Events impact us with a vibration -- like a guitar string being struck. If we don't or can't express our truth, the impact it's stored in the body as stress. Energy comes in but not back out. It's easier to block expression rather than its reception. Having to protect the vulnerable core, choosing silence, hiding, are strategies developed because of fear or shame. Better to be quiet, hold the breath, block expression. Blocked energy over time can create health issues, such as high blood pressure, or problems with the thyroid gland.

Use toning exercises and mantra to practice sound and resonance. And sing!
