rule your time in matter/body. Hold yourself as sacred and righteous. BE AS GOD IS. So as you move through life as a whole, learn to BE, OBSERVE, DECIDE. –Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha
