REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
This book is an experiential journey. Everyone will experience it in differing ways; all I can do is to give you some feedback from my own journey. Trying to free my throat chakra has been an ongoing, genetically influenced challenge for me, so I was grateful to receive it to review, as I might not have chosen to work with it otherwise.
Some of the ground covered in 'Your True Voice' might seem at first glance to be familiar. I thought I would have a basic working knowledge of some of the tools, but putting the methods together with the attunements made everything totally new. Experiencing my own arrogance was humbling, but it was a good exchange for such an increase in understanding.
I found the concept of a written attunement difficult to accept at first, and was surprised when I felt the energy shifting as I read the text out loud. Dielle Ciesco knows what she is doing.
The programme of successive attunements followed by the teaching contained within the exercises is a powerful combination, and led me towards dissolving blocks to developing my own expressive power in a gentle, profound way. Exercises are enhanced by further links to internet video clips.
There is a lot of variety in the activities suggested, they are deceptively simple and well presented. Physical exercises for tongue and throat release. Breathwork. Listening. Playing with the alphabet, discovering the energy contained within letters and word. Sigils.
Rewriting the Story - a fantastic tool to work with. The reference to the Toltec was new to me, and I give grateful thanks for the internet for further information on this.
There is a lot of powerful information in this useful manual. I have found it easy to work with and profoundly transforming, and look forward to continuing to work, and rework with it.
