The outlet for your voice.

— May 11, 2022 —

W R I T T E N  B Y  Allison Mondel

Have you ever thought… If only I knew exactly how I am supposed to use my voice!

This is one of the most common questions I hear, borne from a deep, soulful longing mixed with some heady, existential frustration.

Let’s reframe the question so it seems less fretful:

What is the current outlet for me, my creativity, and my voice that is uniquely aligned with my identity, skills, talents, desires, and soul’s calling?

The sense of lack and confusion you may feel stems from fear and (omg lemme tell you) breeds overthinking. But lemme be honest: sometimes the current outlets that exist may just not feel like a good fit.

Sometimes your particular set of circumstances are just outside the realm of what seems normal, acceptable, straight arrow-ish, or “good enough” to fit into the mold. You may or may not consider yourself a revolutionary, but you may have that uncomfortable sense that what you want to do does not yet have its place.

It hasn’t been born. Invented. Ideated. Manifested. Why?

Because, my dear one, you may be the person to create that.

Conventional outlets for your voice remain vital, but please do not allow the current powers that be dictate or limit how you express your creative desires in this world of infinite possibility. 

You are unique. You are not simply a cog in some earth-bound wheel. That is worth celebrating, not lamenting!

The key ingredient, however, is your willingness to allow for something new to even be possible. I’m talking about a miracle, a shift in your current perspective, a temporary pause in your lack and confusion, so that a New Thing can be envisioned and ultimately, be made manifest.

Of course there is an outlet for your voice. If your desire comes from deep within, then listen for the guidance that calls from deep within.

You will be granted the will, strength, and courage to rise into your calling and ultimately create something sacred and painfully lovely that only you are meant to share with the world.

Guided Prompts for your Voice’s Unique Outlet
Take a moment to breathe, center awareness within the heart space, and enter into a state of stillness.  Allow these questions to guide your higher mind into clarity.

Where do you feel frustrated with the way you show up with your voice?

What do you feel called to do with your voice?

What are the fears or limiting beliefs that come up for you?

Do you have a desire to create something new?

What is holding you back from your desire? 

Prayer for Finding the Place for Your Voice
Dear Father, Mother, Creator,
I am ready to use my voice.
I allow my voice to rise.
I pray for the clarity to see the vision for my voice clearly.
Please help me understand the place for my voice, and how I may use my voice in divine service. 
I trust and pray for the ideal outlet for me and my voice.
I pray for the removal of fear, frustration, confusion, vagueness, and lack as I honor my calling for my voice.
I pray for the guidance and wisdom to move my inner desire into its unique, perfected, worldly form.
I am grateful for my unique gifts, experience, and identity, and know that there is a place for me and my voice.
May I be an instrument of beauty, light, and healing for the betterment of this world. 
May I discover and manifest the beautiful pathway for my voice, as you have willed.
And so it is. Amen.
