A Singer's Prayer

“What if our religion was each other
If our practice was our life
If prayer, our words
What if the temple was the Earth
If forests were our church
If holy water – the rivers, lakes and ocean
What if meditation was our relationships
If the teacher was life
If wisdom was self-knowledge
If love was the center of our being.” – 
Ganga White
No matter your religion, spiritual path, or philosophy, I hope you find some inspiration from these words – many blessings for your journey of inquisitive yoga and/or voice practice! 
A Singer’s Prayer
Oh Great Universal Life Force of which I am a part, that pervades me and emanates from me and others, hear my resonance and allow me to resonate with your frequencies – help me let go of my trying too hard, and let me be vulnerable and open in each moment.
Let me sing with the voice I have today, not with the voice I had yesterday, or will have tomorrow. Let your vibrancy flow through my open throat with no obstruction. Make me an open vessel to expression, releasing ego involvement, while holding with tenderness any old habits that are not yet ready to let go. Help me approach with true gratitude and compassion those parts of me that want to help, but end up getting in the way. Empower me to embrace them and then release them.
Let my voice resonate with, and celebrate, healing and peace, freedom and joy, and the fullness of human experience. Let my true note come forward in practice, and in life. Allow the moments of awareness to grow, permeating my daily existence with the wisdom of patience and unhindered expression. Let each breath be a meditation, and each syllable a prayer.
