  • Are You Painting Yourself Into The Picture?

    Hi Guys,

    Please check out my latest interview on Reba Linker's show "Paint Yourself Into The Picture," where I share my journey into the heart-voice connection and how it enabled me to break out of the box and find my authentic self and empower others to share their message powerfully.  Enjoy!

    May "The Voice" Be With You,

  • How To Speak When You're Sick

    Hey, let's face it.  We all get sick every once in a while.  Now, what do you do when being sick affects your voice?  Let's jump right in.

    I got the inspiration for this post because a few of weeks ago, I had the flu, and I was totally useless to the world for several days.  After a few days of slow improvement, I was getting ready to give a teleseminar for Women's Prosperity Network, and I was debating whether to cancel.  I hadn't completely recovered yet, and the day before the seminar I had slept for 16 hours.

    Somehow, I was able to do my 1-hour teleseminar the next day, and no one had a clue that I was sick and that I had to go to bed right after the call.  How did I accomplish that? By using the breathing and projection techniques that I teach, and having a clear line of intention to help as many people as possible on the call by powering up their voices.  To get more details about these techniques, you can refer to some of my previous blogs on breathing, and changing up your energies.

    By applying these techniques, I was able to conserve my energy while delivering my message with power and confidence.  Now, I'm not advocating that you give a class or give a public speech if you run the risk of infecting someone else or of causing further harm to yourself.  In my case, I was able to judge that given where I was in the recovery stage, that I'd be able to pull off a one-hour teleclass and that I wouldn't infect anyone over the phone.  So for every case, be the judge of your own energy and weigh out all the possible consequences.
    I'd like to hear from you.  Was this helpful?  What other topics regarding your voice would you like me to cover in my blog?  I'm here to serve in the best way I can, and your feedback will go a long way in helping me accomplish that.

    Thanks for all your support -- until next time,   May "The Voice" Be With You!

  • Are You Speaking From The Heart?

    You may think that your message is heartfelt, but is it coming across that way?  How can you be sure?

    I've listened to all sorts of speakers. Some great, some mediocre. And while most speakers I've listened to are very knowledgeable and passionate about their subject matter, sometimes speakers fail to transmit the love behind the message.

    Ask yourself: why do you do what you do? Why do you choose a particular topic to talk about? Why do you choose a particular audience?  In the end, you're helping people in one way or another.  Whether it be getting them in touch with their emotions or helping them become financially independent.

    So you're coming from a place of love.  But are you transmitting it in your voice? Are you screaming your message? Or are you not connecting with people because your voice is lacking energy and passion?

    Remind yourself of why you're speaking to people in the first place. What is your end goal?  And as you're speaking, put your hand over your heart.  There's no way for your message not to be heartfelt when you're speaking from the heart.  There's real power in feeling your own heartbeat.  And as you feel your own heartbeat, your voice will be infused with love and passion, which in turn, will touch people on an emotional level.

    Try this at your next speaking engagement, recording gig or your next conversation with a loved one and let me know how it goes. And until next time, may "The Voice" be with you and Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

    Heart to Heart, 

     Jean-Marc
