Most of us don’t articulate ourselves with ease. We all want to be listened to and heard. However most of us aren’t.
To articulate is to be focused, and to be distinct. Articulation is to bring the articles of your being into light.
The feeling that one gets when one watches and listens to those who stand for what they believe in – Those who speak from a place of truth, these poets, these icons -nThe goosebumps are stimulated, the eyes widened, the feeling of rising in your stomach.
Watch those who you love to watch talk. And watch those of whom you love the sound of their voices. They touch us. They move us.
How can we smile with our full beings from your heart to the tip of your head if we cannot articulate ourselves? We cannot, because we are full already with tension.
We hold our feelings back with the tensions in our chest, neck, and jaw. To articulate ourselves we must let our vibrations move, and in turn we shall move others.
The reason that we do not articulate our feelings is because we make ourselves smaller in order not to be seen. We fill ourselves up with stoppages; ‘I shouldn’t say that.’ or ‘Be quite, don’t speak.’ We block ourselves.
I challenge you to be seen – as I am challenging myself now. Give away the blocks that stop you from being heard, let them go.
Loosen your jaw, let it talk you.
‘A leader gives articulation to the imagination of the population.’ – Dr Jordan Peterson
