“The feeling of expressing a true, soul song with an open voice while being of service to others is deeply exhilarating and freeing!”
— Mj Vermette, Sacred Fire Music
WHAT IS INTUITIVE SINGING?
Intuitive singing makes it possible to free yourself from the pressure and anxiety of singing as a performance or trying to make yourself sound a certain way. It’s a path that lets you express yourself naturally — instinctually — with a calm mind, a joyous, open heart and loving intention.
It is a holistic approach that helps you align your own vibration to that of which you allow to be expressed through you. This is done with a clear intention of being the conduit for this vibration with your body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Furthermore, intuitive singing allows sound vibration to be conveyed through you rather than from you — as an intentional and mindful gift to both yourself and others.
What if you could sing anywhere, trusting your inner guidance, without worrying about how you sound or what to sing?
Imagine wanting to sing about a waterfall. The traditional approach to singing would most likely involve writing or learning a song that speaks about the waterfall and the story around it. You would be focused on learning the song, performing it with good technique, with the hope that anyone listening would enjoy it.
As an intuitive singer, you would instead tap into your insight and your creativity; interpreting the energy of the waterfall. Honouring it with your natural voice. You could be inspired to express your song in any language, including “gibberish” (non-lexical vocables). Your attention would be placed on offering a grounded, authentic song. One that could be defined as a cross between vocal improvisation (scat singing), devotional singing, and sound healing.
“Working with MJ really changed my relationship to my voice. I became less afraid of it, more raw and expressed through it. I made sounds and movements that I didn’t know were possible. She was so open and supportive. I’m so grateful for the time we had together and would recommend working with her to everyone, novice and professional alike. Thank you dear MJ, I will always cherish our time together and I look forward to more! ”
