Episode 32: About expressing your spirit, with Lotus Sky

My friend Lotus Sky is a musical channel and shamanic guide who helps people access and share their voices. In the year that we’ve known each other, Lotus Sky and I have bonded over our shared desire to support others in their free expression, but we’ve also opened up to each other about our own personal vocal struggles. So as we continue to discuss growth and our voices on the podcast this month, it was a no-brainer to have Lotus Sky come on and share her story. You’ll hear how this incredible healer of a human lost her voice for three full months, and found a way to heal herself and find even deeper resonance than she had before. This episode is a spiritual journey!

Lotus Sky’s recipe for the “soup” of speaking your truth= 

tune in authentically into yourself + tune into the individual in front of you + intention + safety and courage + compassion for yourself and your audience + release expectation + connection, understanding and growth.
